My husband and I have stayed at PB Mazatlan at least 6 times and we are going back again later this year. The hotel is in an ideal location - at the end of the Golden Zone so you don't get the noise, congestion and crowded beaches of that area but you are still close to everything. We never do the all inclusive because we have some favorite restaurants in the city but the hotel food is excellent (the beach front palapa restaurant has a great atmosphere and food) and we eat there at least 3-4 times on our trips. If you like ostentatious hotels (think the Vegas version of a Roman hotel) stay at PB Emerald Bay (it's huge sprawling, over the top, lots of marble and no beach). But if you like Hacienda architecture and want to be in a place that is and feels and looks Mexican, PB Mazatlan is for you. The staff is incredibly attentive, the resort is always impeccably clean and you can opt to stay on the side of the resort with the non-kid pool if you prefer. We have stayed at La Playa (old historic hotel in the Golden Zone), too. It's very pretty but the food is mediocre, it's in the middle of a congested area and you have to push a button on the sinks for purified water (PB Mazatlan is plumbed for purified water so there is never a problem and you never have to think about this issue). We always stay in a junior suite which is a great size. We have found very good deals by checking regularly about two months before we intend to go. The resort pricing is really strange. You'll find, with few exceptions (i.e. Christmas mostly), that the price for a particular size room is the same price for months and months on end and then, suddenly, the price will change to a single price for months and months. It almost seems (on the PB website) there is only one price the hotel can apply at any one time. So, it pays to check frequently as your desired travel date approaches. The junior suites can range from $93/night-$185 (non all inclusive). We can usually get a rate of $93-$110/night if we are diligent about checking. The area beyond the hotel toward Nuevo Mazatlan is being built up and so you can find a Subway and coffee places like Starbuck's (Rico's - very good) nearby. El Paraje is a great place to get a great lobster dinner and it's a block away. We take the buses to Old Mazatlan (try El Topolo there) and to the Malecon to run along the water. Go to Gimnasio Be Fit, an excellent gym a block away (spinning classes, weights, machines, other cardio classes). My only criticism of the hotel is that internet is not free and only available in the business center so if you need the internet, you have to use the business center (you can hook up your laptop or use their desktops) and pay for it. They'll tell you there is wifi in the public areas but it's weak and sporadic at best and more frustrating than anything else. However, this is a small price to pay for what is, in my opinion, the best hotel in Mazatlan.
