“Great Experiance.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2011

We recently returned from a one week stay at the Marina Park Plaza. Lanny and Lloyd have created a wonderful getaway for all. The rooms are set up beautiful with all the amenities in a condo hotel setting for all ages. The balconies are roomy and have a nice view. Front end staff along with hotel, maintenance and all other staff are very helpful for anything you are looking for and very friendly. The pool is not heated but in the above 30 degree temperature it is quite refreshing when spending a day at the pool. Lolo who runs the swim up bar has to be the friendliest bartender we have met in all our travels and it is a must to have Lolos Bannana Monkey (drink) before returning home. Randy who runs Senor Pucks sports bar has it set up with a Canadian background with all the Canadian sports while you are enjoying great food and drink. The restaurant staff all speak good english and do a wonderful job. The beach is a short walk as well as food store which has everything you need. We as Canadians were concerned about travelling to Mexico with all the problems you hear on the news but saying this we found Huatulco to be safe wherever you go. The town of La Crucecita is a busy little centre that we spent a lot of time shoping and seeing the differant lifestyle while not once feeling unsafe or unsure of our surroundings. There was families with young children downtown in the evening that we spoke with who felt the the same.
Before we left I read a past review of a family with children who was unhappy with the Hotel policies. This concerned me and now that I have been there I feel that the policies are set in place for the safety and security of all patrons and staff of the facility.
All in all a great vacation and would reccomend this hotel to anyone who likes a quiet relaxing and safe holiday.

I had the great opportunity to stay in this hotel for a week in Dec The staff and the guests were all a pleasure to be with. The hotel is brand new so everything is in perfect condition. The open lobby is beautiful with comfortable couches and a nice breeze. The food at Senor Pucks was always great and the service both in the restaurant and the pool bar was second to none. When we were sadly leaving I left my small change purse with my visa card and Mexican money on the kitchen counter when we checked out only to discover this on the way to the airport. The driver from the hotel lent me his cell phone to call back and have someone retrieve it for me. Luckily we were the first group to the airport so when he came back with the next group he had my little stash all taped up with not a dime missing and returned it personally! Not only is this hotel a great place to stay but the whole staff from management down the line are all honest and caring people. Thank you everyone there for the most wonderful week!

the place is beautiful, brand new, good location-5 minutes to the beach.. close to downtown..great sports bar with all the sports games you want to watch..western food.. great pool with swim up bar..LOLO the bar tender is awesome!! mostly western Canadians!!
guidelines.. you aren't allowed to bring you own drinks or food to the pool area, only drinks purchased from the swim up bar and resturant. no smoking, there is no barbequing or public area for cooking or parties.. you can't bring your pool towels to the beach...
the road is very busy infront of the Plaza, very noisy on the patio outside of you condo if you are on the road side.. It is however the ocean view side.

We stayed for one week and were very impressed. Even though they have just recently opened, the hotel, restaurant and bars were all operating very smoothly. The food in the restaurant was very good and service was great at both the sports bar and the swim-up bar.

There is a full kitchen in each suite and there is a spa on site as well.

Centrally located, this is a great place to stay. Senior Pucks is a fun place to unwind and catch the big games.

If you want a great place to stay and like to do some of your own cooking I highly reccomend Marina Park Plaza as your condo/hotel choice. Senor Pucks (located at Marina Park Plaza) is a great place to eat if wish to dine out but is walking distance to many other restaurants nearby. Also a very nice spa located within the hotel and a convenience store soon to open. Beaches and shopping are very close to the hotel and cabs are cheap, cheap if do not wish to walk. Also great golf course nearby, but go early in morning as is very hot. Overall think this is a wonderful place to stay if do not wish to have all the people around you from an all-inclusive hotel. Love, love Huatulco !! Have been twice now and definitely going back soon. Note: If you like to go to the beaches take your own beachtowels as they do not allow you to take the towels from the hotel.

Spent Xmas at the Marina Park Plaza and it was an excellant holiday. This was our third time to Huatulco but we have always stayed at all inclusive resorts. The condo hotel this time was a great experience.
Marina Park Plaza is a new condo hotel and is very nice. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the pool area is beautiful with a swim up bar and nicely laid out.
The pool are only received about 6 hours of sun during the day because of how the hotel is built. It was a little cool but just filled and remember we were there on Dec 21st which was the shortest day of the year. As the year goes on the resort will receive a greater amount of sun and if you want total sun, go down to Chahue Beach which is only a 5 minute walk away and is very nice. There was lots of lounge chairs at the pool so you did not have to get up early to find a place to sit and relax and get a chair..The have 2 kinds and the more comfortable reclining ones were not abundant. Be nice if they were all the same.
A couple of down falls were the fact that the swim up bar closed way too early at around 5 in the afternoon. This maybe because the hotel just opened and was not filled to capacity. As well we have always stayed at at all inclusive resorts where your drinks are included and at the swim up bar drinks wer 30 pesos or 3 dollars each. This is a little pricy considering you can purchase beer at the supermarket for about .80 cents a can.

With the condo feature you can cook your own meals in your room and is equipped with all you need from a toaster, salt & pepper, blender, coffee maker and all the utensils you need. There is a supermarket only a short 5 minute walk away called the Super-Che which as well has everything you could possibly need. There is also the Senor Pucks Sports Bar and Grill was a great place to eat or stop for a cold beverage and good service if you want to take a break from your own cooking. There are also some very nice restaurants in Santa Cruz or La Crusicita and the hotel staff will help you locate them as they speak very good english.
The condo itself is very nicely layed out and the rooms are very spacious with all the necessities you need to make your holiday enjoyable and if there is something you need the staff go out of their way to assist. Each condo has its own water tank so you are never short of hot water for showering or washing dishes , etc. As well as the water in Huatulco is purified and safe to drink.
Huatulco itself has got some of the nicest beaches and some of the best snorkeling ever. Mcquey and Entegre beaches can be reached by taxi for just 30 pesos or 3 dollars but yes english speaking vendors are very limited though they will go out of their way to assist you. For an excellent snorkling adventure we would recommend taking a taxi to San Augustin Beach and spending the day. The taxi ride is 50 dollars for the round trip but the taxi driver will take you there and wait all day for you till you are ready to go home and is well worth it.
Huatulco has always got beautiful hot weather and is very safe during the day and the evening. Huatulco has it all from relaxing at the pool or beach, snorkelling, site seeing, shopping , walking and enjoying the people or sitting on your condo patio, you can not go wrong with Huatulco and recommend it for a great holiday and staying at Marina Park Plaza.

We were there for two weeks over Christmas and New Years. The pool is really done well with a great swim up bar and the staff are very friendly from the bar staff to the cleaning ladies, to the front counter staff. All questions were answered and requests were looked after in a timely manner. The landscaping is amazing for a newly opened building and the neighboring park is full of flowering shrubs and trees. The birds are plentiful and some of the most beautiful in the world. Chahue Marina is across the street and adds a "sailor" dimension to the development. The only down item is the main drag is in front of the building and detracts from the use of the balconies facing the ocean. For us this condo hotel is a 4 out of 5 and we are returning. The hotel is within walking distance of most shopping, restaurants, and several great free beaches.
