It was my husband and I’s first time at an all inclusive resort, and being out of the country. I have nothing but good things to say about the Excellence Punta Cana. Everything from the airport shuttle, to the customer service, food was amazing. All of the employees were so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this resort, or any of the Excellence locations to anyone. Thank you for an incredible vacation.

I established connection with Ismael with Season Tours before I arrived. He assured me that my husband and i will be very happy at the resort and will ensure we are taken care of. Ismael greeted us at the airport with a luxury vehicle a bottle of champagne to kick off my husband's big birtjday. Arrived at Excellence where we were greeted with more champagne and a very warm welcome by the welcome team. Right away our covid concerns dissapated as we experienced the precautions. Eddison was simply amazing at the reception. Gloria was also extremely helpful. Top notch accomodations the dining experiences at all restaurants especially Magna. Yoel Jose. Eleizer, Adan Indeera Katia, Missy, Julissa, Johnny. Victor. Jose Felix were so warm and friendly, made us feel at home, went out of their way to make the most memorable food drink and dining experiences for us. Ariel and the entertainment team are so talented and created an awesome ambiance filled with fun and entertainment. The Silent party was fun. The Aroma cafe was creme de la creme. The all you can eat bfast is the largest I've seen with the widest variety we've ever seen. The resort as a whole and our room were pristine and well kept 24/7. Pool and beach side drinks food and entertainment experiences were also amazing. Onsite covid testing was a stress free experience. Most definitely will be returning to Excellence Punta Cana. Home away from home for great pampering, fun and relaxation. Just need a little help keeping the mosquitos away. Muchas gracias!!!

Response from The Excellence Collection, Guest Services / Front Office at Excellence Punta Cana
Responded 1 Sep 2021
Dear guest, First of all, we would like to thank you for your recent stay at Excellence Punta Cana and for taking the time to share this review with the TripAdvisor community. We are very pleased to read that we surpassed your expectations successfully since the beginning. As a luxurious all-inclusive resort, we take care of every single detail in order to deliver an unforgettable guest experience, as exceptional and unique as it can be. We pay attention to offer good food quality, keep our grounds and facilities immaculate and well maintained, deliver joy through our shows and entertainment activities, and provide you with excellent service in order to exceed your expectations. In addition, it is a pleasure knowing that you thoroughly enjoyed the benefits of being an Excellence Club guest. We will pass your kind words along to the entire team. Due to the fact that the property is located in a tropical environment, the possibility of the presence of mosquitos is very high. By upholding the standards of keeping insects within the resort to a minimum level, the hotel has a specialized fumigation company which works daily to prevent this type of situation. We look forward to welcoming you back soon and have another opportunity to pamper you with our superb service. Please, receive our warmest regards from The Excellence Collection.

We were extremely happy with everything at Excellence. All staff were friendly and helpful! We very much enjoyed the entertainment staff (‘Shaggy, Nicki, 911, Black, Coke a Cola’) were all fantastic! They had activities all day and late into the night and did a great job of including everyone! We really enjoyed several of the restaurants, Spice, the Kitchen, Oregano, Lobster House and the Grill steakhouse. Grounds and rooms were very well kept. We would definitely visit again!!

Love the Excellence chain, found this resort not to be up to level of others I have been to in Cancun and Playa Mujeras. Pool NOT heated so too cold to enter in January, breakfast and lunches were buffets instead of sit down restaurants, mini bar replenishing was almost non existent, no small touches in the room like towel animals (I know that sounds silly, but what is expected from other experiences with this chain). Our swim up room received NO sunlight the entire day, so we had to leave the room to enjoy the sun, one of the reasons we upgrade to a swim up room! Drinks were very inconsistent in ingredients depending on which bar made them, some made so poorly they were actually not drinkable. Pillows were quite flat. Employees were very friendly, some making efforts to recognize you. Lovely location, beach was beautiful although red flags every day so no ability to swim in ocean.

Dear guest, First of all, we would like to thank you for choosing Excellence Punta Cana as your vacation destination and for taking the time to share this review with the TripAdvisor community. We are delighted to hear from you that you had such a great time with us and we were able to meet your expectations. Your feedback is very important to us because it gives us the opportunity to better understand the areas, we need to focus on in order to offer our guests the best experience ever. It also allows us to find out the services our lovely guests enjoy the most and therefore, we can keep on working in that direction in order to achieve our vision, which is to be the leading group in “All Inclusive Luxury Hotels and Resorts’’ in quality service. The staff members are one of the core pillars of our resort to offer an unforgettable guest experience, and their attitude is intended to exceed the expectations of all our guests and provide them with a service as personalized as possible. In addition, the food and beverage area is an important aspect we consider and that’s why our Chefs are passionate about taking care of every single detail and they personalize our service and cuisine to suit the different tastes and preferences of all our guests, although we will revise why during your getaway, we did not seem to blow you away with delicious drinks in every meal. On the other hand, we are disappointed to read that the pillows were not comfortable to rest properly, but please, rest assured that your concern has been addressed to the appropriate department to take it into consideration. Nonetheless, we would like to mention that there is a pillow menu, which every guest can choose from according to their needs. It has been a pleasure having you with us and we look forward to hosting you back soon. Please, receive our warmest regards from The Excellence Collection.

We had such a fun time at Excellence Punta Cana. The resort was beautiful! Rooms were very clean and spacious. We loved that the beach was not crowded and always had an easy time finding a spot. Like I said, the resort is absolutely beautiful but what really stood out to us was the incredible staff! They were all so welcoming and made sure we were having a great time. We would like to shout out: Felix (server), Ramirez (swim up bartender), Luis (coco-cola), 9-1-1, Shaggy (all entertainment), Ozzy (swim up bartender), Hector (swim up bartender), the maids in building 11 floor 2, and Rosa (waitress). I definitely recommend booking your next getaway at Excellence Punta Cana!

Overall recommended Great --> Grounds and stuff / Well kept resort with friendly speaking English stuff. Good --> Food was just good / decent verity but nothing to write home about. JUST OK --> Although the staff is very attentive tips are expected for every activity from bell boy to bar drinks. Different from Al Carmen we visited 3 years ago. Not that Great --> beach is gorgeous and well maintained but sea is rough with large waves. We had a red flag all 7 days and it looks like it has been there for a while.
