Hotel Playa Bonita in Mazatlan was a perfect place for a New Year's vacation. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms clean, the staff kind and helpful, and their restaurant superb. What a great place to relax just a a block off the beach! This place is located at Playa Gaviotas, which is in the heart of the shops and restaurants...

The Lobby is very nice and gives you a feeling you are going to be in a nice Hotel, but the reality is way different. Real old outdating room, old TV, AC, fan, toilet, no hair dryer, etc. You can hear noises from next door and out to the elevator. I would never recommend this Hotel.

If you want to be in the zona dorado (which is several kilometers from the downtown area), this hotel is a great option. It is an older property but is clean and comfortable, they upgraded our reservation to a suite at no extra charge. Internet connection is good, however at times can be hit and miss, the lobby seems to...

Back for 5 weeks this year and great as usual and booked for 5 weeks next year all ready. Ate at Mango's and their shrimp deablo is terrific. One of the best that we've had. Elevators still working fine. I really can't add too much since my last review as it pretty much sums up what happened this year. Keep...

Any time we had a problem re burnt out light , replaced the stove top etc was done quick and effictient. They have new elevators and hopefully they can stay that way as the...

My boyfriend, daughter and I stayed at Playa Bonita for 2 nights at the beginning of January. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we were walk up guests that just wanted somewhere safe to sleep for a decent price. We paid $59 CAD a night. I asked to see the room before making a decision and we were brought up to large,...

This was the worst hotel in Mexico my mother and I have ever stayed at. The hotel was listed on a website that we have time shares through, but everything that the hotel said in its overview was a complete lie. There was no on site anything, the kitchen was dirty, the air conditioning didn't work, we didn't have any...

Yes I agree with the other person. we have a timeshare there also. The timeshare units are very nice. The problem with the hotel is that it doesn't have a cafe, or swimming pool. They took that out to have an underground parking lot, which they allready had but with only 1`exit. The elevator, there used to be 2, doesn't...

Playa Bonita needs major renovation. We stayed in the penthouse, even so the shower didn't work, bathroom smelled of sewer, and had no hot water for 3 of the 7 days. Beds were good. Hotel has no amenities at all. 3 of the 11 floors are closed and no renovation work seems to be going on. Look elsewhere.
