Bedrooms 2
Space 1,015 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4

Welcome to our home! We have been traveling to Mazatlan for over 25 years and it had always been our dream to someday own and eventually retire and live in Mazatlan. We decided to purchase at the Costa Bonita in 1999 because of its location and fantastic beach. The wonderful thing about the beach is that when the tide is down it is flat, and there are no rocks or kelp. It is great for those who like to look for shells and sand dollars. All the units at the Costa Bonita are privately owned so you won’t find all of the ‘resort-type’ amenities like Para-sailing and sailboat rentals. These activities can be found at other locations nearby and the concierge can make booking for you. The trade off for not being in a hotel, timeshare, resort, is the quiet, un-crowded, peaceful beach!

You will find our recently remodeled unit with central air conditioning very accommodating and comfortable. If you prefer the ocean breeze and the sound of ocean waves, leave the windows and patio door open as they are all screened. The kitchen has all the amenities you will need with all new Frigidaire stainless steel appliances. The kitchen is equipped with everything you’ll need; Chef’s classic nonstick 11-piece Cuisinart Cookware Set – Ice Maker, coffee maker, toaster, blender, dishes, utensils. The water in our condo is filtered/purified so you can drink it right out of the tap. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo accommodates 4 very comfortably and is furnished with a King bed in the master and a Queen bed in the guest bedroom. Both bedrooms are furnished with new pillow top mattress and new pillows. Each bedroom has a flat screen TV connected via satellite with 42 channels. The bedrooms also have ceiling fans, in addition there is a osculating fan in each bedroom. After a long day at the beach you can relax on the reclining leather couch and rocking recliner chair when watching the 48” flat screen TV with surround sound. We also have a library of DVD’s and games. If you bring your computer you can connect it directly to internet using a Ethernet cable otherwise wireless WiFi is available throughout the resort. There is also a wall safe in the condo for your use.

When sitting on our patio you will be able to enjoy the view from the 3rd floor overlooking the pool and enjoying the view of the ocean. If you are lucky you may see dolphins or porpoise. Because of the location of our condo you will be enjoying a beautiful sunset nightly so be sure to have your camera.

Simply beautiful!!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire stay was just about perfect! How can you beat the beautiful view, vegging on the beach and swimming in the ocean and pool! The staff were so helpful, they made you feel like a good friend. The only issue we had was someone near us constantly smoked a cigar from 5 to 10 pm every day so we were not able to keep our patio door open, and other owners rent just for the weekend to families with several small children. As kids will be kids, the screaming and jumping in the pool became quite loud. But that was just for 3 days, then the quite returned. It was so handy having the restaurant right there. You could eat your meals in the outside dining area, or on the beach on a lounge chair. The food was great, and so were the prices. Overall, we loved it, and hope to rent again!

Beautiful condo and resort!

  • 5 of 5

Costa Bonita is a beautiful resort and very well maintained. All of the staff are very friendly and so accommodating. The Palapa Bar and Restaurant has excellent food (and drinks)!! The condo has been completely remodeled and is beautiful. The kitchen has all of the cookware, dishes, and utensils you could possibly need. The master bedroom and second bedroom both have unbelievably comfortable mattresses. The master has an awesome walk-in closet with a safe, and a beautiful new master bath. Well stocked with all the linens you need plus lots of beach towels. Loved the peace and quiet of the complex and the beautiful sandy beach. Seems like you could walk forever! I might add the view from the condo is perfect - watched many beautiful sunsets right from our deck. In fact, we love it so much have already booked for next year. Jim and Kim are awesome to work with, as is Irma, and all of the Costa Bonita staff. Thanks to all of you for making this an amazing vacation!!

Better than home!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic! The kitchen is remarkable in that it has every imaginable necessity, from plastic containers for leftovers to nonperishable foods and seasoning (and alcohol!) in the pantry. The appliances are new and the dishwasher is so quiet you can't even hear running. The furniture is comfortable and inviting. The televisions are big, get good reception, and there are plenty channels to choose from. Cleaning supplies and utensils are easily accessible, or you can hire someone if you are so inclined. Also remarkable was how quiet the complex is. No loud BINGO games, music or "rah-rah-let's do this" group activities. The other residents were kind, friendly, and inclusive The view from the balcony and the master bedroom couldn't be more perfect. We were there for a month, and if given the opportunity, we would stay there for six.

Looking to relax - you won't find better.

  • 5 of 5

We left here wishing we could stay forever. Pleasant on every level. This resort, and this unit in particular, checks all the boxes. The condo could not be better appointed, or more comfortable. Everything is "top shelf". The resort staff is very conscientious and professional. The resort grounds are beautifully maintained, onsite restaurant/bar excellent and the beach is gorgeous. We will return.

We love this location, this condo and this unit.

  • 5 of 5

By location, I mean away from the hustle and bustle of the more commercialized, funky parts of Mazatlan. Here, it is just white sand beaches with an occasional resort and some great dining options within a sandy stroll. (STRONGLY recommend Sr. Lionso's for dinners and the Looney Bean for breakfasts--both about a mile north up the beach.)

By condo, I mean Costa Bonita, which is not a soaring high rise that sticks you 12 or 15 floors up in the sky, but a low laying, U shaped building of six floors where most units have an up-close view of the pool and the ocean, 24/7. And the people & restaurant are laid back but on top of things.

And by this unit, I mean 304 A. Closer to the beach than another one we stayed in, brightly painted in yellow, and with two excellent beds and a TV in every room. This unit also has wi-fi and is VERY well outfitted and stocked.

We will be back.
