We spent a long weekend at Excellence and must say it was excellent. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you have a great vacation. The hotel, pool and beach are well maintained. I am a freak about clean hotel rooms and was very pleased with the garden view suite we had. The only thing I did...

We just got back from our stay at the Excellence. It was a combination wedding/honeymoon, so we had some high expectations with this vacation. Beautiful resort, much bigger than we're used to. Service was fantastic, we stayed in the Excellence Club to go with our wedding package. There is a private concierge and check-in, plus a second floor with a...

My wife and I travelled to the Excellence in a party of 14 for our son Matthew's marriage to his fiance Nicola. From our first arrival we were treated to a Champagne experience that never stopped. The reception staff were extremely efficient and before we knew it we were being shown to our room which was on the 2nd floor...

I can not understand some of the more negative reviews - one said there were no top quality drinks being served???? Corvoisier congnac, Tanqyuery and Bombay Sappire gin, Absolut vodka, JD, Drambuie to name just a few - what more do you want? The food is very good and well presented, Chez Isabella serves a meal with wine that would...

We just got back from Excellence, Punta Cana last night. There were six of us and we stayed from Saturday through Saturday. It was the first time we went based on the suggestion of the other two couples who both went to Excellence Cancun twice. One the way out, the guest services lady asked me to write this review.

Just back from 7 days at Excellence Punta Cana. We had a good time and truly thought the resort was just beautiful. The pool was nice, although there weren't enough floats to go around, but not a terrible tragedy. The service was "excellent" and we would suggest that anyone wanting to stay here, should. The only WARNING is DON'T FORGET...

I don't know where "Anonymous A" is coming from with his/her review, but it certainly seems he/she is so pissed off at something, that it is unfortunately clouding his/her objectivity. This was my sixth trip to Excellence, and I have visited 4 or 5 other resorts in Punta Cana, so I have a pretty good basis for comparison. It's not...

This was a much anticipated trip. A bucket list item! We read reviews almost up to the day we left. You have to go just to find out why everyone says it is Excelente!
