Our Opinion
In a great location in the Golden Zone, the Playa Mazatlan has long been a favorite of Canadians. You can opt for the all inclusive option or just go hotel only as there are many restaurants in the area. Right next to the popular Joe's Oyster Bar.

A Mazatlan favorite! This resort offers loads of atmosphere and superb service. The hotel's 418 rooms are nestled among lush, colourful gardens and towering palm trees. Enjoy the great stretch of beach or relax poolside at one of 3 different pools. Enjoy the nearby nightlife at the various clubs and bars or partake in the Playa Mazatlan's own 'Fiesta Mexicana'!

Location: Beachfront, 10 min to downtown Mazatlan, 30 min from the airport.

Best location in Mazatlan

I’ve stayed at this hotel many times and have been very satisfied with my stay each time. This hotel is near everything walking or taxi. Central location to lots of restaurants and things to do. It also has one of the best beaches in Mazatlan with many water things to do. The beach front is set up with lots of places to sit and relax away from the vendors or right in the middle of everything. Waiters will come to you so you don’t even have to get up. Great palace to stay!

Vacation Getaway

This was a last minute change from our original trip to Cuba due to the hurricanes. The resort is beautiful, clean, in a great location and right on the beach. The people were fantastic and we had a good choice of pools/beach. Our room was great. We had an ocean view room on the main floor. It was easy access to the beach, very large room and clean. We never had any problems and enjoyed that location.The food was good depending on where you wanted to eat. The Mexican restaurant was fantastic as well as the Brazilian BBQ. We ate most mornings and lunch at the buffet which was great but we didn't care for the food at the dinner buffet. Having said that a 5 minute walk up the beach to Pancho's is a must!The staff were great and treated us so well. The atmosphere was fun and we didn't have any problems relaxing whether it be at the pool, the beach our the bar. It is definitely a family orientated resort and would recommend it for families. There is something there for everyone.

Home away from home

The Hotel Playa Mazatlan is definitely our destination of choice. We have touted it to family and friends with wonderful results. We have made friends over the years we have been going to the Playa and look forward to our return each year! Our granddaughters fell in love with Mexico and the Playa. Our son and his family are looking forward to returning! All thanks to the welcoming atmosphere at the Playa. Please keep up the good work!! Thank you Lance, Concierge Elizabeth and Raul who is an awesome ambassador for the Playa. We have to say Gracias to the reception staff, the restaurant staff and the staff who keep the hotel in immaculate shape. Rock on and see you in 2018!!

What a great way to enjoy your dinner, sitting outside on the terrace watching all the beach activity. Food was excellent, service a bit slow but hey, you're in Mexico! The hotel itself was very attractive but haven't seen the rooms.

Fantastic 4 nights in Mazatalan at the Hotel Playa Mazatlan

My husband was in Mazatalan for business and then I was fortunate to join him after his business meetings. Hotel Playa Mazatalan was absolutely beautiful. Our room was a delux room looking out onto the ocean and beach below us. The room was large and VERY comfortable. Service was truly over the top, with food choices on site exceeding all expectations. We will go back and Hotel Playa Mazatalan will be where we stay.
