This was only our second trip to Mexico, our other was to Sandoz Caracol near Playa del Carmen. Our room was located in the tower and the view of the ocean was spectacular. Room was clean and spacious. Beds were on the firm side and a little short. Overall service from staff was good but not to the standard we experienced on our first Mexican trip. Service was especially disappointing at Mexican restaurant for breakfast and at Argentine a la carte for dinner. Beach is amazing and you can walk for miles along it, but be prepared for aggressive peddling by locals. We got used to it after a couple of days. We found the buffets good with alot of selection. We took in 4 tours offered by Pronatours and enjoyed them all: city tour, country tour (Copala), Huana Coa zipline tour and sunset cruise tour. We were apprehensive about going to Mazatlan after all the bad press, but we enjoyed our trip and would recommend it as a destination.
