Staff extremely cordial. You would believe that the term "bad day" doesn't exist to them. Every morning is a Buenos Dias. Everyone greets you with a smile.

Paradise for 10th wedding anniversary

This is our third trip to the caribbean for an all-inclusive and it was by far the BEST! The staff is stellar, we never wanted for anything. Examples- mini bar stuffed to overflowing each day, hot bubble bath prepared while we were at dinner, cushions brought to us for the chaise lounge chairs on beach, food was delicious...we know 3 couples who have gone to Punta Cana and all got sick at other resorts- i drank the restaurant water like a fish and was fine! (they tell you to use bottle water in your room- and we did do that.) beach was clean and enormous but rough. my husband loved riding the waves.

Excellence, Punta Cana

Beautiful hotel; staff very friendly and helpful; extra activities available or do nothing but take in the sun, no pressure.. Some caveats: Room A.C. underpowered (can get pretty warm in rooms at times) Food at some restaurants not great (Stick to grill, pan-asian and mediterranean) Again, the service provided by the staff was outstanding (enough for us that we plan on returning)

Secluded Paradise

July 2009 - We have been to the islands 15 times now and we enjoyed this resort very much. Loved the fact that their isn't any other hotels anywhere near this resort which means a beautiful and secluded beach. The entertainment was entertaining, don't expect Las Vegas quality. They did have fireworks on the beach on the 4h of July, a nice touch. The restaurants were good and you did not have to make reservations. The resort was very clean and the people were "Excellente". Plenty to do at the resort so you won't have to go into town. The locals can be a bit pushy selling their stuff. The weather this time of year can me quite muggy but we did not have any mosquito issues. Do not wear flip flops on the wet tile floors if it rains. I slipped down the stairs and had to make a trip to the local hospital. ALthough they were very nice it was not a place you would want to go for a serious injury. Made the trip by taxi avoiding a few mules, horses, dogs and people in the roads. Go, enjoy and have fun. We saw Pedro Martinez there!

Absolutely amazing!

Our honeymoon at Excellence, Punta Cana was more than we could have hoped for! The staff went out of their way to give us everything we wanted and needed. The service was impeccable and each staff member greeted us with a smile and a warm, happy attitude, from the beach servers to the BBQ chefs to the bartenders. The food and drink choices were incredible, the entertainment was always exciting, and the grounds are beautiful and spotless (they are ALWAYS cleaning). There is always something to do, pool and beach volleyball, poolside dance lessons, shows at night, beach games, bbqs on the beach, Spanish lessons, and the staff will always join in. Your food options are endless, elegant dining to linen tableclothed bbqs on the beach. The beach is spotless and the service is astounding, from the drinks brought to you constantly to the helpers who will fluff your towels for you. Please always remember that even though it is an all-inclusive a small tip of a dollar or two means the world to the people who are treating you like kings and queens. It is worth every penny! Please be kind and polite to the wonderful people who work there. They work really hard and deserve a tremendous amount of respect. A please and thank you in Spanish is easy to learn! Have a wonderful time, enjoy every minute! We did and will go back as soon as we can!

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Wear sunscreen!!! Drink tons of bottled water each day so you don't dehydrate. Put ALL valuables in the safe!!! Don't bring a laptop- you're on vacation and shouldn't care about anything else other than relaxing. Always have a few single dollars on you to tip-they are constantly waiting on and serving you! Be polite, say hello, please and thank you in Spanish. See the shows at night. Do the Soama Island excursion. Remember to haggle when shopping but be nice about it. That is their culture. Go to Nancy's on the beach, just left of the resort for shopping but be prepared for them to push. Don't be rude and work with them on prices. Get massages there, better price and best massage. They need the money the most! Remember how poor they are...it puts it all into perspective. Let go and relax!

Pretty Good all around.

This was a nice resort - not the best, but nice. We paid extra for the ride to and from the airport, but had to meet with the Orbitz rep, who was never where he said he'd be, to arrange the ride back. This of course comes with a hard-sell about buying the extras. The second you step off the resort property, you are accosted by locals trying to sell you stuff, and one night they actually let these sales people into the hotel - they actually physically grab you to try to sell you their goods. Breakfast buffet was great, the activities were mostly fun, and the room was lovely. Towel and mini-bar service was sporadic. We had a hot tub in the room, but the water was murky and greasy looking. Nice shops, but some of the food was terrible - DON'T order the hamburger. I don't know what it was. Staff was great, except one guy who hung around the sports bar and tried to sell tennis lessons. He wouldn't let up and kept changing the TV channel to a soap opera when several people were there to watch the NBA playoffs. We avoided that bar after that, which was a shame.

I'd go with someone other than Orbitz. This is the second time we've had trouble with their reps wasting our time and trying to sell us stuff.

Nice Getaway for Couples

Great location with beautiful beach, pools, & grounds. Excellent, friendly staff. Food and drinks were great. Room was moldy and musty smelling. Also, dress code for dinner was a little much for the hot weather.

Fantastic holidays

Just came back from incredible holidays in this hotel. Everything was just perfect: *) incredible beach *) wonderful pools *) nice food *) first-class service except: *) some staff yelling early in the morning next to the door *) music way too loud in the evening for their shows But I'd definitively come back :)
