First, the good: the rooms are clean, and the continental breakfast was good. Now for the bad: Unlike some other reviewers, we didn't like the lunch or dinner food. We get better Mexican food back home in California. Our dive shop left messages for us that were never delivered. The dive shop told us they had had this experience before... More

This place is literally feet away from where up to 7 mega cruise ships dock every day. Which means that the roar of the engines is constant and there are cheesy LOUD announcers for "beach games" for cruisers buying day passes to this hotel continuing way into the night. The hotel service is perhaps the worst I've experienced. Although our... More

Stayed April 6-12. Spotless resort, super clean restaurant, excellent service. Especially Mario at the pool bar. Staff gave excellent service. But the true selling point for us was the food. In our opinion it was the best we have had a resort in cozumel. We got to try Mexican dishes we have never seen before each prepared with care and... More

We normally go to El Cid for the day when we are in Cozumel with our ship, and we love it: the personnel is very friendly, the place is well kept, the food is nice. We normally buy the USD11.00 package which give you access to the beach, free wi-fi (even though it is not the fastest of the wi-fi's)... More

El Cid is not the most fancy resort, but well kept and clean. Rooms are pleasant and clean. The food for an all inclusive was great. Different buffets everyday and a full menu to choose from. Drinks were also very good. But the best thing about El Cid was the service, the restaurant and bar staff were awesome. Cristano the... More

We had booked a "Double Deluxe Room" - we didn't realize that meant you get a microwave, sink and coffee maker. These we did not need as we paid for "All Inclusive". What puzzled me was the fact that along with this tiny little kitchen came a dining room table for six. What was even more puzzling was the bed... More

always thought that people who wrote bad reviews were a bunch of winers, until I went to this resort. The only thing keeping us from leaving this place was that it was very clean. Food was fair at best and almost no entertainment. Accessibility to ocean swimming was difficult and dangerous! It was slippery and uneven. We are fit people... More

Hotel management and staff make every effort to please, food is good, rooms are good. Bath linens/towels and face cloths are sometimes a problem - not enough. Internet connection is slow and unreliable. Hotel has a great pier for dive boats to pick up and drop off divers. This is our hotel of choice for dive trips in Cozumel.

The location was beautiful and the activities were so much fun. Gustavo and Casper were very fun and entertaining guys which enhanced our trip experience and made it harder to leave. These guys were funny and made sure everyone enjoying the beach was having a good time.
