“Comfortable but more pricey than other places”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2006

Comfortable hotel along the main drag. Good sized pool which the million kids used at all times. The decent A/C sure was a relief from the horrible sun, heat, and humidity during my stay. My room had a balcony--like most that have a view of the ocean. 800 pesos per night was a little steeper than other hotels in the near vicinity. Green Sabalo bus goes to the area where the night action takes place & also where I went parasailing (at my own risk) and later borrowed the life jacket to go into the strong currents of the ocean. The restaurant connected to the hotel's lobby had good breakfasts, "OK" lunches & dinners. Next time I go to Mazatlan (which WON'T be in or near July), I'll look for a cheaper alternative to this pricey but comfortable hotel.

  • Liked — Very easy to reserve room via the hotel's website & email communication
  • Disliked — Too pricey, pool wasn't the most cleanest/inviting place to cool off
  • Tips/Secrets — July's heat & humidity were near unbearable!!
  • Stayed July 2006, traveled solo

This quaint hotel is nothing fancy. Friendly staff, clean rooms and a pool that's cleaned daily is what has brought us to this hotel time and time again. Great ocean views and within walking distance of Senor Frogs (you can get wasted and not have to worry about driving), the aquarium and the Plaza Ley supermarket. We have been staying at Sands Hotel for the past 20 years and will keep staying there. The restaurant has had several owners some good and some bad. However this is a nice hotel for the money.
