This place is not worth the money. Disgusting food, slow horrible service and a total disappointment overall. Sometimes we got turn down service, sometimes not. We had to move rooms after 4 days and the second room had no privacy and was so loud. Overly crowded beach. Drinks were brought to us maybe once every 3 hours, less if you... More

Before I get to the hotel review, I would definitely recommend booking the direct transfer to this hotel. It is a bit farther than many from the airport and not having to stop at a bunch of other resorts to drop people off before you get there is worth whatever extra we paid. Now to the resort. The minute you... More

I spent my honeymoon at Excellence Punta Cana and it was a great choice! Amazing place, people and food! I really loved it! I was also very pleased with the entertainment programme. I was there for 2 weeks and it was wonderful! I can definitely recommend this hotel and would love to come back!

List of good entertainment and games, if you like that. Special people-- the cook at Las Olas great! The other people ambriosis, Cassandra, Juan... More

We just went for my Birthday (2/20/15). We upgraded to "Excellence Club". Was not worth it! Food: Out of 8 restaurants the French was the best. Worst: Lobster House was terrible. We both ordered grilled lobster and we received a plate with shrimp, fish, and pieces of lobster mixed with vegetables. We sent it back and waiter brought out lobster... More

This place is amazing. We traveled with 12 couples and had a wonderful time. The service was outstanding in every aspect. Everyone was very courteous. The rooms were very nice and spacious with hot tubs in the room. Any drink you want. Plenty of bars. Shows every night. The ocean was a bit rough but the pools were beautiful. The... More

Overall we (two couples) thoroughly enjoyed our ten days in February at the Excellence Punta Cana. The resort is older but it is continually being refurbished, so it is clean, contemporary, and comfortable. There is no nearby golf course, or town to visit for markets and night life. It is simply a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy sun and... More
