Front desk: not very efficient Rooms: good size, comfortable but in great need of sun blocking curtains. Cafeteria: don't get the breakfast plan, it's a small crowded place. Have a coffee right outside (it's the best), and have breakfast next corner, at "Terracota" (mmmmhhhhh) Location: right on the center of La Crucecita, the second downtown in Huatulco. Pool: small, cold, not really appealing...plus their loungers are decrepit and falling apart.
My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights as we explored Huatulco. It is not on the beach, rather it is in the center right next to the little park/plaza. This is a hotel that doesn't see a lot of foreign tourists, but I was just fine here. The beds are very comfortable, much softer than the normal rock-hard beds in Mexican hotels. A few of the tiles in the bathroom ceiling were a little beat up, so the hotel shows a little age, but everything is clean so it's no big deal. There is no bottled water in the room, which is strange, but there is an OXXO (convenience store, like 7-11) less than a block away, so we just bought our own. We paid the equivalent of $25US per night. At the front desk, they quoted a rate of about $40 per night, but they honor the rates you find on the Internet, so be sure to look around online a bit before you stop in.
I arrived to this hotel for a one night stay and was ok. It is and old building and it shows which can make it nice colonial style but needs some updating, specially the bath rooms. Employees were friendly but not very efficient in doing their job. It is located in downtown Huatulco not very close to the beach but great if you want to know the place for an affordable price, there are shops, bars and restaurants at a walking distance. Over all it is ok to stay there just don't expect the facilities of a big resort, it is more for alternative traveling.
I've stayed here on surf trips to Barra de la Cruz, which is pretty now ruined these days. Thanks Rip Curl. The hotel is one of the better places to stay unless you keep traveling to one of the all inclusive resorts. It's in a great location - cool town square. There is nothing fancy to this place, but the beds were rock hard. The hardest beds I've ever stayed in. Regardless, I'd consider staying again. Place was clean and staff friendly. The food at the restaurant was really good. Got Monty's revenge from one of the other restaurants in town so be careful what you eat.
My wife already left a review so I won't repeat it. Obvious the hotel is not maintaining the rooms. In addition to what ChairMtnGranny posted, there is also tile missing. Front desk person was very non-responsive. It took about 15-20 minutes for her to check us in. She had to call someone and then enter info into her computer and wouldn't share with us why it was taking so long - fortunately we were the only ones trying to check in. After being there a few days it was apparent that the hotel is primarily used by folks from Mexico, and that hotel was not set up to handle English speaking. Since we were planning to leave very early each morning, I sent email to hotel before reserving, asking (in Spanish) when they started serving breakfast each morning so we knew whether to sign up for this option - but I never got a reply.
I will start by saying that Crucecita, in Bahias de Huatulco has been an amazing experience, and everything and everybody (except for this hotel) has been very helpful and friendly. I recommend to come to Huatulco, just stay away from this hotel/restaurant. Fortunately we stayed in another hotel, which was very good. The problem was that we decided to have dinner in "casa de las tlayudas", which is the restaurant of hotel flamboyant. When it was time to pay, I put my credit card in the payment tray as usual. The waitress asked to see my ID, which I had no problem with. To my surprise, she ran away with my ID. As expected she came back saying that they needed me to come to the payment terminal, because my card works by digital signature/PIN. I went to punch my PIN. I was about to take my ID, supposing that they had verified its validity, but the lady at the reception took the ID away from me and hid it (which is a federal crime in Mexico). I punched my digital signature and the payment went through. I asked for my ID back. The lady ignored me, and started to copy every single piece of information in my ID on a paper (which does does not make me feel comfortable even now). I asked for my ID again, and she said that I had to sign the voucher before. I pointed that the signature was not needed because the payment was digitally signed, and that even the voucher had no space for signature. She did not give me my ID and told me that her boss asked her to do all those things. In my view, this is too much for a 7 dollar bill. After scribbling something away I finally got my ID back. So my suggestion is: visit Huatulco, is an incredible place, but stay away from hotel flamboyant and the restaurant "casa de las tlayudas" if you wish to avoid an unpleasant experience.
We had a great time even do the weather was a little rough. And the personal was there went needed from the Manager Jorje to the handy person great Tayudas and the local people in town had great food. we would do it again only for the local experiences.
I would give this place four stars, but the beds are horrible. After surfing one of the best in the world - I won't say the name, instead I'll let Rip Curl screw it up for everyone by bringing the world tour to one of the best right point breaks in Mexico, perhaps the world. So the secret is out, I guess. After a long surf session and hard paddle fighting the current, I'll I want to do is sleep, but the rock hard beds in this place are ridiculous. C'mon, really! Which purchasing agent had the bright idea to sit on a bed and say, "Yeah,this will work. It's not like a comfortable bed is really that important for a hotel, right?" I don't understand it. Everything else about this place is good; the food, the decor, the service, the location. Las Crusasitas is cool little town and there are few tourists. Although now that the secret is out - did I thank Rip Curl for that yet? - I'm sure there are more and more surfers to over-crowd a point break that can only really handle about ten surfers at a time, but ohhh those barrels and super long rides... Also, this is not a place to hang out for long. The pool is nothing spectacular. It's not a destination. Overall, the place is clean and it's a safe place to stay. Maybe by now they've changed out the beds.
I stayed here for two weeks, one week was for a convention and the rest of the time I relaxed. The hotel is opposite the town square and all the rooms had balconies, though only to stand on. Breakfast was a bit confusing to me as there were different menus and also a buffet, but the woman who ran the dining area was sympathetic to my breafast needs, which were not like the locals, who ate very large meals which I would regard as dinners. I was really looked after in there and they gave me American breakfasts every day, which cost about £3 per go, and were also quite large. The rooms were very comfortable, the air conditioning was quiet and efficient, the TV and all its channels worked well, and daily the bathroom articles were replaced; also two bottles of water were left for me every day. I took a small trip for three days and wanted to return to the hotel at midnight. They made sure someone was waiting to receive me, and they had looked after my bags and computer, which were taken to my room again on my arrival. I would certainl;y stay here again and would reccommend the hotel to anyone coming here who wants an authentic Mexican hotel in a non-resort-looking area. Five stars to this place!
This is a moderate Mexican hotel. Rooms were clean and beds good, and the room had a small balcony. Could only stand on it, no room for a chair. Great location at La Crucecita, and within walking distance of everything in the main city centre, and some of the Bahias. Would go back again.. Buffet breakfast is typical Mexicana, and good value. Reception staff quite friendly, especally Daisy
