El Cid has never failed us in 30 years! Staff and amenities are like fine wine.....better with time! Everyone goes out of their way to ensure guests needs are taken care of. From the time of arrival to check out, we were treated like family. As for the staff members to mention because of their dedication to their job, EVERYONE deserves recognition the desk staff, bell boys,maids, waiters, waitresses,activities staff, maintenance staff, shuttle drivers, laundry lady, Aries fishing people, security staff, cooks..... It takes so many of you to ensure your guests are happy. THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU!! You are very appreciated!!!

This was not my first trip to this property. The staff is always helpful and willing to go the extra step. There are members of the staff that have been here for a number of years and it is great to interact with them year after year. The activities staff at the pool is fantastic and they get everyone involved. Beautiful beach on property. Just an overall great experience.

The stay was very nice however was a little confused about the wrist bands. We found there were different menus and bottle soda compared to soda in the can which was the due to what wrist band you had. That was not explained before arriving over all was not overly impressed. Remember to make your reservations on where you may want to eat, or else you will your will be finding a cab going downtown..

I found The Marina delightful. The grounds were perfectly manicured lush green grass, and gorgeous flowers. The iguana pool area- what fun! We counted 15 "pet " iguanas , all sizes, walking around. The pool has caves and caverns to explore, rocks to jump off, and a slide. It is lit up at night with different colored lights. Lovey area. Our studio room was very airy, large, with a great view from the balcony of ocean and boats going by and fabulas sunsets. The marina restaurant had excellent food. We prefered eating there at 2:00 when it was quiet and always a window seat with a view of the boats in the marina available. We love the hostess Alex because she was always smiling and so friendly to us. Also, Jorje the diningroom manager treated us as though we were his favorite guests! But I know he treated others specially too because I saw him do little nice things like having a basket of cinamon buns on the table for special guests as they arrived. Actually, the breakfast and lunch waiters at the marina restaurant were the best. Personal, professional service . We enjoyed dining at night at the Terrace below because there was top notch entertainment as we dined. There was even dancing twice a week to a GREAT band. So many activities to do I had trouble choosing! Bochi ball on the lawn, spanish lessons, pool exersize, morning stretch were my choices but volley ball in the pool and black jack were favorites of others. Activiy staff Christian, Iram and Dante became our good friends. They were so much fun! Love you guys. We are members with elite benefits and we really appreciated the service at the elite lounge. Emilla, Maria and Maria helped us with all our needs and problems with grace and sweetness. You were very important to us! Another delightful group of staff are the bellmen who went out of their way to get to know us and help in so many ways. We love you Freddy and Edgar and young Miguel the apprentice. Thank you front desk Hector for all you do for us. The staff at The Marina is amazing. They are the best part of El Cid. Exceptional. This is a small quiet resort which even looks like a neighbohood architecturaly With buildings different colors and sizes. You can always hop a free shuttle bus to visit nearby sister resorts El Moro and Castilla and Granada for different restaurants ( 9 in total) activities, pools and beaches. The city of Mazatlan is right there . I reccomend taking a guided "pulmania" ride to explore the many awesome parts of the city, rather than a tour bus. It will be much more personal and fun.

Serene and relaxing

We really appreciated the scenic surroundings and peacefulness of this resort. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There were some fun activities every day at poolside and the shuttle busses were frequent. The food was good, not fabulous. The evening entertainment at the outdoor patio was most enjoyable. A word of warning to those booking tours thru the hotel. You may lose a few dollars on exchange if your tour is cancelled (due to weather, not enough participants, etc) as the tours are paid for upfront so exchange charged and that of the refund may not be at the same rate.
