If you’re reading this article, it’s for two reasons: You’re looking for an unforgettable all-inclusive vacation, and you’ve chosen one of our Excellence Resorts in Mexico to do so.
Since you’ve chosen Mexico as your home away from home, you might have come across travel forums trying to find answers to your question: Which Excellence property should I go for… Excellence Playa Mujeres or Excellence Riviera Cancun?
Although the answer might be easy, the decision is as important as the vacation itself so you can fully relax and unwind in the best place for you.
Excellence Playa Mujeres is situated 25 minutes north of Cancun International Airport in a double-gated beachfront community, while Excellence Riviera Cancun is 25 minutes south of the airport near the town of Puerto Morelos.
Both properties provide beachfront views, a powdery white sand beach, and tropical Caribbean grounds for optimal relaxation.
Each property has a personality. Excellence Playa Mujeres boasts a contemporary layout with open and wide surroundings; you’ll be astounded by the ample views of the resort as soon as you first step in.
Excellence Riviera Cancun is a classic all-suite Mediterranean-style resort, crafted from stucco, tile, and marble; the Mexican Hacienda vibe adorns the grounds throughout this beautiful property.
Suites & Amenities
The suites at both of these Cancun all-inclusive resorts are about the same size. However, at Excellence Playa Mujeres you’ll find larger balconies, the jacuzzi located closer to the balcony, and a slightly more romantic setting, versus the suites at Excellence Riviera Cancun where the jacuzzi is located in the center of the room.
Both resorts offer the same restaurants, activities, and entertainment. The lively ambiance you find will depend on the current clientele at the resort. Both resorts provide locations to join in on the party or relax in peace with the perfect midnight atmosphere to properly relax.
Beach & Destination Activities
If you’re a beach lover, the powdery sand along both stretches of the resorts will allow you to enjoy long walks while the waves harmonize your relaxing escape.
If you decide to stay at Excellence Playa Mujeres, the most popular excursion is a trip to Isla Mujeres, where clear turquoise waters will surround you on the boat ride. This island is a favorite stop for shopping and exploring, with great views from every angle of the island.
If you’re looking for a more adventurous experience, Excellence Riviera Cancun is the closest to an impressive natural attraction: the second biggest coral reef in the world, as well as many other nearby Riviera Maya attractions where you can wander and release your inner jungle explorer.
Dining & Service
Both resorts offer the same restaurants; however, Excellence Playa Mujeres has recently made additions and revamped their locations to provide newer and more elegant experiences for their visitors, like Magna restaurant for Excellence Club guests and Havana, their new Cigar Bar Lounge, while Excellence Riviera Cancun showcases their new beach snack grill right under a huge palapa and impressive infinite beach views.
Speaking of service, once you have experienced Excellence’s top-notch attention to detail, you will be hooked! And we’re not kidding! Both resorts deliver a high level of presence and cater to every guest need. Spoiled? Excellence Resorts will take it to the next level!
Pools & Grounds
If you’re more of a pool lover, both properties display extensive, well-located, and incredibly refreshing pools! At Excellence Riviera Cancun, you will find secluded lagoon-style pools (in addition to their main pools) amidst lush gardens, while Excellence Playa Mujeres has river-style pools.
The maintenance for both resorts will amaze you! The grounds from our locations are 360° immaculate, detailed hard work with beautiful gardens and open spaces where you can find the picture-perfect spot or just to relax in the privacy of its corners.
Relaxation at Miilé Spa
If you need one thing while on vacation, it’s relaxation… and the perfect package for this has to be the spa facilities found at both properties, each with an impressive hydrotherapy circuit.
Excellence Riviera Cancun has that grand two-story high spa entrance that will have you swooning from every angle, set at the center of one of their beautiful pools. Plus, at Excellence Riviera Cancun you can find a sacred Temazcal for an ancient Mesoamerican sweat lodge experience.
