The hotel is nice with lots of eating spots and live shows. If you do not have good or great spanish the service may appear not to be so great. The views from the beach are awesome! So is the Spa. I had the best deep tissue massage ever! Lots to do on premises. Would suggest you use iPads provided... More

We visited Excellence Punta Cana the first week of September. Overall, it was a very enjoyable stay and I would consider going back and plan to visit the Mexico properties. I would give this resort 4 1/2 stars if this were an option. Airport: We flew in around noon on a Thursday and were in our taxi within 30 minutes.... More

Hotel is in need of some cosmetic fixes. Some staff seemed unhappy when serving the guests. We were disappointed and surprised that the pools all closed at 6pm. Bring tons of bug spray...the Mosquitos are terrible. Other than those four complaints, everything else was pretty good :-)

My husband and I stayed at Excellence Punta Cana for 12 amazing nights in August. Over the past few years, we have stayed at 6 other all-inclusives in Mexico and the Caribbean besides this one. Last summer, we stayed at Excellence Riviera Cancun, which we loved, so we thought we'd try another Excellence property. We had a ground floor junior... More

We just returned from Excellence Punta Cana from our Honeymoon and I could describe the entire experience with one word; AMAZING!!! The people and staff were great. Always making you feel like you were the only person there. Very attentive and catering to all your needs. My husband and I had outstanding service from Joan (Barcelona restaurant). He always took...

My new husband and I stayed in the Imperial suite last week at the excellence. We had a wonderful time. We don't know what all the complaints were about with the food- we thought it was great! Yes- some things don't taste like you would expect in America, but we were in DR. The ONLY drawback was the bugs. EVERYONE... More

I want to start off by saying if you are looking for a beautiful, relaxing, entertaining place to vacation this is the spot! This was our 2nd time here and we have already booked again for next year. We always stay in building 2. It seems to be in the middle of everything the resort has to offer. Roberto is... More

We stayed at this hotel the last two weeks of August. Having previously stayed at Excellence Playa Mujeres we decided to try the Excellence Punta Cana as EPM was so good. EPC is the less expensive resort and this is reflected in the service and hotel. I wouldn't say it was terribly bad but it wasn't terribly good either. The... More

I will say that the staff was some of the best and we loved our room. We stayed on the third floor and the room was clean and comfortable. However, the food was awful, the Mosquitos were awful, people got so drunk they would just dump their drinks in the pool, and the worst part was it was off season... More
