Costa de Oro Beach Hotel

... not for the faint of heart. Besides the dirt and grime, the toilet facilities were either a bucket on board or a climb down a ladder and a walk across the boat yard. Ando f course if we chose the bucket option the trip down the ladder was only temporarily postponed. The sinks also could not be used so all tooth brushing required the same ladder trip. When it ...
... them to us when we weren't staying at their hotel. Oh yeah. We're in. Next day us and Bob and Donna go in for a scrumptious buffet breakfast, get our free tickets and then we have the day to wander about while we wait for the festivities to begin. We ended up down at the central market again --these markets draw us like a magnet, and to old town, the Plazuela Machado, for pictures of some more of those gigantic paper machet puppets. Love a town in a party ...
... game night. We were invited to join the ladies and had a fine meal. In the morning, we were once again treated to a fantastic breakfast before doing some last minute shopping for sun screen and insect repellent for our trip north. Our backpacks were ready to go and we caught the overnight luxury ETN bus to Mazatlan at 5:30 pm. We arrived in Maz, the "Pearl of the Pacific", at around 4 a.m. There was a stop in Leon and a stop Guadalajara which allowed us a little stretching ...
... re in Mazatlan you have to go to Yoko - best sushi we've had in ages!!
Two nights in one place with the internet does mean however that you have a bit of time to do some catch up and forward planning - guess what there's been a fresh dumping of snow in Arizona guys - anyone want to go ski-ing? Adios Mexico y gracias, estamos mucho divertido
... one that I had heard of. There is a lighthouse here that is the second highest in the world so I decided to walk there in the midday heat, not realising how far it was. I was absolutely drowning in my own sweat! Part of the way there a Mexican boy stopped and said hello and offered me a ride on his bycicle. I thought why not and sat on the crossbar. He asked if he could accompany me up to the ligthouse. So we chatted in Spanish all the way up and back down. ...

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.
