By far, the best trip I've ever taken to a warm climate! The water kissing the shore is much cleaner than that of Hawaii, and the temperature is like bath water. The service at this resort supersedes that of any I've ever had... they really go out of their way to make you happy. The humidity was a bit of... More

My boyfriend and I just took our first vacation together to the Excellence Punta Cana (11/6-11/10). Let me begin this review by saying that neither of us has been out of the country (except to Canada ad I've been to the Bahamas) and while we know a few words in Spanish, we are by no means fluent.

This was our first time here. Great service all around, super friendly. They are willing to go out of their way to make you comfortable. We had an issue with the a/c in the room and were upgraded to another room with better amenities. Great selection of food and drink including alcohol. It's smaller than some resorts but that's great... More

Beautiful room and quite roomy, service was above excellent, people trying to sell excursions got a little annoying but that was our only complaint and not much of one at that.

We vacationed at Excellence in Oct. 2012 with three other couples. We had a wonderful time. The manager, Roberto and public relations Vanilka were always available and ready to help us enjoy our stay and make dinner plans. The resturants, pools, beach and activities were fantastic.
