HUATULCO RENTALS VACATION CONDOS... Very comfortable place! We have stayed twice now at this condo and have enjoyed it a lot.It is always clean upon arrival and is quite well equipped (blenders, microwave, toaster and a full fridge). The location to all the restaurants, markets and shopping in La Crucecita is perfect for those wanting to stay in the middle of the "action". The grounds are always well maintained and the pool is inviting and large. A great stay each time. Monte is very accommodating and always accessible should you need something extra at the condo. Highly recommend this place.

QUINTA ALEGRIA... Quinta Alegria meets all expectations from the moment you walk through the front door. The view is the first thing that captures your imagination, and you know from that point forward that your vacation planning has paid off. Quinta Alegria began to meet my expectations long before my wife and I arrived for our 16 day honeymoon stay. Monte, Quinta Alegria's owner, made sure that every request was handled promptly and with style, even though he was in Colombia at the time. Everything from fresh flowers to chef services and massages at the villa were taken care of just as I had requested. Doña Rosa, our hostess while we were there, made the trip a delight. She is always smiling and , if you speak Spanish, tells great stories with all the attendant animation. Doña Rosa was our chef while we were at Quinta Alegria, and we were so happy to have made that choice. There are no tables at which to dine that are better than those at the villa. Our meal was always attended by a gorgeous sunset and that ever enrapturing view. Doña Rosa's cooking is superb and always fresh. We had one dish twice only because it was by request. Her Enchiladas Suissa, hand-made lasagna and seafood dishes were fantastic, and she puts effort into her plating that makes for not only good food, but an excellent presentation as well. Rolando, the grounds keeper, is a genuinely nice guy that is always ready to help or share stories about his village. We enjoyed his company immensely. My wife loves cold coconut water, and all she had to do was mention it in passing one day. After that, Rolando made sure that she was never out, and took great pains to harvest, open and refrigerate her coconut nectar. Thank you to Monte, Rosa and Rolando for giving us a wonderful honeymoon that we will remember forever. We can't wait to get back to see our friends!

QUINTA ALEGRIA... My wife and I, along with 3 other couples, rented this beautiful villa for a week. it was everything as advertised. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Rosa, the cook and house manager, went way over board to make sure that she and the staff met our every need, and then some. Working with Monte, the owner, before our visit was easy. He was very accessible and helpful. He even called twice while we were there to be sure that all was well and that we were enjoying ourselves. We will definitely go back, and we highly recommend it.

QUINTA ALEGRIA... The reviews are all spot on. Quinta Alegria is amazing. Our group of friends (4 adults and three kids ages 9, 12 and 12) spent Spring Break at the Quinta Alegria in 2009. This was our second trip to Huatulco and by far the best. We were welcomed by Monte and his wonderful staff. All the adults enjoyed the Monte margaritas, superb! Temperatures were in the mid to high 90's so the pool was a great and scenic way to cool off. The house sits on a bluff above one of the beautiful bays and it looks like a postcard. We were also able to walk down the hill to the public beach that used to be a beach club. We had the beach to ourselves and it was hard to believe that this was all at our disposal during the week. We opted to have Dona Rosa cook for us during the week. She did not disappoint and she was so good about being sensitive to picky eaters and dietary needs. Monte helped us arrange a boat tour that was great fun. We also decided to have a barbecue (Mexico style) on our last evening. La Crucecita is just a five minute cab ride from the house. I think for four people we paid something around 3-5 dollars one way. Very reasonable. The rooms were great too. The entire house is unbelievable. At night we went up to the roof to do some star gazing since the sky is so clear. I could go on forever about this place, but it is so worth the visit. We will definitely return to Quinta Alegria.

QUINTA ALEGRIA... My girlfriend and I stayed at Quinta Alegria at the end of February, 2011 and as soon as we arrived we were planning our return. The home is beautiful and the view when you walk in the front door is simply stunning. Birds soar over the cliffs, and you awake every morning to fresh breezes and a glittering sunrise. The surrounding vicinity is also very beautiful and we spent many hours at the area beaches and sights, but we found ourselves spending lots of time around the house each day just because the setting was so idyllic. After a long day spent at the beach, it's hard to beat sipping a Margarita while lounging in the pool as yet another spectacular sunset unfolds before your eyes. What makes the place really special, however, is the hospitality of Monte the owner, Rosa the chef and Rolando the grounds keeper. They made us feel completely at home as soon as we arrived and went out of their way to make sure that we got the most out of our visit. Rosa's cooking is simply fantastic. Every meal was delicious and some of our favorite times were spent at the dinner table with Monte and Rosa as we shared stories and knew we were among friends. After we got back home, we realized that we had left a prized purchase behind, either in a taxi or in our rental car. When Monte learned of this, he did a bunch of leg work and eventually tracked our stuff down at the local car rental agency. What's more, he arranged for it to come back to Canada with another of his regular guests. This is the kind of "above and beyond" effort that you can expect at Quinta Alegria.

MAZUNTE BEACH BUNGALOW... I rented the Mazunte beach bungalow last month for a much needed three week vacation. The place is exactly as presented and is secure, private and the view cannot be beat. The location is just far enough from the main road to maintain a secluded feel, but close enough that everything you might need is within a short and easy walk. I would recommend this to anyone. It is really a special place on a very special beach.

QUINTA ALEGRIA... We spent 3 fabulous weeks at Quinta Alegria from January 3 – 24th, 2012. We weren’t really sure what to expect as this was the first time we have not gone to an all-inclusive resort in Huatulco, but this holiday was by far the best & way better than the all-inclusive resorts we have gone to in the past. As well, overall cost for our trip was about the same or even a little less than doing an all-inclusive resort. The food was, OMG, amazing! When I tell people about our holiday, I describe our cook Rosa like my Grandmother only Mexican………fabulous home cooked meals, feeds you till you burst, yummy Mexican cuisine, but if you want something Canadian like hotdogs or peanut butter, all you have to do is ask. AND I could go on forever about her guacamole……..to die for!! Sure beats the bland cold food served by the buckets full at an all inclusive. The rooms were great, each one is different so if you go with a group, you may fight over the nicest one, but they were all good with fans, air conditioning & an amazing view!! As well, even though this is a house/villa, the rooms were still cleaned daily which was great. The pool is fabulous, really it just couldn’t be bad with that amazing view & Rosa & Rolando serving you margaritas whenever you want, but for those who have concerns about the sanitary side of pools, rest assured as Rolando is extremely diligent about keeping it cleaned and testing the water & adding chemicals as needed. The owner, Monte, is a really down to earth nice guy who goes out of his way to help out his guests. He was fabulous! He was extremely helpful and went out of his way to answer any questions we had, help us with translations, help us with tours, suggestions of things to do, transportation, booking Spa appointments (they actually came to the villa & gave massages right there – awesome!!). He also took us to a couple of those “out of the way restaurants” that you would never find on your own which was a lot of fun. Most of all it was great to just hang out with Monte & share stories, he really was like one of our family. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Quinta Alegria and I highly recommend it to all my fellow Canadians & others. The worst thing about the trip was having to leave to come home & do my own cooking again! Man, I really miss Rosa!

QUINTA ALEGRIA... My husband and I along with another couple throughly enjoyed Quinta Allegria. We were greeted upon our arrival by the owner and staff. All of our needs had been taken care of in advance of our arrival. They had done grocery shopping and stocked the bar for us. All we had to do was change into our swim suits and relax. The home is very inviting. The views are spectacular. For anyone who wishes to exercise the community is a good area to run, walk or enjoy a swim in the ocean at the beach near by. Rosa was our cook for the week. She prepared three meals a day and snacks for us. We enjoyed her authentic Mexican dishes as well as she was very happy to prepare anything we requested. Monte, the owner of the home served as our on call tour guide. His willingness to help along with knowledge of the area were priceless. He saved us lots of time by directing us to local beaches, the mercado and shopping area. The home is more beautiful than the pictures. The views of the bay, breathtaking. The home is very well maintained and provided us with all of the creture comforts we desired. We have rented many homes throughout Mexico and this one is definately one we will return to. Overall a great experience and very relaxing. Stayed March 2013, traveled with friends

QUINTA ALEGRIA... Quinta Alegria is fantastic! My husband and I along with our two adult daughters (20 & 22) had an incredible time while staying at Quinta Alegria. The view of the infinity edge pool out to the ocean from the outdoor living room was breathtaking. We spent each morning leisurely drinking coffee in this tranquil beautiful setting. We have traveled to many beach resorts in Mexico on both the Caribbean and Pacific and stayed in villas, condos, all inclusive and non all inclusive hotels and feel that Quinta Alegria has the best view of anywhere we have ever stayed. We went on outings each day, but we made sure to be back at Quinta Alegria at the end of each day to see the sun set – seven days and we never missed one! We went to the beach that is walking distance of the villa twice – it was a little bit of a climb, but the beach was beautiful and the ocean very swimmable. We also visited other local beaches. Amazingly, every taxi cab fare to/from the villa was about $4 US and when we called for one they would be at the villa in 5 minutes. We didn’t opt for a cook because we love the restaurants in La Crucecita/Santa Cruz. Monte, the owner of Quinta Alegria, was a fantastic host and we really enjoyed meeting him. The the housekeeper and gardener were great as well - they made sure everything was perfect. The villa and grounds were immaculate! We are counting the days until we can stay there again. It was the perfect vacation for us - we relaxed, watched the spectacular birds and scenery, and had great family time playing games in the outdoor dining room each evening while listening to the ocean. Couldn't ask for more!
