Our Opinion

Ideal resort for families of all ages. Facilities are nice, clean and well-maintained. A great mix of food items in both the buffet and a la carte restaurants. The resort set up definitely caters more to kid-friendly activities, so there is never a shortage of things to do. The beach area is great, with the exception of some rocky parts felt a few feet from shore. The drink menus are OK and vary in quality, as they very rarely served top-shelf alcohol. Overall however, this is still a great resort option for families.


Overview
Hotel Marina El Cid is a low density complex composed of a mix of colonial and modern style architecture, ranging from spacious Junior Suites to luxurious Three Bedroom Suites, in low rise buildings a maximum of four floors. Consisting of shopping areas, a 300 ship state-of-the-art marina and yacht club, a museum, botanical gardens, and an Eco-Tourist Park, all set in the picturesque fishing town of Puerto Morelos.

Excellent Vacation Place for Your Family

From the moment we checked into the Hotel Marina El Cid Spa and Beach Resort we felt welcomed by everyone that we talked with and came in contact with. The check in procedure was relaxing, comfortable and friendly. We felt important and when you are greeted with "Welcome Home", you know that your stay will be enjoyable. The service from all staff is very friendly, know matter where you are or with whom you come in contact with. Just walking the grounds you are greeted by anyone working at the El Cid with either an Hola or Buenos Dias. Our family of 5 can't wait to go back again. Our "butlers" were the best. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. The pools were outstanding as were the activities coordinators with all they do to make you feel welcome and involved.Thank you to ALL the staff at the Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort for a GREAT vacation for our family. Can't wait to be able to come back "home" to the Riviera Maya and the El Cid.

Terrible hotel beach

The hotel beach looked really nice but once you got in to the water it was terrible,,, soooo many rocks it was impossible to walk and enjoy the resort beach. Very disappointed,,, we had to travel 30 - 40 minutes to the closest beach.

Great place!!!

This was a great family vacation. Loved the resort and the people were so nice. We had an awesome room and it was very clean. Food was mostly good. Fire show was phenomenal!!! Only downside I would say was their cost of pictures and wifi.
