    Enjoyed our stay at the El Cid marina. We took their free shuttle to El Cid El Moro and found it was much busier and louder with a younger clientele. The El Cid Marina has two pools (one heated nicely) with great music (boomer era & not too loud). They use a water taxi to take you to the beach club on the other side of the narrow inlet. Do use this and go over to the beach. It is not busy and is a great beach for walking. They have towel service and restaurant/bar so you can spend the day and the water taxi just takes a minute or two to get across.

    Wonderful facility with very relaxed atmosphere. Food is excellent and has a great presentation with attentive staff. The variety at the pools is also a plus, with one heated, which was especially nice since the weather was a bit cool.

    Beautiful!

    The buildings at the Marina are arranged like a little village, different colors, different balconies, some tall, some small, all surrounded by gardens of hisbiscous and green lawns and a Marina. The rooms are large and airy- white tile floors and marine blue. The Marina restaurant has excellent food and you can always take a free shuttle bus to other El Cid restaurants. The Marina restaurant has different cuisines every night like Italian night, Mexican night as well as a gourmet menu. There is a gorgeous heated pool with my favorite guy, Dante, in charge of activities and a cool pool, where iguanas wander and you can swim in a grotto! The majority of members are retired couples. It is quiet and peaceful. The clientele seem to be a more well to do crowd than at the other El Cid Hotels. The beach is a 5 minute free ferry ride away. You can walk for miles along this Cerretos beach. Large waves, undertow! Not very swimmable. I must congratulate my sweet camiseras or chambermaids Laura and Olivia who clean building A rooms so so well and are such happy, friendly souls. I love you! I also must single Juan out, who has been the Patio waiter for many years.. He greets us every night and is always so glad to see us and serves us as though we were King & Queen. Marina is a special place ??

    This was our 19th year to visit El Cid Marina - not only is it beautiful the staff is superb. Special shoutout to the bellboys, concierge, dining room staff and housekeeping. They are like family to us. Avi (concierge), Valerio (bell staff), Olivia (housekeeping), Javier (dining room), Fidel (pool capitano)! We love them all and they are the reason we return every year. Every single bellman is super friendly and helpful. This place is like another home to us and we are always sad to leave.

    The service was excellent from all of the staff who seem to stop at nothing to make sure that the guest is happy. We were greeted by grounds keepers and even painters who would stop what they were doing and say hi as you passed by. The food service was excellent and special recognition is due to Felipe & Silvia in the upstairs restaurant. The cooks there too, Lupita & (do not remember name) were entertaining while flipping omelets. This is truly a full service resort that will meet all expectations.
