So FI and I are thinking of honeymoon resorts. We want an all inclusive, adult only and I’ve heard great things about Excellence and Secrets resorts!!! Can anyone give me their opinion of which resort would be better?? We have a budget of 8k and want to splurge on a suite. If you could also say which location you stayed at that would be great too! Thanks!

We had our honeymoon at Excellence Riviera Cancun in the club section and loved it!!! We had an oceanfront suite. The food was great and they have a lot of activities if you choose to do so.
I’ve never been to Secrets but I was the same as you and it was a toss up for me. I didn’t pick Secrets because I wasn’t going to bother with the Butler service and Excellence seemed to have better reviews.
I’m sure any place you stay at will be wonderful. Oh, and I heard great things about Excellence Playa Mujeres but have never been myself.

I’ve been to Excellence Riviera Cancun, and it was AMAZING. I have a coworker who has been to Excellence Riviera Cancun and Excellence Playa Mujeres, and he said they were both incredible (though he gave the edge to Playa Mujeres).
The food was restaurant quality, the liquor was top shelf (you just have to ask when they make it), the beach was gorgeous, and you can take out the little Hobbycat (mini sailboat) every day if you want to. Rooms were relatively new, spacious and super comfy.
They also do “theme” nights which are surprisingly fun, and not super tacky. One example is the Indian food night on the beach – gorgeous decorations, relatively authentic food and you’re eating right on the beach!
When we were there, we talked to someone who had also been to Secrets Maroma (we were trying to decide between the two). She said the beach was better at Maroma, but she had more fun with the “theme” nights at Excellence.
From what I’ve heard, you can’t go wrong either way, but I had an INCREDIBLE time at Excellence, and plan on going back.
