My husband and I stayed at the Excellence resort for our honeymoon in December 2013. While this resort was highly recommended to me by coworkers, we will not be returning. Our first issue was the fact that the beach was nothing close to the crystal clear waters in the pictures. I realize that it was during the time of the... More

We had a nice time overall on our trip but there were certainly a few things we noticed in comparison to last years trip to EPM. We knew going into it that the resort would have a different style and feel so on that point I will not compare the two because there are things to appreciate in both. What... More

I went with 2 girlfriends and we had a blast! The majority of people there were couples but that didn't bother us. The employees were very friendly, remembered you and spoke EVERYTIME they saw you. The resort is beautiful and the rooms were nice. The food would be the only thing that was just ok. I would recommend bringing a... More

My daughter and I stayed here to celebrate her 18th birthday. We had so much fun! We slept great every night in our Swim Up Junior Suite, which I highly recommend. The employees were wonderful to us and the guests were so friendly. We were a little nervous going knowing that it would be mostly couples but we did not... More

My husband and I stayed at Excellence resort for a week for our honeymoon and it was wonderful. The resort is well maintained. The food is the best I have every had at an all inclusive. The bonus was that you didn't have to make reservations at any of the restaurants so you didn't feel tied down with a schedule.... More

I stayed 3 nights here with two of my friends (girls trip!). We had a lovely time - the property is beautiful and the service was outstanding. Missed out on a fifth star because the good was just so-so (not bad - just not amazing). I had a lovely massage at the spa. Our room was decent. The drinks were... More

The Excellence was everything I read on Trip Advisor and more...... 3 of us traveled to Punta Cana to celebrate with a Girl's Birthday Trip. There were lots of couples celebrating anniversaries and honeymooners, but we did not feel out of place - everyone was so nice. Thanks to Mitch Toren at Trip Guy Travel for helping us plan the...

My wife and I stayed here with an all inclusive package a couple years ago. We loved it. It's quite large. They had nightly activities, shows, all white cabana parties, swim up bar, and multiple pools! The staff were very friendly. They also have several different restaurants on location including a bar/grill. It is (at least a few years ago)... More

Views, beach, pools were amazing! The spa experience was one of the best I have ever had. The room was spacious and comfortable. The layout of the resort was a bit confusing and took a couple days to get used to. The bugs had a field day on us and they charged us $45 for a can of OFF spray... More

My husband, Tim and I would like to provide feedback regarding our 'excellent' vacation that we just got back from. We took a 1 week (Sat thru Sat) vacation with our parents (40 year Wedding Anniversary) and brother/sister (9 year Wedding Anniversary) trip together to celebrate. Our experience was absolutely perfect! I would absolutely recommend this resort, 100 %. It... More
