We have just returned from our 3rd visit to Excellence and it just gets better and better. We travel as 2 couples and from the minute we arrived we could not have asked for any more. What was so nice was how many of the staff recognised us and we were constantly referred to as part of the family. We... More

We have a small family and decided to do a destionation wedding on the beach. Not even Hurricane/Tropical Storm Sandy stopped us from having the time of our lives. The staff were more than friendly, our drinks were topped off before they were even empty. Look for Super Willy if you choose to stay here - he will ensure you... More

First the good: The service was impeccable here. You can order food and drinks from literally anywhere on the resort, whether you're in your room, at the pool, or lying on the beach. The staff is beyond friendly, and they are very engaging. The rooms were nice, clean, and spacious. The little towel sculptures and rose petals they'd leave on... More

This has already been our 6th visit to Excellence Punta Cana. We visited the hotel for the first time in 2003 and since then have come back approximately every 2 years. We have been to other all inclusive resorts in Mexico (e.g. Secrets Maroma) or Saint Lucia (Anse Chastenet). However, Excellence Punta Cana seems to be our ideal holiday spot... More

Went here w/ my wife of 5 years for our anniversary. Appears that almost everyone here was either on their honeymoon or anniversary so quite popular on that front! We went with the VIP Club route that got us a nice room upgrade, upgraded mini bar, and an anniversary package that included a spa massage, beach dinner and champagne breakfast... More

We just returned from a week at the excellence for our honeymoon. We reluctantly upgraded to the "excellence club" due to past trips where all it got you was a separate counter to check In. This was completely different. We were guided to a special wing/room of the resort and given the option for food and drink immediately. We did... More

Although I didn't expect a trip from the airport to the hotel that took over an hour, the property is beautiful and you are greeted with a flute of champagne as you walk up the steps to the lobby.
