We came to Cozumel for the World Triathlon Championships. Team hotel was booked so we stayed here. Like the location on the water better. Nice beach area (two actually) and swimming/snorkeling were great. WARNING: on several different occasions we saw hotel staff walk through beach area and take sunglasses that were sitting on chairs with towels and no people. This... More

Unfortunately we booked through RCI Travel, and were mislead on what to expect. We were told we would have an outstanding view and a fabulous room, what we got was a basic hotel room, no fridge, no coffee maker and a big tree in front of our 4th floor room. When we arrived, we asked for a cadillac margarita, and... More

We enjoyed our 6 days at El Cid. Our room was in "the tower." Tower rooms are three self-contained rooms that share a common area with fridge, stove, etc. Good for a family or group vacation. We didn't do the "all-inclusive" offer (three meals, free snorkel rentals, etc.) and probably wouldn't do it since we enjoy getting away and doing... More

A nice clean resort with a good pool, restaurant, activities. A great place to stay if you like to scuba dive. It's a little too far from the city square and the boat to Playa del Carmen, though.

We really enjoyed our stay at the El Cid La Ceiba Hotel last week (Sept 2016). They were friendly and helpful and the place was very clean. It is right on the beach and there is a dock for scuba diving boats to pick you up in the morning.
