If you're staying at this resort you have to eat at the lobster house and ask for Adan. He served us everything we could have asked for and was the best service I've ever had! He was the best part about our stay. He knew the best food on the menu and even brought us out things to try! Phenomenal...

We spent a week at this resort. Had excellent service and food. Some of the staff who stand out was Junior and Jonathan in entertainment team. Hector and Edgar who were always friendly as they were bringing our drinks.

So incredibly disappointed with this hotel. We booked way in advance and made a mistake on the reservation as we booked a room for one person and there were two of us traveling. Upon arrival the hotel informed us there would be an additional $275 a night for the extra person. I showed them the current online rate and offered...

4 Stars –here are reasons I couldn’t go with 5 stars. Don’t eat at Los Olas or the Grill. They sucked. HORRIBLE GROSS FOOD. Once we learned which places were best to eat meals at, the vacation went much smoother. I chose this resort based on weeks of looking at Trip Advisor reviews. So I wanted to write my own...

The ambiance and mood of the resort is low impact and relaxing. The property is full of lovely, tropical photo ops with a backdrop of exotic trees and shrubbery or the vast oceanfront. It could be seen as a plus or minus that you will do a lot of walking to get from one area of the resort to another....

We stayed for a week and wished it could have been for much longer! The Excellence Punta Cana has everything from the amazing beach to fabulous pools, beautiful grounds, nine restaurants, great entertainment, fun activities, well stocked bars and excellent service throughout. Our favourite restaurant was Chez Isabelle where we enjoyed a fabulous meal and our waiter Joel made sure...

We travelled March 14-19. Having stayed at Excellence Playa Mujeres we knew we would not be disappointed. And we were not, a few hiccups but not disappointed. If you have travelled to the resort in Mexico (EPM) then it does not meet the standards of there....but having an open mind and know that this is also a different country might...

We so enjoyed our stay with our new friends at Excellence Punta Cana, Wil G at the front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Rigoberto at the mini bar was awesome. The accommodations were excellent. We did upgrade to the excellence club and we found it was worth it. The food was good but not great, better than Sandals or...

We booked here because of all the gluten free options and the description of this resort being a little more upscale from others. Weather was beautiful but will never choose this destination and resort again. Too many negatives for us... Beach service was extremely slow! Took 1/2-45mins to get a drink. Our room, sheets and towels smelled so awful...like mold....

From check in with Mathais, it started right. Renaldo and Charlie rounded out the front office support. I was so excited to see Altagracia as she was working the Martini bar in the central area, she is always a joy and has in great laugh. Benjamin had every performing at the best levels every day in every bar possible. Vladamir,...
