This was our 6th visit to Dominican Republic and our 2nd stay at the Excellence Punta Cana. It is always a bit nerve racking to return to a hotel, especially for 2 weeks, just in case it is not as good as previous. On arrival, all seemed well. The hotel had changed somewhat with more restaurants being added and some... More

I stayed at Excellence the week of May 10th. This was my second time at Excellence, the first time back in 2007. The hotel rooms need updating as does the pool. This time staff was not as friendly. Sadly a man drowned in the ocean and apparently this has happened before at this hotel. Do not swim in the ocean... More

I don't know where people have stayed previously who are giving this a 5 star review. This hotel is barely average and if you are expecting the same level of greatness as other Excellence resorts (Cancun) you will be very disappointed. The staff was nice and did their best to accommodate what you asked for. I honestly think they work... More

We could not have picked a better place for our honeymoon! Everything was wonderful, and we definitely will recommend this resort to our friends and family and hope to return for a future anniversary. I have never been to a resort before, so I might be easy to please, but from hearing other's experiences at other resorts in Punta Cana... More

My husband and I just spent a long weekend at Excellence Punta Cana and we had a fantastic time. The resort is very nice. Lots of restaurants and bars plus tons of activities from tennis to pool tables. The resort is located on the beach which was beautiful. Lots of cabanas were available both on the beach and at the...

This resort was the absolute worst all inclusive vacation we have taken. Resort rooms are terribly dirty and unsanitary. First day when we checked in we were taken to our room (Room 11110, junior garden suite) to find a pool of water on the floor and the ceiling leaking water (see pictures). Called the front desk and asked to switch... More

This hotel is hands down the best place we have ever been and my wife and I have traveled all over the world. The food was great, the rooms were amazing, there is not one thing I could possibly think could be better. The employees are unbelievable they make the trip do much fun and are so involved with making... More

Arrived at the Excellence Punta Cana (EPC) on 27th April & stayed 14 nights. On arriving at the hotel we were greeted with a welcomed cold towel and a cool glass of bubbly. Unfortunately we had a few snags when checking in as the room we had been allocated wasn't right for us. After quite a bit of toing and... More

Another absolutely amazing holiday at Excellence Punta Cana. I have said it all before so no need to say any more - thank you to all the staff - you know who you are. Bring it on many more times!! The best hotel in the Dominican Republic by far.
