This is a very lovely hotel. The room, staff, food and property were all excellent. The drink selections were superb. I traveled with friends for a wedding and had a lovely time at this resort. The beach isn't the best at this time, as there was quite a bit of seaweed while we were there - but still very nice....

We have previously stayed at the Excellence Playa Mujeres (PM) location December 2013. We stayed at this location March 2014 to be closer to Cancun for scuba diving excursions. The 2 resorts are nearly identical in layout so it was easy for us to navigate. We stayed in a junior suite swim up with a jacuzzi in and out. The...

As the title says this resort is almost perfect. We stayed from 10/04 to 24/04 in the Club section with friends from the UK. The resort is visited by mainly those from North America and we met many really nice people and it was great to hear there take on world views and the resort as they saw it. To...

We are a couple in our early 30s and just returned from 5 days at Excellence Riviera Cancun. I typically enjoy jetting around the US and Europe on adventurous type vacations- trail hiking, mountain climbing, road tripping, skydiving, etc. Every once in a while you need a place to COMPLETELY relax, where you have nothing more to worry about each...

We stayed five nights the first week of April 2014, and our trip was worth every penny. The property was immaculately kept, the food was fresh and diverse, and the weather was perfect. What makes this a truly excellent resort, though, is the staff. Of modest means, we are not used to such luxury, so really appreciated the way that...

This is a beautiful resort with a lovely beach, gorgeous pool areas, especially on the Club Excellence side. It also has a fantastic spa and many wonderfully friendly and helpful members of staff. Saying that, I will not go back for 2 reasons: the complete lack of concierge service in Club Excellence and the generally disappointing food. I had a...
