Resort was beautiful. Rooms were great. Oceanview was barely an ocean view. Restaurants were difficult to get into and food was just "alright". This place is very new so expect things will improve. Pools were great and bars had lots of delicious varieties.

We recently stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana for 6 nights and really enjoyed ourselves! The resort accommodations were great and everything met my expectations! It ended up being fairly rainy but activities kept us busy. The entertainment crew, especially LG and Epophany were wonderful!! Melania our housekeeper kept our room exceptionally clean, and we appreciated her tremendously! The staff...

Came for our 20th Anniversary. Upgraded to a suite with private pool upon arrival. No maid service the first full day we stayed. We're told we could not have the anniversary package because we upgraded and we're only staying 6 nights instead of 7. Had to provide our marriage license upon arrival but not sure why since we did not...

Had a very nice experience. Nice rooms. The staff was very accommodating especially Reynaldo. Food was good for an all inclusive. It's not as good as we have had on cruises or other resorts but nothing to complain about. Overall service from staff was great. Loved the layout of resort. Nothing was too far to get to. Beds were comfortable...

Our stay at Excellence was excellente! We arrived on Nov 23 which was the first sunny day after many weeks of rain from Hurricane Mathew. There was a small lake of water about waist deep on the road to the entrance into the resort but there was no issues with flooding inside the resort. The beach was very private and...

Well what to say that has not been said before... How about what I say now will not be how it is after this upcoming summer. Renovations are set to begin next summer and Excellence will close for 4 months making the place look more modern. Will it be the same only better? Time will tell but I sure hope...

I went here for 11 days with my wife. There's no kids, which is nice as we left our 3 at home and didn't have to neither see nor hear other people's kids. Drinks come as fast as you want, and the pool is nice with a bar you can swim up to. We ordered the upgraded excellence pack, so...

Wow. This place was amazing. We stayed for 5 days for a wedding and loved every minute. We chose to upgrade to the Excellence Club which grants you access to the exclusive club area, a newspaper everyday, premium liquor in your room, horseback riding on the beach, and a couples massage. Definitely worth the upgrade. The restaurants were all top...

We just returned home from our honeymoon at the Excellence Resort. We had such a great time at the resort and are so thankful for such great outdoor covered spaces, so even if it's raining you can travel around the resort and not get rained on. We had an excellent time getting to know Will Carlos and Hector at the...
