We had a great time! The food and the staff were top notch! Plan to come back next year!!! The spa is world class and not super expensive. Very clean and beautiful. The weather was 90 degrees and sunny every day. Would rate this resort 5 stars!!
First time visiting this Hotel and we were happy with the great service by the pool, restaurants and our room.Rooms -Were cleaned everyday. Daily we had clean towels and fridge restocked . We even had turndown service without requesting it.Entertainment - Was great entertainment by the pool Valdamir, Dulce,Adal and Francisco are so attentive to all guests.Server by the pool Jose Luis was always ensuring we had a drink and very polite. Nightly entertainment was great but I notice a lot of guests at dinner during 930pm Restaurants- No need to make reservations for dinner.We showed up and we were seated immediately. Food at all the restaurants were great and need to visit them all. Grounds- All facilities around hotel were clean and well maintained. Overall we enjoyed our stay and thank you for your great service.
I vacation a lot, and this resort was one of the best I've visited in years. It's not so big that it's crazy, there isn't a bad view in the joint (and other than the rooms with a swim up pool lane in the front at pool level, think all the rooms are effectively the same!). I've also been everywhere in Mexico, and Huatulco is awesome, safe and beautiful. The weather too is better than the Atlantic side, because it's far further south, and warmer. Anyway, to the resort: Everything overlooks the bay (bahia), and the food is better than average - and the attentive staff a pleasure... Ill give you some pro's/con's/observations, and you can do what you want with them:Pro's:A la carte restauraunts that you don't need to book! It's awesome! Just walk in, and be served! (Caveat - if you want Teppanyakki you need to book - cuz the space is limited).Great facilities for a resort, and lots of activities, some of which aren't lame!Clean grounds, clean rooms, attentive and friendly staff.Way more pro's than con's, just a great joint.Con's:You've heard it before... chairs are in seriously short commodity, and if you are a all day lounge dweller type, you'd better take this competition seriously. It was really the biggest negative.The toilet/commode is not very private! You'll certainly need to tell your roomie that you're about the hit the loo - to keep awkwardness down. This might be a North American hangup... the glass was strategically frosted though!No screens on the patio door (no keeping them open at night), and the privacy on the balconies is ok, but not great. Observations: If you like less observable beach, find the path that takes you to the bay to the left (looking out) of the hotel... total amazing paradise.The bay to the right is also awesome, but a bigger walk. You won't see anyone... it's amazing!Castaways and Oceans were my favourite places to eat... away from the throngs too!Mariachi band tends to overstay it's welcome in Tamarido restaurant... fun and great, but little invasive after a while.Water was cool and refreshing, not Carribean warm - you can stay in for hours, but it does cool you off - standard Pacific temps.Don't try to walk to town, it took us 2.5 hours, and a cab is about 70 pesos ($4). Save your feet. But do visit town!If you like booze, don't buy it at duty free - but it in town... so inexpensive it's mind-boggling (I'm Canadian).Basically the resort and the town and the beach is great. Just go, relax, and don't stress about getting that perfect lounge.
This was our second time to Huatulco. Our first trip was December 2015 and recently returned from our January 6-14, 2017 stay. We can't say enough about the weather of Huatulco. We have been there 15 days and have seen maybe 6 clouds the entire time. Always blue skies and 90 degrees. Just doesn't get any better for a vacation.We stayed in Building 6 again which is close to the pool and all rooms enjoy a great ocean view. I will say we had one night in Building 5 and that had an extremely nice view.I have to give a shout out to Apple Vacations and Secrets Resorts (and Marco from Apple Vacations) as there was a airplane delay going home. Long story short, we got another night free in Mexico and it was great. Nothing better than an 8 night stay at Secrets Huatulco instead of 7. A few things that make Secrets Huatulco awesome:1. View - There is no other resort we have been too with such a wonderful view. With the elevation difference from the beach to the hotel, you get an awesome view that never gets old to look at. Each room having an ocean view is a huge plus!2. Cleanliness - Everything about the pool is clean and modern. The rooms, restaurants, pool, grounds, etc. 3. Service - Most importantly, the service is what makes this resort. Everyone goes out of their way to make your stay the best possible. Love the pool side servers, bartenders, restaurant staff, etc. If you need something, just ask. They typically will do what they can to accommodate your request. No doubt we will return to Secrets Huatulco for another stay in the future.
The staff, the room and the location are great. The beach was private but difficult to traverse from the property to the water. Soft sifting sand gave way underfoot as you tried to climb the embankment up from the beach. On our last 2 days new loungers were brought out which were appreciated for comfort and accommodating everyone looking for a spot around the pools. Not a lot of shading trees around the pools so you need an umbrella (was +33celcius everday). By the way the pools were awesome. We enjoyed the buffet cafe for breakfast - pretty good variety but if staying longer than a week would become boring.
