Excellence Riviera Cancun question/info?

Recommended Posts

i haven't been there but i can tell you that my best friend had her honeymoon there in October and loved it. Also when I was trying to decide where to have my June wedding, my travel agent who has been everywhere in the area recommended the el dorado properties and the excellence resort. she had a destination wedding and she said if she knew then what she knows now she would have chosen either of those two, so i would say that is a pretty good review!

Don't know about Excellence Cancun but I am getting married @ Excellence Punta Cana. The brides that I have talked to have nothing but high praises about their wedding.

 

They just have one wedding a day and it is truly special :-) I cannot think of any other place but Excellence for my wedding.

 

Happy planning!

Im leaving El Dorado for several reasons

 

1) the beach is a disaster, and the beach is important to me. WHen I booked this, Yes, I did do research, but my travel agent really minimized it (I also felt rushed into makeing a choice on where)

 

2) they totally are nickle and diming. Yes, there have been talks about the $500 for outside photographers, but its more then that. I just read a review on trip advisor where they noted being charged extra for EVERYTHING.

 

3) The places has dropped in its rank on trip advisor over the past three motnhs, from 2nd, to 3rd and now 4th.

 

4) atleast 50% of the reviews on trip advisor recently are very negative

 

5) the price even keeps dropping.

 

It just feels like the hotel is going down hill

and that things that are important to me (like a beach) are real strong negatives ....

 

So, I am resaerching other places at the moment!

Thanks for your help

 

I find it odd no one here has gone there .... that is a red flag to me.
