Nice hotel on the beach

They made things easy to enjoy sitting and enjoying yourself with poolside service and also allowing you to keep a tab on your room.

Nice ocean view, small for a resort, nice, need more attention in the pool, good location, clean nice beach.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
Cons: internet not too good
This hotel has a good ocean view from the balcony, apparently every room has an ocean view too. The reception is also clean and is a rustic yet modern style, looks nice. The bellboys have excellent customer service starting with the entry and showing everything in the room to the exit as getting you a taxi/pulmonia or guarding your luggage for the day if you are not leaving town after checking out. The room was always very clean, good temperature, every thing works, well in my case except the phone. The room in my opinion was very comfortable even to stay all day swimming and in your room. The pool area is nice yet small. During a not peak season you will have more than enough space though. It has a small water slide, and plenty of those beach chairs and umbrellas. Has a small Jacuzzi for maximum 4 to 6 people. Pool is also temperature regulated. There are two things I did not like about it. One is that you cannot use the beach chairs on the sand, it is only next to the pool; you do get an perfect ocean view, but not on the part of the beach just from the hotel. It has an elevated part from the sand because the tides are high, and they do not have those chairs on the sand. Second thing was that in the pool, the waiters seemed to be very helpful if ordering, but I saw a little girl, about 2 or 3 years old who threw up outside of the pool where people put their drinks, almost in the water, and the parent just left it there and left. I told the waiters who were the only ones I saw around, if they would tell someone to come clean it up. The waiter said yes, went back to the bar. I was there going between the beach and the pool for the next 5 hours of the evening, and that throw up was never cleaned. This was the night before I left, so I do not know if they cleaned it that night. I did not try the restaurants or bar, but I did see that the prices of the bar are not too expensive and they have many different drinks and beers, and good looking food. Has free internet in room but you have to put the user name and password every time you connect, it cannot be remembered on the devices because of their system. Hotel is close to Oxxo's, bars, banks, and mini stores with beer. Overall I think this hotel is nice, calm, and comfortable, but it is too small for a resort and needs more attention in the pool area. I would recommend it.

comfortable place to stay!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
I found this resort outstanding! EVERYONE who worked there was kind and exceptional in every way and truly felt like good friends by the end of our visit. It was a smaller resort and had interesting architecture and we truly loved it!The rooms were very nice and the maid was great. Make sure you have a room facing the ocean because it was a beautiful view and the sound of the ocean is pleasant at night. The food was consistently good; not much to complain about.There is a great restaurant across the street called "restaurant el chilito" that was nice to go to; Alvero, the man who worked there, quickly became our friend and offered cheap excursion options compared to the ones at the resort.

Best Trip to Mazatlan Yet

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
Our family has stayed at Royal Villas before. We usually choose between this hotel and another based on price. This trip we found an out of this world deal. We never purchase "all inclusive" deals, but this one was priced what we normally pay for a European Plan. The hotel staff told us it was something new they offered, and we honestly could not be happier. Meals were good and super convenient. Many times we asked if something was offered that we didn't see on any menus, and they happily accomodated us. What makes our trip here so wonderful now is the staff. After coming here repeatedly the staff remembers us. They treat us so wonderfully and we truly enjoy returning the following year to see the people. The room was nice and had everything we needed. The biggest complaint was the mattress. Overall it was our best vacation to date!

The staff and service at Royal Villas is outstanding. I have stayed here 5 times and am remembered when I return. The mattresses are a bit hard but they will put an eggcrate on them that works really well. The pool area is right next to the beach so you can listen to the waves while relaxing by the pool. The rooms are spacious and great for families.

Royal Villas is a Fantastic Hotel!

Just got back from the Royal Villas. The facilities are first rate, when you walk in you feel the ocean breeze blowing past the pool and through the lobby. The waiters at the outdoor restaurant by the pool and the bar are fantastic, they remember your name from previous trips and are always ready with a cold margarita or cerveza. The rooms are wonderful, all with balconies overlooking the ocean. The two room suites have huge balconies, you could have 10 people out there sunbathing if you wanted! You can arrange sailing, scuba diving, parasailing, kayaking right at the front of the beach by the pool through the staff, as well as fishing or golf! The Royal Villas owners also happen to own a Tequila Factory that makes the smoothest Tequila I've had anywhere. Plan on spending a day out there (30 minutes from town), you can also do their Canopy (a 9 station zip line), as well as a 2 hour ATV ride near the town of La Noria - a great experience you don't get in most resort towns in Mexico like Puerta Vallarta or Cabo! The housekeeping crew is first rate, and the staff will assist you in planning any activity you like. You also are a short Pulmonilla ride from Old Mazatlan where they have restored the downtown square with fine restaurants and an outdoor pavilion. Highly recommended!

Ver Friendly staff-however-------

The staff is very friendly. However------the restaurant is awful. Would recommend that you eat elsewhere. Cruise ship people come 3 times per week and the staff cater to them and not to the hotel guests. Umbrellas are broken and very hard to get one. The pool is nice and located right next to the ocean. It is close to shopping and other restaurants so can easily walk to them. Or take a pulmonia got a nominal fee. I would stay again because of the location.

HUGE Disapointment

The service was horrible, some staff were friendly, but most were not helpful and some were down right rude. The room was ok, but I would never stay here again.
