Mazatlán, Sin.- Mazatlán is the tourist destination that maintained the best hotel occupancy during 2020, due to the commitment of the tourism sector to implement sanitary protocols, adapting its services to the new normal, which translated into confidence on the part of tourists, Despite the problems that Covid-19 brought with it, highlighted the Secretary of Tourism of Sinaloa, Óscar Pérez Barros.
“Definitely Mazatlán has shown a renewal since 2018, where thanks to the large investments made by the State Government, under the vision of our Governor Quirino Ordaz Coppel, the face of destiny has been transformed and that has brought us power interest new hotel chains, “he said.

He added that the Hyde brand will put its first hotel in Mexico in Mazatlan, being a luxury resort that will allow us to expand the hotel plant of the destination, and to this, we must add that, Courtyard Marriott Resort announced its opening for next October.
Accor is bringing its Hyde Hotel & Residences brand to Mexico, announcing plans for a newbuild property on Mazatlan’s Zona Dorada.
The arrival of the brand in the Pacific Coast destination is seen as another milestone for Mazatlan as it continues to invest millions in its tourism infrastructure.
The 75,277-square-foot, beachfront property will break ground in 2021, with an expected opening date in late 2023.
The 150-room lifestyle resort will have a range of accommodations options for leisure and business travelers, including 23 suites. As the name implies, the property will also have a residential component consisting of 50 one-, two-, and three-bedroom units.
In addition to 300 feet of private beach access, the property will have an oceanfront pool, a spa and fitness facility, a retail boutique and five dining outlets.
Mazatlan, while certainly a well-known beach destination in Mexico, is not typically the first choice for hotel companies when selecting a place to make their debut south of the border (El Cid is the only other brand to debut there). But the owner of Hyde is the Daniel Cardenas Family, an international agriculture company that is based in the state of Sinaloa, home to Mazatlan.
In addition to the new Hyde Hotel, Mazatlan is expecting hotels by Fiesta Americana, Marriott and Holiday Inn.
The introduction of the resort is in line with a growth strategy that Mazatlan has been working on for the past few years; the city has been pouring millions of dollars to improve its Centro Historico, Malecon, parks, monuments and more. The opening of the resort creates 210 jobs for the people of Mazatlan.
A 32.5-acre Parque Central is in development, expected to open late this year. It will contain two playgrounds, two spaces for concerts, areas for food trucks, a saltwater lake with marine life, and the 3.4-acre Sea of Cortez Aquarium. A 660,000-gallon oceanic tank and an IMAX theater will be top attractions at the aquarium.
“This news is undoubtedly great examples of the confidence that investors have in the destination, and that with the help of CIT Sinaloa they have been able to attract the State, given the support and permanent advice that is granted, being one of the few States that grant these facilities ”, highlighted the head of the Sectur.
