There are few things more romantic than walking hand-in-hand along a tropical beach with the one you love. Excellence Riviera Cancun provides the powder white private beach as well as a wealth of luxurious amenities to complete a dreamy Caribbean getaway. The AAA 4-Diamond all-inclusive resort is for adults only, catering to couples.
The Mediterranean-style property features stucco, tile and marble décor set against six river-like pools, five outdoor Jacuzzis, jogging trails weaving through its jungle and hammocks strung from palm trees for siestas in the sunshine. Miilé Spa offers a lavish menu focused on Aqua Wellness treatments for an additional fee while guests have free, unlimited access to its pools and sports facilities.
Visitors check into suites with king-size four-poster beds, two-person whirlpool tubs, marble baths, and furnished balconies or patios. To really feel like royalty, guests can upgrade to the Honeymoon Suite with an open-air shower and plunge pool looking out at the ocean. All room rates include complimentary Wi-Fi.
All-inclusive rates include unlimited meals at eight restaurants serving Italian, Asian, Mexican, Indian, French and American cuisine. Unlike many all-inclusive resorts, dinner reservations are not accepted, instead Excellence promotes spontaneity on vacation. Guests also enjoy cocktails at the hotel’s 10 bars and delivered directly to beachside palapas.
For fun in the sun, guests have the option of kayaking, volleyball, tennis and archery. After dark, the resort hosts nightly live entertainment and dancing lessons. From the hotel, Playa del Carmen is a 35-minute drive, Cancun is 45 minutes and Tulum is 90 minutes away.
