Beautiful resort and facilities. The food was excellent and a tasty variety each day. The staff was amiable and helpful. Overall pleasant first stay on Cozumel. Be prepared to pay extra for WIFI, and this is a little expensive.
We had an excellent trip again to El Cid La Ceiba Beach Hotel in Cozumel. Our accommodations were more than we expected. All the staff at El Cid worked very hard to make us feel at home. Vickie Dzib always makes us feel at home recommending great activities like the cozumel jeep tour near us. Along with Jorge, Crisantos, Esther, Roberto, and all the staff. We love the time we get to spend with them at our second home. Thanks to them, our vacation was excellent!
We had the pleasure of enjoying El Cid hotel and playing volleyball on sand and in the pool with these two. We had more fun with these two hosts several events we paid for before or after. For 2-3 hours it was great humor, very warm and welcoming and quite competitive. My daughters and wife got in on the games, and they’ve made one of our favorite memories from the entire week-long trip. Gracias amigos! We’ll be back hopefully soon.
Without a doubt, one of our favorite dive resorts in Cozumel. Juan Carlos and his team run a great onsite dive shop. El Cid is a beautiful resort that makes you feel like you’ve come home to your family in Mexico.
The water is beautiful and bright; we snorkeled right off the hotel dock/beach. We saw tons of sea life and had a blast. You can rent snorkel gear there (for a speedy price) and even book dive excursions leaving directly from the hotel dock.
There is a small beach area at the hotel that leads directly into the water and then there are 2 other man made beach/sandy areas with lawn chairs. The actual beach is sandy, but as you move into the water, it gets rocky. It didn’t bother us at all, but it was a tiny space.
Shoutout to Jose at the front desk of the hotel! He was excellent and so kind! He helped us out, gave us tips and great conversation. Janet at breakfast was also, and Christian was the man for hooking us up with drinks at the bar/restaurant. Thanks, guys!
