Best vacation that I have ever been on. I've been to almost every place in the Caribbean and this one takes the cake. (Keep in mind that I love to play in waves in the ocean) I have been recommending this place to everyone that I talk to. We are currently being invited to another vacation spot and it's hard... More

Great resort! The staff was very friendly. Went out of their way to be helpful. Never needed a reservation at any of the 7 restaurants, even though we were a group of 9! The staff walked around giving out pizza at lunch. They were always around serving drinks either on the beach or pool area. Resort is clean and well... More

We recently spent a long weekend at the Excellence Resort. The resort was beautiful and clean. The grounds were really lush. The tiki huts and beds on the beach were great. We never had trouble getting chairs or a hut. The ocean was very rough and was not good for swimming, but we were there to look and hear the... More

Adults only (must be 19 or older. Direct flight from a lot of major airports. Only 45 minutes from the airport by Private Transportation which cost me $120 per person round trip. This way you don't have to stop at numerous hotels especially on the way back. Multiple restaurants and bars. No reservations required. I never had to wait more... More

My daughter chose this resort based on recommendations from friends and also reviews. We spent a week enjoying the tropical setting (especially after our long winter) and got to know her husband and parents. It was a perfect resort for this--all inclusive and adults only, which worked for us. Wedding services were perfect for our small party--short ceremony on the... More

My wife and I spent a week at the Excellence from April 6th to the 12th. We travel a lot and tend to do a lot of sightseeing type destinations. We were both ready to get away and take a week to decompress and relax. That is exactly what we did. The resort is perfect for relaxing my the pool... More

Without making this a very wordy review - if you've come to love the Excellence chain and like the idea of an Adults only property then look no further when planning your vacation to the DR. what we LOVED: The upgrade to the Excellence Club has it's perks! The private section of beach that's reserved is awesome even if you... More

We loved the restaurant... More

We have just returned after an 8 night stay.The resort was beautiful and the staff very friendly and helpful.We loved Kassandra with activities and Pauline at the front desk.
