Service was nice, but air conditioning was not adequate to cool and reduce humidity in the the room. Could not sleep due to the room never cooling to a comfortable temperature. Even the lobby was hot. This was in early May so cannot imagine later in the summer. It's an older hotel in need of updates throughout the interior and exterior. Drinks were difficult because of the poor liquor selection and inconsistency. Even when we found decent liquor, they would run out. We were generally disappointed and found it to be a poor experience and value for what we paid.

I am a teacher who needed a relaxing getaway for spring break and this was it! From the moment we arrived on property we felt relaxed and received 5 star service. We felt at home and extremely comfortable given this covid world we are still living in. The food and the service in the restaurants were amazing! I loved how you could pull up the app to see which restaurants would be open and preview the menu to help you decide where to go. It was so nice to hear live music each night in socially distant outdoor venue. The staff was so accommodating and made sure any request we had was met! The bike tour was so much more than we expected! 10/10 would recommend it (Christian was great!). We rode a short distance to town and got to souvenir shop on top of seeing some beautiful wall murals! Having on site Covid tests made traveling back to the states so easy! Our concierge set up a time for our test that fit our schedule and we were in and out in less than 10 minutes. Everything was pure excellence and we look forward to returning in July!

We had a great time at Excellence. Overall everything was spectacular. We stayed in a swim up suite in the Excellence Club and it was well worth it. All of the staff were extremely helpful and were there to make your experience great. We spent most of our time by the lazy river pool as it was quieter than the main pool. The Excellence club pool was also nice but was the busiest as well. We only enjoyed the beach one afternoon as most days it is too windy and you get blasted by the sand. The beach is also very weedy although they do try to keep it as cleaned up as possible. Overall we will definitely be back on our next trip to Cancun.

We came to Excellence with many couples and had a blast. There are tons of activities still (less because of Covid) and many different areas of the resort that offer a different experience. The pools are warm-ish but the activity pool is cooler...thank goodness because Mexico is hot. First off, I have to give a HUGE shout-out to the best of the Excellence staff: Mateo (omelet station) is the best Omelette maker ever! Diana (The Kitchen Table Hostess) is the friendliest welcoming part of their staff. And you can only hope to get Oswaldo as your room attendant. He is fabulous and so incredibly kind. He made amazing towel animals for us for our anniversary trip and EVERYTHING was impeccably clean. Christian and Javier (pool/beach side fun) made our stay amazing. They brought life to a sometimes lifeless crowd and they are top notch people. Now for the pros and cons: Pros- the staff is almost always happy. They all welcome you and try and make sure you have everything you need. The restaurants offer many different selections and are very decent in flavor. The grounds are stunning. Truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. The pools are clean and good temperatures. The Spa totally rocks! You have to try the hydrotherapy and get a massage. It is pricey but hey, you're at a resort. Why not?! The shows are fun and karaoke is a blast. The rooms are A+++. Seriously, you will love it. I can say NOTHING negative about the rooms. The martini bar is the only place to be. Delicious drinks there. The Kitchen Table is perfect. Definitely go there every morning for breakfast. Cons- MAKE SURE YOUR TRANSFER IS CONFIRMED! I emailed the transfer people 3 times trying to book and we ended up having to pay almost $150 extra because they never got back to me and the resort definitely didn't offer to reimburse us. (We paid for 3 couples to stay for 9 days to boot) We stayed in the Excellence club area and didn't feel as though we were being treated as good as the other side for the first few days. They upped their game a few days later but was kind of weird. The Excellence club drinks are not any better than the regular side, overall, not worth the extra money unless you want to sit at the overcrowded Excellence pool area for status. The wine, if you are a wine drinker, is a total let down. I paid top price (over $100 a bottle) for a few bottles while there and they were all just ok. That could definitely improve. The AC could be better. I like a cool/cold room when sleeping so it made it hard to get a good night's rest as no place there is cool enough. I will definitely come back and would recommend this place to everyone. It is worth going and enjoying all the pleasures of this beautiful resort.
