We two couples just returned from a 6 night stay at the Excellence in Playa Mujeres. We have been to several all inclusive resorts in the Caribbean. Typically, the food is average and the wine unacceptable (exception is the Velas Resorts and Frieda at the Pacifico Sunset in Cabo). We all agreed that it would be hard to complain about much at the Excellence. While we didn't even make it to all of the restaurants, we were able to eat at our first choice place every evening with no reservations and only a modest wait. Our favorites were the French, Italian and Asian. The Mexican was surprisingly, the least appealing. The rooms are outstanding (approx.. 800 sq. ft. )spaces with en suite Jacuzzi, double shower, lovely furnishings, stocked mini bar and queen size chaise on the ample terrace. The 7 pools and plentiful cabanas and lounges both poolside and on the beach were always available for us. Nightly entertainment is very good with a mix of acoustic voice and guitar, Latin dance quintet and cruise style dance reviews to taped music. The location is terrific, not crowded with hotels and within a short ferry ride of the Isla Mujeres, which shouldn't be missed. To a person, the staff were gracious and hospitable. We send a special hello to our great poolside man, Arturo!
Our only complaint was that for a hotel of this caliber, the beds and bedding should be upgraded. Softer mattresses and pillows and cotton percale sheets would bring the rooms to a perfect 10! If you go, make sure to ask for a king bed and try to get on the third or fourth floor. Do not pay extra for the swim up suite. They have no view and the patios aren't nearly as nice or private as balconies.
