The room, the food (OMG the food!), the grounds, the spa, the pools, the beaches…. It’s all exquisite. The people who work there are the nicest people you’ll ever meet. It’s by far my favorite place that I have ever stayed. I can’t wait to come back!

Well, where to start. Has been awhile since we have been on a vacation. A great one at that. The Covid thing has put a damper on travel. We booked thru AAA travel out of Fayetteville with Lauren. She was a great help in finding the right spot. We flew out of Charlotte on American Airlines. Getting thru airports are a mess. We had transport to the hotel by a driver that could have driven in nascar. He was a driver that knew his way around for sure. When we arrived we were greeted by the general manager with a very friendly smile and a glass of great champagne. To the check in desk with no problems. We had room 10106 ocean front with the greatest of views. Room was extremely clean. Full bar with large bottles of top shelve delights. Fridge was full of snacks, coke, diet coke, water and mixers. Air worked great. Had soaking tub present. Had a great rainfall shower..Plenty of towels to spare! Everything a person could want was present in the room with a king size bed. There were many well maintained pools with plenty of seating in and out of the sun. The beach was close by. Sand was brown in color and the ocean water was warm and the normal Atlantic ocean type of color.. Only bad part was all the seaweed ! Tons of it!-----Their beach front was very long for long strolls. There were numerous bars around and plenty of staff that would fill your needs for drinks. Are staff always were smiling and helpful with any questions or needs that you may have. There are ten restaurants on site with anything that your stomach could desire. Plates were full and they would give you more if you needed. Again let me tell you that the staff was the best i have ever encountered. They made sure you were taken care of from all aspects of your stay. I could keep on and on telling you how great this experience was, but the best would be for you to travel to this great spectacular resort. They do take excellent care of you. This was an unforgettable stay

Wonderful stay for our first trip to an Excellence resort - it won’t be our last! Pros: location - GORGEOUS, pools were sparkling, grounds were beautifully manicured and constantly being tended, and the beach was cleaned of seaweed daily Amazing staff (really - everyone was super friendly and helpful!) Here were a few of our favorites: Stephanie at Magna Jubelkis at Sports Bar Jorgy at Spice Pikachu - aqua fun (water aerobics) Jose Miguel at Flavor Market Francis and Abismael at Excellence Club Lounge - BEST bartenders Great variety of activities - enjoyed the pools and beach, water aerobics, tennis, bike riding, gym Beautiful grounds - loved the ecological park with all the birds and turtles Spa - the massages were fantastic and you MUST try the hydrotherapy! Housekeeping/daily turn down - all requests were handled quickly and the room was tidy twice a day, which was great. Entertainment - super fun, loved all the different shows - don’t miss the fire show for sure! Great cocktails and we had good wine too Fabulous desserts Transportation through Seasons Tours (arranged by resort) was super nice - black Suburban there, black Escalade on return to airport Cons: The humidity was awful (I know, they can’t control the weather) but it was bad in our room too - the AC couldn’t be adjusted lower (only gave options to adjust it 2 degrees at all and it just couldn’t keep up with the humidity. Everything felt damp (damp sheets… ugh) and things like towels and swim suits didn’t dry. This made it hard to sleep. It also made everything seem musty, which was too bad because everything else about the room was very nice. Food was just okay - best meals were at Magna, The Grill and the hibachi at Spice. We must be used to a lot of seasoning/salt because things often seemed bland. Presentation was always very nice though. Bugs - WEAR BUG SPRAY. I brought home souvenirs of lots of no see um bites. The excellence club concierge on the beach and by the pool did have bug spray available.

Visited Excellence Playa Mujeres three years ago and was so excited to try Punta Cana. It was hugely disappointing. Resort was not well kept, rotting deck boards, screws coming out, mold and cockroaches in the room. Excellence Club pools were nice, ocean was warm and fun to surf waves. Drinks were so-so. Kelvin at the pool bar was great. Staff was kind. Here’s the problem: the food is dreadful. Luke warm to cold, missing ingredients, covered up ingredients like “wasabi” which we figured out was green colored cream cheese. Breakfast at the buffet was ok, the least disappointing. Raw burgers at Las Olas. Magna was terrible, French was passable, Spice and the Grill tasteless. Room service lunch was decent but we didn’t figure that out until the last day. Gym was nice. We tipped the staff well because it’s not their fault that the food is so very bad. We will not return.
