... for dinner.
After dinner we went to the top of the Freeman Hotel for a drink and a view of the sunset and the Colonial district of the city. It is a wonderful place to see it all. The city is getting ready for their Carnival celebration with large paper mache statues of clowns and the like.
It was a fun trip and we got some good pictures, we hope you enjoy them.
... a number of these. And just to take things one step further, we were all sharing one big house, reality TV style. Either Lyle and Nadine's generous gift to their giant family, or a nefarious experiment in social behaviour and copious nacho consumption, depending on who you ask.

... part of flats or separate buildings. The stretch of beach has a few high-rise and more low-rise condos, some new, some old and showing wear. We passed two dead large, fish, which wasn't surprising, given that people were fishing in the surf, and two dead pelicans, which had no obvious explanation. We paused at the marina, then turned around in time for our 10:30am welcome breakfast.

Historical Traveler Reviews El Cid El Moro Beach Hotel Mazatlan
My family & I had a wonderful time. Everyone was very helpful, courteous & made us feel very welcome. Our room was clean and had a wonderful view of the deer island. The food was very good & clean beaches Lots of activities to enjoy. This was the best trip we have taken and for sure we are going back.
We stayed here from August 28 - August 31. We were moved to this hotel from the El Cid Granada as the Granda was closing for annual maintenance. Our room at the El Morro was smaller than the Granda, although more modern. Unlike the Granda's kitchen facilities, everything at the El Moro is locked away, so this required housekeeping to unlock for us. Our first night the drain hole flooded, flooding the bathroom, and the lastr night the hot water tap would not turn off. The staff responded quickly.
We stayed at El CId Moro Tower last fall. There were a total of six sun umbrella's between three pools. The beach furniture is plastic, cracked and dirty. During our week stay, the pool furniture was NEVER cleaned. The same pigeon crap was on the same pieces of furniture our entire stay. Local's are allowed to come and go as they please, usually diretly from the beach. We met several guest's that experienced theft issue's while at pool-side. Our room was not ready upon our arrival, meaning the air wasn't on, the frig wasn't plugged in, no towels in the restroom. They shove Time Shares down your throat. They stop you at the lobby, they ring your room. It just doesn't stop until you committ YOUR VACATION TIME to attend one of their presentation. They DON"T take NO for an answer. This is a mediocre resort.
My wife and I spent our honeymoon at the El Cid Resort on December 22-29, 2002. The problems from that trip were with AeroMexico, the airline that misplaced our luggage for two days. The El Cid Resort, however, was a great place to stay. There was some initial confusion about our time-share reservation, but that was ultimately resolved. We had a suite on the eleventh floor (if I remember correctly), which gave us a fantastic view of the city, the ocean, and the entire resort. The pools are lots of fun. (Make sure to experience the slides, no matter your age.) We really enjoyed the food at the restaurants and ordered room service many times. (It was quite a bargain.) There are several great restaurants within walking distance (an Italian place across the street, a seafood place a bit further down the street). We had an absolutely fabulous round of golf, with some expert advice from Mario, our caddy. We played tennis on the clay courts. We wandered on the beach. And we had the best horseback riding experience of our lives with Ginger's Bilingual Horses (which are a thirty minute cab ride away). The rooms were not particularly spectacular (the hard floors seemed particularly depressing), but the resort as a whole offered many options. We had a wonderful time together and would recommend El Cid for anyone traveling to Mazatlan.
Let me start with the bad... If you don't buy time-share they tend to treat you differently. Buy time-share and your good as gold!!! Victor in timeshare sales was all BS, so stay away from him. He is not a man of his word and Rocio (timeshare gift girl) was a bit rude also. But I do have to say that the facility is great. Great pools and so-so drinks, just ask for a double and you'll be fine. If you enjoy beer like me then you'll be A ok. My kids enjoyed the pools and slides tremendously. Food is good, but Tequila Tilly's right down the street is great. We got filet mignon at like 10 bucks and it was really good.
Been going here for 10 years and not stoping
My family and I have been coming to mazatlan and have stayed at El Cid El Moro for 10+ years and we even own a time share in the penthouse and whoever said that this hotel was terrible should be shut up!! We LOVE this hotel it has everything we need and want (3 pools, restaurant, beach front, Nice rooms, great staff) If you or someone you know wants to vacation in mazatlan i highly suggest this place!!
We went to Mazatlan February14-21. It was wonderful to get away from Ohio's cold weather. We loved being near the Pacific Ocean. We stayed at El Cid Morro Tower which we enjoyed very much. We had a very clean suite, great service, good food etc. We will be returning.
Great stay at El Moro Towers
We spent the week of January 12-through the 19th at the El Cid Resort.
We stayed at El Moro Towers with friends who have time-share.
Everything very nice there and they are very accomodating and helpful
and try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. They have nice
restaurants throughout their complex with lots of things to do.
The only thing was the weather. It was cloudy and overcast the first few days, rain, thunder and lightening. But then finally cleared off and weather was beautiful. This is the first time we encountered rain and cloudy weather. We've been going there since 1997. We always enjoy our time in Mazatlan and its a nice place to go and not all that costly. Great for Senior Citizens.
El Cid El Moro Towers is a fantastic place to stay! I can't think of anything that I would give a rating of less than excellent!!!! Class act here!!!!
Great resort like Heaven
El Cid Moro was wonderful. We had a great view because we were on the 9th floor facing the ocean. This resort you can get all-inclusive if you want but that's the only way to go. All you can eat and drink anytime. They have 5 restaurants, two bars, 4 huge pools, water slides, waterfalls surrounding the pools a theater show every night and a disco on the property. The room was very nice with a balcony. The staff is very helpful. We had a wonderful time and will go back again sometime.
