El Cid Resorts - Reviews


“This was our best vacation ever. We love this hotel. The food was fantastic. Aaron is the best chef ever. We had breakfast at El Terraza every morning graciously served by Manuel Tosado and Edy. They are the best. We had dinner at the Marina Restaurant and Manuel was fantastic. The Iguana Pool is the place to be. Hector is the best. I can't forget to mention our favorite bellman, Rafael. I adore him. Avi was always there to fulfill our every need and always stay on the 2nd floor by the Iguana Pool. Olivia is the best. She always takes care of us. Thank you for an unforgettable vacation.” @seaway49. January 2022. Portland, Oregon.

“The whole resort is beautiful! We have stayed at the El Cid and Ventus resort 6 times and have never been let down! Every detail is taken care of, and the staff is always amazing! We'd like to give a shout-out to Tomas the beach concierge, Manuel our butler, Jose and Violeta in the platinum Ventus bar, and Bernardo at the platinum beach bar! But all the staff went over and beyond any expectations! We'll be back next year! Big thanks to an awesome vacation!” @jamienancy. February 2022. Little Rock, Arkansas.
