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
We just returned from a 10 day Dreams Huatuloco holiday and we are wanting to make a few points
Food: The food this visit was bettere then our last visit here but there a a few items I would like to bring up. They put up the opening times all restaurants but most day they are at least 20- 45 minutes behind???. There was over 650 persons staying at Dreams but thery are still closing some of the retuaurants with some nights two or three closed. We were very unhappy with the breakfast as most mornings all of the items were cold--there must be a way to keep things warm for you customers. Each meal has a good array of meats that are cooked fresh and they have many smaller servings tjhat do NOT get eaten hardly at all yet evert meal they are there---WHY?
Staff: We have visited 6-7 resorts and have yet to find any staff as friendly and helpful as the Dreams staff
Suntanning--when are they going to find a system that allowas for YOUR customers to have a decwent sleep and NOT have to get up t 5:00 AM to get in line for a decent suntan area. Many mornings ther as a lot of unhappy customers and in a few cases near fights.
The entire Dreams facility has many extra palces that make your stay wonderful-- Coffee Shop-- Many restaurants and some with air conditiiong. They also have wonderful evening entertainment
Local shopping-- we found that this area has become theHuatuloco Playa de Carman whe the shop owners neer leave you alone and ar trying to continually heard you into their shops---it beacme so over powering tjhta we hailed a cab and went back to the hotel
Weather--- it is haed to compali about the lovely hot weather but some days it can be over powering when it is 33-35 Celcius
In closing we had a wonderful time but found the heat to be more then an handle and would have to think sbout if we will retune or not.
We have just returned from a 8 day vacation at Dreams Huatulco. It is our first visit to this area and we have not traveled to Mexico for many years. This resort is located on a beautiful stretch of beach and a perfect relaxing holiday for couples or families. It is quiet so if you are looking for a lively party resort you may want to look elsewhere, however we found it to be Perfect. The staff are amazing and so well trained with the express desire to help make your holiday experience memorable. We enjoyed the Adult Only Pool. The all inclusive resort included 24 hr room service and several theme restaurants. The breakfast served at the buffet was as good as any with a large variety of offerings. The specialty restaurants for dinner were good but not outstanding, however at home we have some of the best restaurants and food selection in the world so perhaps our expectations are high. Our room provided a tropical view but we were able to see the bay and hear the ocean. The beds were very good but the walls are thin. We had a noisy neighbour for 2 nites but I phoned their room and asked if they could please turn down the volume and the obliged. The weather here was amazing. Sunshine every day. No sweater required in the evening (something I usually need) A short taxi ride took us into La Crucecita where we visited the beautiful little church of Our Lady of Guadaloupe. We were dissapointed with the town itself for shopping and found the vendors on the beach at the resort very polite with some lovely handmade offerings.If you are looking for Vanilla buy it at the airport. The prices there are more reasonable then anywhere else.
Our first trip to huatulco was to dreams and it was so good, it got me back to huatulco 4 times in 15 months. My second trip ended up At Las Brisas, which if had been first trip, would have never been back to huatulco. Then I discovered Secrets which can not be faulted except for the chair game. Secrets is adult only and sits in a private bay. It is a gorgeous location and the food, rooms and service can not be faulted. Whether you visit secrets or dreams you will not be disappointed. Dreams is family oriented and has a few resorts next door, plus a small shopping area nearby. The food rivals secrets and the service (hate to say it) exceeds Secrets. Not that Secrets is bad, but at dreams they try harder (and succeed). Secrets win with their location, but dreams wins overall with energy, a more diverse location and a happier aura. But picking either dreams or secrets, you will not be disappointed. I will be back to huatulco, and in all likelihood I will visit both locations and thinking about coming back in December 2019 and spending a week at secrets and then a week at dreams. As I like to tell my fiends I have a secret dreamy location in Mexico to visit. But stay away from las Brisas!!!
This hotel is great for young families. The Explorer Club provides excellent day care facilities and the beech is kid friendly, lots of body surfing with no real risk.
And for old folks like us, few steps, great dining, lovely room, friendly staff.
It was my 50th birthday and a group of 10 of us went. I loved this resort, it’s a smaller resort then what we are use to but it’s so clean and the staff is amazing and if you see a waitress by the pool Amarani she’s absolutely amazing, our favourite waitress ever. The buffet is smaller then what we were use to but it was amazing food. The Ala Carts are all very good but always check because each place was closed once a week to clean throughly. Some of our group had the scoots and stomach pains, we aren’t really sure why but Imodium was used for sure. We did a couple tours with Oscar Tours and he was amazing as well. Huatulco is very affordable and many beautiful places to go. I suggest not going over Lent, friends of ours flew in the night before we flew out and she said that the locals come in for the weekend March 15-19 and they get a much lower rate to pay but they push you out of the way at the buffet and take your pool chairs and are just rude. When we pay top dollar we aren’t there to be treated like that. Unfortunately they will never be back. We missed that so we will be back.
