We are going on a 4 day quickie for my daughter's 18th in Dec. to Baja. Now , I know that the weather may not be great for swimming but does the El Cid have a heated pool and how much do they charge to use their facilities? Do they have any beach front? We will be on the Paradise, anyone done that particular ship?
The El Cid is not beach front, and the pool is just so-so. (I stayed there before). However, the restaurant has an incredible lunch. Just recommended it on the Mexico board. For $16, it's called the Mexican Fiesta for 2, but it easily feeds 3. Two enchiladas mole, two huge chile rellenos, two steaks with tomatillo sauce, rice, beans, and a hefty serving of guacamole.
Here is a link to an article I penned about what to do in Ensenada ... hope it helps.
