I stayed here for 4 nights two weeks ago. I have to tell you, I was very satisfied with all aspects of the stay. I was a bit tentative given some of the reviews regarding the food, but I found most restaurants to be more than adequate. While this is not a gourmet destination, I do not believe that would...

Very relaxing hotel; warm welcome when we arrived; room location outstanding -- hotel is small enough that everything was close and convenient. Yes the hotel is a long trip but so what. They arranged a private taxi that delivered us safe and sound without any effort on our part. The meals aren't NYC five star but they are ok. They...

My husband and I and 2 adult children (son and daughter) were there over Christmas week. The resort grounds are beautiful and very clean, the staff very friendly and helpful, very prompt in taking care of any requests. The rooms are very nice and spacious; beds are quite comfortable. Mosquitoes seemed to affect everyone differently, maybe worse in garden view...

Went Feb 3 - 8, 2013. I will try not to rehash things that seem to be mentioned in many reviews. A few thoughts... 1. This is one of the cleanest resorts I have ever been to. The beach and pool are by far the cleanest I have ever seen. 2. We stayed in the Excellence club at a cost...

I traveled with a group of eight (3 rooms) everyone complained about how hard the beds were. I have been to many AI resorts in the Caribbean and have never had a mattress this hard. I had read the reviews and thought they can't be that bad!?...They are that bad!!! The hotel tried to fix it with mattress toppers and...

We have been to the Excellence Resort in Punta Cana several years in a row. The staff are very friendly and as helpful as you could ask for. The beauty of the Dominican is personified at the Excellence. We love every trip we have taken and plan to return for many years to come.

This is the 5th all inclusive resort that my husband and I have stayed at and by far the best. The facilities, staff, and beauty of the resort were top notch. Excellence is much better than other all inclusives as you are able to eat at the a la carte restaurants every night with no reservation and no limit. You...

The Great Things: We stayed in a junior swim up suite in Excellence Club. It was worth it because I could always just pop back into my room to use the bathroom and we had chairs outside on our patio right in front of the pool. It was quiet and relaxing. The omelette station was the best! Homemade salsa was...

Great resort where service is their number one priority. You need about 10 days to settle in and find the right food and drinks for your taste. The beach is first class and the pools are very nice. The nightly shows are also good and give you something to do. Highly recommend this resort!!!!
