First of all double check you are booking the All Inclusive. You have a choice. Then there are different levels of All Inclusive. Some areas of the pool you jave to pay for food and it isnt part of the All Inclusive. We had to pay extra for wifi, per device!! All Inclusive should be All Inclusive and not nickle and dime you. The staff was nice. The property had a water leak that was right outside our door and was never fixed. There was aggressive annoying peddling at the chair on the beach. It got so annoying we moved. The food was too repetitive all tastwd the same. I will not stay at an ElCid again.

Very nice everyone pleasing with smiles everywhere

Tub drain didnt work. Shower also broken. Bathing horrible experience.

The service was excellent and staff were very humble and respectful, I will definitely go back.

Everything was wonderful when we were moved to a room with a king bed . The hotel is begging for an update .

Very nice family friendly hotel with great food and service.

All excellent except the food quality and the price compared to the area dining out prices in the area

This was our 2nd visit and our room was located in a place that was not a good view. We were told every day that we would be moved and we never were. Very disappointing! Lots of children running around in buffet restaurant, creates danger and chaos. Parents don’t watch them and their are no rules for them. That almost knock people down. Like that chairs around pool are being monitored! This is great! Thank you!!

I would say for the money there are better places to stay, I wanted to get a box lunches and a breakfast made to go fishing in the am and they made it a very difficult experience, and they would they wouldn't freeze my fish afterwards. There is one person that is absolutely amazing that works there, Juan Martinez goes way above and beyond his job to make sure that you get the best experience on your vacation.

It was a great experience overall. The staff was fantastic and always so helpful. I will definitely visit this hotel again next year.

From check in to check out Excelente experiance ! Great location !

All inclusive is misleading. Noisy. Waiting on elevators is annoying and i am not taking the stairs 12 stories up.

The hotel is very nice the personal needs to be a litle more polite, the beds matres litle hard the food is very good the server was a very nice and help ful it was a good experience thanks hotel cid

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!!

The Hotel was centrally located near beaches and activities, the room had an ocean view, the food was not great but the room was clean and we were happy during our stay

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.
