Good trip

The pool area and beach access were great! The food and room were so-so. But for the price we paid it was appropriate. The waiters around the pool were very attentive as well. Lots of peddlers on the beach, so pool is a better route. Get up early, put your towels down for a good spot and you are all set. La Cascada for bfast & lunch was the best. The sushi place for dinner was our fav, just be sure to make reservations ahead of time. The spa had good values and my husband loved the golf course. Be sure to enjoy the beautiful sunset every night!

Great value, loocation and beaches

The hotel was in a great location where you could walk or take short taxi rides to many fun bars/restaurants with great entertainers. The beach was fantastic altough lots of people trying to sell you things. Never pay the price they offer, bargaining is a must. The hotel offered some free water sport activites such as boogie boards which I would recommend trying as it is very thrilling when you catch a wave at the right time. The all inclusive restaurants at the hotel were very good just make sure to reserve a few days in advance to get the time you would like. All in all a great resort for the money we spent and I would go back to Mazatlan again.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

About a 5 minute drive/20 minute walk from the hotel there is a bar called George's on Monday night they have great entertainment. At the restaurant above George's on Saturday nights they have a great performer also. Definetly worth going to see!!

Family trip

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.

Awesome place to stay

This is the second time we stayed at el CID Castilla and uoon checking in we were upgraded to an ocean view room with an upgrade to our all inclusive to elite. The staff remembered us and were glad to see us come back. Having the sane staff there was a great thing to see, especially Adrian serving us down at the pool and Scorroco making omelettes for us every morning. The grounds were always clean along with the rooms and the pools. The one thing that we always find great about this place is the food is good and you can always find something to eat, and if you do get tired of the 5 or 6 alacartes and the buffet, the all inclusive charge is so cheap you don't feel guilty going out to eat.

!!!!!!!!!

Check in and check out were flawless. Staff super friendly ! Room was very clean, and maid service exceptional. Only thing I didn't like about the room was the TV, (very old). Food, (all inclusive plan) in the hotel was good. Really liked the breakfast buffet. Have a omellet custom made by "Sacoro". She is the best ! Would I stay here again ? YES ! This is the 20th year that I've stayed at the El Cid. Always the best. ! Looking forward to another 20 years.

Awesome value, super clean, friendly

The staff at El Cid Castillo Beach House were amazing. They couldn't do enough for us, The whole place is extremely clean and well maintained. Lots to eat, but they could use a couple more A La Carte Restaurants. After 2 weeks, the food choice gets a little boring, but then, we didn't go there to eat! Would definately go back.

EL CID MAZATLAN

The hotel was excelent in every way. They allowed us to use the V.I.P. check-in and also all the services of the Elite club lounge which was totally unexpected given the incredibly inexpensive price that was given to us on the all-inclusive package. The service was unbelievable as the staff was so friendly and accomodating.
