This was our fifth consecutive year of staying at the Marina El Cid, and like a good bottle of wine you just want to keep coming back for more. Incredible staff throughout the resort, competent, friendly and very anxious to please. First class.

We recently returned from our 3rd stay at El Cid Marina. Not only was the weather perfect but also was our stay. The staff, food and accomodations are second to none. We spent a lot of our time this year at the beach. Just a very short ride on the water taxi, we were always welcomed by Philipe. The beach...

Great staff nice setting but private beach is quite a distance from the hotel. Fidel the pool bar manager is a gem.

My wife and I traded on our Wyndham points to this property for a week. Its a very pleasant place with nice but not spectacular condos with modest kitchens.

We visited Mazatlan for the first time in January, staying for one week here, and another week in their sister resort, El Moro beach. The Marina is a nicer, quieter resort than the El Cid mega resort (El Moro, Castilla, Granada). Being a smaller resort, the Marina feels more friendly, and is easy to get around. The views of the...

“The sofa sleeper is extremely firm and very uncomfortable for adult family members. We were "upgraded" from a 1 bedroom at ElCid El Moro Beach to "an equivalent 1 bedroom" unit at El Cid Marina Beach hotel. Although the Marina Beach hotel is very nice, the rooms are not equivalent. The 1 bedroom unit at El Moro Beach has two double beds that are much better for adults as well as 2 full bathrooms. The Marina Beach 1 bedroom had a king size bed and only 1 bathroom. The 1 bedroom unit at El Moro Beach that we had originally booked would have worked out much better for 4 adults than the 1 bedroom unit at Marina Beach. Although the representative assured us that the rooms were equivalent at the resorts, be aware that they are very different. Marina Beach would be fine with small children, but not adults unless you prefer privacy over bed comfort. We did have a lot of little mites crawling around the room and on the kitchen table, but this may be normal for the area.”

“Rooms nearer to 332 - 342 etc are quieter as they minimize traffic noise by being being the old Faro resort. Nearer to the lobby can be a bit noisy at times but the resort is always planing trees to minimize this going forward.”
