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.

Overview
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.

My vacation at El CID Marina

The property is beautiful and very close to the beach. The food is good but not great. Although Buffets are always available, you can order off the menu ,which was my preference. There are 2 pools and food and drinks are served at both. There is a new fitness center. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Shuttles are available to three other El Cid properties and the golf course near by.

An amazing place

The El Cid Marina Beach Hotel is located in a lovely setting overlooking the ocean. There are two large pools with pool bars and two lovely restaurants with entertainment. The amenities are very nice, but the best part of the hotel would be the people who work there. They truly make everyone feel at home and appreciate very much your being there.

Michael & Karla Wedding

Registration quick and easy. Information about services and amenities readily available. Room very clean with full kitchen area and supplies. Ironing board rather small for adults. Fantastic view from fourth floor. Food, especially buffet breakfast and wedding reception very good. Massage was not up to a standard expected.

Amazing Relaxing Vacation

We just got back a week ago from our amazing vacation at the El Cid Marina Beach. We celebrated our 21st Wedding Anniversary and never wanted to leave the resorts. We loved our ocean view Jr. Suite Elite room. It was big, a lot of light. Maybe the only thing is beds were not super comfortable. We stayed at the El Cid Marina Beach and also spent time at the El Cid Morro beach resort. We loved the beaches and the pools. Kids would love the pools. I loved the shuttles to go back and forth. I loved we could go to any of the restaurants or spend time at the other resorts. The food was great. We ate seafood everyday for lunch and dinner and loved it. I especially loved that we could order off of a menu and didn't have eat at the buffet at dinner if we didn't want to. The service was outstanding. We travel a lot and this resort had the best customer service so far. We never had to get up from our chairs at the beach or at any of the pools for food or drinks ever. Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful for anything we needed. I want to especially name a few of the people that helped us and thank them for their awesome service. Alexis the bell boy, Jose Luis at Marina Beach, All the waiters in the upstairs restaurant, and I think his name was Ramon at the terrace bar downstairs for getting us food real late when we thought everything was closed. Andrea at the Elite bar, she was so cute, very friendly and helpful. Francisco Renteria and Thomas at the Morro beach and Morro Elite pool. All the hostesses and waiters at all the restaurants. I know I am probably forgetting someone. These people especially made our trip fantastic. I was amazed to see all the returning guests hug and greet the workers when they arrived.The workers all seemed like they had a good working environment and seemed happy. I am planning to return to this resort with my kids and grandkids. We LOVED IT!!!

Great Escape

We love staying that Marina, it is a great way to escape the world and just relax. The staff is so friendly and caring they seem like family by the end of your trip. One of my fav things about this resort is I don't have to take an elevator down 20 floors just to get to the lobby to then walk to the pool. Every pool is so close and accessible- forget your sunscreen you can be up in your room within 5 minutes. The food options are great too- you can either stay and enjoy the amazing Surf and Turf or you can venture over to the other El Cid properties if you want more options. Every few years we end up back at this resort and every time we leave happy!
