My husband and I just returned from a week at the El Cid Marina. It is a great place to stay and the service is wonderful. We spent most of our time at the deep water pool by the Iguana Pool Restaurant. Great name since the place has several friendly Iguana's who come up hoping to be feed the vegetables that you do no eat. They are like puppies who come up and will take a veggies from you. The good thing is that they do not fight when one gets what the other wants. Eddy and Fiedel were fabulous waiters and all in all everyone working at the Marina treated us like we were the only ones staying at the resort. We really enjoy Mazatlan and can not wait to go back in February.
