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.

I took a group of 12 friends to golf at El Cid and we had a fantastic time.Everyone at the resort was so helpful. Alfredo the golf concierge, and Adrian the Golf professional accommodated our group with such professionalism. The food at El Cid marina was AMAZING!!!Our group is already planning our next trip to visit them again. Valerio was also a great help to our group. Thank you all for making our trip a memorable experience.

Best first experience out of the U.S.

I was very impressed with all of El Cid personnel. They were all kind no matter which resort you were at. The majority of my time there was at the marina. Such Amazing people and service. I loved the marina restaurant the most out of all of the restaurants I ate at. I was impressed with not only our server helping us, but the manager, busser, and even the chef asking if I needed anything more. I especially loved the piano player who interacted with me and my friends. The beaches were nice and clean, the pool areas were great, and anything that we did through El Cid went very smoothly! I highly recommend this resort to anyone planning on traveling to Mazatlan!

MAKING THE RIGHT FOOD CHOICES ABROAD

MAKING THE RIGHT FOOD CHOICES ABROADNot long ago I saw a spectacular photo of a sunset in the Express issue of the Washington Post. It showed a sky flooded with intense reds and oranges. The foot of the picture said “Sunset in Mazatlan”. The photo reminded me of a balmy early evening I spent during a recent vacation at Mazatlan’s El Cid Marina and Yatch Club Hotel (locally known as El Cid Marina). My husband and I were having a salmon and wine appetizer with American friends in its garden restaurant The Terrace -which overlooks the marina and the Pacific Ocean- waiting for the sun to come down. A wonderful candlelight dinner followed when the sun disappeared like if the ocean had swallowed a gigantic ball of fire. A full moon started passing down slowly through what looked like a constellation of stars shining in the vast darkness of the sky. Fortunately, we watched those marvels of nature regularly at El Cid Marina in Mazatlan. After watching them in awe and while we dined, our conversation turned to the food at this hotel. We talked about taste adjustments: traveling abroad means one has to adjust to the fact that nothing tastes like food at home. Same name dishes are different. In the U.S. tacos are hard corn shells filled with ground meat, lettuce and tomatoes topped with sour cream. In Mexico they are rolled corn tortillas stuffed with pieces of beef, chicken or pork. Another example is guacamole. In the U.S. there are many ways to prepare it. In Mexico it is avocado so mashed and creamy that it is called guacamole. In another get-together we talked about choices. At El Cid Marina restaurants food is international. The breakfast buffet and menu offer various health juices, yogurts, cereals, toasts and egg dishes to taste, prepared by a cook in front of you. Some times I indulged going all Mexican by choosing chilaquiles, refried beans, corn tamales or quesadillas. Add to that Mexican specialties such as arrachera and a basket of a treat Mexicans eat for breakfast: sweet rolls. We usually had a light lunch by the Calypso or Iguanas pools. In the restaurants their a la carte menu include very fine food, like Lobster Thermidor or New York Steak. Mazatlan is a port. Shrimp is always BIG. Sea food is always fresh. My favorite dish was Fish Menier. Or we chose the buffet . Every evening of the week there is a Night Theme: Shrimp, Tex-Mex, International, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Italian and B.B.Q. Night. We liked that at the end of the dinner buffet counter there was always a cook -or two- preparing a dish for you.There is a large number of dishes to choose from at The Marina Restaurant, plus those in the buffet, which makes an extraordinary number of food selections. But numbers are not everything. At El Cid Marina restaurants we looked for taste, (very good); price (Affordable. The Nights buffet was 290 pesos, including tax and service. The peso exchange was 17 per dollar) ); and health safety. We did some research and found they have 3 recent Certificates of Achievement on food safety, management principles, trust in the handling of food health, and fulfilling the quality of the highest hygienic standards in the handling and preparation of food, from internationally recognized health- safe organizations ,including one from the United States.I went to El Cid Marina to have a good vacation time of entertainment and relaxation. It was a plus that, in addition, by making the right choices I had a wonderful time EATING! Yolanda S. Kasofsky from Washington DC
