“Have been going for years with my family and love the location and value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

This is the place to go if you are looking for a little peace and quite. Its just off the main strip known as the golden zone but close enough you can either walk to the fun or just catch one of the hundreds of busses or taxis constantly passing by. it is right on the ocean and across the street is the marina so fishing is made easy. Mazatlan is a must see if you are planning a trip to Mexico. So much to do with the family and kids and is really safe. After 15 years of going I've only ever had one problem and it was with a corrupted police officer about 8 years ago looking for some fast cash. I gave him $20 and was on my way. I was walking on the beach late at night by myself and he stopped me and said I was trespassing? Since then the government has worked very hard to clean up the corruption and tourists are left completely alone as after a few bad things happened in Mexico people just stopped going and they finally realized that we are the bread and butter. Now if the local cops want some fast cash they simply use extortion with the business owners. One thing you should keep in mine is there is crime anywhere you go and Mazatlan is overall one of the safest cites I've traveled to. The police this last year are parked at every corner of the streets with their flashing lights on letting their presence be known. It helps keep drugs and crime from entering the tourist areas. They are for the most part very helpful if you have any questions or need help getting around. They know they are there to help now and not hassle. As with visiting all new places just be smart and always travel with at least another person, be respectful, know the rules, have fun, and you will be safe.
Happy travels.

I am driving through Mexico and it is a little difficult finding pet friendly.I was guided to the Hacienda Blue Bay Hotel and it is nice for the dog and me. Being North of the Zona Dorado is nice .Mexican families crowd here on weekends.

Friendly "Hotel Hacienda Blue Bay" is located near the Marina de Mazatlán, in the quiet and calm north-western outskirts of the city. The "rooms" are really attractive suites, many with a huge king bed in one partition, and two single beds in another. There are fully-equipped kitchens with all the necessary appliances, and dishes are provided. There are also flat-panel televisions and effective air conditioners. The prices are very reasonable.

The hotel is on the beach, although it also sports a swimming pool and a sunning patio. We had planned a single overnight, but ended up staying eight days. There is WiFi, but we can't comment on the reach of the signal. It was certainly adequate on the main floor, in the rooms near the office. The office staff spoke good English.

Extensive renovations are underway, and some of the finished rooms are downright classy, although not quite as charming as some of the older ones.

The hotel offers no comedor (dining room), probably because many guests would avail themselves of the kitchen facilities. There are excellent restaurants within walking distance in some of the neighboring hotels. There are also several convenience stores and a well-stocked super market within easy driving distance.

We considered the place a most fortunate find.

Room Tip: It can get somewhat noisy on the lower floors. The ideal rooms seem to be on the top floor, facing...
