Trip to Mazatlan with: Janelle, Katherine, Pam & Lisa. We stayed at Hotel Playa Mazatlan. It was beautiful an had a great beach. It wasn't all inclusive but we had no problem finding lots of places to go eat at the hotel and off site. The Hotel Pool served the best French Fries! We spent quite a bit of time in the pool because the beaches of …
We took a day trip to Mazatlan with Evelyn and Steve. A couple from Colorado that we met at the campground. Evelyn is a very adventurous woman who drove her motorhome down by herself. Steve is still working and has only three weeks off, he flew down to join her for a while before they drive home.
We took the water taxi from Stone Island to the city, a three minute ride, ...
On the second day of our stay in Mazatlan we went to the Mercado Central. It was quite the place. It easily covered several acres. It is one of the largest markets in Mexico and is housed in a building built with the same technique as the Eiffel Tower. Evidently it's the only one of its kind in the world. It’s over a hundred years old and still going strong. Everything from pigs heads to shoes was being sold as well ...
... to stay because we’d rather avoid sleeping in the car. I have nothing to lose and my evil side knows that guilt is a powerful weapon. Half an hour later I get an email recommending a B&B called “Casa de Leyendas”. I go to their web site and the place looks awesome but I can’t find the exact address or the complete phone number, only a partial one (Mexico’s phone area codes work in mysterious ways). I send an email, praying that they ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Playa Mazatlan
Like the style and look
A lovely hotel, not too modern not a tall building, we loved the old hacienda style
It is with a certain reluctance that I write about Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico, as I/we, my wife and I, hope that most tourists opt for other locales and leave this wonderful city of integrity to those whom reside there and to those whom truly appreciate the city's beauty and uniqueness among the beach site options on the Mexican Riviera.
The best in town
We have spend many glorious days at the Playa Hotel, just watching the famous Mazatlan Sunsets, sipping tropical drinks fron the veranda at the Playa is worth the stay there. This was our 5 th time and will be back for more.
The staf is wonderful, the hotel spatkling clean & beautiful, grounds marvelous,excelent service, delicious food. What else can I say, been coming to Mazatlan and the Playa Hotel for the last 15 years.
My Mom and I went on a wonderful vacation to Mazatlan and stayed at the Playa Mazatlan Hotel. I would highly recommend the Playa for an affordable, fun and relaxing vacation. The hotel staff work hard for their tips and are very friendly, the rooms are super clean, the pools and the rest of the hotel are very nice and clean as well. If you want to party it up, it's a great place as well (Valentinos night club and Gringo Lingo are only a short walk away). Be sure to get tickets for the Playas Fiesta on Friday nights.There is some great shopping downtown, but some of the best souvenirs/items are sold right on the beach. Everything you could desire is in walking distance and if you don't feel like walking the little taxis are very affordable. The drinks on the private beach are great and the snack bars have great food (especially the one by the pool). I definitely plan on going back to the Playa. The only gripes I have are that the main Restaurant has terrible food, the wind and weather can be cool at times and the noise from the clubs at night can be a bit much. Now for a little name dropping, I would have to say that Panchos Restaurant is one of the best little Restaurants in the Sinaloa area (it is right on the ocean) and The Panama Cafe downtown is great for breakfast and pastries.If you are on a budget head over to Sams Club in one of the taxis and get a tourist pass. Here you can pick up some really inexpensive alcoholic drinks (I recommend Mazatlans own "Pacifico" beer) and just keep them in your room on ice. Sams is also great for snacks and beach toys among other things. Be sure to pick up a few bottles of inexpensive Kahlua to bring home, and enjoy yourself, you will not regret booking a trip to the Playa Mazatlan Hotel!!!
Just returned on 04-11-03 from an awesome week in Mazatlan at the Playa Hotel. This was our first trip to Mazatlan. We found a good deal and, before booking, read all the reviews here and at other sites. The other reviewers didn't lie - the Playa is a wonderful place. It's very, VERY clean, the staff is both nice and helpful. The private beach was great - kept the locals hawking their wares at a decent distance so we could rest, read, relax, and enjoy some 'nummy umbrella drinks. There are also pools and hottubs to help you relax even further. In addition, the location could not have been any better. It's easy walking distance to several great resturaunts, shopping, and other beaches. Be sure to try the little bar/restaurant near the pool at the hotel - wed didn't stop there until later in the week but the juices and food are wonderful. I highly recommend the Playa to anyone heading to Mazatlan - I loved it!
We have stayed at the Playa for 17 years and have always enjoyed this resort. Beautiful gardens, awesome beach front, great people. You are treated as if you the most important person, like an old friend returning to visit.
I am preparing for my 5th visit to Mazatlan and the Playa Hotel. I cannot compare it to any of the other hotels in Mazatlan, because I don't want to switch. It is one of the oldest resort hotels in Mazatlan, and definitely the supreme in service and cleanliness. It has a private beach and such great immenities, that you really never need to leave the hotel. It has the ambiance and old time service of quality hotels in the United States of years ago.
Didin't Think of Anyplace Else
For my wife and I this will be our 3rd trip to Mazatlan, and 3rd stay at THE PLAYA MAZATLAN, this time with our 11 year old daughter.
Our friends joining us have been in Mazatlan, and stayed at the PLAYA many more times, (6-7) and when it came to make our reservations, we all decided on the PLAYA. We've had great service each and every time & the locations is virtualy perfect. We also have my brother in law, wife and daughter joining us this year.
In the past there were others in our group, some have stayed here for at least 15 years back.
Hotel Playa Mazatlan -- An Excellent Place to Stay
While I cannot compare the Hotel Playa Mazatlan to other Mazatlan resorts or hotels for the mere fact I have been to Mexico but once, I have stayed in hundreds of hotels around the US and in other countries as well. The quality and level of service I received while at the Playa Mazatlan were by far superior to other hotels. The staff went out of its way to ensure my comfort and satisfaction. I would--and will--stay there again.
