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.

Overview
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.

Basic but has the essentials

Basic option right on the beach, one of the best beach set up's in the Golden Zone. Good customer service. Beds were hard and water pressure not great. They offer conversions from dollars to pesos but the rate was not good.

great place to stay, very clean. Everyone is super friendly!

Playa Mazatlan is a great location with one of the best beaches. It is very clean with the staff being friendly and very helpful. Alejandro in the gym was just the nicest person. We loved talking to him and he always had a smile for everyone. Martin, one of the waite staff was one of the best. He is very attentive to your every need. All of the staff was great. They felt like family by the time we left! This was our second time there and would definitely return.

Stayed here for 10 days in February. Location is fantastic, beach is the best and service is friendly. Would stay here again but would not bother with the all-inclusive as there are elements that are restricting...ie no bottled water before 11AM no cappuccino before 11AM and no booze before 11AM. Bottled beer is extra as well. Food is good but not excellent. So... great place; rooms are dated but clean and there are stores close by to purchase cheaper alcohol to take to the beach. Restaurants in Mazatlan are plentiful and most are reasonably priced. We will be back!

Pleasant and friendly resort

Spent three weeks at the hotel In January/February 2017. My overall assessment was positive. It is not a luxury property and the atmosphere is, therefore, more relaxed than at a 5-star hotel.The room was comfortable - fair size, comfy bed, clean, with daily thorough cleaning. I had booked an ocean view room which had access to a balcony with basic furniture.The major negative which spoiled my stay was the noise during the night. An adjacent property had loud, and I mean really loud, music every night. On Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, the music started around 10 PM and did not stop until 4 AM. I had to wear ear plugs to alleviate the effect of that infernal sound. I was told that ocean-view rooms were the worst in the hotel but could not obtain a room reassignment in view of the fact I had paid for an ocean-view one.Turning to the other facilities, they were more than adequate: beach and pool loungers in sufficient numbers, clean and sufficiently large pools. Surprisingly there is no bar, one of the dining room doubles up as a bar.I had an all-inclusive plan. The food in the main dining room buffet was of very poor quality, as you expect in 3-star Mexican hotels. There were two or three other hotel restaurants that had much better food.In sum, I would recommend this hotel if you want a good non-luxury hotel and would very strongly advise not booking an ocean-view room if you want to have quiet nights.

So many lovely accommodations in Mazatlan it can be hard to choose, but when you consider your primary reasons for going there are walks on the beach and swimming in the ocean, and the incredible and abundant seafood, the Playa Mazatlan goes to the top. Whether you choose to limit your trip to what the Zona Dorada has to offer or if you decide to walk all the way to the open market in city center and/or get on a bus or in a cab and take a tour to Rock Island or a nearby mountain-top, if the Playa Mazatlan is your home base on your trip, you can do it all from there, just steps from swimming and incredible sunsets itself. There's no place in the world like Mazatlan!!
