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. 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; 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.

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.

Excellent resort!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Mazatlan and we loved it!

The condo is nicely updated and very well equipped. It is in a nice quiet area, but a bit far from the historical downtown area if you plan to spend much time there. It's a 30-40 minute bus ride, but only costs 10 pesos.

The resort was well maintained and very clean. The staff were wonderful!! The food and drinks were really good (better than any of the all inclusives we've been to in Mexico).

We loved the beach. It was clean and you could walk for miles!

The historical downtown was wonderful. A really great place to enjoy the architecture, along with unique shops and fantastic restaurants and bars.

Clean and quiet property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our 7 day stay in this condo very much. Irma was very pleasant and easy to communicate with. The suite is very clean and comfortable. Would be nice to have dedicated internet in the suite as the internet was only accessible from the balcony. However, internet very good in the palapa area and the pool, so not a huge issue. This is a perfect place for a quiet, relaxing vacation. Also, very easy access to the public bus system if you want to spend time in the city or Golden zone. Thank you for letting us enjoy your lovely condo! Mike and Lisa Mitchell

Best place we've stayed in Mazatlan!

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Mazatlan for many years and this is one of the most comfortable places we have stayed. This smallish and very well kept resort is located 5 miles north of the Golden Zone which means it's quiet at night. It's easily accessible by bus, taxi or pulmonia. We walked down the beach most days - about a 20 minute walk - to the Cerritos Point retail area where there is a great coffee shop, good restaurants as well as souvenir shops. When we went there at night, we usually hopped on the bus for the one mile return trip. We appreciated the 24 hour security at the entrances and the friendly, competent and hard working staff. There is also an onsite restaurant here which is a wonderful option when you don't feel like cooking or going farther afield to eat out.

The unit is very, very comfortable with a well-equipped and modern kitchen, good a/c and a deck with terrific beach and ocean views. We are birdwatchers and so we spent hours viewing wildlife from the deck. We saw 85+ species of birds while in the area without trying very hard and saw bottlenose dolphins for our deck most days. We love the Cerritos area of Mazatlan because it is close to Estero del Yugo, an estuary about a 5-6 minute walk from the entrance to Costa Bonita. The beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of extra linens and beach towels, and inexpensive access to a laundry room. We used the pool every day and really appreciated how well maintained and clean it is.

There is a nice community of residents and owners here as well as a few renters like us. One surprise was an onsite massage therapist. What a terrific amenity. My one hour massage was 300 pesos! We can highly recommend this lovely spot.
