Quaint Family Hotel

Posted Jun 18, 2016
The staff was friendly and spoke enough English to work with our bits of Spanish. The hot tub wasn't hot, but it was a fun clean, hidden side pool. The beach was immediately outside the back of the hotel, which was fun and offered a stunning view. The restaurant was so-so, except the tortillas which were awesome, the ambiance which was fun, and the waiter who was fantastic. The bedrooms all have doors with open slats, so there is no sound privacy in any of the rooms. What was set up to be the master was actually a loft situation, completely open to the living room. We'd go again!

It is a good place if you have a big group & cook

Posted Jan 26, 2016
Pros: Good place if you like to cook and eat there
Cons: They could use a make over on the rooms
Location: Good location if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of town
It was okay. Ants were present in kitchen. There has not been any unkeep, like rusty shower pipes, old couch that dips deep when you sit on it. THe cleaniing lady was great everyday with new towels and sweeping. THe beach was not good this year.

Ok but would try another hotel next time

Posted Sep 4, 2013 on Hotels
Hotel was ok but they shouldn't advertise services or amenities they don't have. They don't have a hair dryer as advertised. They don't have 24 hour reception as advertised. They don't have an iron and ironing board as advertised. I had to go ask for an iron and that's how I finally got one. Also, wifi was only available in the pool area and not inside our villa. The water you shower with is salty, I guess thats part of being a green resort. Overall It was ok but would not return.

Nice Get away

Posted May 26, 2013 on Hotels
Staff were very freindly and helpful. Better than a hotel or regular condo, had charm and character (mecixan decor, but not overdone), cozy. We don't like fancy condos, hotels or all-inclusives because they lack character and you never feel quite at home it them. Felt at home here. Right on the beach in cerritos, which is the most beautiful beach in Mazatlan. short bus ride to Zona dorado and shopping. Cleanliness of room was good, but not excellent (just fine for us, depends on your standards). The place is rustic so there are some tiles needing to be replaced, a little rust here and there, a few things that didn't work in the room,but the staff fixed them right away with out hassel. I thought the price was a bit high and so you would think they would keep the place running a little better and that they wouldn't charge you to have water in your room (little things like that are a bit annoying, but the charm of this place wins me over). The pool was clean and an excellent option for kids and if the surf happend to be a little stronger than usual. We would definitely return to El Rancho. Had a great time, loved the staff.

The hotel was just right for us; away from the crowds, no need to take the elevator down because it's one level. We had a great time the beach is the closest to villas then any other hotel in the area. The villas are very roomy and peaceful, towels are BIG, you get extra towels for the beach as well. Two full bathrooms. People are nice and helpful. The best we've ever taken.

Pros: la villa y el ambiente
Cons: claro ya lo especifique en mi reseña
Location: es un lugar muy tranquilo para familias chicas o parejas de luna de miel esta excelente
Es un hotel lejos del ruido del malecon y sobre todo muy relajante con tu pareja , si mismo la Villa es especial hasta pára 6 integrantes muy comoda como si estuvieras en tu propio departamento , accesible a la playa solo el mar si estaba muy picado es decir no te puedes bañar muy confiado , pero en general es agradeble. La cocina le falta variedad por las mañanas repiten el menu , pero tienen buen sazon lsugeriria algo de actividades en la alberca aunque es chica se pueden hacer algunos juegos.no hay nada de musica , pero ya es cuestion de cada quien . Dentro de las villas falta una pantalla en la recamara principal .
