A little help please

Hi, we went to Excellence Rivera last year and loved it. I feel it will be a let down if this years hotel is not as good. We have looked at Excellence Playa Mujeres in May but do like to spend most days on the beach cooling down in the sea it seems their beach is not what we would like. Anywhere with similar budget and Adult only AI you could recommend please. Thanks in advance

Hi

We have been to ERC and EPM several times and IMHO the beach and ocean at EPM is superior to that at ERC

Another resort you could look at would be Secrets Maroma Beach

Food for thought, I thank you. Have I read you correctly and Excellence Playa Mujeres beach and sea better. I must have interpreted reviews incorrectly.

Yes the beach at EPM is far better than at ERC

Feel free to check out my photo albums for it on SlickPic

Both beaches can get weed from time to time

SMB remains our all-time favorite resort and definitely has the best beach and ocean water and bottom (with the exception of Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana).

Hi again

We prefer May as it is warmer and normally a bit cheaper as well

If you are from Norfolk in the UK check out www.caribbeanwarehouse.co.uk for prices as they have some great deals at the moment

Hi,

took your advice and had a peek at the link.

just got a fab deal with caribbean warehouse at the excellence riviera. Decided on returning here as this hotel was the best bargin on offer. Premium seats with Virgin, excellence club room, 16 nights and loads cheaper than last year.

Many many thanks flipflop-man.

You ARE the man lol
