Dream Beach Wedding
kmac2017, British Columbia, Canada
Wed Jan 18 17:09:57 EST 2017
We loved everything about this resort, and it's the perfect location for a beach wedding. We started planning ours in early fall of 2016, pretty last minute. Luis Pino went above and beyond what we expected, and did more than what was required of him. We wanted our ceremony to be as private as possible, so we had it past the rocks on the right of the beach. It was a long walk, but totally worth it! We didn't have an audience of strangers, just our loved ones. Luis made this decision happen the DAY OF the wedding...we literally asked if we could, and he made it happen. Right away he was on the radio with his team getting things in order. We had our reception at the Sugar Reef. It was also perfect. They had lights hanging from the roof, our own private bar, dance floor and it's a beautiful place for pictures. We brought brass candlesticks from home to decorate the table but this was personal preference. The waiters catered to our every need, including my dad who has allergies to seafood and nuts. They made sure his meals were prepared separately but still served the same time as all the other guests. Also, if you want amazing pictures of your special day, book Miguel Luna Gainza. He is the best of the best! Our pictures are absolutely stunning!! We wouldn't change a thing about our wedding day. Everything was done for us, right down to the last detail. These people work so hard to please their guests and they deserve more than just a thank you! Thank you so much Luis Pino, and everyone at Secrets Huatulco!! John&Kimberley

Secrets Huatulco is well worth it!

We were very impressed with this resort. It is truly a 5 star experience. The resort itself, grounds, pool, restaurants and beach, all top notch. The a la carte specialty restaurants especially personified a fine dining gourmet experience. The staff throughout the resort were all very friendly and committed to our every need! Special mention goes out to Feliciano at the Mexican restaurant, Alma and Enrique at Castaways were fantastic and the manager Roberto was front and centre with the guests and staff making sure everything ran smoothly and we wanted for nothing. Salvador at the Barefoot Grill was so sweet and efficient, always a big smile. We spent a lot of time on the beach and the most amazing young service staff person was Mardeli, who remembered our name, our drinks and was the most happy and hard working person I have ever met. She even had our drinks ready for when we got out of the ocean and we had not even ordered them yet! Very impressive. And everyone hustled, the service around the pools and on the beach was awesome. Francisco was a busy man at activities, including leading aqua-fitness classes and MCg the evening entertainment. He was very animated and passionate and professional and fun. Here are a couple of tips that we learned along the way, which you may or may not have read in other reviews- -Bottles of water are often not available around the pool or on the beach until 11am or noon, so bring a bottle from your room first thing. Later you can request a bottle of water and cup of ice from the beach wait staff. -You do not need water shoes to swim in the ocean here, beautiful sandy bottom, no rocks whatsoever, clear clean and warm water! However the sand on the beach gets very hot around 11-3:30pm, you should bring something to wear on your feet when walking on the beach to protect your feet. -great swimming, a little rough sometimes, but we went in even when it was red flagged, but we were careful. If you walk around the cove to the left, there is a more sheltered area with calmer water if you prefer. -there is coffee 'to go' set up at the Barefoot Grill around 6 - 6:30 am and outside the buffet. But don't forget Coco Cafe, just off the lobby, open 24/7 - all kinds of coffee, tea and bakery type snacks. -speaking of coffee - although not in any menu in any restaurant, if you want espresso or cappuccino just ask for it, even in the buffet. The Mexican restaurant did a wonderfully impressive display of making Spanish coffee at our table, pouring firey liquid and all - again not on the menu, just ask. -unlimited use of beach towels, which were plentiful and you don't have to do any silly signing them in and out. -alacarte restaurants do not require reservations and you may visit them as often as you like during your stay. We usually went for dinner around 7:30-8:00pm and always immediately had a table. -tipping is common here, and should be done - staff make minimal wages and rely on tips. There is an ABM machine just off the lobby and the front desk can exchange large bills for smaller denominations of pesos for tipping. Pesos and $1 US bills were most commonly used for tipping. They can also exchange Canadian or US for pesos at the front desk, just bring your passport. -we used room service for breakfast twice. Food came within 20 or 30 minutes. Big thermos of hot coffee, easily 3 cups for both of us. You don't have to stay strictly to the menu either. One day all we wanted was coffee and two toasted bagels with cream cheese - no problem. - I liked that improvements were occurring in areas I had read in other reviews that were an issue - one evening, we saw a whole supply of new lounge chairs arrive for around one of the pools. About 7:30pm each evening for about 4 nights in a row, an area of the beach was cordoned off, work lights set up and a whole bank of new palapa structures were being installed for more shade options on the beach, worked a few hours each night, we never heard any disturbing noises - it was done by the time we left - nice. - there is plenty of shade to be found around the pools and lots of chairs. Plenty of umbrellas - if you found the perfect spot but not enough shade? Just ask and an umbrella will likely be found and set up for you. I noticed that the swim-up room patios each had two lounge chairs and two chairs/little table. Also, there was an umbrella outside each patio for shade - plus wait service too! -one fellow told me that he went fishing on one of the boats/guides you can hire for a fee and his catch was brought to the concierge who arranged for the Oceana restaurant to cook it for their dinner that night. They cooked it exactly how he asked them to and it was served at the appointed time that evening. Cool. -we took a taxi to the airport when returning rather than take the Sunwing bus. We were able to stay an hour later which gave us time to have lunch. Taxi cost 300.00 pesos, which is about $15, not including tip. Also, we arrived at the airport 2 hrs and 10 minutes before the flight was scheduled to leave (instead of 3 hours and 10 minutes before the flight if we took Sunwing bus) so we missed the lineups to check our bags, too! Also, spending one hour less at the airport and longer at the resort was great. The weather in Huatulco the week of January 10-17, 2017 was sunny and 31c or 32c every single day. Reliably warm weather, little chance of rain is a big reason to come here - we don't need to spend a day or two in our room because of rain or cold weather - our vacation is too precious to put up with that. Huatulco guarantees us northerners the weather we crave. A beautiful corner of the world, I hope to come back some day.

What a great place! Love this resort!

First time visiting this Hotel and we were happy with the great service by the pool, restaurants and our room. Rooms -Were cleaned everyday. Daily we had clean towels and fridge restocked . We even had turndown service without requesting it. Entertainment - Was great entertainment by the pool Valdamir, Dulce,Adal and Francisco are so attentive to all guests.Server by the pool Jose Luis was always ensuring we had a drink and very polite. Nightly entertainment was great but I notice a lot of guests at dinner during 930pm Restaurants- No need to make reservations for dinner.We showed up and we were seated immediately. Food at all the restaurants were great and need to visit them all. Grounds- All facilities around hotel were clean and well maintained. Overall we enjoyed our stay and thank you for your great service.

Excellent resort and an amazing area of Mexico

I vacation a lot, and this resort was one of the best I've visited in years. It's not so big that it's crazy, there isn't a bad view in the joint (and other than the rooms with a swim up pool lane in the front at pool level, think all the rooms are effectively the same!). I've also been everywhere in Mexico, and Huatulco is awesome, safe and beautiful. The weather too is better than the Atlantic side, because it's far further south, and warmer. Anyway, to the resort: Everything overlooks the bay (bahia), and the food is better than average - and the attentive staff a pleasure... Ill give you some pro's/con's/observations, and you can do what you want with them: Pro's: A la carte restauraunts that you don't need to book! It's awesome! Just walk in, and be served! (Caveat - if you want Teppanyakki you need to book - cuz the space is limited). Great facilities for a resort, and lots of activities, some of which aren't lame! Clean grounds, clean rooms, attentive and friendly staff. Way more pro's than con's, just a great joint. Con's: You've heard it before... chairs are in seriously short commodity, and if you are a all day lounge dweller type, you'd better take this competition seriously. It was really the biggest negative. The toilet/commode is not very private! You'll certainly need to tell your roomie that you're about the hit the loo - to keep awkwardness down. This might be a North American hangup... the glass was strategically frosted though! No screens on the patio door (no keeping them open at night), and the privacy on the balconies is ok, but not great. Observations: If you like less observable beach, find the path that takes you to the bay to the left (looking out) of the hotel... total amazing paradise. The bay to the right is also awesome, but a bigger walk. You won't see anyone... it's amazing! Castaways and Oceans were my favourite places to eat... away from the throngs too! Mariachi band tends to overstay it's welcome in Tamarido restaurant... fun and great, but little invasive after a while. Water was cool and refreshing, not Carribean warm - you can stay in for hours, but it does cool you off - standard Pacific temps. Don't try to walk to town, it took us 2.5 hours, and a cab is about 70 pesos ($4). Save your feet. But do visit town! If you like booze, don't buy it at duty free - but it in town... so inexpensive it's mind-boggling (I'm Canadian). Basically the resort and the town and the beach is great. Just go, relax, and don't stress about getting that perfect lounge.
