The bad, first the layout it kinda awkward it is placed on strip of land between the marina and ocean. Very few rooms with ocean views mainly marina views which are nice. Biggest issue was the pools closing at 9:00... More

We stayed for a week in a one bedroom suite and it was extremely spacious and well appointed for our stay. There was a fairly well stocked kitchen and could have easily cooked in the suite, but decided to take advantage of the all inclusive option. The water taxi access to the beach was very easy and frequent. Hanging out... More

El Cid Marina Beach Resort is a lovely property. We had a studio unit on the ground floor right next to the second pool. The room was huge and came with a kitchen that we did not use. The bathroom shower was large as was the whole bathroom and closet area. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean.... More

This may well have been the best spot I've ever been to. A small glimpse of heaven! I loved the hot tub with a slide right into the pool, the waterfall cavern, the iguanas, and the ferry over to the private beach. What an amazing place!
