About Rob Hunter

Annette and I meet early in high school and we've been together ever since. We have three grown kids now all married with new grandchildren.

Both of us born and raised in LA, we've spent the last 20+ years in Colorado's Rocky Mountains.

We took a trip with the kids years ago to Mazatlan. We loved it and the people and have been going back ever since. We recently bought an additional condo just north of this Islas Del Sol condo and we generally spend 3 months a year there.

We love company and if it works out timing wise we would love to spent time and introduce the city to you if you don't already know it well...

Rob Hunter purchased this condo in 2000

Why Rob Hunter chose Mazatlan

This property is about 30 years old and is well kept but not fancy. It is comfortable with maid service. I think it's about the nicest location for just hanging and walking everywhere easily.

What makes this condo unique

We love the sunsets, long walks on the beach north or south and the near by and onsite restaurants close by and on the beach. You'll be welcomed and made to feel at home at Joe's Oyster Bar, Chili's Pepper and many other beachfront hangouts.

Amazing Views!

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a nice stay. It is a 2 story 2 bedroom 2 bathroom condo with 1 king bed and 1 f/q bed, and 2 futons. The views are expectacular, with it being a corner unit. Fully equipped kitchen, eventhough we didn't use. The building is older, it has a small pool and restaurant that has good breakfast. The waves were strong and hitting the retainer wall during our stay, thanks in part to Hurricane Franklin. Unit 801 is highly recommended for a family of 6.

I would definitely stay there again!!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was clean and some of the staff were very friendly. We had a problem with the AC on our first days but the owner and his wife went above and beyond to fix it for us and make us feel comfortable. Thanks Rob and Annette we really appreciate everything you guys did. But my favorite part about this condo were the amazing views from every room 😍? I wanted to stay longer! The restaurant also has good food for a good price. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay right on the beach! The condo is fantastic, the views are wonderful, and the sound of the waves breaking on the sand is something awesome to fall asleep to. The location of the condo right on the beach is of course fantastic but also it's location to places in Mazatlan is great! The internet worked very fast, the pool is heated, and the 3 flat screen tvs in the condo were nice! We all enjoyed our wonderful stay!

Older condo, great views, priced right.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Islas del Sol #801 for 3 nights. The view of the ocean is wonderful. Unfortunately the condo does not have an outdoor patio so you need to enjoy the view through the large windows. There is big construction project next door so for now much of the view looks out on to that, but the construction noise wasn't too bad. This is an older condo building so the condos and grounds reflect this. The pool area is small so if it's a busy time of year it might feel crowded. When we were there it wasn't too bad. Lots of families. There really isn't a beach in front, even at low tide. The closest beach looks like the one in front of El Cid. The beds are comfortable. The master bedroom air conditioner was challenged to keep the room cool but there is a ceiling fan. The rest of the air conditioning units worked very well. Although we didn't cook, it did seem that the kitchen was pretty well equipped. The wifi in the unit worked well as did the wifi in the lobby. The condo was very clean. The staff was friendly. I'd skip ordering snacks/drinks from the restaurant and instead bring your own. There is an OXO right across the street for snacks and beverages. Lots of families brought down their own ice chests to the pool area with drinks and snacks...a great idea. If you are looking for a no frills beach front condo, this is definitely a good value.

Islas del Sol condo

  • 4 of 5

It was a refreshing stay. The condo is very comfortable and adequate for 11 people! The view and a/c were wonderful. The kitchen was very well equipped with all of the necessities for cooking. The location was great as well. The only thing we experienced was that wifi was not working on our floor while we were there. Also our cable was not working, which we reported, but it seemed a little complicated to get it fixed. We only stayed two nights. The kids had a blast, though! We will return!

Mazatlan is a 'down home' Mexican resort...a great value. Restaurants and attractions are very reasonably priced and the service everywhere is great.

The city has a good economy based on many industries beside tourism, in fact tourism is makes up only a small percentage of the economy. The result is you feel a part of real Mexico while you are there.

The beaches are wonderful and plenty...reminding me of the coast of Southern California. The old historic center of town is a fascinating step back into old Mexico with great restaurants, music, shops, theater, art, and much more.

Getting around in taxi's, palmonia's, or buses is fast and easy. Or you can just walk to everything in the Golden Zone and hang out there...there is more than a mile of unobstructed coastline to walk and collect shells on in the Golden Zone alone.

The surf is nice and good for body or board surfing. The weather from November to May is moderate and warm for northerners.

Currently there is a building being constructed to the South of Islas Del Sol and from 8-5 there is some noise from the construction. We have priced the condo during this time accordingly.
