Excellence Riviera Cancun - Adults Only - All Inclusive, Puerto Morelos
Great place with awesome people - seaweed was horrible though which made experience just a bit less than we had hoped for - will not be headed back to Riviera area until this problem goes away.

Very Good8.0
Gorgeous Hotel, Good Food, Beach Full of Seaweed
Property was gorgeous, the staff was very friendly and super helpful. The rooms and amenities were comfortable and generous. The pools were clean and the restaurants had good food - the French restaurant, the Hibachi & the Lobster House were superb. Mostly everything is on par for what you expect from a 4-star hotel, but those 3 restaurants were exceptional. I have only 3 real gripes with this property - the first is the "dress code". Mainly pertains to men during the evening - they are required to wear "casual elegance" which is defined as dress pants & dress shoes - however they allow JEANS & RUNNING SNEAKERS into the restaurants and say this falls into "casual elegance". Nice dress shorts and dress sandals (not beachwear to be clear) are not allowed in the inside restaurants. It's a bit mindboggling and to be honest looks very sloppy and not very elegant at all. 2nd issue - the beach chairs/chaise lounges are awful - they just need some new cushions. They were not comfortable at all for extended amounts of time laying in the sun. The beach beds were very comfortable to note. 3rd issue - which is not really the hotel's fault at all, but worth mentioning, this area has had a seaweed problem for some time; the hotel was great at keeping the beach clean of seaweed, but if you like to swim in the ocean, you are going to find a ton of seaweed. Again, the hotel does a great job at keeping the beach clean, however there isn't much they can do about cleaning the water.
