I traveled with other women from my company. We spent the first four days of our trip at another resort and a few of us extended our stay for a few extra nights at the Excellence. There were pros and cons at both resorts, but I liked the Excellence so much better than the first place we stayed. I loved...

The resort is very nice and comparable to other resorts of its type. What sets this resort apart is the staff. They are amazing and have kept us coming back for 3 of the last 4 years, and we're already making plans for next year. I actually destroyed my ankle playing basketball the second day of our trip, had to...

My boyfriend and I went to Punta Cana to escape the cold winter in New England and when we stepped out of the vehicle I could not believe my eyes! Everyone there treated us like like royalty. Everyone was so friendly and helpful! Everything there was beautiful - you could be as lazy or active as you wanted. There was...

We stayed at the Excellence for our yearly winter getaway this February. Overall, our experience wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't luxury or exceptional. Check in was easy, and champagne awaited us on our arrival. Our room, however was pretty dirty. There was a stain on the comforter that resembled vomit, and the floor was filthy. We alerted the front...

My boyfriend and I chose to come to Punta Cana to get away from the Michigan winter. Before booking this hotel, I read a lot of reviews and picked this place specifically. We ended up in room 1102 with a fantastic view of the cascade pool from the balcony. The room was huge! Cleaned to perfection. The room included a...

Having just returned from the Excellence resort, we can honestly say that we wish we had stayed for 2 weeks. We travelled with another couple who had never been before ( this was the 4th time for me to the Dominican) so I was so happy they loved it too. The resort was beyond amazing. Our whole week was fun-filled...

Where are all those 5-star reviewers staying? My boyfriend and I just got back from a 7-day stay, 2/23-3/2/2013. This is an average resort, not a 5-star facility. If you've traveled widely and stayed in world-class hotels in other parts of the world, you'll be disappointed here. Plus side: The grounds and public areas are very pretty and clean, and...

This was our first visit to an Excellence Resort, but not our first visit to the Dominican Republic. I am on the verge of rating this resort excellent, but there were a couple of items, which I will explain in a bit, that prevent me from going that far. First of all, I must say that the value you get...
