Not sure why TripAdvisor is NOT posting my rating? The reality is that Balboa Tower and Club are vacant! If you call they will take you money but there's no place to stay. I have attached an google maps airel that shows bout properties are vacant.

Wish I wouldve listened to what everyone said. I was seriously hoping that the others were right about it not being that bad. I booked through rci and called them the first day and made them move me and my family to a new place. Furniture was just old it was very worn and dirty. I didn't want to sit... More

My husband and I have stayed at Balboa Towers for the last 6 years and love it! You couldn't ask for a better location, the staff is wonderful and the price is right! They are making great progress on the remodeling which is to be done by December. Counting the days will we return!

I agree with the other users commenting about the lobby being dark, elevators too small and slow, pools are cold....but let... More

With another couple we acquired our reservations thru RCI several months ago for a 7 day stay. As time went on we keep reading reviews (neg) about the hotel. So, on our driving trip to Mazatlan we had concerns about staying in the BT and made jokes about what we should do. Upon arrival, we checked in an were overly... More

We booked this hotel online through RCI. They had it rated at 3 crowns, so we felt it would be ok, even though we were reading about the condition of the place, we decided we could put up with an older hotel, since we intended to spend our time outside. From the moment we walked into the lobby, until we... More

Ok, I'll admit, the room was definately outdated...however, my idea of a vacation involves spending as little time in the room as possible!! It was very clean, the AC worked and the shower ran hot water, what more could we need? We had the best service at the pool area and the beach area! Never had to wait for beachside... More
