Our Opinion
This hotel is quite far from the Golden Zone. It's a big complex with a beach that you have to take a boat to, so it's not very convenient, but the pools are fantastic.

Located in the marina area of Mazatlan, this full-service, all-suites hotel with convenient kitchenettes, boasts two pools and a fabulous restaurant. A shuttle will take you across the marina to the beach two minutes away, and guests can also enjoy a complimentary shuttle to its sister property, El Cid Castilla Beach, and use of the facilities there.

Location: Oceanfront, 35 minutes from Rafael Buelna International Airport and 10 kilometers to downtown Mazatlan.

El Cid Marina

My trip was ten days. I stayed as a guest of millionair members. It was my third time visiting. The staff at the hot tub and the beach make me and everyone there feel welcome. I don't know what the deal was, but the service in the restraunts was really under staffed and slow. It was saved by the food. My room was a one bed suite. It was very clean and comfortable. If I was in a position to purchase a points program, this is where I would do it.

Resort & Staff

You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay, and the staff are all wonderful. They way beyond what they need to do to make you happy. Best place we have ever stayed. Can't beat it ! The food is good at all the places they have, the pools were meticulously cleaned daily, and they were closing the kitchen one night, and we came in, and they opened enough to make us something.

Fidel and Olivia are the best!

We have been coming to El Cid Marina Beach Hotel for over 15 years and we love it. The location is great and the employees there are wonderful. We always try to get into Building A and request a room that Olivia will be our housekeeper. She is fabulous and is so caring and thoughtful and does a great job cleaning our room. This year she put a sign which said Welcome Home on the wall near the kitchen out of balloons! And, for Valentine's Day she decorated our bedroom with Rose petals and swans made out of rolled towels and red & white Heart balloons hanging from the ceiling.The La Grutta pool bar and restaurant would not be the same without Fidel. He makes sure that everyone has just what they want. If there is something you would like for lunch which is not on the menu he will make sure you get it! He remembers how you like your drinks and your name! The La Marina restaurant could use some help. The staff is very nice, but, sometimes what we ordered one time and decide to have again doesn't have the same quality as the first time! Communication between the waiters and the kitchen is not the best and the atmosphere can be very chaotic!! We really like the LaTerraza restaurant which is outdoors. It's a much smaller restaurant and has good service and food. Over the years we've been coming to El Cid we truly enjoy the property, the staff, and the friendliness of everyone there. They keep improving and updating. We really enjoy staying there.
