Casa Romanita - Beautiful, Comfortable, Private Retreat
"We had a wonderful stay at Casa Romanita. We have chosen to revisit the same property multiple times due to the exquisite Art Deco architecture, private pool, rooftop patio, and full kitchen that allow us to really feel at home. Our daughter loves this home, as it is very kid friendly and only a short block to the beach!
The historic neighborhood is fascinating with Mexican Colonial colors, tropical plants, art galleries and lots of new restaurants sprouting up each time we visit, in addition to our old favorites.
El Presidio, Water's Edge and Hector's Bistro, only blocks from the house are a must!
Cannot wait for our return!"

"For us this was a very interesting change of pace as we are typically time share exchangers. We hop around resorts every few weeks in the golden zone but nothing was available for our last week, the start of Samana Santa so we gave VRBO a try. Having not yet ventured into the historic zone we filled our last week with eating out at many amazing restaurants (Angelina's our fav.) and strolling and soaking up the ambiance. Watching the evening crowds and partiers from the vantage of the 7th story was better than anything on tv :) When ready for bed sealing up the windows and putting on a/c shut out all the noise so it was perfect. Daytime traffic was not annoying even tho it was a busy time in Mzt. Lovely relaxing a.m.'s on the balcony gazing at the view of Mazatlan's bay and coastline and listening to the waves. Infinity poolside was a quiet place to read and not be bothered by vendors while enjoying a lovely view. Not a far walk to a beach if desired, which we like to do short walks looking for beach glass. The condo itself was very clean and well equipped as was the building itself. Also nice comfy king bed. Great location right across from the cliff diver tower. Pet friendly building but not sure if this particular suite is. We will use this property again."

"This is a great place if you want to get away from the tourists and if you appreciate the flavor of what is Mexico. There are a number of things to do nearby. In fact I was thinking or renting a car and I am glad that we didn't do so. You can get around on open air taxis (pulmonias) very affordably.
My stay was a hair atypical in that I came during Semana Santa (Holy Week) which is followed by bike week. So far no problems with either set of people. Bike week down here isn't like a Hell's Angels gathering. It is a lot of motorcyclists enjoying themselves with minimal drunken stupor.
The owner of this property is forthright and attentive. It is a definite plus to have your own kitchen, private pool and a 180 degree view of the Pacific. On a couple of nights music played into the evening but it was actually pretty good music and it doesn't go on forever and ever (that is my mothers house in LA)
I would definitely recommend a stay at Norberto's 1 BR condo.
Some other local activities I would recommend. Take the jungle tour. It is a great boat ride with a great guide, pelicans ride in and out with you on the bow. There is a pristine beach on stone island. It is a full day 9-3 for 30 bucks with food included.
Pancho's in the Zona Dorada is a fantastic joint. There is also an upscale place called El Presidio that I was frankly disappointed in for the cost to flavor ratio. Great staff and atmosphere though as well as live music.
El Quelite is 25 km away. El Meson de Los Laureanos is a phenomenally good restaurant. Order the Carnitas and you will not be disappointed.
If you want to visit a city that is more city than resort filled with crazy people a la Cancun. Come to Mazatlan and enjoy 85 degree consistent highs and 67 degree lows in April.
And we still have tonight and tomorrow left haha......"
