Hello Sherri,

The Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan would be my choice. It's a nice well kept older resort with nice suites, a nice pool and easy access to a very nice swimmable beach. There are good restaurants right in the hotel complex and several good restaurants right in the area of the hotel. Buses and pulmonias are plentiful and cheap and will take you anywhere you want to go in a few minutes.

Just my opinion.

Pueblo Bonito is a very good choice for my money, but it is a little dated. For me it just adds a little character to the hotel. My spouse, on the other hand, does not care for it. We have stayed at the Inn at Mazatlan on most of our trips, and it is also an excellent choice. PBEB is way too far out to enjoy Mazatlan in the best way. You can take their shuttle to the PB, but then go from there - taxi, bus, walking... I just don't think it's worth the hassle. Also, as you note, the beach at PBEB is not great for swimming or walking.

One thing going for PB is that all suites have mini kitchens and pool/ocean views. Food and drink at the resort is expensive, and the facilities in the rooms allow you to make some simple meals and drinks to save a little $$.

Have fun!

Of the four specific things you mentioned sherri, PB Maz is superior in at least three of them.

1. The swim up bar set up is one of the best I've seen

2. Cilantros Restaurante inside the complex has wonderful food and the view / ambiance is outstanding. The outside restaurants nearby are among some of the best available in Mazatlan, and IMHO Maz has the best dining on the Pacific coast of Mexico

3. The beach there could arguably be the best in the city, with the stiffest competition coming from Stone Island

Lastly I agree with Dougfir in PB Maz having loads of character....over new glitz. The motif is classico Mexican architecture, and they carried it off perfectly. The buildings have an old world charm and they are kept immaculately clean.

Whatever you decide have a great trip!

We stay at a resort just around the corner from Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan and the nice thing about this area is that there are several restaurants within walking distance. We prefer the resort that we stay in because it has a shuttle to the heart of the Golden Zone and the rooms are more updated. If I were choosing between PBM or PBEM, I would certainly choose Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan. Unless you are only going to Mazatlan for a resort that is very nice, but out in the middle of no where, where you will NOT experience Mazatlan and it's lovely people.

PB Maz is a great place to stay. Our suite was nothing too fancy, but the hotel is nice and the restaurants are great. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. It is not right in the center of the shopping but there are stores and other restaurants right there.
