The Finest Playa Mujeres resort prides itself on being a chic, upscale resort with opulence the entire family can appreciate. It was recently opened in 2015 and sits on a secluded stretch of beautiful beach in a gated community, removed from the hustle and bustle of the Cancun strip. Playa Mujeres has all the makings of a luxury all-inclusive, with a modern design that would translate to a most stylish wedding ceremony, plus stunningly soft sand and world-class pools that would make for a sophisticated destination wedding.
Although for the whole family, your wedding guests have the option to book the adults-only Excellence section which also includes an adults-only pool.
For those looking to adventure off-site during your destination wedding, there is a ferry ride nearby to Isla Mujeres, and the Cancun strip with nightlife and shopping is 25 minutes away.
The swim-up bar in the main area also serves as a juice bar to ensure family-friendly options throughout the resort.
The entry-level Excellence wedding package becomes complimentary when you reserve a Finest Club Junior Suite Ocean View category or higher for a minimum 7-night stay, or a bridal party with 5 rooms of any category for a minimum of 7 nights each. Upgraded packages, additional guests, and add-ons are available for an additional cost.

Q: How long have you been a wedding coordinator and how many weddings have you coordinated?
A: I’ve been a coordinator for over 5 years. I’ve done more than 500 weddings between Excellence Riviera Cancun and Finest Playa Mujeres, plus the weddings and events from my past jobs. Just here at Finest Playa Mujeres, we have around 20-25 weddings per month.
Q: What makes your resort a great place for a destination wedding?
A: Finest Playa Mujeres is a great place for a multi-age destination wedding because from the very first contact that the wedding couple has with us, our team plans for a perfect wedding experience. We enhance the individual experience not only for the wedding couple but for their guests as well. Our all-inclusive beachfront variety of wedding venues covers the needs for a big wedding surrounded by friends and family of all ages or an intimate barefoot gathering for just two. In addition, our wedding packages are comprehensive, elegant and surprisingly affordable. Some packages are even free for the wedding couple with certain suite bookings.
Q: What are the challenges brides face when planning their destination wedding at your resort?
A: The biggest challenge that any bride planning a destination wedding have to overcome, is the fact that they have not been here in person where the event is going to take place, and they know their wedding coordinator just by phone or e-mails. So this situation makes our wedding couples a little bit nervous. However, once they are here and have their final meeting with the wedding coordinator they can reduce that stress and really enjoy the moment.
Q: What compliments do brides typically give about the resort?
A: The personalized service and the breathtaking ocean view locations for the ceremony and the receptions are what clients like the most. We have all the details confirmed prior to the arrival of the wedding couple, so once they are here they don’t have to worry about the planning process, and they can fully enjoy the resort and time with their loved ones. Besides of the wedding service, our clients also enjoy the resort amenities, fine dining, multiple activities and high-quality standard service that make our resort a unique product in the area.
Q: What is your favorite part of a destination wedding?
A: I loved that it can be a romantic get away for an elopement couple, or fun and relaxing reunion experience with all your beloved friends and family even after the wedding itself.
Q: Can you tell us an anecdote about one of your brides when you saved the day?
A: The Caribbean weather as you know is very unpredictable, so we always advise in advance to our couples about the chances of raining during their wedding date. So one time we had this huge wedding where the couple spent a lot of money on flowers and decor because they wanted a beachfront reception. Unfortunately, the weather didn’t look very sunny for their wedding date and we had to inform them that I had to move the wedding ceremony and the reception to our backup location. At the beginning, the bride was very sad about the fact that she was not able to have their wedding on the beach as she had dreamed.
However, I talked to them and asked them to trust me because even if the sky seemed that it was not going to rain in that moment, in my experience I know that leaving the set-up on the beach was not the best option, so I assured them that if they let everything in my hands everything was going to be okay. The next day the bride found me to thank us for advising her to change the location and saved her wedding because if they had stayed at the beach as she wanted, all the decor, flowers and food would have been destroyed and the wedding would have been ruined.

“Beautiful hotel, pool, and beach area. Relaxed atmosphere with lots of different dining and drinking options. Optional activities every day, which are entertaining. All inclusive resort with mini bar and alcohol cupboard refilled every day. Really loved my experience here, couldn’t ask for anything more. Would definitely come back again soon if it wasn’t so far from Australia. “ – Mariano T. 8/17
“This place is hands down the best all inclusive resort I have been. The food is great, such a wide selection. Many different restaurants. The bars all stock top shelf spirits. The beachfront is removed from the busy tourist area which makes it private and quiet. The rooms, wow the shower head was like standing in the rain. I couldn’t recommend this place more. The gorgeous property is only made better by the wonderful staff who are very accommodating. “ – Joe W. 7/17
“Best hotel I’ve ever been to! They have well-maintained rooms that are cleaned and beds are turned everyday. The pools are very nice, close to the beaches. The restaurants they have are very nice with very delicious food. Also you get newspapers and what’s going on at the hotel that day every day delivered to your room.” – Alyssa S. 2/17
