Staying at the Melville is a very different experience than staying in the Golden Zone, but overall was a better one, I think. The hotel is only a block from the Machado, arguably one of the best features of Mazatlan, with a ton of great live music and restaurants. Unfortunately, you can also hear the bars and foot traffic in the rooms. The rooms have great art and kitchens (although ours was not fully equipped with utensils, it was rectified), although the bathroom leaves a little something to be desired. The sumptuous impression of the place doesn't extend to all aspects - the beds and couches are a bit hard, there is no longer a breakfast offered. Not things to condemn the experience, but if you are looking to be pampered, the Golden Zone will probably suit you better. The beaches in the Golden Zone are better too, although The Melville is arguably closer to the ferry to Stone Island. But don't count on the nearby Playa Olas Altas downtown for swimming or lounging, it's pretty windy and the waves are pretty intense. Downtown was fun for being near the market, good local inexpensive restaurants, and walking the historic streets without being hassled by storekeepers. We payed $120 for the double suite (the website is out of date).
