I've been coming to el Cid for years with my son. This trip my sister and a friend also joined us. Our rooms were in the expansion near the infinity pool, which is my favorite. The views were awesome. The rooms are large and beautiful. I thought the bedding was really comfortable, pillows and bed cover. I'm always so impressed...

I wasn't expecting much from booking this last minute vacation but I was pleasantly surprised. We upgraded upon arrival (at a high cost, but it was our anniversary) to the platinum club and upgraded our room to a huge suite. We travel a lot and this was probably the nicest room we've ever had. It was a 1 bed, 1.5...

We had been in Mexico at another resort before we came to El Cid to be with another family with kids ages 6-8, for several days. The positives are limited to the hardworking staff that served food at restaurants and cleaned the hotel rooms and bathrooms. These folks worked very hard and were always pleasant throughout our stay. The negatives...

This place is great! Resort staff are very friendly and give impeccable service! The resort size is great. Large enough you have plenty of space to roam around and things to see. Yet small enough that you don't have to walk forever to get from place to place. The food is outstanding! We took friends this last time who have...

We had a fantastic room that was unfortunately located directly next to new construction, nightly shows and bar. There was no rest, and lack of security to make sure that the pool was clear after closing and that people respected quiet hours. We were not able to sleep because every side of our room had noise from 7a.m start of...

The Hotel Marina El Cid Spa and Beach Resort was very nice and clean. Bathroom doors in the room left a gap so you are able to see in to the toilet area. The Beach was nice, however, once into the water it was very rocky.

We traveled with a big family and if it wasn't for each other we would not have enjoyed our time as much as we did. For 1st time vacationers this may be a great experience, but for those who have experienced quality service and stay elsewhere, this is a sub-par resort. For some context we traveled, mid March, right after...

We have just returned from our third trip to El Cid in Puerto Morales. Each trip to this resort has been a relaxing and enjoyable experience. There is so much to do in the Rivera Maya area that we have just barely scratched the surface with the 3 trips that we have made here. The fine dining options for dinner...

We had high expectations for this spring break at El Cid. We had booked Platinum Level of service that includes room upgrade, Platinum Club Access and Butler Service. At the end of the 1st day, we thought we had made a great choice since the facilities (rooms, beds, gym, and the pools were excellent) and the welcome service was great....
