3/5 Okay

This was by far the worst all inclusive that I have stayed at. With the exception of Francisco who helped us out in the pool area, and Josue who was one of the servers- the majority of the staff was rude. I chose this hotel based on reviews, but obviously I should have read the negative ones. The rooms did not have a fridge, the beds were on the smaller side, and we were charged for a drink my husband spilled. They refused to change the sheets until we went and paid. Then they brought sheets but never put them on. LOL. Be warned, they do not take credit/debit cards. I was told there was an ATM on property, but there is not. They also do not include the covid test, whereas other competitors do. The beach is nice, and we always found a spot to sit, but there are bands playing all day. If you don't mind multiple bands playing different songs all day- this is for you. The worst part was being in a room close to Joe's Oyster Bar. They played music until 4 am from Friday to Sunday. Some positives: 1. There are several nice pools, and the kids really enjoyed them. 2. The food was decent. 3.They have dinner shows daily. My kids loved the Disney show. 4. There are snacks available all day, so my picky eaters never suffered. 5. Hotel is located near everything and you can grab a pulmonia right outside. Conclusion- Mazatlan is nice. There is a lot to do and see. I'll be back, but to another hotel.

The only great service we got is from the waitress at the buffet.. please read this.. If you get the package ALL INCLUDED..well, not everything is included. it's a lie..this is what you will expect. 07/12/2021 1- Before you get to the city driving enjoy the rates of the 4 pay tolls hiway.(casetas de cobro). Coming and going back, almost $100 dollars coming and $100 dollars going back.. 😦🚗🛣️ the road it's a throw up.🤮 2-The hotel main road is under construction so good luck getting a safe parking. You will need to walk some to the hotel, Hotel personal will help carry your loagage. And help you park you car. Rooms are ok. Clean and comfortable. No microwave, no cooler.. no coffe maker. you will get a 100 pesos fee per day if you want a microwave in the room. 3-If you expect a lot of sea food on the hotel restaurant...☹️ you are wrong. There is a buffet restaurant that offers food just like any other buffet.. The other speciality 3 restaurants need to be by reservation 8am-11am only. With the choose of only one speciality restaurant per day.. I noticed that the alcoholic drinks are not that strong..🤔. Not sure if it's real alcohol. And I hope don't end up in the hospital for adulterated liquor consuming. (I don't need proof of that).. I'm doing the test by myself.. 4-While you are on the beach,, 1000s of gift vendors will ask you to buy's annoying..I understand that that's their way of support food to the table.. But its my vacation..
