Good but....
Jan 30 2018
When we opened the door to our room we were stunned at how spacious and lovely our room(s) were! The view, the space, the decorating -- all so nice! By the next morning, though, we realized the A/C didn't work great -- so we handed in a maintenance request. Unfortunately by the end of the trip it was never dealt with. Like the mirror in the large, marbled bathroom -- the one that hadn't been fully cleaned before we came and never was cleaned while we were there. It seemed that everything started out well, but there was always a seeming catch. Either you sat through the a long ala carte menu or you ate at a mostly unvarying buffet. There were restaurants to visit with reservations -- but we never took the time. The staff was incredibly friendly -- yet we purchased the all-inclusive package and there were tip jars literally everywhere and often the service men and women would "hang around" kinda looking for a tip. We wish we'd known and been prepared for that. Otherwise, the beach is clean and lovely., the swimming pools are sparkling and the quiet pool very nice to sit by if you indeed want quiet. The lack of English speaking by the maids can be a hindrance at times, but luckily I remembered enough from my college days that I could converse. I don't like to complain, and it sounds like that's all I'm doing here -- but I'm trying to give an accurate sense of our vacation.

The El CID Moro
Jan 06 2017
The hotel was nice, a little dated but for the price acceptable. The beach is not owned by the hotel so you will be overwhelmed with people trying to sell you things. There are cockroaches outside (sometimes inside) the hotel (it is Mexico hot weather and water equals bugs) so don't leave any plates of food out from room service take them out immediately or they will be in your room. Our stay was pretty good until the 4th day. We could hear the neighbor in the room to the right of us turning on the water in the shower it was so loud we thought our shower was on. The sleeper sofa is not made for an adult so the room does not sleep 3 or four same sex people comfortably. The ocean view is definitely the way to go it was breathtaking everyday sunrise and sunset. The Moro is definitely the better of the other EL cids.

I have the opportunity to stay with my friends At the Cid Moro and we have no regrets, it perfect for us, excellent service, food was delicious, we didn’t have leave the place because it was in front of the beach and the bar as well, Perfect for fun. The hotel is 5 - 10 min walk from the hotel and restaurant with the perfect location

We loved the rooms and the location. We had the best sunsets and the view straight to the sea. The service we received in all the different restaurants. The best was the pool area was fun the best service and relax.

Excellent resort! Lots to do ....or relax and do nothing at all, it is your vacation after all. Food is top quality, (keep in mind, that because you don’t like a particular dish, it doesn’t mean the food is not good) People that work here really do care about the guests, and go out of their way to please people and give them what they ask for. The staff need to be treated better and respected (some guests need to be reminded that the staff are people too) they work hard for us.

The pools were large and sparkling clean. The pools were beautifully designed for jumping off high places, sliding down slides, and games. Enrique made all the poolside activities really fun, what a funny guy! He also emceed some of the nightly shows with style! I have to mention pool area manager Juan who kept everything running smoothly and gave great service. What people skills! Just beyond the pools is the wide long stretch of beach! The waves were perfect size to buggie board, the water temp perfect to stay in all day! Loads of activity on the beach as well: boat rides to Deer island, parasailing, volley ball and -yes- venders which add to the mexican craziness on the beach! They are not pushy, but sweet people who if you do not make eye contact, will leave you alone. Nothing beats the patio breakfast on the ocean at La Concha. An opulent buffet is offered daily, including mimosas. We commend our friend Martin and hard working Miguel for the fine breakfast service we received. Everyone's favorite is Rosy who has been making omelettes to order for 15 years now at El Cid. She always has a friendly word , bright smile, and remembers her guests. Last but not least, manager Guiermo is everywhere at once and because of him, things are well run in the diningroom. He greats us warmly every day. We appreciate it. You can have a gourmet romantic dinner under the stars, waves lapping nearby, at La Concha, OR romance at the Italian restaurant Al Cazar. Waiter Reuben sings beautiful opera songs in his deep lovely voice as you dine! The salad bar includes fresh mussels, yummy italian bread, specialty cheeses in addition to veggies. Our favorite waiter at the Algerian restaurant El Patio is Julien. We look for him every year. His service is impeccable. The grilled meats aren't bad either! At the Mexican restaurant, La Cascada, there is a station where hand made tortillas, tacos and sopas are made to order in front of you by scratch! If you want to try good food outside the resort, walk down the beach ( or take a pulmania taxi ) to PANCHO'S on the beach. We loved spanish lessons by the pool, pool exersize IN the pool, and especially cooking demonstrations by chef Louis and Enrique on the ocean side patio. He made paella, seafood stew, shrimp ceviche, chicken enchiladas raw tuna in an exotic sauce, and more while we watched his techniques and ate it after for lunch! So, there are all kinds of ways to have a really fun time at El Cid. We mention staff by name because they become friends. The El Cid staff is a true delight. The grounds and interiors are being cleaned 24/7. The rooms we have stayed in have been clean and comfortable with gorgeous views of the ocean and sunsets. As members, we don't pay for wifi but there are computers set up in public lounges which DO provide wifi.
