Kassandra, shaky, nicke Minaj , junior, Jackie. Dominicana , hector, Carmen, Danny, delvis, Edgar, Dionel, roxoanna, wilquin brito, Benjamin, Carmen, felix, andreina, kioman, Edwin, Palma, Marcos. these are the people we dealt with on a daily basis and they made our trip so much more enjoyable than we could have imagined. they made the days fun and exciting while relaxing at the same time. the drinks were never empty and the food service was amazing as well as the food itself. I couldn't have asked for a better staff to be on during our stay. the facility was amazing. the bars and restaurants were clean at all times. my overall experience was 5 stars all the way. I hope to revisit one day and see everyone that made our trip so special. thank you again to everyone mentioned above and to everyone that I did not mention. the staff was beyond amazing even if they are not in this review.

Hotel's Favourite
We just returned from 8 days at El Carmen with two of our best friends. From the check-in to the check-out, we couldn't have been more pleased. The resort was beautiful, the beach picturesque, the food very good, but what really made our stay "EXCELLENT" was the wonderful staff. Even with the COVID precautions, I felt very comfortable with their attention to making it a safe, but enjoyable environment. We loved Magna, Chez Isabelle, Lobster House. The Management Staff, Serving Staff, Housekeeping, Entertainment Staff & Spa Staff went above and beyond to treat us as "FAMILY". Here are a few of the employees who treated us like royalty: Management staff: Felix Sanchez, Jose Luis Piz, Marlon & Angel and all the front desk staff went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful Entertainment Staff: Junior, Niky Minaj, Shaky Shaky, Jackie Brown, Kassandra were so much fun and always were there to encourage us to participate. Excellent Club staff: Benjamin & Joendrey made us the most delicious drinks and told some funny stories. Serving Staff: There really wasn't one staff member that did not make us feel like "family". Everyone was wonderful. Here are some of our very favorite who went above and beyond: Delvi, Carmen, Joel, Aurelia, Victor, Danny Boy, Francheska, Proffete, Edgar, Domenigo, Lisamar, Osvaldo, Carmen & Ramon Aroma: Dionel made our breakfast coffee every morning with a smile. Spa Staff: Sonia, Carolyn and the other massage therapist whose name we can't remember, were wonderful Looking forward to returning very soon! Thank you.

Truly a five star resort. Go ahead and treat yourself!! Take advantage of staying in a swim up sweet well worth the extra expense. So cleaning all staff was respecting corvid protocols never once did I feel at risk.

Had an absolutely great time here. We stayed for 5 days in an Excellence Club 2 Story beach front and we loved it. The mini bar was always stocked, well maintained grounds, and the cleaning team was awesome. The Excellence club benefits were worth it in my opinion. Drinks every where were amazing - CocoLoco's, Mojito's, Carnavalins The staff here is fantastic! Felix, Delvis, Junior, Eliezer, Natali, Yoel, Luis Manual, Danny! Honestly everyone. They all made it a point to learn your name and make sure everything was taken care of for you. The resort's app was extremely helpful and needed during the stay - you could see what restaurants were open along with their menu and dress code. Top ones- Chez Izabelle and Magna, Oregano and Sports Bar. The room service was so good! - Wish we could order room service through the app! Or drinks at the beach through it. Excellent shows! Loved the Michael Jackson one. I don't want to say anything negative as I had a wonderful time, but, the outside beach vendors hound you every 10minutes, which made us spend more time in our room's pool and and the main pool so we wouldn't be bothered. It made it harder to relax. Also, I think at the buffets and restaurants in general, the food temperature could be worked on, somethings were hot while others were cold, a little inconsistent-- None of this though would deter us from coming back. We would definitely come back to this resort! We had a very positive experience and relaxing, nice trip!

Excellence was amazing! The staff was friendly and attentive, especially Danny Boy, Carmen, Antonio, and Palma. The entertainment staff made everything so fun-Junior 69, Niki Minaje, Coca Cola, Sheky-Sheky, Kaddandra, and Jacke Brow. The resort felt safe as the staff and facilities took great detail to be masked, socially distant, and thoroughly cleaned. It was the escape we absolutely needed! Thank you!
