Our Opinion
The El Cid La Ceiba Beach is a great spot located within some of the best views in Cozumel. The resort is notable for their amazing and accommodating service. The rooms are fairly well kept. There are plenty of buffet items as well as a la carte restaurants to choose from. The area does have a tendency to get a little loud, due to the fact that the resort is located near a cruise and ferry dock.
Located on the southern shores of Cozumel Island, this hotel offers snorkeling and shore diving.
Location: 10 minutes from airport, 5 minutes from downtown Cozumel.

Could do with a refurb

La Ceiba is in a good location and staff are generally quite friendly. The hotel could do with a bit of an update. The room decor was a little dated and parts of the hotel could do with a spruce. The pizza at the trattoria was a particular highlight so definitely check it out during your stay. The cruise ship port is right next door which is a little annoying having the cruise ships ruin the beautiful view but overall it's a good place to stay.

Great Time at El Cid

My husband and I stayed at El Cid last week for spring break! The facilities were wonderful and clean and we really enjoyed ourselves. The staff at El Cid were there to answer all of our questions and help with any concerns. We also enjoyed the activities like bingo and the fire show on our last night. One thing we weren't too thrilled about is the day passes being sold to some of the customers coming off the the cruise ships docked near the resort. One of the days the pool and beach area were very crowded due to the extra people that paid for a day pass to enjoy the amenities of the resort as the guests. As a resort I would definitely rethink that idea and allow your guests to be able to enjoy the amenities rather than being pushed out by cruise ship guests.

The Place to Stay

This is an older hotel. We last stayed here 19 years. But it is a wonderful, clean, comfortable and peaceful place with a friendly staff. Its located right on the water within walking distance of downtown. A nice snorkeling area is in front of the hotel. Beautiful water views from the tower rooms and from the restaurants. Close to the busy International Cruise Pier, but nice to see the ships coming in and out. Dockside pick up for dive boats and fishing charters. Never had a bad meal or a bad drink. Will stay here again if we find our way back to Cozumel.

Like Staying With Family...ONLY BETTER ! Charm, Charisma, and FUN!

After a rough start with check in, Gabby and David were able to get us situated into a gorgeous suite in the tower...(Where the rooms have been updated!) YEAH ! In any event we later requested a room on the ground level and our request was granted. We have been numerous places in Cozumel, yet the EL CID is our favorite place in the world. The staff is very efficient and capable. We enjoyed our stay and the way we were treated made it feel like a REAL vacation. From Andres (G.M.) to Adrian (REC Director), they were all wonderful. A special thank you to Magdalena, Gabby, David, Iveta, Lee, Mario, Chuck, Armondo, Alejandro, Oscar and especially our favorite waiter Pedro ! (He never takes a day off!).

All -Inclusive for a day from the Carnival Magic

On a recent cruise to Cozumel, another couple and my husband and I went to the El Cid for the day. We had researched several places to spend our day in Cozumel, but chose the El Cid. After coming out of the port area it was about a 5 minute walk to the left. We met the gentleman at the El Cid booth on the street who showed us around. The El Cid is a beautiful resort and a great place to stay for the day. We laid out in the sun, snorkeled around in the beautiful turquoise water, ate a wonderful lunch at the beautiful open air restaurant and had a wonderful stay for the day! Thank you for the great day in Cozumel! Pedro was a great waiter!
