First time at the Excellence in Cancun, which was recommended by friends who have stayed here before. Great service, beautiful resort and friendly staff. This will definitely be worth another trip. Thanks also to Steve Curnow @ Beach Bum Vacation for arranging our hotel and transportation reservations.

Excellence was a beautiful resort with large rooms. Food was great, especially compared to other all-inclusive resorts. There were plenty of activities to keep you busy.

Bring...
