We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with excellent service and accommodations. The hotel is close to the beach club and we took a free water shuttle to it that ran every 15 minutes. This gave us the ability to enjoy the shore and enjoy the waves.

There are three sister properties next to each other on the main strip in Mazatlan and then the Marina Beach Hotel by itself over at the Marina. The downside is that you have to drive or take the hotel shuttle any time you want to access the kid's club, the gym, or bigger pools. The bar/lounge at the Castilla hotel...

El Cid Marina is the ideal hotel for families, singles, or groups. The grounds are expansive, the the rooms are HUGE. The pools are amazing, and that includes the *hot* hot tub and the pool with the hidden caves. They also have an extra-deep pool, and it's great for swimming. Having the beach right outside is amazing, yet the marina...

Travelled for a wedding with friends. The property itself is very nice, and there is nice access to the beach and several pools. We got guilted into taking a "sales tour" for a free gift and it left a bad taste in our mouth. Granted it was our choice to take the tour, but it was very unprofessional and definitely...

Right off the top, we've never been to Mazatlan prior to this trip.. I can't compare El Cid with any other resorts within the area, and after this week long stay, probably never will.. My pile of 5 star ratings may seem willy nilly, be assured, they are not !.! Upon our arrival, the welcome wagon seemed starved for tips,...

Wonderful service by all staff. Cannot think of a single thing that we were ever in need of that was not offered immediately. This includes shuttle service, restaurant, recreation, maid service and checking in/out.

The Marina is the pride of the El Cid’s four Mazatlán properties. This is because Senor Gomez and Armando have assembled a staff that cares about their guests. From the time you get off the shuttle you are greeted with people who consider you more than a guest, but a family member. The majority of the faces are from prior...

My wife and I just spent a week at El Cid Marina and the experience was very good. We stayed in a 1 bedroom unit that was very clean, and roomy. There were separate AC controls in the kitchen /living-room area, as well as the bedroom and the temperature was easily as cool to cold as you like (we like...

This resort is very nice, well maintained, and has a friendly staff. It has everything you might want on property with the exception of Spa and Gym which are available with a free shuttle at another property close by. There is free shuttle service to the other El Cid properties in Mazatlan which puts you close to the Golden Zone...

“Some rooms have walkout sliding doors to pathways. We stayed in building 5 on room 508 but small balcony. Close to the deep pool.”

“I would like to suggest that you put some felt pads on the feet of the kitchen chairs, because they are so heavy they are dragged across the marble floor and can be heard from above and below floors. Please take this as a suggestion, and not a complaint. Thank you”
