Our first visit to an all-inclusive. Loved the fact it is an all adult resort. The Excellence is beautiful, restaurants are all really good, especially Chez Isabelle and Basmati. Tip, just look at your daily sheet to see which restuarant is closed for the day. We requested a king bed, but got two queens....a day later we switched to a... More

Amazing food, beautiful gardens, pools, beach, incredible spa. We visited excellence for 4 days on our honeymoon. Given the remote location, we felt 4 days here was enough and opted to transfer to a hotel in the heart of playa del carmen for the remainder of our honeymoon. Definitely book a trip to the spa while you are there, even... More

For 20 years, our vacation times have centered around visiting family, or traveling for our kids' sports. I wanted a perfect anniversary trip and chose Excellence riviera maya through trip advisor. It did not disappoint!! The resort was beautiful and the staff could not have been more friendly. We felt like we had truly escaped our regular routine for the... More

Just got back from an 8 day vacation at the ERC on 8/27/14 and here is my report. This is a tough review to write because I feel if this was my first time at an all-inclusive that I would be raving about the ERC saying it was a 10 out 10 in my review. But I feel as though... More

We got to the hotel a little early so we did have wait until the room was ready. The hotel took our bags so we could walk around the resort and have lunch. We did get into our room 45 minutes prior to the check-in time so that was great. The hotel and the grounds are breath taking!! We had... More

I went here last year and it was amazing. After recently going to the Marina El Cid in Puerto Morales, it paled in comparison to the Excellence. As soon as me and my fiance arrived at the El Cid, we knew we made a mistake not coming back here. This was our best vacation, everything about this place was top... More

The most difficult decision every day was ,beach or pool,and which of the 9 different restaurants we would visit that evening A truly luxurious resort where you are treated as honoured guests from...

Just returned from our second visit to ERC. Although our 4th visit to Cancun, this was the first time we had returned somewhere which goes a long way to confirming the absolute "excellence" of this resort. Rooms,restaurants,bars continue to be "top notch" although we did feel the entertainment in the main theatre could do with a facelift. We spent a... More
