We stayed at El Cid Granada in April 2016. I can confirm that you may use all of the facilities at the two El Cid properties across the road but not the Marina. The Granada is not ocean front, but the other 2 are. There are lights to cross the street, or you can use the pedestrian bridge above. It is a very short walk. The Granada is a wonderful little place with amazing staff, but don't expect anything fancy. The pool is small, but not crowded. Only one restaurant/bar on site that closes at 5-ish to get ready for dinner service, but it's right at the pool. We consider ourselves pretty casual people, and prefer to travel simply. This trip was among our favorites, and the service exceeded all expectations. We can't wait to go back!
