I had an amazing stay at Marina El Cid. We upgraded our room to an ocean view which was definitely worth the extra money. Our room was great, the pools were great, the service was great, the drinks were great, and the food was great. You do need to make reservations for dinner at the restaurants otherwise you can’t get in, but you can only make 2 reservations a day which can be frustrating, but worth it because all of the restaurants are amazing. I enjoyed the buffet style breakfast and lunches but do wish you could take food to go as the resort is very large! Overall it was a very clean resort with very helpful and friendly staff! Will definitely be back!

Over promise under deliver. Pretty bad place

i went for wifes birthday based on reviews and am puzzled because the resort was the worst place i have ever been to. The good: the grounds are extremely well maintained and the normal everyday food hall has amazing food. the bad: incredible bad small from sea weed, we did not even to go the beach once (in the water i mean due to smell and brown water), the front guest services says one thing (went for wifes bday said they would do something special for her and never did) so i was pretty upset about that being a 5 star which i dont understand either. they always try to sell you something, everythign is for sale, wifi, trips etc., taxi,they are more concerned with charging small amounts but they do add up instread of focusing on service. front bar closes at 1 as well as the disco, very far from anything nearby, service at front bar horrible, as soon as you cheack in they start to sell you on a better room for hundreds of USD more (first thing they do) and then the whole time share thing they try and sell you on is absoltely true from other reviewers. my room had 2 bad outlets, 1 bad ceiling fan that kept making noise at night (which they did fix) but all in all definately no repeat for me. i went to Cancun and the hotels are beaches are much better but i have been to far better palces in the world. this was a disaster but my wife and i made the best of it for her bday and we did get a chance to celebrate. pls think twice you get what you pay for 5 star at that price (something wrong) Dont make the same mistake i did.

Excellent Service
