Particular here was that he snorkeling (right in the resort ), the swim-with-dolphins, manatees (10 minutes away) and the restaurant (simply outstanding). Came back with incredible photos submerged, and professionally taken photographs of this dolphin swim. Hotel is nice and clean, with a fantastic opinion of those cruise ships that come in daily.
Our accommodations were greater than we ever anticipated. All the employees at El Cid worked really difficult to make us feel at home. Vickie Dzib constantly makes us feel at home. In addition to Jorge, Crisantos, Esther, Roberto, and all of the employees. We love the time we get to spend together in our second house. Thanks to these our holiday was superb!
Cozumel is a Mexican Caribbean island that you can not miss. I’m telling you because I’ve come at every opportunity I have. Traveling to Cozumel is cheap and convenient. Also, the experiences that you live here are unforgettable. From your arrival, until the last activity, you do with your party. Even the accommodation is remarkable. A couple of people recommended taking the tulum fly fishing tour if we wanted to do one of the most exciting activities here in Cozumel. El Cid La Ceiba is a great option. My friends and I were pleased to stay five nights during the vacation period. We stayed there to be near the downtown of Cozumel.
The place is excellent if you do not need to be”in town” because it is about 3 miles off. We walked into town and took taxis (about $5). The cruise ships docking nearby did not disturb us at all. We loved the snorkeling directly in front of the hotel! The team here is amazing and certainly added a great deal of pleasure to our excursion. Jose, Julio, Adrian, Paulino, Fabian, Jesus, and Hector became like family to us throughout our stay.
El Cid La Ceiba is a small hotel with only 84 rooms (though they have plans to build another tower) near the city of San Miguel de Cozumel. We spent a week over Christmas vacations and thoroughly loved it. Having been to a number of those big exclusive hotels in Cozumel and Riviera Maya, this one proved to be a refreshing experience. The resort itself had all of the needed amenities — beach, pool, restaurant, bar, massage — but the very best part was that La Ceiba is in city (along with also a walking distance to the city centre ), so we could appreciate easy accessibility to most of restaurants, stores and other attractions (such as the amusement park, that our daughter appreciated ) in city. Not all of the amenities are topnotch (such as elevators are slow and modest ), but I know that El Cid bought this hotel several years back and is focusing on enhancements. Along with the team at El Cid have a particular mention because of their friendliness and helpfulness.
Good value for the purchase price. The service was topnotch, and the food has been superb. The fitness center was down nearly the whole time we were there that was a bummer, and the pizza place was shut each day we were there too, but not completely their fault because the weather was bad. The hour of diving daily was fantastic, and it was just a 5 (100 pesos) trip!
The hotel was fine and front desk employees were very accommodating. We left a few room adjustments and they given all our requests with no hassle. The pool was fine and the beach area had lots of lounge chairs and umbrellas for all to enjoy. The only bad side of the stay was that the beds were horrible. Really challenging, lumpy mattresses and cushions along with the pull out sofa is similar to sleeping on concrete.
Overall superior hotel. The cruise day pass folks are debatable at taking area in whirlpool, swimming pool, beach chairs, as well as restaurant. Staff wasn’t as present in comparison to previous excursions. However, nicest from the team we have had overseas. Fantastic place. Like that you can not smoke at least.
