My wife and I have just returned from our first trip to the DR and stayed at the Excellence Punt Cana. The food, pool, beach and staff were incredible. We stayed in a junior garden suite and where so happy we did not spring for the upgrades. We hardly spent anytime in the room because the grounds, beach and pool were the place to be. This place has tons of restaurants and options for eating. Our favorite was Chez Isabella and our server for two meals was Yoel Antonio. I had ribeye and my wife had salmon and both were really good. Our lunches were by the beach or at the Grill with burgers, chips, or fish. Breakfast was served in bed with eggs cooked perfect and delivered hot.
At the pool bar, Pedro took great care of us each afternoon with drinks almost waiting for us as we approached. Bring plenty of $1's for tips, although not at all required or expected. The servers work hard and get paid little, so tips are really appreciated and you will notice how quickly your drink orders are taken care of. Especially if you return to the same bars a lot.
Float in the pool or relax by the beach and life is good.
We visited with people that have been to this resort 7 times and they told us the customer service and staff continue to improve each year. The shows in the evening are fun with Circus being top-notch entertainment.
We took the Expedia Blue shuttle to and from the airport and had a perfect experience with them. We even had to be picked up at 3:00am for our flight home. Try not to book the 6:50am flight if you can avoid, but who needs sleep when your on vacation.
We only had 3 days to spend and are already looking to book an extended stay next time.
