Orlando, Florida, October 18, 2017 – (INTUITION) El Cid Vacations Club, the membership-based division of El Cid Resorts has been honored once again by RCI, the leader in vacation exchange, at their 2017 Awards ceremony.

This year five resorts from the El Cid Vacations Club received both the highly acclaimed Gold Crown and Excellence in Service awards.

Established in 1974, RCI is the largest timeshare exchange business in the world with over 4,300 affiliated properties globally. Although RCI gives out several awards, the Gold Crown award is the company’s highest distinction. With approximately only a quarter of RCI affiliated resorts holding Gold Crown status, attaining this award ranks the recipient resorts amongst the best available within the RCI network.

In order for El Cid Vacations Club to receive these coveted distinctions, each of their properties needed to maintain an exceptionally high level of excellence in hospitality, accommodations, and member experience. They also needed to have a proven track record with customer satisfaction through positive RCI Member Comment Card ratings. RCI’s Excellence in Service award is given to only three-percent of RCI properties worldwide, and is an additional distinction for Gold Crown resorts who go above and beyond for their guests.

El Cid Resorts & El Cid Vacations Club are proud to continue the tradition of maintaining RCI’s top honors.

“Receiving the Gold Crown Award is very nice and we welcome it but that only places a resort in the top 25%. Having ALL of our resorts earn the Gold Crown status is a much bigger milestone to achieve. And, then combining it with the Excellence in Service Recognition at all El Cid Resorts is truly remarkable. We are very proud to have been honored in this way by RCI.” Stated Curtis Knipe, Director of El Cid Vacations Club.

Since 1972, El Cid has provided guests and vacation club members the opportunity to experience three distinctive Mexican locales at their many resorts. Guests who stay at any one of El Cid’s luxury resorts in Mazatlán, Riviera Maya, or Cozumel can expect to enjoy impeccable service, a wealth of amenities, and breathtakingly beautiful ocean and beachfront views.

Also known for their world-class golf courses, spas, and dining options, El Cid pulls from its 45 years in hospitality to deliver exceptional vacation experiences, blending luxurious accommodations with the rich culture of Mexico.

El Cid Vacations Club properties currently top the charts on TripAdvisor.com for hotels in Mazatlán, holding the number one position (as of October 12, 2017) with three others also in the top ten; in addition to many other TripAdvisor awards and accolades.
