Pools & Spas

Spa El Cocay
The unique, El Cocay Spa takes its inspiration from the firefly. According to Maya legend, el cocay, or the firefly, saw a spark of light that illuminated its path to the green healing stone. A beloved healer, who cured through the powers of thought, word and touch, had lost the precious stone.

The beachfront, 13,000 square-foot El Cocay Spa restores the ancient traditions, rejuvenating guests through a balance of mind, body and spirit. Here, guests take in calming views of the Caribbean Sea, while indulging in traditional healing remedies and massage techniques based on Maya legends.

Specially trained therapists select herbs, fruits, seeds, flowers and other natural ingredients for oils and lotions that foster a lingering sense of peace and wellbeing.

Among El Cocay`s one-of-a-kind treatments are the revitalizing Baateel Eagle Warrior Massage and the Tsaak Therapeutic Massage.  For total rejuvenation, guests also opt for the 80-minute, four-hand Kukulkan Body Massage in a private, beachfront Palapa hut.

No Maya spa would be complete without the traditional Temazcal, the ancient steam treatment to purify body and spirit under the guidance of a Chamn. This specially   trained professional combines therapeutic, steamed waters with warm stones and a blend of aromas, herbs and teas to soothe and renew.

Other spa amenities include:

  • Hydrotherapy facilities
  • Meditation areas
  • Massage cabins
  • A Temazcal, the pre-Hispanic steam cabana
  • Steam room
  • Sauna
  • Yoga and tai-chi instruction
  • Hair and nail salon

The platinum club was definitely worth it with all top shelf liquors, yummy snacks and computers to use; having personal check in and out was very nice too. The staff couldn't have been more ...

After hearing amazing things about Mexico I started looking through hotels and settled on Marina El Cid due to a couple reasons. I purposely paid extra for platinum because it said internet access (assuming that it would be wifi) because I had important emails that I knew I would have to reply too. Included in platinum was a scale (for weighting baggage) along with fruit and wine upon arriving and a butler. Last week we set off for our trip and landed around midnight excited for our week.

The resort beach was awful filled with decaying smelly seaweed. The smell actually can make you gag. There wasn't a soul in the water. The staff were nice however they spend more time trying to get you to buy a vacation rental than give you the quality experience you already paid for. A big joke!!! The food was just ok. The reservation restaurants was just their buffet food on a shiny plate. They have you make reservations and no one is in the restaurants. It's almost impossible to get a reserva... Read more

I do all my research when it comes to spending the money we do on a vacation. They can dress up any pictures and videos to make the place look like a 5 star. Some of our concerns going in came from other negative reviews - bugs, rocky beach, rooms, and food. Which to us was almost everything. We took a chance because those poor review were few and far between. And let me tell you - they were WAY wrong. We loved every minute of the vacation. FOOD - outstanding. Yes there were things we d... Read more

I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the resort - the amazing mexican adobe-type walls and beautiful colors everywhere! There was original artwork on our walls.

Different preparation, different seasonings - just different. but perhaps that is to be expected when you travel to another country??

This was my second visit to Puerto Morales, but first time staying at Marina El Cid. I went with my husband and five teenage kids. Overall, it was a very nice resort. Upon arrival we noticed a smamp-like smell and our room was a little lack luster. We requested to move to the newer buildings that were just constructed one month ago. We were moved into a beautiful three bedroom suite with all the bells and whistles, ocean front view. The staff was always very friendly and helpful. The food was wo... Read more
