    Excellent All-Around

    We came to Mazatlán for the marathon on Dec 1 so we wanted a hotel that is not far from the starting line and is in a convenient location, and the Hotel Playa Mazatlan does not disappoint. We love the elevated hot tub overlooking the beach. The beach is very nice and the bands make the ambiance so inviting. We love the location as we can walk to so many shops and restaurant. There are complimentary tours by the hotel - we did the island tour and were very happy with it. Overall we highly recommend this hotel.

    Only game in town

    With few exceptions this hotel will provide the best experience if your looking for a family friendly beach front experience. Cleaning the sand between your toes, everyday gets a little old after awhile. (Smile)

    Highly recommended!!!

    Hotel Playa is excellent choice for families with children with several cool playgrounds and 6 pools. It is great for partying or shopping with its location in the middle of the Golden zone. Hotel is right on the long sandy beach with lounge chairs and enough shade. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Cleaning and maintenance staff is very efficient and all or any problems are very quickly resolved. Reception saff is excellent. Thank you Eduardo from the reception desk for all the help!! Buffet restaurant has great open terrace overseeing ocean and very good selection of foods. The highlight of the stay was dinner at Italian restaurant where Cap. Martin made our dining experience very pleasant and special. Big thanks to all staff at Playa Hotel. Muchas Gracias!! We will be back very soon!!

    Great place to relax while stopping on cruise

    We came into Mazatlan on a cruise and we had been before so we just wanted to relax on the beach for the day. They offer a day pass for all inclusive amenities. Yes even alcohol. It is also just a $3 Uber ride from the cruise terminal. The beach was lovely. The staff was great. The food and drinks were good. We had no complaints and would definitely return!
