This review is late in coming, only because time flies. With winter on the doorstep we're looking at returning to the lovely and peaceful Huatulco area. After 50+ trips to Mexico we decided to try Huatulco and were glad we did and also glad we chose David and Marie's condo as our first accommodation. Normally we know exactly what to expect once we land so this would be new for us. Once the taxi dropped us off we felt comfortable immediately as we were greeted by Rebecca who was very friendly and helpful. As she was showing us around we found that the WiFi wasn't working. She looked into it and found out that some workers had cut into a line but promised to get it fixed ASAP. I was sceptical since things do not always happen quickly in Mexico but it was fixed the next day and we had strong and reliable signal from then on.
When you rent several condos you see quickly which are strictly rentals with cheap or sparse furniture, minimal decoration and spotty upkeep and which have the owner's touch and sense of pride. Honestly, we could easily live in this condo and call it home. The bed was of high quality and we slept very well. We actually spent most of our time on the large, well furnished balcony where we could see the lovely park across the street and catch a glimpse of the beach which was less than a 5 minute walk. It's a great little beach with calm waters and several restaurants. Don't be put off by the young men who will try to convince you to try their restaurant. Let them guide you, they will find you a nice table and from then on nobody bothers you unless you want something. You could sit there all day and just have a beer or 2 but the food and snacks are worth trying. We really enjoyed the many food vendors that walked along the beach.
We're in our late 50's and walking was no problem. We spent a lot of time at La Crucecita and also stayed in another area during our vacation but we really liked the atmosphere at Santa Cruz, especially at the coffee shop in the middle of the park. It's a favourite spot for the local families in the evenings and there is often great live entertainment.
We really enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to rent this condo again.
This condo is amazing! There isn't one thing that we could have needed that wasn;t there. The towels were fluffy and soft, the beds super comfortable, she even had "to go coffee mugs". It was nice to have the 5 gallon water jug to drink from and make ice cubes. The condo was very clean and well maintained. the balcony had a great view. Marie was quick to reply to any emails I sent and gave us good information. I admit I was a little nervous that there wasn't a safe to lock up our passports but after arriving I realized I had no need to worry the condo is really safe. Location is great only a very short walk to the beach (ask for Jose Caldron) Try Beduino across the street for some local food, Cafe Juanita for a sandwich! Rebecca was also very helpful, kind and caring. She has some great ideas if you are looking for something to do. FYI it cost 370 pesos from airport to condo and 150 peso back, La Crucecita is 250 pesos and go to TerraCotta for airconditioning and Pan Franseca. I have already recommended this condo to a friend and can't wait to return I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Since we were there over Easter holiday the beach was busy with local families and 2 cruise ships came in but we didn't feel crowded on the beach or at the restaurants at all and met some fun people.
What a wonderful experience we had on our first trip to Huatulco. Ocean Park Condos are located so close to the beach and have the best location in Santa Cruz.The condo itself was even better than we expected! The beach here has soft sand and calm water which we really enjoyed. We were impressed by the care and attention the entire building receives. Our condo was beautifully appointed, equipped with everything you might need, including a BBQ, and was very clean and comfortable. The king size bed in the master was so comfortable! We didn't use the second bedroom but it also has excellent beds. Dealing with the owners was seamless. Marie responded to questions quickly and was a pleasure to work with. Talking with her by phone answered a lot of questions and it is evident she takes great pride in this condo - and so she should. Morning coffee on the huge terrace, sitting in very comfortable loungers, started each day for us. We enjoyed the local restaurants, and either walked, or took a very inexpensive taxi into La Crucecita to eat at some of their fabulous eateries. The condo pool was a lovely spot to cool off and meet other residents. Also, it was very convenient to have Wifi right in the unit.The service we received was impeccable. Rebeca met us upon arrival and was so helpful as were the rest of the staff at Propiedades Ideal. The smallest request was dealt with promptly. Mary kept our unit spotless three times a week - what more could one ask for! We couldn't have been happier and look forward to a return in the future and would highly recommend this condo.
We had an excellent stay at this property. The property manager, Rebecca provides excellent customer service and is very personable. She was always ready to provide information on the surrounding area, from shopping to sightseeing, and was very responsive to our needs.
The condo is beautifully appointed with first class furnishings, appliances and utensils. The unit is very close to the beach and beach restaurants. For people who wish to relax and enjoy the beach, sun and heat of Huatlco this condo is recommended. If you are looking forward to more nightlife you need to take a taxi to one of the bays with the more established hotel complexes.
This condo has everything that you need and a LOT more, starting with the great service from Rebeca, Julian and all the personnel in the office (including Mary the lady that clean our unit every other day) the condo was very nice and clean, air conditioning, laundry room balcony with partial ocean view and also view to the cruise ship, excellent pool, gated parking with remote control for our rental car, steps to the beach, restaurants and the placita where they have all kinds of shops...oh and lets not forget the BEAUTIFUL MARINA!
“Make sure that you rent unit # 6 the owner Mary has the best condo here, wonderful and with a very good taste decoration. We hired a yacht service for the whole day for a deep sea fishing trip and to tour the 9 bays, the captain Roberto and crew man Omar were the best! Make sure that you look for them because they have the nicest yacht and very good prices. For a place to eat all the restaurants are good but if you are into seafood you have to try LA CASA DE LAS TILAPIAS they have a very good whole fry fish in town.” Also in the Crucecita town you should try "EL SABOR DE OAXACA RESTAURANT" it was great!
Mary, THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing your place with us. WE WILL BE BACK!!
Luis and Delia Jasso
We love the Huatulco/Santa Cruz area and have stay several times at the all inclusive resorts. This trip my husband and I were joined with another couple and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marie and David's condo. It is mere steps away from the beach (including restaurants) and market place. The condo was well appointed, very clean and had everything you could need or want for your stay. We made the most of the beautiful weather by having most of our meals on the spacious patio which overlooks the Santa Cruz square with views of the beach and ocean. The on-site managers were helpful on area information (ie: taxi trips to other bays/beaches). It was an unexpected bonus having a cleaning lady every other day. Marie was always prompt at answering questions and returning emails. Thanks again Marie and David for a wonderful stay.
