Great staff
Feb 22 2017
The staff at hotel Castillo were great! They go out of their way to help in any way they can. We were a little disappointed that they had very little area outside to eat for breakfast and dinner. We had to sit inside all the time, which is not what we expect on a warm vacation. The beach pool and restaurant are perfect though. It is too bad they weren't open longer hours. When you have to go back to the hotel by 5:30 there aren't really any cool places to hang out. We always left for the evening because of this. We are glad we did though. There are so many neat and good places to eat all within walking distance or a very quick and cheap taxi ride. I enjoyed the hotel because it was the first time to Huatulco. It more or less made you go and explore the area. The area is so clean, with great food, absolutely perfect weather, etc.

Average Hotel, Great Beach

All staff were courteous. Hotel was clean but very basic and dated. Beach club was amazing. Beautiful. For the price we paid this was worth it.

Real Mexico

This is an authentic Mexican hotel. We were the only Americans there but were received well. No frills here. Sometimes the language barrier got int the way. Bloody Mary made with pineapple juice and vodka, but you just had to laugh. The room was nice, we even had wifi in the room. Good airconditioning. Food was just OK- breakfast buffet food was not warm. We chose the breakfast only option and found out that did not mean we could have the buffet. Only eggs and coffee were offered. 60 pesos extra to have the buffet buffet option which was the only way to get fruit. No coffee makers in the room. We know the area so we ate out for most meals. Beach club is lovely and the food off the menu there is good. Would stay there again. Good value for the price.

Our Favourite Hotel!

We look forward to our 9th visit to the Hotel Castillo Huatulco in January 2019, when we will stay for a month. As you can tell with many other reviews, the staff, many of whom have been there for a number of years, are truly outstanding both in their service, kindness and overall welcoming attitudes. Keep in mind, when tipping the staff – they are unable to change coins either CAD or USD at the banks. The hotel is well run and the rooms clean. The food is good Mexican fare and the breakfasts can be made to order in the restaurant The Beach club is unrivalled, with lunch and snacks available all afternoon. In addition, there is food/drinks service if you prefer to sit under a Palapa right on the beach. Walking the beach from one end to the other is a delight. The ocean, however, can be quite rough, with big waves, so not the best for children, however, the pool at the restaurant is perfect for all ages. A special Beach Club highlight is the evening buffet dinner and dancing, where it seems almost everyone participates on the dance floor! We always meet new friends, both Mexican and N. Americans and look forward to our yearly visit during the depths of our Canadian winter!

right in town, nice to talk to locals, felt pretty safe!

staff very friendly and helpful! food good - liked the feeling of being really in another because its not only foreigner tourists here! i remember rachel, she was just a sweet and caring person. also young ricardo , eduardo and so on. nice location and off course a sports bar for my husband, because he is a avid soccer fan. beautiful gardens, the only thing i missed was a balcony! but it was a good week to remember!

4 stay best of all.

This was my fourth time at this quaint beautiful hotel dont let the size fool you 134 rooms and they are building another 40 more. I have been to many 5 stars mega resorts and none treated me as good as the Castillo Beach resort. Big is not better. You get more attention here get to know the staff and other travelers. They were so quite with the construction i never hear a sound. The hotel may be rated a 2.5 star but don't think that's a bad thing . The beds are comfortable rooms spotless, honest ,caring ,amazing staff. Luis Sanchez the front desk manager also Ricardo a server in the resteraunt made my birthday so amazing . The room maid always put flowers on my bed did the towels in nice shapes. The hotel on my birthday put roses and dasiys in my room . Then a few days later I was surprised by chocolate covered strawberries in my room. I loved talking to everyone making friends. It's a hotel with local mexicans from near and far real authentic Mexican food. You can also get some North America food. At hotel there is one bar serving good name brand alcohol fresh juices in the drinks no cut backs. They have free WiFi safes in room. They have a band that comes in and they do quite down no party all night so you can rest. They have a shuttle service takes you evey half hour to the beach club great pool hammocks play ground buffet style restaurant bar. washrooms etc Life guard on duty on beach.

Excellent food and cizy rooms with fresh flowers and amazing garden. Beach club is one of the best i have visited and ala cart food is fresh and tasty. Staff courteous and very well trained. As a solo tourist i felt very safe and welcomed. If you are looking for real Mexican feel look no further.

Great Local Hotel with Beach Club

Great local hotel with good food, friendly staff & a nice beach club with a pool & playgrounds for the kids and hammocks for the adults. The beach at the beach club is very rough though so use caution.
