Overview

Action-packed adults-only all-inclusive resort on a peninsula jutting into Mexico’s Caribbean sea

The Lowdown

Take nine all-inclusive restaurants (Agave for Mexican, Basmati for Indian, and The Lobster House for seafood, to name a third of the options.) Add 11 bars (including swim-up, pool, and disco). Throw in seven pools (four heated, five with whirlpools) and a full service Miilé spa. Multiply by 450 rooms and suites (some with rooftop terraces, balconies, and jacuzzis). The end result is an entire peninsula turned adult playground with the beautifully-designed resort at its heart.

In the Area

On the same peninsula as the resort—within walking distance—is the Playa Mujeres Golf Club, one of the top courses in Mexico. Nature-lovers will want to venture fifteen miles north of the property to Isla Contoy, a protected island that is a nature preserve, bird sanctuary, and nesting ground for endangered sea turtles. Guests can explore the Great Mayan Reef (also known as the Mesoamerican barrier reef) or hop the ferry to the floating fishing village of Isla Mujeres. But the most impressive excursion of all may be two hours south to the massive complex of Maya ruins at Chichén Itzá.

Anniversary Trip
cornbread14

My wife and I just went on our 3rd vacation to Excellence Playa Mujeres to celebrate our anniversary, and it really could not get any better. The facilities, amenities, entertainment, food, drinks, service, and employees are unmatched. We recommend this resort to all of our friends and family and really wish everyone we know could experience this level of luxury. Shout out to Macario and Alan at Las Olas, Luis at Havanna, Carlos, Monica, Fabian, and Eddy "Tennis Pro" of the entertainment team, Francisco at the pool, Guadalupe by the beach, and Andres, concierge in building 7 for making our vacation one we will cherish forever. If you're on the fence, book now! You will not regret it!

We won’t go anywhere but Excellence Playa Mujeres...

My husband and I just spent our 3rd vacation at Excellence Playa Mujeres. We first came for our honeymoon after having it recommended to us by a friend and have returned every year since to celebrate our anniversary. I cannot say enough good things about this truly incredible all-inclusive resort. To start, the rooms are big, clean, comfortable, well decorated, stocked with the best drinks and snacks, and have an amazing view no matter where your room is located. There are so many options as far as food and restaurants are concerned, and they are all delicious. We have had the best service and great food at all of them. The drinks and bars throughout the resort are also phenomenal. The entire resort is beautiful and extremely well-maintained and the beach is absolutely gorgeous. We have also enjoyed all of the entertainment and activities that are scheduled each day. You will never be bored at this resort, and I highly recommend actually doing at least some of the activities and going to all of the shows/entertainment each night. We loved them all! We really hit the jackpot with this being our first all-inclusive; we know we will be disappointed if we ever try to go anywhere else because none others compare, so we don't even look anywhere else. Other couples that have tried other resorts have told us this as well. In saying all of this, the primary reason we continue returning to this amazing resort is the people. The employees and the fantastic service they provide is hands down the best part about Excellence Playa Mujeres. With this being our 3rd time, we of course remembered many of the employees, but we were shocked when they recognized us as well. It really was like being welcomed back "home" by family. The service here is truly unmatched. Although we wish we could name every single employee we encountered on our vacation, we would at least like to mention several that made big impressions on us and that truly made an impact in making our stay so special.

First, Macario, the bartender at Las Olas was the absolute sweetest and greeted us with drinks every day at the beach; Alan, the server at Las Olas provided the nicest and best service (we frequented Las Olas every day for lunch - so good! Javier is a great chef as well!); Luis at the Havana Cigar Bar is a hidden gem of this resort, he made the best, most intricate drinks we've ever tasted; waiters/waitresses Francisco "Frankie", Yessica, Floricel, and Guadalupe by the beach and pools provided the best drink service; Gilberto, waiter at Toscana was always very sweet and even taught us a little Spanish during our breakfast, Ignacia and Jacqueline at the spa gave the best, most relaxing massages; Andres, the concierge in building 7 checked on us often and even had a special anniversary surprise waiting for us on our actual anniversary date; Carlos of the entertainment team was so energetic, fun, and the best dancer on the resort (he always brought a smile to my face); Monica also of the entertainment team was so sweet and so much fun; Victor of the entertainment team was very nice and caring; Arahel of the entertainment team was also a lot of fun and made many of the activities and events special; Fabian, the entertainment manager, also made an impression on us as he made it a point to speak to us several times and make sure we were thoroughly enjoying ourselves; Mr. Beto, the set designer that works behind the scenes really impressed us with his design and creative skills; and lastly, Eddy, also part of the entertainment team, also known as the "Tennis Pro" and the best pool volleyball player/leader ever was incredible (he truly made a lasting impact on us by connecting with us personally and truly showing us he cared; go play pool volleyball with Eddy everyday - one of the most fun activities at the resort and you will not regret meeting him and his great personality/sense of humor.) One word to describe every employee is: sincere. I could really go on and on about this resort and about the people that have made our vacations ones we will cherish forever, but just know if you choose Excellence Playa Mujeres, you will not regret it (or ever want to leave).

Always our home away from home. The property is always beautiful. The restaurants are always offering delicious items even the ones with dietary options. However the staff is the reason we continue to stay at their resorts.
