We were at Excellence Punta Cana from February 19-24, 2013. Our group consisted of 5 couples. I have to say the resort is amazing. I read review after review on Tripadvisor before we left and I was concerned about some of the reviews, but after being there I am not sure how anyone could complain about the resort. The resort...

Great service from start to finish (with the exception of one small shop in the store area). The restaurants were very good. Spice was our favorite. There are many excellent bartenders. Jose Luis was outstanding. The shows were very entertaining. The rooms are very nice, and the cleaning staff was helpful. There was only one issue during our stay: Do...

Loved this resort. The staff are wonderful. We were here for New Year's eve. Very decent show and dancing plus fireworks on the beach. Food was reasonable. The beach was fantastic, walked for miles up the beach. WARNING: Pay attention to the flags! There are areas where the undertow will pull you right out into the ocean past the reef....

Most everything about this trip was fabulous. We never had to wait for anything we asked for, be it food, drink, room service, etc. The staff was extremely friendly and everything was beautifully maintained. There were so many options for restaurants. Any type of food you were in the mood for, they have. There were so many options for lounging,...

We went here in November of 2011 for our honeymoon. The service is excellent and if you can afford the upgrade to Excellence Club- DO IT! The scuba instructors are great, the food in the French restaurant was actually our favorite. We went to the Asian restaurant, which was our least favorite. The spa is great- couples massage package was...

The ride to Excellence took a while but it was worth the wait! From the moment we arrived, the staff was ready to accomdate our every need. Our room, which was one of the lowest price garden view rooms in the 1300 block, actually had an ocean view and I could walk right out to the beach (past my private...

My now-fiancée and I stayed at Excellence Punta Cana the last week of February 2013 with another couple. The hotel and grounds were absolutely gorgeous, and everything you could imagine in a tropical resort. The lobby was open-air, so as soon as we got off the bus (we were handed champagne) we could see through the lobby to the beach....

My partner and I visited Excellence for our second 3 weeks stay this Feb / March, and it didn't disappoint. It was as lovely as we remembered, and they had made improvements such as the seating area for the Beach restaurant ( Las Olas ). The property is constantly maintained, with gardeners busy all day, along with the pool staff,...

My wife and I love all inclusive resorts. We have been to Mexico several times and decided to try somewhere different. The Excellence Punta Cana is the nicest resort we have ever visited.
