The Playa

The architecture

The Hotel Playa Mazatlan’s low-rise colonial architecture and rustico Mexican details transport you back to the charm and luxury of old-time Mexico, with bright-colored tile, arched doorways and arcades, hidden gardens, bubbling fountains, cobblestone walkways and colorful art and sculpture.

The covered patio outside the lobby is home to a line of traditional rocking chairs from Concordia – a nearby mountain town known for its hand-made wood furniture – perfect for sitting and watching the world go by.

Our lush tropical landscaping includes a host of brilliant flowers, orange-flowering tabachin trees and colorful bougainvillea vines climbing to wrought-iron balconies, with charming fountains and ponds full of lavender and pink lotus flowers, water lilies and schools of colorful koi darting here and there.

Graced by towering palms and gentle surf, the Hotel Playa Mazatlan’s property stretches across more than a 1/6 mile of sandy beach on the Sea of Cortez, just south of the Tropic of Cancer. Spectacular sunsets are part of the daily routine, and our clusters of palm-thatched palapas lining the oceanfront offer the perfect place to sit, relax and simply enjoy.

As the very first hotel built in Mazatlan’s Gold Zone 55 years ago, the Hotel Playa Mazatlan sets the standard for excellence. Many of our guests return year after year, now bringing their own families to the resort playground where they themselves vacationed as children.
