We read all the reviews before choosing Excellence and we were very impressed with this resort. Yes, sometimes the road is rough and windy (I took Dramamine, but I don't know that it was necessary), but we enjoyed the fact that the resort was far from any major city. For us, we were most impressed by the friendly staff. They...

We arrived Dec. 1st from Boston and thank goodness we traveled then as it started snowing and was really cold in Boston. We arrived at PUJ and we are glad we booked a van ahead of time because there was a mob of people trying to get us to take us to our resort. We booked with Dominican Shuttles and...

A family wedding brought us to this resort. The wedding planner did an awesome job; the wedding gazebo was nicely decorated, the pre-dinner location and snacks were good (best food of the week), dinner and cake were both good. She/they did a sweet job decorating the post wedding dinner table. The Dominican dinner on the beach was the other highlight....

Excellence was just that! The resort was amazing. The staff were all very helpful and so polite. The concierge remembered us 5 days after our arrival and even remembered our room number without asking! There were plenty of staff to accomodate all the guests with minimal wait times at bars/restaurants. The beach was great. White manicured sand (thanks to the...

Lovely hotel, wonderful staff and all inclusive. For us this is a simple, affordable, one flight getaway. Food fine but not top of the line. Drinks all top shelf. Bring a good book or two and relax. Highly recommended by both my husband and myself. This is our second year and we are booked for 2013. See you there!

Excellence Resort – Punta Cana – Nov 30 to Dec 7, 2012-12-13 Well let me start by saying that I can’t compare to other Punta Cana resorts as this was our first time visiting. We were there with 2 other couples and the drive from the airport (we took a private cab for the 6 of us) was not a...

This was my first experience at an all-inclusive resort and my first time in Punta Cana. Since this was my 30th birthday trip, I booked a year in advance through a travel agent. After reading numerous reviews right up until the day I left, I was a bit concerned about mosquitos and the bed. I, however, have absolutely no complaints...

“We had a courtyard view. But we were only in the room to sleep and get ready for the evening. So the view wasn't a problem.”
