We went to El Cid for our honeymoon. It was an experience of a lifetime. The service can really make the resort. In this case, the service from Robert, the bartender at the infinity pool area bar, made our experience. If you go, I recommend going to his bar your first night. It's a quieter section of the resort, and... More

We stayed at the Marina El Cid July 12 - 17, 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. We upgraded to building 23 to have our two rooms next to eachother and we were oceanfront and overlooking the new pool. It was perfect especially when we're always running back to the room for something for the children ages 17, 13 and 11... More

Great place for families, its a smaller property (which is good) and there are a lot of great activities to keep you busy. Rather than repeat all the details of the other reviews, I wanted to highlight the good and not so good as I saw my stay at El Cid. Good: - love the free watercraft activities- (paddle board,...

Pre Vacation- email to upgrade room to 1 BR prior to leaving, well worth the cost, especially if you have kids. We have 3 kids, and put them in the main room with the Queen murphy, and a roll away bed. Bedroom was just a big as the main room. 1 BR has 2 bathrooms. Well worth the upgrade. Our... More

We travelled to Marina El Cid last Dec (2013). Myself and my daughter (age 7), and my good friend and her son (age 6). We originally booked a standard room through our TA, and then called the hotel and upgraded to a 1 bedroom platinum suite. It was awesome, so glad we upgraded (used the $300 coupon from a booklet...

This was my first time at El Cid and I will definitely return. I spent a week at El Cid and it was wonderful. The infinity pool had the best view. The service by Arturo, butler, was most excellent! Loved it!

El Cid is a great resort especially for the resort. The restaurants are great. I preferred the Italian restaurant to the others, but every place had good food. Best of all, the waiters will bring you another plate if you don't like what you order (some of the menu items are different, so you might be experimenting more than you... More

We are frequent visitors to this area and were very excited to stay at the Hotel Marina El Cid with the added Platinum Club service, especially after reading all the positive reviews online.

Our family loved the Marina El Cid!!! We could not have been happier with our experience! The first day was a little rough with the sales pitch but it was short and we were in our room quickly to unpack, grab our water shoes and suits, and hit the beach!
