Great Bang for the Buck

Would recommend Wed, Oct 20, 2010
Overall a great trip! The staff were all extremely friendly and the room was great. The food started off excellent, but unfortunately became far less desirable towards the end of our stay. That being said, we came home with great memories and had a great time the entire stay.

Much Needed Relaxation

Would recommend Thu, Jul 1, 2010
I had not had a vacation in several years and this break was much needed. Time seemed to slow down for me. As soon as we got to the hotel we were offered a cool, refreshing drink. Not sure what it was called, but it tasted great on the hot day. We asked for a king bed room since it was just the two of us and were quickly upgraded to the tower. We had the pleasure of enjoying a beautiful sunset from the balcony our first night. All-Inclusive (AI) is the way to go!!!!!! The staff goes out of their way to serve you. Just ask and they will get it for you. With the AI, we had a great choice of places to eat. We took advantage of the Argentinian Grill and Italian (Alcazar) restaurants at night and Al Cascada for breakfast and lunch. If we need to get something quick at lunch, we just went to the buffet at the pool. It is a 3-4 star hotel so expect that in the rooms. One morning we did not have any hot water first thing but it eventually returned. Though they say your tip is included in the AI package, tip anyways. The servers appreciate it and will take care of you. I even tipped housekeeping and would come back to the room with swan shaped towels and sometimes a candy bar. My only complaint would have to be the vendors on the beach that seemed to be everywhere and a little annoying.

Attractions

Take the Blue Agave tour and the Mazatlan City tour. Talk to Pronatours, they are great!!!!

The Greatest, Best value, and Staff

Would recommend Thu, Apr 29, 2010
I highly recommend this hotel to anyone considering a vacation in Mazatlan. The all inclusive plan is the way to go, with all the first class local and international restaurants, theater shows and buffets. I have never been treated so well from arriving at the resort, to pronatours adventure tours,to Check out. All the staff at the El Cid Castilla Beach Resort are extremely professional, polite, and knowledgeable. The sincerely close and happy relationship between the staff shows through and makes you feel like your in a family environment.

Dining

The dinning at the El Cid Resorts is first class. the Castlla Beach Hotel is just a few blocks from the gold zone shopping area. The hotel shops offer competitive shopping to the gold zone or old Maxatlan. Walking on the street looking around at street corners, numerous time I was asked if I need directions by people passing by.

El Cid

Would recommend Wed, Apr 28, 2010
The El Cid is in a great part of Mazatlan. The hotel staff and bartenders were very friendly and always ready to serve you with whatever you needed.

Nightlife hint

Go right down the street to Gus Gus for great 80's music and great service and inexpensive drinks.

El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel

Would recommend Sun, Apr 25, 2010
We have vacationed in Mexico 22 times, however it was our first time in Mazatlan. Over time, we realized that all inclusive is the only way for us. Therefore, our only choices was El Cid or the Riu Emerald Bay. So glad we chose El Cid Castilla. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We took 2 great tours: the City Tour, which included the cliff divers, and the Copala Tour, which showed us 3 real Mexican villages.

Entertainment hint

By all means, see the cliff divers.

MADE FOR A SUN WORSHIPPER

Would recommend Thu, Apr 22, 2010
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.
