Beautiful Mazatlan, Mexico.

This was a beautiful resort in a breathtaking location. Our view was from the 16th floor with oceanfront. It was absolutely stunning. We watched the sun set over the ocean every evening. Also, as we left our room, we had a gorgeous view of the city for our doorway/entrance balcony.

Great room, location and staff

Had a wonderful room at El Moro. Large living room, 2 large beds and 2 bathrooms. Great view of city and could see and hear the surf from the 24th floor. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Had access to the adult pool which was great to avoid the noisy music and children. Spent several days at the Marina (shuttle available) or a pulmonia for 60 pesos. This was our favorite pool. Bathtub water warm and quiet. Now to the reason for the 3 star review. The food..... I have stayed at many AI resorts in Mexico (Puerto Vallarta, Huatulco and Mayan Riviera) and the food here did not match my previous experiences and was a disappointment. The only meal that was consistently good was the buffet breakfast. We were excited to try all of the a la carte restaurants and had no problem reserving any of them. They were all quite quiet.The atmosphere was pleasant in all of them but unfortunately the food was mediocre at best in every restaurant. I cannot say that I had a really good meal during the entire week. Sorry to report that.

All Inclusive resort, heart of Golden Zone

Very, very friendly staff throughout the facility.Food was okay; not spectacular. Breakfast was very good. Most buffets were so-so. Japanese restaurant was quite good.Drinks (house) were good; from bar in on-site restaurant better than the other bars.Restaurants and bar at La Marina were very good.Painting (smell) required a change in rooms. Was handled without hassle; moved to ocean-front room.

Vacation remarks

Enjoyed the resort. The only problem we had was with the inconsistency of the food. If I had had to pay for it I would have been very upset. I was told owners had options not on the menu if they weren't happy but I fail to understand how, if they can't properly cook what's on the menu, how would they handle special requests.
