This is my second stay at an Excellence resort, and first in Punta Cana. The resort is approximately a 45 minute drive from the airport, over several narrow roads. Be prepared for that upon landing. The resort lobby is tastefully adorned and offers alcoves for quiet conversation despite its sprawling nature. The staff is extremely friendly and their English is...

All inclusive is great. The food is just ok (tons of options though), but the booze was top shelf. Beautiful beaches and pool. Haf some issues with possible mold in room but it didn't take away frim our trip. Make sure to bring allergy meds next time. But we had a blast. They need to update rooms.

We (he-56, she-50) travelled to Excellence Punta Cana from Toronto from December 21-28, 2012. All in all, an "excellent" stay an we would return. We experienced difficulties with Air Canada Vacations, however that is another story and doesn't really belong in this forum. Suffice it to say, however, that - in our opinion - their customer service is non-existent. Now,...

We stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana December 29, 2012 - January 3, 2013. This was our eighth trip to an all-inclusive resort so we are always comparing them. There was a group of six of us and we booked the trip through Marcie at Beach Bum. First, the airport is open air so there is no real gate to...

My husband and I were at Excellence Punta for 5 days to ring in the New Year. Resort staff were outstanding and very service oriented. Rooms were large and beautiful.
