I was travelling with my husband, my college age daughter and her friend. Upon arrival at the hotel we were greeted with welcome cocktails and swiftly moved off to the Excellence Club Concierge lounge. We had booked two Club Junior View Suites and they had even put ours next door to one another. Concierge staff was friendly and welcoming. As...

The resort is gorgeous. Clean. Great grounds. Great restaurants. Great staff. Great food. Specifics: Food Allergy: I am celiac / gluten free. On arrival, the concierge gave me a business card with gluten in Spanish. This helped avoid any confusion at restaurants. When I would show it, the head waiter would come to make sure everything was safe and ok....

My wife took me here for my 50th birthday...our first trip away from our 4 year old daughter. It was an absolute treat! It was All-Inclusive and Adults-only and it really made a huge difference. We met a lot of similar people from all over the world. The beaches were gorgeous, the water a little rough...since it's on the north-facing...

We visited Excellence Punta Cana in late November/early December for our honeymoon. We decided to use the Excellence's honeymoon registry for our wedding and our experience was disappointing and incredibly frustrating. First of all, there is a lack of staff training on how to facilitate linking the registry to a hotel account. We did not receive confirmation of our registry...

We are currently at this resort. We stayed at the Excellence Playa Mujeres for our honeymoon 9 years ago and had the most wonderful experience. Unfortunately Excellence Punta Cana doesn't compare. The staff isn't rude but definitely not friendly. We had a leak in our ceiling with water pouring out the first day. They did change us to another room...

We just returned. We really liked the place. The people were the most friendly and helpful we have ever encountered, We thought the pool, the beach and the gym were outstanding. The grounds were beautiful. We understand there will be some updating. That will be a good thing. Now what we felt fell short. We were disappointed with the food....

I want to extend our sincere appreciation to the staff at the Excellence Punta Cana for a wonderful vacation and anniversary experience. We were expertly driven to the resort by Jose from season tours. Upon arrival we were greeted with a big "Welcome Home" and a glass of champagne. We checked in at the Excellence Club main reception area. The...
