“Great Time at the Mariana May 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Karyl and I had an excellent Holiday in Mazatlan and the hosts and staff of the Mariana helped make it that way. Verneen and Alfredo made the Mariana a second home to us from everything to driving us to get our initial groceries (cerveza's), to their staff that took care of our every need. Perfect location, 100ft to the beach, turn left or right on the beach and you will find comfort, miles of walking in beauty and plenty of ways to spend you days.

Thanks you Mariana Beach Apartments and Hotel, we will see you soon.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

We stayed there from April 20th - 27th and the place was wonderful.
All the staff really made things welcoming and pleasant and Verneen and Alfredo, the owners, were lovely. Very helpful with information and directions when needed and even invited us to a play reading with them on the last night of our stay. Our apartment was a generous size and clean. They had forewarned us in their website and during email correspondence the place is very typically Mexican so don't expect 5 star accommodations, but we felt they have undersold their space as we found it to be great. Having that kind of staff/owners is what really makes a vacation relaxing and stress free. Good job and thanks again.

Room Tip: We stayed in #19 which has windows on 3 sides so a nice view towards the beach from the living room...

Stayed here march 2 - 16. Been home 2 days and already miss it.. stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment. it was great, with a living room and a full kitchen and a seperate bedroom. There was a couch in my room that was cursed as it MADE me take a nap every time i sat on it(lol). the staff were wonderful and fun and helpfull. i will be coming back here again. everyone here makes you feel at home, from the owner, to the staff and the other guest.

The owners Verneen and Alfredo truly make you feel like welcomed guests in their home. One evening during our stay, most of the Mariana guests went to a baseball game together--all organized by Vern. It was a really fun evening, despite the fact that many of the guests appeared to still be weary from the hotel Christmas eve party! (which we missed, but sounded riotous) The Mariana is not fancy, but it is clean and we all felt safe and well looked after. Mazatlan is a great combination of a vibrant and historical Mexican city and good beach fun in the sun.

This place is awesome- super affordable, clean, and owned by an great couple(Vern & Alfredo) ready to make the stay a memorable one. We had driven down from the states and planned to stop over for a night or two, but when Vern reminded us that the Dia De Los Muertos was in a week we unpacked the van and stayed! 100 meters from the beach and with a great restaurant downstairs, the stay was great. Vern and Alfredo invited us to go to the d.d.l.m. celebration in Machado plaza, and we danced and partied all night! Great place!

Room Tip: each floor has a great patio with a grill. the top floor/roof has a killer view of the ocean!
