Travel Blogs from Mazatlan
I had visited Mazatlan previously in 2000 when my cruiseship, the Carnival Elation, made a stop there. I had spent the afternoon at a beach going parasailing and I had a feeling I would probably be back one day for a longer stay. The cruiseships are no long stopping at Mazatlan due to increases in violent crime. This has led to fewer overall …
... and they were so helpful. We had a couple nice
evenings visiting with them in the shade/comfort of their wonderful RV set up.
If you are reading this blog, thanks again Van, Roseanne and Kristy!
Slowly but surely, each day we learn a tiny bit more
Spanish. While in Mazatlan we had to find a vet, get Lola’s prescription , and buy
a modem from the TelCel company, all with our little bit ...

Big O's take on the days events
Oh ho! Something seems to be wrong with my front wheel! Hope the slave master doesn't throw a fit when he notices: but it's no longer a nice little circle...
As for my new friends, hope to meet up with the intrepid KLR twins again. Whishing you the best of luck with your mechanically challenged masters...
... sit on the square and people-watch. Tonight, the central gazebo will host part of the Mazatlan Jazz festival, and we witnessed the arrival of about eleven large crates of sound equipment. After lunch, we got ice cream, walked back past the cathedral (which was closed … boo hoo!) then caught the bus home.
Paul had a phone call in the early evening, which went remarkably well, considering that we had such sketchy wifi all ...
... our way quickly through Mazatlan to the ferry port and, more by good luck than good planning, got onto a ferry that evening ... we even managed a cabin but not before a prolonged wait!
Now Baja awaits ........

How has this condo rated in the past?
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.

Historical Traveler Reviews Torres Mazatlan Resort
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.
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!
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.
