“Best Mazatlan view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

This bar on top of this 1st high rise hotel is the best place to see 360 degree view of Mazatlan. Waiters friendly & quick to serve. Have to walk up last stairs as (original!) elevator doesn't go there! Must do experience.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

We recently spent 10 days at the Posada. We stayed in a great suite with a kitchenette, living area and a bedroom. The views were fantastic......ocean view from the front and city view with cruise ships from the side. The suite is huge with 2 tables and sets of chairs, couch, etc.

However, all suites are next to the elevator which sounds like a trapped moose howling all day and stomping it's heels. It was nearly unbearable. Plus the street is very busy and cars can be heard careening by at all hours. If you like quiet, this is not the place for you.
But if quiet is not a concern, this hotel is great....situated in the Old City and huge with wonderful views. The staff were wonderful, too.

Room Tip: You can hear the elevator in all the rooms, I believe, so try and get a room as far away from the el...

" clunk" goes the elevator from 1946 to take you to a private pool and sunset bar on the 11 th floor. Most romantic place ever! Rooms lovely with lots of charm. Exceeded our expectations. Great staff and super reasonable. Best Western had a short term promo of third night free so paid only $60.00 a night. Huge breakfast with tons of fruit overlooking ocean.

We stayed for three nights. Booked on-line and reserved a city-view room. When we checked in they put us in a small oceanfront room - this was OK with us. The room was basic - no fridge etc., but clean and a nice ocean view.

The front desk and bell hop staff were excellent. The included breakfast was good - lots of Mexican choices and if you wanted they would prepare something a la carte.

The location is first-rate - right on the bus route, close to centro historico and across the street from Olas Altas. There a number of restaurants and bars right in the area and a lot more downtown.

The rooftop pool was small but nice. The roof has a great view of the surrounding area and the city.

Room Tip: Front of the hotel can be a bit noisey between the waves and the street (Malacon) in front of the ho...

This hotel is in the "Old Town" of Mazatlan. The rooms are a bit small but are great. The location is the best thing. It is on the end of the Mazatlan beach that is farthest away from Condoland/The Golden Zone. You can ride a bike to Condoland or just walk there, but it is a wonderful distance from the part of town that is filled with tourist shops and tourists.

The hotel probably isn't that old, but has a classic hotel feeling to it. The rooms are small but it's OK. There is a rooftop pool and a bar on the floor below. The staff here were very, very awesome and friendly*. The top floor is a great place to watch the sunset.

The hotel break fast was awesome! A buffet with two types of corned beef hash, spicy potatoes, great bread, juices, etc.

The nicest thing about staying at this hotel is that you are on the "Mexican" end of the beach. There are multiple good restuarants just down the street that aren't filled with tourists, you can rent a bike a block away and ride up and down the beach. It's more like being in Mexico than being in condoland.

If I go back to downtown Mazatlan, this will be the only place I stay.


*Shout out to Elias!

Don't order the margaritas - they were over-priced and weak.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean have balconies but you are right over the street. It's only two lanes but...

The Lobby and grounds have a 'chill' polynesian vibe. The rooms are brand new. Looks less than 1 year old. They say it's 7 years. A cascade in the pool. A nice pool-side bar and snack-restaurant "Drink" . A grat pick , not a big (fancy) resort, but it's clean safe and haa a real peaceful vibe. not expensive $983 a night (pesos) breakfast included. I do not like places where i feel dirty or desperate. This is awesome. I will return. Free Parking.Business center (computers for use) It's really nice. Good taste. There are a lot of places where the 'owners' obviously don't care. this is NOT one of them.

Room Tip: A room facing the Beach I'm sure are nicer The others face buildings.
