My husband and me first had a reservation with a dive resort, but since they had some electrical difficulties, they booked us with Elcid. When we got there, we got offered a drink and people on front desk were pretty nice, friendly and helpful. Even once I had a problem with my ear, they helped me , even called the hospital and talked to them since we can't speak Spanish at all. The room was clean and we had an ocean view but we were on a floor which trees kind of blocked the view. Still I have no complains. The place has a lovely pool area and hot tub with an amazing ocean view next to a bar. From inside the hot tub you can order and receive your drinks. They also have a happy hour which 2 for one drinks are served. My favorite drink there was Mojitos . The bar staff were real cool and laid back . They even helped us to find a lovely salsa club in downtown. But the food quality is not that great and it is a little bit overpriced.
The hotel also had a man-made beach. It is cute and tiny and has an isolated area from ocean which is shallow and made by rocks.It also is next to a rock fountain and has an ocean view.
We still did scuba diving with the other hotel dive shop. So I don't really know anything about the dive shop.
Overall it was such a blast and I loved the place.
