I read every review available before booking at Binniguenda. I would now toss the few poor reviews as far in the ocean from the beautiful beach club as I could! This hotel is a gem from the moment you pull up to the entrance. You are welcomed like family-muchas gracias Viry. She is a treasure! The hotel is 30 years old but in fantastic shape, deep cleaning in hallways and rooms happens often. The pool is really nice and sparkling clean and a perfect temp. The gardens are wonderful to stroll thru on the trails. Meals were good, lots of fresh fruit and salads with mains geared to National dishes as the majority of guests are Nationals and are very friendly and love to help you with your Spanish. The dinner show is great with amazing dancers- very professional and top grade. A nice surprise! Beds are fairly comfortable, nice pillows. Service in every area is great-Saul, Lorenzo and the others are happy and helpful. Fun to banter with! We will definitely stay at Binni on our next visit!
Binniguenda...A hidden gem

January 2023 This was our first visit to Huatulco. We have heard amazing things about Huatulco and it did not disappoint. We stayed at the Binniguenda for 12 days, we had a second floor room overlooking the courtyard area. It had a king size bed and was a good sized room. The resort has one buffet, 1 ala carte and 2 bars. The buffet is open from 7:30 am - 11:30 am for breakfast, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm for lunch and 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm for dinner. There is a snack bar open from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm. The snack bar offers drinks from 11:00 am - 5:00 pm and the Lobby Bar opened at 5:00 pm The Tangolunda (ala carte) offered 3 different meals, Spanish, French and Italian. There was only one sitting time which was at 8:30 pm. This restaurant required a reservation which you had to wait in line for the day of your meal ( Tuesday, Friday, Saturday). They began taking reservations at 9:00 am. They only took up to 26 people in the restaurant and there was a strict dress code...especially for men. Long pants, closed toed shoes (no running shoes), button up shirt. The snack bar offered a good variety of food...hot dogs, hamburgers, nachos, fries etc. Breakfast and supper were very traditional Mexican food, although there was an omelette station, and Sylvia Diaz made the best omelettes. After a couple of days of us being there, when she saw us she remembered exactly what our order was. We did not eat lunch at the resort as we were always at the Niru Beach Club. Dinner was okay. Very traditional Mexican food. The Niru Beach Club was absolutely amazing. Fabulous addition to the resort. There was a shuttle that ran every 30 minutes but we never used it as it was only a 7 minute walk from the resort. The beach club opened daily at 10:00 am and closed at 5:30 pm. We were there daily at 10:00 am and never had to worry about not getting a lounge chair. By noon it got busier but you could usually find a lounger. There is the option of a buffet or ordering from the snack bar, but they did not start serving until 1:00 pm. The bar opened at 10:00 am. The beautiful infinity pool overlooked the beach and the ocean. The animation team provided activities at the beach club for those wanting to participate. Just any FYI there is construction going on, on either side of the beach club. It didn't really bother us, as the beach club always had music playing. There was a nightly show at 9:00 pm which was well done and entertaining. The staff at the resort were very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff, Pedro, Montse, Julio and Vidi were always there if we needed anything. Lorenzo at the Lobby Bar made a great paralyzer. The restaurant and bar staff who were also kind and helpful were Gabriela, Abril, Sonia, Alma and Raul. The bar tenders at the beach club, Aramis and Daniel, got to know exactly what our favorite drinks were. A huge shout out to Francisco and Eliseo who were great waiters and always knew what we wanted. Our biggest shout out goes to our favorite waiter Rubicel. By day 2 he knew our morning coffee/juice order, our lunch time drink order and our supper drink orders. He is friendly, kind and always took the time to have a chat with us and made sure we always had everything we needed. Thank you Rubicel for making our stay just that much better. The rooms were always very clean and everyday we would come back to our room, number 514 and there would be a towel animal on the bed along with 2 chocolates. The grounds of the resort were very well kept and people were always sweeping and cleaning. Our only negative about the resort was the lack of choice at the buffet. We can appreciate that it was very authentic Mexican, but we did struggle with choices at supper. The ala carte restaurant was wonderful, we really enjoyed the Spanish and the Italian meals. An added bonus would have been an ice cream station. We went out for 3 different dinners, for the sake of variety. We really enjoyed our evenings out at Terra Cotta, Oro Negro, and Viena...great food! Our overall experience at the Binniguenda was wonderful and we truly did not want to leave. We would definitely recommend this resort, especially with the amazing beach club and hope to return some day.
Binniguenda’s Beach Club is Wonderful

Having access to the new beach club sets this property above many because of the easy access to a quiet section of the sea on Santa Cruz Bahia where one can have access to a chaise under umbrellas on the beach, enjoy a very good lunch at the infinity pool, a bus to take you to and fro and within each access to the rest of Santa Cruz and the market.
Feels like home away from home

We love it here. Stayed twice and will be back. Small resort in town allows you to experience local attractions with ease. Safe and welcoming community. Weather is always the same - absolutely amazing.

Comfortable all inclusive resort with lovely pool and awesome ocean beach club a few blocks away. Staff were very welcoming. Buffet breakfast and lunches were good. Supper buffet was disappointing - but there are many good restaurants near by. Overall, a great location and comfortable place to stay when enjoying Huatulco.
