We just returned from a great 2 week stay at Las Brisas. We flew in on the 12th Dec and left on the 26th. The first week was incredible – the occupancy was really low and it was like having a resort to ourselves. The second week it filled up a lot more and we found ourselves heading to the beach before breaky to find a spot.
Huatulco really blew me away. It is truly stunning! The town of La Crucecita was so much fun to explore – so easy going and hassle free. With luck it will remain the peaceful area that it is now for a long time to come.
Las Brisas is a great resort. I would certainly stay here again. We had three rooms for our group – 2 deluxe and one jr suite. All three were in the Estrella’s section (the deluxe were in the Vega building and the suite was in the Mirach building). The views were great from all three – best from the junior suite as it was high up and overlooked the whole of the bay. The other two had peek-a-boo water views and overlooked the botanical gardens. The rooms were all very large and really clean. The A\C and the ceiling fan worked great. The bed in my room was very comfortable.
We liked the food at the resort and really enjoyed the Buffet – it was varied and tasty. The made to order quesadilla’s and fajitas were a favorite. The Mexican restaurant was very good and had a wonderful atmosphere, but the Solarium didn’t win us over. The steaks were not great (but I didn’t expect AAA Angus…), the fish & shrimp kebabs were fabulous the first visit but overcooked the second. My parents ate at the Kasbah and had great lamb. None of the a la carte’s were really great for the kids. Breakfast and lunch we spent at the open air snack bar by the pool. Late afternoon we’d hit the lunch buffet for great ice cream to enjoy on our way back up to the room.
Christmas Eve was a large outdoor buffet – great fun… 97 tables out on the lawn with entertainment and dancing. Santa and his super friends showed up with big bags of candy for all the kids. Take bug spray if you’ll be sitting on the lawns at night! This was the only night we found ourselves being bitten.
The beaches are amazing – we spent a lot of time at the snorkel beach…saw tons of fish, eels, rays, urchins, etc.
Sports beach had the longest sun so we’d often gravitate there later in the afternoon.
The pool was good too… but we found the music a bit loud at times.
The 5 yr old with us had a ball bug hunting and we came home with pictures of scorpions, bats, baby tarantulas and lizards. We did, incidentally, find a small scorpion in our bathroom at 4am – be sure to turn on the light if you get up to “go”!! The big “Mexico” tourism book in the room was very handy for dealing with the rogue visitor!
We spent three days at Bocana beach body surfing, mud bathing and eating great seafood – awesome beach. The guys had fun fly fishing into the surf. $10 cab ride each way and the drivers were happy to arrange a time for pick up later in the day. Not too many cabs waiting there (some days there were none) so be sure arrange to the pick up.
This resort matched our group perfectly. It is a really beautiful area and a great hotel. Lots of stairs, but easy to navigate once you become accustomed to the lay out of the property.
Huatulco (and Las Brisas) is my new favorite Mexican vacation and I can’t wait to go back!
