Relaxing Week at El Cid Marina

greenandgoldfan (Oconto, Wisconsin) on Jun 30, 2022

This was our second time visiting El Cid properties in Mazatlan, having stayed at El Moro seven years ago. We decided to stay at the Marina, thinking it would be quieter than El Moro. We made a good decision. Our stay was peaceful and relaxing. We golfed at the El Cid courses Moro and Castilla (The Marina course was closed due to repairs). The shuttle transportation was great and our driver Leonardo was an awesome ambassador for El Cid. He was prompt and professional, yet friendly. The pool service was very good, hector was our server most of the time. He was prompt with service and very friendly. We ate in the bar at the Marina one evening and the service and food was very good. Most nights we went off site to eat - Ponchos, Gus, Pedro and Lola's, and our favorite Topolo. Rooms are a little dated but overall the rooms met our expectations.

Every single person who worked at this resort treated us with total kindness and concern for our welfare. The property is very well maintained and the restaurants all had excellent service. I highly recommend this resort!

Marina El Cid Beach Hotel & Yacht Club - Beautiful Resort & Great Customer Service

JFTGlobetrotter (Anthem, Arizona) on Jun 16, 2022

We enjoyed excellent customer service from the whole Marina Beach staff, including friendly, personal greetings when passing by. The resort is lush and lovely and we observed continual maintenance of the facilities. The staff is hard-working and very accommodating, helpful, & friendly when interacting with guests. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which was very spacious and had great view of the ocean. We took advantage of dining at a different restaurant of the El Cid resorts each night via the El Cid shuttle 6 of 7 nights. The 7th night, we enjoyed room service pizzas & salads our room with friends also staying at the resort so we could play cards and board games. Breakfasts were enjoyed at the Marina Beach resort restaurants and we really like the fruit smoothies on the menu at La Marina. We thoroughly enjoyed lunches by the resort's pool cafes as we hung out by the pools most of the time. The aquaerobics instructors are great at Marina El Cid in Mazatlan! (We have been to other El Cid Resorts in Puerto Moreles and Cozumel for comparison.) We also enjoyed use of the spa & fitness center - workouts and massages. The beach side of the resort & beach clubhouse was very full on the day the cruise ships were in town and more of those day-pass guests stayed over there with just a few taking the water taxi over the canal to the main resort pools. We hired a "Pulmonia" driver by the hour for a personalized tour of Mazatlan for us and our friends that lasted about 2.75 hours. We loved it and highly recommend "Chuy"! This was our third stay at this resort and we look forward to returning!

Highly recommend, beautiful resort and great staff!! The room was spacious, variety of great pools, and lots of activities to choose from. Located off the bus line so it was easy to hook on the bus and go explore.
