Excellence Playa Mujeres is where we stayed for our honeymoon and got the terrace suite with plunge pool. We got really lucky and had no travel issues and beautiful, sunny, 80 degree weather the entire time we were there!
We selected this resort after much research and reading reviews of the amazing food, drinks and services offered. This resort gas 10 restaurants and 11 bars and 24 hour room service included in the all inclusive package. room was spacious, modern and beautiful! The bathroom is somewhat open to the bedroom which some people might find weird but it didn’t bother us. There are so many selections for dinner with 9 restaurants. We got settled in our room and went to dinner at the Mexican restaurant it was outside and had awesome Decour and we got there pretty early like 5pm so the restaurant was pretty empty.
The food was amazing we split three entrées and few we got a few appetizers and of course the guacamole. I had a margarita they had a really cool tequila bar inside and you got to pick which tequila you wanted. After we headed over to the Entertainment area, at the Excellence they go all out with their entertainment – they have a talented singers and dancers the lights the effects they have like the shows he put on nightly theater area it was really really cool to see.
Won’t go into too much detail as far as what we did on a daily basis but we did book a few excursions and we decided to book the excursions through the hotel concierge’s office and the woman who helped was Gwendolyn. She was amazing and very thorough and gave us great recommendations. We booked two excursions and then she told us about the spa that they have on their resort property. The same day we did the spa we booked the romantic dinner on the beach at night. It was extra but it was totally worth it it was so romantic and really was a great way to end a perfect day! There was a saxophone player that came out and played us a song I requested Billy Joel and then there was a photographer that you could buy the pictures from the following day we stop by and stop by the office and pick out the photos we wanted to purchase (again not included) but totally worth the money!
At the spa we booked the couples massage special that they offered and that comes with a aqua hydro-aqua therapy session to star. Never had anything like that before and it was a series of aqua therapy “stations”: sauna, shower with special scrub, jacuzzi jets in pool to get your body ready for the treatment you were booked for (note- you are wearing a bathing suit for this sesson! There are other people doing this as well!) The couples massage it was absolutely heaven, really left there feeling like $1 million and it was exactly what we needed after a long day of traveling the day before.
The first excursion we booked was the catamaran booze tour that went over to Isla Mujeres that was a great day! We had beautiful weather and we had a great tour guide the company is Catamarans Cancun. The staff is awesome, friendly and know how to have a good time. Snorkeling was included but they said the weather conditions weren’t great it was too windy however the report changed about halfway through our trip so people were able to get off and go swimming and snorkeling. My husband and I did not go snorkeling, I’ve never been snorkeling and I wasn’t going to try in choppy water. It look really beautiful the water was absolutely gorgeous clear blue. After the snorkeling part was complete the boat docked on the island of and Isla Mujeres.
On the island we rented a golf cart to explore the island little shops and had lunch. We went to Mexico’s only ice bar. It wasn’t much of a bar it was more of a room that was 10° and they give you a fake fur wrap and with your admission is included is two drinks and a shot. That was fun entertaining and kept us busy enough so by the time we were done we headed back on the golf cart to the catamaran to head back to the resort.
The other excursion we did was the day trip with the zip lining and cenote I wrote about that experience in my other blog post “Selvatica – Zipline Adventure”.
Throughout our stay we ate at all mostly all of the restaurants we cannot complain about anything with the food and the service. Everything was top of the line every server had a smile on their face was genuinely excited to see you and really made us feel welcome and we cannot wait to go back!
