Secretes or Dreams

Which AI on the beach has the best location.

We would like to be on a beach that's good for swimming & snorkeling. It would be nice to be in walking distance to other places. Bars/Restaurants.

Thanks for your help.

we have stayed at dreams twice and are heading back there again this year. we love it. the location is right across the street from a little strip mall and a couple of great restauraunts. it is only 38 pesos( $3.00) to get into la crucecita or santa cruz by cab and there is plenty of shopping and dining options there. the beach out front of the hotel is longer ( but not like the mayan or dominican by a long stretch) than the beach in front of secrets. both can be rough at times with undertows in some places and there is snorkelling at dreams but i'm not sure about secrets. secrets is very secluded as it is a new area. you should go to the top of this page and look at huatulco hotels and see what other people are saying about secrets. we have been there and it looks lovely but we like the location of dreams better. hope this helps. you are going to love it!!

Also keep in mind that Secrets is adults only, unsure if this will factor in, regarding your choices of hotels.

Having stayed at both we are going back to secrets for the holidays. We prefer dreams beach for longer walks. But secrets for views privacy snorkeling and walking to other secluded beaches. No bars across from dreams 3 restaurants. Either place you stay at to visit bars or more restaurants you need to cab it. Both are excellent choices.

We too have been to both and we both prefer Dreams over Secrets. Not that Secrets is not beautiful because it surely is, but we both felt it was a bit to posh for us and that it IS in the middle of no where and we did feel isolated, especially in the evenings when we wanted to just go for a walk. There is absolutley no where to walk to. Where as Dreams you can go across the street to the small mini plaza or a few restaurants or just walk around the area on the side walks. There was no side walks off the resort by Secrets just the highway. As for the beach we both like the Dreams beach better as well. But having said all that...you can not beat the view at Secrets and every room would have one.
