This was our third time to Huatulco, the first couple of times we stayed in one of the large hotels in Tangolunda. We really enjoyed this hotel, which as many reviewers have said - is quaint and not americanized!
Our quiet, clean room, with a great balcony, overlooked the street - not noisy as you might think, but an interesting view of the Marina, and activity on the street. We also liked the 10-15 mins walk to the beach club (although there is a convenient shuttle bus every 15 mins or so).
The food was more Mexican than north american, and we loved it all. The staff were excellent, very friendly and when they tried to speak English we tried out our "simple" spanish. It was fun.
We met some great people there, including a little Mexican girl aged 7 years, who had lost her front teeth. She used to walk up to my husband whenever he was sitting around the pool, go right up to his face and chat with him in Spanish. He always nodded his head, shrugged his shoulders and said "no comprendez" ... she would smile and wave goodbye. Her mother told us that she is called "Periquito" at school! We weren't surprised!
We would definitely return to the Castillo, and would recommend it if you want to experience a more Mexican feel to a hotel in Huatulco.
