“Beautiful Resort......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2012

Thank goodness for the shuttle to the sister resort PM Maz. We loved it there. We like a bit more action than what Emerald Bay had to offer.
Things we like about Emerald Bay:
Quiet pool and the Bistro restaurant there.
Mario our waiter there was so friendly we always requested him!
Poolside service was fantastic
Our ocean view from our room
Shuttle to sister resort
Grounds were immaculate
Things we didn't like:
Had 2 adults and 2 kids and the accommodations
for sleeping we too cramped. 2 queen beds are not adequate!
No wifi in all rooms
Went to timeshare presentation and ended as scheduled. Interesting to see timeshare guy squirm when we called him on certain points and broke things down to show him how what he was offering us was worse than what we already have in our own timeshare.
Got our gifts as promised but in pesos not USD as we were told.
At checkout our luggage was not picked up in our room by hotel staff. Long wait for them to retrieve and thus put us late at airport.
Lots of walking. Long waits for inter resort shuttles. Oh well... It happens:)

This is an amazing resort, by far the best in Mazatlan. Great location with easy free shuttle into town, Amazing food, spectacular pools, awesome views and the friendliest staff of any resort I have every stayed.

We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful resort. The grounds were kept exceptionally well. Our suite was very clean and well furnished. All employees were very helpful and friendly. We were all-inclusive and found the food to be the best. The pools were beautiful and very clean. It was too windy for us to spend very much time on the beach although the resort is on the beach. We are unable to comment about the activities available because that is not our thing anywhere. We would highly recommend this resort.

WORTH THE MONEY!!!! This is a spectacular, and well-priced spot to escape to! ALL the staff - from the grounds keepers to the poolside servers, to the restaurant staff are very hospitable. Between the Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan and Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay - Emerald Bay has THE BEST POOLS. It is a bit out of the way - but feels very safe, and serene! This was my second visit and I know I will be back!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great...some are newer but have the same decor. If you are not big on walking, as...

This program helped us from losing weeks. We were unable to travel and use our Pueblo Bonito time share because of family issues. The Black Diamond gave us our Maintenance Fee amount back with a little extra and we used the vacation cash for airline tickets to help us in times that we needed to be near family.
The resorts are awesome, finally some hotels in Hawaii and New York. The prices were good and the BEST PRICE GUARENTEE saved us a few bucks in our travel. LOVE IT! They rescued us from lost weeks and exchange fees.

Room Tip: Yes. Do not go into town at dark!

I stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay resort with my family for 5 nights this past August. The resort grounds are overall decent- but not spectacular. The rooms were clean and comfortable but were not completely up to 4 star standards. We found the staff to be nice and helpful, and the food to be pretty good but rather pricy.

This resort is a good place to go for a quick getaway, but it is not for beach activities and swimming. If you are big into water sports and beach activities this is not the place for you. The beach at the hotel has nice sand but the water is rough and not clear/clean like the Caribbean coast of Mexico. We were disappointed by the activities offered at the hotel, unlike resorts we have been to in the Dominican Republic and Cancun where many water sports were offered.

The town of Mazatlan itself is sleepy but "cute" with cobblestone streets and some decent restaurants, but many parts of it were run down and not impressive.

I have at 1 week timeshare at PB Emerald Bay and have been 5 times in the last 6 yrs, If you want to go to a beautiful, quiet and safe location to unwind, this is the place! All the food and drink is very good and safe, neither myself or any people traveling there with me have ever gotten sick. The staff are friendly and fun, plan on making some friends. The pools are gorgeous and the grounds spectacular. They have a wonderful spa where I indulged in a massage and facial this time. And a very nice gym with all the latest equipment. Our maid service was perfect. I will be returning with family in the spring as it is a wonderful place for families, lots of activities and things to do for the kiddos. This is a high end property you will not be disappointed with!
