We spent 8 nights from March 8-12 at the Hotel Villa Blanca. Our flight did not arrive in Huatulco until 7:00 but by 8:00 we were at the hotel. Had booked a junior suite and emailed the hotel ahead of time requesting a refrigerator and two double beds, as we were traveling with our college-aged son. Upon check-in we were told that there were no refrigerators available until the next day and gave us the keys to our room. Very spacious room with a table and four chairs and sitting area with a sofa, coffee table and two chairs and a TV. Bedroom was lofted, up some wooden stairs. We only had one king-sized bed so we went back to the front desk and they gave us keys to another room next door which was the same except with two double beds in the loft area. There also was a separate bedroom with a king-size bed! Very surprised. There were two air-conditioning units, one in the loft and the other in our bedroom, which more than adequately cooled the entire unit. There were no dressers but there were two closet areas with suitcase stands and hangars. There also was a type of ledge in the living area and bedroom on which to put things. A coffeemaker was also in the room although we never used it. There was a pretty good sized safe, also. The bathroom had a separate sink area (with a hair dryer); there was no tub, shower only, but it was pretty big and had a built-in tiled bench. Water pressure was good and always had hot water. We also always had three bottles of water in the room. As previous people have mentioned, the lighting is not that great as there are only lamps, no overhead lights but it wasn't a problem. We did have a light burn out over the sink but it was fixed the next day. And they did bring us the refrigerator as promised the following day. The Super Che grocery store is around the corner so we would buy soda and beer and keep it in the fridge. The balcony is small, mostly for standing on, but my son would bring a chair out onto it. The hotel has a computer in the lobby (you can use for free) and free Wi-Fi in the lobby. Sometimes we would get it in the room; sometimes not. They are adding onto the hotel so there is construction going on but never really noticed it as most of the work is done manually. I never noticed a musty smell or bugs as a previous reviewer mentioned.
We also received a free breakfast buffet which was very good. Several juices, fresh fruit, cereal, pancakes and Belgium waffles, some kind of scrambled eggs, chilaquiles and several other Mexican hot dishes which would change daily. They would bring you toast if you asked for it. You could also have a smoothie custom-made for you. Really liked the breakfast.
Pool area was appropriately sized for the hotel. We only stayed by the pool one day but, unlike other resorts we've stayed at, you could take your pick of chairs. Water was warm. Most people venture out during the day. We went to a different beach every day by cab which we probably never would have done had we stayed at a resort on the beach. The closest beach, Playa Chahue, has two beach clubs, one free and the other that you have to pay (30 pesos/person) to use their chairs and palapas. Both have pools and restaurants.
The towns of Santa Cruz and La Crucecita are a short and cheap (20 peso) cab ride away. Food was good and reasonable. Mostly locals and mostly Spanish spoken. We really enjoyed this vacation -- weather was great, people very friendly, good food, awesome beaches and we really liked the intimacy of the Villa Blanca. We are already looking to see when is the next time we can return and I would definitely stay at the Villa Blanca.
