Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan
- What's Included
We stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan from April 3rd - April 10th, 2017 via an RCI exchange. We had reserved a studio but were upgraded to a "1 bedroom". The rooms are older but charming and the ocean view from the 4th floor was amazing. The bedroom portion; however, was on the street side so it was a little noisy at night and with the window right by the walkway, we always had to keep the curtains shut.We did the all-inclusive meal plan as we were given three free days when we purchased four. The food was really good - especially the shrimp cocktails at Cilantro's. Angelo's was really good also but you want to make sure you bring some decent clothes/shoes as they do have a dress code.The wait staff was pleasant and, I suppose because we tipped a couple of dollars each time they brought us drinks, they continuously got stronger. Quite often they would bring drinks without us even ordering more. That being said, I wouldn't do the all-inclusive again. It's nice to leave the resort and with an exchange rate of 18 peso to the dollar, it was difficult to get our money's worth unless we stayed there all day and kept eating/drinking. So ... next time, no all-inclusive for us. The only real cons are that the bedroom had two very small beds and there was no way we would both fit into one bed so we ended up sleeping in separate beds. Since we are both fairly tall, our feet hung off the end of the bed! I also prefer the bedroom be on the ocean side so that I can hear the ocean at night instead of people walking outside my door and street traffic. The water pressure wasn't great in the showers and the living room seemed sparsely furnished for such a large room. None of these things would keep us from coming back.All in all, it was a very fun, relaxing week at the Pueblo Bonito and we look forward to visiting again in the near future!
Great hotel staff,however not very happy with the Maintance of the room.All staff very helpful and cheerful.I did not like the service we received at Cilantro restaurant the waiter was very inattentive and distracted.But regardless we had a great vacation will return to Mazatlan soon and will bring all my family.
I stayed at the Puablo Bonito Mazatlán in April 2017. I was on the AI package which I always do because I feel I usually get good value for it. This is an older hotel that is relatively clean. When we first got to our room, it smelled a little musty which I have grown to expect in older hotels. We had the maid come and fabreeze it and opened all the windows and it was fine for the rest of our stay. I am a beer guy and I like a darker (or oscura) there was no dark beer option which was a little disappointing. They had Pacifico, Corona and Tecate as options. As an all inclusive, it was a little disappointing as well having to sign for every drink, meal and even water. There was only a buffet for breakfast which was good, but there was no buffet for lunch or dinner. The food at the restaurants was very good though. The best part of this hotel was the beach very clean and swimming in the ocean spectacular. Night life at the hotel was non existent, no bars for meeting people which was disappointing, but on the upside you could take the free shuttle to Emerald Bay and they had good bars open late which honored the all inclusive. They also have Negro Modelo on tap there which is one of my favorite Mexican beers. That hotel is very sterile and up scale though which is not my style when staying in Mexico. Back the PB Maz, you are a 20 minute walk or 80 peso Polmania(open air taxi) ride to the golden zone which has plenty of night life and great restaurants. And if you like live music there is a venue almost every block. 120 pesos to old town which is a must, it is beautiful and clean and lots of very good restaurants and bars. Watching the sunset from the rooftop bar of the Posada Freeman is a must. I can have fun in Mexico no matter what and Mazatlán is my new favorite city. When I go back I think I would stay a little closer to the Golden zone as I like to walk around and bar hop, without having to worry about cabbing back to my hotel. Hotel was a little disappointing but clean and the staff was very accommodating.
Just returned from a week at this resort. The property is old and is showing heavy signs of wear and tear. The pool, the rooms and general facilities are not up to par with any modern resort. Having said that, we paid less than $250 per night for this all-inclusive resort for a family of four. We can't complain.This is probably our 7th or 8th all-inclusive resort stay in Mexico. We have stayed in newer and fancier resorts (NOW, Dreams, etc.) and not so fancy resorts. Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán is definitely middle of the road in terms of facilities and overall experience. The rooms are large and spacious but you can't escape it being just plain old and worn. Here are my reasons for giving this place 4 stars. The beach is excellent. It is perfect for small children. Second, the food at Cilantro's and the Italian restaurant were pretty good for an all-inclusive a la carte restaurant. The buffet breakfast was mediocre. The beach/pool side service was very good. Third, the staff overall was very helpful. Unlike other destinations, Mazatlan definitely has more local tourists and the city generally seems more "country" than other resort towns. There are pluses and minuses for this (many staff could not speak English but you are not constantly being hawked timeshare by English savvy salesmen). We also visited Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay and ate there one evening. Emerald Bay is definitely newer and fancier but it is too sprawling for my taste. I actually like compact resorts and PB Mazatlan is definitely compact. Also, unlike many all-inclusive resorts, there are NO activities at night (no shows, etc.). My rating is based on the relative value it offered compared with the price I paid. If I paid $400 per night for this resort, it definitely would not have gotten 4 stars. I would recommend this hotel and the all inclusive package if you can score a deal as we did.
Pueblo Bonito provides a ocean side resort that be comfortable in all measure. Is within all amenities with short bus ride to Golden Zone inner offerings, shopping,restaraunts, nite life etc. The El Centro bus will take you to old town where there be numerous stores,restaraunts, fish markets, machado and the Theatre putting on one of kind experiences-a must see! The resort gives excellent service with more than comfortable accommodations. It is near the end of the Golden Zone just before the Marina El Cid where there be boats, excursions, yachts to see & marvel. The rooms give all that would want and only short walk and on pool/ocean paradise with plenty of sand to walk, sit, enjoy, and close with fabulous sunsets/food & drinkside. Enjoy Pueblo Bonito!!!
