Sorry this is overdue! We stayed there last year with our two daughters. This is a great place for us to stay. As a matter of fact we are staying there again next month! This will actually be my wife and I's 7th trip to Cozumel and 3rd stay at the El Cid.
The check in was smooth as can be. We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite which included 2 full bathrooms and a kitchenette. We are staying in the same thing this time. We poted for the all inclusive last time and it worked out well for us. But this time the all -inclusive was a little too high for us, so we'll be stocking up at the grocery store. The restuarant was fine for us. We always found something to eat, and my step-daughter and myself are pretty picky. The hotel staff were friendly and treated us very well!
The maid always took care of the room and we always tip the houes keeper for doing such a good job. The beach is basically a coral beach, but has great snorkeling. We when we stayed there it was not really ever overran by cruise ship tourists. We never got stopped by the timeshare people which we really liked. I feel if we are interested we will approach them and not vise versa.
Definitely rent a car to see the island. Taxi's can definitely add up. We love the beaches on the East side, and down around Punta Sur...
Can't wait to get back down there! I'll write another review once this trip is over and not wait so long!
