Another fabulous trip to my favorite beach and hotel. The hotel is making some changes (all inclusive now available), but the thing that hasn't changed is the wonderfully kind and friendly people at the hotel. All you have to do is ask, and it's done. Great beach to lay back and read books, or lots of activities at the hotel...

I've been visiting Mazatlan for over 40 years, and continue to return to the Playa for many reasons. Firstly, It's just a beautiful resort, with not only the best beach, friendly and accommodating staff, but the owners continue to improve and upgrade the facility. This October, we met a few friends there from Northern California, and cheered the SF Giants...
