Our first trip to the Bahia's of Huatulco and overall we loved the area. Over the last few years we've always been able to find really good deals for a one week stay in some amazing all-inclusive properties along the Pacific coast, so when Air Canada Vacations offered up this property on a flash sale we jumped on it! The hotel is fairly new and well maintained, and is located a short 15 minute cab ride ($30 pesos) from town, or a 20 minute walk to the beach club. Expect some traffic noise as the property is located inland on a fairly busy road in an isolated wooded area connecting two much more developed bay areas. Food and beverages are OK, with less variety than you'll find in a comparable Cuban all-inclusive.
Unfortunately, for the first time after 25 years of travelling down south, my wife (and I by default) lost two days to Montezuma's Revenge :( - and so did at least three other Canadian travelers we were aware of!!! Our rep told us not to drink the water (which we never do) and that the hotel uses purified/bottled water to prepare all the food and beverages in the hotel. We feel that some local water may have been used in the frozen drinks served at the beach club - so BEWARE or drink bottled beverages to be sure.
There are WAY nicer properties in the area, and we will definitely return to the area, if we can grab a deal! You get the rugged and mostly unspoiled beauty of the coast with a relatively "safe" town experience if you want it.
