“El Cid Resorts have been accommodating guests for over 40 years across México, and we’re thrilled to introduce our newest property to visitors from around the world,” said Carlos Berdegué, President and CEO of El Cid Resorts. “This stunning resort is an exciting addition to our El Cid portfolio, as it boasts not only breathtaking views and surroundings, but also provides a modern approach and feel to cultural and traditional experiences that will keep visitors returning year-after-year.”

The resort was designed by the team headed by Fernando Berdegué Sacristán, VP of Construction and new product development, providing top-notch expertise in constructing sleek, modern and comfortable concepts and designs. For Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort, the team worked with award-winning design + architects, Ezequiel Farca and Cristina Grappin. Known worldwide for their quality, vision and exceptional craftsmanship, Farca and Grappin’s designs for Ventus are a perfect blend of timeless design and comfortable functionality, as they used natural materials, elegant details and aesthetics, which are key features of the El Cid brand.

“While building this resort, we had nothing but sophisticated details in mind, as we focused in creating our signature scent, to developing our unique spa treatments, the design of each suite, our gourmet dining options, and our one-of-a-kind adventures and excursions,” Berdegué continued. “As Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort is located next to its sister property, Hotel Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort, our guests are welcome to enjoy both resorts’ amenities, allowing access to each property’s pools, restaurants, bars and more.”
