Let me first say we've never stayed at an all inclusive before, in fact never outside of the United States. Let me get the few negatives out of the way. The food is across the board, marginal. The best bet was the buffet. All the restaurants were the same so-so foodarranged in different ways. Its ok, certainly edible. I was...

My wife and I just got back from our honeymoon stay at Excellence Punta Cana, and could not have been more pleased with the whole atmosphere, the amenities, the restaurants, and the excellent customer service (Luis stuck out as our favorite bartender, made us feel like we were the only couple in the resort, and took care of us no...

Returned on Saturday, 10/20/12, from EPC. We had a swim up pool room (not really) you cannot actually swim up from the pool into your room (as the pictures represented). I felt the rooms were a little run down, but cannot say enough about the staff. Yanilka was AMAZING. We had a large group of 16 and she helped make...

My girlfriend and I went to Excellence Dominican Republic in September of 2010! Very Very late post. The reason I decided to create an account and post about EPC is because we decided to return. We'll be returning December 12!! People with negative reviews about this place are basically negative people. With that being said this resort is perfect from...

I just returned from my first trip to this area and first at an all inclusive. The resort lobby and common areas are very nice but the rooms seem to be a bit dated. Not sure why an adult resort has double beds in it, but ours did, not excited about that. Smelled musty too and the pillows were horrible....

Wow! This property has the wow factor. This is our third day and we are treated like royalty. The room is spacious, clean, cool in temperature, and we have a fantastic view.
