Fabulous viewing of the pounding waves and an awesome pacific sunset! Service is dynamic, and ready for your demands! Margaritas 2 for 1 until 6PM! Quesadillas are fresh and fabulous. Smoked marlin tacos -very tasty! But he fresh cut house PAPAS FRITAS are unbelievable!! More than one repeat!!
We had a spectacular time at this beautiful resort. Staff are fabulous and one would really miss out if they do not eat breakfast and enjoy the lovely dinner menu as well. It is close to everything either walking or cab if you are unable to walk. Great pool side games and so much fun painting the ceramics. Excellent location for long walks on the beach.
Went during August 2017 & it was HOT & HUMID!!! I don't really recommend going during summer due to heat & humidity but that's our schedule problem. The entire town is getting a facelift in preparation for some kind of official tourism conference type thing (taking place sometime in 2018) so the town will be nicer in late 2018. This resort (we went through timeshare) in small but beautiful. They have a very small workout room but we just walked the beach or swam in the pool (in mornings) for exercise. We enjoyed the pool from 8-10 in morning- water was warm but still very nice - only had approx. 10 other people in pool during that time on any day, very easy to enjoy. Never had a problem finding 2 chairs together. Room was authentic & very nice (concrete couch with cushions). Had a problem with A/C unit in first room, so they tried to repair it, then brought in 2 portable A/C units, then moved us to a different room when one came available. Staff was very nice! Asked about timeshare tour but not too pushy. Beautiful property. Easy access to beach - some folks went in beach but I wouldn't take children or poor swimmers into water there. Big waves and jellyfish warning flags were out. Small store on property, has just enough supplies available & not crazy overpriced- very convenient. Overall, a nice, small resort.
I have been an owner since 1999 and NEVER before has money gone missing during a stay with Vacation Internationale. It just felt like the blows kept coming starting with the general manager Ignacio C Añeso Vizcarra and his lack of compassion. Instead of apologizing that a crime took place he immediately defended his employees and asked why we didn't use the safe deposit box? He said that money has never been taken on his property in all of the years he's been there. He was unwilling to do anything to alleviate the financial burden encountered. Mazatlan Torres will feed your entire group a free brunch for six people so that you will be lured to buy or upgrade a timeshare but he wouldn't even offer a $10 gift card for the restaurant! He found us later to tell us The investigation was incomplete because the head of security Gabriel said we wouldn't let him look through the whole penthouse which was the first lie told. The second was that the money was hidden away in an envelope when in fact it was out in the open. There was no room for misinterpretation as one of my friends is fluent in Spanish being that his mother is from Panama. There were five $100 bills in the passport on the nightstand and two went missing. Ignacio also let it slip that theft was a rare occurrence. So which is it? Does theft never happen or does it rarely happen? I can speak for the integrity of my group of friends and family that were with me. I cannot speak of the integrity of Mazatlan Torres! I will not be returning there and I urge everyone to reconsider this location as a vacation destination.
Well dear travelers, this is a Time Share ONLY Exclusively accessed facility. BUT OMG it is spectacular! I can and will say many many good things about Torres Mazatlan. Yet only one thing i didn't like. The tiny sugar ants up as far as 4th floor. There is nothing they can do about them, but gee no signs or bug traps or abatement seemed apparent. We just kept the counters and floors wiped of juice ect.... EVERYTHING ELSE IS PERFECT AT TORRES MAZATLAN. The place is guared like fort Knox. If you aren't official, you don't get in. ALL the staff is spectacular. Everyone who works there seems well taken care of and thus they take of us! Everything is beyond clean, well manicured grounds, the view from every building from every angle is spectacular. The restaurant is AMAZING! We went TUNA fishing and brought back 20lbs extra for our favorite staff members AND the Restaurant cooked up a HUGE SPECIAL Tuna platter for us complete with sauces and grilled Veggies. I even invited my dentist and his wife (as I was partially down there for some major dental work). They graciously let them through the gate, (You have to give them a Heads up in advance for special guests via the front desk who informs the gate) Yes yes the dinner Beach side was THE BEST Their are a handful of "pre approved" beach vendors also who hover near the beach entrance. My favorite was "Jesus the Sunglasses guy." He is funny as ever! A couple guys show up every morning with big fat fresh (or freshly thawed) shrimp. Yeah they claim its off the local boats but the season was closed but who cares. They were HUGE shrimp and yes you can barter for them also. If you have a kitchen suite then there is a little store onsite which for as small as it is carries most everything you need without have to take the cab to Wal-mart miles/kilometers away. Items like butter and spices to cook the shrimp to ALL beer, bevs, liquor, sun lotions and other medi-potions, tourist trinkets or gift for back home, towels shirts and well just about every basic item a vacationer needs on a whim. Great tennis court, there is a smoking Cabana which (THANK GOD) Keeps the smokers away from the pool. They have a nice towel service with nearby Activity concierge and Massage outdoor tent too. Separate negotiation. Book Early. There is a small gym onsite and a storage room for luggage in case of lag time between check out and Flight time. BTW, plan A LOT of extra time to get to/from the Airport. Torres is quite a way up the beach from town and of course the airport. I could never figure out WHY the heck they built the airport so oh SO far away from town. Listen, Torres Mazatlan is THE BEST PLACE! Its not to small and not too big. Forget RUI, to big and overpriced. I met a fellow Duck at the pool. Inside secret. He finds people who can't use their time that year and he chips in or pays heir "Maintenance fees'. Then he stays in Perfect paradise too! Okay, our little secret! Anyhow AMAZING PLACE, hope to be oh so fortunate to go again.
Stayed at this lovely beachfront resort for a week and had a great time. Beach was long, very walkable, clean, and great waves. Large pool surrounded by lounges and palapa, and a nice lawn area if you want some quiet time too. Room was well equipped and clean and had a fabulous view. Ate breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and food was delicious. For those who don't drink alcohol they make a killer limonada. Drank them every day around the pool. Service was outstanding and we will be back!
This was not a destination that was high up on our list of must do's but man were we pleasantly surprised! We had the opportunity to spend a week at Torres Mazatlan through our timeshare as it was a 'cheap option' for a quick getaway. We were greeted by super friendly and accommodating staff and a large 1 bedroom condo style room with a beautiful ocean view. Well laid out resort with 4 buildings all facing the ocean. The Palapa restaurant and bar had great menu choices, very reasonably priced with something for everyone. Local Mexican fare, burgers, sandwiches, lovely fresh salads and happy hour twice a day where drinks were 2 for 1. We typically stay at all inclusive hotels when in Mexico so we were not sure what to expect eating at the same restaurant for the week. Again, pleasantly surprised with good quality, great choices and reasonable prices. Loved the shrimp dishes - shrimp stuffed avocado was amazing as were the imperial shrimp- yum! Grounds were lovely offering a pool with loads of seating options, restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating, BBQ's, laundry, tennis courts, running track, activities area, patio area with convenience store and a gorgeous sandy beach where you can walk at least 30 minutes in either direction. The location is very central with 3 buses that run directly into the Golden Zone consistently - great for those wishing to check out the sites, shopping and restaurants. I highly recommend this hotel and we will be back! Thank you to all the incredible staff that made us feel so welcome!
The accommodations of this resort are very comfortable and very well designed. The condos are well stocked with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. The location is great and easy accessible to transportation. We really like going to this resort.
This trip, there were five of us and we had two 2-bedroom units in Tower C instead of the Penthouse we had last time. The Penthouses are definitely better but that's to be expected. The king size beds in the 2-bedrooms are every bit as comfortable as the ones in the Penthouse. The units are very roomy. The bedrooms are large with a lot of closet space and lots of drawer space in the dresser. Each unit also has two bathrooms, one off one of the bedrooms and the other across the hall from the second bedroom. There was a spacious living room with a dining table and 4 chairs. The kitchen wasn't large but it was lots big enough. It's fully stocked with dishes, utensils, etc, and has a full sized fridge and gas range, plus a microwave and a full sized dishwasher. The counter has 4 tall chairs so you could easily eat there too. I missed having a washer and dryer in the 2-bedroom unit like in the Penthouse but I did laundry twice in the laundromat beside the office and that worked fine. I totally got spoiled by the Penthouse. The only real complaint I have about the 2-bedroom unit is the living room furniture. The chairs and couch are extremely uncomfortable. The couch is made of cement and has a long cushion on the seat and three cushions along the back. The seat cushion slides forward all the time and I was forever adjusting it. If they could find some way to make it stay there, that would be a big help. The two armchairs are huge but are very square and not comfortable to sit in as well. We found that most times, we sat on the moulded plastic balcony chairs instead of sitting inside. The vacation was a family one and we certainly enjoyed the wonderful food at La Palapa and the friendly staff, the beautiful weather, the crashing waves, the pool, the hot tub, etc. I love the place and hope to return for another visit. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a great place to vacation with family and friends.
Believe the reviews when they say this place is awesome! My friend and I had a two bedroom "apartment" with a beautiful view on the 5th floor in the newly renovated C Tower. We each had our own room and bathroom. The place was very clean and spotless, comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. It even had paper towels and coffee filters, which I've never encountered before on my four trips with VI. We ate every night at the wonderful restaurant, La Palapa, which had delicious food and very cheap! The servers and bartenders work so, so hard to accommodate. We did not go off property except for Saturday night. I enjoyed water aerobics every morning, sitting on a lounge chair in the afternoon with my book. Happy hour happened twice a day, and the servers come to you to take drink and food orders. The drinks were always about $3.00 each. They give you a laminated card when you check in that is attached to your credit card, so anytime you order food or a drink they place it on your room and pay when you check out. My friend had a different card with her credit card, so you can pay separately. I can't wait to take my kids and grand kids back as this is a very family-oriented resort with a wonderful, large pool and a large toddler pool area for them. The grounds are very well-tended and beautiful. Every staff member was very kind and work very hard to make your vacation the best!
