Historical Traveler Reviews Costa de Oro Beach Hotel Mazatlan
Costa De Oro Outstanding Service
The Costa de Oro was fabulous. I am a single mother travelling with my 10 year old son. It was very safe, secure, the staff were outstanding. I will definately go back. Loved it!
Fantastic Room & Staff
We had a fabulous suite with an ocean view. We used the hotel safe for our valuables and had no problem what so ever. The staff by the pool were fabulous! I wish I could have brought them home with me. We ate breakfast at the hotel restuarant and they were great! Beautiful views, great people, we could not have asked for a better first time trip to Mexico. I would advise on getting the suite rather than the smaller regular rooms though. We can't wait to go back and experience more of Mexico. Treat them with the respect and kindness they deserve and you will be more than rewarded for this!
Too Loud for Families
The room in the tower that we had was nice, but in general the place was a bit too noisey. We were there during spring break, so we blamed the noise level on all the kids. The noise was not a problem until about 2am, then it got old. However, the pool and service at the pool were outstanding. We were on the top floor in the tower and loved the room and view.
La Buena Vida
We have been going to Mazatlan every December since 1996. We have stayed at a number of hotels in Mazatlan (Vidafel, Royal Villas, Luna Palace, Fiesta Inn & Costa de Oro). We have had enjoyable stays at each of these hotels but the Costa de Oro is the best of the best in our minds. We are somewhat biased as we own a timeshare at the hotel but we find the staff are very friendly, the hotel is old but clean and their timeshare people are very pleasant. We have many friends in Mazatlan, most of whom we met at the Costa de Oro.
We have found that in Mexico you sometimes need to be patient, pleasant and persistant in order to get problems fixed and the Costa de Oro is no different.
Michael & Shirley
We were extremely disappointed in our room at the Costa de Oro. It was filthy. The bathroom was disgusting. We took showers in dirty, ankle-deep water. The sink hadn't been cleaned and still had hair from previous guests stuck to it. We were unable to sleep because of the noise of children yelling and running up and down the halls at 2 a.m. The front desk wouldn't do anything. The towels cabana at the pool was either closed or out of towels. Our room was at the end of a hallway with no lighting outside of our door. No amenities in the room -- no safe for valuables. By US standards I would rate it a 'dive.' We ended up buying a timeshare in a nicer resort just so that we could have three enjoyable nights and a guaranteed decent place to stay when we go back each year. We love Mazatlan but think the Costa de Oro was disgusting.
One of the best in Mazatlan
One of the best in Mazatlan. Rooms are really nice and there restaurants serve great food. They don't bug you about time shares like the rest down there. Close to everything.
Absolutely the BEST
The best hotel I have ever stayed at! There's nothing like overlooking the ocean every day of your relaxing vacation. Great food at the poolside bar...GREAT drinks. No reason to leave the Costa de Oro!
Paradise at a great price!
My family and I have been traveling to Mazatlan for many years. We have stayed at the Costa De Oro for at least 10 years. We Love it! It is the best hotel in Mazatlan. You can participate in alot of activities or just sit poolside and relax. The atmosphere is fun, beautiful and the hotel staff is outstanding. I would highly recommend this hotel to all.
I absolutely fell in love with this hootel. I travel frequently and this is by far one of the best I have ever been lucky enough to stay at. THe view is absolutely gorgeous. The staff is incredibly friendly. Your RIGHT ON THE BEACH!!! Snorkeling, parasailing, and jet skiing are just steps away. I definately reccomend this hotel.
we stayed there 4 times already. It is a fun place, great pool,great rooms on the Ocean and most of all the People there are great. Lots of Activities.

We had lunch while there - Dad had breaded fried mahi mahi and I had quesadillas. The restaurant is right on the beach and the water was SO warm. No rocks or shells to worry about on the ocean floor either, although the sand was really hot! There was a warm, soft breeze to keep us cool while we relaxed under the restaurant’s shady trees.
... the waves. We took a pulmonia home & got into a parade on the way back. What fun waving & cheering as we got home. ..... the others & our landlord were watching & were surprised to see us in the parade. Fun!! Hang by the pool & Spagetti supper. Started to rain just before bed so had to come in & visit in the living room. To bed by 10:00 pm. Planning to go in the am to climb El Faro lighthouse ...
... we bought it from put on, were not new at all. They're 2009. Evidently they sold her tires that had been on the shelf a few years, because we saw the receipt--she really did buy them in 2012. The things you learn.
Anyway, chuckholes make us a little more nervous now, knowing our tires aren't in the pristine shape we thought they were.
Put all back together now, we drove south as far as Mazatlan and a RV park called Tres ...

We happened to stumble across 800 day old turtles being released into the sea as part of a conservation programme, really cool as the little fellas struggled to make it to the water all flippers and shells. Unfortunately we learnt that they only about 30 would survive!! Unfortunately tequila is becoming a nightcap and sipped! When in Rome ..... I'm not sure exactly what it is that takes a hold of me when ...

Yannick and Shirley have another rest day. We check out the other harbor in La Paz and ride our bicycles around to explore the town. For lunch, we have a repeat of yesterday's lunch: the most awesome fish tacos yet. This place is so good and cheap, we decide it will be our lunch spot for the rest of the days we ...
