This was our 5th year in Huatulco, 2nd year at Princess Mayev. Owner Ricardo and his staff are simply the best. We like staying at the Princess for the view from the rooms (Oceanside) and the incredible pool. A short walk to La Crucecita or Santa Cruz makes this location ideal. The restaurant has a good variety of food and... More

We have stayed in this hotel three times and really like the relaxed atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, lovely pool and sea views. Rooms are spacious, clean and modern, with two double beds, small table and balcony (our room cost a little more for a sea view but it was definitely worth it). Bathroom could perhaps do with a lick... More

They upgraded our room for a small fee to have direct access to the swimming pool. The service was great and the room nice and clean. The restaurant had breakfast buffet which was ok but not a lot of variety. The only concern was when we ordered room service and had to cancel it since it took forever.

I recently stayed at room 209 in the hotel, the room was spacious and have a small balcony. The view was not towards the pool but towards the street and the green mountain in front of hotel. The swimming pool is big and always clean. During my stay, I had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant, food is pricy and... More

The hotel is really cheap because they offer good accomodation and is pretty clean, no noise and the staff is really nice and helpful, also it has an excellent view of the beach. The lobby offers excellent tours and packages for the customers. I'll definetely stay there again.

Stayed at the Princess Mayev Hotel for two nights on the back end of a two week trip to Oaxaca. I'm stunned that there are not more reviews on this establishment because the manager and staff of this property are exceptional, and the setting of the hotel and it's grounds are exquisite. From check in, a bell boy *ran* down... More

We always do the resort thing but we decided to do something a little different thanks to grandma...so we rented a room a few doors down from them as they have been coming back to this place for years. We clearly understand why, everything you plus a great view!

We stumbled upon this hotel with no reservations. We got a suite with full kitchen for 700 pesos a night. Quite a value. The views are gorgeous and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is Superb, try the Enchiladas suizas. The restaurant staff was very attentive to our needs. They can help you book a day trip... More
