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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • DaveThornbury :

The resort is very beautiful, it has a private beach, couple of pools, 3 places to eat at pool and beach plus two great restaurants. The terrace restaurant is by far the best.Don't do the all inclusive as you will never get your money's worth. The few times we ate all 3 meals and drank a tons we never reached even a $130 combined for the two of us. The restaurants at the other two El CID property's which are included either way are awful. We ate at the Italian restaurant and the Mexican at ElCid el Moro yuck. Those property's are in need of renovations badly.Lots of great tours offered- check out the following: favor teller (food tour) , Copala, the tequila tour Many great restaurants in downtown- $6 Uber ride away.Staff is friendly and all speak English Take the sunset cruise for awesome pictures

Great Vacation Stay

We spent 3 months at El Cid Marina Beach Hotel. From the time we arrived until the day we left the VIP room staff looked after us. Special thanks to Emilia, Andrea, Alejandro and Maria. Thank you to Armando for making sure our accomodations were in order. Thank you to the staff in activities. Christain, Andrea, Monse and Hugo made sure our day to day activities (bingo, cards, Spanish lessons and water aerobics) were always well run. Thank you to the Iguana Pool Staff - Fidel and Eddie for the exceptional service. Thank you to Lupita in the LaMarina Restaurant for the best omelettes for breakfast and to Miguel, Daniel, Ana and Victoria for the great service for meals. Thank you to Jorge, Eric and Girardo at the Terraza Bar - always big smiles and exceptional service. Thank you to the pool staff - Jose Juan, Antonio, Rodolpo and Javier - service with a smile. As anyone can tell by the above, our stay at El Cid Marina Beach Hotel was like coming home. These people work very hard and always have smiles on their faces. We would like to thank them all and look forward to our stay in 2018.

Our stay at the Marina was absolutely wonderful. Our room, one bedroom suite, was s spacious and vey well kept. All the staff at the Marina were so friendly and ready and waiting to assist. We loved sitting at the dock every morning after breakfast. We also enjoyed the shuttle and being able to visit the other El Cid properties. The food was also very good. Should we decide to go back to Mexico again this would certainly be the place we would go. This was our second visit there.

Great property!

We really enjoyed this hotel and property. Staff and service were extremely friendly and welcoming. The set-up and resort itself is quite gorgeous and relaxing. Our room and accommodation (studio with kitchenette) were huge, comfortable, clean and lovely. The food at both restaurants in this location is generally fresh, creative and delicious, and actually a real pleasure! Jose, the Maitre D and manager of the main restaurant is a delightful and classy man who truly enjoy his job and goes well beyond the call of duty to make you feel special and welcome. Many great and friendly staff. We would definitely enjoy returning in the future.

Pleasantly Surprised

Having earlier spent a week at El Cid on Cozumel, we weren't expecting such a large presence in Mazatlan. We found all the people there from the front desk to the maids to be very friendly and helpful. The rooms were kept clean and towels were plentiful, including washcloths, which are often missing in Mexican resorts unless requested. We were warmly greeted every time we entered the restaurant, and the wait staff were very friendly and were willing to accommodate any special requests. The food was very good, however, the menu does not change, and by the end of the week, we had tried most dishes we were interested in. We did not try the buffet. The Marina property is much more peaceful than El Moro or Castilla, the other nearby El Cid Resorts. Private beach access from the marina is by free water taxi, which runs constantly. We were there on a special all-inclusive promotion and found that wifi and some food items were not fully covered without an upgrade. The resort felt very secure and safe with many strollers out after dark. Mazatlan has become safe again with tourism being so important to their economy.
