Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay
Ave Ernesto Coppel Campana 201, Camino Al Delfin, Mazatlan, Pacific Coast, 82110, Mexico
Perfect Mazatlan Resort
Oct. 2008: This is one of the nicest resorts we've ever experienced. The pools were wonderful; service efficient and friendly; rooms nicely decorated and nice kitchen. The resort offered great activities that were well-attended.
May 2009: We just had our second trip to Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay and loved it equally to our first trip. There is constant cleaning, painting, touching-up happening by the staff to this nice resort. You feel it is well cared for. In May, Mazatlan is much drier, but the weather was perfect in the high 80's. There weren't as many people staying there due to the Swine Flu scare, but we didn't observe even one person that appeared ill and felt there was really no danger.
The beach in front of the resort is lovely and nice to walk. However, there are a lot of large hidden rock formations in the water, so it is not recommended for swimming. You may take a shuttle to Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan, a sister resort, to swim at their beach. I like the pool better at Emerald Bay though, and there are not a bunch of local vendors on the beach at Emerald Bay to bother you.
NO pets are allowed on the premises of the resort.

Last time I looked, this site didn't have any current reviews of this property. Let me change that. I just got off the plane from 4 days there and will look at booking next year and perhaps buying a resale timeshare...that's how great it was!
The grounds are spectacular, and you forget how poor the surrounding people/country are. Most of the people building this place make $5-$15 per day! Yikes...I sort of feel guilty...but not that much. A few margaritas helps cushion the pain.
The pool is the best in Mexico. Clean...warm...HUGE....and plenty to do. They have activities most of the day...just like a cruise ship. The staff speaks English, although we spoke Spanish to everyone.
The rooms are amazing....our suite was massive and the views are all ocean, so you won't be looking at the mountains.
They are building a new health club, but you can work out and take classes.
We were certain that we wouldn't fall for the timeshare speech, but we wanted the free money and breakfast, so we went. We almost bought on the spot! Of course, I went on-line that night and saw I could buy a two year old timeshare there for less than half the price. Since you get 30 years of life in a timeshare, we think the resale market is a better buy.
Unique Quality: The food and water was all safe, even in Mazatlan, provided you don't buy from carts. In fact, the food at this resort was outstanding...for presentation and amount, and a B for taste.
The service is exceptional throughout the resort!!!!! Everybody is friendly and accomodating.
We left the kids at home, but will bring them next time. They have a kid's club and plenty for them to see and do....even if they swim all day!
We both walked away trying to find major negatives and not being able to do so, came up with two minor ones. I guess the one negative is at night, this place reminded us of Turtle Bay in Hawaii.....quiet and not much to do. Fortunately, the hotel provides an hourly shuttle to their other hotel near downtown Mazatlan, where you hop on a cheap taxi and explore the city. By the way, we walked all over and found it safe and the people warm and friendly.
The second is the ocean....very rough and tough to swim in. Well...the pool is so inviting I didn't miss it that much!
This was a great way to recharge the batteries...what a great resort!!!
Directions: Nuevo Mazatlan
Truly mexican hotel..
We loved our stay at Pueblo Bonito. I would highly recommend this hotel because it felt like a home away from home. The hotel employees were so friendly and accomodating. The prices were reasonable.
Unique Quality: We had a beautiful view of the island just off the beach in front of the hotel. The pool was just out the patio..beautiful, beautiful! The decor throughout the hotel is traditional Mexican. The rooms are spacious, the price was great and the service was excellent! Lots of activities for guests.
Directions: Far end of the Zona Dorada, going towards the new marina
Quiet family location
Condo's, so they have a kitchenette - but also the hard sell. Beautiful hotel - a little out of the way, but not by far. Would probably stay here again cuz it was not loud and rowdy like some of the all inclusive resorts. One bummer part was you had to catch a taxi (golf-cart) ride to shopping area - it was a little too far to walk.
Unique Quality: Beautiful pool and outside resturant.
Pablo Benito is an older hotel, but very nice & well kept.
Unique Quality: Has very nice grounds & pool area. Lots of vegetation, very quaint.
Pueblo Bonito Resort
$160usd/nite in high season or rent from me when I'm not using it. My week is the second Monday in January each year.
Unique Quality: Green Space and birds, exemplary service and friendly people.
More about Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay
We just returned from staying at Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay and it was wonderful. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was very attentative. We took the free shuttle to Pueblo Bonito in the Golden Zone and then a pulmania taxi from there to other places. The weather was hot and humid and we loved it. It was everything we had hoped for and more. We were very impressed with the airport terminal at Mazatlan. On your return if you are hungry be sure and check through the departure area and eat in the Food Court on the second floor before you get on the airplane....it was very clean and reasonably priced.
Recommend a resort??
My husband and I are middle age yet enjoy an active and very busy lifestyle. We are looking for a beachfront, all inclusive resort on Mexico's west coast (away from the summer threat of hurricanes!) that seems to be popular with North American tourists. I'm sorry if this sounds prejudiced, but we have been to so many popularly named resort-chains that attract couples and families from Europe, and unfortunately, the European guests are loud, rude, and generally in everyone's face. Breezes in Curacao was exactly the kind of place we enjoyed - guests were from the States and Canada. So, if anyone can offer ideas of AI resorts, we'd sure like to hear them. Thanks.
RE: Recommend a resort??
There are several all inclusive resorts here. Check out Pueblo Bonito, Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay, El Cid Marina, El Cid, and there are others. We do not get direct hits from Hurricanes in the summer or better to say we have not recieved a direct hit in 20 odd years, but we do get side swiped alot and there are more storms that curve in toward us in the latter summer months of Sept. and Oct. In the summer months there are very few Americans or Canadians here as it is very hot and humid, in the summer we have mostly Mexican Nationals who are on vacation. Hope this helps.
