Best beach vacation ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we drove through the gates of this stunning property, we fell in love with it. It was like being transported to another world when we walked into the architecturally unique and artistically decorated Villa. Located right on the beach we enjoyed lots of strolls along the waves, admiring the perfect views of the beautiful sunrises and sunsets. The owner Silvia is very warm and hospitable and made sure we were always comfortable. She also gave us lots of excellent suggestions on things to do, places to visit, the very best restaurant recommendations, spa ideas etc. in Mazatlán all of which are a short drive away. The staff are friendly, efficient and helpful and we can't think of anything that wasn't perfect about vacationing here. We would highly recommend the Sandcastle Villa!

I was amazed with the beauty of the sandcastle and the attention to detail making it extremely inviting. The location was perfect. Only minutes from restaurants and shops. I loved the privacy of the property. The beach was beautiful!!! Perfect for long walks along the waves. The sandcastle provided many activities for us such as tennis, mini golf and swimming in the pool/hot tub. I highly recommend anyone looking for the perfect getaway checkout the sandcastle!!!!

Sandcastle Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Can't even begin to express what a lavish, relaxing and enjoyable time we had at Sandcastle. Sylvia, the owner is so lovely and very knowledgeable about mazatlan and the surrounding area. Her staff are dillegent, friendly and trustworthy (add hilarious as well!)

The bedrooms are exquisitely decorated, in fact every corner of the property has some sort of artistic detail, splash of colour, and Mexican ambience. The kitchen met all of our needs, and morning coffee on the second balcony always started the day off right!

The entire property is maintained beautifully, in particular, the pool, the gardens, the tennis courts and all the kitchen amenities.

Can't recommend highly enough this exquisite and comfortable property.

Ps-The small restaurant next door has the best breakfast!! I recommend "El Sol" and a Caesar! Delicious!

Comes as advertised! Really great villa!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week there with our family of 14, ages 2 to 56. It really is a fantastic place. Between the tennis courts, putting greens, beach and pool our family was quite entertained for the week. The staff was great in arranging everything from taxis, to arranging for catering to bringing us fresh schrimp and even making our beds each morning and cleaning up the kitchen. The Villa really couldn't have been any better.

The only downside to this place is that since it's outside the resort area the airport taxis take major advantage of that. We had one group arrive with 8 adults and they charged us 950 pesos for a van and then we had a family of 2 adults with 4 little ones come a bit later who were charged 1200 pesos. That is not this beautiful Villas fault but it would be good to know beforehand how much it cost which is why I put it in this review.

The regular red pickup taxis which can take 8 adults cost us around 200 pesos one way to get pretty much anywhere in Mazatlan.

We have just returned from a fabulous week in Mazatlan at the Sandcastle. I must say I was a bit concerned that this place could live up to the Internet photos and five star reviews....but I am happy to report it's even BETTER in person! It is the most amazing place I've ever been! We had a beautiful beach almost to ourselves, a hot tub and salt water pool, a tennis court, basket ball hoop, a mini putt golf course, and the nicest most helpful staff ever. Whether we wanted shrimp for dinner or a taxi to town, Rafael never let us down. Cindy worked hard every day to make our accommodations clean and organized, and even made our beds every day. Alejandro kept the gardens immaculate and quietly worked behind the scenes so the landscaping was gorgeous. We are SO spoiled!

We usually go to a resort when we travel to Mexico, but this year we decided to have our family reunion in a more private setting. BEST DECISION EVER! The Sandcastle has given us some awesome memories, and we are very grateful for the opportunity to share this unbelievable place. Thank you Silvia, Rafael, Cindy and Alejandro!!!

Absolutely breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our dream wedding here back in November 2016. Our amazing hosts, as well as the staff couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful. The villa itself and the grounds are so beautiful. It's like walking into a fairytale when you come thru the gates. The pictures can't even touch the true beauty of this place. You just have to see it for yourself.

The beds are all super comfy and the house itself is truly a castle. We felt like a King and Queen and our wedding party had the time of their lives.

The beach is right out the back gate, off the pool deck and the sunsets are breathtaking.

The Surfs Up cafe next door has the most amazing burger I've ever had and the breakfasts are pretty awesome too.

We plan on spending many anniversaries and holidays here. Thanks again to Silvia & Pieter for helping make our wedding so memorable. We will be back again year after year :) cheers
