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

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'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

I have a family member that loves in Huatulco and between my annual visits and those of other family members that frequent the region, I am shocked that we have yet to discover this hotel! It is comparatively much better economically and in comfort than reports that I have had from hotels in the immediate vicinity. It was great to... More
