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.

A lot of highs and lows

We stayed at the Marina for a week in October, 2016. The weather was uncharacteristicly very hot and humid for this time of year. The AC in the room seemed to struggle with the humidity and made the temperature in the room uncomfortable at times. The views from our rooms (442 & 443) were amazing, ocean, pool and the inlet. For the most part, the staff was eager to help, full of interesting information and made relaxing by the pool the perfect vacation experience. We loved being able to take the shuttles to the other hotels and use their pools and restaurants as part of our all inclusive package. The food was amazing everywhere we went! We also loved the nightly show at the Moro hotel. It was silly and so much fun!We had one issue which was unpleasant to deal with. The shower in our master bedroom began to leak water from the light above the shower. It slowly got worse so we stopped by the front desk to let them know. They said someone would be right up, and he was actually there before we even had walked back to our rooms. We were glad they were taking a look right away, but as it was around 10pm, we assumed they would fix it the next day. This guy looked at it and said he needed a part and would be back in 10 minutes. After waiting 30 minutes, we were ready to go to bed so we called the front desk to see what had happened. They said there was a shift change so they would send someone else up. The second person took a look and realized just what a big job it would be. He promised to be back in 15 minutes. It was now almost 11pm so we asked if he could come tomorrow. He said he promised to be right back. What actually happened was that he went to the front desk in order to have them speak with us and make sure we understood what was happening, which we really appreciated. He would come the next day and it would take an hour, which was exactly what happened. It was a pretty frustrating situation to deal with but we were happy the ending was good.

Business trip to Mazatlan

I went to the resort with a group of co-workers and I loved my stay at El Cid Marina. We were upgraded to the Elite All-Inclusive and its totally worth it. We had the chance to Visit all Cid properties and was really amaze with the services they provide.

Dream Vacation

I loved the ElCid Marina! The view, luxury, staff, food and more was above and beyond excellent. They go out of their way to make sure your stay is what you desire.. my only regret is not staying longer!

Outstanding and rip

There are several El Cid resorts in Mazatlan but this is by far the best. It has a more relaxing atmosphere than the others. The pools are the best! Because we have a large group, we booked the presidential suite...wow! The staff has been outstanding. There is a free shuttle from here to the Golden Zone. The only drawback is that there is no beach access ( but that's when you grab the shuttle to the other locations).

What a Vacation!

The El Cid Marina Beach Hotel is the perfect place for your holiday in Mazatlan. Its beauty and location can't be beat. Every single member of the staff made us feel welcome, special and pampered. Even the iguanas were friendly. Our housekeeper, Olivia Vazquez, was amazing and absolutely the best we have ever encountered at any hotel anywhere! Olivia, alone, would be enough reason for us to return to El Cid Marina. She went out of her way to be sure we enjoyed our stay. As I noted before, the entire staff was top-notch, but Olivia was a super-star. We will definitely be back.
