El Cid is a solid all-inclusive resort, especially if you’re got kids in tow. The beach is nice (bring water shoes—there are rocks), the main pool has a faux rock outcropping with waterslides and ‘caves’ that are fun for imaginary play (there’s also an adult-only pool which is perfect for just relaxing), and there are lots of options for food—2 buffets and 3 ‘reservations-only’ restaurants; the seafood restaurant on the marina is my favorite. The rooms themselves are relatively modern; they’re starting to show a bit of age—the marble bathrooms could use an overhaul, for instance—but are very comfortable. The best thing about the place may be its marina, which makes ocean excursions—snorkeling, diving, fishing, sunset tours, etc.—all the more easy to do. All in all, I think this is a good middle of the road option.Recommended for:

El Cid doesn’t have the pizazz of some resorts, but it’s still one of my favorites in this neck of the woods. It’s a relatively small resort—I really get tired of those giant ones—but still manages to appeal to a variety of travelers. It’s probably best as a family resort, with a main pool that makes kids’ eyes bug out the first time they see it. (For starters, there’s a huge faux-rock formation on one side, complete with waterfalls and tunnels.) But I was there sans kids and had a great time: there’s an adults-only pool and plenty of beach space to call your own. Perhaps more importantly, for people like me who like to explore off-resort, there’s a lot to do within easy reach, including cenotes and Maya ruins, and of course Cancun, Playa and Cozumel. The town of Puerto Morelos is great too, with excellent snorkeling and surprisingly high-quality restaurants.Recommended for:
