Multi-generataional Stay in Huatulco

We are planning a spring break trip to Huatulco with ages 1 to 65+ years old. The Villa Escondida looked like a good option for all nine of us...however it seems as though it might be a little too remote based on some of the discussion here. Could anyone comment on if there are other options that might accommodate this amount of people, but are a bit closer to grocery stores, shops, etc? We'd ideally like to be as close to the beach as possible. Thank you!

Haven't stayed there, but stopped for lunch last February and spent the day roaming the beaches. A beautiful location and accommodations, but you are right - it is remote from anything else - think it's about 70 pesos to La Crucecita/Santa Cruz area, which is where all the shops/restaurants etc are. I think the little town of Playa Bocana is under 100 people for sure, so once you are bored of paradise (which sometimes happens when every day is clear blue skies and 90+F), plan on multiple cabs to go into town or other points of interest.

If you are set on beach front, something like Camino Real Zaashila might interest you - nice beach, huge long pool for kids etc, or right in town the Villa Blanca Huatulco is an inexpensive hotel within walking distance to beaches and town - both well reviewed on this site. No matter where you end up, make sure you get out and explore the bays and town - too many things to list!

To get within walking distance to stores etc. and be close to a beach the Villa Blanca is an excellent suggestion. You could get adjoining rooms or at least side by each.

Another option would be a couple of condo rentals at Sueno del Mar. Now Chahue is not the safest beach for swimming but both Sueno and Villa Blanca are a short walk to Playa Santa Cruz.

You could also check out renting a house but the proximity to shopping may not be as good unless you rent in Sector M or H.

How many are "this many people"? You've only described two.. a one year old and a +65. Do you want to all be in the same unit or would several hotel rooms or condos work?

Idaho, there are 9 "all nine of us". Bit of a challenge for the proximity they would like but doable.

Idaho doesn't seem to read the post completely but I understand that the family can find exactly what they're looking for if they just keep searching. Villa Sol y Mar would be a great choice even though it is not right on the beach. There are many choices if you just keep looking.

Good luck in your search.

I agree about Villa Sol y Mar- I believe they are normally adults only during peak season but it would be worth reaching out to them. With a group of 9, you would be using maybe 3 or 4 suites/ rooms and there is also a common area which you will not get at a hotel or resort. (so much nicer than piling into someone's room or hanging out in some hotel lobby) I've stayed there with my sisters and nieces, and we all just loved having the common pool area/ outdoor living room and kitchen to share. We also enjoyed meeting and spending time with the other guests. Although not directly on the beach, taxis were literally 2 minutes away, inexpensive, and there are several really nice beaches very close by. The views are just stunning. The pictures here on this site don't really do the place justice.

You're right, Pete & Boyd.. I didn't read it thoroughly. Yes, there are lots of options... Villa Sol y Mar is a good one, as would a couple of two bedroom condos (adjacent?) at the Marina Park condos (near the beach and walking distance to most everything.)

Villa Escondiida is only a couple miles fron town, guessing 5. It is not remote. In the states you would drive this far to get gas or go to Target.

There are places closer to town, but do not be worried about it being "remote". It is a very unique, beautiful place to stay. Can't imagine your group would be disappointed.

Thank you for the input! Villa Sol y Mar and others look like great options as well... We'll continue to do some searching. We'd probably need 3-4 rooms (6 adults, 1 toddler, 2 children).
