“not what we expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2005

We just came back from Mazatlan, and we stayed at the "Quijote Inn" for 3 nights. Well after reading the reviews here we expected nice things. But well, now we are more wise...

In the hotel guide of our travel agency this hotel was rated with 5*... Well we would give it 3*....

Even in the description of the hotel it sais, that all rooms are equiped with a kitchenette. Well, all we got was a lousy fridge, that was not even working right!

Next, the A/C was so loud and noisy that we had to turn it of in the night - in order to get some sleep! But even with ours turned off, you were perfectly able to hear the neighbours loud and clear.

At the pool there was not enough beds, and there was no space to stay in the shade! The jacuzzi was so hot, that you couldn´t go in there...

A big + goes to the cleaning staff. Our maid was really nice and friendly. The room was very clean and any special request, such as extra pillows, she brought within 5 Minutes...

Well all together: We just stayed in the Hotel to sleep and spend the days with friends who stayed in the "Pueblo bonito - Emerald Bay" that was a great hotel, great rooms, great staff and every cent worth it.

What a nice place. Beautiful view, spacious, charming Mexican style accomodations. Friendly atmosphere. Nice pool. Even better than the El Cid. A beautiful place to stay in Mazatlan- you won't be disappointed.

This hotel was rated Mobil 4 start I think this may be a little high. I would say it should be rated 3 stars the accomadation is a very rustic style not the most moden but the maid does a great job Good points The staff are great and very friendly.and helpfull. only 5 floors and 67 rooms which means unlike some of the bigger hotels, you get a nice uncrowded beach spot .lovely pool and drinks served to you on the beech if required . property in the middle of the golden zone. 70 usd per night for 2 people great value . NOT SO GOOD POINTS if you want the best decor ( i.e plush lift etc then this is not the place) if you want to do a lot of cooking you only have 2 x ring hobs) Would i book / stay here again yes i would. why would i not book here agian if i wanted to do a lot of cooking or wanted 5 star treatment and did not mind paying 2 or 3 times more money. p.s great food just couple yard away casa country great evening meals

Nice hotel. Not scary. Very friendly staff. Pool was cold. Staff watched out for guests, gave good advice, didn't let them get ripped off. Close to everything we wanted to do. It's a very quiet resort, so young people and singles need to leave hotel to have fun - but it's not far to go. Good for people who want to have a quiet vacation. Very clean.
