We Love This Place!!!

This was our fourth visit to this resort, and we are already talking about our fifth! You cannot go wrong here -the service is next to none, and you can do many different activities or none - it's up to you. My advice is to book and go - you won't be sorry!

Cancun in July is HOT HOT HOT

Oh my, I never did cool down until just before leaving when I took a cold shower only to discover the cold water is chilled. I saved about $200 by combining airfare, hotel and R/T ground transportation thru this site. Very satisfied. The Resort is incredible. 400 rooms and 800 employees! No tipping, 24 hour room service and bar service. I stayed in a Jr Club suite, ocean view room, the club level is worth the added expense. I did not have a view of the ocean from my 2nd floor room, only a view of a pool and a lot of vegetation. If the vegetation was cut down I would be able to see the ocean. I complained and it was explained to me the building is considered ocean view compared to other buildings. the top floors did have that view. My friend in another bldg. had a ocean view but also had a view of a neighboring construction project all day every day, very loud. The food was tremendous in all the restaurants I visited. The resort is beautiful. The beach is man-made but very nice. There is a barrier island a short distance away. I had difficulty connection with the airport transfer company for my return trip. I asked my club level concierge for help and she took care of it for me. I highly recommend this place just not in July. If you love to sweat 24/7 then it is great in July.

Great vacation

We were greeted with friendly staff and welcome champagne. It was very smooth from check in to check out. Multiple swimming pools and eating places, no need for reservation for any alacart restaurants which is unusual. No waits in the lines for any restaurants. All staff were extremely friendly throughout our stay. Our favorite was the traditional mexican night with tacos and margaritas. Also, french alacart restaurant was good too. The hotel has a good entertainment program during the day and night. It was one of our best vacation ever and will definitely go back again.

Great Experience

From our check-in to check-out - the place and staff were very helpful and with great attitude. Yesenia at the pool was amazing! She provided above and beyond service. Gustavo and Alfredo at the breakfast buffet, again great attitude and very accommodating. We stayed in Building 2 although it was a walking distance from the beach and main pool - it was good 6 minute walk. The weather - food - was perfect. Restaurants: Spice, Agave, and Lobster Grill were very tasty. Overall my stay at Excellence was EXCELLENT!

Great Honeymoon in Cancun

The resort was great, first time at an all inclusive. All the food options were good. Missed a lot of the nightly entertainment, but the fire show was great. The excursions we booked through the hotel were top of the line. The spa was great. Excellent staff. Only real con that stood out was the wifi was not that good outside of the main lobby.

Perfect Honeymoon

This was my first time going to an all-inclusive resort. I can't see myself going to any other resort. Not only is this place beautiful, but what really sets this place apart is the staff and the service. Every staff member was helpful, polite, enthusiastic, and more than willing to accomodate us and make sure we were having a great time. The beach, pools, activities, food, and entertainment were all spectacular...and with the service...couldn't have asked for anything more!

Prepare to wait for dinner if you go between 7:30pm-8:30pm. But that's ok, just grab a pager and enjoy the music until you are paged.

Honeymoon

Everything was amazing! Rooftop room was Excellent. Only a couple of issues. We had almost no sleep after the wedding and taking an early am flight, so the first morning we were unhappily surprised by the sound of a tile saw at 9am in the room next door that was having repairs done. After speaking with the manager he assured us it wouldn't happen again and comped us a 2 hr couples massage. The other issue was a very slow service at one of the resturaunts, almost 2hrs to get through a dinner service, but the concierge called the next day and offered us an exclusive dinner with a personalized menu just for us. It was great, lobster and beef tenderloin. They go out of their way to assure your stay is EXCELLENT at the Excellence Playa Murejues. All in all a great place to stay.
