We had a wonderful break from our real lives by escaping to the beach - not just any beach but the gorgeous beach of Excellence El Carmen. The staff, the food, the drinks and the overall ambiance did wonders for our covid-fatigue! It was a pleasure to just relax. We have been vaccinated, and from what I have read the staff at Excellence have also been vaccinated, so it felt safe to take a break from masks (the hotel staff ALL wore masks). It was also not at all crowded, which helped a lot. The room and the grounds were immaculate! I wish I were still there now!!!

Hotel's Favorite
We’ve spent two weeks here in our COVID getaway holidays escaping cold Switzerland to celebrate our 20 years anniversary and we couldn’t have made a better choice. From the first moment on we were treated like royalty, but without any groveling. You just feel like the guest of honor and a family member at the same time! The employees here are superbly trained and really know how to do their job. In need of a friendly smile? Just walk up to any employee, from the ladies serving in a restaurant to the hardworking men cleaning the beaches, from housekeeping to engineering, from entertainment staff to bar keepers, you will get a friendly greeting and a smiling face from every one of them. They are genuinely happy and also proud to work in such a great hotel and it shows in their politeness towards the guests and their welcoming behaviors. I’d like to praise some employees we had more contact with, but I’m positive that all the other ones are great, too : Ines, Jenzi and Alberich at the beach, Jennifer, Ylda, Roberta, Karina, Delvis, Ruth, Wandy and Ranphi in the waiter’s group, Ramon our breakfast cook, Natalia at the excellent club reception, Kassandra, Checky and Junior from the entertainment team, Hernandez, who took care of our pool, Rosanna mixing our afternoon’s drinks and and and....Our room, club suite with swimmup pool, 9075, was spacious, always spotlessly cleaned, well equipped with premium spirits, facing the ocean, providing spectacular views of the beach, left nothing to be desired. We can recommend this fine resort to everybody seeking a fantastic getaway location and adult-only setting to relax and unwind, if you can’t enjoy a vacation here, I wouldn’t know where....We’ll be back! Just one thing to improve: please stop using plastic bottles for water, switch to glass. Luxresorts.com have managed to do so, it’s beneficial for the environment and helps reduce garbage. Yes, it has an investment cost, but it pays off on the long run....

We stayed for 11 days at the Excellence El Carmen. Apparently this is an uncommon length of stay, but it was our honeymoon and first trip away alone in the 10 years we've been together so it was needed. The service was incredible and all the staff members are so cheerful and friendly! Due to COVID the resort was only at 50%-60% capacity. The resort is very clean and I felt very safe the entire time. We took full advantage of our rooftop terrace with plunge pool. This suite was well worth it for us because we stayed for so long, but I think our suite or any of the swim up suites would also be great for group vacations. We opted for the upgraded Excellence Club which I highly recommend! This provided us with access to an addition restaurant and beach areas, among many other things. We really felt like the staff at Excellence El Carmen went out of their way to ensure we have a special honeymoon. We enjoyed spa services, breakfast in bed and a romantic dinner on the beach. Overall it was a wonderful time and a great resort!
