Just returned from a week at the Castillo Huatulco and have to say we enjoyed this vacation a lot more than we do the large resort ones. The Castillo is on a busy street just beside the marina in Santa Cruz and this was what we liked. In spite of intense heat we were able to step out of the hotel and walk easily into La Crucecita, the beach club, or just wander through the neighborhoods. The resorts are lovely but too isolated for us. The Castillo is small hotel with a beach club a few blocks away at Bahia Chahue. It is basic but meets ones needs with comfortable, clean, air conditioned rooms, excellent food in the dining room and ample drinks in the lounge. The hotel does not offer a la carte meals, but the food is always good on the buffet. Service was always courteous and friendly. The staff speaks varying amounts of English, but we never had trouble being understood, and took the opportunity to practise and learn some Spanish. I can't think of one complaint about this nice little hotel. It's not the place to go if you want the opulent resort experience, but if you're getting tired of that and want to experience a little more of authentic Mexico then this hotel fits the bill.
