Stayed for 4 nights in April for my daughters 18th birthday. Majority of guests were either taking part in a cycle race or elderly Germans - the hotel was very quiet in the day & plenty of space around the pool. Hotel staff were all friendly and helpful. Room (103) had amazing sea views and of the local sailing club.... More

I reviewed the El Cid last year and gave it 4 stars. I have no reason to change my mnd....food very good, staff in restaurant are superb. Cleaning staff very good. However the old girl with the downturn mouth on reservations does not appreciate loyal customers. Last year I requested by email a top floor room (this is an old... More

We were booked to stay one night at this hotel as part of a Eurobike tour around the island of Mallorca. When we arrived we were shocked to be led to a row of rooms behind the tower. The room was dark and faced the side of the tower. We thought these were staff rooms. When we voiced our displeasure... More

Spent 5 nights here as an extra break with my mum who is 78. The staff were all very helpful especially when we needed a doctor and a trip to the hospital for my mum. Fortunately she was only there for a few hours and on our return the staff could not do enough to make sure we were ok.... More

The El Cid is in a great location on the seafront. The room was lovely - very clean, comfortable bed, big balcony overlooking the beach. I stayed half-board. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious - buffets with a great selection available, very good food. The staff were very helpful. Bus stop close by to get a bus to Palma City which... More

The hotel is situated in Can Pastilla area which is located at the beginning of Palma beach, and very near to the airport (so close that in the back corridor windows you can see the landing strip-airport!) about 5 minutes car ride. There´s a lovely promenade along the beach reaching from Palma beach to the Arenal. The hotel surroundings are... More

Great hotel, been going now for about 5 years on the trop in June, fantastic if you want a few days away with no small children around. Location is perfect less than 10 meters from the sea and 5 mins drive in a taxi from the airport (€10), varied food each night. Great location for flat walking. Cycle lanes can... More

We stayed at El Cid for a week at the end of July 2013. The hotel is in a great location. We were given a room at the 6th floor, with a wonderful sea view. The hotel is in a quiet area, near the beach. Most of the guests are seniors, but that was not a problem, as we stayed... More

I stayed for 10 days on full board in June 2013 and really enjoyed every minute. Sometimes you get doubts when reading some reviews but I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel.
