With arguably the most beautiful beaches in all of Mexico, the Riviera Maya corridor stretches along Mexico's Caribbean coastline and provides a supremely picturesque vacation destination. At the midpoint between Cancun and Playa del Carmen is the town of Puerto Morelos, home to the gorgeous Hotel Marina El Cid Riviera Maya, part of a complex of hotel properties, shopping, luxury housing, and ultra-modern marina.
Here the crystal waters of the Caribbean change from translucent to a mesmerizing aqua as your eyes follow out to the horizon, and the coral white beaches are white, silky and smooth. The Hotel Marina El Cid Riviera Maya takes advantage of these glorious surroundings and provides a hospitality experience that complements this natural setting.
Featuring 342 suites built throughout several low-rise (maximum of 5 floors) villas, the Hotel Marina El Cid offers a mix of colonial and modern architectures, each suite having either ocean, pool, or garden view. The beach is simply spectacular, and the coral reefs lie just off the coast. Hotel facilities include a 22,000 square foot free form pool with an island in the middle that provides waterfalls and water slides for the kids and a swim-up bar. There is an adult area with an oceanfront mega Jacuzzi, cocktail bar, massage hut, and tanning deck overlooking the beach. A water sports facility provides all the gear you need for kayaking, windsurfing, snorkeling, and diving. The latest in fitness center amenities is on-site as well, with aerobics, Pilates, and spinning classes.
The all-inclusive Marina El Cid features Luxury Suites, spacious Junior Suites, One-, Two-, and Three-Bedroom Suites. All accommodations include contemporary décor, tropical colors, king-size or double beds, private terraces, satellite television, safe-deposit boxes, and stocked mini bars. Some suites include kitchenettes.
The hotel restaurants and bars are superb. Mexican, Mediterranean, International, fresh seafood, and local delicacies, are served indoor, al fresco on the terrace, and poolside. Live music is enjoyed in the bar and at Gala functions.
