Opinions about Sandals
A review by Jennifer D. At the Jamaica airport, the Sandals hotel has a VIP lounge while you wait for transportation to the hotel. They don’t speak any Spanish at the hotel but a very friendly lady named Virginia did her best to understand and help us, along with Lenus. With regard to the facilities, it is a small hotel compared to other resorts we have gone to, but they have beautiful facilities. The main pool is small, but they have a beach that really looks like a very large pool and the water is crystal clear the fish are seen. The sunset is incredible !!! The buffet is very small, but they have what it takes not to get dizzy to choose between so much food and you can eat on the terrace over the sea and watching the fish. By the way, all buffet food is healthy, low in salt and low fat. You cannot smoke in the rooms or anywhere. They have special smoking areas throughout the hotel. I definitely recommend this hotel and we would like to return. They made us feel very good.
A review by Rachel M.With my husband we had decided to go to Jamaica for our honeymoon, is a place that has beautiful beaches and several attractions to visit. We wanted a hotel for couples only and we were not wrong when choosing the SRC. Having been to other all-inclusive hotels (in Punta Cana, Varadero and Cancun) I can highlight the Sandals overall. The service is SPECTACULAR. Everyone worries because you are happy and that you are enjoying your vacation. The activities are quite tranquil, since they are all in pairs and there are always different themes at night. We stayed for 7 nights so we could enjoy all the shows. The drinks they prepare in the bars are delicious and except for the Piano Bar on the night that is full, they serve you almost immediately.
This hotel has 5 restaurants, only 2 require a reservation. The food is spectacular, being Peruvian and quite demanding on the subject of food I can tell you not to miss my home food very much. Everything was delicious, especially the French and Thai restaurant.
There is everything to do if you plan to stay all day at the hotel, we use the gym (with sauna), we snorkel, and you can rent paddle boats, sailboats and kayaks, at no additional cost. It is a must to spend a full day on the private island you have and relax.
It has certainly been an unforgettable trip and we loved the hotel !!!

About Excellence Resorts we have these opinions:
Awesome !! This is definitely the best option to spend unforgettable holidays. The attention is simply unsurpassed, anticipating at all times the needs of the client. The excellent location. Playa Mujeres is one of the prettiest in Cancun. The rooms, with minimalist lines, are very spacious, comfortable and perfectly decorated. No detail is missing! The playground is amazing! With theater, water park, playground, room for rest … The staff is fun and very qualified. In our stay, we could enjoy the spa, without a doubt, a mandatory stop. The food is delicious! Both at breakfast and in the 9 restaurants that the resort houses. It has beautiful pools, with access to the rooms on the ground floor. Many thanks to the entire finest team for making our vacation the perfect vacation.
