Hotel Description

Excellence Riviera Cancun: Indulge in All-Inclusive Luxury

Immerse yourself in luxury at the all-inclusive Excellence Riviera Cancun, an adult-only resort located on Mexico's Riviera Maya coast. This Mediterranean-style resort of stucco, tile and marble is situated on a pristine white-sand beach. Secluded, but not isolated, the resort is close to Cancun, Playa del Carmen and ancient Mayan ruins, so exploring is simple. With all the included activities, though, it's understandable if you never venture off the grounds.

Six pools meander around Excellence Riviera Cancun, covering over 77,800 square feet amidst a tropical background. Float up to the swim-up bar for drinks, lounge under an umbrella, or take advantage of poolside waiter service. Three Jacuzzis provides a stunning view and two pools by the spa are perfect for a post-massage dip. If an ocean view is more your speed, head to the immaculate shore and set up camp on a beach lounge. You'll enjoy a thatched-roof umbrella, towel and waiter service.

Access the spa directly via the swimming pool. Situated in a lush garden setting, private treatment cabins are available for individuals and couples. The Miile Spa, dedicated to rejuvenation of body and spirit, offers a number of unique treatments including the renowned Temazcal treatment that draws upon ancient Aztec rituals.

When you work up an appetite, head to one of nine restaurants for global cuisine and impeccable service. Chez Isabelle, the signature French restaurant, transports you to the Left Bank with classically prepared French cuisine like roasted duck in red wine and venison sauteed with wild mushrooms. Fresh seafood is served up at The Lobster House, where a casual, welcome ambiance sets the stage for some of the best shrimp and lobster in the area. Other options include Indian, Italian, pan-Asian and modern American.

Waking up and winding down is delightful at Excellence Riviera Cancun, and you'll rest in a room equipped with a giant four-poster king bed, along with marble bathrooms and stunning views over the grounds and the ocean. Unwind in your personal hammock, or take advantage of a swim-up suite, where the pool is just eight ft from your private terrace.

  • Full breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks each day
