After staying at the palms for three nights our second part of our vacation was a pueblo bonito. I was very impressed by the cleanliness of this place compared to the palms. Everything was good, the food , the pool and the beach. The only thing that I didn't like was the time share presenters. They should tell us before hand that after our first presentation that they are going to set us up with a second presenter. If I said I'm not interested in the timeshare why would I say yes to the second presenter. This guy was rude just because we didn't wang to join their pueblo amigo passport. Overall it was a nice hotel.
My husband and I were in desperate need of a relaxing, poolside vacation with no worries and El Cid was everything we wanted that we didn't even know we wanted. The minute we dropped our bags, we roamed around to see what was available and Martin at the Lobby Bar kept the ice cold Pacifcos coming. We did the all-inclusive, so we spent a little time finding the ala carte dinner restaurants and booking our reservations for the week. Not all of the restaurants operate daily so we were happy we did this early on. If buffet is more your style, that's offered for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the dinner themes change nightly and include a show.
This resort is DEFINITELY family friendly, and there were a lot of children around. The pools are both adult and child friendly- there are waterslides, rocks to jump off, lifeguards, and swim up bars for the adults. We spent a lot of time reading by the pool and the staff (especially Carlos!) were super friendly and attentive and treated us like old friends. The activities staff were very involved, with poolside activities going from about 10-4 and included things like bingo, zumba, water aerobics, and my favorite- the Crazy Game, which one day involved a pool full of water balloons. There are also a couple of quieter pools if that is more your scene but you have to work a little harder to find them.
The bottom line is, if you want to relax and have fun, there is something for everyone here.
We were supposed to be in Cabo this week but decided to check out Mazatlan after the hurricane. We were very happy we did. The staff at the Emerald Bay were very accommodating when we asked to be moved to an upper floor the second night. The bartenders at the pool remembered our room numbers and special drinks when ordering drinks from the day before. We had no trouble getting our tickets to sign for food or drinks. We did not choose to do the all inclusive. There are so many places to eat on the beach and in town. The pulmoni drivers would drop us off at a restaurant and would come back in about 2 hours to drive us somewhere else. The service was spectacular everywhere. We spent a couple days at the downtown hotel on the beach. We took showers in the gym and left our bags at the concierge so we could walk around downtown. Both hotels were super clean and the staff were wonderful. Can't wait to go back. So many things to do.

We stay at EL MORRO hotel from 1st - 9th March. The hotel is not that great, the rooms are an older version of Mexico, but clean and the hotel personal are very friendly and pleasant, especially Jose from the front desk and the activity people Hans, Angelika and Ruben. The restaurant are good, especially La Concha and the shows from La Pergola are really nice to watch. They play every night something different, my daughter( 21 months) really enjoyed the Disney show.
If you don't have to many expectations from the hotel and you go to have fun you really enjoy staying at El Morro. If I have to go again to Mazatlán I will definitely choose this hotel.
Thanks for the great time EL MORRO!
Wonderful & attentive staff, good beds & clean rooms, and reasonable rate for ocean-view room with hot breakfast. Noise was a concern as noted by other travellers, but we didn't have a problem (...a little toleration & a room on the 8th floor) Centrally located for easy walking in the Historic Zone, close to Archeological Museum, the market, several plazas & the Immaculate Conception Cathedral. Inexpensive pulmonias took us everywhere else. We stayed 10 days in late March/early April, and will definitely return!
