“Extraordinary Inn”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

The artistic renovation of this historic home takes it way beyond a B&B to a beautiful boutique hotel. Each room and its private bath are decorated with upscale furnishings and plush linens. Glen and Sharon are endearing hosts who make each guest feel welcome. A delicious breakfast, a well stocked bar and a restaurant with live music loved by the locals, makes this a must-stay place if you visit Mazatlan and a must-visit place if you're just looking for a quick and easy get-away. Close to the beach and the historic district with easy transportation to the local tourist spots. Just perfect!

I went to this establishment two times. Had a great time each time. The bartender speaks English and Spanish. The owner is grounded and is a great guy. The food is outstanding and the beer flows endlessly! They had a great jazz singer there my 2nd trip. Outstanding! Close to world renowned restaurants, old town is within walking distance with the BEST markets!

Room Tip: Never stayed, the bar and restaurant are what I'm talking about! The owner did give me a guided...

This place is just beautiful! We stayed for two nights at the end of March and had a lovely time. The rooms are immaculate and comfortable, and the breakfasts are delicious. The whole building is decorated to a really high standard. Free internet access was a bonus for us as we had to book onward travel from Maz to Los Mochis. The roof terrace was great for chilling out and watching the sunset. We didn't eat at the restaurant downstairs while we were there, preferring instead to go in search of some more local venues, but it was always lively and bustling.

In terms of location, Leyendas is ideal - we wanted to explore the historic centre, and we could see lots within a 10 minute walk. We didn't visit the tourist area which is further north up the coast, but that suited us fine! There are lots of fantastic restaurants and bars nearby and a few lovely shops selling artisan wares.

Sharon was really helpful on our last morning - we had to leave early to catch a bus, and prepared a take-away breakfast for us which was really appreciated.

We'd definitely stay here again.

Unfortunately we only had a short stay in this beautiful place. This place is really really really nice! Very tastefull renovation, very clean and great hosts.

The rooms are beautifull, a great rooftop teras overlooking the sea, beach around the corner and great fish around the corner. If we ever return to Mazatlan we would stay much longer!

I had the pleasure of staying at Casa De Leyendas for only one night, March 29, 2013. Glen and Sharon who run the B&B make you feel very much at home. In fact, it is just like being in your own home. The food is excellent and always made with fresh ingredients. The live music in the evenings added a wondeful touch. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I plan to go back and stay for a longer period of time and enjoy the homely hospitality of Glen and Sharon. Not to mention the food. Also, the location is great just minutes from the beach.

Many thanks to Sharon and Glenn for helping to make our visit to Mazatlan very special.
From initial help with our booking and clear and concise directions, we had a lovely room on the first floor. Excellent internet connection via our iPad, and the breakfast was excellent, the staff happy to meet our requests for a simple omelette and bacon as we had had enough of Mexican beans.....!!

We were especially helped with our ferry booking to La Paz, which a travel agent had made a mess of, and many thanks to Annabel and Sharon for sorting that out.
The location is great, being just minutes walk from the historic centre, and the beach is 5 mins away.

We found the restaurants in the main square very good, and again the owners, at least one of whom was usually on site, very helpful with suggestions.

The house itself is very interesting and has been beautifully renovated in true Mexican style.

Far far better than a large hotel, attentive and personal service. Thanks a lot!!

Room Tip: We had the best suite and it was worth the money, however all the rooms are individually decorated a...

We are a fun loving couple in our twenties, but we are not into the resort/club scene, so we decided to go with a b&b in the historical district. However we were not happy with our experience at casa de leyendas. That being said we did not enjoy mazatlan either...

- EVERYONE HERE IS OLD (apparently mazatlan is a retirement community.. who knew?)
-the rooms are not sound proof and you wake up to the staff banging ice and microwave doors at 6:30am everyday (the microwave actually beeps pretty consistently throughout the day)
- our room had see through curtains so it lacked privacy
- the staff was rude and unfriendly, except for the bartender caesar and one maintenance guy
- One morning it took 20 minutes before anyone would take my breakfast order, I waited over a half hour to get oatmeal!
- the breakfast was pretty blah, the few mexican dishes lacked flavour and spice
- the computer didn't work for most of our trip

I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE FUN LOVING UNDER 40
This is a really nicely decorated bed and breakfast with a sweet rooftop view but that is about the only nice thing i have to say about it...

Room Tip: We stayed in the infante room. It was very dark and had no tv.
