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.

Pretty decent hotel by Cozumel standards

Actually visited June 2011 for a relative's destination wedding (I'm from Oklahoma, USA). Nice enough place, but not really "nice" like an American resort. Drinks were watered down, on site restaurant was so-so. Staff is much nicer if you start off your stay by giving hem all a huge tip. Photo is a view from our room's balcony.

2nd time back

We just got back from our 2nd stay at El Cid. We loved it and will return. The snorkeling is amazing! The staff are top notch. Adrian, Paulina and Virginia to name a few. This is a small resort which is what we like about it. All the rooms are ocean front. It is a quick cab ride from the airport and you can walk down to the pier and go shopping. If your looking for a small laid back place to sun, snorkel and relax this is a perfect spot.

Great snorkeling, wonderful staff

We really enjoyed our stay here. You can't beat the snorkeling area here. Rooms were average - clean and nice. The woman at the front desk, Ricio (may have spelled name wrong) was very nice and welcoming! Wait staff on the beach were all friendly. Thank you Alejandro, Virginia, Juan, and the other wait staff and the bartender Paolo (may have spelled wrong also) - very fun and friendly. The dinner waiter was wonderful also, did not catch his name though but he had pretty blue eyes! Also enjoyed talking with Oscar and Adrian. All staff was enjoyable and I would love to come back to see them. Had a great time laying on the beach and snorkeling all day!

The Mayans are not gone

Fantastic, our room was on the ground floor with a private patio on the beach. The fresh water pool was only 50 feet away and the main restaurant another 50 feet. Concierge service was remarkable. They arranged discounted tours for 3 different Mayan ruins which was our primary reason for going there. We visited, Chichen Itza, Coba, and and Tulum. Chichen Itza was awe inspiring, Coba was beautiful, and Tulum has the only Mayan temple that you are still allowed to climb. The restaurant was excellent as was the service over all. Staff was friendly without being without being pervasive and always helpful.

Annual Dive Trip with Teresafish Scuba/Great Hotel

I dive with a group of buddies who go to Cozumel every year; we’ve been using El Cid La Ceiba for many years. The location is good: not far from town but also well on the way to the south reefs, and right at the cruise ship pier so that’s entertaining. There are small stores, cantinas, etc. nearby with a large city market not far toward town. El Cid itself has everything we need and the staff remains very constant over the years, like old friends. Valet, maids, room service, front desk, restaurant, etc. are all good; hot-tub & pool at the bar with a liberal happy hour late afternoon; a little bit of beach, beach volleyball, lounge chairs, etc. We go to town most evenings but the El Cid breakfast and lunch/dinner menus are good. They also have several outdoor evening programs in the pool area during the week. We use the house dive shop only a bit when we shore dive from the dock. There is an outdoor shower, drying rack, gear rinse basin, dive lockers and M/F toilets… but the water exit steps at the shore line wall, not the dock, leaves something to be desired. The boat dock is open to other dive operations picking up & dropping off. There are almost always cabs and a van at the ready out front. Rooms are well suited for divers and there‘s large-towel service, safes in the rooms, etc. A/C is usually cold, hot water hot, and most things work. If not they will attend to it quickly. Overall, it’s a nice place that works well & we've stayed with El Cid for a long time.
