The Hotel El Cid is actually a number of hotels in a large complex in the Golden Zone tourist zone in Mazatlán, Sinaloa, Mexico.  The main El Cid complex is located in the northern part of the Golden Zone.  There is also an El Cid hotel located in the Marina farther north of the main complex which we discuss on another page on this website.  This webpage only discusses the hotels in the main complex.  The main El Cid hotel complex consists of 3 properties: El Cid Castilla Beach, El Cid El Moro, and the El Cid Granada Country Club.  

There is a small mall in the El Cid complex with a number of shops.  The hotel also hosts the world famous SEñOR FROG'S restaurant/nightclub!

The swimming pool in front of the ocean is probably the largest pool in Mazatlán and it literally goes around the buildings in the complex.  The pool has a swim up bar and a small water slide.  There are 2 large sections separated by a wing of the El Cid Castilla Beach hotel.  But don't worry, you can swim around the building to get to the other section!  Even though the pool is large, it can be very full if the hotel is full.

There is a row of palapas (grass sun shades) on the beach in front of the complex where you can get served drinks and food.  There are beach vendors from which you can rent boogie boards or kayaks, or go para-sailing.

The El Cid is mainly an all-inclusive now.  People that we know that have done the all-inclusive have been happy with it!

El Cid Castilla Beach

The Castilla Beach is a moderately large medium-height hotel right on the beach.  The rooms are basic and very clean.

El Cid El Moro

The El Moro is a more upscale tall tower right on the beach.  The rooms are faily luxurious and have a great view.

El Cid Granada Country Club

This property is located across the main road from the Castilla and Moro buildings.  It is located on a large property that has the golf course, tennis courts, and many single family houses in a gated community.  These rooms have balconies/patios and have a garden view.
