We spent a week at ERC and had a great time. The Brisa Couples Ritual at the spa was one of the best spa experiences we've ever had (shout out to Rosario & Faby). The resort had fun stuff constantly going on, and the food was great! The only gripe we had was that the system for reservations was very scattered and ineffective. We wanted to add a night to our stay, and there was no easy way to do it at the front desk or with concierge, we had to literally book a new reservation, pack our bags, switch rooms, check out of the old room and check into the new room etc. Also we had a confirmation email for our spa appointment and when we showed up they didn't have us in the system for the correct day, so we had to postpone it to a later day. Lastly, they gave us a voucher for a romantic dinner by the beach (which isn't a normal thing that is included). We booked it with the concierge and they confirmed our reservation, but when we showed up for it they said there was not a reservation. Everything else about the stay was awesome, but those three things certainly were headaches.

Hotel's Favourite
The fun yet laid-back and professional atmosphere here made this a positive experience. We enjoyed the gym in the early mornings, the modified method for the breakfast buffet where all of the options are still there you just don’t serve yourself, the wide variety of lounge chair options/areas, The impressive evening performances, comfortable room (club level ocean view I think), Quality food options including vegetarian ones (except at Las Olas), and most notably, the wonderful and kind staff. Though overall the food may be somewhat better at Beloved, the facilities here are more impressive and varied. Luis at the club pool saved me my first day when I was sad about not finding healthy vegetarian food yet. He solved my worries with genuine care and continued to be kind and helpful throughout. Amable also at the club pool was cheery and enthusiastic and happy to provide Spanish assistance and humor as well as drinks. Lucia in the club lounge provided kind yet subtle assistance with whatever snacks or drinks I wanted. Thank you so much!

We return again and again, now thankfully vaccinated and post-pandemic for us. The staff and leadership team were at their best, despite the probably many hardships for them and their families. As usual our every request was met with a smile and exemplary service. This cannot be said enough, the Excellence staff both here and Playa Majeures (have vacationed that property many times as well) offer the best in hospitality, warmth and service. A shout out to Benito and Guillermo who served our every whim at the pool and beach. Wish I had taken notes on everyone's names, the many hostesses, servers, housekeepers we interacted with but all were spectacular. We of course left gratuity's but they were all so good recognition is deserved by name. From the pools, to the beach, to the dining rooms and outdoor dining options, bell staff and front desk to housekeeping everyone is so welcoming, truly caring about delivering the best in guest services. During our next visit (In December!) I will do better noting names of the great personnel. The rooms are spotless and taken care of at our convenience every day with plentiful towels, sundries, snacks, coffee and alcohol. The food was spectacular. We LOVE the Lobster House, Isabelle (French) and Spice so much that during our 5 nights simply rotated rather than head to other offerings (call us lazy). Plus we really enjoy the beach pizza and beach themed meals each day. The consistency over the years of the food quality is outstanding. We missed not serving ourselves at the breakfast buffet but thanks to Covid restrictions the eager and wonderful service people supply everything you ask for as you approach each station at the abundant, scrumptious buffet. And the truth is it probably paid off in us not overeating as we often do at the Excellence Buffets!! How often do you vacation and know leadership by name and they yours? Fatima Young Guest Service manager was always greeting us warmly and available for any request throughout the property. She went out of her way to be of service, treating us like family. Paul Castillo Food & Beverage Guest Relations visited us as we dined, checking on our experience, always asking how he could be of service during our current or upcoming meals. Paul always made us feel so special. Carolina Paz is Assistant General Manager, a leader who we had interacted with at the Playa Majeures property in the past, Riviera Cancun is fortunate to have her as she is an exceptional leader. The property is gorgeous, the foliage, the beaches and pool areas as well as the rooms/suites are over the top wonderful. Our favorite beach destination for over 10 years, except for the pandemic visiting at minimum twice a year.

Our trip was amazing from top to bottom the entertainment staff were especially great! Christian, Javier and Salvador were full of energy and enough smiles to make everyone have a good time! Plus when they weren’t entertaining us they made us feel at home and opened up about there lives if you asked! Great humans and I’m proud to have met them! The food was amazing and also the facility and location are gorgeous! The spa was a real treat! I highly recommend the Aqua therapy!

We went to Playa Muejers location for our honeymoon. Loved it. Tried Cancun Riviera Maya location May 2021. Was lovely! Only complaint was the seaweed. PM Location also had the seaweed and we had hoped Cancun Riviera Maya would have been better. It was worse. To be clear, it's smelly and in copious amounts which rules out the ocean for swimming. Some days we could smell it from the pools. It's not their fault, I know, but it is relevant in respect to enjoyment. If you're looking for beach swimming, skip this location and the PM one. If you're looking for top notch food and service in an adult only environment, clean and safe, this is the place!!! They have a ton of pools and a lazy river. So again, 5 stars. We'd go back but if you want the ocean and blue water to swim in, it won't be here 😔 Another couple we met said the Punta Cana location had clear beaches without the seaweed. We will try them next! I would recco Riviera Maya location. Bring your own straws as they do not provide them. Sexy Bridge was our fav 'game'. We laughed til our faces hurt. I wish I knew the name of the song they played for Sexy Bridge. If anyone knows, please reply with it ☺
