El Cid Granada Hotel
- What's Included
OverviewEl Cid Granada is located in the Golden Zone, within walking distance from the main shopping and dining district. You'll love the pleasant comfort of this three story, Mexican-style, low-rise hotel built around beautiful gardens. The serenity and beauty of the swimming pool are unique. It is located a few steps away from El Cid's Golf and Tennis facilities. Accessible to El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel through Sky Bridge.
Location: Across from the beach and 8 min to downtown Mazatlan.
So.. Let me begin with the good about this place. They keep things clean. Room was spotless. Now the downside..I was in room 2023, the sound of vibrations from the laundry room was bad. I asked several times to move to another room. Nope that isn't happening. Nothing like no sleep.The buffet is in the main building Castilla is very light on selection, and was the same food at all the buffets. The main Castilla buffet, is also busy as any I've ever been in. Had my hat stolen at this buffet.The Beach Castilla buffet was great for the view. Clean cups, clean tables..... not so much. Nothing like first meal of the day. No one had sat there yet for the morning, but the coffee cup hap lipstick on it. Same issue at the swim-up bar. Then there is the over priced wifi. $10 US for the day or $55 for the week. That is bad. The real scare is the internet kiosk. Do not use!!! This is unsecured and not running any security. Will I go back? Not to this resort.
We are neophytes of Mazatlan and fortunately for us arrived by mid afternoon. We were very pleased with everything about the hotel. The check in procedure was quick, friendly and efficient and we were in our huge room overlooking the pool in short order. Such short order that we were poolside in minutes and I'd jumped in shortly after that. We were moving to the El Cid Marina Beach the next day and check out was similarly pleasant...The shuttle service between hotels was terrific. The staff was wonderful. Can't say enough about the way we were eased into our introduction to beautiful Mazatlan.
This was our very first all inclusive vacation and was comparable in food, staff, and facilities as many of the numerous cruises we have been on. The beachside lunch buffet and dinner buffet feature different dishes every day and the staff were extremely attentive bringing drinks before you even realized your glass was empty. Speaking of drinks, they are not watered down, and the tumbler sized Black Russians often necessitated a late afternoon Siesta. We tried the Mexican, Japanese, Italian and Argentinian specialty restaurants but didn't go the Steak house which has a nominal surcharge. Remember to book specialty restaurants a day ahead as they book up quickly. We stayed at the quieter EL Cid Granada across the road from El Castillo and El Moro with their large Vegas style pools and enjoyed relaxing around Granada's peaceful pool area after having our fill of the beach. Overall the resort, food , and staff exceeded our expectations.
I would never stay at El Cid again. They charge $10 per day per device for WiFi. For a couple with two phones and two computers, this would be a ridiculous $40. The floor was gritty. I left my key card in the room when I left and was told there would be a charge for issuing another card. The rooms were nice but did not make up for the other issues.
Our room was remodeled and looked much more up to date. The kitchen cupboards and hot plate area could do with some updating as well. Everything was kept very clean and tidy. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The Granada is very quiet and restful away from the hustle and bustle of the other elcid hotels if that is what you are looking for. Snack menu at the pool area though is VERY limited and bar service could have been better. All around, though, it was a great week as usual.
