A few days in paradise

Holly2144 (Auburn Hills, Michigan) on Sep 22, 2021

Where do I begin?!? I loved EVERYTHING about this resort. My husband and I travel several times throughout the year and this was one of the best places we have had the pleasure of staying (and I’m a hotel snob) we are usually not pool people and would rather spend time at the beach, but the pools were so clean, large and inviting, we enjoyed them immensely! Service was top notch and I have never seen a place that was so clean and well maintained! Attention was paid to every little detail! We were never bothered by sales people and the staff members were so friendly and always took the time to greet us and make sure we were pleased with our stay. We always plan a trip in September as resorts are usually less crowded. We didn’t have to wait for anything and most evenings had the pool to ourselves. I would definitely recommend and cannot wait to go again!!

Sit Back and Relax

Ashley201Clark (Austin, Texas) on Sep 22, 2021

Pools, food, and activities for the entire family. My husband I and went there for our honeymoon and man we are glad we choose El Cid. We can't explain how attentive they are. I know people complain about he beach but they have a team cleaning it up everyday. They have room service and unlike the sounding hotels they were open 24/7. Our favorite specialty restaurant was the Italian. We highly recommend it. They have a babysitter groups and they'll watch and play with your kids while you hang out at one of the many pools or sleep. We'll be back with our kid and a few friends.

Perfect family resort

edwardnaughton on Sep 21, 2021

The Hotel Marina El Cid is very clean and spread out so you don't feel cramped. For the family with younger kids it is great they have a kids center to keep them active. The only downfall is there really is no beach like you would think of. I am not a beach person so I didn't mind because the resort had everything.

Save your money.

The hotel staff aside from the front desk was great. They tried to charge my friend for a Covid test when we were told that they would be free at booking. She called days before we arrived and paid for birthday decorations in the room, they charged her card and on the last night brought a small cake and a bottle of champagne. This resort tries to scam you and Nickel & dime you for every single thing. The food also could’ve been a lot better as well, and some of the restaurants are closed, which makes it difficult to make reservations at the few that are open. Also the rooms are very outdated and there was an ant problem.

Great stay

Secluded resort, very clean, quiet, food was exceptional. Covid tests done on site was a nice surprise. We also got engaged here and the staff made a special effort for us. Wouldn't hesitate to come back
