At some point, me and my girlfriend were the only ones on the huge beach. The bed was great to sleep in. Lovely place, honest, tasteful, discrete, and charming, run by a friendly family. Fway from the crowded beaches and loud speakers blasting music all day long. Comfortable rooms and great service, personalised and well priced. You get much more... More

From the time Ray picked us up until we left, I had a wonderful time. We were truly made to feel at home and Ray and Linda's beautiful house and garden, along with their great breakfasts, were the best part of the vacation. Two thumbs up – I definitely want to go back.

We just returned from our 8 day stay at El Sol La Vida. We had an amazing time and it was very hard to leave! The hotel itself is beautiful. We loved the location being a little outside of the action of Mazatlan, but yet close enough to drive there in 10 minutes. It is a perfect place to be... More
