The Torres Mazatlan is a timeshare, but don't let that keep you from staying here. The condos are well-appointed and large, with full kitchens and comfortable furnishings. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant is perfectly acceptable, even if the prices are slightly higher than you might find elsewhere. They offered live music with Sunday brunch when we were here -- karaoke saxophone, not too loud. The grounds also include a laundry, a limited convenience store, a gym, and a few other amenities.
The location is not great, but it isn't bad either. The hotel sits in the middle of a long stretch -- maybe over three miles -- of beach. Surrounding it is mostly condominiums, plus a couple of other hotels. There are not a lot of dining or shopping options within close walking distance of the resort. If you don't mind walking two miles along the beach, you can reach the Bruja or other restaurants to the north.
On the other hand, there is excellent -- inexpensive and regular -- bus service that runs past the hotel to the old town, the Zona Dorado, and other locations. We were not there long enough to go to the Mega or other supermarkets, but the bus goes past, and it would be easy to provision your own condo with food.

I've been to Torres twice now, most recently in May of 2003, previously in November 1999. We love it there! My In-laws have been going here for 20 years and are known by name and face. It's almost like going to see family. Oscar and Emilio (servers at the resturant) make every meal a joy and the food is great. Being able to have breakfast outside with the ocean is unbeatable (dolphins like to swim around and show off), as is the fresh orange juice and salsa! Our rooms were very clean and decorated nicly. Both times we have been in buiding A. These units have not been remodeled as some off the other buidings have but the view is worth it. We did notice on our last visit that the exterior of the builing was needing some repair, the stucco was cracked and missing in some places. Otherwise a fantastic place to go. We like the quite of not being in the city and the employees are a joy to be around. We'll go back again, and again, and again.
Recomendations - take snacks. If you're up late at night and you get hungry it's not too easy to run and get something. However you have a full kitchen so take advantage and bring your fav treats with you. When you leave, any food in the room can go home with the employees for their families.
Get up early to get the best spot at the pool. Umbrellas are taken fast!
Relax - time in Mexico moves much slower then the US, but it's good for you :)
This will be 13th trip
We started going to Torres Mazatlan 11 years ago- we are returning this December with friends and family again for the 13th time. This is a great place to bring family of any age. The employees are the best, the food is outstanding and the accommodations are 1st class. I would recommend Torres Mazatlan as the best of all worlds......
What a great place to stay! We stayed in Tower A...right on the beach. Great pool, great rooms, great waiters in the restaurant, great views! We'll definately go back! NOT in July though...way too hot. Also...skip the Stone Island tour...yuck! Lots of dirt and poverty. Stick with Deer Island or fishing. AND watch out for Jellyfish...my little one had a run in with one. Very painful. But, yes, we'll definately go back.
Great place to stay! Fun in the Sun!
Awesome Stay! Got back yesterdayWould recoommend very highly, only downfall was hard beds and away from Golden Zone but everything needed and to do was at resort...Will visit again, recommend more april, less humidity...very very good resort and hope who visits have the best time!
Loved the torres
We stayed at torres in may of 2003, beds were to hard, food was great and so was the service, jaquize pool was not operating as it should! stayed in biulding a, great ocean vieuw!
Loved it all!
We have been doing timeshare trades for about eight years. This is among the best we have stayyed at! Our unit was immaculate. Beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were roomy. The kitchen was fully equipped. The only things it lacked was a phone & TV in the unit and we thought we'd need them, but never missed them. There is computer Internet access in the check-in area for a small fee (about $2.00 equiv for 1/2 hr online). It was among the best activities program that we have seen. Grounds are superbly kept up. Oceanfrontaage is also very clean. We enjoyed strolls in both directions. We did venture into the town a few times, but unlike other places, we saw no need to make a daily trip into town. All of our needs were adequately met at the resort. The restaurant, La Palapa, offers very good fare. The tortilla soup was especially wonderful as a luncheon dish (had it twice).
Could not ask for more
It is buy far the nicest most beautiful resort there. fun when you want and peace when you want it. the total package.
You don't need to go elsewhere
Everything you need is on-site & there's plenty to do off-site, too. Ocean view, nice restaurant w/ good food & good prices, pool, hot tub. Open windows & ocean breezes of just the right temp day & nite. Being away from TV & phone was sooooo relaxing. The people were great--everyone from manager to maid greeted us on sight & took good care of us. Not a single reason not to go back.
Wonderful Place to stay
I stayed at the Torres Mazatlan the week on oct 19-27 2002. It is wonderfully maintained and clean. The staff absoultly pamper you. Especially in the Palapa Restaurant. It was wonderful not to have to worry about a thing and was trully able to relax and enjoy myself. the Activities they offer are neat, Massage, some Beauty care, Games and such were fun and you didnt have to participate unless you wanted to. The pace of the place is slow. and if you dont wear a watch it becomes timeless. I highly recomend this as a place to stay.
Only way to go!
The Torres Mazatlan was wonderful in every way possible. Beautiful, clean and safe accomodations. The staff were so friendly and go out of their way to help you and make sure your stay is enjoyable. Activities for all ages.

... the town's economy was really hurt, and their government promised better protection.
The cliff divers were in an area where there were many aggressive merchants selling their wares. Ron forgot his hat, and he just happened to be in the market for a new one. He talked the merchant down from $15 to $4.
We ended the tour in a local restaurant that served a complimentary drink and chips with salsa. One of the servers made hats out ...
... and the main attraction, which was an underwater statue of the Virgin Mary! The big news was the hookah. It was easy to use and looked to us like it will be a better fit for us on Winterhawk than traditional SCUBA tanks.
Jaltemba is noted for the vendors selling "seafood on a stick" along its long sandy beach. We took a several hour break after the dive to rest up for our next adventure. At about 1700 we all piled into the two dinghies and headed ...
... lure right off the bat, thinking we are cruising the best fishing grounds in North America, the islands off of Baja. I pulled in seaweed over and over again. There were lots of flying fish doing their skipping- soaring- crashing- back- into- the- sea- thing, but only the occasional dolphin sighting. We would see large areas in the distance that would be teaming with fish, birds and dolphin, apparently feasting, but we continued on with only these distant ...
Just accommodation for now...........
Whilst here I stayed at Hotel Del Rio, Benito Juarez No. 2410, Tel: 01 (669) 9824430. This was located at the heart of Mazatlan's old town and was by far the best budget hotel to stay in town and the most popular place to stay among backpackers. The spotless en-suite rooms were well maintained and had cable TV and free purified water. The down side is that the rooms ...
... of these monster lots but luckily we are still slightly ahead of the snowbird season and find the place of choice mostly empty. Before we leave, rigs begin to trickle in. We enjoyed visits with our neighbors, a couple from BC, Canada. Most snowbirds along this coast are from Alberta and British Columbia although we see plates from many places. California,Texas and Colorado keep up with the Canadians but it seems not to matter where you come ...
