We recently returned from our first trip to Mazatlan at El Cid Marina Beach Hotel and had no idea what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise. We had a one bedroom suite on the sixth floor with an ocean view and It was fabulous. Armando the manager and Rogelio, another manager, were very very attentive and helped to make our stay a great adventure. All the staff, including at the restaurant were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and well maintained. The "Marina" has two huge pools with snack bars. There is a private beach with palapous that you can take a water taxi to. El Cid has 3 other hotels in Mazatlan and you have a complementary shuttle to them plus the Country Club with Golf Courses and fitness center. There are many tours to enjoy. We especially appreciated the City Tour of old Mazatlan including the cliff divers and Cathederal.
I highly recommend the El Cid Marina Beach Hotel !!
