This time we brought along our son that stayed in his own room to introduce him to Mazatlan. As every time we stay the staff is very accommodating... More

So the food was of a nice variety, the rooms were big and clean, it is a very big resort- very busy- convention after convention. There were times that we could not eat in the regular dining hall because they would have it closed for convention activities. So the convention people would still be at the pool at 3 in... More

Loved the pools and food my kids had a blast on the water slides and playing with other guest. The only down side was the beds, they were on a concrete base which made them very hard. I did love the shower and the room had lots of storage space for clothes and luggage. We spent 7 days there and... More

Check in was quick and efficient. Careful of desk behind you on he other side of lobby - time share folks. We got hooked (didn't buy but decided to have a look) and negotiated two large bottles of tequila plus an excursion. They will give away pottery shot glasses too....very cool.

We spent 4 days in this beautiful resort and were happy. Large swimming pools, many restaurants and bars, long white sandy beach with friendly, swimmable Ocean and gorgeous sunsets. The only two reasons I didn't rate it 5 stars are: 1) that the management should invest in their own staff and have them become more fluent in English. This may... More
