A basic budget hotel
Reviewed 17 February, 2020
The Hotel Casa Danna is a basic budget hotel. It's clean and the staff are friendly. It's close to the beach, but not on it. It's located on the side of a busy road, with the breakfast restaurant looking out over the traffic. The breakfast served is just average. There is a pool but, depending on your room, you may have to walk through the parking lot to get to it. Depending on what you want, this hotel may meet your needs, but it's not luxurious in any way.
Fabulous stay at Casa Danna

I absolutely loved this property. Location was fantastic, 5 minute walk to the beach for some amazing sunrises, some rooms you can actually catch the sunrise from your balcony. It was also close to amazing restaurants, Super Che grocery store, 15-20 minute walk to either Santa Cruz or the downtown square.
This hotel is very well run, management and staff are fantastic with looking after you and your needs, and most importantly the maintenance and upkeep seems to be impeccable, from room cleaning and the condition of the building, pool area, etc .. great job by everyone. This was my third trip to Huatulco and from exploring in the past it is easy to see that some accommodation providers are using pictures that are very old and in reality everything needs updating, happy to say this place was spot on, even better in person. Pool area doesn't have a ton of loungers but during the day was rarely busy and always found a place to relax by the pool, some people have mentioned they had trouble finding shade, that is really not the case, there is basically shade if you want it all day, it just moves around with the sun, really a non issue I think.
As other reviews have mentioned there is no elevator, for me not an issue, I actually got a room on the 4th floor and did the stairs daily, good way to work off the Margaritas and gives you a nice view if looking over the pool, that said of course it you can not do stairs it might be an issue if the hotel is full and there are no other rooms available. There is a nightclub basically next door but only operates on Friday/Saturday from what I could tell, even then the building is pretty well soundproofed and you could hardly hear if from the room I had.
They have water jugs by the main lobby and in the pool area building as well so you can stay hydrated which was handy, no Ice Machine, but those are rare for the area from what I have seen.
There is no doubt in my mind I will be staying here again next time I visit the area.

We are seasoned travelers to the Huatulco area of Mexico and we stay for the winter season. This year we planned a 2 month stay at casa danna which we had to cut short because we had our money was stolen from our room. We asked hotel management for assistance in identifying whom had been in our room but they refused. The manager would not let us view the CCTV surveillance footage and there was no visible sign of forced entry to the room but our locked luggage had been slashed open in the room. We also made a report to the local police authority. We received no further assistance. It appears Huatulco has become Acapulco south.

I stayed for 2 weeks at Hotel Casa Danna and felt it was a great place to stay. My room was large and clean, had a comfortable King size bed and plenty of places to store my stuff. The room had a partial ocean view as well as a small balcony that overlooked the pool. The house keeping staff were great and kept my room spotless, and made a real effort to have my room done when I returned from my morning activities at around 1 pm. the reception staff treated me very well . always greeted me and helped me with my Spanish. There is a really nice breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant which is a good value, and delicious. the hotels location is great, It's a short walk to Santa Cruz, the marina, the beach and the main town. on the weekend the local tourists come and stay here, but I never found the hotel noisy and everyone is very considerate.
This is a locally owned Hotel, and I liked staying there because it helps support the local economy. It's not fancy, but it is clean and comfortable, the AC works great and the bathroom was clean and nicely finished.
I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone, and I would definitely stay there again. It's a great bargain.
Good budget hotel with a great location

We chose this hotel for the location and the pool, though we enjoyed the beach so much we never used the pool! The location was definitely exactly where we wanted to be. Our deluxe room was nice and large and it was great to have a small fridge. We didn't mind being on the 4th floor with no elevator - the stairs weren't bad. Room was clean and the shower had about the best water pressure I've ever experienced in Mexico. There wasn't much (if any) hot water the first night we were there, but it was better the next day. It would be a great addition to have an electric kettle to the room for coffee (just a suggestion). We're early risers and the breakfast downstairs didn't start until 8 a.m., so both mornings we went to a cafe instead (Cafe Icacos - I highly recommend it for both the coffee and great food).
