Profile: Zona Dorada

Zona Dorado, the golden zone, features luxury hotels about a 15-minute taxi ride from Mazatlan’s downtown. The Sea Shell City Museum has a kaleidoscopic collection of intricate and beautiful shells, and you can buy a variety of handicrafts and trinkets made from these natural ornaments.

In the evenings, you can party at the Fiesta Land complex, a surreal castle built in Moorish style and home to an exciting selection of bars, restaurants, and clubs. With its 3 floors of pulsating music and frenetic dancing, Valentino’s is the place to let your hair down into the wee hours.

    I LOVED this hotel it is in the perfect location, the staff is great (a little strict) but very nice, rooms are clean and traditional so you feel like you are in Mexico! They have so many things to do onsite and I refuse to stay anywhere else from now on.

    Great stay, great views, great value

    Spent 6 nights at the hotel while visiting one of my best friends in the city, and while I did not spend a lot of time inside the hotel (besides sleeping) it was a very enjoyable experience. The staff was helpful, the room was very comfortable and the view was spectacular. The facilities, as well as the beach in front of the hotel, are very well maintained, and the restaurant serves good food (the complementary breakfast is great). The pricing was very affordable for the experience as well. The only complaint I have is the restrictiveness of having access to the hotel. Though I was told that the restaurant was open to the public, on one occasion my friend (who lives in the city) was told that he could not enter even to use the restroom for no particular reason, though it may have been because it was late at night. Overall I was very satisfied by my stay, and I hope to be returning in the near future to see more of beautiful Mazatlan!

  • 6.0.Good

    Great views & beach area. Older hotel. Construction & remodeling going on.. The noise went on from 8am to 8pm. Not very relaxing while in the rooms listening to all the hammering and other noise. Pools were nice but cold. Wait staff was very attentive. The breakfast buffet was pretty good. You have to get into a bunch of different lines to get served. Check in was fast. Especially since the front desk gave us no additional info on the hotel. No info on restaurants or shows. No schedule or map. We found out on our 3rd day that they had a TV channel with hotel info. The lettering was very small & the screens changed very fast, before you had a chance to read it. Over all we would not stay here again. We decided to stay an extra day in Mazatlan but chose to find a different place to stay.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Perfect location. Staff is always friendly, helpful and amazingly prompt. The beach is great. The hotel is old so I don’t expect perfection in some things. I’ve been going here every year for 10 years. Sometimes twice a year. Outside tables under palapas still need more attention to cleanliness and still wobble a lot. The bands with the tubas were overwhelming this year. It was like battle of the bands and disrupting. The dining room was always immaculate and the servers in the restaurant and on the beach are superb. Would never stay anywhere else.
