I have stayed at the Playa many times. It is right on the best beach in Mazatlan. The restaurant is right on the beach for breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Good music. You can have your room with garden views or beach views. The rocking chairs in the lobby are the best way to meet people and rela.

My wife and I have been going to the Hotel Playa for over 50-years. We've watched the hotel grow and improve through the years. We've never been disappointed. The hotel is owed by descendants of the same family who built the hotel in 1955. Their pride-of-ownership is reflected in their constant efforts to improve the hotel's facilities. The rooms are...

We first went to Mazatlan about 40 years ago and have stayed in several hotels there. Upon retiring 20 years ago we started taking more trips to Mazatlan and settled in at the hotel Playa.

My husband and I have visited Hotel Playa Mazatlan numerous times over the past decade. The hotel is in the Golden Zone. If you want to walk to restaurants, night clubs, shopping, etc., the location can't be beat. When you arrive at the hotel (about a 1/2 hour drive from the airport), you will love the beautiful cobblestone hill that... More
