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.
Great view from the room
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.
I had read the reviews before going and ensured we tipped the maids and maintenance personnel so we always received good service. The view from the hotel room was great over the ocean and pools, but for my money I would return to the El Cid Granada.
I like the full kitchen (at the Grandad) as the ability to have breakfast and lunch in the room is great.
Our six year old loved the El Moro pool because of the water slide.
Keep looking - not a Gold Crown Resort
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.
We had a wonderful honeymoon at El Cid!!
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.
Great place / staff OK
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.
Our suite was awesome. Great kitchen and fridge to stock up on beer and some food. The beach area was nice also, although the people selling stuff bother you quite often, hey they have to make a living though, so it's permissable. I went at the end of March till begining of April, just missed "semana santa" kind of spring break for the locals and it seemed like it was getting packed when I left. El Cid Moro Tower is 4 stars, but not 5. If you make it, you will enjoy your time!!!
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.

The folks at the boatyard were all very friendly and helpful. The same as we’ve experienced everywhere here in Mexico. They hauled Winterhawk out of the water and placed us in the yard. Rick’s crew, which is either entirely or mostly his Mexican family members (he’s married to a local gal) went right to work. The ...
Mazatlan has a big expat community, mostly retired Americans and Canadians (known as snowbirds) and is also a busy port for cruise ships passing through so I was firmly back in tourist land but Maztlan still has plenty to discover off the beaten track.
My visit to Mazatlan finished up with a delicious seafood dinner at a restaurant on the beach courtesy of Ana. I had a great time staying with Ana, she has ...
... ate most of our breakfasts. We had also gone to the grocery store the second day we were there and got a few snacks to keep in our kitchen for Maya. She ended up enjoying a bowl of refried beans for most of her dinner meals. Her great-grandma Rosie is Mexican so we joked that she must be embracing her Mexican heritage :)
In addition to the refried beans and swimming in the pool, Maya also enjoyed riding the pulmonias - the open-air taxis ...
... 30 minutes of hell, over. I believe Ginger thinks we turned it off… bless her little pea pod brain. Daisy slept through the whole thing. Deafness has its advantages.
The hurricane season officially begins 10 days from now and we still need to go about a 100 south to our chosen hurricane hole in Puerto Vallarta. We’ll spend a few days renewing here in Maz land and then point theboat towards Paradise.
Keep those cards and letters coming!
... the shady sides of the streets made it more manageable. The streets are much cleaner than we experienced in Baja. Most of the homes are much better maintained. More sidewalks, and most of them are swept. A Canadian we met on the street directed us to Panama Panderia (Bakery). Jason grinned! Then we quickly found what became our favorite breakfast haunt, El Sunami just off Flores Street. Huevos Rancheros, omelets, muesli and nuts, yogurt, fruit plates all served with a ...
