The docks and property were very well maintained. The pool and beach club were great. Heard some complaints about the shrug in the cove but we did not experience it. Entrance is narrow and they have to dreg constantly so you need to check when entering. I would return again, staff and help was great.

Our room was a one bedroom in building #5 (furthest away from lobby) and it was perfect for our vacation. The pool with the grotto was just outside our window and it could get noisy. We travel with a white noise machine so it never bothered us when sleeping in. Adeline was our housekeeper and she was truly a gift....

We have stayed at two El Cid resorts and have found them to be very nice with helpful staff. Our family does not drink alcohol, so we avoid the mandatory all-inclusive resorts. The food costs at the resort are quite reasonable, so it is nice that we can eat at the resort when we want to and also try the...

I stayed in this resort for a week. When you stay at one, you can visit all of their resorts (El Castilla, El Moro and Granada) in the area. I purchased a discounted rate for the all-inclusive plan, which I really enjoyed. The food at this resort is relatively inexpensive but I must admit that it was really nice to...

The rooms were very nice and the staff very friendly and helpful.Easy access to all the surrounding areas. The other resorts of El Cid were free to get to with the shuttle service. The pool activities were full and well managed by Dante the activity director.

I can rate this resort as excellent. The staff were helpful whenever asked. Especially Hector on the front desk. The grounds are clean and well maintained. Club car was available with just a phone call to take us to our building. Happy hour allowed us to see all the pool/beach area and enjoy inexpensive drinks. The point is a spot...

First off I will say I don't understand how there can be a really bad review of this resort. It's unlikely that everything will be perfect (certainly not the way my life goes) and it's unlikely that everything will go wrong unless you are just having a lot of bad luck that week! Everyone's entitled to their opinion and what...

“The sofa sleeper is extremely firm and very uncomfortable for adult family members. We were "upgraded" from a 1 bedroom at ElCid El Moro Beach to "an equivalent 1 bedroom" unit at El Cid Marina Beach hotel. Although the Marina Beach hotel is very nice, the rooms are not equivalent. The 1 bedroom unit at El Moro Beach has two double beds that are much better for adults as well as 2 full bathrooms. The Marina Beach 1 bedroom had a king size bed and only 1 bathroom. The 1 bedroom unit at El Moro Beach that we had originally booked would have worked out much better for 4 adults than the 1 bedroom unit at Marina Beach. Although the representative assured us that the rooms were equivalent at the resorts, be aware that they are very different. Marina Beach would be fine with small children, but not adults unless you prefer privacy over bed comfort. We did have a lot of little mites crawling around the room and on the kitchen table, but this may be normal for the area.”

“Rooms nearer to 332 - 342 etc are quieter as they minimize traffic noise by being being the old Faro resort. Nearer to the lobby can be a bit noisy at times but the resort is always planing trees to minimize this going forward.”
