General

Hotel Playa Mazatlan has welcomed guests into its relaxing ambience since it opened in 1955 as one of Mazatlán's first resorts. Located in quiet courtyards are 5 heated pools, 1 paired with a 4.5-meter-wide (15-ft) spa tub and bordered by a jungle rock garden with waterfall and koi pond. The hotel's long private beach frontage features oversized thatched-roof palapas for shade. A full service spa offers a range of services including sauna, massages, and facial and body treatments. A popular draw throughout Mazatlán, the hotel's Fiesta Mexicana folkloric show and buffet dinner, is presented 2-4 times weekly (depending on season) in an air-conditioned theater. A variety of other shows, along with games, contests, and movies, round out the schedule of family-friendly entertainment offered nightly at the resort.

Supervised daily outdoor activities are available free of charge for children ages 4-12 during the day. A complimentary fitness center contains cardio machines, weight machines, and free weights.

Recreation

Five heated swimming pools lie within quiet courtyards. The rectangular main pool measures 21 by 11 meters (70 by 35 ft). A jungle rock garden with waterfall and koi pond borders a 17-meter-long (56-ft) freeform pool, which is paired with a 4.5-meter-wide (15-ft) spa tub. A 14-meter-long (46-ft) oval pool is adjacent to a tall, tiered fountain, and a children's pool, steam room and sauna are also available.

Furnished with extra-large, thatched-roof palapas, the hotel's beach frontage extends 225 meters (246 yds) along the ocean, which is usually calm because of shelter provided by Deer Island. Sand and palapas extend around the hotel's south end, offering extra room for sunbathing and shaded snoozing as well as for a volleyball net.

Water sports are available at an adjacent beach and include parasailing flights, banana-boat rides, and rentals for personal watercraft, sailboats, and kayaks. Independent operators also offer scuba diving and snorkeling excursions as well as trips to Deer Island and other islands.
