Best Staff And Resort in Mexico

Came here for 5 days and I definitely plan on coming back. This is without a doubt one of the nicest resorts I have ever been too. Every single staff member is friendly and caring. The food is top notch and the service just as good. The activities when run by Alfonso and Miranda are amazing. You can order room service 24 hours. In door seating requires pants worn by men. So bring a pair if you are coming here. The room was always spotless and the mini bar always refilled. Make sure you go kayaking and eat at Spice. Come down to Mexico and experience this incredible resort

Fantastic hotel!

This place blew us away. The rooms were spacious and clean and the minibar was restocked daily with snacks and drinks. The facilities were first rate. The food is fantastic, the French restaurant was our favourite and my husband is still thinking about the lamb. But the staff made the place. The level of service was beyond our expectations, everyone greeted you with a smile and worked so hard to provide us with the best holiday. We had a storm whilst we were there and I couldn't believe how hard they worked to keep the place perfect. My only critique was that we couldn't get good wi-fi in our room but it worked fine around the rest of the resort. We hope to visit again.

Incredible service

Just got back a week ago from this Excellence Club. A little tricky arriving at the airport....make sure your talking to the right company that is suppose to take you to the facility. We stayed at the Excellence Club level which I recommend....the private(club members pool area is a little less crowded, the bar service is better for that fact. The food and comfort of the excellence club(private to members) is very good.Room was very nice, very clean.....units have two jacuzzi's, one in room, one on balcony...balcony had beautiful view of grounds and gulf. Bar is well stocked and and you can exchange bottles you do not like. Good snacks in fridge.one Warning, do not keep sliding door open, the condensation that forms on the floor is dangerousFood is very good, not excellent but very good. Barcelona for breakfast is just an incredible huge buffet.....eggs, omellets, meats, mexican food, cheeses, champagne...I cannot list the food items there...literally a 100 choices if not moreFavor restaurants were Spice, Agave, Tapas Restaurant and Lobster house.Room Service I must say was ok, not very goodService was incredible, polite to the extreme. Would recommend tipping people $3-5 and service is even better.Facility is amazing clean.Cannot recommend it enough

Amazing.

This place is absolutely amazing from head to toe! The service is impeccable and like no other resort we have ever stayed on. The food was beyond measurable! We had two specific waiters that have stayed in our mind and did everything for us. Fidel at the pool and Gernado at the main square area. Fidel was extremely attentive to us the entire time and always came back with a surprise drink which made us happy. He went above and beyond his service to make sure we were happy throughout the day. Gernado is a hard worker and never made us wait for a drink even one it was very crowded. He works fast and diligently and loves his job. We are getting married here next year and we have made the best decision ever. The wedding planner makes it feel like you have the only wedding in the world that's going on. There are so many amenities that are included with the packages and we are very overwhelmed with everything, in a good way. We can't wait to come back here next year to get married! We will be looking for our favorite bartender/drink waiter! See you next year !!!!!!!

Fantastic vacation!! Everything was PERFECT!!

Just returned from an unbelievable vacation at Excellence Riviera Cancun. Hotel room was the best I had ever stayed in and had an incredible view of the resort.
