“Perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2010

We stayed in Esther's Room and it was very roomy and comfortable. The king size bed, upscale furniture and linens and a huge bathroom with a shower big enough for 2 or more. The room is very bright and opens up to a huge balcony overlooking the ocean and the start of the Malacon, a long walkway stretching from the centro historico, the old town of Mazatlan where we were located all the way to the zona dorado where all the resort hotels are.

We enjoyed this part of Mazatlan much more than where the resort area is. The old town has character and charm. We walked everywhere and were always greeted in a friendly manner by the many residents we encountered on our walks. there are many restaurants and attractions just in the old part to keep you busy. One of the best places to eat is in Le Sorelle, the restaurant in the Casa Licila. Also, go to the Plaza Machado and the surounding area for other good eats and entertainment in the evenings.
Conchita, the owner of the Casa Lucila, and her staff will make you feel right at home. The size of the Hotel makes this a much more personal and pampered feel to it, you think this is your home on the ocean in Mazatlan and are catered to as if it were.

Dear BCTedeBear,

Thank you for your kind words, I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed our little spot and the location to old town. We too love the character and charm that so richly decorates old town versus the Zona Dorada resort-ville. We shall be sure to keep Ester's Room on standby (I know, it's that extra-large bathroom with the walk-in shower that you liked.....) should you decide to come back and visit us again soon.

Many thanks!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Lucila. The view from our balcony was stunning. The rooms and common areas have an old world feel with modern convenience and the staff were helpful and friendly. Casa Lucila is a short walk from the beach, restaurants, convenience stores, banks with atm's and Plaza Machado and Plaza Centro. We had breakfast at the restaurant downstairs, Le Sorelle, every day we were there and were always pleased with the food and the service. We highly recommend Casa Lucila, especially if you are in the mood for more 'local' flavor than the resorts can provide.

The rooms were beautiful and clean. The location was perfect. My husband and I stayed there for our anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The view from the pool is fantastic and the service is over the top. The staff made our stay extra special. I would have loved to stay long. All the food we had at the restaurant was excellent.

We've been to Casa Lucila for only 3 nights, wish it would be 3 months. I greatly recommend this hotel for couples, but not only couples, any traveler seeking exclusivity, peace, great ocean views, great service and comfort.

The hotel itself is a destination in Mazatlan. We would not find a better restaurant, bar or cantina that would provide better views and ambiance as we could get from the patio of our room.

This is one of my favorites hotels in Mexico, only one is comparable, which is casa encantada in patzcuaro, Michoacán. You definitely have to try this hotel, you will never forget the good times spent there.

I am planning on returning in march and booking habitacion Chayito again.

down side: The internet connection never worked despite of our many attempts and the pool is only open until 11:00 pm. But once you at Casa Lucila you will not want to connect your lap top anyways.

Hi LUCRECIABORGIA83!

Thank you so much for your kind words! We work very very hard to try to ensure our guests have a great experience whilst staying with us, so when you are good enough to take the time to tell us you had a fine time, it really means a lot to our team.

We had a lot of ups and downs with the internet connection when we first opened, but since 2012, internet has been much better!

Thank you again and we hope to see you again soon!

Best,
Sophia

My husband and I just returned from Mazatlan, and stayed at Casa Lucila room #8 - Conchita. There are not even words to describe how wonderful this hotel is. Since we had never been to Mexico, we did not know what to expect, but received first class treatment the whole time we were there, the staff was amazing. Luckily we were able to meet the owners, who are a wonderful couple, on our final night there, and learned more about the history of the hotel and the city, and we already have let them know that we will try to be returning for Carnival in February if possible and if not then in March for vacation again. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone that is looking for a romantic trip or even just to get away. It is the only place we had ever been where we were sad to see it come to an end.

My boyfriend and I had been looking for months trying to find a relaxing place to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. We wanted a place on the beach, but we didn't the stress of children around. I had read an article in a travel magazine about a small boutique hotel called Casa Lucila Hotel Boutique in Mazatlan, Mexico. The magazine gave the hotel amazing reviews and it has the highest ratings of any hotel in Mazatlan. We decided to give it a try, and we are so glad we did. The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and friendly and the hotels owner was on site and very welcoming. The hotels rooms have the most awe-inspiring views of the ocean, and on the top floor of the hotel is an infinity pool where we spent many late afternoons watching the most amazing sunsets. The rooms were beautiful and extremely clean. The bathrooms were to die for, with Italian fixtures and tiles. I truly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to get away and relax. You won’t be disappointed. My boyfriend and I already have our next trip to Casa Lucila booked for Christmas. We are excited about the trip and looking forward to spending another week in this romantic hotel.
