I hope you have been enjoying my review of Excellence Playa Mujeres!  Please check out these posts if you need to catch up.  Today I will cover the dining options at EPM.

Dining

There are 10 dining options plus one beach snack grill.  There are 11 different bars throughout the resort (I find it funny that there are more bars than restaurants 🙂  Some restaurants have smoking sections in the outdoor seating.

The website has menus and breakdowns of each restaurant.

Dress Code is often discussed and for the most part is as follows.  There are 3 basic dress codes – Casual, Casual Elegance, and Casual Informal.

Casual Elegance

For Gentlemen: Long pants, collar shirt.

For Ladies: Long pants, Capri pants, skirt, blouse. Casual shoes or elegant sandals must be worn.  T-shirts, tank tops, shorts or beach sandals are not allowed.

Casual

Shorts, Bermudas sarong and t-shirts welcome. Tank tops, wet clothes or swimsuits are not allowed.

Casual Informal

Shorts, bermudas, sarongs, cover ups and t-shirts are welcomed. Men sleeveless, tank tops, wet clothes or swimsuits are not allowed. Footwear must be worn at all times.

They are pretty strict about the dress code as well.  I will note the dress code under each restaurant.
