Fun in the Sun

We had a great time! We upgraded to a ocean view room that was available upon our early arrival. Then we went straight to the pool. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was good and several restaurants to please you appetite. The excursions were priced reasonably and fun, The only thing that would have made this better is that there was free wifi throughout the resort for multiple devices.

Family getaway

Our third trip to this resort and not our last! Returned from EL Cid September 14th after a one week stay with our sons and daughter in law. We were very disappointed that the main pool was under repair but appreciate the fact that they keep this resort and grounds in excellent shape. It is just as well manicured as our first visit about 8 years ago. The entire staff was courteous, friendly and helpful and appear genuinely happy to be working there. The beach, though small and rocky in water is very picturesque and they are continually trying to maintain it. A lot of the sand was washed away in a hurricane a few years ago and nature has to replace! Highly recommend water shoes. The food at the buffets and ala carte restaurants is very good. I wish they would post a weeks worth of menus so you can choose easier as the offerings change daily. I appreciate the fact that small children are required to eat earlier in the restaurants as they become tired and cranky later on making it tough on both parents and other diners. The quality and consistency of the drinks left a lot to be desired! You never quite knew what you had in store when ordering the same drink-different taste and colors! Drinks in Lobby and restaurants were better than pool and beach bars. Although they had Crown, Jack, Captain Morgan, Absolute and Bacardi, the other mixers were house brands-mostly syrups. You must ask for brands to get them or you get house brands. The nightly entertainment was awesome but could be posted better so you don’t miss it! Looking for a return when the new section is open-looks like it will be beautiful.

Room too hot

The room we stayed in was too hot...the AC was working but if u were on one side of the room it was hot...when u got to the hotel there were people trying to get u to buy some type of membership but they said it wasn't time share and the places where u can go use it is not where we would like to travel and any ways we just went there to relax not to buy but besides that it was ok...the staff was great and they had a lot of restaurant options...the pool was great until they started to remodel it while we were there!

What's to Love

To get into the island groove, spend the day by the enormous pool and your evening at one of Hotel Marina El Cid Resort's many shows or classy bars.

 

What We'd Change

Hotel Marina El Cid Resort is located between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, so it's a good thing that there's plenty to do at this resort!

 

Why You Should Go

Though the resort is close to a wide variety of local hotspots, like Puerto Morelos, Cancun and Playa del Carmen, it is a quieter, relaxing resort.

Hotel Description

Hotel Marina El Cid Resort: Experience All-Inclusive Luxury

If you've been seeing white-sands, swaying palm trees and blue water instead of traffic jams, cramped cubicles and mindless sitcoms, you know it's time for a vacation. Choose Hotel Marina El Cid in Riviera Maya, where you'll find those palm trees and blue ocean, as well as warm breezes and a private beach of lovely white sand ready for you to ease your restless mind.

This all-inclusive, oceanfront resort, less than 20 minutes from Cancun International Airport, overlooks Puerto Morelos National Reef Park on the Mayan Riviera, just a hop, skip and a jump from the charming fishing village of Puerto Morelos. Scuba divers and snorkelers can explore the off-shore reef that ranks as the second-largest in the world, while the water lovers find their sanctuary in the heated infinity pool or the 22,000-sq-ft, free-form pool, complete with a swim-up bar, cascading waterfalls, and in-water lounge chairs. A designated children's area hosts a network of waterslides to keep the kids happy, while the adult-only section features a spa tub, sun deck, and a Jacuzzi bar-and-massage area.

But to find the essence of relaxation, go no further than Scaramanga Bar and Lounge, where you can enjoy all-inclusive cocktails while swaying in rope hammocks or lying on plush mattresses on the warm sand. Visit Hacienda Arrecife, poolside, for classic Mexican dishes and 100-plus brands of tequila to keep you palate wet. If you are hankering for something a little different, wander into El Alcazar for gourmet Mediterranean fare, where an extensive wine cellar and delicacies, such as duck breast and beef filet prove irresistible.

Complete your daytime adventure with a dolphin swim before returning to your exquisite Junior Suite, with an ocean, garden or pool view, where you'll find yourself surrounded by contemporary decor and a mild Mediterranean palette of warm colors. Or, if your energy still abounds, just stop by for a change of clothes before taking to the Lobby Bar Cafe & Lounge for a night of live music.
