Great staff and food ! Second time there and more to come

Dreams Huatulco was amazing. The hotel staff was very nice and willing to help. Food was, food, nothing special but yet enjoyable. Only down side is the ocean is always at red flag.

Chose the Dreams resort in Huatulco after having stayed at a Secrets resort in Puerto Vallarta. Nice hotel on a nice stretch of beach. Traveled with my wife and two 16 year old girls, and we had no problem letting them roam anywhere by themselves as security and safety of the place seemed top notch. Off-season (June) so wasn't too busy. Very few smokers due to that as well, which was nice! Food was good overall, could have used a little more variety at times, but the staff was fantastic to say the least. World Cup soccer party with the Mexico/Germany match on every television was quite a blast. Nightly entertainment was fun and just a good thing to participate in. Lots of activities during the day if you felt like joining in the fun. Booked a snorkeling/fishing/sightseeing tour of the bays with one of the local vendors on the beach, and couldn't be more impressed. Traveled the short taxi ride into town and found it to be one of the cleanest most hospitable places I've visited in Mexico, and I have visited quite a few. Cost a whopping 46 pesos (two bucks) for the cab ride. I recommend trying the local Mezcal...delicious. I would return here given the chance, the vibe was good, the people nice, and hey I'm in Mexico and on vacation.

Great beach. The hotel was good, close to town. Great waiter service by the adult pool especially by waiter Maite, always attentive. Great pools, always clean, but no jacuzzie. This hotel is more oriented for families with kids, but we still had a great time. We definitely will come back again.

The staff was very nice from the front desk to housekeeping! Great bartenders too ! Our room had a great view of the beach, pools, & patio area. The ceiling fan in our room was a big help.

The staff was very nice, hotel very clean, but the hotel feels old. The AC in the premium rooms we got never work well, it never stopped! We had to get up at night to turn it off, because it never goes off once it reaches the set temperature. But the worst is the food. This is an all inclusive hotel, but the food was pretty bad. In the breakfast to little choices, no salmon, or berries. Mostly eggs and basic stuff. Lunch food was average the only exception were the grilled steaks, which were pretty good. But on the second day my wife and I got sick from something at lunch, could have been the beef soup ot who knows what. Next days we tried to stick to fruits and vegetables. The a la carte restaurants, the Italian and the Mexican were very good, but sumarizing the food in the buffets was awful. Nothing compared to RIU Hotels or many others.

Only stood here for one night but ended up staying a full two days. Everything you need is at the resort. The beach is ok but the pools are amazing. Had a graet time and will be returning again!

Everything about hotel was AMAZING...staff, rooms, food, drinks, location.

hotel was great from the time we check in until checked out. Only thing is all of the restaurants are not open everyday so you need to plan a little more before dinner.

The Hotel was really good for the price. I found most of the restaurants to be really good, though the western buffett was not that great. The rooms are fairly nice and the mini bar has a few beers in it. The all inclusive is good for drinks and they have most of the premium brands you likely drink but they are hidden away and you have to ask for them. One gripe is that their mixers are not cold so ice melts almost instantly in the heat.

We stayed at the Huatulco Dreams Hotel the week of June 1. We were a little concerned since this was the rainy season and Hurricane Barbara just went through this area. The weather called for rain everyday. And it did rain every day, but at night. We actually had very good weather. Sun everyday!. It was rather amazing, as we sat at the pool looking at the ocean the skies were sunny. If you went to the room and looked back at the mountains it was always dark and cloudy. The people at the resort are super nice always going out of there way to help. I thought the food selection was less that other resorts we have visited, but what they had tasted much better than most places. Even being in the low season chairs by the main pools under the shaded areas were hard to come by. The rooms were clean, large and serviced twice daily. It was also one of the most picturesque places I have stayed at. Not just the resort, but also the surrounding bays. Especially with the mountains in the backdrop. Overall, a great place to stay!!

I give compliments to the staff. Everyone we encountered were great. It was a relaxing vacation. I wish we could utilize the beach more, but due to high tides, they had to seal of the beach 50% of the time.

My wife and I stayed for a week this last April and we weren't quite sure what to expect. The pictures were beautiful and the reviews were what put us over the top and made us book our stay. Since there were no direct flights from Los Angeles to Huatulco, we had to have a conecting flight. But since we were on vacation it was no biggie... Once we finally got to the resort, we fell in love with everything. The staff treated us like family and really made us feel welcomed when we were told "Welcome Home". Over all the resort was wonderful and the beach was beautiful. But due to rough waves and jellyfish we weren't able to go in the water for the first few days... but when we were able to it was great. The room was amazing, we had a "tropical" view but with the position of our room we had a partial occean view which have the balcony one of our favorite places throughout the days and nights. The restaurants were all amazing quality, with the exception of the buffet, only because it was a buffet... If you got there early the food was good but the later it got the quality went down with it. We had an amazing stay and the staff really made it better. Housekeeping was twice a day, plus the nightly turn down service. We would recomend the resort to anyone we know. We would absolutely love to return, but who knows when that will be. A small side note we left on a saturday, and we were glad we did, because the resort was so packed from the previous days arrivals. The breakfast buffet was so packed that there was a long wait and a second restaurant was opened. But had to be clsed to prepare for lunch. So make sure you plan your stay in the middle of the week to avoid the weekend rushes.

When we first arrived we were greeted with a ng, cool, refreshing cucumber drink. The service was outstanding from the maid service, to the restaurant employees, to the employees serving drinks around the pool. The seven pools was amazing. Unfortunately, we were given the wrong room, however, they did give us a discount at the spa which worked out very well for us. The food was good at the restaurants. It is a great place for families and friends to get together.

Likes - Huatulco area is very clean - Weather is very constant (we had no rain the week of sept 1-7) - Lots of different pools - Lots of activities to participate in if you wanted to - Staff is wonderful, very sweet people (you treat them with respect they treat you with respect) - premium rooms worth if if you take advantage of the free spa stuff or if you get a good deal (most rooms have at least a partial ocean view) Dislikes - VERY minimal food choices during the weekdays. (we were also there for Christmas 2012 and found alot more choices with all of the buffets and restaurants open) - bed was terrible

The hotel is one of the best places I ever been, the food is delicious, the service wonderfull, the personnel is very kind and the location of the hotel is magnificent. I,m shure than in my next vacation I,m going to find a Dreams hotel it really was a very very nice vacation

The resort is beautiful, staff not so friendly. Staff not so accomodating. They only have two types of beer, for those that do not drink Corona's you will if you stay at this resort. They should have more beer options. Wi-fi should be complimentary not $10 a day. Room service should not have limitations. Cleaning staff should provide clean towels if dirty ones on the floor and should provide extra face wash clothes.

I think this is a good hotel for families, but if you travel with your couple or by yourself I do not recommend it. The Spa is really good. Check in and check out a nightmare, since the hotel is very busy all the time.
