My wife and I spent a week at El Cid La Ceiba Beach Hotel in mid July 2014. The Hotel is half Timeshare and half hotel. This Hotel is older but well maintained. The staff is polite and helpful.
We thought that it would be easier to bring luggage up and down from the room if the elevator were larger. The pool is dark bottom absorbing heat making the pool too warm to be refreshing in summer. The restaurant at the facility is not inexpensive, but the food is very good. Of course there is an All- Inclusive option where you pay a daily rate and eat to your hearts content. We did a Time- Share presentation, and while they did not humiliate us for being disinclined to purchase, these presentations are tedious. You may just avoid the trial altogether. However we did get a couple of nice perks for the trouble. We got a cheap four day scooter rental! The scooter immediately paid for itself (Cabs are very expensive in Cozumel). We went all over on ours- to restaurants, snorkeling beaches, the Mega Market ( a Super Wall Mart type store in town), etc ( I must recommend the Money Bar Restaurant to the south of town. Good Food, wonderful beach and snorkeling and a FREE SHOWER). I would recommend a multi-day scooter rental to anyone visiting Cozumel. The Hotel has a wonderful beach and direct access to the ocean. As you probably know the water is warm and the visibility incomparable. This is why you come to Cozumel in the first place! La Ceiba Beach is a wonderful access point for all of the aquatic activities in Cozumel ( SCUBA, Snorkeling, Cruising). Many Cruise Ships came and went during our stay at El Cid. They park at two piers just south of this resort. Linda and I were very entertained by the coming and going of the cruise tourists and all the support boats that serviced them during their stay in port. All in all we had a great stay at El Cid La Ceiba Beach Hotel, and we will come again to this establishment.
