We have been going to El Cid Marina for over 10 years and love the location and setting. However, the units are starting to "age gracefully". We wish we had been in a newly remodelled unit and could have given El Cid Marina a better rating, especially as we are owners here. Our unit was 2 bedroom corner unit on... More

Beautiful location w/ awesome staff and great amenities. Poker nights, water volleyball, and the unofficial daily iguana feeding all help to make this place a unique place to stay. Just ask for Juli, Maritza, Jonathan, or Miguel when you're at the pool and look for Jaime at the poker table (they'll take good care of you).
