“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We visit Emerald Bay every year, and every year we enjoy out stay more. The restaurants and bars are wonderful, and we really enjoy the all-inclusive plan. There are always activities at the pool for everyone to enjoy.
I would love to see a REAL couch sleeper. Hopefully soon, the resort will make that change.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floors are quieter---no chance for little feet scurrying about till late at night.

My girlfriend and I have stayed at PB Emerald Bay on 2 occasions now and are going back again in 2014. The grounds are amazing and the views of the ocean are incredible, but the ocean swimming here can be a bit risky with how rough the waters are in this bay...but, we love their pools anyway. We love the location because it is so quiet and peaceful, compared to staying somewhere along the gold zone where all the tourist hotels are located, which has a lot of traffic and the noise and smog that goes with it...trust me we have stayed in the gold coast and it is much closer to the restaurants and attractions but PB has a free shuttle you can take to get to their hotel in the gold zone and then you can go from there. The service and rooms are all better than average and once you stay at a place like this, it is hard to go back to the run of the mill resorts.

Room Tip: all the rooms have ocean views, so, the only choice is which floor you want to be on for how high yo...

At every turn the service was amazing. The wait staff at all restaurants and bars were terrific. The choices for food were good for the all-inclusive option. Which was definitely a nice surprise. The beds could be bigger, especially in the larger executive suites. Getting around the resort is easy as it is mostly on one to two levels.

Beautiful grounds and activitys. Infinity pool is an all day event. Refreshes the soul. Events in Mazatlan are of good value and enjoyable. Best keep secret of Mexico. Stayed there a week. Saw lots of sights - the downtown market is my favorite. Will go back.

I had no idea what to expect but fell in love immediately! The accomodations are extraordinary, the property is gorgeous, the food is excellent, the amenities plentiful and appreciated! Total relaxation!!! Free shuttles into Mazatlan where you can shop to your hearts delight and get a real feel of Mexican life. Will return many, many times!

We own a timeshare at this hotel, however this was the 2nd time we go there. The hotel is beautiful and well maintain, the hotel is right on the beach which is very rocky and hard to swim most of the time, the pools are beautiful and the hotel offer several of them, even so there is an adult only pool besides the main pool by the lobby and another big pool at the very end of the hotel. The food is great, loved the variety of dishes they offered every night, however the service was not the best and needs improvement. The bistro restaurant has an extremely slow service, drove me crazy as each time would be 7-10 minute just to bring your drinks. The service at the bar inside the pool was horrible, the waiters will talk among each other and we literately had to wait until they were done cheat chatting, one time the waiter gave me and extreme hot bottle of water and told the other waiter (the one that handed me the bottle) that it didn't matter it was hot, didn't bother to offer me a cup of ice for it, until I told him if he normally drinks hot water like that on a hot day, another time gave me a beer that was sitting there for a while, I had seen him pour it for another customer that didn't wanted after all and waiter just placed it on a shell behind him and that it was what he was giving me until I told him I wanted a brand new beer. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the other pueblo bonito which is closer to the main town.

Pueblo Bonito at Emerald Bay is most certainly a 5 star resort,. We stayed there two weeks in Feb, 2013. The staff are very compassionate, always friendly, wanting to do everything to make our stay a pleasant one.
When we arrived we received a welcome second to none. We were escorted to the main desk where we checked in. We then were escorted to another area to arrange for a tour of the resort the following day which of course was the time-share presentation. This was very well presented and we were given 2 - $50 dollar vouchers for use at the spa and a 15 % discount voucher for the Deli.
A Golf-Cart mini taxi took us to our room and woa what a view. We were so thrilled with the room with two bathrooms, deck with a beautiful view, king size bed.
Now we wanted food after travelling all day from Vancouver. We didn’t have a map of the resort layout so we had no idea how to find the restaurant as the resort was so large. We had to ask for a map of the resort. So one recommendation would be to give first timers a map of the resort. Actually on the day we were leaving we found a very colourful map in the bedside table, this map should be left on the coffee table for the next guests.
We did chose all-inclusive and the food was wonderful. This all-inclusive is a meal plan not always buffet for all meals.
The staff were first class, worked hard and were very attentive to all our needs. They make $8.00 per day so tipping is expected even though the resort explains that all-inclusive includes your tip. So recommend you have lots of dollar bills or pesos.
The resort is far away from all the downtown area so no venders which is very peaceful.
There is a free shuttle that takes you to downtown Mazatlan to the other Pueblo Bonito. You can then walk the beach from there or take a transit bus to the center of town. There are two types of buses: the Mexican bus costing 5 pesos or the green tourist bus “Sablo Centro” which has air conditioning , is very clean and costs 10 pesos. There are many good restaurants downtown but it takes a while to learn about the good ones from people you meet. The water at the resort is very good , you can drink out of the tap and brush your teeth. Apparently the resort has its own water treatment facility.
