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!
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.
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.

... from Phoenix face timing. They looked like they were having a good time there too! Sorry to be missing being with them. We had a nice BBQ chicken supper with fresh potatoes & veggies. 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 ...
... flat and not a lot of traffic going our way. We passed orange, papaya and mango orchards, lots and lots of cattle and lots of jungle growth on both sides of the road.
We finally found the turn off to the town and immediately found that the road was a bit more exciting with potholes and lots of rough spots. Now that's the type of Mexican road that we know and love. The beauty of a scooter is that it makes dodging such hazards much easier if you slow ...
... the entire run. You could have water skied the entire way the water was so flat. We were feeling kinda sheepish about making the run when there was no wind until we talked to the other boats in the marina. Unlike us, nearly everyone else got to sail but the wave action they experienced was very uncomfortable. One gal had been thrown across their boat so violently she saw stars and was barely able to help with standing her watch. Her ...
... After 3 hours in the car my bladder is about to explode. I stubbornly refused to stop at gas stations because we don't need gas yet… and mostly because I'm not thrilled to find out what Mexican gas station toilets look like from the inside. At this point postponing is no longer an option so I pull over on the highway shoulder (that’s hard to find) near a tree (even harder): in the desert sun I would probably get terminal sunburn by the time my bladder ...

They do tell us there is a slightly cheaper ferry though, so Yannick investigates that option while Mel stumbles upon a place to buy 2 kilos (about 4 1/2 lbs) of shrimp for a pretty good price. Exploratory mission complete, we head back to the hotel to prepare dinner. Everyone has their task: buy groceries, de-shell and de-poop shrimp, dice veggies, squeeze limes, marinate ingredients, ...
