Costa de Oro is like your favorite old shoe….somewhat worn & scruffy around the edges but oh so comfortable and easy to slip on.
As other reviewers note, the staff makes the place. Most have been there for many, many years and all will go out of their way to smooth out any rough spots. And let’s face it, this is Mexico, where sometimes things do break and can’t be instantly repaired, or language difficulties present some sort of barrier that you will need help overcoming.
We’ve been coming to Costa de Oro for about 6 years now since taking over an unwanted time-share, normally in early June when the weather is already pushing into summer’s heat & humidity and both the pool & ocean are comfortably warm on our old bones. Summer is a quiet time in Mazatlan, with most of the snowbirds having flown back north, and during the weekdays we have the pool area almost to ourselves. Weekends are much busier as Mexican families come in for a short 2 or 3 day holiday.
Physically speaking things are kept in good repair and generally speaking everything works fine, although we noted this year they have pretty much given up on the extra cost in-room wi-fi, which never really operated properly. I believe the system is a concession installed and maintained by some outside vendor and while it is still in place they now have free wi-fi in the lobby and recommend you not pay for in-room service before actually testing it in your room.
Bottom line, this is a solid “very good” resort hotel, comfortable and friendly. It has some years on it and this shows in a cosmetic sense, but everything is kept clean, the beds are comfortable, and the staff is outstanding. Food in the restaurant is quite good and there are many alternative eateries within a short distance. And the price is right.
