Mazatlan beach all-inclusive resort for US$149 per night per couple

As many people are winding down their spring holidays, the prices for the rest of us are plummeting. There are some amazing deals out there for the months of April and May, especially in Mexico where some people have decided to go elsewhere this year.

At the El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel, which is 3.5 stars and right on the beach in the middle of the action, you can get a pool-view room on the all-inclusive plan for only US$149 per couple per night. That’s a bit less than half the normal price, which is already a decent deal because this is one of the better all-inclusives along the Pacific in Mexico.

A pool-view room at the El Cid Castilla Beach Hotel for US$149, all-inclusive, per couple

The details

This rate is available for selected dates in April and May through Expedia using their special 50% off sale right now. This was researched for a stay of 7 nights, but it appears to be valid even for shorter stays.

A real all-inclusive winner

The question that many people have when looking for all-inclusive resorts is whether the alcohol is included, because the cheapest places never include alcohol. Good news here because this one does, with unlimited house-brand alcohol in addition to the daily meals at the main restaurants and most beach activities.

This is a rather nice resort so just imagine how much it would cost you to pay for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for two people, plus 3 or 4 evening cocktails per person? That’s right, it could easily cost US$150 per day alone, so it’s like you are getting the room for free, plus the use of 8 pools and many non-motorized water sports.

If you are looking for a relaxing week where you indulge in Mexican cuisine, lounge around by the pool or on the beach, and have a few drinks by the pool both during the day and at night, this place is ideal and a fantastic bargain.

The premium rooms here are the ocean-views, and they are only US$161 per night for this same promotion, so it’s only $12 extra per day to have a romantic view of the Pacific for those amazing sunsets.

Mazatlan is a perfect choice right now

The trendy resorts in Los Cabos are charging double the prices of this place in Mazatlan right now, but the flight here is only a bit longer, and the area is more authentic as well. Finding a cheap flight from most of the western US or Canada is easy, and the weather is pretty much perfect until late summer when the rains start. With deals like this you’ll be wanting to stay for a month rather than just a week.
