During this blessed season of giving, consider gifting an experience. A great experience gift is a destination trip, a staycation, or travel to a resort. And what a great way to celebrate a milestone birthday, an anniversary, a girls’ trip, or a gift just to say, “I love you!”

Recently one of our team experienced an incredible celebratory trip to The Excellence Resort in Playa Mujeres Cancun, Mexico. On the beautiful Caribbean playground, boasting of white sands and a clear blue sea, the all-inclusive, all-adult, and all-suite resort was just what was needed for a relaxing gift. To unplug and not think about paying for anything while at the resort can offer the fabulous opportunity to “just be”. So we thought we’d share the experience with our readers.

The Excellence Resort at Playa Mujeres features a variety of restaurants that are included in the price of your stay. From gorgeous breakfast buffets to light lunches beach-side to a fine-dining lobster dinner in the evening – those are just some of the selections in the thirteen restaurants, twelve bars and assorted pop-up carts. You never have to eat the same meal twice and your taste buds will thank you for the wide range of choices. Be sure to stop by the fresh coconut juice bar for an extra treat!

Relaxing on the beach for a chair massage or enjoying the swim-up pool outside your room will have you relaxed and enjoying the downtime away from home. If you want to be more adventurous, the resort offers many excursions, a gym, as well as beach and water activities. The Excellence Resort has opportunities to enjoy private beaches, pools and clubs as well as areas in which to mix and mingle with other guests. Our traveler experienced a sense of uncrowded seclusion on the expansive beachfront even though there were lots of guests staying in the resort.

There is nightlife in this gated resort, including wonderful variety shows, venues for dancing and even a Silent Disco Party. This is a “thing”: three DJs play three different types of music. The guests wear headphones and dance to their choice of music. What an unusual sight to hear nothing in the room but see people dancing to all types of music at the same time!

The Excellence Resort offers a variety of elevated packages for your stay. The service at the resort is excellent and the staff
goes out of their way to make sure you have the best experience ever. Special touches include a welcome banner for
newlyweds and guests celebrating wedding anniversaries. Our guest was greeted in the room by fresh flowers, favorite desserts and champagne. For those making reservations at one of the restaurants, the service is impeccable and the table can be festooned with rose petals.

What a great place in which to celebrate life!
