The resort is an all-suite property, offering guests 247 choices ranging from junior to luxury accommodations, all featuring an incredible ocean view and private balconies on which to enjoy it. The junior suite is a full 575 square feet and includes a sitting area and kitchenette. The luxury suites offer the same in a 750 square foot setting. All suites feature satellite TVs, total air-conditioning, purified running water and all the other amenities that one would expect from a Gold Crown Resort.
While guests can just choose to relax, the options for activities at the Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán are inviting. Among them are golf on a two-mile-long Robert Trent Jones Jr.-designed course, dove and duck hunting through the wetlands, hiking, biking, horseback riding, tennis, and of course all water sports, including surfing, snorkeling, diving, parasailing and jet skiing. Additionally, Mazatlán offers some of the best sport fishing in the world. Another highlight of the area is the sea turtle refuge located on a secluded beach just a few miles south of the city. And of course Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán offers guests a state-of-the-art fitness center and massage and sauna facilities.
When one is not pursuing action or relaxation, Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán provides some extraordinary dining experiences to complete the indulgence. Angelo's features fine Italian cuisine against a background of soft music and Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán's signature casual elegance. Las Palomas serves a unique variety of Mexican and International favorites on a beautiful outdoor terrace daily and offers a lavish brunch with free flowing mimosas every Sunday. Cilantro's provides fresh fish and seafood specialties. Poolside dining at Cascada's Sandwiches ensures that visitors don't have to abandon their activities to enjoy a tasty meal.
Pueblo Bonita Resort is an excellent choice in Mazatlan.

The four dining facilites at Pueblo Bonito are very good, (from casual pool snacking to fine dining at "Angelos".) The Sunday brunch is fabulous and should not be missed. There's also a swim up bar and poolside/beach service, and lets not forget the 2/1 happy hours each day!
The resort has daily activities such as volleyball, water aerobics, ceremics, spanish lessons and beach bingo to name a few. There doesn't seem to be many planned children's activities but we did notice several families at the resort with children. The "timeshare" desk located in the lobby does try and get you to tour "Emerald Bay", a Pueblo Bonito resort located in New Mazatlan. This is in exchange for food vouchers or Mazatlan activities (such as Tequilia Tours, fishing and sailing excursions, etc). Since we were there for two weeks the 90 minute presenatation was not too inconvienent, the resort was lovely, we did not purchase, but we got food/drink vouchers to be used at the Pueblo Bonito resort during our stay! We found this to be well worth it.
Our first year, we had a one bedroom unit, the second year a studio. We found the studio more to our liking as it afforded a more spacious feeling without the confines of a walled in sleeping area. Both units had a sitting area with a second TV (the sofas double as extra sleeping space). All units have an ocean view! Sunsets are free! Units are not very large although fine for two adults.

The one bedroom (2 full beds) has 2 full baths, a kitchen (2 burners, frig, microwave), dining room, living room with couch (queen bed), love seat and 2 chairs, balcony. Every room at this resort has an ocean view.
The one disappointment was the jellyfish. There were small, blue jellyfish in abundance in the water and on the beach every day, except for one. The resort has a hut on the beach where you can rent boogie boards, jet skis, and kayaks. We took advantage of the one day with no jellyfish and rented boogie boards because the waves were great. The boards were 50 pesos each, but we negotiated them down to 40 each for two.
This timeshare is nice, you're treated well and the beach is semi-secluded. Great for a relaxing vacation!

This is not a super new place. It is about 15 yrs old and has that terracotta feel to it: dark brown tiles and dark woods. This may seem dark to some, but it didn't bother us. Regardless of what you read elsewhere, the beds are not really a problem. A hotel bed is never as cushy as home anyway. They have 2 nice pools and a ton of lounge chairs around them. They also have 20+ beach palapas and a line that the vendors don't cross unless you invite them over. It's location is primo, right at the end of the hotel strip, so its a little quieter, something we loved.
If you really prefer a big, new, high security, shiny, place with marble everywhere, try PB Emerald Bay. It's in the middle of nowhere however. Their "infinity" pool is incredible.
Pueblo Bonito is a big timeshare place, so I'm not sure you can rent a room here, especially when we went (over New Years).

Be sure to visit the town market and the Aquario -- both easy to get to with an inexpensive "cab" (golf cart!) that you can find right outside the resort.
We also enjoyed several of the resort activities: a fiesta and evening entertainment. There is a delicious breakfast buffet with all sorts of local delicacies and fresh fruits! Enjoy!

I mentioned they were accommdating. We were put in a lovely room, but realized after two days that we wanted a better view. We had gone grocery shopping and filled up the large refrigerator that was in our room. When they showed us the new room we were going to get, we noticed that the refrigerator was much smaller. We mentioned this and they moved our refrigerator (that was full) to our new room!

We took the San Blas jungle tour, which was great and included a delicious lunch, but beware of the tiny biting insects! They weren't a problem on the boat, but once we sat in the shade to have our lunch, they appeared. The bites are very itchy, and we were warned not to scratch, which would make it worse.
We also did a trip to Rosario, which was excellent as well. We stopped for lunch in a tiny restaurant that was doing a booming takeout business! It was very reasonably priced, as was the produce in the market we went to there.
