El Cid La Ceiba Beach

- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionThe 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.
My friend and I went to this resort after we zip lined, but access to the sea was limited. They allowed young men there to place obscene music VERY loudly, and there were children present. The staff seemed super nice and helpful otherwise. It was not an over night trip nor were we there to see much of the inside of the hotel. The place itself was very clean, nice, and otherwise was okay. I was just hoping for more of a beach day and was disappointed.
I have been coming to Cozumel now for years and have stayed at 5 different places and this by far is my favorite place. Eluzai was more than happy this trip to put me on the second floor in the tower so my dive equipment could dry easily and safely. All the waiters at the restaurant and pool were super nice and spot on with the service. We bought all inclusive this trip and it was well worth the money . I will be looking to go AI again next year . They have the best place to snorkel on the island with their on pier for pickup diving. You will see many snorkel tours letting guest off to snorkel our section gazing at the plane wreck that's below. The room was super clean every day with maid service and several nights the bed was turned down with a chocolate waiting. I just love El Cid and all the staff that makes our vacation a blast with movie night, Mayan Dance night, Authentic Mexican music and Dancing night, jewelry booths , vender at the beach area as well. You are also just across the street from a convenience store and mall area. Just the perfect place for me! thanks again Elulzai and Staff! Marketa Howard
We had three reservations, two rooms booked for a king size bed and one room with two queen sized beds all inclusive . One of the rooms (that was to be a king bed) was a pull out hard couch no bed. The add has receive $600.00 resort credits mega bucks. It's a coupon book that totals $ 600.00 dollars IF YOUR NOT ALL INCLUSIVE . Could not use a coupon in that book. It only has two places to eat one of which is a buffet which serves the same food day after day. If you ask for the menu its like you asked for the world. They don't even tell you about the menu we found out by other guest looking at it.Friday the pizza/pasta hut is closed all day and no menu that day you have to eat the same food at the buffet all day or go hungry. If you try to order certain things off the menu, it will cost you money . What about the all inclusive ? NO you still have to pay for some items. At 10:00 to 10:30 PM lights out NO FOOD NO ALCOHOL not a place around to get a bottle of water or a soda . Hope your not hungry cause your cut off ! Lights at the pool go out , everything is shut down. If the cruise ships are in the local shops are open BUT as soon as the cruise ships leave the shops close. Very little is open on Sundays because generally no cruise ships come in that day . At least that day you can have a beautiful view of the ocean due to no cruise ships being a view blocker. No place to really swim in the ocean its all rocks or one step out and its past your head. No beach to walk out on. Its good for snorkeling. The room's are clean. Be careful of the glass bottom boat ride, its just a boat no glass bottom, they take you to the reefs so you can look off the side of the boat and hope to see fish or something.
Overall, our experience at Cozumel was delightful. Snorkeling right in the hotel made it even more delightful. All the employees were always very helpful and quick to assist. They were never rude, on the other hand they were very very nice and hardworking.
The property is clean. People working there are all very friendly and nice. The view of the room can be breathtaking - if no cruise ship is docking on the closer dock, otherwise they can block half of your ocean view. The bar/restaurant is quite nice and also have a good view. Frozen drinks are quite tasty and priced reasonably, 4-6 happy hour 2 for 1 making them even better. My unit has a half kitchen which was adequate with good ventilation. It is just a 5 mins drive to Cozumel downtown but could be hard to find a spot in the parking lot. I am wondering if it is because of the on site car rental using up most of the spots. There isn't really a beach on site, but it provides a wonderful spot for snorkeling.
