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.
I love everything about it except they are not very good at keeping there golf course in half decent shape... the course has now turn to a cow pasture and very hard to golf on.... we paid a lot of money on due and should atake least get a half decentry fairways a greens ... in mine a a lot more people we need a real greens keeper the golf course is very embarrassing for my guests....
We had a great time at the El Cid Granada in Mazatlan. Although the hotel is older it is well kept and clean. We had use of the facilities at the El Cid Castillo and Morrow which was connected by a pedestrian overpass. The staff were great and the food good. The resort has a fantastic in house bakery! Just a note, the hotel credit is just a coupon book for tourist attractions in the area. Overall a very good relaxing time.
I will keep this review very simple, not a good place to stay. The receptionist was not very friendly, gave us no information regarding internal rules like needing to make reservations to one of the restaurants 24 hrs in advance. We try going to one Restaurant and although it was empty we couldn't get in because we had no reservations. I will be visiting Mazatlan again but will stay at another place.
We went to this resort in March 2017. This was our first time in Mazatlan. The Sunwing organizer on our bus was great. He was very informative and funny. We got to our hotel and had to walk across the street from the main hotel (Castilla). We were checked in very quickly. When we got to our room we were quite surprised at how nice our room was. Two beds, a kitchenette and a very large balcony. We arrived late in the day so we couldn't make any dinner arrangements so we had to go to the buffet. It was okay. They have a different theme every night so some nights the buffet was better than others. The shows were good and some were even funny. We found out quickly that we had to make dinner arrangements the day before. We tried all of them on our holiday and the best ones were the Mexican and Italian. All of these are over at the other hotel. The Argentine restaurant is at the Granada. The food was good but not very much Argentine specialties. I guess they specialize in beef but since being from Alberta I was hoping for something more.The pool and lunch places at the Castilla are very very busy and not all of them are included with the all inclusive package. We really enjoyed the Granada because it was a lot quieter and the staff there were amazing!!! Every morning at breakfast we were served Bailey's and coffee. You only had to ask for toast once and then they would bring it to you every morning. All the staff were wonderful at the Granada but Anna and Ismael really took care of us our whole time at the Granada.After a couple of days exploring the other hotels that were included we decided to stay at the Granada during the day and join in in the activities. What a lot of fun. Our activities director's name was Aldo. He was great at getting everyone to join in. Bingo and poker were the busiest games.All in all this place was fantastic and would definitely recommend this to everyone.
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.
