Warm sunny days, sea breeze, and blue water, what else could you ask for? Well if your like me a cold drink, amazing service, and luxury comes to mind. And that is just part of the experience you will receive at Excellence Playa Mujeres. Don’t believe me, then let me share my experience with you.
When you enter the lobby, it’s beautiful, the staff greets you with champagne and a cool towel. If you are Excellence Club you are taken to to the Excellence Club Lounge. The lounge lets you know the this resort has went the extra mile to make your stay amazing.
The check in was quick and before we know it you’re on your way to your room. Do note: If you arrive before the 3:00 PM check in, you can leave your bags at the club. Then have some lunch, walk around the grounds, get oriented. Then start to relax. That’s what you came for. By about 3 you’ll be set.
We were in building #8. Our room was amazing, marble everywhere, even in the oversized shower. The king size bed was comfortable. The covered patio was large with a round bed, table and chairs. From there we had another bed on the roof top terrace and a plunge pool. Oh! did I mention that from every angle we had sweeping views of the blue Azul Caribbean Sea.
Service was amazing from the maid, to the waiters and servers to the beach attendants and entertainment staff. I could not find one person who did note great me with a cheerful Hola! And a big smile.
Now for all you gym rats out there, I absolutely loved the facility! Tons of space, weights and cardio equipment with a large stretching room as well, chilled water, towels, and fruit is also available. They also have personal trainers on staff to assist with anything you need!
Food in the restaurants was great, or should I say excellent.
The Fillet Mignon at Chez Isabelle could have been cut with a spoon.
We had a great lobster in the lobster house but our favorite was the flavor market – great staff and lots of tasty Tapa’s.
The buffets for breakfast and lunch were unbelievable. There coffee bar that serves, pastries, ice cream and sandwiches on the very top floor.
The coffee is fantastic, we usually got an Americano or expresso. What’s awesome is they serve almond milk or soy milk for those that don’t do dairy.
Barcelona seemed very popular but we never actually ate there.
The alcohol is top notch, flowing in abundance, and Grey Goose is now available to everyone. From my understanding, it use to only be available in the Excellence Club areas.
Things to know
There are some issues that were not satisfactory for us.
First, the daily cleaning of the beach is necessary, but since it starts at 5 a.m.
Second, the situation by the pool in the morning for the reservation of the lawn chairs is poor. People would go down, around 6 a.m., and reserve lawn chairs and beds. Then they would not return until much later in the day in some cases it was 10:00 or 10:30 before they would show back up. This is a people being rude issue, not a resort issue.
This is a tremendous resort. If you are looking for an all-inclusive adult only resort that makes you feel like you are living a life of luxury look no farther. It is obvious why it has continually been voted as one of the top all-inclusive resorts in the world. You need to make sure Excellence Playa Mujeres is on you short list for you next vacation.
If Excellence Playa Mujeres is not quite they destination you are looking for they have several other great locations. Such as the Punta Cana location.
