This was our third time at this hotel and we are absolutely sure that we will be back! Luxurious, quiet, absolutely impeccable service. Food was great. The best thing about food that there are 7 different restaurants and no reservations are needed!

We have just returned home from the most amazing 2 week honeymoon. The hotel met all of our expectations. After an 8 hour flight and 5 hour delay from the UK we arrived at the hotel to a lovely warm welcome and a cold refreshing glass of sparkiling wine. The room we had was immaculate and recently rennovated. Even though... More

Our stay was truly excellent and memorable. Like most of the other reviews we were blown away by the service, attention to detail and the overall ambience. I have to say... More

We stayed Five nights at the Excellence, with four other couples. We all agreed that we should have stayed longer. Everything was awesome. The service was great. The beach was the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. We took two tours that we booked from the hotel. This gave us an opportunity to venture off the resort. Which was... More

Love love love the hotel! Very good! The only problem is that it is so far from anything. Rooms are great service is great food is great! Great pools and great swim up bar. Great great great! Great beach! Only problem on the beach is that the waiter on the beach you could never find to get more drinks.

We have travelled throughout the world, but this was our first visit to the Dominican Republic. We wisely chose Excellence Punta Cana. This is a luxurious resort, impeccably clean with a caring, friendly staff eager to see to our every need. The expansive beach had great surf with boogie boards available to use.

Let me just start by saying I normally hate to rate anything as 5 stars because there is always room for improvement. Well, not much room at Excellence Punta Cana.
