You go girl! Yes, you do have access to all resorts. In fact you can go to other resorts in Mazatlan, swim, order a drink or snack and just relax. Come and enjoy.

We were just booked into the Castelli for a week AI and were actually moved to the El Moro building. That building has a pool that only timeshare guests can use, it was unheated anyway so it didn't matter. The other pools you can use and they are heated. We didn't go across to the Granada as we had lots of fun by the Castelli pool where kids and adults both have fun with the animation team.

beachbummum - Which pool is only for the timeshare guest? Is it the small one in the back with all the "rocks"?

Hey SaskieGirl.

What dates are you going to Mexico. I'm from Winnipeg and myself and 3 of my buds are heading from March 26th to April 2nd. We are staying at the Castilla.

The pool that AI guests couldn't use was the last pool on the left if you are facing the hotels from the beach. It is in front of the small El Moro building, has the hottub and was right in front of our room. The kids snuck into the hottub many times but apparently they watch who sits around the pool, which we never did, as it was freezing.

By the way, the Granada is directly across the street from the Castilla and El MOro. The El Cid Marina is quite a ways north of where you are and is not so much a party place....you can shuttle up there free with the EL Cid Shuttle....but not where you want to go and party. The Castilla is the part place.

Basically if you buy a drink, you are welcome to use any pool you want.

Follow the happy hours.

With your package yes you will have access to all of the El Cid resorts....the Castilla is where all of the action is....not worth your time to go to the others...there is a shuttle that picks you up and drops you off at each of the resorts...at no charge.

El Cid Marina is pretty quiet, Granada is across the street, a smaller, older hotel...the El MOro is directly beside you...you are at the Party and action place.

Also across the street is the clubhouse for the El Cid Golf course-that's where the gym and tennis courts are. You have the best beach access where you are...El Cid Marina is on the marina, not directly on the beach, Granada, not on the beach either. If you decide to go somewhere different to eat and want to go to one of the others....maybe don't! haha...the food is not any better there than where you are.
