Our 20th Anniversary Paradise

First ever all inclusive experience and we enjoyed it. The choice of entertainment as well as dining experiences was unending. Friendly staff gave us a unique personal experience from the moment we left our room until we closed the club late every morning. We also meet some very nice couples and enjoyed the evening shows.

Ask Orbitz for airport transport voucher when booking this package so that you are not surprised by the $70 trip fee to and from the airport. Being in a foreign country, with a cell phone that suddenly picks up en espanol can be quite a challenge as you try to figure out if the $70 trip fee is legitimate.

Excellence Punta Cana

Everything about the Excellence is excellente, except for the food. However, as long as you know this going in and don't expect to much from it, the resort is well worth the money.

amazing service, beautiful beach

The hotel was very luxurious and very beautiful. Most of the resort (except for the rooms and a few of the restaurants) are open air. The main pool was HUGE and amazing. It has a swim up bar, and is just the right depth to stand in. It also has shallow sections you can lay in too. The staff was so helpful and was always ready to bring you whatever food or drinks you wanted. There are lots of shady cabanas all around the pool so that you can relax in the shade too. The beach was very clean and beautiful and the sand was pristine. The food selection was very good, and the quality of the food was okay. We got sick (not sure if it was the food or swallowed ocean water) and the medic was able to take care of us, and the concierge checked up on us and made sure we had everything we needed. The main drawback was being an hour from the airport. If you take a taxi like we did it is $70 USD one way. Overall I recommend this resort, especially if you like not having crying whiny children around =)

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

The hotel has some shops to buy souveniers and other things you might need, but it is pricey. If you walk just to the edge of the hotel's property along the beach there are several other shops that sell the same stuff for much less.

Excellence was Excellent!!

I arrived with my new wife on our honeymoon to Excellence and was greeted immediately with champagne and friendly staff. Our first impression was the main lobby which was amazing to look at and was much larger then I expected. We were then escorted to our walk out pool room which was great. The king size bed was comfortable and the in-room jacuzzi was a nice touch. Out back, we had our own porch, hammock and were within walking distance to the pool. Along with the pool being there, we were lucky enough to be right next to the pool bar which we swam up to to get any drinks we wanted. Overall, the resort was in tip top shape. There were a few minor things that needed touch up but to be honest, that would be me just nitpicking an amazing place. Onto the food. The resort has about 7 or 8 five star restaurants and they definitely live up to the five stars. Each restaurant has its own unique flavor such as Italian, French Style, Japanese, Mexican, Mediterranean, Steak House, Lobster House and a couple others. Along with the restaurants, almost every night there was an outdoor buffet of cuisines which included a night with traditional Dominican food which was amazing. The lunch and breakfast buffets were also top notch with sooo many things to chose from you could never get bored. Along with the food, there were constant activities all day long and each day, a daily schedule was left in the room with the next days activities. Also shows at night kept you entertained with dances, music, circus acts and more. The staff too was top notch. Just about everyone was friendly 24-7 which was great. I know personally its not easy to be "on" every second and every day dealing with guests but they did a great job of giving out a positive vibe. All in all, I could go on for another 20 minutes of typing but I can sum it up with this. If you are looking for a five star resort, I can't imagine anything being better then this place. It truly was Excellente!!!

I'd recommend going to Toscana for lunch as they had just about everything there. The Grill is nice but we didn't go to Toscana until near the end of the trip and missed out on some great lunches.

Excellence Punta Cana

Had a wonderful time. Celebrating our 20th anniversary and was looking for a quiet, relaxing place with great service. The Excellence Punta Cana was a perfect choice. Beautiful beach and one of the largest pool areas I've ever seen. Never had an issue finding the "perfect" spot. It was the perfect destination for our vacation.

Visit "Nancy's" just west of the resort for gifts and souvenirs at lower prices and more "negotiation" possibilities.

Well worth the money we paid

I think that for the price we paid for this vacation we definitely got our monies worth. The staff at the hotel were wonderful, the pool and beach were great. Not a lot of inclusive amenities but we weren't looking to do too much. Just relaxed, ate and drank.

Great Service - Great Value

The hotel is top-notch and worth every penny! We wanted to relax and do nothing and it was the perfect place to do that. You can expect, comfy rooms, large pool area that never feels too crowded (and the hotel was very busy!), lots of palapas and chairs on the beach - we would show up at the beach around 9:30 - 10:30 am and there were always empty chairs. The staff is great, walk on the beach and they bring you drinks, pizza, great service. Great morning breakfast featuring smoothie bars, fresh fruit etc. You'll like most of the dinner options. For the beach area - the waves are not that bad as other reviews mention. My husband and I loved jumping the waves (small waves) nothing major. The ocean by the hotel is not tranquil as you imagine Turqs and Caicos, really not bad at all. The water is a great, refreshing, temp around 75-83 deg. Really, I recommend this hotel because of the superb service and wonderful ammenities beach. Worth it!

Most Amazing Honeymoon

Being that this was our honeymoon, location was not a really big issue we just wanted to rest and relax some where tropical. The resort was excellent, very clean, and the staff was very friendly. Our room was very large. The food was awesome with a wide selection of restaurants to choose from. The resort offered many activities such as horseback riding, spanish lessons, cooking lessons, dancing lessons, ect... The grounds around the resort including the beach were also well kept, the staff did a great job of keeping them clean. This was our first all-inclusive resort and we fear that we may have spoiled oursleves if we choose to try a different resort next time for it wont be as nice as this one. Over all we would highly recommend the resort to any one looking for some R and R.

Friendly staff, Great food!

This resort is about an hour from the Punata Cana airport but worth the bumpy drive. We went for our honeymoon and were worried that we wouldn't have anything to do but there is a night club, nightly shows, and lots of access for excursions that you can do during the day. Dress code is only needed for evening meals otherwise there is access to buffett style eating during the day with more variety than i could ever ask for. Service was wonderful- we actually debated staying longer because we felt so welcome and enjoyed it so much. Not only are you on the ocean but have great pools to choose from as well.
