TORONTO — The Excellence Collection has adjusted the reopening dates of several of its properties in an effort to ensure the best possible experience for guests.
In an official statement to the trade, the company said: “We understand the inconvenience at hand that COVID-19 has presented for your clients’ travel plans but it is our commitment to continue to implement the flexibility that has characterized us throughout these unusual times.”
The following properties in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica have updated their reopening dates, each of which were previously set to reopen on Aug. 28:
Excellence Playa Mujeres is the only property in the company’s portfolio that is currently open.
Here’s how guests at impacted properties are being accommodated:
For guests with existing arrival dates at Excellence Riviera Cancun between Aug. 28 and Sept. 23, 2020, Excellence is protecting affected bookings by automatically accommodating them at sister resort Excellence Playa Mujeres. Guests’ current rates will not change, and they will be accommodated in suite categories equivalent to their current reservation.
Guests with existing arrival dates at Beloved Playa Mujeres between Aug. 28 and Sept. 30, 2020 will also be automatically accommodated at Excellence Playa Mujeres, located next door.
Guests at both resorts will not see their current rates change, and they will be accommodated in suite categories equivalent to their current reservation.
Agents who booked a suite-only reservation with affected dates (not a flight package) via the company’s official websites or through its Call Center are not required to do anything. Their reservation will be upgraded to Excellence Playa Mujeres automatically and they will be contacted via email with their new reservation information in the following weeks.
Should a guest wish to keep their reservation at Excellence Riviera Cancun or Beloved Playa Mujeres, Excellence will help them move their dates. It, however, cannot honour their current rate; the rate for the newly selected dates will apply.
