Dreams Huatulco is geared towards romance-seeking couples, who can exchange sweet nothings over grilled lobster at the adults-only oceanfront Oceana restaurant, and children, who are amply entertained at the Explorer’s Club, a fully supervised kid’s club that includes adventures like beach camping. As at most Mexican all-inclusives, the vibe skews young (or at least young at heart), so expect the party to continue on into the night at the many bars and lounges, some of which offer theme nights, music, and other diversions. But decompression is also on the menu: try a water lily after-sun soothing wrap or a vinotherapy massage at the spa.
In the Area
The state of Oaxaca is blessed with natural beauty galore, from lush jungle to mountains to pristine beaches, so be sure to tear yourself away from the resort long enough to experience some of it. The stunning Copalita waterfalls, and the Copalita Eco-Archeological Park, which contains several ruins and temples, are worth a day trip. Get caffeinated at one of the region’s coffee plantations, like La Gloria, which also offers home-cooked meals.
How to Get There
Dreams Hustulco Mexico is anexcellent resort!! Food was fantastic, staff were excellent and we had a wonderful time. Did excursions, absolutely safe and wonderful!! Rooms were kept very clean and anything that you needed they were very accommodating.
The ocean view was gorgeous, but I got all the noise from the entertainment and pool areas below, and it was a lot of noise, day and night. On arrival, the fridge and the safety box both turned out to be broken and needed to be replaced. Wifi connection was lousy, they told me to better try it at the front desk. I got a nice coffee maker, but unfortunately neither a teaspoon, nor any sugar or creamer. Though the hotel advertises 5 restaurants, during my stay normally only one or two of them were open. However, their staff used to be very kind and friendly.
Summary: Boasting to be a luxurious five stars facility, this hotel is far from complying with Dreams Resorts’ standards. I used to receive a lot better service even at some humble three-star hotels. Dreams Resort Huatulco was definitely not worth the money.
My wife and I just returned from another amazing 1 week holiday at Dreams Resort Huatulco. The staff are top notch here, and they truly care about making your trip a great experience.
Staff honorable mentions from this trip include Julio (Portofino),Adriana (Seaside Grill),Prospero, Alberto ( Infinity pool waiter), Julio (beach waiter), Ivan (Lifeguard), Brenda (Parrotta), Migdalia (day maid) Emma (nite turn down service). All these Dreams staff members are the why this place is very successful and why we keep coming back.
The specialty restaurants were all great, and our favorite place for lunch was always the Seaside Grill. Rooms were as good as always, and stayed in Building Two. The drinks were always consistently good, with almost anything available. The entertainment nightly at the main bar was worth going to see as well.
One difference from this trip were the sand-flea bites that many people got while walking on the beach early in the morning..we've never encountered that in 5 previous trips, so bring strong bug spray.
For what we want and enjoy, this place always does it up right, and want you to return here, which we will.
So, if you need a great getaway, Dreams Huatulco is a great choice. You won't be disappointed !!
I have stayed at dreams Puerto Vallarta and Mayan Rivieria before.
Property - grounds well maintained however did not feel luxurious like other dreams resorts I have been to, exterior paint looks dull white. Nice bay to walk along and a small boardwalk when you reach the end, right of the hotel.
Food - the buffet is fairly good, the smaller buffet is open air with basically the same food items and a view vs. main buffet was bigger and air conditioned. A la carte restaurants - Asian 2/5 so not so good. Mexican: 3/5, I expected better being in mexico though the self serve taco appetizer bar was good - ground beef best and shrimp appetizer excellent. Italian 4/5: great self serve antipasto bar and lasagne as a main course, and the seafood restaurant was excellent, try the surf and turf and mahi mahi, the shrimp lettuce wrap and ceviche appetizer we ordered twice same night as they were so good so 5/5. No reservation though the downfall is you may need to wait for a table during peak times.
Room - nicely appointed, modern, ac or ceiling fan, optional outdoor jacuzzi or preferred club upgrade. Mini fridge stocked and refilled daily. Had problems with the remote which they swapped out and missing my do not disturb sign but quickly taken care of.
Staff - friendly and very polite.
Pools - many of them considering smaller sized hotel, several pools with ocean view or tropical view. Some umbrellas to hide from the sun or palapas on the beach. No towel card.
Activities - featured on a digital display or download from website app daily. Wish they would post the whole week so could plan as rotating restaurant closure or daily activities could vary too. Archery was fun, decent sized gym, zumba instruction could use improvement as I was bored and felt uninspired and only 30 minutes.
Bars - several and generous pours including international brands. The main rendezvous bar has live music most nights but only a couple of hours and several patrons would dance to the music.
Disco - popped in once but was not happening, nobody in there and did not go back.
Night Entertainment - open air, good dancers but short duration.
Mosquitoes - I was safe the first night but upon departure bit at least 24 times. The outdoor jetted jacuzzi helped control the itch.
If looking for a relaxing getaway, this place would be appropriate. Keep in mind this is a family resort, many Mexicans and Canadians but also suitable for couples.
Just got back from spending two weeks at the Dreams Resort. We just loved it! We have stayed there numerous times over the years and keep going back. The first time been in 2006. Nothing bad to say about this resort. We always get treated like royalty. The people working there are first class, very friendly, and professional. They all love there jobs and it shows by the service we got. I personally would like to thank each and everyone of the Dreams staff for the wonderful time we had. Many of the staff have become our very good friends over the years. I have to mention Guillenuo Salazar, Edie Martinez, and Isela Martinez of the Dreams. They went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable.
