This was our first try at staying at a villa, and from our experience we would do it again. We had two other couples with us. If you are looking to get away from the noise and crowds at the resorts this is definitely the way to go. Azomalli is a very clean and well kept villa. The pool was like a bathtub by mid-afternoon. The staff is absolutely wonderful. They work hard and are always happy to assist you. Our meals were perfect and the view was spectacular. We saw whales and dolphins right out in front of the villa on several occasions. The sunrises and sunsets were some of the most beautiful we have ever seen. Every day was sunny and warm/hot (one of the reasons we keep coming back to Huatulco). The people are friendly and easy going. It’s a small town feeling. We only ate in town twice, as Chelly was sooo good at preparing our meals we did not want to miss any. The only thing we would do different is book a car rental for the full two weeks as we feel comfortable driving ourselves in this area of Mexico. The golfing was wonderful. Get out and enjoy the many beaches and tour the small towns close by. The beach access is not a 45 second walk and not directly below the villa. You have to walk down the street to the corner and turn left, then keep your eyes open for very steep steps to your right. You walk straight up and then back down the other side. There are no steps the last 20 feet to the beach and this is difficult, especially if you are carrying a beach bag or towels as you will need your hands to balance. We had a senior couple with us and they were not able to climb/walk this. You have to go back the same way unless you can talk/bribe a staff member at the condominium complex (that is actually blocking any easy access to this beach) into walking you out through the condo complex. In my opinion this beach is not accessible to seniors or young children and carrying anything but a towel or a backpack would not be advisable. We are beach people, like to swim in the ocean and snorkel so this was a problem for us. Check with Tony as to check in and check out times, as this was a minor issue the day we were leaving. Other than the check out time and the beach access everything else was wonderful.
