My wife and I traveled to this resort for our honeymoon. We were there Dec 29 through Jan 5th. As most of the reviews say, the road to the resort is a bit bumpy but once you get there, its totally worth it. The food was pretty good, obviously being a destination for people from all over the world, they...

This is my third all-inclusive resort I have been to and highly recommend it if you are looking for a very relaxing, adults-only, smaller resort, with a beautiful beach, and top notch staff! From the minute you arrive the staff all make you feel so welcome, always have a smile, and go out of their way to make your vacation...

My husband and I stayed at Excellence Punta Cana from 3/29-4/6. I will try to briefly touch on a few points which we found to be important. The room: the beds were hard. I asked for a pillow top, which was immediately delivered. The next day, I asked for a second, which once again was promptly delivered. The beds were...

First stay at Excellence Punta Cana and overall I was very pleased. We flew in and got private taxi service through the hotel. When we arrived we had a driver waiting with a sign with our name on it. We grabbed a couple of cold beers at the shack at the airport as we knew the drive was going to...

This was our second trip to this property. The property shows signs of aging, but overall is very nice. We had an issue with the elevator in our building not working consistently. Room service and mini bar were excellent. There were changes to the beer selection from our first trip. Service was very friendly, spa was great. Bring your own...

As frequent travelers to many of the Excellence resorts, we chose Dominican Republic because we heard alot about it. Staff was very friendly, some language barriers but nothing too crazy. My husband & I actually made a joke out of it. We were greeted after an hour long ride from the airport with 2 glasses of cold champagne. We arrived...

My husband and I stayed here with another couple. The ride from the airport is over an hour, & MAKE SURE you prearranged this or you will get harassed at the airport. The resort itself was very welcoming, I do recommend the Excellence Club upgrade. The alcohol in the rooms is better, the location of your room is better, the...

3/12/13 - 3/19/13 This is the first review that we have written together. We are from NYC. We checked Trip Advisor before we chose this hotel, and found most of the reviews to be fairly accurate. Overall, the hotel met our every expectation. This beautiful, low key hotel is at the end of Punta Cana, about an hour taxi ride...
