The hotel looks nice in photos and the courtyard is picturesque. It's in a good location, and offers free, if spotty, WiFi. But the benefits end there. First of all, from 6:00 AM the parrots that live outside start screeching every 2 seconds nonstop. The blackout curtains are so thin that they allow light to pour in even in the... More

Just returned from a pleasant weekend stay in Huatulco.. found this hotel on Hotwire for $50 a night - read all the comments and compared prices. It is NOT a five star hotel but it's clean and affordable.. the staff is nice and will try to accommodate guests. You wont' pay extra for children in room and the free breakfast... More

We stayed here for October, by coincidence during the yearly triathlon. The hotel need maintenance and some of the rooms are better than other one. The breakfast, which was included in our rate, was very good thought. Below you will find pros & cons: PROS: - The location is very good, right on the marina and since we have a... More

Hotel Location: on marina is unbeatable for ease Amenities: Yes, there are balconies with every room, but no furniture. No coffee available before 7 am in restaurant- no reading light by bed. Air conditioner temperature cannot be adjusted in the room: it is either on or off. The hotel has the appearance of a resort that was just not quite... More

This hotel overlooks the marina where the cruise ships dock. My room (a suite) had a fantastic view of the marina and the harbor, with a balcony where my friends and I gathered each evening before dinner. The rooms themselves were clean, but quite basic ( I had a kitchenette, but not utensils -- the kitchen eventually supplied us with... More

I booked this place from europe over expedia but I would not do it again. We paid more than 50 Euro per night and you can have it much cheaper in La Crucecita. The plus is definitly the location in Santa Cruz, just a little walk around the Marina and you are at Santa Cruz beach, cam enjoy the sun,... More

I'm sorry to have to write this negative report for an otherwise enjoyable stay but I promised myself and the girl at the desk that I would do it and so I shall! You see the problem is that hotels.com and the hotel staff described the room as a SUITE that was appropriate for 5 people and we were stuck... More

My parents, who are in their 60's, wanted to spend the New Year by the beach. We settled for Huatulco as we were touring Chiapas and Oaxaca and it was the logical thing to do. We had been to Huatulco several times before, usually at Las Brisas in Tangolunda Bay, but this year we booked so late and through a... More
