We have visited many A I's in the past, this is our second time at the Excellence Riviera and it is the best for us, including one other Excellence. The staff are professional and treated us as though we were friends. The 2 concierges, Leslie and Talina went out of their way to ensure our anniversary was perfect. Roberto, the...

We had our first experience with an all-inclusive at Excellence and we're very glad we did. Our Concierge was fantastic. We traveled with a group of 14 people and had great dining experiences. The resort is very clean and well taken care of. The beach and pools are great! The gym is a little small but had excellent equipment. Overall...

This was our second time at ERC! We can't imagine going anywhere else! The resort is immaculate, service always top notch, food was awesome. The weather was great and that reflected in the ocean. It was clear with not much seaweed. The bars were all great, literally will make you anything you want! Joel and Andres at the Blue Bar...

We arrived on December 29 2016 for 11 nights and it really is a fantastic resort- there is lots to do and the beach itself and the facilities are great. The staff are very friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble for them. The New Years Eve gala was really well organised and the food was delicious. Overall...

5 couples came together and had a great holiday. The resort accommodated our request to eat together every night which was much appreciated. The food was excellent except oddly the Mexican food restaurant which was abysmal. We couldn't get to every restaurant but enjoyed what we did. The French and the Grill were outstanding. Loved the pools and lazy river,...

This was our second visit to the Excellence Riviera Cancun. We like that this resort is adult only (mostly 40+) and all inclusive. Both times, we upgraded to the Excellence Club. This is a must !!! My husband developed a terrible cold before we left for the trip. He was sick for the first 5 days of the holiday. Andy,...

I was already 3 times in this Hotel (in 2006, in 2009 and now in 2017) and I was really curious if the high quality standard of the past experiences will still be met or if the Hotel is too old now. Result: it is still the same and has even improved! all the facilities and the rooms are kept...

My wife and I (33 and 32 yr old) have made a trip to Cancun two years in a row now. Last year we stayed at Oceans Corral and Turquesa and we had a very good review. This year we decided to go adult only and a little nicer....We could not be happier with our choice!! We stayed for 5...

We have traveled to Mexico many times, always staying at lovely resorts. This was our second trip to Excellence and we must still count this as THE best resort! If you are looking for a romantic, relaxing vacation in beautiful surroundings, then this is your "go to" place. We opt for lower priced rooms as we are not in the...

This was our second visit to the Excellence Resort. We (2 couples) wouldn't have gone back if the resort didn't live up to its name, Excellence! And although our rooms on this time were a lot farther away from the center of things, they were still exceptional in every way. And while I think that 1) the Asian-fusion restaurant should...

“In principle, all rooms are good enough. There are some suites with top sundeck which seem to be the best, but for a premium price.”
