We loved our honeymoon at the Excellence! Yes, the rooms are slightly dated but they're clean and the staff is wonderful! The resort offers lots of activities and you are always greeted by a smiling face! We are definitely going back!

Spent 14 days here.. 7 would have been enough. Lets start with the rooms, although spacious enough the toilet/ shower has a glass window so you can see right through! ( not much privacy there ) and be prepared to be kept awake with nocturnal birds tweeting all night! The restaurants were pretty naff too, we struggled to find anywhere... More

The friendliest people on the planet :-) Resort was dated but very clean. Food was OK. Atmosphere was very relaxing. Too expensive for what you get. Especially, considering the exchange rate for the peso vs. American dollar. Excursions turn into a `high-jacking' at the end. .. They always have something for you to buy. Its all inclusive, but you get... More

My wife and I just returned from a trip to the Excellence Resort in Punta Cana. We would be remiss if we did not comment on the excellent work, in particular, of 2 of the employees at the Resort. Firstly, Raphael who worked on the beach at the Excellence Club location was superb. Each day he would prepare our seating... More

We have stayed at Excellene Riviera Cancun four times and loved it. We thought we would give Ecxellence Punta Cana a try. It was nice, but not up to the level of ERC. Service was not near as good. The food was lacking. We ate at the tapas restaurant the first night, and the food that was meant to be... More

I just returned from a five day four night stay here. I had arranged for roundtrip transportation through the concierge at Excellence in advance. The taxi driver was waiting outside of the airport with a sign bearing my name. You must go through several people vowing to provide you with transportation upon exiting the airport. The taxi driver, speeding ferociously,... More

Overall, a great experience. Everyone is very attentive to you, except on the beach. but that's fine. Very hot in the summer time, the thatch cover at the pool and beach come in handy. Everyone that works there is very nice. Loved the activities people-especially KASSANDRA! She was hilarious and full of energy. Mr. Cappuccino was funny too. The pool... More
