My husband and I stayed here from December 28 to January 4. I booked in August as a little celebratory get away for us. We flew through Transat Vacations. Book the Excellence Club upgrade. It is worth it!! I am going to do this review a little different than I have my others. I will list first, the things I...

For starters, I must say I'm a little more difficult to please, but I'm not overly picky. I am from a food and beverage background and have also worked in a corporate office for a hotel management company. Consider this a very honest review. I booked the trip for my husband's 30th birthday back in July and have read reviews...

First let me state the name of the resort says it all when it comes to service. Excellence was recommended to me by a former co-worker, and we were not disappointed with the experience. Kudos to the entire staff of this resort. Special recognition to some of those that stood out and made our experience that much more pleasant: Miguel...

Most of the reviews I have seen have given the Excellence Punta Cana very high ratings, but in my opinion it is not a luxury five-star resort. I went with my boyfriend for 5 nights in January. The positives: Beautiful beach & weather - The beach was gorgeous, with soft, light golden sands and turquoise water. The water looked a...

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,...

“I would suggest a first floor with a pool view so you can basically walk out on your patio then your 10 feet from the Pool.”
