    Hi Ladies,

    Both of the Excellence Resorts have a lot of similarities in the way the lobby bar is set up with that impressive lobby and entry, and the way the rooms are set up and configured.

    Differences in location.. Excellence Playa Mujeres is north of the airport, and to get there you are driving through a more of a neighborhood and city... PM is a very up and coming area though, with great beach and protected from waves by the fact that Isla Mujeres sits right off the coast. If anyone is interested in doing whale shark tour or other sailing trip you are right next to the little La Amada Marina so convenient for that...

    Excellence RC is south, and a straight shot on the highway to get there.. maybe a little quicker drive.

    Both are equal in wedding venues, great restaurants, and entertainment.

    If you would like photos just let me know... Wright Travel has a great relationship with Excellence group and can also help if you are not getting prompt reply from the wedding department if you are not receiving quick replies.

    Hi! Weird question, but where and when did your photographer that you brought in eat?

    Hi!

     

    My wedding is in January and it's that time for me to fill out the questionnaire.

    I know that food preference is subjective but does anyone have any suggestions regarding the food at the reception?

    We loved the food we had in Excellence Punta Cana but hated the food we had at the wedding there. Unfortunately I think we would choose the same menu for our wedding in Playa Mujeres. I've started telling guests to eat first. But that's a horrible thing considering we have to pay extra. Does anyone have any tips/suggestions?

     

    Also, Has anyone used the in house photography company?

     

    Thanks for input!

    @EJanfsk what did your friends choose for the meal at their Excellence Punta Cana wedding?

    Our wedding coordinator has asked us to think about what we would like to have served as well - and I'm undecided. Since we have decided to have our reception on the beach and will have between 70-80 people, I think a buffet setup would probably be better than a plated meal.

    Our coordinator recommended that we choose one of the buffet options with the open grills because it looks really beachy / fun. Hopefully this isn't what your friend had! :)

    For photography, I looked through some of the resort's photographers' albums and ultimately chose FineArt Studio.

    @EJanfsk I'm getting married there next week if you want a food review, we chose the avocado soup, the citrus salad, the beef and scallop entree

    @AshleyRupple that is not what they had. I think a buffet option sounds great! We are only having about 40 people so I don't think they would let us do that. 

     

    @malyna, Next week? Congrats! I can't wait to hear how that menu works out. The beef and scallop entree is the only option we were considering too. 

     

    Thanks!

    Hey Everyone! Wedding was wonderful :) It rained during the evening, which was disappointing to have the reception inside, but it was perfect otherwise. I guess that's what I get for planning a wedding toward the end of hurricane season. lol. here's some pics the photog put up already, feel free to private message me with any questions as I probably won't be visiting the forums as often... I will post a detailed review once I write it up.

     

    though a lot of the photos are the same on both sites, there are some on the blog that aren't on fb and vice versa
