  • We spent quite a bit of time on this beach, and had a great time. It's safe even for little ones (we had a one year old with us, and were not worried about her.) When the tide goes out there is a lot ...  more »
  • This is our first time to Mazatlán. Our room was a one bedroom suite. It was huge. The view from our room was great of the water and the city. The food at this hotel was amazing especially at El Conch...  more »

  • This is my 15th trip to Mazatlan and my 3rd year staying at El Cid El Moro. We haven't had a single complaint yet. Our kids love the pool and spend most of the day jumping off the cliff. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner has always been great. We typically go out for dinner but on occasion eat dinner at one of the hotel restaurants. The waiters are fantastic. If you tip them well they'll treat you like a king. We come back every year and have no intentions of staying somewhere else.
  • This place is awesome! The rooms are spacious, clean and updated. The location is excellent; very easy to walk out resort to local restaurants and bars. The staff is outstanding!!!!!!!!! The only complaints I would have is only one bar open at night and there was some construction off the lobby area but is to be expected for an older hotel. Definitely would go back!
  • Second time back at Mazatlan and nothing has changed... which is a good thing. Always enjoy the amount of foods available and vicinity to urban activities. Wonderful and helpful staff keep the facilities clean, while providing an excellent experience.
  • Clean, nice pool and of course right on the beach. But all week has been confusing and we get a different answer to every question every person we ask. It’s like no one knows what is going on. I will say our maid Lourdes was amazing and so nice. She really went above and beyond to make sure everything was nice when we got back. Never any shortages of towels or bathroom products. But as far as some other interactions went... We called the front desk for a knife to cut limes in our room and it took an hour and a half and five phone calls to get the knife. The “full kitchen” is kind of a joke. The stove is old and doesn’t work well and there wasn’t even the before-mentioned sharp knife or even a spatula. No salt and pepper either. The pull out bed is not comfortable. I mean pull outs are never great, but this one was extra rough. We asked about the different “dinner and show” nights they have and no one seems to know what night is which theme. But I will say if you can figure out which night is the traditional Mexican fiesta night when you’re here, it’s really cool and has good food! Open bar too. The drinks are weak, so make sure to order an extra shot to add to it. We went to one of their sale pitch things to buy as a timeshare and they said it would be no pressure and only take about an hour. Two plus hours later and a lot of pressure.... we were very aggravated. I wouldn’t buy this place as a timeshare though, is the bottom line. But the city is a great place to visit. I’d like to come and stay somewhere else where I’m not so confused the whole time.
  • As a family resort, this place was lacking. Maybe I'm spoiled because I've only ever been on cruises and this was my first time at a resort, but I was very disappointed. The food was lacking- very bland and the beans of all things were very watered down. Also, I'm a vegetarian and there was very little that didn't have meat or fish in it. The customer service at the resort was very poor. A group of 30 of us came in for a destination wedding and different families came at different times so we ended up in all parts of the resort and varying floors which was fine except they put a single woman in our group on a floor all alone and wouldn't move her. I was deeply disappointed at how they treated the bride and groom. They got zero special treatment. The beds were horribly uncomfortable (only 1 person in our group got a nice bed) and they tried to charge the groom $100 (yes, DOLLARS- not pesos) to borrow a wheelchair to help his mom to her room. There were 2 couples who upgraded and had features that were better like adult only areas so they enjoyed themselves, but for a family, this is not a recommendation I would give if you're looking for something elite.
