The best part of this hotel is the staff, they are friendly and helpful.

However the hotel lacks maintenance. Some of the curtains are tearing a part, the painting on slider of the pool is washing off. There are a few cracks on the shower.

The pool area it is very crowded, at a times there is not even room to walk between each chair, and there are not enough umbrellas, you will see people trying to grab one from somebody else.

We stayed in a jr. Suite in the second floor, is big with two double beds and a couch. It has a balcony which is not private, it is a big open space for everybody in that section of the hotel, so remember to lock your room and don't leave stuff out for very long time. But it will work out very good if you are there with a big group with multiple rooms that want to share some space.

It has what it could be a good gym but the schedule hours are horrible on Saturday it will close at noon and all day Sunday.

About the bedroom, there are a few differences between each other in the same category room, in some you will find a coffee pot and a safe but not in all of them, so check for what you need and compare between rooms if you can.

The location is just fine, there are a few restaurants two blocks away.

We stayed at Royal Villas in Oct. 2011. Everything from soup to nuts (as they say) was great! The staff were exceptional, friendly and helpful, what else can you ask for. If my wife and I ever return to Mazatlan, Royal Villas will be the first consideration on the list. From their day trips to Copala and Concordia to riding the Hobie Cat over to the island, it's just what you'd envision your holiday to be. 2 thumbs up! Thank you Royal Villas.

I went here with my mom to celebrate graduating college. I am so glad that we chose to stay at this resort. The staff were all very friendly and more than willing to help. They were able to make suggestions on good places to go and things to do. I cannot say enough good things about them. The rooms were clean, the views were great! It was also in a good location and was right on the beach! The section of the beach it was on was the cleanest in the area and had no jellyfish (unlike the other areas). I look forward to visiting again ASAP!

Went to mazatland Nov 30 and stayed next to the royal villas. One day went over to the royal villas walked right in ( no one around) got on the elevator to the top floor went down the stairs to see where the maids were. On the 10th floor 2 maid carts in front of rooms doors open and no one there. Could have walked right in rooms and taken things , just like what happened to us last year when we had 2 cameras and 2 rings stolen out of our suitcases.

I thought I had written a review for this hotel but I was mistaken. We visited here a couple of years ago and still talk about the good time we had. The food was fantastic! The pool and beach area were spectacular. I'm not sure what it is like now for safety but a couple of months after we left it started to get alittle touchy and I believe on the not so safe place to travel scale. I certainly hope that has improved. My wife and I felt comfortable walking anywhere in Mazatlan. We went downtown to the market and walked for miles. The staff at Royal Villas were very nice and accommodating. The rooms were kept very clean as well.

We certainly hope to return.

We one a timeshare here and it was another great stay. We stayed for two weeks and it was really hard to leave. We were able to get a two bedroom unit with an ocean front patio. The room was big and comfortable. The view great. The staff was very attentive and when we had a couple of items to fix they were right on it.

My sister had left some items in the room when we checked out and when she called them they had her items and offered to send them back. Great service.

The location is perfect, in the middle of the Gold Zone and right on the beach. The pool is nice and wasn't too crowded.

Already planning on going back next year.

Room Tip: Try and get a room closer to the beach, not towards the street.
