A recently completed expansion provides all-inclusive getaway at the Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort.

Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort in Mexico's Riviera Maya announces the opening of 150 new suites, a gourmet restaurant, Maya-inspired spa, and beachfront bar, all part of the resort's $50-million expansion completed in Dec.

Located 15 minutes from the Cancun International Airport and chic shops and restaurants of Playa del Carmen, Hotel Marina El Cid provides an all-inclusive, all-suite resort experience. The property is set along 1,969 feet of the Mexican Caribbean beachfront. Its low-rise buildings surround a magnificent, 22,000 square-foot freeform pool.

Like the entire resort, new junior suites mix Mexican Colonial and contemporary architectural design. Sliding glass doors open onto a private terrace with Jacuzzi overlooking tropical gardens or the Caribbean Sea. Luxurious one- two- and three-bedroom suites are offered to visitors, as well.

The resort's Kid's Club provides such supervised activities daily as snorkeling lessons, Spanish and Mexican cooking classes, games and more. The teen program features windsurfing lessons, kayaking tours and bike trips to Puerto Morelos, a charming village home to artisans selling handmade goods at local markets.

Four restaurants at the Marina Hotel El Cid offer an array of culinary options, from casual to gourmet cuisine. The newly expanded Hacienda Arrecife features fine Mexican fare accompanied by a selection of more than 100 different tequilas. Outdoors, guests linger in the new Scaramanga Moon & Beach Lounge, enjoying cocktails, carpaccios, ocean breezes, and live music. Options also exist for romantic dinners, special occasions, as well as sunset meals overlooking the clear, turquoise waters of Puerto Morelos Bay.

For a luxurious treat, the new El Cocay Spa specializes in treatments based on ancient Maya legends. The 13,000 square-foot facility features a unique Temazcal Sacred Bath, inviting guests to relax and rejuvenate with the gentle chant of drums, flute melodies, cleansing steam and soothing aromas. The spa also houses a nail and hair salon, hydrotherapy area, fitness center, and boutique showcasing crafts and artwork by local Maya tribes.
