Hotel Gavina Beach
Ranked #27 of 43 Huatulco B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 October 2012

We stopped by this hotel to take a quick look to Huatulco. The hotel is a walk distance to the harbor, it has a nice pool and the staff is really kind but not so helpful with locations.

The rooms are another story, a weird one. We stayed in a room almost at the top floor (no elevator), and the room was divided in two with the bathroom in the middle. The WC was inside the shower (first time I see this) and there was no door between the bathroom and the bedroom, only the shower curtain divides. If you are with family or couple you "might" not have issue with this, but if you are on business trip or with friends this will be a problem.

Restaurant Tip: Go to the Harbor there are a lot of tiny restaurants around (not so cheap)

Room Tip: If you don't want to climb a lot of stairs, take the rooms from the first floors.

We were a bit disappointed at first, but grew to like this hotel. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Our first night was not great since the AC didn't work well and we were hot. We complained and got a new room immediately that was much cooler. This is definitely a budget hotel -- dirty walls, some stains on the sheets, drippy faucets, etc. -- so don't expect a high-end resort. If you get a good price, though, it's fine. Nice pool, and we loved the iguanas in the tree behind the hotel. It is a very HOT 10 minute walk to Chahue Beach, a $2 taxi ride to town/restaurants. Be sure to get a hotel card and know how to describe the location (near Supermercado Che, across from the Best Western, etc.) because at least half of the taxi drivers had never heard of it. If I had to do it again I would probably stay in La Crucita, even if most of those hotels don't have a pool, and take a taxi to the beach. Stay here if you get a good price but don't expect luxury.
