Really enjoyed visiting Mazatlan, Mexico for two weeks. We stayed at El Cid Beach Resort and found it very nice. It has a little something for everyone. Our room was in the towers. It was a one bedroom suite. It could have used updated appliances, but everything was in workable condition and kept very clean on a daily basis. We did see that other rooms on our floor had new counters and stainless appliances in there kitchens. This hotel has three pools and one Hot Tub. The two larger pools have activities going on all day and they are heated at this time of year. The smaller pool is very quiet, no activities and the water is not heated. The hot tub is a great way to end the day catching up with the people staying at the hotel. Everyone talks about the places they traveled to around the city, tours they went on, restaurants they went to in case you desire to venture off the property. The restaurants on property are very good. If you like to walk on the beach there is plenty of beach to do it on. If you want a challenge take a bus (centro) to the Lighthouse and climb up the mountain to see the view of the view of the city. It was a fun trip. We would return to El Cid Beach Resort in Mazatlan again.
