as pleased with the central location of The hotel. After looking at some out in emerald bay I'm very pleased we chose el cid, which is more centrally located. Be sure to get a room facing the ocean. The food in the Mexican restaurant was pretty good. The Argentinian was decent. Sushi really wasn't bad. The pool side snack bar was good. The buffet was pretty iffy but if you're going to Mexico for the good....well....don't. Be sure to make dinner reservations early each day or you'll be stuck in The buffet. The hotel had dome construction while we were there near the pool/ beach area. Really wasnt that big of a deal. It's important to note that not all el cid hotels are equal. The moro liked ok but the granada one was pretty dumpy from what we saw. No view, small pool, etc. castila beach was the best of The el cid. I'd go back!
