My wife complained to Esther Zapata who upgraded...

I booked this hotel as a last minute place to stay on a spontaneous trip to Cozumel. The location is close to the ports where the cruise ships are located but far from the most beautiful beaches in Cozumel. The hotel is older but well maintained. We were in an ocean front room on the 2nd floor facing the Pool,...

A few weeks ago, I went on my annual week - long vacation with my family, and we stayed at the El Cid in Cozumel. Needless to say, we had a great experience! Here's why: -The hotel is BEAUTIFUL!

We were on Carnival Paradise. Normally I don't even get off the ship but on the recommendation of a crew member at Guest Relations we took a chance. El Cid is 4 blocks (to the left) from cruise port.

We wanted a quiet, peaceful but very nice hotel that was in the heart of Cozumel yet not in the noisy, crowded down town area. That is exactly what we found in El Cid.
