My family met in Cozumel for a family vacation. The hotel was great! We had a great room, the beach area was relaxing, the water was clear, and the restaurant was delicious. We loved being able to snorkel right in front of our hotel. The reason I give it a 3 is because we had a lot of difficulties. The...

My husband and I chose El CID La Ceiba for our honeymoon. Our reception was pretty nice; we were greeted by David who welcomed us to the small resort. We checked in and gave our credit card number for incidental charges. The studio room was fairly clean and located next to the small beach (Cozumel's real beaches are about 3...

This is an RCI property and we are RCI owners, so my perspective comes from being an RCI owner. That being said, I was not overly impressed. We had a one bedroom suite, which we were told would sleep four - and it would, but not when two of them are teenage brother and sister. Plus, there is only one...

This was our first time at an "all inclusive" resort. In my opinion, "all inclusive" is the only way to go. I was impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the well maintained property. It is an older property but beautiful nonetheless. There is only one restaurant however. They do change the menu and also offer a "grill night"...

I had a great time. Wonderful service at desk, housekeeping. I have to give the hotel 4 stars because the waitstaff was terrible and I felt that the food was too pricey, we went elsewhere for the majority of our meals.
