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.

Great for day pass off ship

Left the carnival pier and had a short walk to El Cid. Paid for beach access for $20 each with a $12 food and beverage credit. Beer was cold and food good. Kids had fun playing in the sand. Beach chairs were plentiful. View is of the Royal Caribbean pier. Snorkel equipment is available for use. Service was excellent.

amazing trip

Need list to say this was the best trip we've ever had. The hotel is so pretty, the food is awesome there's so much to do and everyone so friendly. The activities director, Adrian will be your favorite person on the trip. He's one of the most outgoing and friendly person you'll ever meet we absolutely love them and we can't wait to come back

It was ok but not great

Resort is small. Elevators in hotel were terrible...... got stuck in them one night for about 15 minutes until workers pried them open. Used stairs after that experience... everyone that was staying there was talking about how bad and unpredictable elevators were. Buffets were below average at best. Nights we got to choose off of menu were really above average meals. top notch steaks, shrimp, salmon and fish were very good. we had a 3 bedroom sweet on 11th floor - beds very comfortable, living and dining room were smaller than we're use to. Overall we will look for a resort closer to downtown (shopping district) next time. For sure would not do the all inclusive at this resort again unless you just want to drink. There are a lot of great places to eat downtown instead of the buffets at resort.

Avoid this resort

Very disappointed when I booked this resort for a day when I was on a cruise upon looking at the resort it looked a lot nicer then it was It calls itself a 4 star I won't even give it a star. There was NO beach The pool was small. The sand was fake. It was a concrete slab with 3 inches of sand on it. The food was terrible And when I complained the staff did not care. My package included one hour of snorkeling which my wife and I could not do because the water was too rough and the dive master advised he was not going into the water. Overall simply terrible El CID should be avoided go to a resort with a real pool and a real beach

Great week!

We spent a week at El Cid and had great service from all staff, but especially from David, our concierge. He not only gave great advice and booked activities, he went above and beyond to help with a medical issue. We enjoyed the beach and had no trouble finding chairs in both sun and shade. The food was delicious. The small resort atmosphere enabled us to meet interesting people and share good conversations. We weren't too keen on the Murphy bed, but the room was clean and well maintained.
