Venue Feature: Excellence Riviera Cancun


This past March I had the opportunity to visit and meet with the local wedding coordinators at some of the top hotels in Cancun and the Riviera Maya.

One of my favourite properties toured was the 5* adults only Excellence Riviera Cancun. Located just a short 20 minute drive from the airport, the Excellence is perfect for those looking for romance & relaxation, in a luxury resort setting.

I had the pleasure of meeting with Jessica Moreno, one of the onsite wedding planners. Jessica’s soft spoken demeanor and the love of her job shines through and can calm any brides pre-wedding nerves.

The Excellence offers wedding ceremonies on the beach, at the Gazebo, as well as at a unique pier location. Private receptions can be held at Garibaldi’s Court, Las Olsas at the Beach, Fridays only at Agave, or Monday & Friday’s at the Lobster House.¬†Wedding packages can be free at property if the Bride & Groom confirm an Excellence Club Junior Suite Oceanview room, or have a minimum of 5 rooms in any category for 7 nights.

The free package covers just 10 guests, but you can upgrade to the more deluxe “Excellence Love” and “Excellence Gold” packages by paying the difference. ¬†These packages would then cover 20 guests and include extras such as a cocktail party, private reception, bridal hair & makeup, and even photo and video coverage. Extra guest fees would apply for groups larger than 20.

The Excellence Riviera Cancun does just one wedding per day on average, with never more than two in peak season. This allows the wedding coordinators and staff to give their complete attention to your Big Day, and ensure you feel as special as any bride would want.

Nicole’s Opinion

Best Feature: Hotel – Elegant, luxury adults only experience. Close to airport. Incredible beach, gardens & fabulous room options available.
Best Feature: Weddings – Usually just one wedding per day. Upgrading the free package to more deluxe options is affordable, and are very comprehensive with inclusions.
Best Feature: Location – Offers the best of both worlds, modern conveniences yet still traditional Mexican and Mayan cultures. English is widely spoken. Extensive variety of day trips or excursions available.
Personal Tip: Be sure to have some photos at the Spa Terrace… gorgeous!

Overall, I LOVED the Excellence both for personal vacations, as well as an adult only venue for destination wedding groups. Have questions or would like more information on this great property? Just drop me a line, or give me a call and I’d be excited to tell you more!

Happy Planning!
