A charming hotel highlighted by authentic architecture, Hotel Villablanca Huatulco is a hidden gem in Chahue Bay offering cozy tropical escapes. The hotel is a short walk from the main square of La Crucecita, which features local vendors, great food and drink for a true taste of local Mexican life.
I was headed to the mountains of San Jose Del Pacifico and flew into Hualtulco for the evening before I headed up the mountain. I typically stay in Oaxaca City which I prefer but I was meeting up with some friends here. The hotel staff were super friendly and helpful. The air conditioner in my room wasn't working properly which could have been user error I admit and they came and fixed it right away. I had a light bite at the restaurant and the staff was super friendly and it was a tasty. The hotel seems to be geared towards family stay because there were families in the pool swimming and although the children were loud and I could hear them from my balcony they were not out super late so it was ok. There isn't much going on in the area as far as walking distance but there was a shopping strip about a 10 minute walk up the street with restaurants. If I visited Huatulco again I would stay here again.

Six of us stayed for a week at the Villa Blanca. It was a wonderful experience! Only a three black walk to the beach, the Villa Blanca is a wonderful tropical retreat. The pool area has trees and birds and even iguanas. Never a problem getting a chaise lounge and the drink service from the wonderful staff was impeccable. Sitting out on our poolside veranda in the mornings drinking coffee was so relaxing and beautiful. We partook of the warning breakfast only one time and it was delicious. However we did enjoy the afternoon snack menu and the amazing cheeseburgers, club sandwiches and wings.
The rooms were cleaned daily and were spotless. We asked for an extra coffee per day and are housekeeping staff provided that happily.
The only complaint was that the pool water was like a hot tub. We left daily to go either swim in the ocean or go to Clio's Beach club for cool refreshing water. If only some sort of cooling system could be set up for the pool, we would definitely return!
Thank you to Hugo and all of the staff for an absolutely wonderful week!
