I could seriously live at this resort with the breeze of the surf and the gardens, it is an awesome landscape. Our room was very comfortable and relaxing. The cleaning staff really took good care of us. We also loved the activities. What I had a problem with was some of the restaurant staff. Perhaps they weren't adequately trained on... More

Hubby & I were looking for a little sunworshiping getaway. We chose this location. Day 1 I was not a happy camper. I did not like the location of the room WE chose (garden view, bldg 12000). Hubby is a bit infirm so the distance to get to things proved a challenge. Disappointed with our Mexican dinner too. Day 2:... More

After endless amounts of research, my husband and I decided to have our Destination Wedding at the Excellence. I used a Travel Agent, and we booked a two weeks stay. I was super nervous about coming here... this past fall the TA reviews were brutal. But OMG, I cannot say enough good things about this resort. We were here Jan... More

The Excellence resort in Punta Cana was a great experience. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there this past November. The beach felt secluded while providing convienient access to the ocean. The water color was similar to the Gulf of Mexico. The Excellence staff was spectacular. We enjoyed eating at several of the restaurants on site. Our all-inclusive... More

Excellence Resort definitely lives up to it's title - it truly is "excellent"! My boyfriend and his family visited for a week in May 2014 and had an unbelievable time. Arrival - The airport is outside so be prepared for that. There were not any terminals so we got off of the plane via a staircase. You could instantly feel... More

First time staying at this resort chain....but not the last! The grounds were beautiful, staff fantastic, and the food was the best we've encountered at an all inclusive. JC, Bianny, Cassandra, and Luz took such great care of us during our stay! Loved not having to make reservations for the restaurants! Weather and beach were great....only drawback are the trade...

My Husband and I vacationed here from Dec 30, 2014 - January 4, 2015 in celebration of our 2 year anniversary and just to escape the winter for warm weather. We have only been to a Sandals in the past, but chose Excellence based on the great reviews and the Free Anniversary package. We had a wonderful time! I will... More

10 day stay turned into a 7 night stay because of an illness before we left. I was glad that the time was shortened. Worst of all... Camera and sunglasses were stolen from our friend's room, and sandals stolen from our room. We had joined the Excellence Club before going - so we did not get bombarded with offers to... More

My wife and I just returned from a fantastic stay here. It was a little bit of a haul from the airport (30 minutes) but well worth the very remote location. You could walk miles down the beach without seeing other resorts. There were some locals trying to get you to buy souvenirs on occasion but not too bad. The... More
