Overall, we have nothing to complain about our stay at the Castilla. It was of good value for the price we paid for our vacation. However, I have two safety concerns. From floor 14 up to the 19th at the Castilla, the concrete railing is very low and fairly wide open along the hallway. This is very dangerous as people can slip and fall over to their deaths if not careful - particularly children. Below floor 14, the hallways have an extra piece of glass over the railing for added protection. I am not sure why this was not installed from floor 14 and up! The second safety concern has to do with the patio above the Cascada restaruant at the El Moro. Again, there is no protective railing so people can fall and severely hurt themselves.
Mazatlan is a great place to visit although the time share people along the Golden Zone can get pretty aggressive and very annoying.
