“Great hotel in Mazatlan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

This resort used to be El Sabalos. It has been remodeled and freshened. The staff are helpful and friendly and the waiters at the pool are around but not hounding you constantly. Friends waited for us for two hours without being hasseled about having a different hotel band. Not so at their hotel ( El Cid Castilla). Waiters there were quite annoying. The beach is beautiful and more sheltered than hotels further north. Lots of shops and restaurants near.

Room Tip: Choose a room above the first floor, even though you can step out your door to the pool. The elevat...

Helpful staff and a good time during Carnival. Well positioned for beach and town with a lot of hawkers parading up and down the beach. Joe's Oyster bar is a fun place. A bit worn so it needs an overhaul to get it to decent international standards.

We got a deal at 60$US a night and at this price, I think it was worth it. Rooms are usually 100$+ and at this price, I think there are better deals around. The room was very clean, but lamps and alarm clock were broken. There was no hot water for two nights.
The pool was clean and amazing. Beach is also clean and fabulous.
Gym was hot, cheap, broken treadmills and nonfunctional equipment.
Internet connection was VERY slow.

I visited this resort in 1997 and wasn't disappointed when I returned this year. I had great memories of the room, the lobby, the pool, the beach and the service. My experience this time did not fail any memory. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spotless, the lobby was clean and quiet (and the best place to get wi-fi). I would stay there again and again!

Staff and facility were fantastic. the beach area was great with a remarkable staff to take care of you while basking in the sun. we had a double room and was enough room for the 4 of us. had 2 teenage boys and they throughly enjoyed themselves. we were within walking distance of convenient stores and lots of eating establishments. we felt very safe during the stay . the price was a steal for the enjoyment we received and the hospitality by everyone .

We stayed at the Ramada Mazatlan from Mar 5-19. We had a one bedroom King Suite
with a sofa bed unit on the 8th floor. There was a balcony with a ocean view, living room
area, small kitchen area with a coffee pot, toaster, microwave, and small sink.

The front desk people and hotel staff were always very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar on site were great for when we didn't feel like walking down the block to buy food and drinks.

The hotel itself is in a good location, an easy walk to restaurants, grocery stores, and shopping.

We had a very good stay at the Ramada again as they had great rooms, and friendly staff. This hotel does not get many reviews but we though it was very nice and would recommend to anyone.

I was puzzled why there were so few reviews of Mazatlan before I left on my vacation. I quickly found out why -- there's no one there. Tourism must be down 90%. The only people there are Mexicans because of the violence in the area. It's very sad and many hotels, shops and restaurants will be closing in the coming year.

The Ramada was a great place to stay. It's in a perfect location close to the Malecon and the Golden Zone. I know the area well and have no problem saying the Ramada has the best location in Mazatlan.

The room had two double beds and a balcony. Everything was clean and the room had A/C and a hairdryer. Everything worked and the beds were comfortable (but not soft). The pool was good but a hot tub would be nice. The area around the pool was good and you can get ice from the bar. The beach in front of the hotel is great and you can get a shaded cabana no problem, because there is no one there. I visited at the height of the tourist season and there were maybe 20 people in the hotel, most of them Mexican.

The best part of the Ramada is that it's connected to Joe's Oyster Bar. It's the best place in Mazatlan for a drink in the afternoon. There is some noice from Joe's and the bar across the street but it didn't bother us in the slightest.

The only complaint I would have is the two computers where they have free internet, they're brutally slow.
