Among more unusual pursuits offered here are shooting and archery. Tennis lessons and an outdoor tennis court are available.

MIILE Spa offers the full range of deluxe spa services and facilities in a beautiful setting, including aqua massages, a cold plunge pool, water treatments and a Hammam. The fitness center features strength-training and cardio equipment, including treadmills, stationary bicycles, and stair machines. A fitness trail used by walkers, joggers, and bicyclists encircles the resort and passes by neighboring wetlands, offering glimpses of tropical birds, turtles, and even crocodiles.
Wireless Internet access is complimentary in the lobby for guests with personal laptops, and high-speed Internet access is provided at computers in the business center for a fee. Popular for weddings and other events, the resort provides a gazebo and white-sand beach for ceremonies as well as more than 1,486 square meters (16,000 square feet) of meeting and exhibit space, much of it with ocean views.
The resort offers 11 restaurants, 6 bar/lounges, 2 poolside bars, a beach bar, and a rooftop terrace. Room service is delivered with extra privacy in mind, with food and drink left in a pass-through box, which guests can access without opening their guestroom door.

Guests can take advantage of kayaks, snorkeling gear, sail boats, and windsurfers to enjoy the turquoise water in front of this beachfront hotel. Because this water is in a protected area, access to the ocean with sports equipment incurs a Mexican government tax of US$2 per person, per stay. Those staying on land can play tennis, run on a trail that encircles the resort, join a game of volleyball or billiards, or try their hand at shooting or archery. Plus, the resort offers a 300-meter (985-foot) stretch of Riviera Maya beach for pure relaxation.
Hotel staff at Excellence Riviera Cancun All Inclusive can help arrange outings for other activities such as snorkeling tours, deep-sea fishing, and scuba diving (surcharges).
