Arrived here on 13th for our 5th visit. Since last year there have been a few changes and all for the better. Rooms have been rennovated. Gone are the old-fashioned four posts on the beds and lovely new mattress. Gone are the pillars around the in-room whirlpool bath (shame didn't get rid of those as they were at it). New...

My husband surprised me with a trip to Excellence Punta Cana for a landmark birthday. It was an amazing trip! From the minute we pulled up in the cab from the airport, we were greeted by the friendliest staff I have ever experienced. We have stayed at all-inclusive properties in Mexico, Jamaica, St. Thomas, etc. but this was over the...

We chose this resort because we had stayed at an Excellence resort in Cancun and loved it there. We were disappointed. Upon checkin, they had no idea we were arriving. This is probably because they have no control over transfers, hence they don't know who is flying in when. It seems with the amount of money one is spending to...

We stayed at Excellence, Punta Cana from January 4-11 and we reserved a Club Excellence room. Our room was 8008 and it was so very convenient.
