All the staff we encountered were most helpful and accomodating. The bartenders at the beach bar especially Omar kept the drinks fresh and also joked around with us. This was our 2nd trip (April) there this year and alot of the resort people remembered us. The hostesses at Toscana restaurant were equally friendly. Every thing is kept clean even the...

We just returned from Excellence last night. It was our first trip ever to the Carribean and we picked our resort very carefully as we are somewhat picky about accomodations and food. We were not disappointed at all with this resort. My husband who hates travelling is already talking about going back. We had a swim-up room with a hammock....

We stayed at the Excellence Resort from November 23 - 30, 2012. We were there with as a group of couples. The resort is located almost an hour away from the airport so prepare for a bit of journey there but it is well worth it once you arrive. You also get to see the countryside so the ride is...

We have been to the Excellence many times and love it here. Moya is one of our favorite bartenders in addition to Jose and Victor. They are all very personable, make great drinks, speak very good English and remember what we like to drink. Upon arriving the other day, we talked to Jose and Victor but couldn't find Moya. We...

Concerns: I recently returned from my 2nd trip to Punta Cana, DR. My original trip was booked through CC.com and based on that prior experience, I was pretty excited and confident that this return trip would be just as enjoyable. I stayed at La Meila for my first trip, and was more than satisified with the service, food, landscape, cleaninless,...

My wife and I went here for our honeymoon in September. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would gladly go back. We were part of the excellence club program and we would recommend this to others.

This was my second trip to Punta Cana and also the second trip to a all inclusive. I, again, was not disappointed. We stayed at Excellence for 5 nights. The property was very well maintained. The swimming pools are second to none. There is one pool that goes almost the whole length of the property. The staff was very friendly...

We were pampered for 6 excellent days! The staff was so welcoming and friendly . The meals were great....many choices to choose from. My only complaint would be the outside vendors that they allow to sell their wares.The vendors were somewhat pushy and slightly rude when told we we weren't interested. We live in FL and do not need any...

We seldom travel all inclusive's......so this trip was different in that respect. It is obvious trying to maintain a luxury.....5 star level service profile in a bus loaded resort is a challange at best and often unforgiving at worst. The cost can seem prohibitive for many and therefore exasberbating the Hotels attempt at pleasing so many varied expectations. But on...
