We went to Excellence Riviera Cancun on our honeymoon 4 years ago and decided to make a return trip, it was just as amazing as we remembered it. The food and drinks were everything we wanted and more. Also, those in the LGBT community this is just the place for you, it’s all inclusive when it comes to luxury and people!

Hotel's Favourite
I am an avid traveller. I usually tend to avoid all inclusive hotels because the food, the drinks and the quality of service is generally subpar at best. I prefer more local, high end quality over quantity. This was my second trip to the Excellence so I knew what to expect. Their hygiene, cleaning standards and food and beverage quality are exactly that, Excellent. Everything was taken care of at every moment. We never worried or even thought about a thing. The staff was exceptional. You could NOT pass one employee without them politely greeting you. Every restaurant was clean, organized and impressively delicious. I don't have one complaint and that it not easy for me. Special shout out to Moises at the bar, amazing service, attitude and people pleasing skills. Despite COVID this property didn't miss a beat from life Pre-COVID. I highly recommend the Excellence brand properties and I will most definitely return.

The food was average, our whole party fell sick on the second day. The bathroom in our suite was not private at all with a swinging glass door and no lock or vent. There were no bathrooms in close proximity to the club pool which we paid extra to have club access. The calls went unanswered when we would call for the concierge. The service staff was very nice ams helpful but the overall experience was not excellent. The check out process was not easy and the desk staff at check out were not nice. I’m sure they would have been nicer if we would have went all the way back to the club to check out but our car was waiting and we were never told about check out. Would not go back.

My wife and I vacationed at the Excellence Riviera Resort during the first week of October for seven days to celebrate our wedding anniversary in addition to her upcoming birthday. This is our fourth visit in a year to the Excellence Resort and we have already begun planning a fifth visit in January. We had the most incredible week thanks to the impeccable management that consistently goes beyond any expectations. We would like to sincerely thank General Manager José Maria C., Guest Manager Fatima Young, and B and F Manager Andres Terrones. Throughout our stay, they were exceptionally attentive to our needs and ensured we had an unforgettable experience. We would also like to thank the fabulous staff from the excellence club: Manager Maria, from the Excellence club pool Edgar, Ernesto, Amable, Moisés, and Margarita. The wonderful Chef Eulogio, Ulises, and Angie stationed at the Lobster House also helped contribute to such an amazing and beautiful experience that was more sincere, wonderful, and marvelous than anything we could have imagined.
