- What's Included
Our OpinionThe Costa de Oro is a decent 3.5 star, not really a 4 star as some may rate it. The beach is nice and the grounds are well kept. There is also a section located across the street from the main hotel, so be careful to make sure you know which room category you are booking. This hotel can get very lively with students in March, May and June.
The hotel may need a bit of updating, but you can't beat the view from the balcony. The staff was friendly and receptive to requests. They have a currency exchange inside the hotel and there are banks across the street. We had drinks at the poolside restaurant (Happy Hour is from 1 to 2pm) and ate at the Adobe restaurant. There is a bag storage room available if you need it. We did not buy the in-room wi-fi but used the very slow wi-fi in the lobby.
Never rent chairs nor tents in front of the ocean they are thieves. Once you go to the ocean going down stairs in Costa de oro they rent chairs and tents, they even have the famous "banana" Never rent chair nor tents because they will take your money and rip you off and treaten to call the police on you. We rented 3 tents and 6 chairs and tents 6pm cause the sun was burning. The deal was we can keep them till the water touched the wall 7pm they came and took everything at 7:30 and treaten us. Yet they took our money on the spot $300.00 pesos witch is an all day rate.
We have stayed in other Mexican resort areas and payed much more for big disappointment. The Costa, to us, is a great family or large group destination in Mexico.The staff is always friendly and helpful. Other places we have been in Acapulco the staff was working for management only and the guests were "in the way". Mazatlan has much to offer in sightseeing and dinning. The Costa is located in the gold zone. It is a 3-4 dollar pulminia (cab) ride to the center of town to plaza machado which is loaded with night life and fantastic restaurants .If you do a little research before your trip and take family and or friends you will not be disappointed. Mostly, you will enjoy your stay at the Costa. If you are a snob, go to Cabo or Acapulco and stay at the mayan palace,very shinny and snooty and terrible service, but the prices are very high for your pleasure.
Pros- beach view, very clean, great location, right on the beach, snack bar, happy hour, near many thingsCons- can't swim on beach, rough water and jelly fish, pool water was HOT, tons of kids (bus loads of soccer/cheer teams)My family and I would return!
The Costa de Oro is a wonderful place to stay in Mazatlan. As previous reviews stated it is older, and this is evident. However, it is kept very clean. All of the staff at the Costa are helpful and friendly, which contributes to the high rating. The staff at the pool are outstanding, especially 'Lucy', goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is happy. The rooms are kept clean by the wonderful maid service, who also always have a smile. The location of this hotel is perfect, able to walk to many of the popular restaurants. The only complaint I would have would be the chair situation at the pool, it appears that people not staying at the hotel can come and use the pool and chairs, this makes getting a chair difficult for those staying at the hotel. Also, the one and only elevator was not working 100%, would be nice to have more than one elevator.
