Relaxing and lazy vacation

The staff was fantastic, always in a good mood. The food offered for lunch and dinner was great, with a variety of selection, everything wonderful (especially the desserts). Breakfast wasn't on par with the other meals though but ok, lacking things we take for granted as typical American staples. The location of the restaurants was really nice, very convenient. The resort was perfect for relaxing, with no incessant hounding to join in activities. However there was a wide variety of things to do, spread from mid-morning through late night. The hotel was perfect for relaxing and doing as much or as little as you want. All of the building interiors were spectacular, from the lobby to the rooms. We got the lowest grade room available but it was still luxurious. Most days we'd come back to the room to see towels made up as swans, or rose petals on the sink and bed. We always had a handful of small bugs crawiling around the sink though. We went from Sept. 4th - Sept. 9th 2009, just as the rainy season is really getting underway. Our experience with rain was mostly isolated from late night through early morning, with it raining most nights. The power did go out for a few minutes here and there, once or twice during heavy rain, other times when it was sunny out. Believe this is common with the Dominican Republic as a whole. The main pool was amazing as well, stretching across most of the resort. The beach area was wonderful. More than enough chairs and cabanas to go around, at least at this time of year. The sand was superb. We've been to a handful of tropical beaches but something about the softness of their beach really stood out. Of note is the fact that an artist sets up some gorgeous paintings along the beach. If only it was easy to ship them home. The location of the resort itself is both good and bad. It's nice that it's away from everything but it does take a little over an hour by car from Punta Cana airport. Can't say enough about all-inclusive resorts.

Nice stay, but not exceptional

One of the better resorts in the DR but keep in mind that this is by DR standards. Staff was extremely friendly and engaging. The food was good but not stellar; some of the food wasnt good at all. Rooms are nice and some have nice patios. Fairly clean for the most part but the water situation in the DR makes it inadvisable to use the jacuzzis in the rooms. Good entertainment and activities. The resort is fairly isolated from the areas where most of the other resorts are (one hour ride from the airport). Next time I would probably go to a resort in the Bavarro region since they are grouped together and offer different combinations of activities.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Arrange transportation to and from the airport beforehand using Cocotours or another such company because they will only charge $35-$45. Taking a cab will cost $70 and the ride will be the most dangerous you will ever take in a car. The resort is one hour away from the airport.

The hotel offered very little on site activities. The staff were very hard to communicate with, since they did not understand any English. Lack of proper air conditioning.

The Ultimate All Inclusive Vacation

Compared to other all inclusive resorts that I have stayed at, this was the most inclusive! Premium liquor, minibar, room service, snacks in the rooms, robes and even slippers! The quality of the food was great, and the service staff was very friendly and accomodating. The resort is in a very wonderful & beautiful setting in a tropical location where your dreams can come true.

Excellence for sure

It doesn't get any more beautiful or relaxing. The resort and its staff are dedicated to making you happy and it's just perfection here. Excellence in Mexico was the same way. Beautiful and peaceful.

Hobie Cat Sailing was great, but they do not train you. You must be a seasoned sailor to enjoy it - they may upgrade them soon, but for now it's only a 14ft. Ask for [...], he's the best staffer at the Dive Shop Area. Also, since the resort is North of Barvaro Beach, it's a long ride up - but worth it!!!

"Unbeatable location for the price"

We had read some reviews about the drive to the hotel, the staff ect. Sure there were bumps in the road, a few things may not have been perfect but over all everything at Club Excellence was top notch. Even though all was inclusive we tipped some help here and there. Also did not go with any expectations. All we can say is that it was a wonderful resort, the staff was excellent and went out of the way to make you feel comfotable, also the food was great. We met some very nice people from other areas also on vacation. Dominican people are wonderful. Some language differences but we also learned some Spanish along the way. We took a few day trips and it makes you feel lucky for what you have. 100% would go back.
