We had 2 pool view rooms across the hall from each other (both had double beds although we had requested one with a king) after 2 nights we switched to another room with a king bed. The doubles are small and hard for 2 adults to sleep in together. The pool view rooms are nice and have a partial ocean view, they were basic but always cleaned well. We loved the pools and the fact that they are open until 9:00 p.m. However, all pool bars close down at 6:00 p.m. so the only place to get a drink is from the lobby bar. It would be nice it they stayed open later. The beach is narrow but nice and the ocean is fun to swim in. We liked the location of the El Cid. We did feel that the food left something to be desired. We could always find something to eat but we never had a great meal there, just edible. The drinks however were great!! We had a fun family vacation and would go back if we got a good deal! They could improve by offering free wi-fi at least in the lobby area, mini bar in the room would be nice and a 24 hour food/beverage would also be nice, and improve the food quality.
