Our Mexican vacation at El Cid
We had a very relaxing and great experience at El Cid. Everything was wonderful. Would recommend for couples or families. There was both there and they all seemed to be having a good time. The food was excellent.
Eaten alive by Mosquitoes!!!
Staff and food were great. The French restaurant was my absolute favorite. Enjoyed the adult infinity pool with the jacuzzi. I will never come back to this resort. The are armies of mosquitoes attacking us everyday! The lotion repellent they provided in the rooms did not work. Our room was infested with flies and mosquitoes. I was eaten alive! BEWARE!!! Bring your DEET mosquitoes bug spray. Could you believe they didn’t sell any bug spray at whole entire resort!?
A great place to get away
The resort and staff are wonderful. Oscar and Valentin at the pool bar made the trip extra special. To have people like them always greet you with a smile and remember what you are drinking makes for a great trip. Willy, the sommelier, was a pleasure to talk to and work with. He made some great recommendations at dinner and took time multiple nights to check on us and our meals. A great place, with great people to get away and refresh.
Live Like Royalty!
The resort in Cancun is beautiful! The numerous restaurants and bars on this property will astonish you. Here is a scenario: Room 374 in Bldg. 17. Private entrance. You have two bellboys to bring you refreshments for your fridge. You can order room service and they will serve you in the room. The balcony provides a jacuzzie and a great view. Housekeeping came twice a day. We had a driver to take us around the resort. Excellent live entertainment. Elvis made a great appearance!
Excellent all inclusive resort. Great food, drinks, pool and entertainment. We go back every year. I can't recommend it enough. Such a great place to go and relax and unplug. No need to think or plan.
