“Never Ever Stay Here, It's UNSANITARY”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2010

If I write my whole horror story of my stay at this hotel I would fill up a book. First day, dirty sheets and dirty duvet, after reporting this, they agreed to change the duvet, but not the sheets since according to them, they were clean, and they were NOT. The room was dirty, the bathroom was dirty, and they did not change the sheets during our whole stay. On the 3rd day, there was no water from 6 am to 2pm, and when I opened the faucet, and the shower, BLACK water came out of them, completely disgusting. The elevator worked for a while, then stopped working, or it would take you to the basement over and over where you would get trapped. The staff is just rude, and not willing to help at all, except for the people at the parking lot, they are very nice. On the last day of our stay, there was no hot water. Almost everyone in my family ended up a rash on their bodies, probably thanks to their dirty sheets.

Arrived on a Saturday. They have parking around back. There is no elevator from parking to the rooms. The staff was courteous and friendly. The rates were $50.00, or 500 pesos for a room with a view of the ocean or $40.00 for a view of the pool. Got a room with an ocean view. The room was clean and tidy. Two double beds. The air conditioner blew cold air, which was great. There was a fan in the room that helped with the heat. The bathroom was a little crowded, but manageable. The room did not have an iron, but the bellhop brought us one. The room had a balcony with a great view. You could not see anyone on the side of you which provided privacy.
This is a great hotel for budget people and it is close to the ocean. Take a pulmonia to the center and valentinos, cost is about 50 pesos.

  • Liked — Close to the ocean, the view
  • Disliked — color of the hallways

The room was spacious and clean but smelled strongly of Clorox. The room lights were about 15 watts and could not be read by. The beds were miserable. The next room was occupied by four adults and eleven ( yes,11) kids who held a barbecue outside our room with the amount of noise you'd expect. At some other time this might have been a reasonable place to stay but for us it was the wrong place at the wrong time. BTW, the price was very good.

This is our seccond stay at the DeCima and this time for 2 weeks. This is the end of week one. We come from BC, Canada and have stayed at diferent locations in Mazatlan but for value and service none compare to how we are treated at the DeCima. If there are any problems with your room etc ask to see Laura Cortez at the deesk. She addresses everything immediately. The second floor is just being renovated but it did not effect us room at all. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with kitchenette and beautiful ocean view. It is not an all inclusive hotel and it is halfway between the Plaza Olas Altas and the Golden Zone. Not so much sales pressure from the various sales people. If there are any questions feel free to email me at twicebit@hotmail.com

  • Liked — excellent service
  • Disliked — we didn't stay long enough
  • Tips/Secrets — just come to Mazatlan and enjoy

Have been to Mazatlan at least 10X ... decided to try out a hotel closer to old Maztlan, and wanted to be on the Malecon for the Carnival Parade. This place was NOT a good choice ... very, very uncomfortable beds and no amenities at all. The place was virtually empty - we were on the 3rd floor, and there was only one other room occupied for a couple of days except during the parade day, when the place was overrun with families and children (overrun being the operative word). We had friends in MZ who brought us a small refrigerator for the room -- absolutely essential for cold drinks. Manangment was not willing to discuss moving us to a room at the back, away from the street noise, even tho we were prepared to pay a little more if necessary -- could not sleep with the window open, and the air conditioner was hopeless. One night, a car alarm went off in front of the hotel at 11:00 p.m. and was not silenced until almost 5:00 a.m. If we had paid $25 per night, it would have been OK, but it was over $80. We are going back to MZ next winter and will not even consider staying at the De Cima.
