We have an amazing time at Excellence Playa Murjeres in September 2021 for our 20th anniversary. We stayed in an EC swim up in building 7 and it could not have been a more perfect spot. Service to the pool and EC beach was great, especially Yessica at EC beach. Food was good and our favorites were Spice, Basmati and Agave. Went to Spice twice and both times were amazing! Great service and food. We did a vow renewal and the coordinator, Rubi, was professional, sweet and organized. We were so happy with it. We had a fun time listening to the bands at the main pool. At EPM, you can have quiet time or be social. It’s a great mix. The gym was nice and the trainer in the gym was very helpful. We only went to one show, Michael Jackson and it was a fun tribute. The turndown service is an extra special touch. Ahhh take me back!! Overall we enjoyed our time immensely!

Hotel's Favorite
This was our 12'th trip to Excellence Playa Mujeres and it was another memorable trip. We saw some guests there we had met on pervious trips and met some new ones. we certainly missed talking to friends from Canada and the UK. The hotel was at 60% occupancy because of government regulation although they could easily have been sold out. Employees are very Covid conscious and wore masks and keep things clean and sanitized. We met the new guest services manager Andrea Ruiz on our arrival by chance and she is a fantastic addition to the team there. Velma the Excellence Club Manager is on top of her game. There are so many great employees there like Jacquilin. Mara at The Grill and of course our waiter Fredy Perez made our lunch memorable the first day back. Gloria the dinner hostess at Magna, Victor and the manager and Angel the waiter made our 3 meals there memorable. Jose Mgr. at the Lobster House for breakfast and lunch along with waiters Yobany & Maguel are truly exceptional at their jobs and go out of their way to make eating a meal there memorable! Eric at the Excellence Beach is one of the best and could train anyone at any company in customer service. My wife and I have already made reservations for a return trip in November. When you find this kind of service and quality accommodations and food why chance going elsewhere. We have in the past and every time compared it to here because the standard is so high! Its the employees of the hotel who make you want to come back to experience Excellence again and again!

Went to Excellence in September for our honeymoon. Fantastic food and service, staff went above and beyond to cater to my food allergies (gluten and dairy) at every establishment. Special shout out to the events team that works their but off especially Isabelle! She is the life of the party. Every morning we went to Tuscana for the buffet breakfast and were greeted by Tonutiuh, where he put flowers on the table and made sure we had everything we needed. He’s the man! Additionally, throughout the week, we sat in several spots on the property, being served by Heiydi, Hugo, and Moses (beach). If you can have one of them, they will make sure you are set up for the day with drinks and even food. Speaking of food, the Snacks at Las Olas are a must have - pork tacos every day! Lastly we took a trip to the spa and had an amazing couples massage experience with Ignacia and Ingrid. Best massage I’ve ever had, better than anything that I’ve gotten in the United States. Overall, super happy and will be returning again.

Beautiful resort with excellent service! We stay in building 9, Excellence Club and loved the privacy! The entire staff made this vacation top notch. Our favorite server/assistant was Jose and Luis at Tuscana and every morning they greeted us and treated us like royalty. On our last day, they had a cake made for us and it say please come back soon. I will be going back strictly because of men like them!!!!
