Camino Real Zaashila
A classy Mediterranean-style resort on its own beach on the Pacific Ocean at Huatulco.
The low-rise beach resort Camino Real Zaashila sits on its own beach at Huatulco, where there are nine bays along a rugged Pacific coastline. With 151 rooms it is not overwhelmingly huge, and consists of a jumble of smart accommodation in a Moorish/Mediterranean style, with while the predominant colour and interior décor light and airy, with simple but well made modern minimalist furnishings.
As befits a resort of its size and superior quality, there is a large menu of facilities. The property is dominated by a huge free-form swimming pool and there’s also a children’s pool, tennis court, Jacuzzi, gym and boutique. You have four restaurants to choose from with different specialities from local cuisine to Asian dishes (meals are not included so you pay only for what you order). A fully comprehensive spa is on site, offering a variety of massages and facial treatments.
What our clients say
Most memorable aspect: “The view from Monte Alban across Oaxaca and the valleys around. Eating in Cafe Tacuba in Mexico City with a troop of troubadours playing would come a close second, followed by the flight to Huatulco when we flew all along the coast before landing, courtesy of a local businessman who was playing host to an American novelist. Xochimilco was also memorable and fun.JB, Dublin
Highlights: Discovering and enjoying the Mexican culture and despite pre visit warnings, being so surprised that Mexico City is nothing like as dangerous a place to visit as I had expected.Cw, Macclesfield
Highlights?: Too many! Probably seeing Uxmal, the Tiger Egret, swimming in Cenotes (various), Chichen-Itza at dawn and visiting Frida Kahlo's house.AA, Newport
My sister summed it up by saying that there was nothing that she would have changed, the holiday was perfect. Mexico was a delight, we had never been before, the people sincerely friendly and helpful, the service as great but everything exceeded expectations. My sister and the children thought that the cenotes were amazing as they were such a surprise but we loved it all.RN, Ascot
Highlights: Boat trip to Yaxchilan - jungle and ruins were great. Gardens and pool at Hacienda Chichen were lovely. Cuernavaca was a lovely town and we enjoyed Robert Brady museum….San Cristobal - also lovely”CW, London
Visiting the Mayan villages outside San Christobal de las Casas.CM, Kingston upon thames
