The best vacation ever! That was what my beloved said about our most recent visit to Excellence Playa Mujeres. The original plan for 2016 was to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary in August with a cruise to Alaska for 10 days. Alas, my work schedule nixed that plan and at the last minute we booked 10 days in December at...

This was my 3rd visit to this Excellence location, the last being 3 years ago. The resort is immaculate. The gym is great and has been improved since last visit. The food is great and they added a coffee place and a permanent structure on the beach for themed lunches. The entertainment is top notch & non stop. Someone checks...

I'll be honest, I used to be a person that was skeptical of all inclusive, but Excellence Playa Mujeres has changed my tune. My wife asked me to take a risk and try it and she was right. We had a club level room with our own roof pool and it was great. We didn't love the location of our...

First, never compare one resort to the other. I stayed at the Excellence in Punta Cana for Christmas, unfortunately except for the staff place was horrible. Now Playa Mujeres- Excellente! Food, staff, cleanliness, service, everything was great. We had a swim up sweet in the 8000 section- thumbs up to my boy Ignacio at the concierge by the pool. Everyday...

My wife and I just returned from ten days at the Excellence Playa Mujeres. We had a fantastic time, and thought the property and personnel were among the best we have seen on any trip. The staff went out of their ways to make our visit enjoyable. The room was spacious and clean, and the mini bar was refreshed daily....

My husband and I just returned from our second trip to Cancun, first one staying in an Excellence resort, and we will never go to another Cancun resort – Excellence is truly the best. We stayed for 3 nights (wish it had been longer), and our time at Excellence Playa Mujeres was truly perfection. Here are some details about our...

Excellence Playa Mujeres is a slice of heaven on Earth! We have been fortunate to visit the resort five times in the past 7-8 years. It continues to improve and refine the experience for the visitors. Every employee wants to make sure that each guest feels welcome, from the "welcome home" upon arrival to the "buenos dias" as you pass...

This place is nothing short of its name. They excel in customer service, food, and amenities. I went for my anniversary and we were celebrated. The spa was incredible. You get to enjoy a water circuit before your spa experience and it made the price of the services well worth it. Cesar is an awesome and attentive bartender. The staff...
