Resort Profile

An outstanding adults-only, all-inclusive resort away from the bustle of Cancun’s Hotel Zone, Excellence Playa Mujeres caters very well to couples and honeymooners; it’s one of the most luxurious options in the Cancun vicinity north of the Riviera Maya. While quiet, the beach here isn’t quite as strong as those in the Hotel Zone (this is the only factor keeping the Overall Beach Resort Rating below Aaa); but the resort offers seven upscale swimming pools, ten restaurants with excellent food for an all-inclusive, a serene beach with palapas for shade, and robust fitness and spa facilities. Guests praise the overall service; the staff here is extremely friendly and accommodating. Suites are luxurious and spacious. Some come with swim-up access or plunge pools; two-story rooftop terrace suites with plunge pools and ocean views are also available. Upgrading to Excellence Club status gives you access to larger suites and exclusive pool and restaurant areas. Activities include dance classes, cooking classes, yoga and Pilates classes, live entertainment and theme nights, bilingual bike tours, archery, air rifle shooting, water aerobics, and water polo. Other activities include shared or private deep sea fishing charters (for barracuda, grouper, and snapper, among more), dinner or sunset sailboat or catamaran cruises, private tennis lessons, and shipwreck dives and shallow night dive tours. The Greg Norman-designed Playa Mujeres Golf Club next door is one of the top courses in Mexico.

The Excellence Collection has partnered with certified local labs to provide complimentary COVID-19 tests for guests whose home countries require a negative result to board a return flight. Testing is available on-site and free of charge (antigen tests for the US and UK, PCR tests for Canada).

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
