Family friendly

Multiple pools, dining and an excellent business center. Views of the Pacific Ocean from balcony were excellent. Location near the shopping district, and ATM banking accross the street. Hotel is close to many restaurants. About a half hour ride from the Mazatlan Airport.Bathroom was very large and room was spacious. Great value for the dollar. Staff spoke good english.

Very clean hotel. Staff is wonderful.

The El Cid Castilla was wonderful. It was very clean at all times. The staff was friendly and polite, but not overbearing. The pool area is fantastic and great for adults and kids alike. Excellent restaurants within walking distance, though riding in the pulmonia's is very inexpensive. The only downside are the timeshare sales vultures and the vendors/beggrs on the beach which is unfortunately federal property and so cannot be policed by the hotel staff.

some good some not so

We had a wonderfull 10 day all-inclusive stay in a ocean view room 3rd floor. The waiters and staff were all top notch. They did their jobs above expectations. The food was good and the variety was what made it great. The shops inside are very unique. The pools were warm but it was unseasonably cold & we were not in the ocean once. Foggy most days but we found ourselves on road trips & shopping or just enjoying a new restaurant in the area.

Relax, you are at the Castilla!

Arrived on Fri. just in time to eat at the La Cascada. We got to order off the menu for lunch. This is a 1st for us at an all inclusive. Overall the food at El Cid Castilla was the best we have had in Mexico. Room over looked the pool and was ocean view. Since we booked the trip on [...]we were granted the use of the Elite Club. There we could use their computers to check e-mails and help ourselves to cold drinks. Shopped right at the Castilla. Good prices and they even came down a little. Prices here better than down the street. This turned out to be a great choice for us and you will have fun walking on the endless beach with beautiful sunsets! ENJOY!p.s. remember to tell the Time Share Sharks, No Gracias!

MADE FOR A SUN WORSHIPPER

We were upgraded to an incredible suite which made our holiday even more wonderful than we expected. Entire property was spotless at all times of the day or night. Food in the restaurants was great - not so good in the buffet but still a good spot to grab a quick snack. The only thing missing was any type of music or entertainment on property after 9 P.M. There was a guitar trio on two nights - other than that absolutely nothing. I even had to ask them to turn on some music in the Lobby Bar where people congregate later on in the evening. A little disheartening for an older single gal who likes to rock. Wouldn't have fit in with the tours of young people they were hauling to the discos.

Beautiful walks on the beach

I came down a month ago to fish Lake Comedero & fell in love with a local girl. So, I came back to see her for a week. She has 2 wonderful daughters. They came to visit and swam to their hearts content, while me & mi amor got to know each other better poolside & at the poolbar, which is cool. On our 1st evening, one of the concierges, brought us complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries. We had romantic walks on the beach & wonderful food. All of the staff were friendly & helpful. They made us feel like royalty. Everything about this week has been more perfect than words can describe, from the accomodations to mi amor. I can't wait to come back.
