we own "points" at El Cid and go to Mazatlan once a year and have been for 30 years. The El Cid is on the best stretch of walking beach and you can walk either on the beach or on the street to countless other hotels, restaurants,bars. The El Cid is older but well maintained and has an excellent long time staff.
The newer places like the RIU and the Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay are 20 minutes north and have beaches , but you can't walk to anything else, you have to take a shuttle bus
The El Cid has the best pools in town. The rooms range from basic hotel rooms on low floors with pool views to ocean front large rooms, we recommend you go for some sort of ocean view room
They offer an all inclusive option for around $35 per person per day, but as there are so many other good places to eat we only recommend that for a day or two when you want to stay at the el cid and drink a lot
New this year is their Mexican Fiesta on Wednesday nights. The Playa Mazatlan forever had the best Fiesta in town, but they shut it down last year. El Cid has picked up some of the performers and now has the best fiesta show in town, we highly recommend it.
We also went with friends for the first time on the tequila factory tour - very well done and we recoomend it
Our friends went on the long standing "country tour" and said it was long and boring
