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.

Drinks were good...

If you go to this resort expecting 2 star quality you will be pleasantly surprised. If you expect a luxury resort with 4 or 5 star quality then you will be very disappointed. The food was not good. The rooms were not impressive (and we stayed in one of the largest and best locations on the resort), and the beach was average. We had bugs in our room, the shower hose broke, and there was the constant odor of sewage in the bathroom. The only positive thing I can be fair about is the quality of the drinks. For the money you can get better all around in every category staying at a different resort. My wife and i are very particular and like nice quality resorts. If you don't mind average quality then this resort will be for you. If you are expecting luxury I would pass on this resort.

Take enough cash with you before leaving. You will spend more if you need to take out Dominican Pesos and then change them back to US dollars.

Excellent Stay!

We stayed in a junior swim up suite and it was fantastic. At first we were on the opposite side of the resort than the other couple we went with, and the pool was beautiful with a waterfall. we requested to move closer to our friends, and the resort was extremely accommodating. we moved to a room that was 20 feet or so away from the swim up bar, which was fantastic. the beach was beautiful and we found out one night that the resort has employees with weapons patrolling the beach at night for all of the guests' safety. the restaurants were fantastic, although some (mexican, french) were without air conditioning. the sushi at the asian restaurant was the best i've had. we took an atv tour through a small town and countryside outside of the resort and had a really great time. the tour guide showed us around and told us about how real dominicans live. we also took a day trip to do the canopy adventure, which is a series of ziplines through the mountains about an hour away from the resort. it was absolutely beautiful and the staff were very friendly and safety-conscious. all of the resort staff were cheerful and extremely helpful, especially the entertainment staff who all made sure everyone was having a great time.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

just down the beach from the resort is a sort of camp set up called nancy's walmart. do not buy cigars from there. they will give you a good cigar to try, and then sell you a box filled with rolled banana leaves. the best place we found to buy cigars is the rancho de differente gift shop outside of the resort. we stopped there on the way back from the atv tour and picked up a box of 25 along with some mama juana for $60 cheaper than on the resort.

Amazing Resort, Best I've been to

We celebrated our fifth anniversary there, and it was a great week. We chose to stay on the resort the whole time, and we loved it. Some people we know went on the excursions (island trip, safari, etc) and said they were great too, but we just wanted to relax and enjoy the ocean and pool. The service was excellent, with every person eager to help. The only small downside was the older man working at the sports desk (where you get snorkel, etc.). He seemed really annoyed every time we came for a snorkel or boogie board, but other than that one person, everyone on staff were great. The grounds are beautiful, and the rooms are very nice. I've got only good things to say about the entire trip.
