Not bad but save some money and go somewhere else

This is a nice resort situated more on the atlantic than the carribbean side of the ocean. The beach is pretty but large waves and big under tow keep red flags up year round. So don't expect to snorkel onsite easily. And those free water sports look good on paper. Also no Jetski rental onsite. The pool is nice, large, even has free rafts. The seating and bedding around pool is very nice and also on beach if you book an excellence club room. We felt the food was not that awesome. The service was not fast either. We were always waiting for them to just bring us even water when we sat down. The no reservations are required at restaraunts is nice but doesn't mean you won't have to wait like back home. The swim up bar is a plus but the bartenders usually only make like 1 drink at once it seemed like. Free horseback ride we got was great and we booked a sunset ride as well. Room had some interesting features but A/C worked enough and minibar as stocked well. Staff would openly take tips compared to other all inclusives that frown on that. For the price it should be truely all inclusive. Nightly entertainment seems better than maybe cheaper resorts. Compared to other trips to all inclusives we felt we didn't get our monies worth. This brand is not worthly of these rates yet.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

We use prestige limo for private transfers and they provided very good and afforable transfer. In a private transfer zooming around cars and mopeds still took 50 mins to get to resort, expect shared transfers to take as much as 1.5 hrs.

Good for 3 or 4days

If you stay only at the hotel without going out, it's perfect. Ocean was a little bit rough, so we couldn't swim. The lagoon at the hotel was nice.

Great trip

The beach, food, room were excellent. If I wanted to get picky the bed and pillows could have been better. The only real complaint that I could have and I have been to another Excellence property in Mexico is that some of staff were unfriendly . But that being said other members of the staff were exceptional including Omar and Gabriel serving drinks on the beach. Would definitely go back. One other thing -the drive from the airport is one hour plus.

Nice hotel. However it is not a five star.

This hotel seems to very old and the rooms are a bit run down. Dont count on having internet acess at this hotel. Room service on average is about a two hour wait and the order was wrong seven out of eight times we ordered. Over all i would give the food a B- and room service food a C. That staff at this hotel do an excellent job and the people in the region are some of the nicest we have ever met.

Second visit

My husband and I have been to this resort twice - in 2009 & 2012. Both times were wonderful. The location and ambiance are unbeatable!! The rooms are decent. We usually stay 5 star and the rooms are not 5 star, but they are good enough for the value of the all-inclusive price. They are clean, but the quality of products (the bed) are okay. The staff is amazing!! They make the vacation amazing!! The staff is incredibly kind and accomodating. It was refreshing to see some of the same staff members (Mario at the bar) that we met 3 years ago. The food is wonderful at the Lobster House, the Mexican and French restaurants. We also enjoyed the lunch buffet best. The ground floor rooms with the hammocks are great- especially if you have an ocean view!! The activities are endless and the staff make everything even better!!! We will definitely be going back!

Excellent!

We had stayed at the Excellence in Playa Mujeres and enjoyed our experience there so we gave the Excellence in Punta Cana a try. We were also highly impressed with our stay at the Excellence in Punta Cana. Not as updated as the resort in Playa Mujeres but still nice and had more amenities available on the grounds than in Playa Mujeres.

The Excellence is "Super Excellente!"

We can not say enough about this resort. From check-in to check-out, everything was perfect. You couldn't ask for nicer people, better food or service! Don't miss out on the coco-loco or saying hi to the crew at Kafe Cafe!
