Remarks:
"We arrived on Friday the 8th of June and stayed until the 14th. From the moment we got out of the airport and away from the time-share hustlers we found our contact with our names on a paper. He explained what would be happening and when. Our driver showed up within minutes in a very nice SUV, loaded up our luggage and took us straight to the resort. We was greeted at the gates by security and by smiling faces everywhere, everyone was so friendly it was unreal. Everything was extremely clean and in order, the people went out of their way to help us in any way possible. I will say this was the best experience yet in all of our years of vacationing. I would recommend this resort to anyone who wants the experience of a lifetime with an all-adult all-inclusive resort. And by saying that we did not have to listen a bunch of screaming kids running around and hogging or tashing everything. Loved every minute of it and we will go back."

"We have been to the Bahamas and another Cancun resort but this was by far the best. Entertainment was good along with the many restaurant options. The staff was amazing especially Carla and Guiselle from the concierge pool staff and the club bar staff led by the wonderful mable and moses. The whole staff was very special and a credit to a very well managed resort. We will never forget all of you and definitely want to come back. We could not ask for a better vacation. Happy new year to all. love, " Joe and Lisa from New Castle, Delaware

"Everyone at the resort are wonderful. Very friendly, very helpful and fun people. They understand English better than I can speak/understand Spanish. I go every year. The only thing that I would love to see.....the pool with the bar....it should be heated. In March there wasn't many people at the pool....too cold. If it was heated, you couldn't go near the pool bar!! Otherwise, a perfect vacation as always!! Going back in December. Thank you." - Frany from Piscataway, New Jersey

The resort was gorgeous, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, and you are treated like royalty from the moment you walk in the door. Would highly recommend this resort and hope to go back sometime soon!" - Natalie from Lexington, Kentucky

"This was my second trip to Mexico and my wifes 11th ( travel industry ) anyway, this resort is truely amazing. The food is decedent, the staff are so friendly that you want to sneak them into your luggage and take them home with you....seriously!!! We stayed in a ocean-view swim up suite with the Excellence package and the view was like something out of a postcard. We checked in and it had just finished raining, we saw a rainbow over the ocean and my wife told me she saw a sea turtle swimming by but my eyes are bad so I just agreed with her. The entertainment was second to none and even our waiter was dancing like a crazy man. The pools were beautiful but a little cold. A few premium drinks took care of that though, along with my fear of European speedos. My wife and I are already talking about our next anniversary trip to the Excellence Cancun. Pay the extra and live la vida loca!!!! You only get to go through this life once. Dance you fool!!" - Terry from Boston, Mass

"Beautiful"
- Vicki from Springfield, Tennesee
Remarks:
"We celebrated our 4th anniversary and have never experienced such a romantic atmosphere as we did with Excellence. We were greeted at check-in with a glass of champagne. We were pampered and catered to, never wanting for anything. The room was exquisite with rose petals on the bed, luxurious bath robes and slippers, bowl of fresh fruit and bottle of champagne on the table. We thoroughly enjoyed the in-room jacuzzi along with breakfast in the room whenever we so desired. The bellmen were very informative and courteous and they remembered our names throughout our stay. Our main bellman was Jose and he often stopped to greet us throughout our visit. The restaurants offered a variety of delectable food with most time, more than we could consume. We also experienced a variety of atmospheres like French, Mexican, Mediterranean, Asian, etc. They do stick to their dress code requirements which is quite nice. The waiters were friendly, courteous and very attentive. The night of our anniversary, they placed rose petals on our table which made for even a more romantic evening. During the 4 day stay, we heard 3 different music groups to include Caribbean, Mariachi, Latin/rock along with an awesome violinist in the Martini Bar. The beach was beautiful and there was always space to lay out. Waiters again catered, assuring we had adequate beverages throughout the entire time we were out in the sun. Walking on the beach at night was simply beautiful. Excellence is spread out over a large area so you never feel like it is crowded even though there were alot of people there in June. If you are looking for a romantic getaway with adults-only and everything all-inclusive, we highly recommend Excellence. We also recommend Go Away Travel who booked our trip for us and did an excellent job. Kudos to Brenda Troy. We also want to recommend using Olympus Tours who handled our transportation from airport to hotel along with a Cancun tour. We are looking forward to booking another trip next year only with a longer stay" - Vicki from Springfield, Tennesee

"My new bride and I were there on our honeymoon during the last month or so of the old "Secrets Excellence". I have not been back since then, since the take-over and re-naming of the resort. That being said, I will tell you that no other vacation we take from this point on can ever compare to the Excellence. We paid a little extra for the Honeymoon Package and the Swim-out room. We also paid for the "Excellence Club" and it was worth every dime. I had absolutely NO complaints about the place, not one, seriously. My wife and I are picky people too! We had the best honeymoon one can ever dream of. Everything we wanted was ours at any time of the day. The beach was in good shape, the pools were amazing, and the entertainment was incredible...there was literally ALWAYS something to do...or eat. I truly hope that the resort has not changed at all with the new title and ownership because we DEFINITELY are going back for our 5 year anniversary...well maybe our 1 year...if we can get the time off from this place they call "work." - Mike from East Hartford, CT

"This resort was my first in Mexico and my wife's 5th. The standard from vacationing at this resort has set the standard. To be honest everyone I spoke to at the resort compared it to most of the resorts that they have been to and stated that it was the best all-inclusive resort by far. I would recommend this resort to anyone." - Juan from Hampton, Virginia
