We (my mother, best friend and I) gave my twin niece and nephew this trip as a gift. This was a once in a lifetime deal so we wanted to make it special. We booked our trip after researching dozens of resorts and decided on Hotel Marina El Cid. We didn't have the money to upgrade to the platinum guest...

This was our first trip to Mexico. The resort is clean and relaxing. The staff felt like old high school friends. Far away from the crowds of Cancun, this side of Mexico is beautiful and quiet; perfect for a couples getaway.

Went to the El Cid and stayed in a one bedroom timeshare unit through our RCI timeshare. Paid the all inclusive fee for my hubby and myself. We really liked this spot. The food was great, the a la cartes were very good and the weather was perfect. The liquor was good quality, not cheap stuff. Our unit was awesome,...

El Cid itself is a lovely resort. Our room in the new area, behind an infinity pool, was gorgeous. The grounds were well kept. We loved evenings at the lobby bar where we tasted great cocktails, expertly served. BUT we chose the carribean for the turquoise waters and white sand beaches!! Warning: check about the horrible seaweed problem before you...

We stayed at El Cid the first week of August and it was the best vacation that we have had since traveling with kids. Getting to the resort was really easy. The El Cid staff were easy to find right outside of the airport, and it was only about a 20-minute drive from the Cancun airport. Check-in was very easy...

The hotel and it's grounds are very nice. The pools were a lot of fun, esp for the kids. They loved jumping off the rocks in the large pool. Drinks are great and not watered down. We upgraded to platinum service with a butler, however we did not receive any of the welcome perks like fruit and wine or chocolate...
