We spent one night at La Rosa to celebrate a friend's birthday and it was just perfect! The casitas were comfy enough with a small fridge, microwave , hot plate and coffee maker. (Bring your own filters) The bed was equipped with mosquito netting which we did not need this trip. The restaurant is really a kitchen and patio but... More

Okay, one should be able to say one nice thing about a place. Here it is: it is remote. Now for the rest. Unfortunately, this is the worst place I've ever stayed. The creepy linens were dirty, tattered, and clammy. I was afraid to sleep in the place for the mosquitos and spiders. Even the toilet was a nesting ground... More

We had the beach house and were very happy with our choice, two bedrooms, two showers and pet friendly. The beach house is on the beach. The beach is about a mile of shallow beach protected by an offshore reef. The food was cheap and delicious, from the French toast to the bacon wrapped stuffed shrimp. Recommend this for a... More

Excellent location, nice people, great mariscos. Love it here! You cant beat the value, being right on the beach, and though it is "rural", you can get everything you need in the village. An endless amount of natural beauty to explore. Everyone is very helpful and friendly here.

Disappointing and not maintained. There was a dead smelly cat in the garden, mice running the rafters, a broken fan, air conditioning that barely worked, a big hole in the garden fence, big enough for a person to enter and no way to secure the back door..making for a non secure habitation. The bathroom was nice, except for the faucet... More

I live in Mazatlan and this trip north about an hour to a true sleepy fishing village for Gail's mosaic class was the perfect getaway. She picked us up in Maz and was the most accomodating hostess I have ever met! Her staff is helpful and prompt to assist. I would suggest bringing bug repellent for yourself. Gail even made... More

If you need to get away from it all, then head north 1 hour to the Las Rosa de las Barras. The sleepy bay is incredibly picturesque with a lighthouse at one end. Apparently it is safe for swimming but when we stayed for 2 nights it was cool and the seas where rough. Gail is incredibly hard working, having... More

Five gringas badly in need of some R&R arrive frazzled and exhausted in Mazatlan. We're picked up at the airport by the lovely Gail Blackburn, owner of La Rosa. From there on out, it's nothing but delightful. Food provided by the small restaurant attached to the resort by the fabulous Yudith, dishes done for us every day, massages and pedicures,... More

This hidden treasure is so amazing. The beach is absolutely gorgeous. The hospitality was the best and the food was outstanding! Fresh fish that comes in each day, it doesn't get any better! Great little Casitas that were so comfortable and peaceful. A wonderful place to hike, bird watch, seek out the petroglyphs close by or just relax and read.... More

Had a wonderful, relaxing week at La Rosa. All of the cabanas are unique, each carefully crafted from scratch by owner Gail. Gail has put her heart and soul into this place and it shows. Nothing fancy, but perfect if you want a nice relaxing vacation in a tiny fishing village with wonderfully friendly and welcoming locals. Every day we... More
