A Hotel that Goes Out of its Way to Please the Tourists

There were many Canadians back at our favorite Mexican resort. The general manager, Leopoldo, was there to greet us on our arrival. It was nice to see him again. On arrival most of the guests received a plate of fresh fruit, flowers and a new Castillo T-shirt. As usual the maid service at the hotel was excellent. Everything was fine at the Castillo. There seemed to be more Canadians than our last holiday here. No Canadian kids at this resort. They are out at the Tangolunda hotels! The internet is not the best here, but seems to work at its best early in the morning. Staff and management went out of their way to please the tourists. The weather was in the high 80s during the 3 weeks we were there. We really enjoyed the Oaxacan style Mexican food. Service in the diningroom was really good especially when we had Asael, Freddie or Raquel as our waiters. The breakfasts and suppers were really enjoyable. As for lunch, we ate at the Beach Club. There was an abundance of shrimp, guacamole & nachos, soups, chicken, fish, ceviche, salads, desserts, etc. Raymundo and his beach bar staff were ready to serve all kinds of drinks to us at 10:00am!! The staff put on some really nice BBQs at the hotel garden area and the beach club. There was also live music during the Sunday afternoon BBQs at the beach club. The Castillo hotel put on a few very interesting folkloric concerts at their Convention Center. This hotel is very close to the cruise ship marina and the many new restaurants in Santa Cruz. We are hoping to return to the Castillo next January. We have had our fill of Mexican food & music for awhile. More>

In love with Mexico

We went for the first time in Huatulco and loved the big comfortable and very clean room. We had our room on the 4th floor. It was very quiet. We loved the BBQ in the garden, the beach club where the people are working very hard. The washroom at the club beach was very clean. I did not like the washroom in the hotel by the restaurant, they used too much chemicals, my eyes were burning. The food was good and I loved the fish and the Mexican food. The Mexican fiesta for Christmas was amazing, we danced on the beach we had fireworks and saw Chinese lanterns, we mingled with Mexican people they are very nice and warm. I was impressed by the service at the lounge chair on the beach. We saw a Mexican wedding at the Beach club, very interesting cultural event. I did not like the coffee in the morning and I suggest the owner to buy an expresso machine. More>

We enjoyed it, but it's not for everyone.

My boyfriend and I travelled to the Castillo in February 2015 and had a great holiday in the warm Mexican sunshine. This is not a fancy resort by any means, it almost feels like a hostel in Europe, but you get what you pay for (we paid $1050 each all in). The hotel staff were very accommodating (the front desk staff speak little English but they try their best). We emailed them ahead of time and asked for a room with a balcony (street view) and king bed also telling them it was both our birthdays during the stay. We were given a beautiful room with large balcony street view as requested with loungers and a patio set all our own! We could watch passers by in the sleepy street - not noisy at all. We suntanned and had drinks out there in the afternoon/evening. We loved it! The king bed was super cozy and air conditioning worked well. Room was very basic but clean and all you need. You're in Mexico you spend your holiday at the beach! They put rose petals over the bed on our birthdays and valentines - nice touch to come home to after a long day at the beach. Beach club was pretty and the real selling feature of the hotel. Gorgeous pool, large bar and eating area and lots of shades. We got up early each morning, had breakfast at the hotel and either walked or took a taxi to the club. We took the shuttle once or twice but the taxis cost a couple dollars to get to beach so it was worth the spends to take a taxi (they are always outside waiting) and go on our own times. We would have walked everyday but it was just too hot! High quality problem ;) We took other reviewers advice and ordered off the menu at the beach club rather then the buffet. Clubhouses and hamburgers, guacamole with chips. I tried the seafood soup from the buffet and it was tasty. Walking by the buffet at lunch it looked OK - pretty generic and not particularly appealing. We had the menu option though so we didn't care. Beach has soft (burning hot!!) yellow sand and warm water but the current and waves are strong. Too strong for my liking but my boyfriend loved it. After I got tossed around one day I retired the beach swimming and stuck to the pool. Which is large with plenty of chairs and excellent food and drink service by the waiters. Food was pretty bad at dinner (sorry). We ate out 6 of 7 nights (each night we walked through the buffet and it did not look fresh or appetizing at all). We liked going out each night - the town was super safe and we tried lots of different restaurants and bars. If this isn't in your budget though, you will be really disappointed. There is no entertainment or bar per say at the hotel. Just a small lobby bar and if your a non smoker you won't stick around. Breakfast was good. We had made to order omelettes each morning and fresh fruit with raspberry yoghurt. Huatulco is a beautiful place and we are happy to have had the opportunity to check it out. If it weren't for the food I would rate the hotel higher because the resort and its staff do their best with what services and amenities are available to them. More>

Absolutely loved this place!

We stayed here last Feb. and hoping to get back again this year. What a wonderful, laid back, beautiful place to visit. and oh.. so... hot.. :) The staff were fantastic. This hotel is not a 5* all inclusive, but it is just what we loved, .. to blend in with the locals and practice our Spanish. We jumped in a cab and took a short ride for snorkeling at the two bays Entegra and Maguey. We swam at the public beach and also Chahue (the hotel has a open air bus running ev 20 mins or so. Lots of restaurants in the little town which is safe and walkable for dinner or just for a stroll. Just the most relaxing trip we have had for some time. Loved it. More>

just what the doctor ordered:)

The hotel was very clean and friendly staff that always try to help you whenever possible. As much as Huatulco maybe not be as developed as some of the bigger tourist areas in Mexico however the locals are more than accomidating and if you happen to venture out to try beach front resturants with late night walk along the beach you will not be disapointed . Make sure to stop by the sol de mar resturant as service was always exceleant as was the food. More>
