We stumbled upon this hotel with no reservations. We got a suite with full kitchen for 700 pesos a night. Quite a value. The views are gorgeous and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

The restaurant is Superb, try the Enchiladas suizas. The restaurant staff was very attentive to our needs.

They can help you book a day trip on a yacht or catamaran which I highly recommend.

The room key has a key card to insert to operate the electricity in your room and a regular key for your door. My suggestion is to leave the key card in slot inside the room. Turn off the lights and leave the fan on, it gets very hot during the day, the a/c and fan only work with the electricity is on.

Room Tip: My room was away from the tower and I really enjoyed it.

We've stayed at the Mayev twice, once in 2008 and most recently in November 2012. The first time was the charm for our return -- only 12 rooms with a beautiful view from the floor to ceiling windows and the balcony of our room overlooking the pool. Between our two visits there had been expansion -- intelligently done. More rooms were added on the city side of the property; two had there own small pools and kitchen facilities. An pleasant open air restaurant and bar were added. We ate there for breakfast some mornings, but in the evenings found that our preference was to order room service (at NO additional cost) and dine on the balcony overlooking the pool and bay. Central location -- it's s short walk to the harbor, breakwater, and beach. If you're a nature lover, there's bird watching from the balcony, since the hillside across the street is forested and undeveloped. And snorkling within 3 miles. The pool is a delight; clean, and even when there are lots of rooms occupied, there is no feeling of crowding near the pool. Liked that there were Mexican families enjoying the pleasures of travel! The staff is wonderful; clearly proud of their hotel, they take time to show each potential guest several rooms at differing prices, bilingually. The rooms are comfortable, neat and clean with efficient and friendly maid service. We'll certainly be back on our next trip and look forward to seeing the friendly staff again. [For those who might wish to avoid gringos, both times we stayed, there were no other native English speakers in the hotel. Great to use what you've learned in all those Spanish classes!]

Room Tip: For the best view of the bay, choose the third floor rooms in the original. Though it's immediate to the highway through town, there is virtually no night noise.

We spent our Thanksgiving week in Huatulco for the 5th time and I just wanted to say how much we enjoy the Princess Mayev. Clean rooms, great little pool that is never crowded, friendly and helpful staff, and the best view from a balcony that you could ask for! The hotel has expanded in the past year with a few more rooms (that overlook La Crucecita) and a bar/restaurant with an awesome view of Chahue Bay. The owner of this property, Ricardo, is onsite everyday and always available to help if you need anything. The wi-fi this year was nice to have since we brought our laptop. The small refrigerator is very nice to have in the room as well. They now have satelite tv with way too many channels!! We don't watch tv much when in huatulco but it is a nice feature for some people I am sure. Again I can't say enough about the central location. Proximity to Santa Cruz, LaCrucecita, Chahue Bay is perfect. Can hardly wait for next year! Thank you Ricardo & Staff!

Room Tip: 3rd floor has higher ceilings.

Nice place with a view of it's own pool and a small part of the Pacific. There were times when many childern were in the pool and I had not seen one person go use the restroom. I asked the "manager" how often they checked for cleanleness and put chemicals in the pool and the answer was once a month. Yowser.

Room Tip: I did a second floor room so the view was good and away from the busy times at the pool. I was able to sleep with my veranda doors wide open.

The Princess Mayev Hotel was our home for 2 weeks in Feb. 2011. The hotel is located on top of a hill and as such, had great views on either side of our room. On one side we could watch the sun set over the beach at Chahue and on the other side we could see more of the town core as it got ready for the nightlife. Our room was well appointed, clean and very spacious with its own balcony. The restaurant provided us with our breakfasts and a few dinners, however, we found ourselves walking into the town centre most nights for dinner. The swimming pool (infinity) is absolutely gorgeous and we spent many hours enjoying it. The staff are seriously hospitable and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting beautiful Huatulco!

Room Tip: Top floor has the greatest views naturally. Noise was never an issue during our stay.
