- What's Included
Location: Beachfront, 30 minutes from Rafael Buelna International Airport, 6 kilometers to downtown Mazatlan.
We were in Mazatlan for the day (off a cruise ship) and ended up at this location for lunch. The food was good, the drinks were better and the location was great...on the beach! (actually, the chips and guacamole is amazing!) We were traveling with someone who needed a restroom with handicap accessibility and this worked fine, although a bit tight.
Hello.. spent 8 days here in February 2017. Love this hotel! This is the 3rd time we stayed there, and our favorite place to stay. Best of all, the location is great. Beautiful beach, and close to a lot of great restaurants.This was the first time that breakfast was included, which was really nice. Staff were excellent, and even though the "American breakfast" was the only thing included in the free breakfast, they did let us improvise a bit.Our room was on the 3rd floor, beautiful view from the balcony, overlooking the ocean. The rooms looked new. 2 beds, kitchenette. Very nice and clean. The safety deposit boxes are still at the front desk, but easily accessible.Overall, everyone that worked there was super friendly. Loved our room, would definitely go back.
The other reviews here — including my own from 2010 — will extoll the various virtues of the Las Flores, but you may have missed the fact about a wifi fee being imposed at some point over the past couple of years. Unless I'm mistaken, most hotels in Mazatlan provide free internet, and certainly the Las Flores used to do so too. (The last time I was charged a fee for internet access was at the El Cid Castilla.) Let's also be clear about the cost. In Mazatlan, you can buy a breakfast for $25 pesos. A charge of $40 pesos for 24 hours of internet access is not reasonable. A 20% discount applies only if you stay for two weeks, so seven days of internet access here will cost you $280 pesos. Do not assume that once you pay, you'll be able to get on the internet using your computer, your spouse's smart phone and your kid's tablet. The login sticks to one device. (I could not find a way to release the credentials and there is no accompanying tech support to help you troubleshoot.)In terms of what other reviewers have already said, yes, the Las Flores is conveniently located and is extremely close to the beach, but yes, it's also very noisy around here into the wee hours of the morning. And yes, the resort caters to cruise ship passengers so you may find it very busy three days out of the week (currently Monday, Wednesday and Thursday). Our package included an American style breakfast every day and it was consistently very good but we did not eat at the restaurant otherwise. (I have a detailed rundown of our recent stay on my blog at boromach.blogspot.com if you're interested.)
My always clean and comfortable room was a pleasure. I prepared breakfasts in the kitchenette and ate on my balcony overlooking one of the nicest beaches and three islands. One must ask for chairs for the balcony. I often had a glass of wine, glad that I had packed my picnicking wine glass, and watched the daily glorious sunsets. The front desk is warm, friendly and they quickly respond and quickly assist.the location is good with good restaurants and buses and, taxis nearby. In 15 minutes I was in the Old Town. Mega Supermarket is less than a mile's walk. It has everything for food preparation.As an older woman, traveling alone, I always felt safe, day and night. The local people are warm, friendly and helpful.A caveat. Las Flores no longer has a working gym although it continues to be advertised on their website. Plus its pool, like other hotel pools, is not heated. Their restaurant is poor.`Do bring earplugs. On the weekends there is competing music in the streets below that is played late into the night.
Stopped here to use the pool and get lunch. The facilities are beautiful and well maintained. An attendant helped us with everything from towels to lunch and was wonderful. The food was inexpensive, especially for a hotel restaurant, and delicious. The portions were huge. We had a great day and are thinking of coming back for a longer stay.
