Just recently I shared with you my thoughts on why El CID Hotel Marina Spa & Beach Resort was my #1 choice for family destinations in Mexico. Last week, I shared with you about my dining experience and today I’ll be sharing how to Rediscover Fun at El CID Hotel Marina Spa & Beach Resort in Puerto Morales, Mexico.
Life with my children can get rather busy. It’s remarkable how much time we lose as parents when the years pass us by. We live a busy lifestyle and with work, school, and other activities in between, it’s so easy to forget how important these precious times are and will be to come.
Vacationing in Mexico for the first time allowed my family and I to reconnect, recharge, rediscover fun and laughter, but most of all, experiencing a new adventure with creating memories that will last a lifetime.
During our stay at El CID Hotel Marina Spa & Beach Resort we loved their nightly entertainment. The first evening, we listened to live Latino music while being entertained by their professional dancers. I honestly caught myself dancing in my seat while watching the show. The music was so upbeat, and energetic! It was a great way to end our first night at this beautiful hotel .
The next night my family and I were so impressed of the fire show. We sat there with our mouths wide open in disbelief. It was amazing to see the entertainment staff spin, flip, and move around the fire. It was also incredible to see how well choreograph their performance show was. -And I will say, they’re all very talented.
El CID Hotel Marina Spa & Beach Resort offers plenty of activities to keep you busy during the day. We didn’t venture too far away from the resort as there were enough fun daily activities going on near the pool and beach areas.
Non-motorized water sports like kayaks and catamaran boats are available for guests to use. Catamaran boats are staff operated although, the kayaks and boogie boards are used at your own risk.
During our stay at Hotel Marina we decided to adventure out and give kayaking a try. Since my family and I were first timers, we couldn’t stop laughing. The sea was rough that day and the waves kept bringing us back to shore. It definitely was a fun experience for the whole family.
Another activity that we enjoyed was walking along the beach. During the day you’ll be surprised what you can see and find. My son found two mini sand crabs and my daughter found a piece of coral that washed ashore.
Near the main pool you’ll find a life sized giant chess set. This outdoor game was so much fun to play with my daughter. The chessmen pieces were huge which made it even more fun to pick up and play.
We really enjoyed our time at El CID Hotel Marina Spa & Beach Resort. Our time there was short but we got to enjoy the resort at our leisure. I think that my children will agree that, our last day there was one to remember. We decided to stay at the main pool since there was a pool party going on that day. Thank goodness we did because it was such a fun party.
My older sons had so much fun dancing poolside , listening to the music and so didn’t my daughter. Heck, we all did. It was one big party. I think the highlight of that day was when I saw both of my sons take part of a mens vs womens dancing belly flop contest.
I honestly couldn’t of been more proud to see them strut their stuff and do their thing around the pool. Everyone was clapping and cheering and guess what? One of my twin sons won the contest. It was so much fun. The pool entertainment staff was the best!
-And the pool party staff didn’t stop there. For the adults there was alcohol shots given out, more dancing, more music and even more interaction with the staff.
My son had an incredible time playing pool wrestling or as we call it- “chicken fight” with other hotel guests and staff members. It was very nice to watch how engaging and friendly their entertainment staff were with hotel guests of all ages. It was remarkable to see all my children smile and enjoy themselves during this wonderful vacation. -And this is exactly how we discovered fun at El CID Hotel Marina Spa & Beach Resort. Beautiful memories that we all can share together.
I would like to take a moment to thank the staff for a wonderful and heartfelt experience we received by visiting El CID Hotel Marina Spa & Beach Resort. Thank you for your hospitality and warm welcome.
