The butlers are not very good on follow up,asked for information on golf never got back to us, Joaquin promised my Daughter he would help her celebrate her birthday, even asked for a day,...

The El Cid resort was beautiful with friendly attentive staff. Even though construction is happening, there was no interference with our restful vacation. However our room had a door adjoining that allowed too much sound transfer. That was at times a challenge to tolerate.

I can't telling you enough how great this place was, the only negative thing I have to say is that the beach is rocky so bring some good water shoes besides that the room was beautiful, the entire resort was spotless the week we were there the food was amazing.

We have stayed here three times. The resort is a great value for the experience. The location is a short drive from the main cancun area and fairly secluded, but it is very convenient to get to many of the tourist attractions in the region. We have driven to most of the Mayan ruin spots, to Cancun, Isle Mujeres, horseback...

Our trip consisted of 11 people. All of us had a fantastic time. The accommodations were clean and very comfortable. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff was extremely nice. The only drawback was that the beach was too rocky and rough to swim. Other than that the entire family completely enjoyed their stay!!

Accommodations, staff, food and cleanliness were all above average. We always felt welcomed by all the staff members and there were a lot of them. One of the cleanest places we've ever stayed. The food and service in all the restaurants and buffets was outstanding.

We found some minor problems with the room. Sliding glass door on balcony had a broken lock so room was not secure. The shower doors opened toward the shower head and in our room would not stay closed. So water was spraying on the bathroom floor every time we showered. Major construction of new sections of resort ran 6 days...

We recently spent a week at the Hotel Marina El Cid in Puerto Morales. It was the most relaxing vacation I have enjoyed in years.

This place had excellent customer service, great food(especially the Italian), the pools were refreshing, & the beach was well kept(a little rocky but not bad compared). The only reason it was not rated excellent by me is the cost of wifi. You don't realize you need it until you have no way of checking into your flight! Otherwise great place:)

“The adjoining room sound transfer thru the door is an issue. I'd also rather the room cleaning was done at a consistent time of day. ”

“We have stayed in a platinum room and a regular room and the regular room has been nicer. I think it may be because it is one of the buildings that is further from the beach and thus newer.”
