At Finest Resorts Everyone Can Enjoy the Vacation of Their Dreams!

March 24, 2016

Set on a pristine peninsula north of Cancun, surrounded by aquamarine waters and white powder sand beaches whose tranquil hues are echoed throughout its contemporary interiors, Finest Playa Mujeres is the ultimate escape.  

The Hotel

The newest brand to join the Excellence Group - the all-suite luxury all-inclusive company behind Excellence Resorts and Beloved Hotels – Finest Playa Mujeres is the only resort of its kind in the greater Cancun area to welcome guests of all ages.

From the moment you walk through the hotel’s large wooden doors and sip on your welcome cocktail, you know you have arrived somewhere special. Home to 450 spacious guest and family suites (the smallest is 800 square feet), this minimalistic white stucco and wood accented stunner boasts gorgeous grounds with 10 swimming pools, 13 heated Jacuzzis, ground-floor swim-out suites with decks, hammocks over the pool, private garden with pool, and two-story rooftop terraces with plunge pools.

For the ultimate indulgence, upgrade to the Finest Club and enjoy added perks like private check-in and check-out, VIP lounge area, concierge services, private pool bar, pool, beach area and much more. If you seek grown-up time, the Excellence Club is perfectly tucked away from the happy squeals of little ones and features a string of extras like private dining, pool and lounge areas for adults-only.  

Food is a focus at this impressive property that features 12 restaurants where authentic international dishes are only matched by the beautiful interiors in which they are served. Best of all, the hotel’s “no reservations” policy means you have the freedom to indulge your culinary whim whenever you want, wherever you want. The resort also offers an impressive menu with 24-hour room service for those who opt to dine in the comfort of their suite. There are also vegetarian and gluten-free options on every menu throughout.

The crystal clear Playa Mujeres beach is surrounded by lush green foliage and is equipped with sun beds complete with waiter service for food and drink. But if lounging around isn’t your thing, not to worry. The hotel’s luxury amenities and activities include game areas, tennis courts, basketball and soccer fields, sailing, kayaking, introductory scuba lessons, windsurfing, paddle boarding, water polo, yoga, Spanish lessons, cooking lessons, archery and air rifle shooting to name only a few. From the supervised Mini, Maxi and Teen Clubs with waterpark and zip-lining, to the adults-only pools, it is obvious that Finest Playa Mujeres has gone to great lengths to create a multi-age space so that everyone can enjoy the vacation of their dreams!


With emphasis on fresh ingredients, artistic presentation and service, I happily savoured some of the most memorable meals at many of the resort’s 12 international restaurants. However, honourable mention must be given to the adults-only Le Petit Plaisir, where I dined on French inspired cuisine in an elegant white Parisian setting accompanied by world-class wines. At Tinto & Tapas, I snacked on a delicious assortment of tapas that transported me to Spain, and at their newest restaurant Surf and Turf, succulent steak and lobster awaited me. To cool off from the Mexican heat, be sure to visit the Sweet Corner for an assortment of cool beverages and ice-cream. To up their game, Finest is also adding a Mexican food truck! 

For drinks, head to one of the hotel’s 17 bars such as the spectacular Sky Bar, that offers molecular cocktails with postcard-perfect views, or enjoy a drink while dancing the night away at the Piano Bar.

The Rooms

The luxury details and amenities in each suite are just as impressive as the rest of the property: oversized Jacuzzi and rain shower for two, furnished balconies or patios with lounge bed, Bvlgari toiletries, fully stocked premium mini-bars with snacks like Snicker’s bars, Oreo cookies and M&M chocolates, as well as Nespresso Machines. Added bonuses include free Wi-Fi and free international calls anywhere in Canada and the U.S.  

The two-story suite I stayed at in building five’s Finest Club was decked out in minimalist style with white and robin’s-egg blue accents.  The suite featured a rooftop oasis complete with plunge pool, outdoor shower that I happily used, living area and lounger with postcard-perfect views of Playa Mujeres and Isla Mujeres in the close distance.   


From the moment you enter ONE Spa, you are immersed in a world of tranquility. My treatment began at the ONE Wall where I set my intention before beginning my journey through purification, healing and transformation. My therapist Moises led me through the steps of the One Aqua Ritual, where flowing water represents the flowing of One love, One energy in One's world. The experience ended with a shoulder and head massage. You cannot help but leave this experience feeling at peace and rejuvenated. The One Aqua Ritual is free to guests of the Finest Club and Excellence Club.

The spa also offers a wonderful selection of signature rituals and treatments incorporating alternative and traditional therapies. There are also treatments to pamper your little ones, including a mini-spa with sparkling pedicure and lullaby massages. At ONE Spa, ultimate relaxation is open to everyone!
