This sophisticated, Mediterranean-meets-Moorish-style resort is the supermodel of Huatulco, exuding an air of effortless beauty as she looks down from her clifftop setting overlooking lovely Tangolunda Bay, one of nine bays that make up the town. The 28-room hotel, with its distinctive white domes and open-plan lounging areas, is all about decadent living, featuring jacuzzis in each guest room, Arabian Nights-style décor and the Sky Lounge, set at the highest point of the hotel between the mountains and the sea. There are also two pools and a tennis court, for jetsetters who can tear themselves away from cocktails in their clifftop cabana.
In the Area
Much like its southeastern cousin Cancun, Huatulco was targeted for development in the 1980s by the Mexican government as a future tourist destination, but that hasn’t diminished the charms of this community of nine bays on Oaxaca’s ruggedly beautiful Pacific coast. Sample some of the region’s famous cuisine at Terracotta, a restaurant inside the Mision de los Arcos hotel known for its delicious renditions of traditional dishes like tortilla soup and Veracruz-style fish. In the afternoon, tour the bays by boat with Huatulco Water Sports. If golf’s your bag, the Tangolunda Golf Course comes highly recommended.
How to Get There
This place has an amazing view. Was end of June when we visited. Staff was friendly and suggested places to visit. Food was really well made. Coffee was great. Walk to pool is great for kids with so much fauna. Easy five minutes to the plaza. Will be back.
highly recommend the stay here. very relaxing atmosphere, very little noise, just you, your other half and the tranquility of Huatulcos best. the dining is amazing. the pools in the rooms are convenient, the ocean bay is quiet and friendly. i would stay here again.
This property is stunning! Upon arrival you are driven up a steep hill to a magnificent view of the jungle and the ocean. The architecture is beautiful and white with colorful art. We were staying in a 3 bedroom villa that was spacious and well laid out. It was fully loaded with a full-sized kitchen (stocked with all tools/serve wear), laundry room with full-sized washer/dryer, 3 large bedrooms all with attached bathroom, additional bathroom off the living room. Each room had a tv and a/c. The master suites showers are indoor/outdoor which is kind of cool at first, but sometimes you would find some critters hanging out in there which is unsettling. Each room has it's own small balcony and the main balcony had 4 lounge chairs and a splash pool.
We happened to be there in early/mid June which is rainy season and apparently bug season too. This was my biggest complaint about the property. There were bugs EVERYWHERE! We even killed two scorpions, luckily we are originally from Arizona and know how to deal with them. Each night there were large beetles slamming into the glass doors and just bugs all over in general. The cleaning staff always made sure to clean them up, but with each new night came a new army.
The food is just ok, the pool bar food seemed to be the best, but also took the longest. We also partook in some of the resorts activities such as: massages on the beach, jet skiing and fishing, all were wonderful. The staff was amazingly friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Would we go back? Yes, just not in rainy season.
