There is even snorkel gear included to enjoy some of the fabulous snorkeling from shore that Cozumel Island is known to for-see the sunken plane that was a movie prop and now home for numerous tropical fish.

You will not go hungry or thirsty. Your El Cid Resort Day Package in paradise comes with all you can eat buffet on most days as well as order off the menu...whatever you want, as much as you want (except lobster). See below for examples of food items (subject to chef's daily decision). There is also an open national bar where you can choose all you want to drink.

Our best trip to Cozumel
     5/5 Visited May 2014
This was our 5th trip to Cozumel and by far our favorite. El Cid was so easy to get to - about a 5 minute walk from cruise dock. Everything was so clean and beautiful. Quiet day, only about 20 people there. Staff was kind and helpful, food and drinks were great. Snorkeling was fantastic! So many fish it was like being in an aquarium. We will be cruising with friends in March 2015 and plan to bring them along for this day of fun and relaxation.

Great resort!
     5/5 Visited May 2014
The El Cid came recommended from one of the ship's crew members, as we did not want to spend time and money on taxis to go to a beach resort. It is just a 5 minute walk from the Carnival pier so there is no need for those overpriced taxis. The resort itself is nice and not too big. Great swimming pool and snorkeling is just off the premises. Food and drinks were great, all in all we had a wonderful time.

El Cid
     2/5 Visited October 2017
We booked a day at El Cid while our cruise ship was docked in Cozumel. After booking we received our tickets via email. As stated print OR download the tickets to the app. So I downloaded to the app. Upon check in the desk clerk asked for the tickets and I showed them to her on the app. She said she could not accept that they need to be printed. For a half an hour both the desk clerk and the Manager would not let us enjoy the property. Finally they said we could email the tickets. So we tried that. Still did not work. A few minutes later another manager came over and said the desk clerk could have just used the confirmation number that was on the app.

VERY close to ship
     3/5 Visited September 2017
We departed the Royal Caribbean Oasis of the sea on Friday and it was truly a 3-5 minute walk to the resort. The picture of how close the ship is in the picture is accurate. We had our printed confirmation so getting checked in and getting our bracelets was a breeze. We were early enough for breakfast which was a limited buffet. You can get French Toast or eggs made to order but YOU have to ask. After breakfast we got two chairs two rows from the beach under a straw hut cover. Service was almost nonexistent. I went to the bar and got drinks myself (no big deal). I found out they have additional food available at no-charge. It is printed on wooden surfboards. Jose came around and we ordered another round of drinks. The day people do not get the premium liquor bottles but drinks were fine. We ordered guacamole and chips along with chicken tacos and they were both delicious. Hint: Get waiter and give a dollar or two when food and drinks are delivered. Service will improve dramatically. They include a 90 minute free rental of complete snorkel gear. Take advantage of it. I saw many beautiful fish just off the beach. Pool, hot tub, and beach are great. Drinks are fine. The best feature for this resort is the ease of access from the ship.

Good but...buyer be ware!
     4/5 Visited May 2017
I am giving this four stars because we would do this again. However, depending on why you are booking this excursion you may be disappointed. Pros: Walked off the boat, took a left and El Cid was right there. The Menu they provided for the all inclusive was very diverse and the food was absolutely phenomenal. (Nachos, Guacamole Starter, Enchiladas, Fajitas (Chicken had more meat, beef was very limited on amount of meat included). Food was very good and something for everyone on the menu not just Mexican cuisine. Snorkeling was great and the booking includes 90 minutes of snorkeling. Beautiful fish. Wifi worked very well (had a teenager who thought this was very important) Locker could be rented for 8.00 to secure your valuables. Cons: While beverages are included there is a separate menu for day pass guests. We spoke with guests who were staying at the El Cid and they said their drinks were great. (Two different color wrist bands). Our complaint doesn't concern the amount of alcohol in the drinks so if you don't care how the drinks tastes don't worry about it. However, bloody mary, pina colada, margarita, and rum punch were all very watered down tasting. Not a much flavor to any of these drinks. But when my husband ordered vodka/orange juice with his meal and the quality of the drink was much better. The bartenders at the bar/restaurant are very rude and show no courtesy to day pass guests. *****So basically we would rate the drinks and bar service a "2" but the overall day pass and restaurant/server was a four because of the other Pros.

We arrived early enough for both the breakfast and lunch buffets! They were beyond delicious! The snorkling was excellent though it's not really a beach but stairs into the water. The water was so clear and nice we didn't even go in the pool or hot tub. Drinks were excellent also. Can't wait to go back. A short walk from the cruise ship and no taxi!

Great Time at a Great Price
     5/5 Visited September 2015
We visited this resort on September 23, 2015 while on a cruise. The reason we chose El Cid was due to the close proximity to the Cruise Pier. When we arrived, we were welcomed by Maria at the Front Desk. We were given beach towels and a wifi code. Then we proceeded out to the resort grounds and found a nice spot near the water to relax. A waiter immediately took our drink order and kept the drinks coming. All food and beverages are included in the price. Snorkel Gear is also included. The snorkeling was amazing. All of the staff were very professional and polite. The resort is very laid back and comfortable. We will definitely return to this resort on future cruises and we may even book a future trip here. The price on ShoreExcursioneer was quite a bit better than it was on Resortforaday so I would suggest booking through ShoreExcursioneer. I can't wait to visit again next year.

Awesome place, especially if you've already been to Mexico before and you just want to relax. The food was delicious, drinks were ok, you were limited to the type of alcohol and mixers. I'm not a fruity drinker but I improvised. We had a great time near the beach. We could see our cruise line and it was easy to get to. (.3 mile) from the port. Perfect!

We really loved spending the day at El Cid. It was the perfect size to keep an eye our children and not overrun with people. Our youngest was included for free and that was certainly appreciated on a vacation budget. Our service was excellent and our waiter never let us get thirsty. Though we will likely vacation in other places next year, we are giving El Cid 5 stars.

Relaxed and satisfied at El Cid.....
     4/5 Visited February 2014
Our day at El Cid was just the best. It was the perfect place to spend the day. We got sun when we wanted it and shade when we needed it. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. The beach area is very small, but we liked that. There was easy access to the water for snorkeling and the best part was that it was so close to the port for us, that we could walk. The photos on this website are very true to life too. I do want to mention how welcoming the staff was to us. The gentleman at the front desk who checked us in, the poolside waiter we had and even the doorman were just genuinely warm and friendly. We did not feel like intruders at all as we have felt at some other AI resorts we have purchased day passes for. Thank you El Cid and Cozumel Watersports.

The best we could have done
     5/5 Visited January 2014
This was our first time to Mexico and our first cruise. Since we were traveling with a couple small kids, we were just a little hesitant to do taxis with them (we did not have their car seats). We had really wanted a beach day and had been dealing with another online agency. They told us the resorts they had needed taxi travel. But someone recommended this site and we called. El Cid and their day pass package was the answer! It was close enough that we did not have to take a taxi. When we got to the resort, we were not disappointed. The property was even better than the photos. Great waiters, good quality food and excellent selection of drinks. We even got to do some snorkeling and saw the sunken airplane right off of the shore. Very fun for the kids. Thank you!
