The perfect healthy lifestyle getaway that's tranquil and easily accessible
The perfect getaway for a couple, this charming 1-BR/1BA condo is located within Estrella del Mar (a gated, master-planned community featuring over 3 miles of private beach, 18-holes of championship golf and a 1st-class spa. Estrella del Mar is the best kept secret and the best value in the Pacific!
The community is gated, secured and meticulously maintained. This amazing project is home to an annual PGA golf tournament and has something for everyone.
The golf clubhouse is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute shuttle ride away from the condo. It is where you will find the pro shop and one of two fitness centers. It is also where you will find the La Paloma Restaurant and Bar. Life at Estrella del Mar is casual, so except for the busiest weekend morning, reservations are not needed for golf and the same goes for dinner at night. Just show up and enjoy yourself.
Estrella del Mar’s Turtle Sanctuary is one of the unique features of the development – a public/private partnership with Mexico’s environmental protection agency that protects the native turtle nesting grounds. During the hatching season, the volunteers at the turtle sanctuary will show you around and you can even release some turtles into the ocean!
A short walk up the beach from the condos, you will find the Las Villas Hotel. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Just let them know what you need and they will make it happen. Las Villas offers a full bar, restaurants, a complete fitness center, and a first class spa. You can also rent bikes and boogie boards, and make appointments for horseback riding. There is decent surfing in the area and recently kite boarding had become popular.
Mazatlan is easily accessible, about 30 minutes way, and features plenty of excellent dining and nightlife options plus the charming historic downtown area. It is also where anglers can pick up a fishing trip to some of the best fishing grounds in the Pacific!
Our condo is located on the ground floor and when you walk out onto the patio, you are steps from the beautiful resort-style pool and only a few more steps to the gorgeous white sandy beach. And when you walk out the backdoor, you will find yourself on Estrella's signature golf course. This condo has everything you need for a long weekend or the whole season - washer/dryer, full kitchen, separate shower and tub, and a patio that overlooks the pool.
Everything we ever wanted was found right here at Estrella del Mar. It is the perfect place for you if you're looking for a healthy lifestyle destination. The beach and the gated resort area are perfect for running and the Pacific Ocean is warm and calm in the mornings, ideal for swimming. There are tennis courts and, of course, the Robert Trent Jones, Jr. signature golf course that is a joy to play.
Estrella del Mar is only ten minutes from Mazatlan international airport and within minutes of landing you will be settled in and ready to let your cares slip away. Come enjoy this beautiful little gem of a resort! Once you experience it, you will want to come back time and time again! We have been coming to Estrella del Mar since 1998 and our only regret is not spending more time here.

About Philip Fitzgerald
A well seasoned traveler who has been to more than 70 countries and has visited literally every resort town in Mexico and all 31 states in Mexico. My wife and I are accomplished athletes and seek healthy alternatives to the typical "resort" vacations.
Philip Fitzgerald purchased this Condo in 2001
Why Philip Fitzgerald chose Mazatlán Municipality
We found Estrella del Mar in 1998 and knew this was the place for us. With direct flights from Southern California and only 10 minutes away from Mazatlan airport, Estrella del Mar offered easy access and great value. It is much less expensive or hectic compared to Cabo or Vallarta and much closer than Hawaii.
What makes this Condo unique
We love having a place right on the water (pool or ocean) without the hassles of long treks to and from the lounge chair. And the resort itself is perfect for people who value fitness. Estrella del Mar is gate and has about 3 miles of virtually private beach. It is an ideal place for runners and swimmers. It's also a great place for golfers. The course is designed perfectly for good golfers who hit the ball a mile, or hacks like me who need a wide landing zone closer into the tee box. The best part of this course is that you never have to worry about being jammed in between groups that are either holding you up or pushing you from behind. Play the way golf was meant to be played - at your pace! And the course is spectacular!

Real y good
Real y good I gonna come back a soon a can !!!!!!!!
We stayed at the Fitzgeralds’ condo for 3 weeks Feb-Mar 2018. Estrella del Mar is golfers’ heaven. We like small-town Mexico and don’t golf. My first impression was not so good: it’s full of gringos and so isolated - you even flush used toilet paper instead of putting it in the waste basket.
But the condo unit was very pleasant and well appointed, just like the photos, and with great appliances. The owners, I think, had not been there for a while and there were a couple electrical and water flow issues that the they responded to immediately. We cooked all our meals and could have used more pots and pans, but there were enough. We were very comfortable.
There are 3 large sets of condos, maybe 300 units, but we never felt crowded - most are not used for a good part of the year. Each set has an amazing 80 meter heated swimming pool, the nicest I’ve used. Along the sides are wading pools, hot tubs, even swim-up bars available for parties. The beach side has a section without a higher edge, where if you pause for a look you see only turquoise pool water, beach and sea. We were often the only swimmers. The beach is wide and long, open to the sea so not for swimming, but wonderful for walking. We strolled for miles, typically twice a day, and again rarely shared it with more than one or two others. That beach made a puppy out of our 10-year-old setter.
Fifteen km up a good road on the spit of land toward Mazatlan is the fishing-tourist-farming town of Isla de la Piedra. You can drive, taxi or bum a ride with other residents to get fresh fish, produce and meat; chill at the simple restaurants along the protected and swimmable beach; or catch the little ferry (every 10 min, a few pesos) to Mazatlan, where the Soriana’s supermarkets are almost indistinguishable from those of major northern cities.
And the residents of EdM are very nice gringos. We’ were included in the annual St Paddy’s Day party (at the swim-up bar) and remain in touch with some. Our typical day involved walking the beach, swimming, heading off to explore or just reading, chatting with neighbours, preparing simple meals and -invariably - sipping a margarita on the patio as the sun set.
Now - and maybe when my patience is tried for the rest of my life - I put myself on that beach, walking with my husband, our old dog running in and out of the wide surf maybe 200 meters ahead. That alone would have made for a great holiday.
Great location for golf, beach and sunsets!
Estrella is a fantastic property, close to the airport and 30 minutes from Mazatlán. The development is well maintained, pool area is great. Restaurants at the hotel and golf course offer good food, the Baja shrimp tacos are wonderful. Kitchen set up in the unit is minimal, ok if you plan on eating out a lot or keep meals really simple. Lucky for us we know a few condo owners, so we spent quite a few evenings on their well-appointed patios. Overall we had a great two weeks, we’ll be back to Estrella to spend more time with good friends!
Beautiful setting , pools , roaring ocean , great sunsets , world class golf course !! And of course the ever friendly staff every place you go at Estrella de Mar ! We will be back soon !!
Everything we wanted in a vacation
We were looking for something private, quiet, and scenic. We really enjoyed our stay. Steps from a beautiful pool and ocean views. 3 mile private beach. Nice workout facility. Awesome golf. Saw some baby sea turtles hatch on beach. The condo is very open and modern. Well equipped kitchen. Very comfortable. Loved it!
Beautiful, restful, natural, supportive of both rest and recreation, comfortable, safe, and fun.
The property was clean and well-kept with clear, cool pools and delightful hot tubs and saunas. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to get us whet we needed, any time of day. Our 'neighbors', especially the 'old pros', were friendly and helpful with just the right amount of advice on questions. It was relatively isolated, which was both good news and bad news. The good news: no traffic or bustle and easy to relax in the beautiful natural surroundings. The bad news: it took some planning--and time--to get to a grocery store. Fortunately, the food served at both the Hotel and Club Room were not bad, and we ate breakfast at one of the two places every morning.
From initial contact, the owner clearly wanted our stay to be a good one and responded to every question we had.
We intend to go back to this beautiful place!
