We recently returned from our first visit to the El Cid, and we had such a great time. I was traveling alone with my 6 year old and 8 year old, and we were treated like family by the fantastic staff (another shout out to Eliezer, who rocks). We felt very safe and well-taken care of. Our room was sparkling clean and kept that way (somehow) by the hard-working maid (whom we tipped like crazy--two kids + beach = a lot of sand). The Mexican buffet on Friday night was quite honestly some of the best food I've ever eaten. And all of us at one point or another forgot to not use tap water to brush our teeth, and we didn't get sick. (We also had the ice cubes, the lettuce, the raw fruit, and all the other stuff everyone warns about, all without any ill-effect...) My only complaint, and this in minor in relation to how great everything else was, is that service at the pool or beach was pretty non-existent, at least for those of us who were all-inclusive. (It looked like the day trippers got pretty well take care of.) But that was a small thing for me--service at meals was fantastic. The very best part of the resort for us was the snorkeling right out front--we had so much fun there! We're returning to Cozumel later this year (with the husband, hurrah) and we will definitely be staying at El Cid.
