TravelPod Member ReviewsTorres Mazatlan Resort
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.
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.

... to Pacific Raven to join them. Once again Patti, Colin and Rick used the hookah and Margie used her snorkel gear. The hookah is free floating and as you swim, it follows along via it’s air hoses. It not only provides air but also lets folks on the surface know someone is diving below. It sports a “diver down” flag on the little mast that it uses for fresh air. This was Patti and Rick’s ninth dive. It was by far the most spectacular ...
Mazatlan has a big expat community, mostly retired Americans and Canadians (known as snowbirds) and is also a busy port for cruise ships passing through so I was firmly back in tourist land but Maztlan still has plenty to discover off the beaten track.
My visit to Mazatlan finished up with a delicious seafood dinner at a restaurant on the beach courtesy of Ana. I had a great time staying with Ana, she has ...

The hurricane season officially begins 10 days from now and we still need to go about a 100 south to our chosen hurricane hole in Puerto Vallarta. We’ll spend a few days renewing here in Maz land and then point theboat towards Paradise.
Keep those cards and letters coming!
... d say Devin drives about 70% of the time. He usually does the morning shift because I’m NOT a morning person then I finish off the last few hours of the day. Today, while I was driving, we drove into the biggest city we’ve been to yet…. OMG!! It was nerve wracking but so wonderful! I love the adventure and excitement of figuring it out! Speaking of driving, I was driving the other night when we went to camp on the beach and got stuck in the sand! I must ...
Dashed overnight to Mazatlan to sort out a place to stay before Carnaval kicked off - ideally after an apartment to save on food costs and to enjoy good food & peace from hotel guests - went to a couple of places, full or really expensive. Bumped into a yank, Denny, in the street, who thought he might know someone who had an apartment for rent. Turned out his mate had a place rented til the end of the month but was ...
