    Beautiful El Cid Marina resort

    The facility itself was beautiful and beautifully maintained. But the people working at El Cid Marina was the high point for us. EVERYONE was helpful, polite, and happy. All of our questions were answered with a smile and people at the front desk, concierge, and tours desk were polite and very helpful. WE enjoyed the sunset tour, massage, downtown area, and the food. Our room was very clean and spacious. We highly recommend El Cid Marina Resort.

    Thanks to all the staff for a great stay. Fidel, at the Iguana pool is just the very best. The Bellmen, Raphael, Julio, David, Leonardo, Luis and all the rest of them are the greatest ever, the maid service is wonderful. We appreciate all the help that was given throughout our stay. Thank you to all.

    El Cid #1

    Have stayed here 3 times now, and everything is great from rooms to customer service, I recommend hotel marina to whoever is going to visit mazatlan. I also like where the hotel sits. It is away from the malecón. At least from all the noise and cars etc etc..

    teerible booking procedure

    We booked some room with quita time in advance for certain number of persons, once we arrived they didn't have a room as the room we booked available. so they gave us another room with less beds!!! they told us they will send an "extrabed" that didn´t arrived because they didn´t had enough they had the same problem with others customers, so basically they overseld the rooms and they were very bad solving it, it was very time consuming ans disgusting..!!
