Just got back from a 7 night stay at this resort. We stayed in a junior swim up room, the actual number was 9004. The room was very good and as stated before the beds are very high but no real issues getting in or out of the room. Our room was located just behind the Excellence Club with a...

Last year we were looking for a place to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Our travel agent suggested we try Excellence. We agreed and had a wonderful time. This year, we asked for new suggestions. He told us that Excellence was still the best option so we went back. This may become an annual tradition. Everything about this resort is top-notch....

This was the second time we have visited this resort. The first time we visited we went for a friend's destination wedding. We were so impressed we wanted to revisit the resort but wanted to try a new destination so we visited the Excellence in Punta Cana, DR. It was nice but a little older and the beach wasn't quite...

My husband and I returned home last night after a 5 night stay at the Excellence Riviera Cancun. This was our first time staying at an all inclusive resort and we truly struck gold. Several friends had recommended Excellence to us and after reading reviews here on Trip Advisor we knew Excellence was the place for us. We were immediately...

Just returned from a week stay. The resort is beautiful and very clean. I am not a fan of all-inclusive because the food is always just average... same here, except for the Mexican food ( which we looked for - at the Tuesday night beach buffet dinner the tacos were delicious!) also the breakfast burrito at Lobster House was good...

We travel here yearly for our college roommate girlfriend getaway. We have tried several resorts in the Cancun area and have decided to give up trying to find a better experience. It is the service that sets Excellence Resorts apart...from check in, to room service to the pool, bars, beach, martini bar, Excellence club and restaurants, we cannot find fault....

After two great vacations in 2015 and 2016 at Excellence we were anticipating another wonderful week in 2017. We upgrade to Excellence Club, not so much for the goodies delivered at 6:30, nor the ocean view from the balcony that we use an hour a day, nor the premium alcohol that sits in our room bar. It is for the...
