My husband and I arrived to the excellence on 8/30 and stayed until 9/7. I can not say enough wonderful things about the resort and everyone that works here. Apon arrival we were immediately upgraded to an excellence walk out ocean front suite with out even asking. Our travel agent made the hotel aware we were celebrating our 2nd wedding...

I have been cruising extensively and I had forgotten how nice a land resort can be. The Excellence was nothing short of excellent! I really relaxed and enjoyed the uninterrupted time with my husband. I didn't have to lift a finger for drinks or even food. I was lounging on my sun bed when an attendant came by with personal...

This was my first ever all-inclusive trip and the most amazing resort I've ever been to. I can tell you right now - all inclusive is the way to go. My 10-day trip with my boyfriend was absolutely perfect and we will be going back as soon as possible. Everything was in pristine condition - it wasn't just the average...

The rooms were always clean and everyone was very polite. The pools and beaches are beautiful. Some of the shows were entertaining and others were just okay. The spa experience was wonderful. Would I go back again? Probably not. The guys that walk around trying to sell the excursion trips are overbearing and pushy, annoying at best. The food was...

When friends of ours told us that the Excellence Resort is a "cut above" other brands we had visited, we were dubious. How could it be? Well, it was! In spades! We have been to all-inclusives in Jamaica, Cancun, Riviera Maya, Cozumel and Puerto Vallarta, so we have experienced a variety of different resorts. We agree now that Excellence Resort...

We could have not been more pleased with the attentiveness, warm and smiling faces, and service of the staff at the Excellence Punta Cana. We did not even have the chance to want for anything, as our each and every desire was taken care of by this excellent staff. Carlos at Agave/Toscana was by far a standout employee, making our...

Four moms on vacation seeking amazing beaches, great pools, excellent service, a nice gym, and lavish spa.... All at the Excellence! The service was truly great - we wanted for nothing! The rooms were comfy, well appointed and clean. The only mediocre thing..... The food, totally ok, but certainly nothing noteworthy ( but i also live in the NYC area)....

My sister and I went here for a wedding. It was beautiful. Right on the water. There were 8 restaurants and 12 bars. It was awesome. All the workers there were so helpful and friendly. The room was gorgeous. The drinks were amazing. The food wasn't always the most amazing. But it was still good. Overall it was wonderful.
