First, shout outs to the employees that made it an amazing vacation. Zuri from concierge took care of anything and everything that came up from flowers to working on the awful smell we had each morning in the room. Vargas seem to follow us around everyone to make sure we had ample towels and water at all times. Moises was so prompt with our drink orders. He never slowed down the entire day. Erik was also super attentive poolside. We had three massages and the best masseuses were absolutely Susana and Deisy. If you get to visit the Excellence Club Bar, Jorge is just great and my favorite the whole trip. He knows his stuff. Maribel was sweet to work with on our vow renewal. As for the food, our favorite was Magna and Flavor Market. Basmati was surprisingly great. Agave left us very disappointed. The service was poorest here (slow and we were told they were out of things or couldn’t get them for us). An example was we asked for butter. The server said “we don’t use that in this restaurant.” Then he later said “I can get it for you from another restaurant but it will take a while.” So they try and we appreciated it. But Agave was our worst service and the food was poor compared to our other experiences. Our least favorite aspect of the entire experience was the temperatures in the restaurants. Our room was set on 70 and it was an oasis to get back to our room. Sweating and eating at the same time is terribly unpleasant. We are thin people who love the heat when enjoying the pool or ocean. But when dinner comes around, turn the air conditioner to cool the place a little better. The rooftop plunge pool was brilliant. The room was first rate other than an odd smell we got. Our concierge thinks it could just be the seaweed smell but it was bad. The EPM solution was brilliant, they just flooded our room with amazing aromas each morning to counter it. Loved it! Anything we wanted and asked for with our room, we got, including special drinks in the room, flowers for a bouquet, a fan, extra ice. We had dinner on the beach which was fantastic until it rained. They moved us to the porch outside Toscana which was still lovely but no saxophonist there. The photos were pretty much not worth it. We did a vow renewal and it was a highlight of the week and totally worth it. The minister was fantastic. Carlos did an unbelievably great job with the photos and we bought every photo he took. Thanks again Maribel for getting our music we requested. Sorry we missed the chocolate heart cake. Maybe the rain affected that plan. The people of excellence make it special and they are the reason we will be returning. We will pick a cooler time of year though so we can enjoy eating in the lovely restaurants. Service-5 plus stars Food-4 stars (some amazing and some average) Facilities-4 stars (5 for the immaculate grounds but 3 for temperature and 2 for bad smells) Cost- 5 stars (great value for what you get) Drinks- 4 stars (great if you like cocktails or liquor, not so great if you like wine or don’t drink much alcohol, limited diet options, great coffee drinks at Aroma)

Hotel's Favorite
I had a phenomenal time at Excellence three weeks ago. I felt very safe and I so appreciate all the precautions the resort took from the moment my husband and arrived which included sterilizing our suitcase and having a shoe cleaning station. The masks the employees wear was cool as they are clear. Temperature checks are also done and there are partitions between front desk staff and guests. I also liked the fact that the buffet is no longer self serve and hand sanitizers are everywhere as are instructions on proper handwashing . The resort was only at 30 percent capacity so it was very easy to social distance. I'm glad the theater is also partially open and all seats are distanced, so I could still view shows without fearing catching covid in a closed in environment. I really appreciated the upgrade we received to the Excellence Club. The room was so luxurious and the conceriege service on the beach was phenomenal. It's the level of customer service and attention to detail that really makes this resort outstanding. I felt catered to as a vegan and the special meals were beautiful. I'd like to give a special thanks to the staff of the Magna Restaurant, including: Angel and Advel our waiters, Martha our hostess, Chefs, David, Jose, Eli, and Yasmir, the bartender, Jorge and Elaine the manager. The resort is simply beautiful, tranquil and provides the ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation. I highly recommend it and I will certainly be back for a third vacation. Free hotel transfers however would be the ultimate icing on the cake.

If you are looking for a honeymoon oasis, look no further. This resort exceeded our expectations from the get go. They upgraded our suite for our honeymoon, greeted us with a bottle of champagne, and made us feel like family. Every staff member was pleasant, willing to help, and personable. The quality of service was impeccable. It is perfectly located with so many opportunities for a quiet relaxing vacation as well as excursions. We loved all of the pools - particularly the main pool with Jose and Alejandro! They work tirelessly to keep guests happy and laughing. The night life is amazing and included a circus, fire breathers, silent disco, and mariachi band. The food was great with many options morning and night. We had a couples massage with hydrotherapy - a MUST!! You can join in or get a quiet nights rest. We will most definitely be back. Thank you for going above and beyond for your guests in both a safe and beautiful getaway!
