booking everything thru Excellence Playa Mujeres

Has anyone ever booked hotel, airfare, insurance and private transfers thru the Excellence website. Is the travel insurance good and has anyone had any problem with the airfare or anything else?

We would appreciate any input.

I book hotel only through them, so can't comment on air or insurance. Their private transfer is doubl the price of best day, us transfers and Cancun transfers.

We have always found that the cost on the website prices out higher than pricing I have found on other websites like Orbitz or Expedia.

I usually book my own transfers as they tend to be less expensive than the hotels

I always get insurance. We usually travel during hurricane season so that's a great reason to get it!

We do piecemeal. We get our airfare through Visa Avion reward points.

We booked Cancun Transfers since it was half the price of the resort transfer.

We booked insurance with CAA.

We did book the hotel directly through the Excellence website. If you read the whole Canadian/UK/American pricing, it turns out that for Canadians, we get a MUCH lower price than someone booking from the states. Online sites couldn't touch what Excellence was offering.

I am

Im In the states and yes, we booked all through website. We leave next Thursday. I think the transfer was more than what others pay vs. cancun transfers but doing an all in one was just nicer for us. Also not sure how it is with other places but the cancelation policy is nice too. No penalty up to a week out I believe. We also get insurance as well.

I just got a quote from Travelocity's page for $5520.

I called the Excellence RESORT + AIR company which is Global Booking Solutions (not a part of Excellence) and they quoted me $6080 for the exact same thing. They also said they wouldn't price match anything.

What would you do??
