    El Cid Marine Riviera Maya, still our Favorite long stay.

    This is our 4th 3 or 4 week stay at El Cid Marina, and all inclusive resort that is now really 3 resorts in one. The consistent high quality of facilities, services, food service, makes long stays possible. Better staff do not exist anywhere, and hurrah to El Cid for making all staff locals, and for providing essential staff support such as commuting buses throughout the region.

    2nd Trip to El Cid

    Unfortunately there was no beach. We came with friends, and the food this time was just alright and the roomservice food was not that great. Our room smelled horribly and I had them look at it and nothing was done. I had to air it out everytime we came in.

    El Cid Spa

    Nice place for family vacation depending on the building your room accommodations are in. The property grounds are very well kept and the service in all restaurants and pool area was excellent. the liquor selection was average at best.

    A Beautiful Resort by Nature and Sea But With Spotty Food, Drinks and Service

    We enjoyed the serene close to Nature setting by the sea of El Cid in the building (#18) we were lodged in. The pools - esp the infinity pool - and the buildings, landscaping and facilities are spacious and beautiful. However, the meals were very hit or miss across the different restaurants : Some - like A'akat, Mediterranean and Italian were very good. But others (including the French and seafood restaurants) were poor in both food quality and service. Drinks available were far too limited - only one beer and three wines by the glass. And the wines were quite insipid and tasteless. Most staff were courteous and helpful. However, guest services were marred by an overly aggressive focus on selling time shares. And the hostesses in several restaurants were reluctant to allow choice of seating. The nightly entertainment shows were enjoyable - especially the Mexican culture ones. Overall, we enjoyed our time at El Cid. Especially the serene landscaping, closeness to the sea and to nature in the building (#18) we were in. Nightly shows - esp Mexican culture -were very good. Were it not for the points raised above, notably hit-or-miss food quality, poor drinks selections and spotty service - we would willingly consider returning.
