Hi So, another of my reviews about travels in a wheelchair around this wonderful world of ours. A couple of years ago, my wife and I went to Excellence Punta Cana for our honeymoon. When we arrived at the hotel we were allocated a wheelchair accessible room that was so far off the charts as far as location, light and...

We celebrated our 40th here. They have a good anniversary package that includes a couples massage (scalp, neck, shoulders, arms, feet & lower legs), dinner on the beach, and champagne with a fruit basket in the room at arrival. We had a swim-up junior suite in the Excellence club section (building 10) and thought the room was very good and...

I enjoyed my holiday very much. The 8 restaurants offered a good variety and great service and very good food. Generally my first experience of an all-inclusive was wonderful. BUT, I had my camera stolen from my room (as well as my room-mate's camera case) and get this: $100.00 from my personally coded wall safe!! When I made a security...

After reading reviews of other all inclusives we decided on the Excellence because it had the fewest complaints. We are seasoned cruisers, and were expecting good service, but the customer service was beyond expectations. There was not a request they did not exceed. It was my husband's birthday, I mentioned it in passing and they decorated the room and delivered...

The Excellence Resort was a wonderful place for a vacation! It was so clean and well kept, the grounds were manicured beautifully and the hotel itself was so clean and beautifully decorated. The food was so good, a lot of choices of places to dine at night. The restaurant on the beach where we would go for our noon meal...

First of all I would like to thank all of the staff at Excellence for making our first trip to Punta Cana, DO, one of the best vacations we've been on yet. The food was good, the drinks were good, and SUPER WILLY was our favorite entertainment staff member. We stayed at the resort the the whole trip and were...

This was my 5th time returning to the Dominican Republic, and for the first time I can actually say I would return to the resort I stayed at. The Excellence in Punta Cana was just that, excellent. I won this trip through an incentive at work and went with a large group of co-workers (there was about 16 of us)....

After traveling to many islands in the Caribbean over the years, we found one resort that had everything that we wanted in a vacation resort. The resort is the Excellence Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We have just come back from our 5th year during February School vacation week and found that it has improved if that is possible....

My husband and I just returned from a six night stay at this resort and found it just average.

We had the swim-up Junior Suite which was a great set up but the room was dingy and very old. The...

This resort was wonderful. We did not upgrade to the Excellence club and don't think you need to spend the extra money. The beach and the staff make the Excellence worth the trip (and the hour long ride from the airport). We were welcomed with glasses of champagne and a friendly "welcome home." While the rooms/buildings could use a little...
