Return trip to El Cid, and it was fantastic the resort is small, but the staff is very accommodating. Adrian is the best host ever! The food was good, I highly recommend the Tex mex omelette off the breakfast menu, and the BLT's are a great lunch choice. The rooms are nothing fancy, but very comfortable, the only negative is...

We decided to get away for a few days, after a tough January where we lost my father-in-law followed by over two weeks of illness ourselves. i only have one week off for Reading Week, so a 7 or 10 day option was out. We found El Cid La Ceiba on Expedia. Price was right, we thought watching the cruise...

We are part of the El Cid timeshare but this was our first time at this location. The resort staff is extremely helpful and nearly everyone is bilingual. The snorkeling right outside the resort is our second favorite site out of the six locations we did including a three reef tour. The one big downside is that enormous cruise ships...

The omelets are outstanding made to order and have almost anything you want. $9.00/person sitting on the water - cruise ships in view. They serve until 1030, so we arrived around 930 and had no wait at all. Fabian will take care of your every need...

We enjoyed our stay at the resort, staff is friendly and the food quality is high. The only "complaint is that the bed was hard for us however that was minor. We avoided the timeshare presentation with ease :)

We liked conceirges Christian , Eduardo, and Oscar. . We liked the activities/recreation guy Adrian. Restaurant was nice atmosphere. We liked watching the cruise ships at night with their lights, leaving their docks. We wished it was a bit closer to town &/or bus transportation on the island. We wished there was an expanse of nice beach to walk at...

The most personable experience ever at El Cid resorts. Wonderful. We really like El Cid resorts so this is a real treasure get a way for us. We will be back, Lord willing. Making the pizza was an awesome experience. The snorkeling was great, the rooms were nice. The City streets and tours were great too.

We decided to spend a couple of weeks at the El Cid ( Ceiba ) on our vacation break this year, a recommended location for snorkelling and scuba divers. It's true that the diving is amazing, as is the fantastic gastronomic delights we encountered. Our expectations of the El Cid Ceiba fell short of the level of accommodation and service...

The resort was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed a relaxing two week stay. They are very close to the cruise ships that come and go and you have to put up with occasionall noise from the ships and the influx of people using the resort property.

“We stayed in room 2219 in the original 3 level rooms. We asked to move to the 3rd floor for the views but decided not to move as our view was just great. Although a bachelor, it was perfect for us with the full kitchen, roomy shower and sundeck with table and 2 chairs where the sun hit around 4 p.m. ”
