My wife and I spent a week here in August and absolutely loved every minute of it. We had a beachside room and decided not to upgrade it to the concierge level. Talked to several people who did and they did not think it was any different than ours. We never had a bad meal here and never had a...

I have traveled many times to punta cana, and stayed at various resorts. The Excellence is on the pricier side, so my expectation were there.

We were at Excellence Punta Cana from Nov 17-24. It was a great week and the 10 people in my group agreed that the resort, staff, and services were enjoyable. We all upgraded to the Excellence Club which was nice as our rooms were all in the same general area of the resort. This resort is VERY spread out and...

We can't say enough good things about the people at the resort and grounds. We enjoyed the food and room service a lot. It was great laying on the beach bed while being pampered with drinks, pizza, and fruit. The nightly shows were great. I would rate this resort as 5 star, without hesitation, if it were not for the...

My husband and I loved our stay at Playa Mujeres last year so much that we planned our 5th anniversary trip here at EPC. We had an amazing week.

Excellence Resort is picturesque! Open-airy atmosphere that extends to gorgeous pool and beach. Every employee we encountered was friendly and very accommodating. This was the perfect setting for a November escape....except for...the FOOD! Fortunately, there was much to choose from, unfortunately, much of it was not very good.
