“Scenic, Peace, Seclusion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

My family and I stayed there for one night on our way into our trip to Durango. The location is very close to the Mazatlan airport so that was very convenient. The property is very secluded, its actually located on an island peninsula and is a huge golf course. The security entrance is about 1.5 miles away from the actual hotel because of the golf course and under-development of vacation homes being built in between. Still when you arrive, the place is very paradise-like with the font desk being outdoors.
The staff are very friendly and helpful... We had 3 rooms and they were all in the 1st floor. Each room was spacious with both ceiling fans and air conditioners, which was ideal for the hot beach weather there. We all had an outdoor sitting area that seemed private and facing a garden area.
The beach is literally a few feet away from you as you walk towards the infinity pool. The premises are very open and free to roam the beach sands and kiddy pools.
The restaurant is spacious and also includes a large bar. The food was the only thing we weren't too pleased with. We had dinner and buffet breakfast the next morning. The buffet selection was very minimal and not too tasty. Still, the hotel was excellent as far as service and accommodations. If you want to get away from it all, this is definitely a place. We needed it from our travels, but if you're into being around the Mazatlan/Mexican culture, then this place won't be for you.

Room Tip: You can easily take a taxi from the airport that won't cost you much because its not far.

I have stayed at the hotel a few times. It is a nice getaway, rooms are nice and staff is very friendly and professional. The Golf Course has very good grass on the fairways and it is a good challenge with a lot of nice views. Bring your camera

Room Tip: rooms in 3rd floor are quiter

the golf is wonderful, the hotel was good service, but lacking in somethings..restaurants were basically the same. The beach and pool are lovely and the staff is great. will go back again soon for the golf, but 'wont stay at the hotel so long, will stay in Mazatlán part of the time..

Room Tip: ocean front room of course is best

This is a beautiful resort close to the airport but 30 min away from any shops, restaurants and life. It is ideal for couples or people searching isolation. It has 2 restaurants but hours are limited. You need to take a $30 taxi ride to go anywhere or rent a car. The building is beautiful but needs some work. I had to change rooms twice due to AC problems. Each room has individual AC and is over 90 F in May. I will never go there again during that hot season. I was told that November to February is the best time.

The Estrella Del Mar is a condominium, housing, and hotel, golf resort. It is located near the Mazatlan airport but is very far from the city of Mazatlan. The only restaurant available on Mondays at the time of our visit was at the golf course clubhouse. The food at the clubhouse and at the hotel when it was open is acceptable but is fairly high priced for the quality. There is no food store, confectionary, or other amenities for miles. You must have a vehicle if you are going to stay here for any length of time. The golf course is the main attraction and we played 18 holes every day we were there. The price for guests was about $100 US for 2 people with a cart.

We booked the room with unlimited golf but when we got there we found that it was only for 1 person and only meant 18 holes per day. Why would they offer a room for two people with unlimited golf and then say it was golf for only one person??

In conclusion if you have a car, like golf, and are willing and able to leave the resort for other activities then this is a fair place to stay. If you have children or are limited in travel abilities there would be nothing here to interest you.

We rented a condominium. We understood that the furnishings, which are provided by the individual owners, will vary somewhat, but the furnishings as well as the overall appearance of the unit (appliances, floor materials, etc.) were a far cry from what we were sold. We paid $260 a night and expected to get what the brochure pictured, or something close to it.

The bed in our unit was the hardest bed I've ever slept on. And I travel internationally about 100 nights a year. We could not easily change it, because of course by the time we discovered this it was very late. I ended up sleeping on the couch. The following morning I went to complain about it at breakfast, and the manager came to see us about it 'only' four hours later. To her credit, she did understand that we were sold something that they did not deliver, and she did understand that the bed was not something that most people would tolerate. She moved us to a better unit and offered to credit us for the one night.

It has now bee two weeks since we left, and the credit has not appeared on our credit card statement, even though I've made several emails and pone calls to clear it up.

Room Tip: maybe the hotel rooms are better, we did not stay there. The hotel is a long ways from the rest of...

If you want solitude and beautiful beaches this is the place. We stayed in the phase two portion of the condominiums and we felt like we almost had the place to ourselves. The pool is beautiful and well maintained and our room was only a couple of hundred feet from the beach. The resort has 3 miles of sandy beachfront. There is a small convenience store on property, but we went in to Mazatlan (about a 30 minute drive) to stock up our kitchen. We at at the golf course clubhouse restaurant twice and were very impressed. The airport is within 15 minutes of the resort.
