Resort Profile

Adjacent to the Marina Cid, where water sports abound, the economical, all-inclusive Hotel Marina El Cid in Puerto Morelos caters well to both families and couples. The beach is on the narrow side (especially for the Riviera Maya; this has a negative effect on the Overall Beach Resort Rating) and the food gets mixed reviews; but the resort offers a 22,000-square-foot swimming pool with waterfalls and slides, a separate infinity pool, live music and fire shows, rooms with large furnished balconies, a beachside bar with swing seats, an adults-only whirlpool and jacuzzi bar, a strong fitness center with a variety of classes (yoga, spin, Pilates, tai chi, tae-bo, and cardio salsa), and a 13,000-square-foot Mayan-inspired spa with locally traditional treatments. The Platinum All-Inclusive Plan includes extra perks such as butler service, premium beds and linens, welcome fruit baskets and wine bottles, reservation of palapa huts on the beach, access to the Platinum Club lounge, and beach bags and umbrellas. Water sports on-site and at the marina next door include scuba diving, deep sea fishing, kayaking, windsurfing, Hobie Cat sailing, and snorkeling tours. Other activities include cooking classes, bike tours, and games for kids at the kids club.

Guests returning to the United States are eligible for complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests prior to departure (two tests per room, minimum three night stay required). Testing is done on-site.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
