Help decide Majestic Elegance or Excellence

Taking a last minute getaway this month without the kids. Husband and I are looking for an Adults only resort. We are in out mid-40's and prefer not to be in a resort that is filled with mostly twenty somethings.

Nice & clean rooms that don't feel worn that have outdoor space (balcony)

Nice beach

Swim-up Bar

Room Service

On-site entertainment, Enjoy live music and possible dancing

Variety of options for dinner

Casino would be a bonus

There doesn't seem to be that much of a difference in price. Prices at both resorts are in budget.

According to the current Majestic Elegance website, the restaurants are: Flavours, See & Sea, 9 Doors, Asadito Steak House, Limited Gourmand, Il Botaccio, and La B del M. One of them is a buffet, and one of them is a late night snack bar, so that means 5 a la carte restaurants, with two requiring reservations.

Excellence has 9 a la carte restaurants for dinner with no reservations required at any of them, as well as a snack bar on the beach, as well as food served at the sports bar and the Club lounge, and on the beach and around the pool.

All restaurants at Excellence are available to everyone, and all are adult only. None are adult only at Majestic Elegance.

And how do you know what the rooms are like at Excellence since the renovations, when you haven't been there since well before the renovations?

The web site is, unfortunately, outdated. And I left one restaurant out for breakfast and lunch for Club guests. Just comparing the Adults only portions. There are less than 300 adults only rooms. Many choices of pools for Club guests with more intimate areas that at EPC. The size of the rooms hasn't changed since the renovations at EPC and I have seen updated photos. Not true that there are no eating areas that are adults only at ME: 5 Club lounges with food, one dinner a la carte Adult only, one a la carte for breakfast and lunch adult only, private room for buffet adult only for breakfast and lunch, another a la carte for dinner has separate adult only club dining room.

I'm not bashing Excellence.
