We spent a week at the El Cid Marina Oct 5-12, 2013 and had such a Wonderful time that we are writing the review now since we have an Early Flight. We were greeted at The Airport with a Warm and informative reception which continued at the hotel lobby. Our House Keeper Olivia Vasquez made us feel at home every day as she made sure that the room was not only Super Clean, Smelling Great, with Chocolate Kisses on the table,but left us New Towel and Tissue ART, on a Daily basis With a different Animal or Artistic design EVERYDAY. She made sure we had what ever we needed to feel "AT HOME" Her bubbly personality made every day a pleasure!!! 1st we spent a couple of days visiting the other resorts which was so convenient with the shuttles that are provided. Then came the shopping in The Golden Zone where you can find pretty much anything you are looking for with the variety of stores there. We participated in Many activities such as the Deer Island Cruise (Day 3) where we rode the Banana boat, Kayaks, and snorkeled, and ate! The Crew aboard the Kolonahe was VERY polite,Informative, and Bilingual. They were very helpful and made sure we were accommodated and didn't need anything.Then (on Day 4) we Chartered a Yacht and fished 22 miles off the coast of Mazatlan catching over 15 Mahi-mahi Fish. On Day 5 We got relaxing massages at The Country Club, and then took The Sunset Tour which was another informative adventure ending as we sailed into the sunset which was so beautiful and romantic. The Sun cascaded across the water and projected at least 6 different colors into the sky as it disappeared into the horizon. On Day 6, we actually sailed our own personal Speed Boat as we took the New Boat Tour and jumped the waves behind the wheel of our very own vessel!!! In between all the activities we Ate, Drank, met new friends and just enjoyed the Mazatlan Life! I recommend that Everyone comes To El Cid to experience Life at its BEST!!! Thank You!!!
