El Cid Resorts - Reviews


"This year made the 8th (or 9th?) year that I have returned to my "home away from home" at El Cid Marina in Mazatlan. I love taking my family here - and staying by myself on occasion. It is always clean, well-maintained, and the staff treats each guest like family. Even during the pandemic time we felt safe - precautions taken were excellent." @vickirhaddock. December 2020. Neligh, Nebraska.

"The resort has done everything to make us all feel safe. They had glass between the food and the customers at the buffet and workers wore gloves and masks when filling our plates. We were required to wear masks everywhere unless eating or drinking or at the pool.
We were impressed." Deer P. December 2020. Tracy, California.

"Great place to visit a lot of things to there. Very good sea food, very good restaurants, and beautiful places. Places visited was safe for those who is concerned for dangerous place. Great beach . And nobody can improve waiters service, is really great!" @mauricioariasv. November 2020

"El Cid’s motto is “Welcome Home”. The staff at El Cid Marina take it very seriously. Their care of their guests through the Covid 19 pandemic is outstanding. Masks were required of guests and staff at all times except eating. Upon entering the hotel, they sprayed our luggage plus hand sanitizer, a solution for your shoes & temperature check & mask of course! We felt very safe. Much so than being in our home state of Texas! Everywhere we went in Mazatlan had similar procedures. I highly recommend El Cid Marina in Mazatlan!" Clydene J. October 2020.


"Could not believe the level of cleanliness and the commitment to our safety while at the resort. Staff was amazing. Food was amazing, weather was great. I will return! You should go, this resort does not disappoint!!" Jason G. December 2020. Vancouver Island, Canada.

"We've been to Hotel Marina El Cid 2 times now and will keep coming back. We went the week between Christmas and New Years. Everyone was following Covid19 guidelines. Food at the restaurants was excellent and had enough of a selection for all the picky eaters in my family. Service was excellent." @jbird2021. December 2020. Chicago, Illinois.

"Very impressed with Covid prep and protocols. Service and choices very good despite Covid. Facilities immaculate as always, and restaurant selection reasonable despite El Cid having to limit guests due to Covid. Completely at ease and thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks as a family of 6." David W. December 2020. Surrey, Canada.


"Winter escape and freedom from all the daily worries- absolutely loved it. All staff face masked. Everything super clean. Smorgasbords had servers. Guests must wear masks in buildings. Absolutely loved everything being done and all the new protocols." @JCZA_H2O. December 2020.

"The entire team made us feel safe and protected. From the time I broke the seal on our door, demonstrating that the room had been sanitized, to the serving of every meal, everything was executed in a manner to preserve our safety. As this was a repeat visit, it still amazes me how individuals remember our names from visit to visit. Family!" @Bamsz59. December 2020.  Montreal, Canada.

"It was a wonderful girl's trip! Very Covid compliant....we felt very safe! Our room was perfect. The Junior Suite worked out well for three women who needed their own space. We had amazing meals and a wonderful birthday celebration!" @karendevine2017. December 2020. Champaign, Illinois. 


"We were at La Ceiba for our dallert138th Holiday at Christmas time. The staff were wonderful and the safety precautions so well done. We felt very safe and we in turn followed all the safety precautions to ensure that staff was safe too." @dallert13. December 2020.

"4 day getaway to Cozumel and couldn't be happier with El Cid. The Covid protocols in place were exceptional from the time you walk through the front door. We stayed in a studio and it was perfect. The small kitchenette was all we needed to prepare a light breakfast and lunch for trekking about the island. Staff was friendly and courteous. Great snorkeling right in front of the hotel. It is very close to the cruise terminal, but no ships were in so it was no problem. We can't wait to go back." @lovetotravel0922. December 2020. Folly Beach, South Carolina.

"Nice place with a very friendly staff. We felt very safe, and the staff was equipped to keep themselves safe. This is a great place to have some outdoor fun!!! There is a reef right by shore for snorkeling and scuba diving!" @MinnesotaHutchinson. December 2020.


"The Covid-19 health protocols were amazing at El Cid. You could not have felt any safer.
We were there from Sept to Dec and had our temperature taken every time you walked through a door plus hand sanitizer. We applaud El Cid for what they are doing to protect themselves as well as all their guests. Great job, keep up the good work." @bguinn. September 2020.

"I felt very safe at ElMoro withe the following health protocols implemented:
1. Masks were required for everyone within public areas This included guests and workers. I wish this would be implemented in the US
2. Temperature checks were mandatory to enter buildings, restaurants and to play golf
3. Plenty of sanitizing stations throughout the property. A few more could be added at pool areas
4 social distancing at restaurants was implemented by spacing out tables. Plus outdoor dining was available
5. transportation seats were limited to 6 guests at a time
6. Beach areas were roped off to keep vendors away from guests and workers
7. All buffets were served by workers and not guests
The food was exceptional as always. I missed the themed nights at La Concha that were available prior to the pandemic. The drinks were excellent and plentiful. I will be returning in 2021 for another safe vacation." Clay D. December 2020.

"We always enjoy returning to El Cid El Moro. The staff is very friendly and always makes you feel like family! We were impressed with the protocols to address Covid precautions. This trip we had friends come during part of our stay, and they were equally impressed!" @azgrammy5. November 2020. Sun City, Arizona.


"I have been to El Cid several times over the last 8 years and have enjoyed my time. The staff is always helpful and polite. I enjoyed the safety measures due to the pandemic with constant cleaning of surfaces, disinfecting of new guests luggage, temperature checks, and providing hand sanitizers when entering each building and restaurant. I do with their was more enforcement of mask-wearing when walking around indoors." @slm552. November 2020.


"We really recommend this hotels. They are nice, hot water to shower and very clean. What I like the most was the attention that we received. All the employees were super nice, respectful and helpful. The Food was excellent too. I really recommend your hotels!" @rosavallesillo. October 2020. Omaha, Nebraska.
