      Great place especially for families

      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.

      Amazing vacation


      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!

      That's the place we were looking for


      The place is perfect. We loved it. It's away from the noise and crowd.

      We felt like being at home, the staff is very friendly and they call you by your name. It is not a typical hotel chain, it's more like our home in Mazatlan. The restaurant has a perfect view and the cooker Lupita treated us as family, it was like going to eat dinner with grandma. The food is delicious. Many people say they don't like this place because its away from the popular zones in Mazatlan, but I think it is far enough to relax and close enough to party. The public transportation to the resort is excelent, the Sabalo-Centro buses have air conditioned! and the trip to downtown or the golden zone only costs 8 pesos (less than 80 US cents). Other thing many people dont like is the appearance. It doesn't look like the huge hotel chains, it is decorated in a rustic mexican style, but we were visiting mexico, and we loved it. But the best part of all is that the staff was very nice with us. We'll go back next year.

      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.

      Beautiful but...


      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.

After supper, Barb, Mike & I went for a walk to the Malecón. We had an ice cream & watched the waves roll in & people walking by. Lots of kids on recumbent bikes pedaling back & forth. We spent the rest of the evening chatting out by the ...

      ... Ted is in desperate need of a haircut and his head shaver is not working. He walked right in and had his head clipped, side burns and neck shaved with a straight razor, fuzzy ears and eyebrows attended to and came out looking super “guapo”. A great haircut for 50 pesos. It was such a good deal he thought he should get another.

      Once done and ready to head back to our condo, we walked back to our waiting chariot. We found parking a block ...

      ... The marina provided all the drinks and an endless supply of tasty appetizers. The cost to us was zip, zero, nada! They even awarded a bunch of really nice door prizes. It was a wonderful event and we had fun socializing. As nice as it was, it’s still not the same as being home with family. We are missing that part of the holiday season very much.

      ... at the daunting "Playa Olas Altas" where the surf is really strong and crashes directly on the rocks. However this Zona Dorada doesn't really do it for me. Ok, it has the beautiful beach, it's cleaner, it is sprinkled with Palapa bars and restaurants... but the road along the beach is way too noisy and has a lot of traffic. The sweet smell of exhaust fumes on a morning run...

      A real Mexican port

      ... like blood from a real heart. To the side of the park was an open area that had an enormous Christmas tree at the far end of the area. It was the largest tree in the downtown area, but unlike most City Christmas trees, this was decorated with signs from Coke Cola. Commercialism is alive and well in Mexico. With the budgetary problems of many American cities, this may be a savings that can be utilized during holiday seasons.
