“Quaint and peaceful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2011

Better half and I stayed at the Castillo last half of Feb. for 2 weeks. This was our 3rd time and not a lot changes, good service, friendly staff, good food, beautiful beach club and most of all clean, clean, clean. The bar on the main floor seems to be the place to meet and greet as we meet some wonderful people from Manitoba (they just cracked us up). The only downside to the bar is they do close around 11:00 pm. The rooms are slightly outdated, wonky tv reception all in Spanish and hard beds but after all day out you'll sleep very well. The location is perfect as you can walk into La Crucecita or over to the beach club, or just stay in Santa Cruz and stroll around. The hotel has a med. size pool as does the beach club but we never spent much time in either. Most of our time was spent in the Pacific. The red warning flag is up most of the time so you have to be careful if your not a strong swimmer. I cannot say enough about the staff at the beach club and the hotel, everyone from Coco, Tello, Wilbert and Aseal they were all great, anytime I needed something they were there. It is disappointing that all staff work so hard and get paid so little, they do appreciate all tips and some people should be a little more generous. This has to be one of the safest destinations that we have ever been too, never have we ever had any kind of trouble. Will we go back again, You Betcha, see ya next year

Time from plane landing til we got to our Hotel was 2.5 hours.
Distance from airport to Hotel- approx 30 minutes
Distance from hotel to La Crucecita - 5-10 minute cab ride- 20 pesos
Hotel is within Santa Cruz

Room -Second Floor-236 with a Balcony which faced the street. Cleaned every day with fresh towels, a TV, shower only but always hot water/amazing pressure, blow dryer, working A/C, king size bed ( I took a memory foam; however next time will buy a comforter from Super Che instead) There is no coffee machine or mini fridge.

* Whether ordering a drink or at the buffet, Staff will ask for your room number.

Food- Authentic
Breakfast 7- 11
Lunch at the Beach Club starts at 1pm
Dinner/Supper- 7pm
* Do know free of charge you can order off the menu ( Clubhouse was delicious)

Internet- On upper level there are two computers; however a wireless connection can be located in the lobby. ( Front desk has access code)

Beach Towels located at Hotel front desk.

Beach- is located on Chahue Bay- 10- 15 minute walk or there are shuttles from 9am - 5:30pm ( every 30 minutes or so )
On the beach- the chairs/lounges are not the most comfortable we purchased inflatable single beach mattresses for our day at La Entrega, then used then on the lounges.
One of the many perks: staff serve drinks on the beach!

The ocean has a bit if a drop off and waves can get a bit high with a undertow.

Nightly shows- Although there are no nightly shows, several of the nights there would be people singing.

We liked the quaintness of the Hotel and every evening walking around Santa Cruz.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This trip:
we spent the day at La Entrega where hubby rented a jet ski, then snorkelled.

We stopped in at Hemingway's Cantina, ate at both La Crema Bar and Prairie Dog Bistro, had moca's at the Gazebo in Santa Cruz and Ice cream across from La Crema Bar ( reviews in appropriated areas)

For future references we checked out " Hotel Villas Coral" ( older but appeared in our price range) and "Luz de Luna Villas and Resort" ( tons of stairs, beautiful but expensive). Both are within walking distance to the beach called Playa Arrocito

This was our third time to Huatulco and we will be back :)

This traditional-style hotel sits right on the main drag of Santa Cruz, close to the main marina with its many hotels, restaurants, banks and fishing boats. The hotel is small and unpretentious, compared to the huge all-inclusive resorts at nearby Tagolunda, but it has all the amenities that one needs. For people over 45 who have a travel companion, it is great. If you are young and traveling solo, chances are you're unlikely to hook up with kindred spirits here. There are no organized activities nor entertainment here, at all. However, many visitors chatted in the Lobby Bar area, making new acquaintances. The service is friendly and prompt, but don't expect many to speak English, so brush up on Spanish or carry a dictionary. The desk staff often asked another worker to translate to English. The place is very clean. I saw a young man, perhaps 13 or 14, who mopped the floors all day long; my husband and I tipped him twice to show our appreciation. Our room 231 was small and lovely, with 2 double beds which were firm but comfortable; however, the pillows were stiff so you may want to bring a small one with you. The room faced the pool, away from street noise. Air conditioning worked well. The lobby bar is small, has pool table, large TV and wi-fi. Freddy is the young bartender who makes the best margaritas. We like how their alcohol is capped as this keeps everything clean. Our drinks were made with quality brands, El Jimador and Smirnoff, and many beer brands were available. Things we liked: cleanliness, quietness, comfy lobby, great drinks, quick service, free Internet computer if you don't bring your own, beautiful beach club at Playa Chahue, lovely hotel pool, breakfast fruit always in perfect condition, omelets cooked to order, delicious coffee, fresh seafood, fresh room flowers and NO WORRIES ABOUT THEFT. I have never read a single complaint about theft at the Castillo, which is notable. Things to work on: fixing things which did not work (like changing sink with crack which water leaked through), rotating foods more, serving some dishes with less spice for those not used to it, softer pillows. We always found something tasty at mealtime, but choice was limited due to smaller setup. Not much to complain about, as the location is great for exploring town and taxi rates are cheap and posted. We actually felt guilty about the low fares so we would tip extra. A tip about touring: we did not buy any packaged tours, as you can buy a boat trip at the marina, and you can catch an A/C bus to Puerto Escondido for $40 pesos (under $4) on the SUR bus, at the La Crucecita Bus Terminal. It stops along the way, for Puerto Angel, Zipolite beach, etc, so they are cheaper stops. We both felt that this trip to Mexico seemed more authentic than when we stayed in large luxury resorts, and that we actually had a foreign experience. We plan to return to Huatulco and stay longer next time, perhaps here or a smaller hotel in La Crucecita town.

We flew Sunwing out of Calgary on Jan 18th and spent our one week vacation at the Castillo. It was our 2nd time to the area, previously staying at the Crown Pacific. Flights both ways were uneventful except for a bit of a delay leaving Huatulco. Arriving we went through customs, luggage pick up, immigration, and then onto the bus getting us to the hotel in time for dinner. Check in was speedy, and I was happy to find that we had been assigned a king bed and balcony room as promised by email.

The Castillo is located on a busy street front, quite close to the road. The traffic noise starts to be noticeable about 6:30m and relents by 11:00 pm. This means that any music in the lobby and lobby bar areas is overwhelmed by traffic noise and the TV volume is turned up (maybe?) much higher than it normally would be. It was not a relaxing area to sit and visit so we found that we did not spend much time there. The restaurant, (breakfast and dinner), is glassed in, overlooks the pool area, and is air-conditioned. There is a small but well kept pool and garden area with pong-pong table. 2 free use PC’s are on the second floor. Wireless access on the main floor only. You pick up/return your beach towels at the desk and sign a paper saying you will pay 200 pesos for each one not returned. The beach shuttle runs every 30 mins, but it is just a short walk if once you know the way.

The rooms are basic and a bit shabby in places, but the fact that they are kept spotless makes up for any flaws. The king bed was very firm, pillows flat, but lots of them, and the air conditioning kept the room cool. The TV receives many channels but we only found 3 to ever have English programs. The balcony was huge with a table, umbrella, chairs, a lounger, and nice plantings. However, the proximity to the busy road made it unpleasant to sit outside for any length of time. There was always hot water, but the bathroom did show the most wear and tear. There were very loose water taps and black mold stains on the ceiling. Toiletries and a hair dryer are provided. I was expecting to hear a lot of hall noises, (what with thin doors and tile floors), and maybe it was a combination of low occupancy and the courtesy of our neighbours, but it was amazing quiet in the rooms overnight. At around 6:30 am, the traffic noise would begin, and would remain steady all day. Housekeeping was in every day and water was left, 2 bottles per day. There were some special touches throughout the week, like flowers, flower petals on the bed, small towel animals, a fruit plate, and a small gift bag. The room safes are the small key-pad style and out notebook computer would fit if we stood it on the side.

You eat breakfast and dinner in the hotel restaurant. Buffet , very little “American” styled food, mostly Mexican dishes. There are limited fruit and veg options and lots of spicy sauces to add yourself. If you go with a pre-conceived notion that a buffet should be large and offer endless and varied options, you will be disappointed. But for us, there was always plenty we wanted to try to, even though some days the meals were better than others. Lunch is at the beach club under an open-air palapa with a stunning view of Chahue Bay and provides the same types of limited dishes but with fries, hotdogs/hamburgers. You can order a club sandwich or nachos (from your server) which are not on the buffet if you don’t find anything you want. This ordering option also appears to be available if you are lunching at the hotel. All you have to do is ask, it seems. (One day I asked if the green sauce was guacamole, and it wasn’t, so they brought me a side dish from the kitchen.) Each time you sit down, they ask you for your room number because of the different room/meal plans they offer. The water at the hotel is not drinkable, so use the bottled for your brushing. I was wondering if this was the cause of my intermittent, yet daily, tummy issues. I had been eating everything, including fresh fruit/veg so there may have been contaminants from washing/preparation that remained on these uncooked items. (Too bad it took me all week to figure that out!) At the bars, beer is in bottles and soda in cans and they were making quite a few mixed drinks as well. The liquor is not top shelf, but it is there for an additional fee.

The pool area was small, but a nice size for the number of people we saw using it. It is tucked in to a nicely kept garden area between the hotel and a landscaped (dirt) wall where on the opposite side they are building a “tourist corridor” which was explained to me as eventually being like 5th Ave in Playa del Carmen with shops and restaurants. (It appears it will extend all the way to La Crucecita, coming out just before the canal near the playing fields. It has a long way to go before being completed. The beach club is gorgeous, and we spent most afternoons there carefully swimming in the waves and enjoying the sun. There are palapas on the sand, and some on the sides near the pool area. There is a beach volleyball court, a covered sand soccer “field”, a newer-type playground, a trampoline and a hammock palapa. It is all quite nice. The only problem with being in the back is the kitchen smells seemed to hang around if the wind was not blowing the right way. You will see non-Castillo patrons at the beach club. I think one lady said it cost 30 pesos (refreshments extra) for her to come and spend the day. There is drink service on the beach, and unlike other places we have been, you can eat at your lounger as well.

The location of the Castillo makes it within walking distance to both Santa Cruz and La Crucecita, but really, nothing is very far or expensive to get to by taxi. The set fares are located on a board in the lobby so you know what you’ll have to pay. Each day we tried to get to a different beach to snorkel before heading to the beach club for a late lunch, and we had different experiences at each. Conejos is a beautiful setting, but with the construction of the new hotel, noisy. The beach just through the scrub at the back of Conejos is beautiful and, except for a few local fishermen deserted, but no shade will be found there among dunes and rocks. La Entegra has great snorkelling if you get there before the boats start arriving. We had a nice snack at one of the seaside restaurants there courtesy of our server, Jonathon. There were jellyfish at Arrocito the day were there which was too bad. We went into town two evenings and one morning and it was interesting to see the difference between the times. Evenings, the place is full of young people and families socializing and enjoying the coolness of the night, and the morning, you had the place to yourself with many of the shops unopened. In the morning, the busiest place was in the food area of the market. There it was packed with people having breakfast. The church is quite spectacular with the morning light shining in to illuminate the huge ceiling mural of the Virgin Mary.

Santa Cruz, where the cruise ships arrive, has some souvenir shopping and restaurants, but generally we found that heading in there any further than the coffee shop in the gazebo was not relaxing. There is a gauntlet of taxis, tour sellers and restaurateurs who all try to get your attention about what they are selling. Although all very friendly, it does become tiresome. We did happen to walk the beach there on Sunday and it was a beehive of activity with boats and people enjoying the day.

We went on two tours, one with Hurricane Divers and another with Marcos Lopez, a private guide. I’ll report on each of those in the regular forum. Overall, we found the Hualtulco area to be just as charming and pleasant as our first visit and we regret only having one week to try to enjoy it all. The Castillo is a charming hotel made even more so by the people who work there and the type of tourist it attracts. It gets high marks for cleanliness, service, location and food, butit is too bad it is so close to the road and more development.

Hubby and I travelled to Huatulco for the 4th time and this year we stayed at Castillo. It's the location that makes this hotel...never thought we would like staying in Santa Cruz and we were quite delighted ...so central to everything and lots to do in the evening. I'll break the rest of this review into categories

Rooms: basic, old but very clean. Beds are rocks...typical, but oh my aching back after 22 nights on that bed. We started out on the second floor in a poolview room with.2 double beds, right above the lobby...it was awful, so noisy. We changed our rooms the next day to further down the hall and facing the street--loved it! A king bed and a great deck that we used often. There are no fridges or coffee makers in the rooms. Water daily. The hall noise can get bad as you hear every door closing and every footstep...I slept with earplugs and was fine.

Food: I have read other reviews and maybe things have changed....breakfast was the best meal and then downhill....and we are not that picky. As a salad lover and seafood hater there were nights I wondered what I could eat....when they have seafood it's seafood all the way, as a main course, in the rice, in the salads....
Salad was generally shredded lettuce....nothing else and I often took the garnishes just to get a bit of tomato or pepper. Fresh friut could only be found at breakfast.
Lunches at the beach club were a challenge....from the buffet that is. I don't ever consider hot dogs as a food source and when paired with chicken nuggets I felt like I was in a school cafeteria.... I did learn that I could order off the all inclusive menu --a secret they don't want you to know, and that is how we got a decent lunch but it was like pulling teeth every time we asked for the menu. There is a problem with food temperature at the buffet.....be careful....hot food is not kept hot and cold dishes are left out without ice to cool them....Great staff though..
We did have a few decent suppers...but beware when vacancy is low.

Beach club: Lovely!! Wish they served breakfast there, what a view......

Staff: wonderful!

Location....as I said before it is perfect.

Pools: nice, we loved the hotel pool because it was quiet....no nasty music, no bingo, no people....especially early afternoon, we were ofter the only ones there.

Hotel has 2 computers for use and that was nice. Lobby bar was great but sometimes the bartender could not be found....great place to get a nice cold water.....lobby was great to just hang out and chat with other guests.

Would we go again..yes, we really liked the hotel but think we would go the breakfast only option and find our own supper and lunch.

The manager, Gabriella, was wonderful and very helpful...any issues were quickly resolved.

overall we loved our stay at Castillo. Looking forward to our next adventure in Huatulco...

We're a little late posting this review - doing so while making plans to return to this hotel in a few weeks.... After much research, my husband and I travelled to Huatulco for the first time March 18 - April 1, 2010. We stayed at Las Brisas our 1st week (reviewed separately) and the Hotel Castillo the 2nd.

As a 2-3 star, Hotel Castillo more than met our expectations...

Property - nothing stands out as remarkable, it's obviously been around awhile but seems to be clean and well maintained. This is good, clean, basic accomodation that provides a comfortable stay at a reasonable cost.

Weather - very warm and humid consistently low-30's with zero rain, clouds far and few between. We got used to it - no complaints! Be prepared with the sunscreen or maybe even a block - the rays are very intense compared to other MX destinations.

Beaches - the Hotel beach club is on Chahue Bay, an easy 10 minute walk (with shuttles every 30 minutes or so). Great service, great palapas. Vendors walk the beach but are not at all pushy. There is a lifeguard who actually talks to people about safety around the waves (pelogrosso!) and rescues drunk seagulls. By and large it's pleasant beach area and we enjoyed a few days there.

Pool Areas - both the pool at the hotel and beach club are fine, seem to be well maintained and as usual, frequented by kids and families. Didn't use them much as we prefer hanging out at the beach.

Food - a pleasant surprise. In general well prepared and fresh tasting - better than Las Brisas - but in all fairness did not have near the volume nor variety of dishes. There is a single air-conditioned Buffet room, no a la cartes, but the beach club did a good job as well for daytime lunch, snacks and drinks. As most reviewers have noted the breakfast was nicely done and my partner was pleased to find a full tub of bacon and always fresh scrambled eggs with a variety of hot sauces available every morning. There was a "hot prep" station for anyone who wanted an omelet, burrito or such custom cooked. And yes, some folks really do mix it up with the grasshoppers but I confess to a single minded preoccupation with chiliquitos, fresh fruit, coffee and grapefruit juice.

Bar - lobby bar is pretty basic and seems to be staffed by whoever is available from the buffet staff. Menu is limited with few "premium" brands - couldn't get a martini for instance but the buffet staff did get my partner the makings for special coffees after some late night snacks. The beach club bar was well run and organized, responsive and effective - the bartenders make good solid drinks and really try to make the drinks to your liking. Bring your own insulated mug - well worth packing and lugging around.

Room - basic, needs some reno work but again clean and well serviced, some rustic wooden furniture, no fan and the air conditioning was a bit feeble but we slept okay. Two double beds, a big deck facing the main boulevard of SC - which was okay, not a noisy place either in town or the hotel itself. It was booked as "run of the house" and we were comfortable there.

Service - as noted in our LB review, consistently very good. Despite language challenges, the staff did their best to take good care of us. One of our servers, a young pleasant guy - Ceasar - took it upon himself to instruct us in spanish and whenever he was around he'd come by for a little conversation or to help us out. And again at the beach club we found a couple of guys who realized our difficulties with Spanish and would also be attentive to help out when things got a little confusing. Also noteworthy and gratifying: as we were waiting in the lobby bar to catch our bus to the airport - it was crowded and chaotic with incoming arrivals due to the Mexican Easter holiday - one of the housekeeping staff tracked me down to return a credit card I left in the safe - doh! - but she was comparing the card's pic to everyone until she found me.

Tips - we tipped modestly and regularly (usually around 20 pesos - sometimes less, sometimes) - well earned, graciously received and much appreciated.

Entertainment - none really but one night there was a guitarist in the lobby that did local folk-type tunes, that drew us in for a few drinks.

Getting around - we found this to be a good location overall because we were right in Santa Cruz and could easily walk to La Crucecita and the beach club.There's always taxi's outside the hotel, in the market and marina area, and even if you walk anywhere damn near every one of the reported 500 taxi's in the area will pass by, slow down and beep at you to see if you want a lift. Standard fare around town seems to be 20-30 pesos - they all do flat rates, no meters. We rented a car for a couple of days to check out more of the area (Puerto Escondito - great day trip)

Liked least -
1. feeble a/c and no fan for back up.
2. bar service at the hotel.

Liked best - staff, service, food and overall good value - and as we noted in our LB review, an even better intro for us to a wonderful area of Mexico that we will return to!

Would we return? For sure. Totally sold on Huatulco....we'd like to live off the economy but the packages including flight and stay at Hotel Castillo are simply great value. We'd recommend Castillo to friends looking for more rustic AI experience with a local flavour.

Hola!

Hotel Castillo Huatulco has been our destination for the past two years and we are going back next winter again for two months. It is small, quaint, friendly and very clean. Food is good and a club sandwich, any time of the day, will hold you until the buffet dinner in the evening. Lunch is served daily at the hotel's private beach club, and if you are a breakfast person, you will find lots of food every morning until 11 o'clock at the superb breakfast buffet.

Staff, guests and local residents are part of the enjoyment of your stay. Acapulco, Cancun and Puerto Vallarta have a different flavor...and the big 5-star resorts do not give you the feel of a Mexican community. This place does. If you are a nature lover, a people person, or just plain feel like being lazy in the abundant sun with a good book...this is the place. Fantastic laid-back guests, who do not fret over the small stuff, mingle in the lobby bar every evening.

Long-term stays are ideal for young at heart retirees like us. Just call or e-mail the hotel directly for long-term rates. We do not go through a travel agency. Be patient as most employees do not speak English very well...which makes the place charming and authentic.

If you do come down next winter look us up. We are in the lobby most evenings with a good book, our computer and a glass of white wine...that is until we run into repeat customers that have become friends. Spontaneously, families with kids young and old, will challenge anyone willing at a game of pool around the table off the lobby bar. There is fun for everyone! If you don't like the crowd in the lobby bar you can just hang around the pool at the back of the hotel sipping a marguerita or go for a nice long walk along the beach, or have a coffee in the town square, or have dinner in La Crucecita. This is where the sun always shines...

Please feel free to contact me directly for more information.
