El Cid El Moro Beach Hotel

Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Pacific Coast, Mexico

Coupled with its neighboring sister property (El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel), El Cid El Moro Beach Hotel is one of the largest, most full-featured beachfront resorts in Mazatlan. With a wide, soft-sand beach, a huge freeform pool, two alfresco restaurants, and an on-site grocery store, guests have access to almost everything they need without ever venturing off-property. The 390 rooms are simple, but sharper than many in the region, and they feature kitchenettes, flat-screen satellite TVs, and private balconies (with optional sea views) are all provided. The lack of free Wi-Fi, a spa, and a gym, plus an overcrowded beach and sometimes loud vibe, are likely to turn off some guests. For a bit more money, the four-pearl Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay offers the same amenities and more sophisticated rooms.

El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel

Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Pacific Coast, Mexico

El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel is one of the most full-featured and family-friendly three-and-a-half-pearl resorts in Mazatlan. Each of the 500 rooms offers modern amenities including flat-screen satellite TVs, air-conditioning, and private balconies, some of which have sea views. The property features an extensive list of common amenities, including a wide beach, three restaurants with alfresco dining and room service, and one of Mazatlan’s largest pool complexes. However, the easily overcrowded beach and lack of free Wi-Fi, a spa, or a gym are surprising in a hotel of this class. El Cid Marina Beach Hotel offers a quieter, more elegant atmosphere with access to all of the same amenities for less money.

Hotel Riu Emerald Bay

Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Pacific Coast, Mexico

As Mazatlan’s largest resort, the 716-room Hotel Riu Emerald Bay has just about every feature an all-inclusive traveler would expect in a typical, slightly dated package. There are three large pools, a massive, a semi-private stretch of beach, numerous restaurants and bars, and a large spa. Rooms are typical of the Riu brand, ranging from simple and dated to more upmarket, with amenities like all-you-can-drink liquor racks and minibars, flat-screen TVs, and private balconies (with optional water views). Make no mistake: This is a party hotel and is built for people who like a higher-volume beach getaway, and there's nothing really within walking distance. For a bit more money, Pueblo Bonito Mazatlan has a quieter, more relaxed vibe and similar features.
