Wonderful Vacation

Would recommend Mon, Aug 5, 2013
This resort was great. Not the best I have been to but not far from it. If I had to nit pick about things it would be the lack of English language by the staff. It was hard to communicate sometimes as to what you wanted or were looking for. Food was fine. Buffets were tasty and there was a lot to choose from. Beef was a little suspect. I wouldnt eat it again if given the choice. Seafood was good though. Amenities were exactly as I expected them to be. Great pool and great beach. Never any crowds anywhere. More rafts for the pool would be nice though. Excellence Club was worth it in our opinion. Having all the snacks in the club, those were the best desserts in the whole place. I would reccommend this place but dont think I will return only because there there are so many other places I want to visit.

Time saver

Be prepared for a long and nausiating shuttle ride. It seems there are no traffic laws.

Excellence in Punta Cana

Would recommend Mon, Jul 15, 2013
From the first minute we arrived the staff treated us with courtesy and efficiency. The grounds were beautiful, the pool was unlike I've ever seen, they stretched throughout the entire front part of the property. Plus there was a second, smaller secluded pool as well. The beach was beautiful, the ocean was extremely wavy (we arrived a few days before Trop Storm Chantal). Our room was beautiful, full of amenities and modern appliances (one problem was shaky wi-fi throughout the grounds, obviously a minor problem). The restaurants were all great, we loved just about everything we ate Before we arrived we read that there would be problems getting places to lounge at the pool and at the beach. The beach was never close to being a problem, although the pools were usually crowded. Overall we loved the place and have already recommened it to friends.

Not so great

Would not recommend Sun, Jul 14, 2013
The main disappointment was the food. The first night I couldn't eat most of my meal and while we had some good meals later in the week nothing was excellent. My husband and I both disliked having people approach us around the resort to buy excursions. The room was good except when they forgot to leave clean towels a couple of times. It would have been much nicer for us if there had been smoking areas around the resort so that we weren't exposed to cigarette and cigar smoke in public areas. The best thing was that the staff is very friendly. The grounds are also very well maintained.

Amazing Anniversary Trip

Would recommend Sat, Jul 13, 2013
My wife and I traveled to the Excellence resort for our two year anniversary with a couple we met on our honeymoon two years ago. We had an UNBELIEVABLE time. The staff at the resort was amazing, especially Hector, Edgar, and Yerlin. They not only make you feel at home, but they desire to ensure that your trip is everything you dream it to be. The pool bars are amazing, and the restaurants, especially the Lobster House, are second to none.

Dining

Make sure to try the lobster house for dinner. Believe it or not, the lobster is awesome!

Nice Resort

Would recommend Thu, Jun 27, 2013
Beautiful Beach: deep beach with plenty of seating options and clean water. Waiter Service at the pool and beach was a nice surprise, even though we were did not upgrade to the Elegance Club. It's a long drive from the airport (1 hour), but worth it.

Dining

The breakfast buffet was very good, but the room was hot and stuffy. Get 'to go' containers and eat brekfast overlooking the beach at Las Olas.

Best vacation

Would recommend Fri, Jun 21, 2013
We stayed for 6 nights, every night we went to a different restaurant and every time we had delicious food. The portions are big and cooked perfectly. They have activities planned all day everyday that you can participate in and win prizes. The beach is very close and there is a bar always in reach. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking to have a good time without kids being around. The staff is great. Everyone is very nice and helpful.

Entertainment hint

Check out the shows they have at night. The Michael Jackson show was amazing. They are very talented.

Will never go anywhere else

Would recommend Mon, Jun 17, 2013
First, I can't believe how clean it was. They have people cleaning EVERYTHING all day, every day. The staff works a 12-16 hour day and they have smiles on their faces the entire time. The food was good, overall. Was there some stuff not that great? Sure... but I was not there for the culinary stylings of an all-inclusive resort. I was there for the atmosphere and relaxation. Still, the food was pretty darn good. We will have a hard time trying a different resort company after the service and value that we received with Excellence.

Dining

Guys, make sure to bring a pair of long pants as they have a dress code at dinner for most restaurants.

We could not of had a better time. The food was great! The whole resort was beautiful! We would go back.

Shopping hint

Great Hotel for a couple getaway

Would recommend Mon, Jun 3, 2013
Ive been to excellence palaya mujeres which was a fantastic experience so I chose to come try it again at punta cana. It was not as good but, still a great hotel with great food, drinks and WIFI!. It's all inclusive with 8 different restaurants all around in the hotel. For example, there's a beach grill, and bars are always near by. In your room, you get 24hrs room service, free mini bar and liqour bottles all included. Everynight they have an entertainment show which I enjoyed very much. Service by the pool and beach could be better but, I guess you can be asking for a lot like me.

Attractions

Use hotel tour desk attractions staff.

Nice Couples Place

Would recommend Sun, May 26, 2013
If you're a Newlywed and want to be around other Newlyweds, this is a great place or if you like to smoke cigars or cigarettes, you'll love this place. The food was average but the pool and the service was great. The Staff was very happy and wanted to please you at all times. The other problem we had were cockroaches. We complained to the Resort and they did react quickly but it didn't completely eliminate the problem. Will we go back? Probably not but if I were a Newlywed would it be a place to go? Yes.
