The grounds are very clean. Decent options for dining with more coming. Good beach...a lot rocky; you'll need water shoes but once in the water it's good for swimming or snorkeling. Staff is friendly very attentive to your needs. Close to Puerto Morelos if you are looking to have an authentic meal or explore small shops.

The resort is beautiful and they are expanding it again. They are adding three more buildings, a third pool and an additional reception area. The quality of food and the service is excellent. It is an all inclusive resort. Every night they have entertainment in the form of shows. Examples are a fire show, a Mexican entertainment show, a British...

Really enjoyed this place. The food was AHHHHMAAZZING. The buffet is open all day and they work very hard to make it different every time so I never really got tired of going there. Each night they have a different theme at the buffet. I highly recommend the Mexican night. They decorate the area in a very festive way. The...

We had never visited Rivera Maya or Cancun before so this was a first. The employees were all very friendly and the resort was beautiful. We really enjoyed all of your restaurants and the buffet. We bought our membership as a gold member but were given points in Mazatlan to be Platinum for the 1st. year, unfortunately this wasn't in...

Excellent place to go during the spring break period and avoid all the college kids in Cancun. Hotel and staff was top notch. Food and drink was all very excellent, as well as things to do in the local area.

I've been coming to el Cid for years with my son. This trip my sister and a friend also joined us. Our rooms were in the expansion near the infinity pool, which is my favorite. The views were awesome. The rooms are large and beautiful. I thought the bedding was really comfortable, pillows and bed cover. I'm always so impressed...

I wasn't expecting much from booking this last minute vacation but I was pleasantly surprised. We upgraded upon arrival (at a high cost, but it was our anniversary) to the platinum club and upgraded our room to a huge suite. We travel a lot and this was probably the nicest room we've ever had. It was a 1 bed, 1.5...

We had been in Mexico at another resort before we came to El Cid to be with another family with kids ages 6-8, for several days. The positives are limited to the hardworking staff that served food at restaurants and cleaned the hotel rooms and bathrooms. These folks worked very hard and were always pleasant throughout our stay. The negatives...

This place is great! Resort staff are very friendly and give impeccable service! The resort size is great. Large enough you have plenty of space to roam around and things to see. Yet small enough that you don't have to walk forever to get from place to place. The food is outstanding! We took friends this last time who have...

“The older part of the resort is lacking a little, especially the studios but if you aren't planning to spend a ton of time in the room it works fine. Larger units are nicer. Ask for an ocean view.”

“All the rooms have ocean views. If you want to be where the action is ask for a building near the pool”
