    Kobo is a must try . It’s very similar to Benihana but service and knife skills/show are definitely better . Eduardo and Alberto were awesome . Our favorite dining experience during our week long visit . Definitely recommending this to friends and family

    El Cid Vacation

    Our visit was made all the better due to the staff who were extremely attentive to all our request and therefore we would like to recognize Alberto, Sebastian, Braulio our butlers. Jose server from Adult pool. We also want to recognize Marco from breakfast service and the amazing platinum concierge team led by Sarah!

    No Regret

    If you’re looking for a tranquil, relaxed, and overall serene experience, this hotel is the place for you. It is quiet and provides a little bit of “noise” in the context of evening entertainment in the form of shows and live music. I appreciated that this was not a party hotel. Guest reverenced other guests quiet time and is also family friendly with well-mannered children. The food, spa, staff, property, and views of the beach were superb. The only disappointment was there was an excessive amount of seaweed which prevented (slightly) most guest from being able to fully immerse themselves from going into the ocean; however all of the other perks of the hotel made up for it. Secure this resort, you won’t have any regrets.

    Just book the trip already.

    Very honest review here! First of all, definitely book Club Platinum because the perks you get are unmatched. The beach for the Club is nicer and less crowded, plus it is right next to the Zan-zi Bar, so worth it. Someone comes to take your order for drinks constantly, you ultimately are on vacation and can relax- right down to having drinks handed to you, especially water in the heat! Luis and Cali were our butlers and made our experience that much better. If we had any questions, especially silly ones, they were answered immediately. Dinner reservations and golf carts were all offered upon request and if it weren’t for them, we wouldn’t have gotten so much done in little time (in terms of excursions and just tips and tricks around the resort). We are so grateful for all the staff and I hope to come back here again next year. It was my first time at an all-inclusive resort and it is worth your money. My only thing is maybe having some music play at the pools or beach would’ve been bopping, but hey, the resort is mostly couples or families and I came with my friend, so the choice of a relaxing/quiet resort was our fault. With that being said, there is no night club, they did have a DJ at one of the bars for a couple nights during our stay, nothing close to a night club but still fun! I wish they had a pool party every other day because we missed the only day they offered it for the week (Thursday in our case) since we were away in Tulum for the day. Highly recommend it, rooms are cleaned daily and you are left plates of cute desserst, options for aromatherapy in the rooms, even a pillow menu! Thank you again Luis and Cali:))

    Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort is a great 2nd home!

    Our week up to Mother's Day at Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort was made especially wonderful by our butler, Are Manuel Mendez Damas! We usually have a team of both Manuel Diaz & Are for butlers, however we were glad to know Manuel was on vacation enjoying the arrival of his newest family member! :-) The El Cid resorts' staff members at Ventus, Marina, & Ventus Ha resorts always make us feel welcome and treat us with great care as respected & honored family members! The grounds always look fabulous, lush, and well-maintained, and it was good to see how much progress has occurred on the beach reclamation project since we were there in January 2024. We also noted the increase in al fresco dining options at some of the restaurants and the presence of marked pickleball courts by the Delores Mercado in addition to the pickleball & tennis on the rooftop at the Marina Lobby building. Being M owners, we were disappointed to be told at our first hydrotherapy session at the spa that the massage at the end of the treatment is now an additional $10 cost. Not knowing this information in advance, we had not brought enough extra cash funds to cover the increase in costs and corresponding tips, so that was a disappointment to lose part of a benefit we had been enjoying for previous years' multiple stays. We look forward to our return to Ventus in a few months!
