“This is definitely a Gold Crown Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2006

I have just returned from Mazatlan and stayed at this great resort. It lives up to its rating in every way.
The accommodation was extremey comfortable and the room well appointed.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Angelo's restaurant (not cheap) is elegant and serves great food.
The grounds are beautiful with abundant tropical vegetation, fish ponds and flamingo's all set between the 2 beautiful pools.
It is well situated along the "hotel strip" and within easy access to the town by bus or taxi. I would certainly stay there again.

My wife and I stayed at the Pueblo Bonito for 5 days in Feb 2006. In my opinion, this was the nicest hotel I saw in Mazatlan. Not glitzy, but if you like a Mexican style accomodation, it's terrific. Our room had a sitting area, kitchette, bedroom, and balcony, with a great view of the ocean and the sunset. Well staffed and well kept-up.

The beach at the Pueblo Bonito is much quieter than most of the strip because it's at the end. The pools are really nice too. The restaurant was good but not great; we mostly ate breakfast there which was good. There is a really nice bar and you can eat there too.

While I didn't think all that much of Mazatlan itself as a destination, if you are going there, I would highly recommend this hotel.

Exchanged into this resort in Feb 2006. Room 4012. This is a junior suite with 2 queen beds, and a small sitting area. The hotel offers a turn down service at night which is a nice touch. The balcony looked over the smaller of the 2 pools and there were lovely palm trees as well. But they are getting very tall and did partially block our view of the ocean. The unit included a stove top, ice box, and all the normal ammenties for a kitchenette. There was a TV but without ample channels in english to view any of the Olympics!

We didn't eat in any restaurant on site but did enjoy happy hour occasionally with is from 4-5 PM.

The staff is very helpful and friendly and checkin and checkout was speedy and professional. We tried Mary's Hamburgers for the first time and enjoyed it. You must order the onion rings! Heathers was good one night but not so good the next. Chillis Peppers was fab each time we were there.

There was fireworks at or very near the resort on two occasions (Thursday and Saturday).

The arctitecutre of the Pueblo Bonito is such that the outside view of the units is interesting and not sterile as you find with many resorts. However, the location of the elevators and long walkways may not be suitable for everyone.

The resort is away from the 'action' of the cental golden zone but an easy walk to many restaurants which offer a variety of menu items and sure to please everyone.

This resort is one I would like to return to one day. I expect it will be as well maintained when I do.

Stayed here with my friend Feb 19-25. It is a nice place, and I chose it based on reviews I found on this site. We are both in our late 20's and go on a trip together annually.

Upon arrival, I was impressed. Great room, top floor (4th) with ocean view. Plenty of room for the 2 of us, fridge, microwave, etc. First night (Sunday) we were starving and had dinner at a nearby restaurant, La Costa Marinera. It was so lively!! Mariachis singing, lots of people, we felt like we really arrived in true Mexico! Food was excellent!

Then Monday came along and it was like everyone had left town. Much different atmosphere. We came to find out that most travelers in our hotel arrive on Mondays and leave on Mondays due to timeshare vacation times--so Sunday nights can be rowdy as everyone is ending their vacations.

Monday we took the bus for 4 pesos to the grocery store, Gigante, and got some food for the week. That was fun! Riding the Mexcian bus is an experience and so cheap! I am not sure why anyone would pay so much for a taxi when the bus can get you there just the same. Then we went to the Mercado--saw lots of fish piled up, pigs heads, fruits, etc.

Tuesday we went on the timeshare presentation at Emerald Bay and it was so worth it!! You must be at least 28 years old, female & single, or married couples together to qualify. $200 food and beverage credit for the week with no obligations--just go there, they feed you a good breakfast buffet, try to get you to buy, give a tour of the property (which is amazing!). We said no thanks, and then enjoyed the day at the pool--which is unlike any other I have ever seen. It took about 2 hours of our time, but do it early in the week, and then enjoy lots of food and drinks by the pool on them :)

By the way,Emerald Bay's drinks are so much better and less expensive than P.B. Mazatlan's! The drinks are 38 pesos at E.B. and really good. Later in the week we had drinks at the PB Mazatlan pool--they were 60 pesos, and nowhere near as good. I have no idea why there is a difference--I would expect it to be opposite because E.B. is such a nice place--so it did not make it a tough decision as to which pool we referred to relax near.

Wednesday we went to the hotel's Pool Party. It was so lame! Thank goodness we did not have to pay for that since we had the $200 credit--it was definitely not worth the $19 each. We thought it would be fun with games, fireworks, but we left after an hour because we could see it was just sadly being dragged out with kids doing hula hoop contests. Maybe good for families, but not 20-somethings like us.

Had dinner one night at La Paraje, The Place one night. It is down the street from the hotel. I would advise against that--not very good. Chili's Pepper was excellent, however...highly recommend that one.

Went to Joe's Oyster Bar on Thursday night--not that impressed. Friday night went to Senor Frogs--not many people there, but we had a good time. The waiter said a good party goes on there when the cruise passengers come in on Wednesday mornings!

Overall, I had a very nice time relaxing, I worked out daily in the gym, watched the waves, watched some good movies on HBO in the room. I really enjoyed that we could take the free shuttle to Emerald Bay and enjoy their facilities, which are far superior. But it is definitely a place for families or older couples. We don't plan on returning to Mazatlan. But I was impressed with Pueblo Bonito resorts.

I do recommend the resort--I feel refreshed, I was not looking for a big party, so it was perfect.

This is a great resort. The pools are plenty large for all the guest, there is a great restraunt on the beach in the resort that is priced well and has a large menu. We never once saw the maid clean our room but it was always in tip top shape. We would definatley stay here again! We used the gym and that was great, it has plenty of machines and a trainer on duty whenever open. This resort has a perfect location. You can walk to plenty of restraunts or shops on the street or beach. We Loved it here!

Stayed at this property from Jan 8-11. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, and the accomodations. We upgraded from a junior suite and the only comment about the room was that our bedroom was away from the water, so we missed the sounds of the ocean during the evening. However, the junior suites have a different configuration, and are better for that purpose. We visited with friends who have been time-share owners for nine years and it was their glowing comments that caused us to visit. We will be back again at least once this year and have plans for another trip in January. Both restaurants were very good, and are highlt rated by reviewers that frequent the Pueblo Bonito and Mazatlan.

We spent several hours out the the Emerald Bay property, and it is a beautiful location, but somewhat isolated from the city. Once they have their golf course completed, it will be a highly sought after property. They are currently building their Puerto Vallarta resort next to the four season site in Nuevo Vallarta, which is again north of the airport and a distance from the city. Prior to this visit, Mazatlan was not in our top two locations, but it certainly is now!

We had a family reunion over Christmas of 2005.
The junior suites had mini-refrigerators and
microwaves along with a very well-stocked
kitchen. The hotel in a quieter part of town on the main bus route (the fare was 40 cents into
the center of town).
The balconies were large enough to accomodate
a table and three chairs. The tropical gardens
were inviting and the beach was wide and immaculate.
We reserved a palapa in the morning and enjoyed
the beach every day.
The hotel is well maintained. A great restaurant
within walking distance is La Costa Marinera.
