“The best resort stay I've had!! Wonderful stay!!  Every member of the staff paid attention to details. From the moment we rode in the transport van to the moment we left to go home!! Will be sending recommendations to friends and family!!” _ Thomas S., October 2017, Texas.

“Lovely choice. My wife and I selected the El Cid Marina as a spot to celebrate her 73 birthday.  We selected the fifth floor overlooking the marina with a view of the ocean. The staff was exceptionally friendly.  We plan to return in January.” _ Norman M., September 2017, Texas.

“The hotel is beautiful, the service is exceptional! We visited all the other El Cid locations in Mazatlan; the marina was by far our favorite! The hotel is beautiful, the gardens are manicured, and the staff is clearly educated and speaks great English. The resort is small; it gives a feel of "exclusiveness ". We are not fond of huge crowds and tall buildings, so this was the perfect place for us! The food is very good. At the hotel, the staff remembered our names, our favorite drinks... They made a real difference during our stay! The pools are amazing!!! The ocean is awesome!! We never imagined that we would leave this place with a heavy heart and tears in our eyes! We will definitely go back!” _ Sandrine C., October 2017, British Columbia.


“This is an excellent spot if you want to relax.  Excellent staff.  Everyone is very respectful and always willing to help you.  Food was great and lots of drinking if you are a drinker.  My room was really nice, big and clean.  The service is just magnificent.  They cleaned the room twice a day and check to make sure you have clean towels and enough water.”_ Marina C., October 2017, New York.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our El Cid vacation. The resort is lush and beautiful, filled with tropical plants, charming pathways and gorgeous beach areas. There were activities for all age levels from the kids club to the evening shows. We found the variety of foods offered made for wonderful dining experiences. The staff was always friendly and helpful. We loved our visit!”_ Ellen H., October 2017, South Carolina.

“Vacation of a lifetime! Everyone was wonderful! The place is great!  Treated us like king and queen! Everything you need is right there. Stay there or do some of the excursions, either way great time! Food was great, something for everyone!_ Michelle L., October 2017, West Virginia.

 “We have been staying at El Cid for many years. We have always enjoyed our stay there. Over these last 15 years El Cid continues to upgrade with very favorable results. The service has always been exceptional and this is one of the reasons we love coming to El Cid. Looking forward to coming back again year after year.”- Donald B., October 2017, California.


“This was a beautiful resort in a breathtaking location.  Our view was from the 16th floor with oceanfront.  It was absolutely stunning.  We watched the sun set over the ocean every evening.  Also, as we left our room, we had a gorgeous view of the city for our doorway/entrance balcony.” _ Glenda O., October 2017, Florida.

“I would recommend this destination to anyone. Over the top service to say the least. Be certain to make reservations at the numerous dinner restaurants. Take advantage of available tours, the city tour was very interesting. Golf was pretty good too! This is a large complex, take the time to explore it in order to take advantage of the amenities.”_ Douglas J., October 2017, Illinois.

“When we checked in they upgraded our room for no extra fees. The service at the Beach was excellent. This is our second year staying here and we will be returning yearly. This year we tried their food while at the pool and the mariscos (seafood) were excellent.” _ Marisela L., October 2017, California.


“We loved our trip to Mazatlan, Mexico. The people treated us really nice and the service and food was great. We will be going back next year looking for the same accommodations.  The food was great, very Mexican and clean.”_ Tammy R., July 2017, California.
