This is an amazing place. I would say it is one of the absolute best places I have ever stayed in my life. It was an old, old building that was renovated by the owners and they did an incredible job. The setting - near the old part of Mazatlan up a hill and right across from the ocean, is amazing. It is quiet, peaceful, beautiful, authentic Mazatlan.
The hotel is incredible. Small, quaint, charming, tasteful - you can see for yourself from the pictures. The swimming pool isn't really super functional as it is so small but it is beautiful. We practiced yoga on the patio area facing the ocean...
There is a great restaurant. Good food. There was even a saxaphone player playing at the hotel the evening when we arrived. Good selection of books in the hotel library. Nice common areas to sit and chill and hang out.
We stayed in the cheapest room, the Alma room, which although it was nice and spacious, it was quite dark. I don't know if I would want to stay in that room again for an extended period?
The hotel is close to restaurants and very close to the main plaza in the old town. In my opinion, this is a far, far better location than the other end of town (the zona dorada - which is the touristy end). I have stayed at three other hotels in Mazatlan before over the years and this is by far the most outstanding. Last time I didn't stay here and I wish I had. The only downside is though the beach here is nice and very swimmable, the beach at the zona dorada end of town is a bit nicer.
All in all, if in Mazatlan...this is really a wonderful place....this would be an awesome location for an event/honeymoon/romantic getaway/to recuperate from life/to write a novel/to have an alternate trip to Mazatlan where you don't stay in an all inclusive and stuff yourself silly at a buffet every night...
