I can't say enough good things about Excellence Punta Cana. The service was exceptional! Everyone went above and beyond to make our stay great. The food was great! We tried a different restaurant every night. The sheer number of breakfast choices each morning was extraordinary. Our favorite place was the beach...just relaxing each day with impeccable service. We never had... More

This is a nice hotel but I would go to another one next time I go to DR. When you get off the plane the cabs complain that the hotel is too far. My cousin booked a cab from expedia so that she would have no problem but when she landed they complained and charged her $40 extra to get... More

From the moment we stepped foot on the property, the staff at Excellence made us feel special. We choose the resort for our honeymoon and it was the best decision possible. The Adults Only resort features 9 delicious restaurants and an assortment of bars. Our favorite was Blue, the swim up bar. We were also in the Excellence Club and... More

I'll begin with what the Excellence is not, and that's a five star property. Don't get me wrong, most everything we experienced was great, but there was never truly the 'wow' factor (other than some of the views) that separates the best hotels from the rest. The good: Amazing views, very courteous staff, drinks made quickly and to order, the... More

If you are willing to pay 5 Star prices for 3 Star amenities, then this is the place for you. Just to be clear, this resort meets all the standards of a Three Star, just not a 5 Star. We had hoped to experience at least Caribbean influenced foods, but none existed here. The restaurants are generally good but foods... More

This is our third time at this resort and we love it! We always go the last week in August for my boyfriend's birthday. First of all, let me give thanks to all of the amazing people who work there (sorry if I forgot some names but they were all wonderful). They are most of the reason why we keep... More

We stayed here in early Oct 2013, it was our 1st trip to EPC and our 4th stay with Excellence. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and my wife's birthday. The property is beautiful the beach we believe is the best out of all the excellence resorts. Service was great they couldn't do enough for you and no request was... More

Where do I even begin. I was looking so forward to this trip. So many great reviews and what seemed to be one of the best adults only all inclusive resort in the DR. The short story? I will NEVER stay at an "Excellence" Resort again. Here's the detailed terrible experience--let me start by saying it was our honeymoon and... More

I hate that this is true, but Let me first start off with saying, anyone who give this place 5 stars obviously has never been treated to 5 stars. The food sucks, service sucks, mosquitos ruin the entire experience. The only 5 stars about this place is the welcome and spa. No service worker did anything other than their specific... More

I did a lot of research before purchasing this trip, as it was for my 5 year wedding anniversary. I read a lot of complaints regarding the beds and the food. Let me say....they were all true. One thing I didn't expect when booking a 5 star resort was the spring-break type clientele that would frequent this place for the... More
