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.

Everything was good. Food was good(we did the all inclusive and we got back to Dallas stuffed). Customer service was great everyone is so friendly and nice. We really enjoyed our stay. View is beautiful.

Amazing Resort

Fantastic service all around and very accommodating for a food allergy. The scuba diving was perfect and our boat could easily access the resort. Amenities were great and rooms very well kept, seems like this place has to be the best resort on the island!

Tried and True Location

I have been coming to CZM since the 80s and to El Cid for at least 10 years now and I will continue to go to El Cid when I can. If you want uppity--this is not your place, if you want nice facilities, friendly people, and a great atmosphere, THIS IS YOUR PLACE. Kind friendly service, clean, and accommodating. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. I will be back again and again.

Mixed Review

Advice: Do not purchase all inclusive option, do not eat from the buffet!Good:Nice smaller resortOlder but seems to have been kept up wellNot many childrenClose to most local attractionsLittle to no mosquitos/bugsRoom cleaned thoroughly dailyBeautiful ViewsGreat for snorkeling & divingFood is very good when ordering from MENU Room service is promptVery accommodating when requesting room change Beautiful waterfall4ft section for swimming with fishBadUpon checking in I was assigned a room on the fourth floor with a view obstructed by a tree. I was accepting of this seeing the room had a microwave, fridge, stove top. The worst part was the bed, the room had a murphy bed that was hard as a rock. I expected much better bedding for the money I paid for my stay. I requested a room change, which they agreed to. The bed in my new room was 100 times better. No fridge, microwave, or stove top in the new room. Purchased all inclusive option, no stocked fridge, no beach service.The drinks are very weak. We may have been discriminated against as all inclusive guest when it comes to strength of drinks. $40.00 per card if lost (room & towel)UGLYI would not feed my dog the food served on the buffet. Two of the three nights were buffet themed. The food is terrible and ill prepared. This was a huge letdown seeing the food ordered when dining off the menu was excellent. I became sick on my final night after eating from the buffet. I was awakened by loud construction going on in neighboring rooms (hammering, drilling, furniture moving). I came home from my getaway weekend exhausted instead of being well rested.

There were 4 adults and we stayed in the tower rooms of the hotel. The hotel is dated, but well maintained. The service was excellent from the front desk to the waiters. The activity director worked hard making sure everyone had a good time. We enjoyed snorkeling and relaxing pool side.
