Worth the extra cost
Posted Sep 30, 2015
I stayed in numerous hotels in the Mazatlan area while working in Sinaloa. The rooms ranged from $50-$120 per night depending on the hotel. While Estrella Del Mar was the most expensive, it provided the best service and had the nicest facilities barn none. The room was beautiful and clean. The bathroom was very spacious and felt luxurious. The hotel is designed so that each room is quiet but still centrally located to other amenities (beach, pool, front desk, restaurants, etc.). The free services provided were very appreciated. In addition, the internet was much better than at the other hotels I stayed at in the Mazatlan area. The staff was very professional and kind.
This hotel provides much more of a isolated resort feel, and should be booked by people purposefully trying to get away from city center of Mazatlan. It's a small drive to the city, but you will have a very different experience staying at Estrella del Mar than in the city. I would reccommend this hotel for families or couples who want the calm of a resort, the services of a top notch hotel, with occasional access to Mazatlan.
