We visited the Excellence Playa Mujeres February 8-12th and had a fantastic time! Everything was 5-star from the food, service, pools, beach, drinks, cleanliness - we can't wait to go back! There were too many restaurants for us to make it to each of them during our (too) short trip. The meals we did have at Agave, Spice, The Lobster House and The Grille were amazing. Pizza by the pool for lunch or the club sandwich were also fantastic. We enjoyed breakfast at the smoothie bar and Toscana most days, very a large variety at Toscana! Miile Spa - we did a couple massage one morning and enjoyed the hydrotherapy option beforehand. Again, felt every one went above and beyond to make our visit relaxing and enjoyable! We did the bike tour one morning with Dante and learned a lot about the area. He took us all along the Playa Mujeres area on the bike path and we ended visiting some macaws. Was very interesting and we learned a lot about the local area and how it has come to be the past 10ish years. The main pool was much warmer than the side pools but it was nice to have some options other than just the party pool. Access too and from each area was easy to figure out so you could go back and forth to the swim up bar easily. Loved the APA at the martini bar and Captain Morgan option! Nightly entertainment was always changing by the hour and different each night. All around, no complaints! Stay here!
VERY NICE ROOM AND RESORT. DIDN'T REALIZE THAT IF YOU'RE NOT A CLUB MEMBER, YOU COULD HARDLY GET ACCESS TO A CHAIR ON THE BEACH. PAID 3600 FOR A 3 NIGHT STAY AND FLIGHT FROM DALLAS JUST TO GET AWAY TO A RELAXING PLACE WITH SOME BEACH TIME WITH MY WIFE. ONLY HAD DINNER AT ONE OF THE RESTAURANTS BECAUSE THE REQUIREMENT AT THE REST OF THEM WAS TO WEAR SLACKS AND COLLARED SHIRTS. DIDN'T BRING SLACKS FOR THE SHORT TIME WE WERE THERE. DEFINITELY WON'T RETURN.
From the staff to the views. Great hotel, clean, and fun. It's all there.
My wife and I spent 8 nights here for our honeymoon. It was a perfect stay. We chose the excellence club two story suite, and the room was perfect. We had access to all Restaraunt and bars. Our faves were Chez Isabelle and Basmalti. The coffee shop is perfect for snacks as well. The staff was very thoughtful and amazing. The property was amazing, and the view was exceptional. The only things was thar the beach had lots of seaweed in it, but we didn't want to swim to it didn't matter.
The hotel is fine. But if you ordered a king bed and they give you a room with 2 twin beds is not too right. They want to change us the room next day but I didn't want to move. The beds are high. You need to claim on them. The mattresses are not comfortable. And the pillows are not comfortable . The food is were good in the buffet for breakfast and lunch. They have 9 restaurants dor dinner. Spice was the best. Aroma cafe is a popular coffer shop and so good. They have a pizza bar near the beach for all day and evening. We try the Flavor market restaurant. The food was terrible so in the Toscana .we wait for the food an our eating just bread.
Stayed for 5 days Have traveled to Cancun area several times Stellar service and resort
There are two downsides to this great all inclusive. One is the congestion and travel time to get to its location. The other .......is the bathroom and shower area is completely open to the room. All sights and sounds are too easily shared. We had to ask one another to go out on the veranda for those special moments.
Wea had previously been four times to Dreams. EPM was more expensive, but well worth the extra money. Loved the lazy river, and the restaurants, apart from a bad experience wth over-cooked (half) lobster.
Staff are all very nice & service was excellent, though sometimes food service was a little slow. Bathrooms need more light & the small mirrors were mounted too high for my 5'2 wife. Some food dishes were just ok, a few were excellent, breakast was very good. The hibachi dinner was terrible, lacked flavor, all meats overcooked, and vegetables (cooked first) were not kept warm while he cooked the meats. For most part the live music was above average compared to other resorts in area. All in all, this is definitely one of best in Cancun area & we would go back, though we like going different place each year.
Amazing service, amazing accomodations - first All Inclusive experience and its going to be extremely difficult to surpass it
The resort grounds are beautiful, staff went above and beyond, ammenities were amazing. Great place
Fifth visit to Excellence Playa Mujeres over the last 6 years and every time somehow the resort always seems to improve. We would like to thank Vilma for fulfilling our room request, Carolina for the special treats, as well as Rubi and Virgilio for spectacular drink service. My wife was ill duing the last part of the trip, through no fault of the resort, and we would also like to thank Roberto the front desk manager, Jesse at the main concierge desk, the building 7 concierge whom I failed to remember her name for their assistance and concern. We will definitely be back!
Wife and I have stayed at this resort four times and plan on another visit. We used the Super Shuttle service this time instead of Gray Lines. From the airport to resort was ok but from the resort to the airport had to set in the vehicle 30 minutes at another resort pickup and no passengers entered the vehicle.
I've previously stated at Dreams resorts in Cancun (now the Hyatt) and DR. Those are my baselines. In both cases, I felt Dreams had better staff. Dreams Cancun had by far the better location and beach. Excellence has better facility. Excellence had strict policies about reservations at Hibachi and other rules. We couldn't go to Hibachi b/c our friends were not arriving until 11:00am that day and you must make you own reservation the day of. These filled up before they arrived so we had to wait - no exceptions. I also don't like the pants dress code at (almost?) every restaurant for dinner. Especially given the shows following are in a hot theater Staff didn't seem as friendly or happy. We do tip so that isn't an issue. Bartenders weren't rude, just not part of the fun. One bartender at the Martini bar (Job) is the exception. Shortly after arriving we met a young gal who is on the entertainment team. She mentioned a couple times how hot it is to work all day. Sorta a buzz kill. Beach and pool service were slow. The ocean is choppy regardless of weather thus not as clear as I'm used to. The facility is really nice in that it is only 9 yrs old. The rooms are clean and have nice creature comforts. We had the Jr. Suite and it was great in terms of space. Bldg 5 sucks but oh well. They had to make a King out of two doubles in both my friends room and ours. Weird for an adult only place. ATM dispenses USD so you then need to convert at a slightly taxed rate.
Third time at the hotel. Everything was nice. Would visit again.
For the potential travellers i can say that this is a very nice hotel with a comprehensive all inclusive system. Upscale drinks and 24h room service. hotel staff is amazing and they are trying their best to avoid anything that may unplease you. You have a la carte restaurants in the hotel offering different cuisines but of course you shouldn't have high expectations since they are resort restaurants exclusive to the hotel guests only. Only negative thing is the location of the hotel. It is a bit far from the city centre but it was OK for us.
Beautiful setting, beautiful hotel, meticulously maintained hotel, hard working employees to please visitors. You will not regret.
The service was great, the quality of the food was delicious, the hotel amenities were excellent. Overall a very high end hotel at a reasonable price.
This is the 4th year and a row that my wife and I have stayed here. If you want to relax and be treated like royalty, this is the place for you!
