Had a problem with keeping children out of the hot tub until it was brought to the Oscar's attention Even discussed the problem with the general manager, Andres'. Our room was cleaned every day. They exchanged the towels even though they were not left on the floor. Waterfront view, very nice. Best meal is the...

My biggest complaint is that there are no choices for dining,really only one restaurant t that has a buffet for breakfast, but for lunch and dinner you...

Didn't appreciate the 'hard sell' the minute we arrived. Pushy concierges, eager to get a commission, badgered us to schedule a tour & presentation of some other El Cid property. We've been RCI-Wyndham owners for almost 20 years and we don't go on vacations to be upsold. Annoying start. We arranged all of our tours/excursions before we arrived - this...

La Ceiba is in a good location and staff are generally quite friendly. The hotel could do with a bit of an update. The room decor was a little dated and parts of the hotel could do with a spruce. The pizza at the trattoria was a particular highlight so definitely check it out during your stay. The cruise ship...

This is an older hotel. We last stayed here 19 years. But it is a wonderful, clean, comfortable and peaceful place with a friendly staff. Its located right on the water within walking distance of downtown. A nice snorkeling area is in front of the hotel. Beautiful water views from the tower rooms and from the restaurants.

After a rough start with check in, Gabby and David were able to get us situated into a gorgeous suite in the tower...(Where the rooms have been updated!) YEAH !

On a recent cruise to Cozumel, another couple and my husband and I went to the El Cid for the day. We had researched several places to spend our day in Cozumel, but chose the El Cid. After coming out of the port area it was about a 5 minute walk to the left. We met the gentleman at the...

We love to go there, it's like a second home. Small, friendly and a great place. Makes diving in the beautiful waters so easy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Can get a dive trip set up right there on the property.
