There are two hotels, one on the Gold Zone, the other at the north end of Mazatlan - both on the beach. We stayed at the later. A free shuttle between them runs hourly. Our complex is styled in faux Tuscan. It is very pretty, with huge rooms ( ours had two bathrooms for our one-bedroom place) Most have views of the ocean. The buildings are between two and four stories. About half have decks with chairs and tables, the others have a large, living-dining area with full refrigerator and two-burner stovetop and a microwave. Our resort had several swimming pools, large, crystal clean, and enough to accommodate everyone - even when the resort was totally booked. 9I swam laps every day - often as one of only a couple people in the pool near Cilantros restaurant.) There are two restaurants - a buffet and a sit-down (Cilantros). The food was excellent in both. We also tried the restaurants in the sister property. They were also excellent.
We stayed as all-inclusive. Many guests are time share owners or just pay for rooms. So there was never waiting for seating at restaurants. I thought the all-inclusive was worth the cost as it included everything, including drinks and the best wine we have had at any of the resorts we have stayed at in Mexico - except in room wi-fi. (There was free wi-fi in one area of the resort, or one could pay by the hour, day, or week for in-room connections.) Employees did appreciate tips, though they were included in the package. We brought a hundred dollars each and were able to tangibly appreciate the excellent service.
Unlike resorts on the east coast of Mexico that we have experienced, there were few evening shows and just a bar for music at night. This was fine with us, but I think that folks in their twenties and thirties with no kids would find the evenings rather dull.
As part of our stay was during Easter week, there were many families escaping the middle of Mexico with their kids. The pools in the middle of the resort seemed perfect for children.
