The staff was very friendly and helpful.. We had a blast on karaoke night. Very nice rooms we had a huge two bedroom on the 4th floor absolutely no noise at all, nice pools, no where near as crowded as the other El Cids in Mazatlan. We had a great time.

Upon arriving at the El Cid, we were greeted by Carmen, one of the timeshare receptionists. She was kind and helpful and just a beautiful person to get to know. We did attend a sales breakfast and thought the salespeople were arrogant and rude. Also, be aware you are not in the USA and it is likely the salespeople at... More
