    It's worth it!

    I had the pleasure of staying at Las Palmas last week for a whole week with about forty of my closest friends and family. We celebrated mine and my new husbands wedding. My heart goes out to the pueblo of Huatulco and the amazing place that all who call it home have created. Las Palmas is a unique experience to say the least. The thoughtful and diverse landscape provide a natural and harmonious environment that bring the outside in. The staff here is top notch including guest services, cleaning crew, maintenance and everyone in between. Las Palmas provide a private and intimate environment. All our guest were trilled with their experience and described it as a great vacation. That was an important theme for Alex and I. Though we were all were there to celebrate our union, it was an opportunity for everyone to let their hair down. The private beach is gorgeous. The views will touch your soul. The food was rich in flavor. I can't wait to come back to Las Palmas.

    Totally Awesome Destination Wedding At Las Palmas

    My daughter and son-in-law were recently married at the Las Palmas Huatulco resort and it was fantastic! All of the resort staff were super friendly and went over and above to fill our every need. A special thank you to Oscar and Daniel, our amazing concierges, as well as the cooks who made all those delicious meals. Las Palmas offered true mexican hospitality in a venue that is totally breathtaking. After spending 7 fun-in-the-sun days at this resort I can only say WOW ! My wife and I have vacationed in many places including others resorts on both sides of Mexico, but none have offered the intimacy and privacy we found at Las Palmas. There were 24 in our wedding group and we had booked about 3/4 of the resort. There were 3 infinity pools available to us, plus 2 shared private kitchen/lounge areas and the common dining area where the kitchen staff fed us their amazing meals. The maids were friendly and thorough in their cleaning duties and the staff that maintained the grounds and buildings were always busy keeping the place looking totally beautiful. A big plus is the lovely Playa La Violin beach that is very private with very few visitors other than those from Las Palmas. The snorkelling here is also quite good but take insect repellent for on the beach, especially for early morning or in the evening. From Las Palmas it is a short 5 minute walk to the lighthouse which provides an excellent view especially at sunset. It is also an easy 15 minute walk to La Entegra beach which offers plenty of water sports and beach bars. A 5 minute taxi ride takes you into the markets of Crucecita or Santa Cruz. Thanks again to all the staff at Las Palmas for helping to make my daughter and son-in-laws wedding so amazing!

    As good as it looks.

    The first wow factor is driving towards the hotel. You look above the roadway from a distance to see the palm surrounded red roof tiles and the yellow villas and casitas. The stone wall is bouganvilla draped and the iron gate slides opens to the hotel fountain and gardens. Up the stairs is reception and your first glance at the views. The two acre property is 175 feet (55m) above sea level and the perch affords views of the sea to the south, west and east and the Sierra Madre Mountains to the north. The winding access road is a 60 Peso taxi ride from La Crucecita or Santa Cruz (some guests walk or bike ride the 3kms-2 miles to Santa Cruz). It's a 230 Peso local fare to the airport. The official from the airport rate is more than double. You’ll get a pre-arrival e-mail from Talina indicating charges for optional airport pick-up and optional grocery supplies for your casita/villa. La Entrega Beach and its restaurants and water toy rental is 30 Pesos away, but can be walked on a steep road in under 10 minutes. Twenty if you want to see the views from El Faro, the lighthouse. La Entrega is a good lunch destination if you arrive before your check-in time. Playa Violin is closer and steeper with no services, but you'll likely have the tiny beach to yourself weekdays. Both are snorkel beaches. This circa 2007 hotel is 18 rooms frequented by weddings and returnees. Weddings are big stuff and book the place out well in advance for more or less a week at a time. Villas are rented in their entirety, not room by room. I cannot imagine a better wedding venue for a party of approximately 50. It would be so much more personal than a corner of a 400+ guest all-inclusive. I cannot imagine the vision the owners and architect had to transform the scrubby raw land to this beauty. LP seems laid back and respectfully quiet with guests out exploring so the place was often empty. There are not many places where you walk out of your casita and have the pool to yourself. AIways quiet? Hmmm, I noticed a crib and highchair on the property and good sized stereo speakers in the palapa. There are three drop dead gorgeous 4-bedroom 5000 sq ft ocean view villas on the grounds, each with its own infinity pool so we seldom saw the villa guests. Actually, one villa is 7000 sq ft with 5 bathrooms and an elevator. We stayed in one of the five casitas that share a large infinity pool. Our casita was beside the palapa where there is Lucy the parrot, a BBQ for guests, staff operated kitchen, bathrooms, a take-one-leave-one book and DVD stand and a TV. There are round tables in the palapa to provide a good spot for that BBQ'd steak or pizza. The palapa bar is self-serve and stocked by guests who donate their bottles before heading home. You are welcome to help yourself. What a nice touch. Hope I'm forgiven for donating spicy tamarind vodka I bought in error. The hotel will provide a cook if you want to be catered. Perfect if you have been fishing or want breakfast or dinner made. If you are lucky, Margarita the skilled cook and her helpers might make a group dinner for all the guests if there is interest. We were lucky enough for that. Our casita was 1000+ sq ft (100 m2) with two full bathrooms, a king bed, a single bed, kitchen with full sized fridge, blender, toaster, coffee pot, juicer, gas cooktop and a huge welcome basket of fruit and coffee. There was a security safe too small for a laptop and an iPod clock/dock. There was an umbrella too. Furnishings are basic, but adequate. The motif is colourful Mexican tile counters and red tile floors. The extensive onyx of the villas is fancier. There was laundry service at 50 Pesos/basket. The toiletries were a selection of Mazunte products including an effective bug repellent. The large living room had a DVD and a TV with Sky satellite Spanish feed. Sky has some English like CNN/Fox News and the NFL channel. Sky has Stingray Music. There was even a surge protector for your electronics. Included Wi-Fi was strong. Apparently Wi-Fi was via cell and a weak point until the hotel financed the cable that was supposed to be part of the services in the area, but never completed. Our casita had a west facing patio poolside and an east facing balcony off the bedroom. The casita was air-conditioned, but we just left the doors open and the ceiling fans on. The doors and windows were screened and we didn't experience bugs in the casita other than some ants. Ants meant we could not leave any food out even for minutes, but the microwave is a good storage spot. We did have mosquitoes at the palapa on evenings of no breeze. We used the palapa for some dinners and found the overhead fans help keep the evening mosquitos away. There are a couple of rooftop terraces with 360° views for sunrise and sunset. Sometimes many of the guests will meet on one for a sunset toast. The adjacent property is natural scrub forest and active with colourful birds, squirrels, and the odd tejon. I’m betting there are many crawly and slithering things too. The forest activity is viewed from windows and terraces and sometimes during travel to Violin Beach. Security? Some staff live on the gated property and there is walk-about security after hours. All the guests left the doors open, even when leaving for the day. Open doors allow some road noise to some units, but the road is quiet at night. Communication with staff from booking with U.S. based Courtney through to departure was flawless. The hotel is staffed with general manager Talina, concierges Oscar and Daniel , cleaners Judit and her crew and maintenance Eric and his crew and the cooks. In total there are about 15 employees making it work. More when required. Daniel and Oscar do swing shifts from 7am to 11pm. Talina, Daniel and Oscar are very helpful with anything from where to get ice or replenishing drinking water, to calling taxis, booking restaurants or arranging massages, in room manicures, aqua aerobics, fishing or tours, etc. They grew up in the area and know it inside out. Las Palmas combines the best attributes of a private condo and personal boutique luxury hotel service. That might explain so many returning guests. Checking out is like leaving a second home. LP is a special find and I hesitate to share it. Hint: pack a floatie for lazing in the pool or taking to the beach.

    Las Palmas review

    After visiting and staying at many five-star resorts in Mexico and others around the world, nothing can compare to the amazing experience our family enjoyed during our vacation at Las Palmas Villas and Casitas in Huatulco. The dramatic views of the ocean, rocky coastline, sunsets and sunrises from the property are beyond description. The villas and casitas were outstanding, furnished wonderfully and the property’s location is perfect. It is secluded, quiet, private and away from the larger resorts but is only a five minute cab drive to two adorable towns, dozens of restaurants, shopping and several beaches. The short trail down from the property to the secluded cove and beach offered privacy and incredible snorkeling. The open air living and dining room areas were stunning. The infinity pools, landscaping and walkways were meticulously maintained, and the roof top decks were the place to be at sunset or sunrise. For all the beauty and incredible accommodations that Las Palmas offers, what sets this resort apart from others is the attention to detail we received from the staff from the moment we arrived, to the morning we left. The staff was unlike any villa, resort or hotel we have ever stayed at. Courtney, the general manager or as she likes to be called “Director of Escapes”, made our original inquiry, booking process and arrival requests so easy. She was very friendly, informative, prompt in returning every email and was a delight to work with. Our on-site manager Talina took care of our daily needs, and our concierges Oscar and Daniel, arranged all of our off site and on-site activities. They provided excellent recommendations for local restaurants, massages, boating, fishing, site seeing and other fun activities. They all spoke perfect English, were extremely knowledgeable, warm and very welcoming as well. The house keeping staff kept our villa spotless and they were extremely professional, polite, friendly and cooked for us several times. The farm fresh food and presentations for breakfast, lunch or dinner were outstanding and as nice as any restaurant we have ever experienced. Our housekeepers Margarita and Nico prepared amazing and authentic traditional meals which were delicious. The maintenance and garden staff were quiet and respectful, and we rarely knew they were there. While coming to and from the property, or while walking around the gardens and palapas, we met several Las Palmas clients. One couple was staying on their tenth year in a row “and counting”. The family renting the villa next door had also stayed there several times before. Several of the guests, from all over the world, knew each other from previous visits to this magical place. Everyone we met at Las Palmas was fun and friendly and while making new friends, we still always had our privacy. After spending two days of our planned eight day stay at Las Palmas, we were so thrilled with the experience our family was having we contacted Courtney and booked another stay for next year. We will be anxiously awaiting our return and for many years to come. If you want the best Mexico experience possible, visit beautiful Huatulco and stay at the amazing Las Palmas Villas and Casitas.

    Recently spent 2 weeks at Las Palmas. We had been there 8 years ago, and had always wanted to return, and finally got it done. It was as amazing as I had remembered - even better. Beautiful place, a little out of town. But we could walk to La Entrega beach, which we went to at least 5 times. Oscar and Daniel and Talina really looked after us. Everything from calling taxis to making dinner reservations to booking outings during the day. They were awesome. All the staff were so friendly and accommodating. We had the same unit as 8 years ago - Spanish Bay. Every morning we had our breakfast out on the deck, with gorgeous views of the ocean, and watched the boats coming and going. Then we would have a cocktail, there, in the evening and watch the sun go down. Also met lots of other fun and interesting guests. I was sad to leave.
