We chose El Cid because it was reasonably priced, close to town, and our dive company could pick us up at the dock in front. We booked with Booking.com, and I made an error in our numbers, so when we showed up they had to adjust the room assignment to accommodate our friend traveling with us. The front desk staff was very gracious, showing us both rooms they thought might work. The higher room had a great view, but not really enough room for us, so they put us in a two room suite on the ground floor with two small walk out balconies. Lots of room! and although we were right next to the wood burning pizza oven ( a plus when ordering pizza), we truly enjoyed the room. Food was quite good, service was pleasant and friendly, and the house sparkling wine was quite good too! The outstanding dive company Buena Ventura, picked us right off the dock in front - so wonderful, and of course amazing diving.
We will definitely return when we plan a trip to Cozumel.
