“Very good for families with small children”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

This was our first time in Huatulco and we loved the place.
The beach is beautiful, excellent for small children and this hotel has all you need in order to have a great vacation.
This is an all-inclusive destination and we chose it because we have 4 small kids and it’s the easiest.
The Children's Club is one of the highlights, my oldest children loved it and the staff is superb.
In general service is very good, hotel is quite big so even when it is somewhat full you shouldn't feel it. There are 7 or 8 swimming pools, very well maintained and delicious to dip into.
Huatulco in general is a great destination and this hotel is well worth it.

Room Tip: The Junior Suites are superb, do insist or pay for a sea view, it makes a great difference.

I was in Huatulco from June 27th thru July 4th with my husband, 2 year old, parents and my sister's family. We really enjoyed our stay at the Dreams Resort.

Was everything perfect? No, but when your on vacation you can't sweat the small things. You need to just relax, enjoy and make the best out of it. Food was good, you had some hits and of course some misses but who cares. Our favorite was the Mexican restaurant and believe it or not the Japanese. Service was a little slow, but again when your on vacation you need to really relax and enjoy and forget about the city for a moment. Huatulco is very slow paced and you just can't compare it to a Cancun. If your intention is to relax then this is the place for you. My only suggestion to the Director of Entertainment or Hotel is to push the performances to 9:00pm. They usually start at 8:30 and unfortunately we missed a lot of the performances because we were still having dinner most of the times. We would start dinner at 7pm but going back to the slow service we wouldn't be out tip 9:30 when the show was over. There after their was not much to do. All entertainment ended by 10pm. Even if they pushed it by 1 hour, I think it would help fill up their theater. Service at the Hotel was fantastic, everyone so warm and welcoming.

One piece of advise is Please TIP the staff. They work very hard to make your stay a pleasant one. Just because it's all inclusive doesn't mean you shouldn't tip. These people work extremely hard. A few dollars go a long way!

Can't wait to be back Huatulco!

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and only left the resort twice. Overall, we had an amazing trip. We were greeted with cucumber drinks when we arrived at the resort and we sat down with Mario to discuss our room. Our room wasn't ready yet and we learned that even though we booked our vacation through Apple Vacations and had reserved the complimentary honeymoon package through them, we weren't staying in the "right" room for the honeymoon package. Mario was still able to have (complimentary) flowers and a bottle of wine delivered to our room. We ended up waiting for just over 4 hours after our arrival at the hotel for our room to be ready. This room was not the room we were supposed to have but they didn't want us to wait any longer. We were supposed to have a partial ocean view room which we did not have. We had a view of a pool and the restaurant Himitsu. We sat through the timeshare presentation in exchange for a discount on the couples massage. The massage retailed at about $200 but cost us $50. The couples massage including a steam room, water massage and either a deep tissue or swedish massage. I got the swedish and my husband got the deep tissue. We were both happy with the massage. All of the room service is free and they stock your refrigerator in your room for free. The employees are all very friendly and helpful. We did the Waterfalls excursion which was fun. It is about a 1.5 hour drive each way to get there but you visit a coffee plantation, a butterfly house ($4 extra) and the waterfalls. It is a lot of walking to and from the waterfalls. The infinity pools at the resort are amazing, everything is very well kept and clean, it was an all around wonderful trip. I would definitely recommend this resort. This is more of a family resort so there were a lot of kids. The resort also provides kayaking, snorkeling and sailing equipment for free on the beach. One last thing, feed the fish at the far end of the resort by the bar and big rocks! You can take bread out from the cafe and they will swim right up to your feet at the beach, especially in the morning. The Iguanas like to be fed bananas out in the same bar area.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are the best but all of the rooms are well kept and amazing.

Wwe were greater with cucumber drinks. Which were fantastic. Most of us (30) people attending got into rooms with on. Half hr. Can complain with a few hrs of being there, we were told we needed to go to a briefing.. They were trying to sell the tours and what not...we ended partaking I the coffee trip ( not worth it) the town tour( was ok, but a $4 taxi ride and yu would walk to town yrself) the boat tour with snorlking was worth every penny. Head we known we would have spent more time on that tour, maybe even doing it a few times. We stopped at a beach restaurant . Seemed like there was two sets of menus. Very xpnsive however locals ordered trays of the most expensive items. Only had one person get sick. He ate th raw oysters. Sick for 3 days. Other than that it was an awesome trip.. So awesome we are planning another trip, this time with our children in march

We were there for 5 days, 4 adults and a 7 year old kid. It has its exclusive beach front and all the amenities you could expect for an all inclusive hotel, excellent rooms with ac, the beach, clean, the service and in general is excellent. The pools are ok but being at the beach who cares, right? The only thing I could warn you from is that they try to sell you this share time and can be annoying in doing so. Go there during low season, not in Semana Santa, and try to avoid also the summer peaks.

Room Tip: Avoid peak and high seasons, it can be overcrowded.

This place is nothing else than expected. What surprises me is that with similar prices to the nearby Secrets, rooms are of lower quality, front desk attention is poorer and overall it feels like an 'old' all inclusive (Barcelo...). We booked two rooms, one for three ppl and the other for two. The three people room was not available (which completely throws away the point of advanced reservations), so we were not offered an acceptable solution and had to pay the upgrade to preferred club (by the way, it isn't worth it); we were not advised that we were losing the in-room jacuzzi and extra space all for an ocean view (ridiculous). Anyway, the up side was the spa and remarkable service from a few waiters.

I stayed in this resort for my brother's wedding. My room was beautiful, had a view of the pools and ocean, even though I didn't pay the extra for this. Room is kept tidy all the time, has hot water, constantly restocked mini fridge and air conditioning as long as your sliding door is shut, as well as TV and wifi. The service of ALL THE STAFF is exceptional. Concierge is helpful, cleaners are friendly, servers are happy to help. Food is great and plentiful - the Mexican restaurant is by far the most delicious! You are never far from a bar or a happy face. There are a few pools, one for adults only which is nice. Plenty of bars close to the pools and the beach, and also people who walk up and down the beach to serve you drinks - please tip them, they work hard for this money! Plenty of clean towels, bottled water everywhere, the cafe has yummy coffee and anything will do anything for you, provided you ask. There is food available 24/7 including delicious room service. It is a bit daunting when you see the price tag but as soon as you stay, you realise it is worth it.

Room Tip: Don't waste money on ocean view rooms, you are barely in your room and my view (non ocean view...
