Excellence Resorts Info.

Recommended Posts

I am planning on getting married in the beginning of 2009 and we are going to do a site visit this June. I really liked the Excellence Resort, but I have noticed that not alot of people have considored this resort. I am starting to second guess it! If anyone has any information they could share about ERC resorts I would greatly appreciate it. Finding a resort is sooooo hard!

I love the Excellence resorts too but will have my wedding in Punta Cana becuase I love the beach there.

My guess that not a lot of people are using it because a) it is an adult only resort and B) it is a little more expensive than the resorts.

Don't know about Riviera Maya but the brides who married at Excellence Punta Cana had only great things to say about their wedding, great experience all around, not to mention that Excellence is #1 resort in Punta Cana and has voted one of the romantic resort in the caribbean.

The new Excellence Playa Mujeres just opened this past November and is supposed to be wonderful. There are several reviews and lots of pictures on Trip Advisor. We would get married there, but it's adults only and my nephews are coming. We are going there for our honeymoon, though.

I am definitely considering Excellence as well, although it sounds like they have several weddings per day, so you may be one of several brides getting married that day.

 

I think somebody mentioned that they got a "wedding factory" feel from Excellence on their site visit...

My son honeymooned at the Excellence Riviera Cancun and they LOVED it. They were pampered and treated like royalty. If they had to do it over, they would go there again in a heartbeat. It's more expensive than alot of the other resorts, but it's really, really nice. I'm sure the Punta Cana one is fairly comparable.

I'm also considering the Excellence Riviera Cancun. Are you sure they allow multiple weddings a day?

I am not sure how many weddings they hold a day. I am going this June for a site visit so I will get all the details. I know that there will be a wedding going on while I am there. I will give you all the details when I come back. Let me know if you have any other questions and I will try my best to get some answers. This is the only resort that I have really, really liked. All of its reviews on trip advisor are very consistant. Plus I have had several friends go here and absolutely love it.

 

If you check out Sol Tamargo's blog you can find pictures of a wedding that took place here. It looks beautiful!!!!!!!!!!! Let me know what you decide!!!

Thanks,

Jen

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
