My family and I stayed at Excellence for 11 days in December 2012. From the moment we stepped into our suites we were extremely disappointed with the accommodations, the service, and the food. In addition on the last day we were there my mother got 250$ STOLEN from her purse at the resort. There were absolutely some good aspects to...

In looking for a resort location for my wife's birthday this past March, I came across a listing on MSN for the top 10 All-Inclusive Resorts, were I found Excellence Punta Cana was listed. Having never been to the Domincan Republic and having heard many good things about it, I research the resort from their website and other travel sites...

This is an all inclusive adults only resort that was wonderful. My favorite part were the beds with big pillows directly on the beach. The excellence club is worth the extra money. The exclusive section on the beach is fabulous with outstanding service...Antonio, you rock! They serve you drinks all day without fail as well as food from time to...

The purpose of our trip was to relax and unwind and that is exactly what we were able to do with the help of the staff at Excellence. We had a great room on the top floor with a private pool outside on a deck overlooking the ocean. Totally worth the upgrade! Even though we were not on our honeymoon,...

We stayed at Excellence for our honeymoon and had a blast. We are easy going people and know that no matter where you stay or how much you pay not everything is perfect. Also sometimes you just have to let the small things go. All in all this is a wonderful resort with a wonderful staff. Everyone was so nice...

This was our first all-inclusive trip and we now say there's no other way to go! We just came back and loved it. Food - Dinner restaurants were great. Spice was our favorite.. Agave was good. Oregano was awesome. The breakfast buffet at Toscana was delicious! Room service was usually within the half hour and good. Room - Loved it!...

We had a great time at this resort! The staff is very courteous, friendly and helpful. The resort was beautiful and clean, the staff worked around the clock to clean up and prepare for the next day. We dined at all of the restaurants except the Mediterranean and the French ones. Spice, the sushi place, was our favorite, as well...

I will forewarn you that this will be a lengthy review. I feel I need put to rest some bad reviews this place has received in the past. We took a belated Honeymoon to Punta Cana in December 2012.

The resort was beautiful and so large it isn't even necessary to leave the resort. We stayed there 5 days and I feel like I didn't even see the whole thing. Our rooms were really nice and the cleaning crew was awesome. The only problem we had was if you walk down the beach a little past the resort, there...
