We were only gringos there third week of Feb but front desk staff speak good English and go out of their way to be helpful. We had pre-booked some excursions but would recommend going through hotel instead. Hotel is midway between Golden Zone and old town, bus stop across street and only 10 pesos fare. Room stark but very clean. Pros: One of best restaurants in Mazatlan is attached, we had breakfast included and also ate several good fish dinners there. Hotel ran a tab for us. Pool was great and usually had it to ourselves. Partial ocean view room was just fine. TV had many channels, some of them movie channels in English Cons: there is a 4 lane highway between hotel and promenade/beach, a bit tricky to negotiate. There is a long tunnel under road to beach but had to ask staff to accompany us and unlock door; didn't seem worth it after the first time. The shower stall was huge but slippery. Internet connection was not always available in room but could always get it in restaurant. One night (out of 7) music from a party kept us awake past midnight (other nights were just fine, the surf lulled us to sleep). Overall good value for the cost.
I am not sure about the "spa" part of the name, there was a salon and an exercise room but we didn't use either. The locals pronounce this hotel name "Coral Ees-lan" so the taxi drivers may be confused when you tell them you want to go there.
