My family and I just returned from a week in one of the ocean front villas. The view was unbeatable, the people were great, the pool was nice, the grounds were beautiful, the restaurant was great, but the water in the room was not potable. I am not a hotel snob when it comes to mexico, I have stayed in hotels there with no electricity or running water at all, but I was surprised that this place, located literally right in the middle of several beautiful new high-rise hotels on the most recently developed part of the beach in Mazatlan had undrinkable water. It was cloudy and tasted like salt. Sadly someone must have run this stuff through the coffee maker because everything it produced, even starting with bottled water, was undrinkable.
The management provided 5 gallon bottles of drinking water, and they probably adjust for this inconvenience in the nightly room rate, but if you exchange your timeshare for an entire week as we do, please be aware of this and factor it into your exchange decision.
