I am a mom of two boys age 10 & 7. We enjoyed our trip to Marina El Cid, but will not return due to the rocky beach. The pools were beautiful & my boys loved jumping off the waterfall cliff. The food was average & rooms were clean. This is definitely a kid friendly resort. The only major complaint...

Beautiful resort and so well maintained in the surrounding area and the rooms. We had great service from the employees. Loved the swimming pool, spa and hot tub. We will be recommending to everyone to go to the El Cid Resort. We are excited to have 3 more visits.

Marked an item off our bucket list. Properly was lovely, food choices very limited with all dining requiring reservations except buffet. Would have liked more Mexican choices. Beach spots were limited due to people setting up then leaving their spots with their items so as to not loose their spots, that was very disappointing.

We recently returned from our 4th, 5th or 6th visit to El Cid (depending on which of the 5 of us you talk to). Obviously, we love El Cid. The rooms are roomy and comfortable. The first week, my wife and I had a double room back by the lagoon. Very nice room with good service. There was a problem...

A mixed review here. The good: The location is incredible, the grounds are quite clean, and the staff is very friendly. The pool was nice, but with some rough patches and definitely areas where the kids and I scraped ourselves up (on steps and fake rocks). The waterslide was a big hit with the kids. Drinks were delicious and all-too-available....

The property, food, and service are terrific. Rooms are spacious and well equipped, but our building was in need of some updates. Nightlife could be better, but the beach is disappointing, no where near the gorgeous Carribean that you expect in Cancun. Pools are great though! The food is fabulous, try all the gourmet restaurants.

One week at El Cid Cancun (actually Puerto Morales) was fantastic. Weather was not perfect, but the resort was large enough and enjoyable enough that the few rain showers did not dampen our vacation. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Maintenance and cleanliness of buildings and grounds was impeccable. Several restaurants and a buffet are on-site so you never have...
