We just returned from nine happy days at Emerald Estates at Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay. Although I have been visiting Mazatlan for thirty three years and have stayed in various hotels, condominiums and even a penthouse, this is the first time that I could comfortably entertain guests at "my place." I invited a family of five for Sunday afternoon which mandated I provide food, comfortable seating and entertainment for a range of ages from eight to seventy.
In the fabulous kitchen we had the equipment to cook a variety of dishes and complemented that with specialties of the Suite Service. The delivery truck brought a delicious pasta dish, tasty pizza, drinks, and a gorgeous and very delicious cheesecake and other desserts.
The seventy year old had a very comfortable sofa and the eight year old had a swimming pool and jacuzzi for entertainment. After swimming there were cartoons on the new television. (There's also CNN, Fox News, and HBO.) The teenagers, ages 14 & 18, practiced their English with us and used the new computer in the villa to answer their questions about the U.S. "Just where is Oklahoma?" and "How big is the Statue of Liberty?" So I vote for applause for the owner of Emerald Estates for the four new televisions and the computer with free WiFi. My IPad even worked here, as well as my Great Call Jitterbug phone. I was able to call other Jitterbug phones in the U.S. directly.
Entertaining at the villa was delightful. So were swimming, relaxing, cooking, watching movies, sleeping late, ordering dessert from Suite Services, and enjoying the beauty of this stylish, clean, quiet villa, showering in the beautiful bathroom, and easing muscle pain in the outside or indoor jacuzzi. There were lots of amenities at the adjoining spa and hotel but I couldn't bear to leave the villa.
