Location: Alta Mira is basically a cluster of individual bungalows perched on the side of a hill overlooking the beach in Mazunte. To drive to the hotel, you turn off the main road and go up a very steep driveway to reach the reception area, which is at the top of the hill above all the bungalows. On foot, there...

I have just returned of one of the most amazing time of my life..... Mazunte was exactly as i expected. I travelled with another 3 friends; we took a flight to Huatulco and then i went by taxi to Mazunte. The taxi driver left us at San Agustinillo (a town before Mazunte) and we couldnt find a place there, and...

The Alta Mira Bungalows are cute, have great views, and are a good deal. The staff is friendly. The bungalows, which may just be the nature of these style accomodations, are very damp. The sheets are damp, which I find hard to sleep with. There are also lots of critters, we had a frog in ours. I would still come...

We called them several times since there's no possibility to book it through internet , but at the end we did it !!!. The people was highy friendly and kind and the bungalows have a super panoramic terrace with amazing views of the beach. The food , homemade , was wonderful (i.e. guacamole ) . I'd highly suggested the Bungalows...

I arrived in Mazunte having been staying at nearby Playa Ventanilla. The Alta Mira bungalows are simple, clean and unpretentious and they are still the best in the area. The prices for meals and drinks are about double that of the beach or in town, but that is always the way in hotels or hostels in my experience. It is...

having read several reviews about the Altamire, it seems to confirm that we are not only people there who have been treated with extreme hostility. Nothing that was agreed previously, worked out. For the last night, they even trasferred us to the family's other hotel in a nearly town as it seemed that more important people arrived. It did not...

Just back from a trip to Oaxaca. We had high hopes for our 3-day stay at the Alta Mira Bungalows, having heard great reviews from various friends, but sadly were disappointed with our experience. Yes - the rooms up high have incredible views, and you can wake every morning to the sunrise streaming through the window. But the accomodations are...

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Alta Mira in December of 2003 and I came away with mixed feelings about the place. We had reserved a room months ahead and had the confirmation with us. On our arrival, the staff were much more interested in wanting to see the proof of our reservation than they were in...
