We just recently completed our 5th trip to the El Cid La Ceiba in Cozumel and our 17th trip overall to Cozumel. The La Ceiba keeps getting better and we were happy with our first trip there 3 years ago. The La Ceiba has improved the landscaping, added Snuba facilities right on the property, added a beach barbeque with live music, and the sales department now provides both an orientation meeting over morning coffee and an early evening cocktail party. This little gem of a resort never rests on its laurels and is always looking for ways to improve the value of your visit. The General Manager, Salvador Sanchez Meza, leads a wonderful staff who are the most friendly and professional people we have ever encountered on our many travels The resort's restaurant, La Chopa, is one of Cozumel's finest and the wait staff, directed by managers Chrisanto and Jorge, give you a personal and professional level of service that is truly outstanding. We highly recommend that you try the Private Romantic Dinner for Two that is served on the pier overlooking the sea -- the food, service, and setting are wonderful and well worth the price. FRESH is the key word at La Chopa -- fresh fruits, vegetables, pastries, seafood, and sea air!! We love the family atmosphere at the La Ceiba and the resort is big enough to provide all of the desired services, but small enough that everybody knows you and treats you special.The dive, snorkeling, and deep sea fishing boats pick you up right at the La Ceiba pier -- just feet from the door of your hotel room. There are lots of events provided right on the property and the Events Director, Cain, always has things to do for the kids as well as offering things like cooking classes, Spanish classes, stretching classes, bingo, horseshoes, and water volleyball for the adults.. The Concierge department has booked and recommended excursions for us and their advice and service has always been great. We are tourists and customers, but we are always treated like family when we return to the La Ceiba. This is a great value and Cozumel is the SAFEST tourist destination in the Americas. Mexico takes a great deal of national pride in its tourist and hospitality industry and nowhere is that pride better demonstrated than at the El Cid La Ceiba in Cozumel. We are looking very much forward to our next visit to the La Ceiba.
