Cabanas with beautiful view of the beach. We stayed here for 5 nights over christmas and really enjoyed it. The bedsheats and towels were a bit stained. The restaurant serves a good breakfast at a decent price. If animals like frogs and the odd cockroach bothers you, well then you shouldn't stay in a bungalow located in the trees by... More

Truely spectacular views spoil the sad reality. I got their most expensive cabana with the best view - what a steal I thought. I got bitten every night by bedbugs. The view was so great that I stayed; I just won't go back. Previous night I had stayed at their sister hotel in Puerto Angel "Buena Vista", and got bedbugs... More

We were booked to stay in Alta Mira two nights but only ended up staying one night because we were pretty grossed out by the place. When we first arrived, a really nice woman who works there showed us a room in a building with a few other rooms. Even with all the windows open it was, cavernous, dark, dingy... More

Location: Alta Mira is basically a cluster of individual bungalows perched on the side of a hill overlooking the beach in Mazunte. To drive to the hotel, you turn off the main road and go up a very steep driveway to reach the reception area, which is at the top of the hill above all the bungalows. On foot, there... More

I have just returned of one of the most amazing time of my life..... Mazunte was exactly as i expected. I travelled with another 3 friends; we took a flight to Huatulco and then i went by taxi to Mazunte. The taxi driver left us at San Agustinillo (a town before Mazunte) and we couldnt find a place there, and... More

The Alta Mira Bungalows are cute, have great views, and are a good deal. The staff is friendly. The bungalows, which may just be the nature of these style accomodations, are very damp. The sheets are damp, which I find hard to sleep with. There are also lots of critters, we had a frog in ours. I would still come... More

We called them several times since there's no possibility to book it through internet , but at the end we did it !!!. The people was highy friendly and kind and the bungalows have a super panoramic terrace with amazing views of the beach. The food , homemade , was wonderful (i.e. guacamole ) . I'd highly suggested the Bungalows... More

I arrived in Mazunte having been staying at nearby Playa Ventanilla. The Alta Mira bungalows are simple, clean and unpretentious and they are still the best in the area. The prices for meals and drinks are about double that of the beach or in town, but that is always the way in hotels or hostels in my experience. It is... More

having read several reviews about the Altamire, it seems to confirm that we are not only people there who have been treated with extreme hostility. Nothing that was agreed previously, worked out. For the last night, they even trasferred us to the family's other hotel in a nearly town as it seemed that more important people arrived. It did not... More
