“Really beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

This facility has a lot to recommend it - an adult pool, nice and deep and heated, with a swim-up bar, free wifi that occasionally works (but the free shuttle to town has excellent wifi service), lovely views, a nice large area for families with separate pools. There are only 2 restaurants on site, though, and the food is expensive and not that great. For a week, this is a wonderful place to be.

Room Tip: All the junior suites face the ocean!

Not sure why there is not a lineup of vacationers wanting to rent a condo here. We rented privately from owners of a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom, full kitchen, dining area and living room. Furnishings and location obviously vary from owner to owner, so do shop around as this is not a resort so don't be expected to be entertained. However, the amenities include tennis courts, beautiful pools, hot tub and the best features are the beautiful beach location with comfortable lounge chairs and palapas and the excellent restaurant poolside.The outdoor restaurant serves a good variety and has a daily special for breakfast and lunch as well as a bar. We stayed 2 weeks in April. But only stay here if you want charming staff,friendly people, quiet evenings, exceptional beachfront, and great value!

Room Tip: the first floor does not have a ocean view. building number 2 has the best ocean view 1 and 2 have p...

Rented from an owner again, we stayed from Jan 12 to the 28th everything was nice. The condos are all owned by retired Canadian and American snowbirds, you rent from owners, not from some corporation. It is quiet, there are absolutely no organized activities. There is an activities desk where you can book everything from adventure tours to zip line outings. The party and shopping area of town is a 10 minute, 70 cent bus ride from the front of the building.

The restaurant is good, prices are low. The building and grounds are gorgeous. The beach is the best in the area.

I've seen some odd comments mentioning the timeshare sales people and the noisy party atmosphere. They are obviously confusing the Pueblo Bonito resort with the Costa Bonita. Costa Bonita has ZERO timeshares; it is 100% privately owned residences. And it is NEVER noisy or a party place.

Don't stay in the time share units. Sparsely furnished and over occupied. Party atmosphere prevails and there is no way to control the behavior of the renters. Nice beach front location but not a place for rest & relaxation.

There are a number of negative reviews about this place, so I thought it might be helpful to give my view since I stayed there last week.

Overall, this is a terrific choice for what it is and that is a condo right on the best beach in Mazatlan. This is NOT a "resort hotel" if that is what you are looking for, i.e. a concierge to book everything for you, tons of activities (i.e. an activities desk) onsite, this is not for you.

Pros:
1. Best beach. It is private and beautiful.
2. The private palapa's are a great place to nap or read a book right on the beach. The beach is well maintained, groomed every morning. There is an attendant who will set you up (no charge).
3. Very peaceful and quiet. This is about 4 miles from the hustle and bustle of the bars.
4. Nice pools (there are two--one warm and one cold for the Canadians).
5. Walking distance to a number of restaurants (Playa Bruja).
6. Nice units, ours had two bedrooms and two baths, tile, granite, etc. with washer dryer.
7. Great value.
8. Very good onsite restaurant that recently added a little "room" directly on the beach and commanding of amazing direct ocean views.

Cons:
1. This is NOT where you want to stay to "party". Many of the residents (owners) are older.
2. Some of the units are starting to show their age if they haven't been updated yet.


Net net, is that this is not an "ultra luxury" property but it is very nice. Stay here with confidence.

Room Tip: Go for a unit in the "B" or "C" building. Best views (B building) and washer/dry...

We rented suite 309B for 2 weeks from the condo owners. The condo was very nice and very clean, it was equipped with everything we could want including wifi and a free phone to make calls to the US and Canada. The building was well maintained. There are elevators, 2 pools, kiddy pool, gas grills to use, restaurant, a small store (there is a bigger store across the street). The complex is gated so only people who belong there can enter. The beach is the nicest in town, wide, soft sand, gently sloping, and dotted with palapas. There is a beach guy who brings you loungers and the waiter comes out to the beach to take drink orders. We stayed there 4 times and were never disappointed, will be back.

Costa Bonita Condominium and Beach Resort is an idyllic place to stay in the wonderful city of Mazatlan Mexico. Situated right on what has to be one of the world's finest beaches you couldn't ask for a better location. The Palapa Restaurant serves delicious food and cocktails to be enjoyed whilst having an enviable view of the Pacific Ocean. The staff at the resort are amongst the friendliest anywhere in the world. Loungers are available free of charge around the pool or at the palapas situated on the beach. The amenities also include two swimming pools, a jacuzzi, library and hot tub. In addition there is a well equipped air conditioned gym and tennis courts for those who enjoy some healthy pursuits whilst on holiday. Horse riding is available nearby. The resort benefits from the services of a masseuse and only a phone call away is a beautician who will give you a manicure and/or pedicure. The local buses are wonderful and incredibly cheap and run a very frequent schedule into the city. Taxis, aurigas and pulminias are also available for hire to get you about this wonderful city.

If you are looking for a stress free holiday by the ocean you simply couldn't ask for more.

Room Tip: Choose a condo on B building for uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean.
