This hotel exceeded expectations. We just got back from a quick family trip and as soon as we arrived we felt at home. The service was amazing. Like most international resorts they offer you to view a presentation for additional perks and savings. I expected that and you can simply deny them although they will continue to ask if you have changed your mind. The food was amazing. If there is an area of improvement it would be to have more options of meals to select from. the menus at the resort were a little bit on the light side with options but nonetheless the food was great. The beach was still a bit brown from the seaweed but you can see the staff working out there everyday tying to keep it as clean as possible.
My family and I could not have asked for better service. We did not get to take advantage of the excursions as our trip was not that many days and the resort alone can take up 2-3 days to enjoy all of it.
The hotel set us up with a taxi service that took us to a Playa Del Carmen which is very nice and a great place to purchase your souvenirs for your friends and family back at home.
Once again, overall we loved staying here and we will definitely be back sooner than later. The main pool at El Cid was amazing and the events such as dance night parties, foam parties, movie night are just some of the events that made this a most memorable trip. Thank you El Cid and your staff.

Relaxation to the max

There are beach resorts and there are beach resorts but I recommend this lovely place for your relaxation. With the great meals and excellent service from staff you are guaranteed self love. The spa is a plus....can't explain much here so head for maximum satisfaction


WARNING! DO NOT BOOK THIS RESORT!!! We booked a family vacation here and paid for 3 rooms for our family. Because we wanted to have a little nicer room, we booked a room which BookIt claimed was an upgrade to the other 2 rooms we booked. Not true! It was called a “Luxury” room, but the luxury means the same room with upgraded “amenities” and some travel toiletries, and “Butler” service which turns out anyone can get anyway! This is not why I’m so upset however. Upon checking in, we were separated out to each check in with different desk attendants. One of the rooms was upgraded to a Presidential Suite-like room with a separate dining room seating 8, a kitchen and wet bar, a full living room with sectional couches, 2 bathrooms, a separated bedroom, wrap around balcony with a jacuzzi on it overlooking the ocean, and about 3 times the square footage and it wasn’t our room which are the ones who paid for all 3 rooms. The next day when bringing this to the attention of Sara Gutierrez (Club Platinum Manager) that it was unacceptable that one of us was upgraded when all of us weren’t offered the same, and especially when the room that costs the most wasn’t the one upgraded, we were told that it was a special deal that was granted by the desk attendant that checked that room in and that there was nothing they could do for us. In the end, after pressing her on the issue, I brought up the fact that we were confused why we had to pay $60 PER DEVICE for WiFi as we had never experienced an up charge for internet at ANY of the other MANY Mexican resorts we frequent, upon which she reluctantly comped us TWO access codes for the week...something which costs them NOTHING! The last thing that I’ll tell you about is a situation where my husband was stepping off into the infinity pool and the tiled bottom was so slick that he completely wiped out down the stairs and badly scraped his back resulting in a deep wound that he needed to go get treated for at the medical facility which costs us an additional $90 cash. All this because they don’t have as much as a single sign to let you know that you should take ultra caution stepping into the pool (picture included). WE WILL NOT BE BACK! You have 100’s of other much better choices in a 20 mile radius! Keep on scrolling!!
