Wonderful Couples Resort

The hotel was beautifula and the location is remote so we are the only ones one the beach and it's not crowded. The staff was so friendly and very accomodating. The food was delicous and such a great variety. We will definitely be back.

Secluded Luxury

My wife and I chose Excellence Playa Mujeres for our honeymoon destination. It's tucked away approximately 20 minutes North of the Cancun Airport, so if you are looking to be in the middle of the Cancun shopping and night life, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking to be out of the rush in a beautiful, secluded place (like we were), it's perfect. From the time we arrived, the staff went beyond our expectations to make sure that we were taken care of in every way. The rooms were spacious and clean and very well appointed. The grounds and pools are kept perfectly. The eight restaurants are all quite good, but the best part is the room service. Breakfast served on your patio just can't be beat. The beach leaves a little to be desired, as there is a good bit of seaweed that washes up in this area. They do drag it away every morning, but it detracts some from the otherwise great beach. The water is beautiful, and the hotel has it fixed very nicely for lounging out in the sun. This resort is all-inclusive and unlike some resorts they actually mean it. We didn't owe one red cent when we left. In all, this was a wonderful experience for us, and i wouldn't be surprised if we return in a couple of years.

Heaven on Earth

Everything about this trip was excellent. Every meal was great. Awesome room, bars and pools. Loved the remote location. The beach was outstanding. A little seagrass, that was picked up every morning. You could walk for miles on beack without any pesky vendors. Everyone on the staff went above and beyond.They were incredible. Tip early. Tip often. They work extremely hard for you to enjoy your trip. We would highly and strongly recomend going to this resort. We can't wait go back. Loved it.

Worry free Vacation in Paradise

We spent most days on our private rooftop terrace and ordered tons of room service. The service was prompt and the food was as good as any we had ordered at their restaurants. At night we would dress up and go out to a nice dinner followed by drinks at the bar then usually some late night dancing at the disco. Later we would return to our room and order more drinks and maybe watch a little channel 49-50 (free nonstop adult movies). Housekeeping came by diligently to clean the room, stock the minibar as required, and turn down the bed each night. Each night with turndown service you were given yummy little chocolates and the agenda along with the weather forecast for the following day. The rooftop terrace was worth every penny! We loved the pool up there and I loved the fact that you could sunbathe topless without fear of being gawked at! Although most of the pools allow you to go topless if you wish...I wasn't quite comfortable with that! The staff was incredibly friendly and worked nonstop to make sure your stay was amazing. We will definitely return to this resort as soon as possible. It was heaven.

Save your money and buy your souvenirs at the airport when you leave instead of the hotel gift shop. The airport has better prices and they have a much wider selection.

True Excellence--Almost Perfect!

My wife and I celebrated our 20th Anniversary and we could not be more pleased (notwithstanding the swine flu concerns at this point). This resort was awesome--would rate at 4.99999 out of 5...just shy of perfection. We relied on these reviews as we determined where we'd spend our vacation and found the comments (both positive & negative) to be very helpful. We looked forward to providing honest feedback to others. Absolutely great place for couples, whether for anniversary or not...Playa Mujeres accommodates to couples and provides a few niceties for honeymooners and anniversaries. The staff makes you feel like you are the only ones at the hotel...OK, 99% of the staff ... almost all of the time. For us, it was 100% ... all the time; we could not have picked a better place for our 20th. Biggest disappointment was the wine list for the restaurants. Only a few types (from Chile, Spain) were "included" and they were not very good. They had to improve just to be "bad". We expected an all inclusive to include at least one decent wine ... not the case, you had to pay extra for anything better than "Blah". The Staff is incredible and hard working, Spa was awesome, food was excellent in most cases (understand why some rated it "hit or miss"), pools and beach are great, plenty of bars, trip to Isla Mujeres was a nice day away (bring pesos, although the vendors accept dollars, you'll get a better exchange rate giving them pesos). Minor negative w/r/t Orbitz at hotel. Ended up booking trip to Isla Mujeres with competitor.

A Fantastic Resort

Excellence keeps true to its name as we enjoyed our stay at the wonderful resort. From check-in to check-out we were treated with great service from the staff, good food, and a beautiful hotel and location. I have also been to Excellence Punta Cana which was so great I didn't believe it would get better until I checked in to Excellence Playa Mujera. I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone interested in taking a vacation.

Best in Show - Mutts in Paradise

Been here twice and can't think of a single bad thing to say. Be sure to order the Mexican Coffee with your evening meal at least once. The coffee is wonderful, but the show of making it at your table is unbelievable. We have stayed at other all-iclusives (Dreams, Sandals etc) and they can't touch Excellence for service, food, and attention to detail. Thier slogan is "Welcome to Excellence, welcome home." If my home was like this I would never leave. We did the following tours: 1)Shopping - if you bought a package through Orbitz or some of the other wholesalers this will most likely be free. They take you to the shopping area and tell you to catch a city bus back. I would recommend against that. We did that the first trip but the bus is crowded, the ride is long and you really need to speak better spanish than I do to make it work. Catch a cab back to the hotel (ask the price up front - $35.00 american for us) it is much more relaxing and takes about 1/3 the time. 2. Chichen Itza - the ride to and from the pyramid is long and it is usually hotter inland (113 degrees the day we went)but definately take a day to go see it. Amazing. 3. Jungle Tour - You take wave runners to a snorkling area. Was very fun. The bus takes you to a water recreation park to start where you can rent a locker. Bring cash, camera, sunscreen, and a change of clothes. 4. Isla Mujeres - The island of women. Good day trip. You catch a ferry to the island (take a cab to and from the ferry) where they have shopping, food and you can rent scooters or golf carts to explore the rest of the island. We had a riot. One last thing. The resort is adults only so no one under 18 is allowed on the grounds. That means thier patrons are almost exclusively Honeymooners and couples who's kids are grown and gone (like mine). Both groups tend to be laid back. If you want to raise hell in the wee hours of the morning or buzz the local bars, you will most likely not find any kindred souls in that group. This is a place to relax and kick back, have some good food, a few drinks and be pampered in a beautiful setting. Enjoy

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

The resort is a long cab ride from Cancun shopping areas ($35 american each way) which are very nice. However, it is only a short trip to the ferry that takes you to isla mujeres, the island of women. Go there instead. They have all the usual tourist stuff for sale and you can rent a scooter or golf cart to drive around the island. It's a riot, and the coastline is amazing.

Beautiful resort, Great Service!

Our room was amazing it had its own personal pool and lounge area as well as a breakfast nook area. We had a view of the ocean from a far even though we didnt book room with view. The service was amazing! The staff was so attentive and helpful. WE never went without a drink by the pool. When we called to have glasses brought up to our suite they were there within 10 minutes. It was such a great mix of relaxation and entertainment. There are tons of activiites planned. WE especially like the spa circuit!Great prices too!
