We consider ourselves experienced travelers. We take major vacations 2-3 times every year. This time we went with one other couple to the Excellence Punta Cana, and we both agree it was the best vacation we have ever had. The resort is beautiful, and the pools are lovely. My husband actually LIKED being in the water, which is unusual. The...

This was our second trip to Punta Cana, but our first stay at Excellence. We loved this hotel and would definitely return! The beach and pools were beautiful, plenty of palapas and beach beds available. There were lots of friendly people but it never felt overcrowded. Loved the beach bar and grill and most of all the friendly service from...

We had an amazing time at Excellence in Punta Cana! We went for our anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The service was top notch and the resort was beautiful. The food was great and so was the entertainment! I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to relax, have fun, and enjoy beautiful scenery!

You couldn't ask for anything more from a resort. We upgraded to the excellence club for our honeymoon and it was worth every penny. The beach cabanas are heaven but even if those are occupied, there's always plenty of cushioned lounged chaises with umbrellas all over the beach. The food was 4-5 stars, including room service which is an extensive...

Just returned from our 3rd trip to Excellence Punta Cana (4/11-4/18) and can't wait to return next year. This is one of the best resorts we have ever stayed at for the following reasons: First of all, the resort itself is set amidst lovely, landscaped grounds with a beautiful beach and pools, and entertainment and activities galore.

We just returned from our week at the Excellence and I would recommend this place to anyone. The grounds are simple outstanding, the staff always friendly, and the food more than OK.

It's rare I feel the need to write a review of a resort. If it's really good I don't want others to know about it, and I take no pleasure out of writing a review that slams a resort. However I feel like there's been a certain amount of shilling for this particular all inclusive and I want to give...
