***A KEY POINT ABOUT HOTELS AND RESORTS IS THAT THE USE OF HOTEL/RESORT GROUNDS ARE AVAILABLE AT A DAYPASS RATE TO THOSE RENTING PRIVATE VILLAS WHO SIMPLY WISH TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE AMMENITIES FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS.
Huatulco, Mexico has some of the most luxurious resorts for your perfect tropical getaway, and the majority of these 5-star resorts are all located in breathtaking Tangolunda Bay. These resorts offer everything from hotel style rooms to personal suites located right on private beaches. With any rental, you get full access to all of the amenities the resort has to offer including pools, tennis courts, beach volleyball and many more great activities and resort grounds.
For those that prefer the comfort and privacy of renting their own Huatulco villa, they need not worry because as mentioned the use of hotel/resort grounds is available at a day pass rate for those renting private villas. That way you can rent your own Huatulco villa and still take advantage of the resorts’ grounds and amenities for a couple of days. These passes only cost between $10-$20 per person and it’s even less for children. For more information you can contact the hotels and resorts directly.
