My husband and I spent a week at El Cid La Ceiba the week of May 17- 24 2008. First, they pick you up from the airport, which was wonderful. A woman from El Cid called before we left and told us to look for a man named Charlie, and he would be wearing an El Cid shirt. This was... More

We enjoyed our stay at the El Cid La Ceiba very much. We had the all-inclusive plan and loved the relaxed atmosphere. The staff is very helpful and so pleasant! We enjoyed coming to each meal and being greeted by so many happy faces...we really felt at home by the end of the week! The rooms are very clean and... More

My husband and I used a vacation timeshare plan to book this trip back in November 2007. We went with our two young sons, ages 1 and 3. We booked for the studio room which we usually do when we travel as the size of a room doesn't really matter to us since we're usually out and about anyway. We... More

This was my first trip to Cozumel, and definitely not the last. A big part of my great experience would have to be El Cid La Ceiba. I'm usually into loud and crowded vacations, due to the fact that I love to be around people. This vacation was exclusively for my boyfriend and I. Cozumel AND La Ceiba were both... More

Took my nephew for his graduation. He is a diver. Jorge, who is manager of reservations worked with me to get the best rates for the room I needed -- which was closest to the dive shop and also got me a deal on the three day dive package. At dinner he came by our table to make sure we... More

STAY AWAY!! This is a time share and in my personal opinion a scam. Do not give out your credit card numbers, do not sign anything. It is not as it appears. We will NEVER do business with this organization again!!

El Cid is not your normal mexican megaresort, but it had everything the megaresorts have. We purchased the all inclusive and we loved it - the food and drinks were excellent. The beach isn't really a beach, it's sand on concrete and has steps down to the ocean, but it was still nice. I got my hair partially braided for... More
