Best customer service!!

Would recommend Thu, Oct 22, 2015
Last month, my husband and I took a family trip to Mazatlan for the first time. We traveled with a few family members and booked 3 separate rooms at El Cid Castilla Beach, all of them were all inclusive packages. The pricing was very reasonable and the level of service was by far the best we have gotten. The staff was very friendly and inviting from the moment we arrived, we did not have to wait to get checked in and we are able to get a room a few hours prior to regular check in time. When we arrived we were informed that they upgraded all our rooms from pool view to ocean view, great plus!!! They also offered us beverages, including alcoholic, as we were getting checked in. Our concierge Juan M. was more than willing to accommodate our requests as we did also ask to switch one of the rooms so we could all be closer. He also worked with us in allowing a later check out time so we could take better advantage of our stay. The food was excellent, the rooms were clean and maintained daily, and the amenities as well as entertainment made our stay more pleasant. We will definitely be staying there again on our next trip to Mazatlan!

I have stayed at many places (hotels & apartments) in Mazatlan and this is by far the cleanest, most modern place yet. I don't see how it can get any better, it has location, security, shops, restaurants, pools, but the cleanliness is what I appreciated the most..... spotless!!

We loved the country tour, the guide was informative, the food fantastic, and the cost was extremely reasonable. If I went again, we would stay at the same place, it was that much fun.

Annoying all-inclusive, old room but nice views

Would not recommend Tue, Nov 25, 2014
My stay got off to a bad start after waiting in line for 45 minutes to check-in only to be told I had to check in somewhere else! The main front desk was understaffed but for some reason there were 3 guys standing around behind the desk doing nothing and when asked said they couldn't help. Then went to "Club Elite" to check in for my reservation and had to sign for a tv remote, lock for the safe, towel card, some form promising i wouldn't bring food into the room, and then one tried to explain the all-inclusive--no, no don't go to this restaurant, can't use it at this one. I asked about coffee in the room, no you have to pay for that, no free water, oh and internet is $100 pesos per day and you have to pay in advance. I don't believe they know what all-inclusive means. Got down to the pool next to my room and was told I could only get food at the other pool. I ordered a drink and the guy says "sorry we close at 6 but it was 10 minutes before 6. So I had to walk to the lobby and get a watered down drink there, the bar drinks were awful, there was very little alcohol. The food was pretty bad except for the breakfast buffet which had lots of fresh fruit and an omelet bar.Not sure what the appeal of this place is, to me it seemed tacky and seedy but I suppose it's cheap. The beach scene was very annoying with a parade of vendors hawking their stuff and invading your space. There is a roped off area that meant nothing as the vendors would shove their jewelry and stuff very close. I dozed off only to be awakened by a guy holding the reins of 2 horses and yelling "Lady you want to ride on the beach!" Ugh..... The best thing about this tacky rundown hotel was the oceanfront rooms, wonderful. I could hear the crashing waves all night. The room soundproofing was pretty good, I never heard my neighbors and on one side I had a family with at least 8 people in the room. I would likely never return to this resort.

I'LL BE BACK !

Would recommend Tue, Nov 18, 2014
Check in was flawless. Took only about 15 mn. Marisela Moran and her crew at the "Club Elite" had everything ready and were very helpful. I did have a problem with the room safe. Gave them a call and within 5 minutes a tech was knocking on the door, and he had the safe opened in no time. The hotel is HUGE and my daughter really liked the huge pool. Special thanks to our poolside waiter Ramon. Made sure we had plenty to drink and everything he recommended on the menu was excellent. Can't really say much about the many restuarantes that are in the hotel, because we chose to eat out on the town. Best shrimp in the world ! We did enjoy the breakfast buffet. Eggs cooked the way you want them, omelets al gusto . Would I stay here again. Si Si Si ! The rooms were clean, everyone was truly very friendly. Planning on returning in February.

Entertainment hint

Cab drivers will take you to the best places in town. Just tell them what your interested in Entertainment, Dinning, Night life. All speak very good English.

Overall good with lots of dining choices and good food. Hotel and pools were nice. Beach surf was fairly rough and not swimmable. Walks on the sand were nice though. Great value for the warm season.
