Ahhhh... the Inn at Mazatlan! We were excited to meet up with some of our friends from Arizona for a week of relaxing fun in the sun. We attempted to check in around noon and were informed that our room would not be available until after 4 pm because it had not been cleaned yet. The front desk attendant gave us the key anyway and sent us up so we could put our suitcases in the dirty room. We really didn't care so we went for it. Room 5108 has an incredible view, by the way. I don't recommend the all-inclusive option because it's very difficult to eat and drink $56 per day. Trust me. I eat a lot and drink a lot and found it tough to meet the break even point. Especially with all the happy hours and the weak peso. If you explore Mazatlan at night and want to eat elsewhere then the all-inclusive isn't a very good option. Plus, the timeshare wolves will throw $250 US at you plus a bottle of tequila for subjecting yourself to a 90-minute sales pitch. Just suck it up and do it. I also recommend a massage at the spa. Only about $40 US for a 50-minute session. It's a steal. The main pool is fantastic and the bar/food service out there is second to none. I wanted for nothing! I was impressed that our servers took our lunch order and then set up a table and chairs by our lounges (including tablecloth!) so we could eat like humans. There is Pacifico aplenty and I recommend the bucket of beer, especially during buy-one-get-one-free happy hours from noon-1p.m. and 4-5p.m. The price was right for this resort and you get more than what you pay for. The exercise room is above adequate and the service is fantastic. The food was amazing, too. I never had a bad meal the entire time I ordered off the menu (see attached). My only complaint would be the there aren't enough outlets in the rooms for iPod chargers, hairdryers (bring your own, by the way), the TV and the coffee machine. Oh, and the toilet in our room wasn't prepared for the amount of waste I sent its way. The housekeeper was plunging regularly. All in all, I recommend the Inn at Mazatlan. It's conveniently located to everything in the Golden Zone and it's just a short Pulmenia ride to Old Mazatlan if you're so inclined. If you can withstand the H1N1 virus, it's worth the trip!!
