Friendly "Hotel Hacienda Blue Bay" is located near the Marina de Mazatlán, in the quiet and calm north-western outskirts of the city. The "rooms" are really attractive suites, many with a huge king bed in one partition, and two single beds in another. There are fully-equipped kitchens with all the necessary appliances, and dishes are provided. There are also flat-panel televisions and effective air conditioners. The prices are very reasonable.
The hotel is on the beach, although it also sports a swimming pool and a sunning patio. We had planned a single overnight, but ended up staying eight days. There is WiFi, but we can't comment on the reach of the signal. It was certainly adequate on the main floor, in the rooms near the office. The office staff spoke good English.
Extensive renovations are underway, and some of the finished rooms are downright classy, although not quite as charming as some of the older ones.
The hotel offers no comedor (dining room), probably because many guests would avail themselves of the kitchen facilities. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance in some of the neighboring hotels. There are also several convenience stores and a well-stocked super market within easy driving distance.
We considered the place a most fortunate find.
