Prior to this trip in July 2022, my wife and I have stayed in several hotels in Cancun such as moon palace, riu, gr solaris, omni and others that I can’t recall at this time. However, THIS hotel swept me off my feet. This hotel really focuses on pleasing every customer when it comes to entertainment. For me my big thing is music, and with all due respect to other folks, my experiences in the previous hotels mentioned is that when it comes to music, these hotels only seemed to please the white folks. At this hotel El Cid I love the fact that they aimed to please everyone when it came to playing music of all genres (Awesome start ) The pools are huge and have different types (party type, relax type etc) Again, aiming to please all needs of all kinds. The only downside I didn't like is that there were not enough pool chairs and or tables around the pool area, but had so much fun at the pool that I overlooked this minor thing. The drinks at the pool are excellent, no water down drinks or any of the kind. Got to love the fact that there's a restaurant right behind the pool which makes it great 4 lunch/snack. The quality of the food is awesome. Dolores restaurant has the BEST variety of all type of foods you can think of. The staff is extremely attentive and always have a yes sir yes madam how can I serve you better attitude. I really have no complaints about this hotel. Went for 5 nights and stayed an extra 1 just for the Mariachi show ! Definitely will go back !!!!
