At Excellence El Carmen you are secluded but not isolated. Our all-adult, all-suite world is situated on a beautiful Caribbean beach in a palm grove on the east coast of the Dominican Republic. Its architecture is in the contemporary Caribbean style, and twenty pools wind through our grounds. There are 11 restaurants to entice you with a range of global cuisine, a beach snack grill, plus 15 bars.

Hotel's Favourite
stayed to excellence El Carman from 7/25 to 7/30 in a beach front swim out suite and was as advertised from being picked up with the private SUV to the end taken back to the airport in a private SUV. the room was great nice bed and great walk in shower and what a view over looking the pool and seeing the beach and sea. the grounds were taken care of well and all the restaurants were good but the best was the flavor market a must try if you go. would say staying in the beach front rooms with your private pool you share with 5 others rooms was great we had bar service coming to us we did not have to go to the bar the bar came to us and we had a man named Edger who always had my Mai Tai and my wife's coconut water without delay always a pleasure to tip him and all the restaurant servers but Edger always went out of his way for us, too bad most people here do not tip its a shame they should tip these hard working people . will visit again soon

Resort was clean, fun activities including the awesome silence disco party. Swim up suite was well suited and stocked bar/fridge was a plus. The Grill was my favorite restaurant, staff was very attentive all over the resort. I highly recommend the spa services.
