I am picky. This place was perfect. They say ‘no’ to nothing - only ‘yes’! And with a smile. Services and facility were amazing. Very high standard. Felt safe there. Food is out of this world. Cant wait to go back for round two.

Hotel's Favorite
Just finished a 5 night stay in a rooftop terrace with excellence club, building 8 Room: we loved it. The room was clean in great co condition. We didn’t use the roof top as much as we thought but it was a nice place to relax later in the afternoon. I’m not sure we would pay the extra again for the RTT but it was great to have. The bed was very comfy compared to other Mexican resorts Grounds and pools: absolutely gorgeous, clean and well manicured. Zero complaints. We didn’t spend a ton of time on the beach but there was some seaweed but nothing excessive. Food: I am by no means a foodie and can be picky sometimes but we loved the food. Flavor market was probably our favorite. The meat and cheese board was perfect. We had agave our last full night and it did not disappoint. I had chicken flautas and wife had fajitas. Both had great flavor. Other restaurants we hit up were, spice, magna, lobster house. For lunch we did pizza multiple times by the main pool and it was delicious. Las olas had great food and speedy service for a snack by the pool Drinks: we drank way too many! I drank a lot of mimosas and icebergs that were all tasty. Wife had a lot of mojitos. We had no issue with them not being strong enough. Spa: did the hydro therapy (kinda different but kinda fun) also had a 70 minute couples massage that was perfect. No complaints except maybe the price lol Service: by far the best we have ever had at an all inclusive. Drinks constantly being brought to us, rarely had to actually go to the bar. All very friendly and happy to help. Only real negatives: had to go to second choices for dinner a few times because we didn’t double check what nights they were closed. No biggie. Steaks at all inclusive always disappoint compared to us steak houses. Not a huge deal as I expected that going in. Just don’t get your hopes up. We have done all inclusive 5-6 times previously including sandals. In our opinion it blew sandals out of the water from top to bottom. We would definitely book again

We were greeted with sparkling wine as we stepped through the front doors. After a quick check-in, we were escorted to our room. Along the way, Daniel pointed out restaurant and pool locations. Note: the mobile app is easy to use for restaurant hours and locations along with daily activities. We took advantage of the water toys offered by Aqua World. Tony took us out on a hobi cat to see the sea turtles! All in all a wonderful time. Beautifully maintained and clean resort! Amazing dining choices, all with delicious food! Excellent friendly service! We will be back!!

There is not a bad thing I could say about this place. After being there only an hour, my wife made a comment "I feel like I am in Heaven" and she was not wrong. From the service, to the food, to the beaches and more, there was not a single thing I could complain about. It was so much fun, we didn't have to lift a finger the whole stay. The only thing i wish we could do was stay longer, we will be back and hopefully as soon as this year or next.

WARNING - thus resort received a double booking for me from an online travel company, now they are treating the second booking as a no-show even though when I checked in they promised to fix the situation and said their business office would refund me. I am 2+ weeks out and they are still holding $1600 that belongs to me. Literally an online glitch. I’ve been on with Amex and them daily. I hate to give them a bad review because the people were amazing and the resort is so nice, but I would not stay here again. There was also a couple checking in when I was checking out and their suite had been given away. As wonderful as the people are who work here the management of the business is seriously flawed.

We went to Playa Mujeres Excellence for our one year anniversary and it did not disappoint. As soon as you walk in the amazing scent hits you and the ambiance and modern look of the resort will also stand out to you! We loved our room, it was a junior suite and we really didn’t need anything more since we were out at the pool and beach the majority of the time. The drinks and food were amazing and the staff never hesitated in making sure you were always hydrated. We loved visiting the The Grill for lunch and the Lobster House for breakfast. Three workers at the Lobster House during breakfast time that stood out to us was Miguel (older gentleman and wears glasses) and Guadalupe, the young woman Abigail was also very sweet and caring! The two gentlemen were not only hilarious but very personable and great to talk to. It was also nice to have the option to tip those who went above and beyond so make sure you have some cash on you but the workers will also have change you can ask for. We visited Spice, The Lobster House, Basmati, THE BEST INDIAN FOOD, The Grill, the Food Shack, THE BEST HOT DOGS and Aroma. You will not be disappointed. Entertainment was also a lot of fun with live shows and a DJ. The African Acrobats were really talented as well. All in all this trip was worth it and I will be back again with family or friends!

We booked our trip to EPM in March. We enjoyed reading and learning from everyone’s feedback as we counted down to our stay. And now… we can share our impressions! We’ve typically been cruisers. This was our first visit to an all-inclusive resort. We are so glad that we selected this one. From the start… the staff was outstanding. Friendly, responsive and fun. It definitely makes a difference. We stayed in a swim-up suite. It was one of the prettiest places that we’ve stayed. It was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing in the water by our room after a long day at the main pool. We had so much fun at the main pool. It is a good idea to head over early to claim your desired chairs. If crowds are not your thing – then you have so many other pool locations to enjoy or places on the beach to relax. We thought the bar staff and pool-side servers were great. David always was ready to make a gin & tonic for me. Our favorite restaurant was the Flavor Market – so many different things to try! I’d say our 2nd favorite was Spice. Very good sushi. We enjoyed the Lobster House and the Grill as well. We ate breakfast each morning at Toscana’s buffet. So many choices that we were never disappointed. Aroma has gelato and other desserts. Revive Juice bar was very good. Martini bar was always fun. We might not have cared for everything that we tried, but that is why you try things. All in all – we thought the food and beverages were very good. Using Seasons for the safe & secure transportation to/from the airport. It was quick and easy. Highly recommended. Pro Tips: • Bring your own straws if that is how you prefer drinking your beverages • Bring your Yeti type cups for your drinks. It is Mexico. It is hot. We enjoyed having our beverages stay cold longer. • Try the Water Zumba...Marco is so much fun. • Bring cash for tipping. USD is fine. These folks work so hard. Our last half hour at EPM – we decided to go to the Martini bar for one last beverage. We order two tropical drinks. Our bartender Ana made the best drinks. She was so sweet asking about our time at the resort and wishing us well until we returned. We will return…..

We just got back from this resort after spending 8 days there. The resort is gorgeous and it is impeccable clean. The staff is really on top of it. The rooms were immaculate clean and they all have been sanitized, the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The food was incredible delicious, I recommend the Italian, the French, the Hibachi, the Grill and my favorite one the Lobster. We ate at the Lobster 3 times, that is how good it was. I am picky when it comes to food, but this resort has been the best when it comes to delicious food. Their staff is extremely friendly and they will go out of their way to please you. The night shows are expectacular, specially the African one. I highly recommend booking through them directly because they have their own private transportation and it is free, very nice and clean SUV. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because of their limited premium drinks. The only premium Vodka they had was Tito's and Black Label, however not all the bars had it. However, I must give them credit because they went out of their way and would get for me. We love to have dinner with a nice bottle of red wine, the wine that they had was a cheap one Concha y Toro. I was also disappointed with their beer, they only had Dos Equis (XX). They told me that they have had a hard time after the pandemic getting premium liquor, but I guess it has been easier getting the cheap ones. Their drinks was the only letdown I had especially being an upscale resort.
