An 18-hole golf course is located on-site
About 20 miles south of Mazatlan
This 900-acre retreat is lauded for its seclusion – the resort sits along about 4 miles of serene sand in the gated Estrella del Mar community, which is just 22 miles south of Mazatlan. Visitors can expect a quiet, tranquil escape at this hotel, where many choose to soak in the rays or relax at Las Villas Spa with a soothing aromatherapy massage or replenishing seaweed body treatment. The rooms and suites all boast private balconies, plus satellite TVs, spacious tubs and Wi-Fi access. Golf lovers will enjoy the impeccably kept 18-hole Estrella del Mar Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., which recent guests say offers a superb layout. Other on-site activities include two on-site tennis courts, a turtle sanctuary (which guests can tour), as well as two pools and a fitness center. Meanwhile, the hotel's four dining venues showcase a variety of cuisine, though some visitors say the dishes left something to be desired.

Critic Reviews



The Estrella del Mar Golf Club is Mazatlán's best golf course. The 18-hole, 7,004-yard course, also designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr., stretches along ... coastline on Isla de la Piedra, a peninsula just south of downtown Mazatlán. There's a PGA pro on staff, a driving range, and lessons available.

Lonely Planet


Mazatlán's finest golf course is just south of the airport by the ocean.
