We just got back from staying at Royal Villas for 7 nights (Tuesday-Tuesday). Our church has been traveling to Mazatlan for years to partner with La Vina Church (down the street from the hotel), and have stayed at Royal Villas for 6 years in a row. We have personally been 3 years in a row. Overall this hotel is great! The value is great, especially when compared with what we would receive for an equal price in the US. We have no plans of switching hotels for future trips.
The rooms are very large, great amenities (coffee maker, fridge, kitchenette, great view of the ocean, nice balcony…), and clean. Our cleaning service was great. We never saw maid service, but always came back to a very clean room.
We did not book all inclusive, but enjoyed the happy hour and food at the poolside bar. Guacamole is AMAZING!
We anticipated the hotel being at capacity (we always travel over the local holiday), but this was the first year it felt very full. From Thursday through the weekend, the pool was very crowded. From so many bodies in it, the water became very dirty and cloudy. We mostly stayed out of it from that point, which is a bummer because we normally spend a lot of time in the pool and on the waterslide. It was hard to get lounge chairs over the weekend as well.
Our biggest complaint was that the elevators were not operating well. Sometimes they weren't working, and we had to take the stairs (8th floor is no joke). In our group of 20, there were a few with bad knees that had to use the stairs. Not good.
Hotel staff is very pleasant and helpful. We had no concerns there.
If you come to Mazatlan, this is a great option to stay at. Large, clean rooms, beautiful poolside area, and great beach access. It is also conveniently located in the Golden Zone, and just a short walk to our favorite restaurants (Panama, Panchos on the beach, Dairy Queen, La Michocana for popsicles…). If you are interested in water sports, there are several vendors on the beach. You can bargain with them for great deals. Our group did parasailing, banana tubing, jet skis, and sunset horseback riding- all for reasonable prices.
Last year we took advantage of the spa, and had a great massage!
We are looking forward to our return next year!
