“Average Hotel with a Great View”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

The room itself is nothing spectacular. Getting to the room was a challenge. I'm not sure how many short and long flights of stairs were required to get to and from the entrance and dining room, but it was considerable. The food was simple, but sufficient. The waiters rushed us to leave the dining room without lingering for conversation with our traveling companions. I noticed they enjoy their meals together after the guests leave. Some hiking trails below the hotel leave right from the front door and are easy to follow. But everyone comes for the view and the hotel has that. We were able to sit on our balcony and enjoy the quiet and watch the sunrise in front of us. That experience alone is worth a return trip someday.

This is more like a lodge in the mountains not a hotel, communal dining at long tables, no choice of food except breakfast, the bass lunch wS awful, very old fish I think, told it was chicken for dinner, was beef and mashed potatoes, no choices! Deserts were the best part. Second day was raining, hail, then now, roads closed to Creel, no tour, decided to take train back to El Fuertes, had a terrible time trying to get back the money for the night we would not be there, like almost $300US, finally gave us cash as could not credit the credit card. Very cold, had to change rooms as heater did not work, needed fire in fireplace in common room that we tended, power went out twice, drove us to train and left all of us there for over an hour before train came in freezing weather. Really Need people with hotel experience to run the place and take care of their guests. Will not return.

Room Tip: All have canyon views, take rooms closest to common area or you walk a lot on slopped hallways and s...

The Posada Barrancas Mirador offers a silent view of the stunning Cupper Canyon from a privileged, unique spot. I am probably adding nothing new to other reviewers, but just wanted to drop my compliments and big thank you for a stay difficult to forget. Nice staff and better than expected food as well.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade to the suite if travelling with babies and it is available. We got it at no extra...

The best hotel at this stop on the Chepe train from Chihuahua to Los Mochis, all rooms are the same and like the dining room and public terrace, have a balcony perched directly over the breath-taking canyon. The furnishings are basic but adequate. Our main complaint is that the dining and lounge areas were inadequately heated. There was one charming wood fire set each evening (we were there for 3- most stay for 1 or 2) but this was far from sufficient to warm the space and on the cooler evenings many sat in their coats for dinner! My other gripe is that much of the china and glass was chipped. However, the rooms were kept clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.
Most people come here for the wonderful zip line, about to be extended to become the longest in the world. We took a wonderful private guide (Gustavo Lozano 635 104 9307) to outlying Tarahumara villages and also hired horses for a guided walk through the nearby forests where more Tarahumara live. A small settlement is situated just below the hotel too and the personable Mirador guide David takes visitors there daily at no extra charge, and also on an early morning walk.
We had bought our train tickets to continue to Los Mochis in order to fly on from there to Mexico City but were advised to get off 3 hours earlier at the previous stop, El Fuerte, a charming, authentic, colonial small town. From there we took an early taxi for 1 hour 20 min. ride to the airport. This cost more overall but saved travelling time and was worth it to us.

What a wonderful overnight alongside & perched magically at the edge and top of the copper canyon. Wonderful walks & a cable car nearby. An overnight from and to Los Mochis on the train. Food a bit pedestrain, but nothing wrong with it!

We spent two nights at the Mirador during our Christmas vacation. The hotel is lovely inside and out. The interior has many original paintings and decorations that exude the natural beauty of the location. The food was also wonderful- a generous buffet for breakfast, chicken or fish served at lunch, beef or chicken for dinner. Lunch and dinner include soup, bread, and a nice dessert.

It was very cold in late December. Our room was toasty, but the reception, dining room, and bar were colder than a meat locker! Guests were wearing gloves, scarves, hats, and ski clothing. I understand that there is no air conditioning anywhere at the hotel in the hot weather. You would think that management would go all the way to satisfy customers' basic needs...but they don't! They have done so many things well at the Mirador, why not go all the way?

Room Tip: We were halfway down the main block of rooms up the stairs. It was quiet and had an exceptional view...
