“Siesta in the sun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

I have been an owner at Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay for five years.
My wife and I purchased our timeshare at the same time my late brother
and his wife. They were Mazatlan fans for 25 years.
We must have rubbed to close, because this is a vacation my
wife and look forward to every year.
If you want to be pampered and coddled, then this is the place for you.
The rooms are specious, food is good, drinks are plentiful.
Daily activities that you can participate in or not.
Plenty of chaise lounges and ample umbrellas for shade.
If the sea shore is your choice, then you can sit on the beach inside or out of a cabana.
Our favorite time of the year is late April- early May. Just before the monsoon season.
The rooms are very spacious, with one and two bedrooms.
There is a sofa in the living room that is good only for sitting. Terrible for sleeping when made into a bed.
While all rooms have a dining table, we prefer a balcony if available, otherwise the dining table is sitting in an alcove. On the balcony, there is two padded chaise lounges, that offer a great nap.
There is a kitchenette with a apartment size refrigerator, a two burner electric stove, microwave, dishes and kitchen supplies.
Maid service daily, with night turn down.
Is is so easy to return home spoiled.

Room Tip: We like building 17/18

This was our third one week stay in the last four years and upgraded to the one bedroom suite (very nice). The suite allowed one person to get up early or stay up late without bothering the other. Housekeeping was awesome! Every day there were activities to choose from, whether an adult or youngster boredom was a word not spoken. The beach stretched a couple of miles for a pleasant morning walk or jog. We opted not to buy the all inclusive meal plan because there are restaurants everywhere!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the main pool are a little more noisy.

Great hotel. Been there three times and absolutely enjoy it. It has a very Mexican feel. Rooms are quite nice. The junior suite is very nice for a family. I enjoy having a kitchenette. The pools are great as is the beach. The staff is amazing. Walk outside and you have restaurants to eat. Hop in a cab and go to town where you can shop or dine. The hotel is always clean and never crowded (exception is holy week when it's to capacity). If you can go over to Emerald Bay, the sister hotel, it's a great place to spend the day. The SPA at Emerald Bay is also amazing.

The hotel was ok, it's sister hotel Emerald Bay was nicer. I could not walk around the hotel room without my flip flops on due to the floor was so dusty. Also the week we went was Mexico's Holy week, so there were kids everywhere, we would never go again that week!! The grounds themselves were beautiful, with two pools and a swim up bar, but again with all the kids, they should have one pool for kids and one pool for adults only, that is why we went to Emerald Bay to relax, they have a Adults Only Pool!! The two restaurants on site were very good, I would recommend Cilantro's and Las Palomas was equally good for buffet. If your looking for night-life activity, there is none at this hotel. To get a lounge chair near the pool was almost impossible, people like to reserve chairs by putting towels out first thing in the morning, even though the hotel clearly states "no reserving of chairs". We even moved towels once and no one ever showed back up to get their towels - very rude! Oh and the beds, very uncomfortable, and only doubles, no queens or kings!! So overall, would not stay at this hotel again!

This was my first time at any Pueblo Bonito property. It was very Mexico in decor, which I liked. This is a large property that really spreads out, so it was a long walk to our room. The room was lovely with a nice view of the pool and ocean. This is a bit older hotel, but I liked the Mexican tiles used throughout the resort and on the stairs. The restaurant for breakfast was excellent with very attentive staff and a wide range of good foods. This property is very quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for an oceanfront room (parallel with the beach), but be prepared for a long walk as these are t...

This family friendly resort has beautiful beaches, lovely pools and very attentive and professional staff. The lifeguards were really working to keep everyone safe and the housekeeping and restaurant staff were amazing. Our rooms were immaculate and comfortable and the style is very nice and quaint. We loved the balconies, the ocean/ pool view and theaviaries . Would we come back? Absolutely ! This is a great place to relax or run,swim, and enjoy the ocean. Thank you for a very nice stay!the walk to the restaurants is very nice ,easy with aviaries and fish stream to keep you interested . It is not a hike ,just an easy stroll along the streams or the beach

Room Tip: Pool view means no street noise, lovely palapas on the beach

This was our first time at Pueblo Bonito, and we enjoyed it. It took 4 tries to get a good room, but we really liked the one we ended up with - big patio, decent view, by the "quiet" pool. It was quite a hike from the entrance, but we liked the walking. Closer to the beach! And better wifi reception. We did enjoy the beach a lot. We never used our air conditioning as it was cool enough the week we were there. All the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Ate at Cilantros the 1st night - what a fabulous setting! And that's what you're paying so much for. It's also a good place for an after-dinner drink (and the only one). Food was OK, except for the squash and shrimp soup, which was amazing! Most days we had lunch by the pool, which was good, if expensive. Went into town for dinners. It was a little farther from good restaurants than I had hoped. I wish we had gone out to Emerald Bay to the beach earlier in the week - it is so beautiful! Next time we will go there more for that gorgeous beach!

Room Tip: Unless you want to be near the "noisy" pool, get a room with 4 numbers, like 3019, which a...
