We have just returned from two weeks in Mazatlan where we had the good fortune to stay at the lovely El Sol La vida,a stunning boutique hotel situated in Emerald Bay in New Mazatlan, right on the beach.
All the rooms from the huge twin king with its private, sea view balcony to the romantic walled garden room are beautifuly decorated with fully tiled walk in showers and spacious bathrooms.
A pristine ' L ' shaped heated pool is three steps away from the curving beach around the bay.
Not comfortable with extreme temperatures we were pleased to find there is usually a cooling breeze from the ocean. Air conditioning and fans are present but , as another reviewer mentioned , we did not need them .The hotel is away from the bustle and noise of the city, though within easy reach if you want to shop or explore.
You can fish from the beach, stroll or watch the pelicans and frigates and gorgeous ever changing sunsets.
The restaurant has a variety of freshly prepared fare with excellent coffee.
Our hosts were friendly, helpful and available. Definitely no hesitation in reccomending a stay !!
