The recently renovated El Cid La Ceiba Beach Hotel is on the south side of Cozumel, just three miles from downtown San Miguel. Though cruise ships pepper the aqua horizon, the hotel is in the center of lush jungle and hosts the Babieca Dive Center on site, which leads supervised excursions to the most beautiful cave and cavern (“cenote”) diving in the world -- coral reefs, too. Fly High Adventures Eco-Park is the hotel’s new eco-park featuring six zip line platforms and six rugged trails, surrounded by jungle. A Mayan-influenced spa has a four-page menu of treatments which also are enjoyed beachside, if one prefers.
Dining
Get romantic at the upscale La Chopa Restaurant, and browse their cultivated wine list or sip a classic pina colada. Trattoria Da Salvatore serves crisp, sizzling brick-oven pizzas. Two plasma TVs provide entertainment at the El Cid La Ceiba Beach Hotel’s La Chopa Oceanfront Bar, and a swim-up bar is adjacent to the Jacuzzi.
Rooms
Rich wood and geometric modern art give the 60, recently renovated guest rooms and suites of the El Cid La Ceiba Beach Hotel an elegant touch. Choose from a studio room with a double bed and space-saving Murphy queen bed (or a king bed and sleeper sofa) and fully equipped kitchenette, or a one-bedroom suite which also has two beds -- one of which being the disappearing Murphy bed.

Regardless of room type, all guests rooms have individual climate control, ceiling fan, coffee maker, in-room safe, private balcony or terrace, satellite TV, an iron and ironing board and radio alarm clock.

Great Trip to Unwind

El Cid's staff is very friendly, and are very busy when the cruise ships are in. Not a lot of variety for dinning, but you can't beat lunch on the beach. Room was great, as well as room service. I will definitely go back.

Family Trip

First time to Cozumel. Enjoyed it. The hotel is small which we like. We did the AI as we had kids with us. It worked great for us. Disappointed that the bar closed at 10pm every night.

Good not great

Overall the experience was good. One issue is different levels of all inclusive that wasn't clear/disclosed. Room was clean. Staff hit and miss. Food selection and quality okay. Right by pier where cruise ships dock, so if everything that goes with that is an issue for you probably best to look elsewhere.

Great facilities and location

Though it is opposite where the cruise ships come in, so loads of people visit the island every day, it's fun watching the massive ships arrive and depart.

Dive trip with friends

The dive shop employees were very helpful. The pool area music was horrible. I am open to almost all music but after 2 or 3 hours of "thump thump" music you would think that the Dj would look around and see that most people were not enjoying his selections. Could we mix it up a little bit? The hotel needs a major update, the elevators were small and very slow.

Nice Hotel Good Location

Had a great week at the El Cid. The only con was the close proximity to the cruise line terminal. Staff was freindly and courteous. Room was clean and comfortable with great ocean views. Around the pool and sand area the servic was excellent. We did not buy the all-inclusive because there are too many inexpensive geat restuarants in town (La Choza, Ernesto's, El Foco). We ate one breakfast at La Chopa and found it typical hotel food. Juan Carlos at the onsite dive shop was aweseone, helping with all dive needs and equipment repair. Overall, the El Cid is a great hotel for the price and location.
