“Very Nice Property....BUT”
Reviewed 31 July 2010

I run a Tour Company called www.vpvacations.com and if you want a cheap air and hotel or just hotel rates give me a call. Quijote is a very nice hotel but DO NOT USE your credit card at this hotels restaurant as they are using their credit card machine to get your CC info to make duplicate cards to make charges. I Had 12 of my customer get their CC info take in April and now my information on my AMX card last week

This is a small, boutique hotel, nice restaurant, right on the beach. Been going for years. Just a warning: they rent out the hotel for both American and Mexican spring break college students WITHOUT security at night to keep things sane. All night they drank beer, parties, screamed, and played music. The Mexican students came the day before we left, thank goodness, since the next morning all the hallways were covered with sand, the elevator was broken and there were no less than 1,000 beer cans on the grounds. Insane. If you didn't know, Mexicans know how to party until daylight. Not so great if you prefer to sleep at night. So, nice place but avoid at all costs during the 3 weeks of Spring Break.

We have been staying here on vacations for more than 20 years. Great staff, extremely helpful. The beds are very comfortable (they did used to have the concrete slab with a mattress on top, but no more) and the rooms are typical hacienda type, which I find charmingly Mexican. Who wants to stay in Mexico in a standard room that looks like any American hotel? A pool, three hot tubs, and the beach is down the steps ( 5 or 6) to the sand. We could do without the new restaurant, mainly because it doesn't offer Mexican food, except for their Sunday buffet. The old restaurant was miles better! However, it just gives us more reason to visit the many restaurants nearby. Great place!!

My Husabnd and I and another couple went to Mexico for the first time, and it was to Mazatlan. We stayed at the El Quijote Inn. Somewhat fearful, what with a strange language and money, we checked in. The price was right, the rooms are nice a big, full kitchen with basics. I must say that the beds are about as soft as rocks, but you learn to live with that. The staff were lovely and the service was pretty fast for Mexican standards. We enjoyed ourselves enough that we are going back again, this time for almost a month, and taking a good many friends with us. Salud

We exchanged our two-bedroom timeshare for this one. As with many vacations to an unfamiliar place, there were good points, and not so good points.
On the plus side, the location is lovely, right on the beach. The suite with master bedroom and another adjoining room were large enough, and there was a Murphy bed in the living area. The staff was competant and spoke English if needed.
The restaurant was good, with a happy "hour" from 12-6 PM.
On the minus side - this place is OLD. Many things were not up to U.S. standards, such as the furniture. The beds are rock-hard, since there is just a mattress on top of a concrete foundation. The dishwasher did not work, and there was not a single light that you could read by at night. We were glad that the A/C worked well.
About the area in general - there are no supermarkets within walking distance, just convenience stores, and nowhere to pick up prepared food to eat in. We ate out every meal, and the restaurants were reasonably priced. It was low season, and some shops were closed. We were the only Americans in the hotel, everyone else being nationals. We felt especially conspicuous every time we walked down the street, as we were pursued by aggressive timeshare sellers.

  • Liked — the beach location
  • Disliked — the lack of any luxury features; bare-bones facilities

If you are looking for a HotSpot, this is NOT the place to be! Small hotel on a safe stretch of beach. It's old and it is Mexico, so don't be expecting the Ritz at these prices, but. . . If you are looking for a welcoming, caring staff, clean rooms, beautiful views and a great location for walking the beach or the sidewalks, this is it.

The restaurant food is bland, but a few minutes walk in either direction brings you to many fun choices. Security is very good and the waitstaff is great! If you have questions, the front desk people are wonderful - and all speak English well.

Rates are low for the value - if you keep in mind this isn't Florida. Well worth the horrendous flights from the Northeast.

Traveled to this hotel late January/early February '06 for quick 1 week vacation. I have been to Mayan Coast (caribbean), Acapulco, Puerto Viarta, and this Hotel/area is nothing exceptional. We did not have a suite, room only. Room is old, light switches falling off, no purified water, ceiling fan not working, clogged drains, hard beds (as most Mexican hotels), pool not heated (worthless, freezing cold). Maid missed us for cleaning x1 day, found roach on floor one day (I left it on night stand for the maid) and had note about fumigation the next day. Many older US and Canadians have 1-2 week timeshares at this hotel(cheap?). Although it was very inexpensive vacation, (total for two people $900.00usd for air and hotel from Minneapolis [I booked the air thru Trans-Global for $99.00/person and the hotel thru expedia])I should have paid a couple hundred more for hotel that more closly met American standards (check out Casa del Oro). Mazatlan in general is an old town, with many retired/snowbirds from US/Canada. Ocean was cold, many beggers in town, rip off return cab ride from hotel to airport, kind of depressing all and all. I won't be going back.
