Long long slow journey northward to
quieter realms was the idea. Our research department requires a bit more training me thinks, granted the journey was indeed long but the
destination definitely not quieter. It was in fact a full blown resort town so we've sort of resigned ourselves to the fact that we are now out of secluded bays and …
... that, the truck was off! Police in Canada would probably just smile wicked.ly and drive off without even thinking of intervening...
Must of been around 4-5pm when we hit Culiacan and we (namely Brett ;) ) briefly contemplate driving on to Mazatlan but the possibility of not making it and potentially not finding lodging along the way, prevailed and so we called it quits and hunted down a hotel room. We ran around the city for ...
... 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 ...
... trip, and we think we've just found the queen. Picture the Tasmanian Devil (energy level) with a little Daffy Duck thrown in for humour. She is great! She's built and contracted this complex on her own over the last 12 years, a renowned mosaic artist, all the cabins display functional pieces (sinks, tables etc.) of her work. It is truly a unique and beautiful place. The town is recovering from the long weekend, apparently, as remote as it is, it is known by Mexicans ...
... sitting there for a while, a bunch of people started towards us, coming through the trees. To our relief, they were Federales (federal police). We like seeing them (and we see them on the roads a lot) because they’re the ones fighting the narco-trafficers and keeping Mexico a safe place. They informed us that we were on private property. In the end, they said we could stay there and ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Great place for families. The Villas had plenty of space for us with all the facilities provided. The swimming pools and jacuzzi were a hit with the kids and we had our space to sit and relax. The only comment I would have is that the kitchen area was a little tired and probably needs to be updated this season as it was starting to fall to pieces, but even this wasn't really a down side. All in all I would definitely recommend for families

Relax from a stressful lifestyle
We enjoyed Mazatlan as well as Villas El Rancho, we like the gardens and the ocean is beautiful, the beach is so clean it shines, is a small place in a big relaxing atmosphere.
Great Family atmosphere
We have been members at El Rancho Villas for quite a few years now and we keep coming back!!!! We love the great family atmosphere the Villas and the Resort itself has, it's got a "home like" service through all the personnel that work there. It has a great view of the Pacific and the sunsets are spectacular. We highly recommend anyone who wants to experience the best Mazatlan has to offer to stay at "El Rancho" and be pampered by all the personnel there.
A Honeymooner's small paradise.......
I was just married and went to El Rancho Villas, (Mazatlan, Mexico) for my honeymoon. We really loved it. The condo's are gorgeous not mention the grounds, wow so lush and tropical. The food was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was perfect for a honeymoon. Very intimate and romantic. Overlooking the ocean in their adorable resturaunt was so great. I will always remember the sunsets. While we were there we had the pleasure of meeting the owner. A very nice man. I would definately recommend El Rancho
to everyone (couples, families even singles).
We look forward to returning some day.
My husband and I had an amazing week at the El Rancho Villas. The place was private, secluded and it took less then 10 minutes to be downtown. It has it's own beach, restaurant, bar, jacuzzi and pool. The gardens around the villas are breath taking. The jacuzzi is located in the center of a little garden, so you are surrounded by beautiful plants while relaxing in the hot tub. The villas are nicely decorated with 2 full bathrooms. The upstairs master bedroom has a balcony looking down into the living room. We can't wait to go back!
Relax from a stressful lifestyle
We have had a great time here. The kind of place you can get to know your children and your wife again. Forget the stress, El Rancho is a place that you will find great service, an uncrowded beach, fantastic food and people who do their utmost to make sure that you enjoy your stay.
If you want to relax, this is the place to go. My two sons were very impressed that they would get a queen sized bed each and we were in a king! The best sunsets I have ever seen, right in our back yard!
The place is perfect. We loved it. It's away from the noise and crowd.
Its a wonderful place
This facility is a hidden treasure. Though away from the glitz & glitter of Mazatlans popular distance, they are easy to reach by public transportation. The beach units have outstanding view of the water and immediate access to the beach. The small size of the overall facility gives a cozy atmosphere and personal attention is readily available in very few minutes. All villas are two-story and very spacious and comfortable too. We were looking for a little bit of quietness and we found that right here. The resort is close to the shopping and activity centers, but it is still quiet. The staff is friendly and knows you and they are wonderful people.
This place could be so fabulous if it weren't so run down. Lupita is a wonderful cook but some days when we went to the restaurant they didn't have any food. The grounds are beautiful, but the villas themselves are terribly run down. Plumbing and appliances (we did have a new fridge!) need to be replaced- the linens are worn to thread-bare. The staff are all warm and wonderful people, but they can only do so much with what they have to work with. The hot tub was only hot until they ran out of gas (frequently!) Way over-price given the general disrepair!
A quiet and warm place to rest
The staff was totally incredible. Lupita, the cook, makes wonderful food.
Jose, the bartender, serves great drinks. The girls at the front desk were lovely.
The housekeepers just great. Excellent staff. I will recommend to family and friends.
Villas El Ranch--Mazatlan's Best Kept Secret
Comfort, style, and relaxation. That is what Villas El Rancho provides for us every year. The beach-front villas are beautiful and the staff is always so helpful. Can't wait to go back next year. This is definitely the ONLY place to stay in Mazatlan.
