The Excellence Playa Mujeras was a great resort. Awesome for a couple. No kids, all inclusive. Great food and drinks. Crappy Ocean.

I traveled with my husband to the Excellence Playa Mujeres in Feb. 2010. We had a wonderful time. Arrival/Airport: When we arrived at the airport in Mexico we waited for an hour at immigration, got our bags and then waited about 15 min. at customs. When you walk through the airport there are many people asking if you'd like a... More

Other than that we have stayed at other 5* resorts in the Carribean and Maldives. We had a fantastic holiday - really relaxing and we felt totally looked... More

This place was 10x better than anticipated. Service level, Amenities, Food Quality and diversity, Numerous Bars, landscaping, activities and wait staff were all top notch and Cloister-esque. Isolated from what u think is "Cancun".

After reading the reviews, my partner and I decided to take a chance on Playa Mujeres. While the majority of the reviews we read were positive, we chose to overlook some of the not so flattering comments that other travelers had provided. Big mistake! Just because someone post comments about their experience that are not positive, does not make him/her... More

Me and the hubby just returned from this gorgeous place. We are in our mid 20's and when we go on trips we look for stylish, relaxing and romantic locations with a touch of entertainment whether it be shows or water activities and such. This resort served all of those needs and exceeded them! Arrival/Check-in: We booked the private transfer... More

There wasn't one bad thing that I could say about our stay. The rooms were lovely .I especially liked the couch in the room. The food was exceptional... I am still working on getting the pounds off. The staff was great. We had 12 fabulous days of sun.surf and relaxation !

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. My spouse and I were looking forward to a nice, relaxing, short winter break at Excellence Playa Mujeres -- one that we paid a premium for -- and we got everything but that. Couldn't wait to get back to NYC. We paid $140 upfront (return car trip fare) -- resort requests cash only -- to pay a... More

The restaurants were, for the most part, good. The staff was incredible. The beach wasn't great, but not too bad either. We went on our honeymoon and couldn't have asked for anything nicer.
