Travel Blogs from Huatulco
The last day was another brilliant sunny day. We all went down at our usual time for breakfast, then the kids hurried to change to get one last swim in. Checkout was 11:15 and our shuttle arrived at 12:10. Before leaving, checked out Lucia teaching Salsa at the main bar. The guests got a good workout! Checkout was a breeze. We said our goodbye's to …
We really like it here and decided to stay for 2 days to get caught up with everything. Rest, bike maintanence, laundry and relaxation need some attention. Internet service has been on and off so far. We have been updating where we can and will continue where service is available. Thanks everyone for following along with us, it means alot. Chow for now.
... in bright colours. Like most of these small Mexican villages, all the activity is centred around the town square formed by the church on one side and shops on the other three. During our visit to the church, in a private conversation, Omar explained to Annette all about Magic Mushrooms and how this area is known for them. They are sold by 'families', a large one, a smaller one and two very small ones. We can't help but wonder why he felt compelled to explain this to her ...
Another day out 36C. Today' was our big excursion with Tino. Tino picked us up in the lobby, then we drove to Santa Cruz to his boat called "Snook" it was a cute 10 passenger boat that comfortably fit all of us. We started our journey with goin to one of nine bays that surround beautiful huatulco. The first bay was a fishing village. Lots of local eateries crammed ...
... nights. This is our new favorite
beach, great snorkeling, warm water and wonderful people. Its
fantastic! Today being Sunday, alot of local people were out to enjoy

answer questions and converse with them, Kona did his charming thing,

Historical Traveler Reviews Las Brisas Huatulco
Just got back from Las Brisas for a 1 week vacation on January 8, 2005.
We are just back from Christmas at Las Brisas. The reviews on this site were very mixed, some bad and some good, so we left with lower than average expectations, needing only Beach, book, sun, beer, food.
Spent Christmas to New Year's Day in Huatulco at the "Las Brisas". After having read many negative reviews prior to departure, I sought assurances from our tour operator. "We haven't had even one complaint" came back from an inquiry to the hotel staff.
Just returned from Las Brisas in Huatulco, here's the scoop...
We stayed at the Las Brisas last year and were very impressed by it's breathtaking beach and great service. Las Brisas is the perfect hotel if you are looking for an upscale property where you can just relax.
Nice beach & pool but service sucks!!!
Las Brisas Huatulco is far different from our experience with Las Brisas Ixtapa. The Ixtapa's staff are corteous and helpful and the rooms are nicer. Las Brisas Huatulco has a nice pool, beatiful beaches but the service sucks!!! We would request for something but staff would sometimes just ignore us. Food is a little bit expensive but it's not very great. You should know some spanish before going here because they barely speak english. Bring a English-Spanish dictionary!
We were at Las Brisas Huatulco from July 31 to Aug 3th. and we lived one of the most terrible experiences we can imagine, we got there and in first place we saw that the manteinance of the facilities were very poor, the windows didn't open, the furniture were broken, we just had a dirty ground sight, we found Bugs in the room like a Scorpion!! and two Spiders in the bed!! we were with our little daughter 4 yo and you can imagine, but this was not the worse, after this a group of Ortodox Jewish people arrived to the hotel, this wasn't the problem, the main problem was that the managment decided to divide the hotel making private for the jewish group the 3/4 parts of the resort with black canvas looking like a Getho, including 3 of the 4 beaches, one pool, two restaurants, the only Gym, and a lot of walking places, the food was terrible, all our family got sick with vomit and diarrea, I can't belive that someone sane can decide this kind of agreement with one group affecting all the other guests, a terrible Experience!!!
Our room is OK, what we expected. The food is too expensive related to good taste and how much time we need to wait to eat. Service is terrible, we found out that mangement did not hired additional staff for this high season. The result, all guests are not satisfied with service at restaurants, pools and beach area, etc.
Beautiful site. Trying to convert rundown Club Med to upscale resort while preserving cash flow. MUCH more investment needed to justify Las Brisas brand. Okay as middle level resort, but food, etc. expensive for quality. Many rooms need maintenance and staff overburdened. Evidence of construction abounds, but it is not clear that management is committed to necessary improvements in the near term. In our room, aircon didn´t work and staff couldn´t get to it, sliding doors didn´t work. View included dirt construction road, chain link fence and prison-like security light aimed INTO room. Asst manager courteous but not committed to actually addressing problems. We are still at resort waiting to see how our room problems are addressed, but anyone expecting something resembling Las Brisas Acapulco will be very disappointed.
We have been to Huatualco 8x and have stayed all over, if you want breath taking views of Tangola bay then this is the place for you, 3 pools that over look the ocean 3 private beaches,food is great service is wonderfull. The rooms are breath taking,hugh clean and views of the ocean, you can lay in bed and see the ocean, their is a lot of walking but they have cars that run all over this hugh complex. If you want to meet people all over the world and just relax this is the place for you.
