My girlfriend and I stayed at Excellence for 7 nights at the end of April/ beginning of May 2008 and had a terrific time. I am so surprised at some of the bad reviews, I definitely would not let them stop you from going to this beautiful, well kept, clean resort. I will break things down in categories and try... More

My new wife and I just spent 5 days here on our Honeymoon. This was the best vacation either of us have ever been on. Excellence is a place where you can lay low, have a romantic evening, or party like a rock star. First let me start w/ a tip, when you arrive at the airport don't let any... More

If you like to relax have a drink here and there...or if you like to party and have a lot to drink here and there this is the place. This was our first time to an all inclusive resort and we loved it. Nothing is ever going to be perfect at a hotel or resort because if it is not... More

We just returned from a wonderful stay at the Execellence in Punta Cana DR. I could not say enough good things about this resort. It was our second visit here and it was even better than the last. Previously known as Secrets Excellence now just Excellence, many improvements have been made. From hammocks on the beach hung between two palm... More

We loved the tennis instructor Rolando. Thanks to him, my husband and I can play well. We also loved Andres, the sports bartender and his special drinks. They both have made our stay wonderful. We were also happy to see Alexandra, the entertainer. We had met her at Majestic last year. To see her again and to be entertained by... More

We stayed at this hotel for Christmas and New Year 2007/8. The hotel was fine and the food was good. The accommodation was good although there were a few small maintenance issues wth our room which took a while to resolve. However, my main reason for writing this review is to warn people of the sea off this hotel's beach.... More

We just arrived home and already miss the people at Excellence. First was Lisbeth- although the sun was shining every morning nothing could outshine the smile we got every morning from this wonderful girl as she escorted us to our breakfast table. Sara & Ines were so nice to be around. We would often try to sit where Sara was... More

My girlfriend and I are both around 30. I booked the trip through vacation express and I booked the airfare separate through Spirit. I saved $1,000 by doing this. Vacation express was less expensive compared to orbitz and expedia. We were in Punta Cana from April 17-24. The trip was absolutely awesome and we wish we had book for 10... More

We stayed here 3 days having spent 3 days previously at the Paradisius Palma Real which is admittedly more expensive but the Excellence in comparison is not good value for money. We had mixed feelings about the resort but would not go back and overall didn’t like it. . Firstly, what we did like were: the beach, the gym (really... More
