What's to Love

Chic, modern rooms (with balconies or terraces) that slay you with magical ocean, pool, or garden views - hypnotically gorgeous any way you slice it. (So gorgeous, the staff might have to tie you up and carry you out to get you to leave).

Room service 24/7 - if this doesn't say rock star, we don't know what does. (Well, "trashing hotel rooms" also says rock star, but let's not go there).

The melt-in-the-sand spa that offers temazcal steam baths (it's a native Mexican sweat lodge purification thing), hydrotherapy zone (where you wash away the sweat), a Zen garden (ohm) and to go along with that, Yoga and tai chi instruction.

Scaramanga Bar and Lounge, where you can enjoy those necessary cocktails while lying on plush mattresses on the warm sand. (When you swoon over this scenario, at least you'll have a soft place to sand).

The delicious, heated infinity pool along with the 22,000 sq. ft. free-form pool (yowsa, that's a lotta pool) with swim-up bar, cascading waterfalls and in-water lounge chairs.

Designated children's area is a vortex of waterslides. Luckily, you can retire to the less irritating, un-splashy adult section with a spa tub, sun deck, and a Jacuzzi bar-and-massage area. (Are you already turning to Jell-o?)


What We'd Change

The price of a secluded beach is feeling cut off from the rest of the Golden Zone. When you need action, a complimentary shuttle gets you to it.


Why You Should Go

Less than 20 minutes from Cancun International Airport so during the ride in, you can be thinking ahead about your first celebratory cocktail. (Mojito? Marg? Shot of tequila?)

The resort overlooks Puerto Morelos National Reef Park on the Mayan Riviera and is strategically nestled between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. It's just a short hop to the charming fishing village of Puerto Morelos. So you have lots of options, should you get an itch to explore.

It's scuba diver and snorkeler heaven - you can explore the off-shore reef that ranks as the second largest in the world.

There's a Spring Break policy: minimum age to check-in is 25. (You don't need any of those ruffians to ruin your chill).

Lotsa water stuff: windsurfing, kayaking, Hobie cats, boogie boards. Lotsa UNwater stuff: pilates, yoga, treadmills, spinning room.

Access to eight golf courses, just ask the concierge to arrange a tee time for you. (That's what they're there for, to wait on you).

In the air: helicopter/airplane rides. On the ground: you can rent a scooter/moped.

Hotel Description

El Cid Marina Beach: Fun for Everyone

Here, in gorgeous Mazatlan, in addition to not only channeling the ancients, you can also channel all your worries right into the dreamy teal ocean. Cool breezes, palm trees overhead and sunset on a private beach will also help sooth your soul that's long in need of rejuvenation. Or maybe you need a few minutes of soaking in the heated infinity pool, followed by a refreshing dip into the 22,000 sq. feet free-form pool, complete with a swim-up bar, cascading waterfalls and in-water lounges. There's a network of waterslides for to keep your kiddos happy and for you, an adults only section where you can chillax in the spa tub, sun deck and the Jacuzzi bar-and-massage area. And when it comes to drinks, which are unlimited, you can practice the sacred ritual of Tipping Your Bartender. Here's more of the Unlimited Goodness you get:
  • Buffet and a la carte gourmet meals - bring your appetite.
  • All domestic and imported beverages (woo hoo!)
  • Nightly entertainment and/or theme shows.
  • Daytime pool and beach activities - or you can just lounge.
  • Kid's club (sometimes, you just need a break from these darlings).
  • Taxes and gratuities. We've got your back on this one.
