We wanted a relaxing experience, and we got it. The resort is well-removed from the craziness of the Malecon in Mazatlan. It's located south of the city in an area that is very remote and very beautiful. Once inside the grounds, you'll find a huge property which includes a golf course, condos, private residences, and the hotel. The beaches are clean and without any crowds- the strong rip currents keep people out of the water, and the remoteness of the property keeps it isolated.
The plusses are that the rooms are large and well appointed, with large bathrooms, flat screen TVs, etc. The restaurants have very good food, and the service everywhere is excellent. The pool areas are clean and picturesque. There are several small pools and a large one to choose from. The spa is very nice and the prices are excellent. If you want a deep tissue massage, ask for Maria and she'll work you over.
The minuses are that the property is very isolated, and you are at the mercy of the resort's restaurant's hours. If you want snacks or a bottle of water, bring them with you. Also, there isn't a lot to do if you're not a golfer. We thought that our young adult children would have been bored had they gone with us. There are the swimming pools, a beach volley ball net, and horses can be hired for beach rides. Other than that, there isn't much else.
Depending on who we travel with, we will stay at the resort again, We appreciated the excellent staff, who were attentive and friendly. But be aware that it is truly a getaway experience.
