First I would like to say that I take personal offense to Sven from Waterloo insulting Canadians that choose to travel with Sunwing. Sven you need to educate yourself on the difference between gringos and canucks. Gringo = Americans and Canucks = Canadians.
Breakfast at the VB is excellent. The only difference from last year is that there is no smoothy blender. Otherwise it is exactly the same and has not gone down hill as Sven implied. In fact if you don't see anything on the buffet that you like you can order off menu without any problem at all. The food is always fresh and very good.
We just returned from 2 weeks at the VB and we didn't see anyone being overly loud or having parties at the pool as Sven implied. Except for the locals who came on the weekends to stay at the VB. They had a blast at the pool and yes maybe they did have their little parties in the evening. But after all they are entitled like every other guest at the VB to have fun. Everyone that we met were very considerate and polite and were not noisy or rowdy.
Everyone is entitled to have a good holiday no matter what price they paid for it. The VB is an lovely inexpensive hotel who offers you the best of Huatulco. VB has the best staff who do go out of their way for you and this is why Canadians keep coming back. They are all very lovely people.
I'm sure Sven stays as long as he does at the VB because it is a very affordable hotel to do so.
The music at the VB is very tasteful and mostly Mexican. The entertainment at night is also really good. They are a really good variety of performers who come and play. I have never heard any loud hard rock or soft rock music being played at any time of the day or night.
We met many locals who came on the weekends to stay at the hotel. They were very lovely people who we enjoyed watching have fun with there families. Also we met many other guest from many place who also were very lovely people. Some of which we will remain friends with. But that is what makes the VB so special, you meet so many different people from all over. You don't get this at the 5 star all inclusive resorts.
VB offers water aerobics and yoga a couple times a week. Yoga is usually at 8:00am and water aerobics are at 5:00pm. I think this is a really nice touch and the guest seem to really enjoy a little bit of exercise.
Ourselves as well as other guest from what I could see did spend their money at the VB and at various other places around the area. We saw many guest as well as ourselves eat at the restaurant at lunch and dinner. They have a great menu and the food is very delicious. I highly recommend the Mango Banana Boat, very yummy. The group of 12 that we were with left very generous tips and that is because the staff deserve them.
I'm certain that Sven didn't eat everyone of his meals at the VB otherwise he would have missed all the wonderful cuisine Huatulco has to offer. There are some very good places to eat in Huatulco, one being Elsa's hamburger stand just outside of the VB.
The VB is an exceptional hotel with some of the best staff that we have ever experienced in Mexico. This hotel has the most amazing Manager, Hugo who goes out of his way to make sure you have a wonderful stay. His staff is very helpful, polite, and welcomes you with a smile everyday. They all should be very proud of the job they do, because they do it very well. We will miss them all dearly until I return next year.
Thank you once again VB for the wonderful experience we have had at your hotel. We will look forward to seeing you all next year.
I would like to end in saying that I think it isn't a good idea to charge people for the use of fridges in rooms like Sven suggests. I think every room should have a fridge simply because some people do travel with meds or supplements that need refrigeration. Some guest might like to refresh with a cold drink in their room at night or they might have a diet that requires them to shop at Super Che.
I don't think these reviews were made to judge or call people names just because we can't get what we want.
