“Quiet and restful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

We have stayed at other Mayan Group properties in Cancun, Nuevo Vallarta and Acapulco, but this was our first visit to Mazatlan. The resort is very small compared to other Mayan properties, but this made it easier to get around and also easier to meet other guests. The staff are helpful and welcoming. Rooms are spacious and comfortable and clean. The resort is outside the main tourist area, but it is easy to take public transportation anywhere you want to go: the new mall, grocery stores, the Malecon or the Centro Historico. The beach is wide and clean and tranquil.
The gym is very small but adequate for the number of people using it. There is no spa but an excellent massage therapist on site.
The food at the resort is very good, but better prices and more variety can be had by heaidng into the Centro Historico or the Golden Zone, or just going across the street or down the street to some of the smaller taquerias or restaurants frequented by Mexicans and visitors alike.
My biggest complaint is the lack of Wifi in the rooms as a standard feature: you pay 90 dollars a week for unlimited access, which seems excessive.

We have been staying at the Mayan Palace Mazatlan for two weeks. We truly are wishing that we need not leave this place because it has been very relaxing with the option of keeping busy. There are so many choices for activities. The Super Bowl was a BLAST. The staff here know how to keep you involved. We did pool aerobics classes with Marcella and Marco. Not only was it a work out but it was fun and they always stayed behind after the class and took their time to talk to us.The activities staff really try to make your vacation complete. It becomes a home away from home. The cooking class was amazing! I will be definitely trying the recipes at home. The pool- side waiter, Brandon is very friendly and energetic. The towel girl every day knew how many towels we needed to check out without being told. The activities team and staff at the Mayan Palace really deserve an HUGE APPLAUSE!

We spent 7 wonderful days here in January and every day was in the eighties.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and ours faced the pool and the ocean. There are many different room options but we chose one with a master bed room (King sized bed) with one other small bedroom. The couch in the living room also folded out into a bed. The kitchen had a frig, stove, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, dishes, silverware, etc.

The pool has a heated and unheated side. Waiters serve food and drinks and towels are provided. Pool activities (games, aerobics) start in the late morning and run all afternoon

The beach has an excellent sandy beach and all the thatched roof cabanas are for hotel guests.

The food and drink prices are good for the U.S. but high for Mexico. There are many fine Restaurants in Mazatlan that are cheaper and better - you need to visit some of those on your visit.

There is a bar, game room, gift shop, small store, etc.

Room Tip: Book a room with a pool and ocean view.

Our resent stay at Mayan Palace Mazatlan was wonderful. The grounds and property are well-maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. We enjoyed sitting at the pool enjoying the warm weather and sunshine. The activities staff provided fun and even a pool aerobics class. Marcella and Marco were pleasant and engaging. We thoroughly enjoyed our week. Also, the News Eve Party was great and the best part was we did not have to leave the property!

We were greeted by warm weather, warm smiles, and warm waters. If that sounds enjoyable to you, then the Mayan Palace is the place to call home while staying in Mazatlan.

This property is part of the Mayan Palace properties. www.mayanpalace.com

Upon arrival, we received a complimentary upgrade from a studio to a 1 bedroom suite in the sea garden hotel. I was not terribly impressed with the decor at the sea garden, which was accompanied by a slightly musty smell. However our view of the ocean from our fifth floor accommodation was relaxing for myself and my girlfriend. Also, we understand that the Sea Garden Hotel will be receiving a makeover fairly soon, so any complaints that I have about their decor will soon be addressed.

Our last night at the property, we moved to a seventh floor studio with a city view. We enjoyed the decor and the large balcony doors, which allowed the warm breeze to fill the room.

We dined in the restaurant on premises, which we both found to be above average service and cuisine. We both enjoyed the chipotle shrimp dinner.

First of all, I don't understand why we have to wait until 5 p.m. to have the room if the room has to be checked out at 10 a.m. 7 hours of cleaning and preparing for a hotel is not acceptable.
Secondly, as the receiption hall is reconstructing, all the check-in and check-out services are moved to the hall of one building. We were waiting there for our room for one and half hour without any seat or water or air-conditioner. If the manager knows that the reception capacity would decrease because of that, stop reveiving bookings.
The room werent served for two days until we called them.
Please change the situation ASAP.

I had another great stay at the resort. Most years i stay in the Sea Garden and it is my favorite. I visit in the slow time of year in Sept so this year they let me stay 4 weeks in the Mayan Palace at no extra cost to try it out and account of upgrades going on at the Sea garden. Great ocean view, really good food at the restaurant.The gym is being up graded this year so i will be excited to see what new equipment we get when i visit in 2014. What makes the Mayan Palace / Sea garden a top pick for me other than the nice condos and gorgeous property is all the hard working staff running the place. You can have nice buildings and grounds but what makes or breaks a place for me is the people running the place. This place has the most friendly staff around !!Sea Garden and Mayan Palace in Mazatlan is my top pick!
