We returned again to the Flor de Maria, and as before Joanne and Paul, the hotel's long time owners and their staff of helpful and accommodating folks made our three week stay feel like visiting family without those tensions. Paul's recommendation of a hotel in Mexico City made the stopover on route and returning to the States a pleasant mini-stay. We flew into Huatulco, where they'd arranged for a taxi to pick us up like visiting celebrities. There was our name on a card with a smiling driver making the drive to Puerto a smooth transition. We checked in, got our smiling hugs, and we were sitting at the roof-top bar sipping a cold drink as the sun set dropped into the Pacific. As usual, Joanne's restaurant selections were terrific, and it's easy to see why visitors from other hotels flock to Flor de Maria for their meals. That's how we found the hotel many years ago. People recommended Joanne's cuisine and we wandered around the hotel corridors, saw the lovely architectural details, the roof-top pool, bar, hammocks and decided to change accommodations. As always when one has had a delightful vacation experience at a favorite place, one may feel reluctant to post a review praising such a hideaway on TripAdvisor for fear that when its time to reserve space for the next visit, you'll find no room at the inn! But, if that's the case, we'll simply smile, plan for several dinners with Joanne and Paul and be happy for their success. You cannot go wrong staying at this hotel in Puerto.
