“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2011

We stayed at the Marina Park Plaza in April 2011 and loved the place. We're not typically the "all inclusive" type but we like to meet people and enjoy some conveniences as well. The MPP condo-hotel was a great blend of both worlds allowing us to eat in when we wanted, grab a quick bite at Senor Pucks when we were lazy or walk to any of the restaurants in the nearby villages. (If you don't feel like walking to the villages, it's a $3 cab ride). There is also a good spa there for those seeking a little pampering.

Being a new hotel, we were curious about "growing pain" issues. However, the overall construction and finish was excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We happened to be there on what was one of the busiest weekends of the year, yet the pool (with a swim-up bar) was never crowded.

In short, we had a great experience and highly recommend it.

This is a great place to visit because the town has direct Continental flight from Houston every day. It is not your typical "time-share" infested town so you are likely to spend some decent time without too much hassle. The terrain is rocky and the climate was warm-hot but no humidity at this time of the year. The beaches were fantastic with the availability of snorkeling, tuna and jack fishing on almost every boat. It is cheaper than other resort because it is much less touristy. We stayed in Marina Plaza Park. Hotel was beautiful, very clean, and condos were very well furnished with great art in rooms and all in all was a very taste-ful place.

We stayed February 5-25, 2011 at the Marina Park Plaza. Overall, our stay was fine... the rooms were beautiful and well laid out. Beds were quite comfortable and the kitchen was outfitted well. Since they just opened Dec 1, we had daily issues that needed to be looked at by maintenance... water leaks, air conditioning not working, etc. The issues were addressed promptly every time.
We had a few things that we didn't agree with regarding their condo rules:
• You have to wear a wrist band so security knows you're allowed on the premises (like an AI hotel).
• You cannot take food or drink from your room down to the pool area, and must purchase drinks at $3/each for beer from the swim-up bar or food from Senor Puck's. You can charge it to your room.
• You have to give them 2 hours notice if you are having visitors, and they have to be gone by 8pm.
• They locked the air conditioner remote so that you cannot make it go lower than 23C, but you also cannot make the fan speed up to cool the room down faster. Since you have to remove your room key when not in the room, it turns off the condo's power so often it took a very long time to cool down a room.
There aren't any laundry facilities or BBQs in the condo complex. If you are staying for any length of time, laundry would be handy but instead you have to send it out. They don't have any extendable lines on the patio to dry swimsuits, etc. either.
The pool was very nice, but the way it is situated, there isn't much for a breeze and most days we could only stay in the sun for 10-15 minutes before jumping into the pool because we were cooking. There are a few loungers that have a red mattress on them and are adjustable so you can lay down or sit up to read, but the majority of them aren't adjustable, so not too comfortable for relaxing in the sun and reading.
I think they still need a lot of help in the way of getting their staff up to speed on procedures, but the front desk was very helpful and accommodating with us. We ate at Senor Puck's a few times, but weren't impressed with any of the food. It was convenient if you needed a quick bite and didn't want to go anywhere but the food left a lot to be desired.
Their wi-fi worked quite well the first week we were there, but after that it was sporadic, and often you had to go outside the condo to get logged on or it was down.
The location is great as it's a short walk to either Santa Cruz or La Crucecita and Super Che is a close if you need anything. We enjoyed our stay but probably wouldn't stay there again, mainly because of the rules and it was set up too much like a hotel.

Being from Manitoba, we wanted to watch the Scotties curling games. We were advised by our Sunwing representative Antonio at the Hotel Castillo Huatulco to go to Senor Pucks at the Marina Park Plaza. We took a taxi there and asked about watching curling and they were most accommodating. This is an awesome sports bar! I believe they have a total of 8 big screen TVs and we along with other Canadians were able to watch Canadian curling. The food was very good as well as the beverages and both were very afffordable. If anyone like ourselves wants to watch any Canadian sports, go to Senor Pucks. This is a new 100% Canadian owned hotel which has just opened recently.

We had the pleasure of staying at the Condo Hotel for a week. The amenities were fabulous the food was great at Senor Pucks especially Ukrainiun Night with homemade perogies and cabbage rolls. We found the staff very friendly and accomodating. Most everything is within walking distance and the people are very friendly. Shout out to Lolo the bartender his service and manner were excellent. The hotel pool was very nice and set up well. We had no problem of finding a vacant chair. The beaches in the area are very nice especially St. Augustin i would recommend a trip out there for snorkeling and a relaxing day by the beach. All in all a very nice get away and can't wait to come back.

We were tired of previous all-inclusive trips to Huatulco that still found us off the resort most of our holiday. The Marina Park Plaza offered us the best possible solution, especially given it's location, walking distance to both our favourite towns. We were able to control our day...stay around the pool, go to the nearby beach or walk into Santa Cruz or to La Crucecita for shopping or site-seeing. These are such safe tourist towns to explore. The rooms were much more elegant than anticipated and staff at this condo-hotel were so friendly and helpful. We will be back again for sure!
