I'm typing this exactly as I'm reading it and I'm a bit confused here about the ratings of the hotels.
I picked up a Westjet Vacations book on the return flight home and decided to check out Mazatlan.
It seems like Westjet is now charging a fortune IF you just book a flight but if you book a package....well.....just read this!!!!
El Cid Castilla ( rated 4 stars )
$809 per person all inclusive. Book by Oct 31 and save $480 per couple. For travel between Jan 2 and April 30
El Cid Marina ( rated 4.5 stars )
$929 per person ( early booking bonus but doesn't specify what it is )
El Cid Granada ( rated 3.5 stars )
$709 per person ( also unspecified early booking bonus )
Also all inclusive as is the Marina above
Hotel Playa Mazatlan ( rated 3.5 stars )
$579 per person.....also early booking bonus....non AI, BUT I PAID MORE just for my flight. I'm spitting bullets now!!!
Las Flores ( rated 3 stars )
$539 per person
Listen to THIS one.
Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan ( rated 4 stars )
Early booking bonus gets you $320 back per couple and it's ONLY
$669 each!!! And you have from Jan to Dec of 2011 to use it.
Bueblo Bonito EB ( rated 4.5 stars )
Early booking bonus is $100 per couple and it's $589
Luna Palace and Oceano Palace give you $60 and $40 early booking bonus but they only cost $499
I think I've just solved my expensive flight dilemma. Book a package and throw away the hotel part.
I'm going to phone them right now to complain about my crappy cheese plate anyway so I'll book also.Edited: 20 October 2010, 23:50
