Amazing Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay at the Sandcastle for 2 full weeks in February.

We had a total of 10 people (6 Adults - Ages 36-70 and 4 kids ages 4-11).

Everyone with us had an amazing time! The grounds are beautiful (The pictures don't do it justice) and the staff was fantastic. Every need we had was met immediately and the property exceeded every expectation we had. The house is a playground for both kids and adults. There is so much detail and thought put into every aspect of it....every day we found something new! There is so much room that if you needed some privacy, you had so many different patios or parts of the garden to choose from.

The beach was so quiet that we only saw maybe 2-3 people a day going for a walk. We hardly ever had to leave the house as we had everything we needed right there. The kids had a blast putting on shows for us on the stage in the garden too! All in all, this place is amazing and we would be back in a heart beat!

Thank you Sylvia, Pieter, Raphael and Cindy for such a memorable vacation.

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled a lot to various locations, and this was one of the best vacations ever. Sylvia, Raphael, and Cindy did everything to make sure we were happy and comfortable. They were able to make recommendations for us regarding restaurants, best shopping places, etc. that were very helpful. They went out of their way to make sure everything was to our liking. Believe me, you won't be disappointed if you select the Sandcastle. There were ten in our group and we all had our own privacy, and yet the place was large enough to accommodate all of us as a group comfortably. We are already planning to go back. Great vacation!

Fantastic private retreat for family or friends!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I took our adult children to the Sandcastle for our anniversary, and couldn’t have planned a more perfect holiday! There were 10 of us in total. This place is stunning and so much room to gather or head off to a favorite peaceful corner by yourself. We were greeted by Silvia and Rafael with fresh made ceviche, guacamole, salsa, margaritas and beer. The personalized service from Rafael and Cindy were second to none and any tours or transportation were easily arranged. We headed to town a couple of times, though everything we needed was there. The beach is beautiful and quiet, though a TV show was being filmed next door. Surfs Up Cafe is right next door and definitely one of the best restaurants for breakfast or lunch, complete with live music. The worst part was when we had to leave, but we have many great memories for sure! Thank you Silvia, Rafael and Cindy for a fantastic vacation!! During the 5-6 months prior to our trip we had a few questions about the resort, groceries, transportation etc. Pieter was able to get back to us promptly and we even had a few phone conversations along the way to make us feel at ease booking this property with them. Excellent experience overall and would love to go back again.

GREATEST place ever!

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying we had REALLY high expectations and those expectations were blown out of the water!! This place is awesome! We were in Mazatlan for a week and only left Sandcastle for one day trip. We had the pleasure of getting to know Sylvia, the owner, who was there during our stay. Wow is she ever great! SOOO helpful and nice. Not intrusive in ANY way. She had Rafael and Cindy (our daily caretakers, for lack of a better word) prepare fresh guacamole and margaritas for our arrival. They were both out of this world! Rafael and Cindy also make a killer pina colada, ceviche and carne asada tacos. Plus we had FRESH coconuts right off the tree! As soon as Sylvia found out we loved coconuts she sent her gardener up the tree to get us some. WOW! Also, Rafael negotiated the price for some oysters that the fishermen were out getting right off the beach. It doesn't get fresher or better than that! And they shucked them for us!

The beds were outstandingly comfortable - and trust me, one of our party is very particular about his bed! The kitchen had anything you could possible want - and I cook. We played tennis, basketball and even did a little putting. But, probably the most fun was playing volleyball in the pool. That got pretty competitive! Every night at dusk we'd go to the 4th floor and watch the sunset...ahhhhh. My daughter and I saw the green flash!! These were some of the most amazing sunsets I've ever seen and I live in CA. We thought we'd go do the nightlife thing at some point but we were so happy and exhausted by the end of the day we never made it. Now, mind you it was Me and my hubby - early 50's, our kids and their significant others - early 20's - and they didn't even want to go out. That to me speaks volumes of the serenity of Sandcastle Mazatlan!

The grounds are UNBELIEVABLE! Absolutely gorgeous! Impeccably manicured. If you needed to have solitude there were more than enough beautifully secluded areas on the grounds. You can even go for a search for the turtles that are on the property. Seriously, I can't say enough about this place! You really have to see it for yourself.

We will definitely be back!

Tracy, Dennis, Ali, Richard, Lucas & Zoe

P.S. Thanks again for EVERYTHING Sylvia!!

If you want privacy at the beach and pool - this is the place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 joined by three spouses and one grandchild (11 total) enjoyed an incredible week over the fourth of July at the Sandcastle. The single best feature was the privacy the property offered. We literally saw maybe 6 people on the beach over the course of the week. With our own pool and only seconds away from beach access it made it super convenient for everyone to hang out at the pool, pop down to the beach to ride the waves, and back up in time for a fresh batch of Pina Colatas.

The 5 bedrooms allowed everyone to have their own room and the common areas were cozy that made for a fun time together. Would we go back, absolutely. Rafael made us feel at home, took care of any need that we had, and could find us anything we wanted. Daily cleaning made keeping the house in order a breeze.

We did much of the cooking ourselves with several runs to SAMS, Walmart but also enjoyed bringing chefs in to do a few of the dinners. Rafael again was able to assist us in this. The property is not new but maintained. The size of the property allowed everyone to spread out so never felt like we were on top of each other.

Excursions were easily accessible from the property. It was an easy ride from airport - we moved 11 people around without our own transportation and did quite nicely (Rafael makes things happen). It was a great family vacation. We felt safe and had the time of our life.
