We were celebrating our anniversary and the resort was so helpful with our celebration. The ride from the airport to the resort was about an hour and really wasn't a bad ride. When we...

We took a couples trip to the Excellence Punta Cana in mid-October. If you've read any of the other reviews, I don't need to repeat a lot of the common elements, but I will tell you what made a difference to us.

Just returned with my husband from the Excellence at Punta Cana and wanted to review while all fresh in the mind.

Most of the staff were friendly...

We recently returned from our 6 night stay October 27 - Nov 1, 2012. We really enjoyed our stay and met some wonderful friends while we were there.

After having stayed at excellence cancan, this place was disappointing. We booked a king bed but was given two queens. We immediately complained and was told we had to wait until the next day for a room we booked months ago! The food was inconsistent as was the food service.
