RIVIERA MAYA : VACATION DEALS - MEXICO

Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort

Category: UPSCALE

Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort offers exceptional service and singular attention to detail in a luxury setting promising the perfect vacation escape. Experience breathtaking surroundings, elegantly styled rooms, and world-class cuisine that make for an unforgettable getaway.

The 290-suite, family-friendly Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort is an upscale All-inclusive with a beachfront location.

A generous All-inclusive program (with additional perks for Platinum status) covers all restaurants, top-shelf drinks, and water sports.

Families like the kids' and teens' clubs, daily activities, and nightly entertainment, culinary variety, and elegant Spa with Mayan-focused treatments. Rooms are sleek and modern, equipped with terraces, minibars with free beer and sofa, and marble showers. For an All-inclusive, that doesn't charge extra for Wi-Fi.

Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort has a calm beachfront location just outside of Puerto Morelos. It's about halfway between Cancun and Playa del Carmen and considered to have more authentic restaurants, shopping, and nightlife than either of the two more touristy destinations. It's 30 minutes by car to downtown Cancun, 40 minutes to Playa del Carmen, and 80 minutes to the beachside ruins of Tulum. Cancun International Airport is about a 30-minute drive north.

Beach

 A natural paradise of warm azure waters, soothing breezes, and rare tropical plants bursting with color. The best way to enjoy the beach is to upgrade to Platinum status, which allows guests to reserve a beach palapa and have a guaranteed place to relax. 

Accommodations

Exceptionally clean, contemporary suites with outdoor spaces

Rooms are modern and contemporary, all done in the same style consisting of beige tile floors, dark-wood furniture, and pops of purple and blue in bedding and loveseats. Beach-themed artwork adds some character, but the overall look is simple. Furnished outdoor spaces come standard, and views are either of the garden or ocean. Some units have outdoor hot tubs. Also provided are minibars with free beer, water, and soda, air-conditioning, flat-screen Vs, coffeemakers, and sitting areas with tables. Marble bathrooms have an open-plan design with dual sinks, walk-in showers with adjustable showerheads, hairdryers, and quality toiletries.

Spacious entry-level Junior Suites have a king bed and queen Murphy bed, while Family Rooms have the same layout and design but swap out the king-sized bed for two doubles. The Platinum-status Luxury rooms nix the Murphy beds and add either separate living rooms, extra bathrooms, and/or additional balconies. Two- and three-bedroom suites are also available.
