Yes, Excellence is right next to DRC. I think I might look for something in Playa del Carmen...maybe The Royal Play del Carmen. This was one of the places I had looked at for a wedding but it was adults only and was a little more pricey for guests.

I have seen it at other resorts and just makes it look a little prettier! Also i have a worry about not being able to make reservations at the restaurants. I would hate for my family and friends to wait hours for their evening meal. 30 - 45mins is ok but i have read bad reviews on this, anyone else have the same worry??
I think you can have whatever you want for decorations. The different colored fabric and extra flowers will probably cost you, but I donâ€™t see why they wouldnâ€™t let you do that. I would confirm with Ana. Let us know what she says!
As for the long waits at the restaurants, we were just there and did not have the same bad experience that others are complaining about. However, there were only 2 of us and it is possible that this becomes more of an issue if you have a large group. Also, remember that these reviews have come in right after a big holiday and the resort was very crowded. None of the earlier reviews mentioned this being an issue.
When we were there we talked to someone who had been to other all inclusives and said that this system was so much better. Apparently, many other resorts make you decide at the beginning of your trip which restaurants you want to eat at during the week and when. Who wants to be on a schedule on vacation
Anyway here is my experience:
1.Asian restaurant (regular table) â€“ 6pm no wait
2.Bordeux â€“ 7pm â€“ 45 min wait. We just grabbed a drink at the lobby bar and were not too hungry anyway from all of the other snacking we had done. So it worked out good!
3.Oceana â€“ 6pm no wait
4.Asian restaurant (tepanaki grill) â€“ made reservations on Thurs for Sunday night. If you want to eat at the grills you should make reservations at the beginning of your trip as there are only 2 tables.
5.Didnâ€™t have a chance to try out the Seaside grill, Portofino, or El Patio
I hope that helps!

I don't mind waiting a bit for a table and when your on your holidays everyone is laid back anyway but when i read reviews on ppl waiting hours i thought that was a bit much. Just shows you, you can't go by everything you read. But thank you for letting me know about your experience, it's nice talking to someone that has been there. )

If anyone hears anything different, let me know as well!
