El Cid certainly knows a thing or two about real estate: This resort overlooks Mazatlán's picturesque marina from its seat in the city's Golden Zone (Zona Dorada). Meanwhile, guests staying in one of El Cid's 204 standard, junior and one-bedroom suites sit within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean's shoreline. Standard suites feature traditional Mexican terra-cotta tile floors and Mediterranean-inspired decor, as well as satellite TVs and wireless Internet access, while larger accommodations also boast a balcony or patio. And though all rooms are appointed with kitchenettes, recent visitors highly recommend the all-inclusive dining plan that covers all meals at the on-site La Marina restaurant and a myriad of dining venues at the three other neighboring El Cid properties. When you're not eating or sleeping, lounge at one of El Cid's two pools (or El Cid's private sands) or partake in the hotel's abundant activities: You can play a round of golf, practice your tennis swing or relax with a massage at the El Cid Golf & Country Club. And if you're itching to get off the property grounds, the hotel can also arrange boat rides, fishing trips, jet skiing and a wealth of other water sports.
