    Las Brisas Huatulco
    Santa María Huatulco
    3.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 6087 reviewsTripAdvisor (6087)

    Perched along the Bays of Huatulco (and roughly 20 miles southeast of Huatulco town), Las Brisas offers escapists a sense of seclusion. And some guests note that the feeling of isolation doesn't just apply to the resort, but to some of the rooms as well. This 484-room property sprawls out across a whopping 50-acre swath of land and previous visitors say that getting around the resort can be exhausting. To save yourself from a considerable trek, request a room near the lobby. As for the accommodations themselves, some guests note that the rooms could use a facelift, but most travelers were pleased with the high-end in-suite amenities, including cable TVs, minibars and marble bathrooms. And though the resort's size may strain your legs, it does afford access to three private beaches and three swimming pools, not to mention a theater and seven eateries (plus a lounge). Travelers can choose whether or not to participate in an all-inclusive plan, which will cover meal costs at the main buffet (plus three à-la-carte dining experiences at any of the specialty restaurants), children's programs at the Mini Club (for guests ages 6 to 11) and evening entertainment in the room rate.
