We have stayed at various all inclusive resorts in the past. All were twice as nice as this hotel in food and service offered along with hotel quality. We did not realize this hotel was a timeshare hotel and we would be treated as second class guests because we were not part of the vacation club. (I believe we paid... More

My husband and I wanted to spend a week at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico - with a budget in mind! After looking at Cosco Travel and reading Trip Advisor reviews, we booked this resort. When we arrived, we offered the opportunity to upgrade to a room in building 22. At the time, it was dark and we could not... More

The resort is very relaxing and the beach was nice. We mostly went to the infinity pool and the beach of course. Good... More

We just returned from a long weekend at El Cid and very much enjoyed the hotel. We have traveled many times to Mexico and stayed at AIs only twice, generally opting for smaller hotels and getting a car to explore on our own. This resort definitely was a positive experience and I would recommend to someone looking for an AI... More
