Fodor's Review

Named after Spain's legendary medieval leader, Mazatlán's largest resort has four properties, three of which are together in the Zona Dorada. The most upscale are the all-inclusive La Castilla and El Moro. The Granada costs less because it's the oldest, has no beachfront, and operates on the European Plan (that is, no meals included). A free shuttle connects these to the upscale, all-inclusive Marina El Cid Hotel and Yacht Club, at the north end of town, overlooking the 100-slip marina. Staying at any El Cid property gets you access to the full-service spa and fitness center, the city's best golf school and course, tennis and racquetball courts, and the aquatics center. Among readers, the Marina seems to be the favorite of the properties for its friendly staff, superior upkeep, and serene mood.
