My husband and I have stayed at Excellence in Mexico and loved it, so we decided to give this one a try. We left behind our three kids and were so excited to enjoy a relaxing trip away. After getting off of our flight, the hour plus ride to the resort was crazy. The driver was very adventurous, and a...

A great experience for an all inclusive, relaxing resort. The facilities were in good condition and the staff was friendly and accomodating. The beach was pristine but the Excellence hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico was newer and nicer. The rooms were cleaned thoroughly daily and the alcohol and sodas in the room were restocked daily.

My Wife and I went to the Excellence, Punta Cana 31st May to 7th June. Journey - From the airport it is an hours drive, the roads are of a poor standard so the journey is very bumpy and the drivers like to take risks when overtaking so if you get travel sickness take a tablet. Room - We had...

A group of 12 of us spent a week at Excellence in May. We were all returning guest and I must say our vacation was excellent again. The resort itself is the same with some minor changes to the rooms and grounds. The restaurants still have great service and good food but what still stands out is the service and...

Overall, it was a great experience. The food was terrific with a great variety of restaurants to choose from. Breakfast was great, lunch with plenty of choices and the dinners were special. We recommend their pizza at Oregano and the Spice for Asian food. Chez Isabelle would be the best choice for romance. The thing that found best was the...

If luxury and being pampered interest you, Excellence Punta Cana is the place to go. While I spent five days at Club Excellence, an upscale hotel within the hotel, this adult-only boutique hotel is a dream. The staff is very organized, they make sure that you are not missing anything. They have five restaurants <a la carte> on site and...

We spent our honeymoon at The Excellence Punta Cana and had a wonderful time. The resort is picture perfect and extremely clean and well kept. The service was great and we were waited on hand and foot for the 5 days we were there. The ride from the airport is an adventure but interesting to see how other people live....

I'd like to tell you about my experience at Excellence Punta Cana, the week of 5/25/2013 throught 6/1/2013. Since the name is Excellence, I feel you need to know the Punta Cana location may not be living up to their standards. Additionally, since this is our second stay at one of the Excellence resorts (our first experience was at Excellence...

We stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana from 5/31/13 to 6/5/13. We had a fantastic time and the service could not have been any better. Everyone that worked at the resort spoke english, with the exception of some positions that did not have much interactions with guests. Although some were a little tough to understand at times, but traveling outside...

This is an amazing resort. Food: The breakfast and lunch buffets are very good, though it could be difficult to get items like soft-boiled eggs, much like any buffet. The restaurants, with the exception of the steak house, were good, though the French restaurant was by far the best. The service at both the buffets and the restaurants was superb....

  • Nice Jacuzzi in the bedroom
  • Bed in center of bedroom and to the right of bed is closet, shower, bathroom, Very odd setup.
