6/10 Good

It my not be for everyone as this site is on a hill and away from the core of things. Its an older place but has some charm to it. Some places have a fridge and stove which are nice and the view from the hill is amazing but the stairs may not be for everyone. The mosquitos can get bad. The pool is nice and the beaches are many in the area. Can rent bikes in town and there are some great places to eat in town a walk down a big hill which takes about 40 minutes plus there is a big mall with everything to fill a fridge. Its a wonderful area its just kind of older. So don't expect plush modern day american all you can eat sort of place. If you don't mind some stair climbs and and an older place. The pool is nice at night after hiking/biking. Don't drink the water!

10/10 Exceptional

Absolutely incredible View of Santa Cruz and Marina. Breathtaking. Id go back! Warning: you must be a fit active person or open to excercise.... to walk up and down the stairs to the private beach. (Pool is closer to rooms. Its nice.) (No service or umbrellas on beach.) I enjoy the exercise! This place has character and charm. Not safe for lazy or small children. Like everywhere in Mexico you must watch where you are stepping. Some of the railings are high...hill is very steep down... needs work , and some cracks need filled...but the ceiling fan works ! air conditioning works! the shower was hot! Cold drinks at front...Quiet dead end side street with cab every where... it's a family-run business...never stole a thing... anything we needed, just ask and they take care of. Not a place for high maintenance people. Some bugs...some stains...but clean bed...and clean towels. Close to amazing local el Torino tacos and fresh fruit juice....behind the Pamex gas station. I got fresh cheap fruit and avocados from local market in LA crucecita and I cut it up in my room every morning. Went out for dinner, many excellent restaurants in Huatulco. I recommend Westpark Cafe for breakfast and lunch. Just asked a local with good English they will tell you the best restaurants or make friends with an expat they know the lay of the land. Not strict on masks unless the cruise ships come in in Santa Cruz. Oxygen is essential for Respiratory health after all. God bless.

4/10 Fair

This hotel has amazing views and super friendly staff! However, the hotel itself needs a lot of repair. The water ran out on one of the days and when we finally got water it was very dirty. The sink, toilet and shower water were all brown. The bathroom is very tiny and there’s no division between shower and toilet seat. The path to the beach access was not clean. There were empty beer cans and water bottles throughout the path. This place has a lot of potential, but unfortunately cleanliness doesn’t seem to be a priority.

4/10 Fair

Las instalaciones son muy viejas. La limpieza en genara está muy descuidada. Este establecimiento no es recomendable para adultos mayores. Tiene demasiadas escaleras y no es confortable. Los muebles y demás accesorios se están cayendo mobiliario muy viejo. Increíble en pleno 2020 y no cuentan con tv por cable o algún sistema similar. Solo TV abierta pero muy mala recepcion de señal, en mi estancia prácticamente no conté con TV. La seña de wifi muy débil. El acceso a la playa hay que bajar alrededor de 150 escalones y no es un acceso fácil. Dejan meter a las mascotas en la alberca. Pará alguien que no lleva mascota y ver que los perros estén dentro de la alberca es bastante desagradable. El estacionamiento es muy pequeño solo capacidad para 5 autos Cuando mucho. Agua no sale muy caliente aunque realmente por la ubicación geográfica no se necesita tanto.en general no es algo recomendable. No regreso a ese lugar. En precio es mejor pagar otro establecimiento.Pará llegar en auto o caminar una pendiente de alrededor de 400m de la zona urbana. En el predio de a un lado hay una cosntruccion que están llevando acabado y en días entre semana están trabajando desde las 7am no descansas ya que hay demasiado ruido. Mínimo durará 2 años mas esa construcción. su unico punto a favor es la vista al mar

8/10 Very good

Great with some exceptions
Stayed there for 5 nights and it was great, I didn't rated the max because it has some details to have into account if you have limited mobility: there are dangerous stairs in order to reach each room, if you tripped over the result could be bad; it doesn't have any drinks or food service, so you have to drive to get your own, or order something from the local restaurants; the parking space is small so if you're driving a minivan and there are more cars already parked it could be tricky to move in or out; if you pay with credit card there's a 6% more you'd have to pay, so only cash is accepted; wifi is practically non existent so you need to use your data mobile service.
