Family vacation

Our family all met at the el Cid for a gathering during the holidays. We had a great time. The facility is kept very clean and the staff were extremely nice. The food was good overall. We found other places for dinner since reservations were required at the El Cid in advance and usually were booked. My only complaint is about the linens......wrong sized sheets that would not stay on the beds and the pillows were so hard that we ran to Walmart to buy our own.

Great place to get away and relax!

Excellent place to sit back, kick your feet up and enjoy and I was on a business trip. The facilities are top notch they're clean, modern, elegant and really make you feel welcome. The rooms come equipped with a full kitchen. You have access to all services.

Good resort, Bed were comfortable, Service was good. We had some noise issues due to blowing wind and they are very helpful to give us a different room. Breakfast and lunch was good but dinner need some improvements. Currency exchange rate was not good at the hotel, you can get a better rate if you go outside. We got 19 Mexican Dollars for 1 US dollar outside. We ate other places around the resort for some variety. There are some very good places to eat around the resort and are walking distance. Avoid all-inclusive deals. We did get a ride by El cid from the airport to the hotel but they will try to sell you time share while you are heading to the hotel. We did sign up but did not buy the expensive time share. Signing up for time share presentation we end up getting free massage for my wife a boat trip to stone Island. You can get cash or trips etc… and my advice to negotiate everywhere. Retuning back to airport you must get a taxi. We ordered the Uber and they did not like that. Uber cost $9.00 US, taxi was little expensive. Overall good experience.

Beautiful vacation

My family and I stayed for two weeks. We had a great time. The site was beautiful, clean and accessible. The beach is pristine. The meals were tasty and the variety of restaurants was amazing. Be careful of the various options... Elite, VIP, Millionaire, Guest etc... not all guests have all advantages. The tennis courts were amazing and overall our vacation pas great. However: Several secuirty issues need to be adressed on the Castilla Tower. Also, over the christmas break, there was a severe shortage of long chairs which was very frustrating. Also, you need to expect to be approached by the "timeshare" section of this hotel.The service was very poor initially but got much better as we tipped.... There are random bands that play on the beach late at night that can be annoying.

Clean and beautiful resort

The room check in is quick but room is not ready. Then the assigned room was changed 3 times every time I ask if the room is ready. Other than that, everything is fine.Transportation is convenient by taxi, or public bus.The bus Pebalo Centero on right side of resort entrance costs 10 Pasco each person to downtown. We took the bus to Aquarium and downtown. There are many restaurants close by.
