In one of the top tourist destinations of the world, it would be hard to imagine a more dramatic setting than Playa Mujeres in Cancun—an all inclusive oasis situated on an untouched peninsula between the Caribbean and a wetlands preserve. Playa Mujeres brings contemporary luxury to the wilds of the region. Its setting is stunning, reclusive as it is exclusive, on a two-mile stretch of powdery virgin white sand.

Excellence Playa Mujeres is a very unique resort located 35 minutes from the airport in a secluded location North of Cancun. The resort has 450 junior suites and opened in Winter 2008. The resort is similar in quality to Secrets and offers very similar layout and the rooms are very comparable. The resort has a half dozen meandering pools with plenty of hammocks, beach beds, and lounge chairs. Excellence offers all premium brand liquors and a variety of Mexican beers and Budweiser products. There are 8 restaurants with French, Mexican, Italian, Spanish/Tapas, Steak, Mediteranean, Asian (with teppanaki and sushi) and Lobster themes.

The most popular shows are the musical Chicago, a Michael Jackson Tribute show, and the magician. Other entertainment options include a nightclub, karaoke, and live music.
The rooms are wonderful and the roof top terrace suite is outstanding! This suite offers a 600 square foot roof top terrace complete with private pool, incredible views, and lounge chairs. The Excellence Club is very similar to Secrets Preferred club with similar benefits (upgraded minibar and room service menu, pillow menu, prime location). There is an Excellence Club Private pool exclusive to guests of that section. The Excellence Club has super premium liquors like Grey Goose. All of the rooms offer a large two person Jacuzzi, stocked minibar, and 24 hour room service.
The resort has an amazing spa with 16 treatment rooms and a great fitness center with cardio, free weights, and classes. Clients staying 7 nights or longer for their honeymoon in an Excellence Club suite or higher gets the Excellence Honeymoon package valued at $800 (massage, dinner on the beach, decorated room, champagne breakfast in bed, candles, and more)(travel must commence within 30 days of the wedding).
The two main concerns about this resort is the location and the beach. The beach is subpar with seaweed and rocks. The resorts is 20 minutes from Cancun and 90+ minutes from Playa del Carmen. Overall, this is an amazing resort and perfect for honeymooners. The rooftop terrace suite is super unique and one of the best-selling points of the resort. The location is a concern if you’re planning on doing any excursions or would like to visit local bars and restaurants.
