We spent 10 days in June at La Ceiba and had a great time. We were on the 7th floor and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We did not do the AI since we love to go to different restaurants for dinner. We went to the Mega to stock up on breakfast and lunch food, as well as liquor and beer.
The dive shop is the best, thanks to Juan Carlos and Luis. We went diving just about every day and saw so much....that's why we love Coz. Being able to get up in the morning and walk right to the dock to get on the boat is amazing and so convenient. Looking forward to going back.

Very nice hotel, attentive staff, friendly and polite. We stayed at a timeshare exchange and found everything in good order. Enjoyed watching the cruise ships arrive and depart while I stayed for one week and enjoyed my mango margaritas! My special thanks to Bibiana at the reception desk who tried to get us an upgrade to an upper floor. It did not work but she certainly tried. We rented a car for three days and enjoyed the freedom of exploring the different beaches and snorkeling areas. Next time I'll sign up for the Temazcal experience!

We stayed July 3-10th. Once we arrived they had a drink for us waiting . I will say I expected our room to have a king size bed and a bigger size room . They were overly accommodating . The concierge had told us to check out a different room but we ended up staying in the room we were already in which is 2316. The room was cleaned two times a day - super nice employees too.
The air conditioning was awesome . We liked this room due to just going down a few stairs to the beach verses the little elevator on the high rise side. Our room was located on the three story building verses the newer one with over 10 floors .
We personally loved our side better due to view and easy access to beach .
The coffee was amazing and oatmeal which I had every morning . He had buffet that he loved too . We didn't do the all inclusive since we wanted to venture out to other restaurants.
The restaurant at El Cid is great too!!! The service was wonderful and We will stay there again when we go back . Other then hotel i would suggest going to punta sur light house and beach . You can rent a jeep outside hotel . Also while your out that way south of island go to coconuts !
Great food and atmosphere :).
We dined at a romantic restaurant called buccanos bar/grill . You can only dine there Friday/Saturday night reservations only.
The staff at el cid was helpful in every way , thank you !!

Specatular views, great snorkeling and diving. The wait staff are at beck and call. The maids did an excellent job on the rooms. Watched the most amazing sunset in my life here. Would NOT recommend making purchases at the convenience store attached to the hotel. Go across the street so you aren't ripped off.

I stayed for only a few days at El Cid, but had nothing but great experiences there. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well as bilingual. The entire hotel was very clean and taken care of. My room was refreshed very well - the staff even left cute towel creations when I needed new ones! There are taxis that wait right outside the lobby, so if you need to quickly get to the center of town it's very easy.

The pool and hot tub are nice, and the little beach area was full of chairs, shade, and hammocks! The sand doesn't go to the ocean, so it's not a true beach, but there are stairs leading to the ocean so you can swim. There's also a dock with lights that look beautiful at night.

I felt very safe traveling alone there - there are safes in each room and a key is provided.

Highly recommended!
