The resort appears to be an older resort that has been updated extensively. The staff and amenities are top notch based on the half dozen all inclusive resort we have visited. The trip from PUJ airport is roughly 1.25 hrs by van or about 20 minutes if you splurge for the helicopter. Helicopter service is highly recommended for the adventurous...

The resort features a meandering pool with a variety of poolside environments and a wonderful Atlantic-side beach -- not for swimming, but the moonlit lines of surf and sound of the waves from the soft sandy cove rimmed with coconut palms and furnished with comfy thatched roof beds and lounge chairs offers privacy from vendors. Peaceful there - partying elsewhere...

We read numerous reviews before booking our stay as well as during and after. I have to say some people just shouldn't travel! I'll highlight some of the issues others have identified and our take on them. Airport - Yes, it's an hour away. People seem fussed about this. Folks - it's 90 minutes to the Mayan Riviera and no...

Yes we have been on our share of vacations. Our stay here was by far the best time we have had on vacation. We loved our room, always kept clean and well taken care of.

When my husband and I decided to get married, we planned a destination wedding and chose Excellence Punta Cana for our 10-day wedding and honeymoon trip.

This vacation was very short of being a stress free fun time for us. When we first got to the hotel ( Excellence Punta Cana) the stress began. They did not had our reservations at the reception, and the hostess at the entrance was very rude and told us to step aside, after he could not find our reservation. We...

My husband visited for 4 nights during Halloween. We were very impressed with the resort and rooms. Our room was huge and beautiful, even though we didn't have an ocean view.
