Dreams resort

The best place we've been so far. So clean, great food, amazing staff and a calm serene setting. We are definitely planning on returning.

Huatulco is built on a series of bays, divided by bluffs and rocky outcrops. Many different choices for swminning and snorkelling. Most of the beaches have good restaurants. For the price of a couple of drinks, or a little food, they will let you occupy a table with umbrella for hours. Take a boat tour if you can but watch... More

The scenery in the bays is beautiful with cliffs surrounding clear water. In most spots the dropoff is quite steep and water tends to have fair sized waves. The whole area is very clean, restaurants are reasonable and the food is very good. There are an abundance of taxis at 30 pesos anywhere around Crucecita and Santa Cruz. There will... More

The resort was a pure Dream Come true as all your needs were granted from room 24 hour service to a 24 hour coffee and snack facility on the second floor just a few feet from the bar.

Small bay with a beach cafes and shops. A good place to visit not sure if I could spend a week here as only a small beach although not overcrowded when we visited. A nice stop off point.

This is our third year to vacation in Haultuco. We love that this part of Mexico seems not as touristy as other parts. The people here are genuine and want to know more about where we are from. The beaches are beautiful and so are the bays. We love this part of Mexico.

We were on a cruise and just spent a day here and toured most of the bays. This is a nice newer planned city. It is also very eco friendly as that the power is all green based. We spent the day on a catamaran with some swimming. It is a smaller more laid back feel than Cabo, PV or... More

The sunrise is beautiful over the bay. We loved watching the waves, the fishing boats, and a cruise ship. The water isn't too cold, though the waves are quite strong. Love it here.

I would like to call out a couple of waiters that were just incredible. Mayren Cabera in the Lobby bar and Marcial Maya Cruz at the pool. these two kept us entertained and fully hydrated. Thanks
