My wife and I stayed at the Hotel Plaza Delphinus for twelve nights on our honeymoon. The hotel is located a two minute walk from the beach of Chahue, and faces a beautiful park with a gazebo. Beneath the gazebo is the university bookstore, which has books in Spanish and some Spanish/other language dictionaries.
The hotel has a pool, but it wasn't very clean, likely because it was the low season and we were often the only ones at the hotel. But there are two beach clubs on Chahue that have very nice pools you can use. There are three beaches within walking distance (each about fifteen minutes except Chahue), and the area is very quiet.
Downtown is about a fifteen minute walk, and has restaurants, clubs, coffee shops, internet cafes, lavandarías, mescal, a movie theatre, etc.
The best part of the stay at Hotel Plaza Delphinus was the hospitality. It is run by Roberto and Blanca, who went out of there way to make us happy and comfortable. Roberto drove us around in his car to see all the beaches and small towns around, often let us know when he was headed into town and offered us a ride, showed us what he thought were the best restaurants and the most economical. He even picked up some coffee for me and let us borrow a coffee pot, a DVD player and movies for rainy days, and a fridge for our room.
Roberto knows really good English, but he'll speak Spanish with you if you want. He's an amazingly kind and honest person, world traveller, and used to live in Austen, TX. He really made our stay a memorable one, and when we go back to Huatulco, we will stay at the Hotel Plaza Delphinus.
Also, Ángel who works the front desk is super nice and helpful and fun to talk to.
