“Love Mazatlan”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Warm friendly people, beautiful beach, beautiful pool and grounds. Shopping is great and I love the pulmonias... The converted golf carts that act as taxis.

One of the best week vacation at the mayan sea garden. Clean rooms, large pool, great beach. You must try this place. Great location from town, 10 min bus ride from town. No wi-fi but not a deal breaker. My experience with the mayan was a good one. Thank you mayan palace for makeing my vacation experience enjoyeble.

Room Tip: A must,Stay in the newer tower, Clean, new, third floor and above great vews of the pool and beach.

Well, first time we've ever been to Mazatlan for Holy Week, and we won't do it again! Crazy crazy busy with young ones partying on the beach. Local families flock to Mazatlan for Holy Week and all hotels are filled to capacity. Hard to find room at the pool at the Mayan as they allow people to put down towels at 7:00 in the morning to reserve for the day - sometimes the people don't show up until after supper becasue they've been at the ocean for the day! And, can't get a chair on the beach as the grandmas and grandpas are there before 7:00 am reserving every single chair (and there are over 100)! So unfair.

Food is mediocre at best, and pricey because there really is no competition close by. First room we stayed in was not nice. Overtop the laundry and parking lot. I did not feel safe in this room, and I ALWAYS feel safe in Mazatlan! Had problems with the safe, the coffee maker, the room keys, the towel card keys. After 2 days they did move us to a palatial room on the 12th floor. Thank you!

Staff were all wonderful. I did have issues with a 15% tip being added on automatically, when we ordered food while around the pool. I didn't like that. We always tip well, but I resent it being added onto the bill.

Room Tip: Insist on ocean view or you'll end up over the laundry like we did!

We just returned from our first ever visit to Mazatlan. We stayed at the Sea Garden, the grounds were great, the one thing we found while staying there was a great little massage place just a short bus ride from the resort. Marina Massage is located in the Golden Zone just across the street from Pueblo Bonito. Very clean, and great price. $20 an hour for a massage. The owner has been a massage therapist for 15 years and has just recently opened her own shop. The therapists she has working for her are wonderful. We had two appointments and would have made more if we had the time. If you get a chance check it out. Marina Massage is on the same side of the street as the Fish Market and the Meat Market. Wonderful way to spend part of your vacation!!!!

Room Tip: When checking in and you have reservations for the Mayan Palace have them show you the room prior to...

Our recent stay at the Mayan Sea Garden was better than we initially expected. The Hotel has closed about half of their older buildings and is continuing with the Main and newer buildings. Being one of the older hotels in Mazatlan they have focused their attention and much of that is in the beutiful grounds and pool areas. The Concierge desk was an asset for things like booking a tour outside tour desk hours, and supply info on restaurants and attractions. Bus to town from the bus stop at the Hotel Entrance is 9.5 pesos or taxi fares like 100 pesos to the Gold Zone or 140 to downtown and the Green Bus is air conditioned. Hotel food is good and restaurants like Playa Bruga is down the beach or Tacos Escorpio by Henry is just across the road.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach view on checking in

I have just read a few of the reviews for the Sea Garden and I was shocked to see complaints about the staff being unfriendly. My experience has been very different. I make it a point to remember the staffs names and amazingly they remember mine from year to year. I can only suppose that you receive the treatment from them that you give out.

One person recommended not buying into the Sea Garden, impossible to do as it has not been sold for years and the information that most of it is being demolished and rebuilt in the near future is readily available. I don't go there for the newness of the buildings but the wonderful atmosphere.

The only improvement needed very badly is the restaurant and lounge. The prices are definitely too costly, which is why they are not fun places to go as they are almost always empty. However, there are a few good restaurants in the area and cabs and buses are cheap.

Final word, relax and have fun there and don't expect 5 star rooms, because you aren't paying for 5 star.

We were worried when we read the reviews of previous stays but decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised by the service and cleanliness of the hotel and a bonus was the beachfront view! It is a little dated but we were very comfortable and would definitly stay again. We couldn't have asked for more for the money.

Room Tip: rooms ending in 01 beachfront
