First time to Punta Cana and I definitely wanna go some more. This place is absolutely fantastic...or more like excelente. You can find things to complain about, but they're mostly not things that are worth complaining about unless you just like to complain. The food is great. They like to fry things so there's a bit of grease, but it... More

We were at Excellence May 1 – 15th to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and had an amazing time. We stayed in an Excellence Club oceanview suite and thought the upgrade was well worth it. Nothing was too much trouble for Roberto and his team in the Excellence Club concierge service and we used the Club quite a bit as... More

My husband and I had the best time at the Excellence. Our every need was catered to during our stay. The property is beautiful and well-kept. The beach, magnificient gardens, the exotic birds, the cute shops, and all the amentities make this place top notch. I have never been to a place where I have felt so at home. The... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Excellence Punta Cana from April 19- 26th, 2008. It was wonderfully romantic, and I look at our beautiful pictures almost daily. Here are some things that I wished I had known before booking our trip, as we might have chosen a different resort: - The grounds are treated for mosquitos each evening... More

My husband and I booked our honeymoon here and absolutely loved it! This is a couples only resort which is perfect for honeymooners. The property is amazing, with about 7 restaurants, several pools, one with a swim up bar. Our package was all inclusive which is the way to go. (Our favorite drinks were the coco loco's!)There are plenty of... More

My wife and I stayed at Excellence for 12 days starting at the end of April for our honeymoon. It was amazing. We could have stayed a lot longer! Location: It was perfect. A huge beach with lots of privacy. Grounds were beautiful and well kept. If you walk the beach about a mile you can find calmer water. Entertainment.... More

My friend and I planned this trip last minute and what an amazing introduction to the Dominican Republic and my first all-inclusive. I would agree that it is not the ideal location for singles but traveling with a friend was great. We are both independent and social so we had a great time. The entertainment and bartending staff especially Brajulio... More

We had a wonderful time at Excellence in Punta Cana. The resort itself has a relaxed elegance that really outshines the other resorts in the area. The staff was amazing - it was our first experience at an all inclusive and I was wary about the quality of customer service we would recieve. Each and every member of the hotel... More

Excellence Punta Cana is truly an amazing resort - peaceful, tranquil, lively and some of the most accommodating staff I've experienced. I've stayed at several all-inclusives and this one by far tops them all. Room: We stayed in a garden view room on the ground floor. It was very spacious, had a nice updated bathroom, safe in room, minibar with... More
