Mexico - Excellence Playa Mujeres

February 9, 2017

 "I don't have a dirty mind...I have a sexy imagination"

 

Excellence Playa Mujeres was voted the Tripadvisor's 2017 Travellers' Choice for the third year in a row, and honestly we aren't surprised.  Out of all of our travels, this one was the most unique, sexy, appealing, superior resorts we have traveled to, and now one of our favorites.  This AAA Four Diamond adults-only all-inclusive resort is about a 40 minute drive north from the Cancun Airport (map), and feels like a world away from stress and life.  With gourmet dining, sexy ambiance, powdery two-mile stretch of beach and relaxation everywhere.. it was really hard to leave! Even HE was totally enamored,  which coming from a guy who just needs sand and a cold beer.. that's impressive! 

 

THE RESORT

HIS VIEW - I was kind of hoping I skipped the rest of reality and went to heaven. Spectacular tropical layout. Not pretentious but very elegant. Couldn’t have asked for more but maybe time.

HER VIEW  - Ok,I am a little tongue tied trying to describe this place! There is a reason they call it "Excellence"..every where you look there is a place to relax and indulge on food and drinks and be pampered with superior service.  The resort is not too big,and with separate buildings and pools everywhere it feels just perfect for privacy or activities whenever you want. 

 

 

THE ROOM

HIS VIEW - The balcony was the real deal, with a bed that got used. Top shelf spirits at hand, and bonus…. 2 bottles at end of stay based on our daily bar orders. Perfect in 567 ways.  

HER VIEW  - We had a room which overlooked one of the pool areas and the comfy day-bed on the balcony was unreal.  Probably more comfortable than some hotel room beds, and very secluded and private from the neighboring balconies so its perfect if you want to enjoy the ocean/tropical air, and enjoy a little cuddle time under a blanket.  Her Tip:  Upgrade to the Ocean Front, or better yet the 2-story suite with private plunge pool.  If you are going to indulge, this is the place to do it! 

 

 

 

THE GROUNDS

HIS VIEW - Tropical awesome

HER VIEW  - Seriously every where you look there is some sexy relaxation area available, from pool-side rooms with sun-beds, pool floaties, to over-water hammocks and private bed cabanas.  There is NO excuse not to find a comfy place to relax.  The grounds were kept clean and gorgeous, every surface always clean.  

 

 

THE FOOD

HIS VIEW -  Fantastic. There wes this lady who made 12 pounds of Guacamole at our table and we ate 11 pounds of it! Super good.

HER VIEW  - Ok seriously...bring your appetite! This is not the place to visit and be on a diet or you will miss out. 

The Grill Restaurant- over looking the main pool area is where I indulged on probably the best Pastor Tacos I have ever eaten, but I have to admit HIS Burger was pretty great too.

Barcelona Restaurant - had the pleasure of experiencing real Mexican food, plus the chef came table-side to make fresh guacamole, sadly I think I gained a couple pounds from this delicious meal. 

Spice Restaurant - Ok, this was HIS pick of a restaurant that night, honestly I was excited due to the limited menu.  However, HE does prove me wrong sometimes (not often!) and I really enjoyed our Teriyaki meal.  

Room Service - super speedy, and the food arrived hot and perfect! Hard to find with room service.  

HER TIP: Don't miss the coffee shop - they have much more than espressos, with all-day snacks including Focaccia sandwhiches, desserts and pastries. Also, indulge in the beach-side wood-fired pizzas, or the self-serve soft serve ice cream located near the entertainment venue. 

 

 

THE DRINKS

HIS VIEW - There is a picture on our balcony that featured a “smattering” of our daily offerings. Done!

HER VIEW  - Full bottle top-shelf liquor of every kind you can imagine will be in your room!  Didn't know my name by the end of the trip and it was worth it.  Also, there are several bar areas inside and out for your pleasure at any time.
