This resort is amazing! It is beautiful. The rooms and grounds are perfect. Bathrooms around pool and restaurants are clean , food is great !! But the staff are what truly makes this a great place. Dante , the activities director, is funny , kind , helps everyone. He is in the pool for water aerobics, teaching Spanish, playing bingo and much more. He know how to laugh and have fun. The servers at the bars, pool restaurants and main restaurants are fabulous!! Do not miss this resort. I know you will love it !!!

We recently stayed at the El Cid Marina Resort in Mazatlan. When we booked the reservations it seemed like a great deal. When we arrived at the airport the resort had a bus available to transport us to the resort. Upon arriving at the resort there were too many people checking in at the same time for the staff to take care of us very quickly. It seemed very hectic. After checking in they had someone take us to our room and show us the property. The person taking us to our room was very helpful and informative not only when he took us to our room but when we would see him on the property during our stay. The fact that we could not get a room with a King size bed was disappointing. If we wanted a King size bed it only came with the upgrade to a suite. Since we weren’t in our room except to sleep there was no need for a suite. Both of the beds in the room are very uncomfortable. The mattresses need to be replaced. The all inclusive package promised when we booked was very misleading. With the package we purchased we were told all the drinks and food were included. Once we ordered something to drink we were told that beer in a can was not included. The beer that was on tap was flat. You could have all you can eat but each menu had items on it with ** showing that that food was not included. The biggest problem with the package we were sold was that the food is included but there are no openings at any of the restaurants. Amazing that if you upgrade your package by $25 a day there were plenty of openings available and then you could have the all you can eat and drink. Some of the restaurants available were not part of the resort. This did allow us to have access to more than just a couple of restaurants (with the $25 upgrade). Unfortunately, the other restaurants did not honor the all you can eat or drink even with the $25 upgrade. There is also a state tax that you have to pay at check out even though when you sign up for your stay the contract states that all the taxes are included. The kayaks that were promised as being available on the literature were not available. The employees told us they only had 4 kayaks available for all the El Cid properties. Needless to say we were not able to get access to the kayaks while we were staying at the resort. The positive experience was that there are other El Cid Resorts in the same area. These resorts were included with our all inclusive package and we were able to visit / eat / drink at those resorts. There was also a free shuttle to the other El Cid properties that helped you get around to the other resorts. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. This was a huge plus. The issues with the food and drinks and the upgrades that we had to pay extra for was very disappointing. I feel like the resort is using a bait and switch tactic to get people to their resort. Since the entire motivation to get someone to their resort is to sell a time share you would think that they would want everyone that visits their resort to have a great experience. After visiting and staying at the Ventus Resort in Puerto Morelos it is perplexing that all El Cid resorts are not run the same.

Amazing service

The staff at the resort were amazing. Rafael at the bell man desk and Adrian on the beach made this stay very memorable!! Friendly, accommodating, happy, remembered who I was all week! They made me feel important.

Great place to stay

While we have been in Mazatlan several times, this was our first time at the El Cid Marina. It was fantastic from the concrete furniture to the impeccable service to the great food. The location is great and grounds beautiful. Would love to go there again.

Love El Cid Marina

Love this place- second time here. It really is my fav spot. Perfect in every way. My only concern was I wondered about how clean the pools were, what the regular maintenance procedures were there. The rooms are beautiful, service is wonderful and so many people return here that the atmosphere is friendly amongst everyone. Staff are wonderful too.
