Admittedly, I was too busy to do my usual level of research for this vacation. However, because a friend highly recommended Excellence, we went for it. Our stay was from 6 December-14 December. Positives: We found the staff to be (overall) very helpful and cheerful, and they even took it upon themselves to put a birthday cake in my room... More

First, traveling there was... Interesting. The airport in Punta Cana is an open airport. We got off the plane about 100 feet from the airport entrance. We thought you just walked right up, nope. They herd everyone into a bus, drive you in a giant circle around the parking lot, then drop you off in front of the airport. (Exactly... More
