Like the other reviews have said, lots of stairs and very run down. When we arrived, the ground floor patio door didn’t lock. They got it fixed the next day so nothing serious. There is no in room safe. We also had the room with the kitchenette, but disappointed to find it came with only a few plates and some random cutlery. We had to purchase everything from spatulas and cutting boards and knives, dish soap, tea towels, etc. the steps down to the pool are a bit sketchy, there are two that wobble, so going down with a cool can be dangerous if your not careful. The steps down to beach are a bit overgrown, so going down with a cooler is a bit of a squeeze at a few points. The stairs are a bit of a chore, but we just told ourselves “we needed the exercise”. The beach is very nice, and mostly quiet, but we did have some tour boats pull up a couple days an unload tourists for a few hours. We snorkelled around the cove to the next beech, but judging from all the tp in the bushes behind the beach that beach is just used as a bathroom stop for tour boats so suggest sticking to the beach area in front of fandango. Overall the view is awesome, location is great, and very quiet, except for the noise down at the cruise port ( which can really carry) We would stay here again, though not in the kitchenette. With having to buy everything, would have been cheaper to eat out for the few meals we ended up cooking.

When we arrived, the hotel wanted to charge us a rate much higher than what we reserved in, so we didn’t stay there.

The taxis get there fast all the time and quite environment. One good thing is that we decided to visit Oaxaca, bc of hurricane, and Ciros connected us to the hotel there and we did not had to pay extra. We had a very nice view from our window but i didn't get the room I paid for maybe bc of the hurricane, no one explained. Too many stairs to walk to the office and to the room. bathroom not flushing and instead of someone going to check they told me to open up the key from the bottom lol. no one walked us to our room they told us "go straight and left" so we could not find the room. I had to walk the stairs again to let them know we were lost. They did not gave us any towels we had to ask all the time. the beds are hard and uncomfortable. TV had only one channel and no internet at all. I think it looks too nice on the webpage. it's too expensive for what they offer.

It my not be for everyone as this site is on a hill and away from the core of things. Its an older place but has some charm to it. Some places have a fridge and stove which are nice and the view from the hill is amazing but the stairs may not be for everyone. The mosquitos can get bad. The pool is nice and the beaches are many in the area. Can rent bikes in town and there are some great places to eat in town a walk down a big hill which takes about 40 minutes plus there is a big mall with everything to fill a fridge. Its a wonderful area its just kind of older. So don't expect plush modern day american all you can eat sort of place. If you don't mind some stair climbs and and an older place. The pool is nice at night after hiking/biking. Don't drink the water!

Absolutely incredible View of Santa Cruz and Marina. Breathtaking. Id go back! Warning: you must be a fit active person or open to excercise.... to walk up and down the stairs to the private beach. (Pool is closer to rooms. Its nice.) (No service or umbrellas on beach.) I enjoy the exercise! This place has character and charm. Not safe for lazy or small children. Like everywhere in Mexico you must watch where you are stepping. Some of the railings are high...hill is very steep down... needs work , and some cracks need filled...but the ceiling fan works ! air conditioning works! the shower was hot! Cold drinks at front...Quiet dead end side street with cab every where... it's a family-run business...never stole a thing... anything we needed, just ask and they take care of. Not a place for high maintenance people. Some bugs...some stains...but clean bed...and clean towels. Close to amazing local el Torino tacos and fresh fruit juice....behind the Pamex gas station. I got fresh cheap fruit and avocados from local market in LA crucecita and I cut it up in my room every morning. Went out for dinner, many excellent restaurants in Huatulco. I recommend Westpark Cafe for breakfast and lunch. Just asked a local with good English they will tell you the best restaurants or make friends with an expat they know the lay of the land. Not strict on masks unless the cruise ships come in in Santa Cruz. Oxygen is essential for Respiratory health after all. God bless.
