Excellence Playa Mujeres

I planned a trip for 4 couples last January and we were beyond satisfied with Excellence Playa Mujeres north of Cancun. We made an excellent choice. This resort is an adults only, all-inclusive resort on a 20-mile peninsula that feels wonderfully remote but is surprisingly accessible. This oasis of virgin beaches and lavishly appointed architecture exudes contemporary luxury.

This is the view from the lobby

First of all, none of the photos I’ve seen do the property justice. It’s much more beautiful and lush than I expected, especially the beach. There was a small amount of beach grass, but it was very minor and the maintenance staff kept the beach free of it. There were several days when we couldn’t even see any.

While the water was not that aqua blue, it was still a gorgeous greenish turquoise color and very clear. It was pretty spectacular, and being away from any other properties (save for La Amada), made up for it. We loved the fact that Excellence Playa Mujeres is in a secluded location, away from the congestion of the hotel zone. You can walk for miles along the beach in a very natural, unspoiled setting. I only hope it remains that way and that the developers enforce strict zoning requirements to keep the area as beautiful and natural as it is now.

I don’t want to be repetitive, but the rooms are spectacular and the employees are outstanding. They work so hard, are very friendly and will bend over backward to please. All of the waiters, hostesses, concierge’s, etc were phenomenal.

Our room had a private rooftop terrace complete with large whirlpool

The grounds are meticulously kept and lush.



Excellence Playa Mujeres is an absolutely gorgeous resort. If you want to relax and be catered to in a stunning setting, Excellence Playa Mujeres is the way to go.

We had an outstanding experience at this resort, so much so that I would go back in a heartbeat and I’m VERY excited to try their new resort that will be opening in Jamaica.
