Dreams Huatulco

BucksinOakville (Oakville, Canada) on Feb 03, 2023

We have been coming to Huatulco for over 15 years. You will not be disappointed in your stay at Dreams, last February we upgraded to the Preferred Rooms and have booked this again for our trip in February, 2023. Staff are extremely helpful Luis - Concierge, David - Pool, Julio - Italian Restaurant (his special coffees are a show in themselves). COVID has been hard on everyone, especially all staff here, so please remember to tip them, they certainly deserve it and go out of their way to ensure you have what you need. Make sure to take lots of sunscreen. Snorkeling is good off the beach, but the sand can get very hot so water shoes or flip flops are suggested.

Eufrosina & Yael at the breakfast place are fantastic. All the staff are truly lovely. Beautiful smiles, very welcoming. We love them all!!! The food & restaurants are really good, we loved the fresh greens & fruit shakes, easy to eat healthy while on holidays.

Great family trip

My stay at Dreams Huatulco was as good as I expected The private shuttle was excellent, approximately a 15-20mins drive. The check in process was long, but at least the bell staff took care of our luggages and we indulged in snacks and drinks in the Privilege Club lounge while checking in The hotel does show wear and tear and the wifi was slow throughout the resort, but the variety of food and beverage, cleanness, and outstanding service made up for it To be honest, there was nothing special about the room and the lighting was horrible, but was not a big deal for me. Everything worked in the room and had a great view of the ocean, so I was happy with that I really didn't feel any big difference having the Privilege Club as we made no use of a concierge and the beach and pool chairs is a whoever wakes up the earliest to block kind of game anyway and no dinner reservations are required. However, with Privilege Club you do have access to top shelf liquor throughout the week Not much happened at the pool, but could be as we travelled early December and the hotel was not full. The beach was nice if you could wake up early enough to block chairs in a nice area and when the water was calm. It was really nice to see so many birds diving in the ocean on the right side of the beach early morning and also very nice to see so many fish in the far left corner of the beach during the afternoon The resort is a perfect size as it does not take long to walk anywhere. The Japanese restaurant was my favourite, steak and Italian were good too. The resort did set up two outdoor dinner events while there as well. Lots of food variety at the buffet and grill restaurant during the afternoon and free 24hrs room service and coffee shop. I do not recommend eating snacks at the Privilege Club during the evenings as some items look like they've been sitting there all day. I do highly recommend venturing at least once into town (La Crucesita) for an authentic delicious meal, I promise you will not regret it This place is not party central, you'll see a lot of couples and large families, it's mainly a place to relax. The main lobby bar and entertainment shuts down approximately 11pm and hotel disco shuts down at 1am (not many went while there) Check out was smooth and so was our private shuttle back to the airport, which was worth it for us. A special mention goes to LEONEL who worked at the Japanese restaurant (7th of December) as his customer service was extraordinary and I was blown away of how superb he handled a situation when one of our family member suddenly fell ill LEONEL is truly a gem and THANK YOU Dreams for an amazing vacation!

Great Week at Dreams

Paulson-0927 on Jan 31, 2023

We just returned from a vacation for 13 people at Dreams Huatulco. The resort itself is showing some age BUT don't let that stop you from making this a destination for your next vacation/holiday. The service from the whole staff especially the pool/beach staff is 2nd to none. The rooms/resort were thoroughly cleaned daily. Restaurants served delicious food (again service was great), we especially liked the Asian restaurant. They had 2-specialty food & entertainment nights both were enjoyed by everyone in our group 1st was a BBQ night which included a music show, and the 2nd was Oaxacan/Mexican night which included a Mexican themed dance/music show the food was delicious at this one. Drinks were delicious and plentiful at the restaurants as well as the pool/beach and they use brand named liquor. The weather was perfect and probably the best part of the vacation 82-88 degrees daily. The resort and area does lack some of the excursions that the more populated areas of the Caribbean and Mexico offer but we were never bored. If you wanted to relax with a book quietly, have fun with the kids, or party like a rock star you could do all at this resort. It is also safe to go to the stores and restaurants in the area, which is a nice plus compared to other vacation destinations in 3rd world countries.
