Where are all those 5-star reviewers staying? My boyfriend and I just got back from a 7-day stay, 2/23-3/2/2013. This is an average resort, not a 5-star facility. If you've traveled widely and stayed in world-class hotels in other parts of the world, you'll be disappointed here. Plus side: The grounds and public areas are very pretty and clean, and...

This was our first visit to an Excellence Resort, but not our first visit to the Dominican Republic. I am on the verge of rating this resort excellent, but there were a couple of items, which I will explain in a bit, that prevent me from going that far. First of all, I must say that the value you get...

This was our first time at The Excellence. The ride from the airport was long, about 1 hour. We were greeted with a welcome drink and wet towel to freshen up. We were in building 4 on the 3rd floor. Vaulted ceiling on 3rd floor so felt spacious. Nice and secluded as well. Refrigerator is stocked daily. Mattresses and pillows...

We visited the Excellence Punta Cana with four other couples in mid January. Similar to the Excellence Playa Mujeres, the hotel was very clean and well maintained. Our rooms were nice sized and very quiet. The food was just ok which is consistent with the experience we've had a 6+ all inclusive resorts that we've visited. The beach was nice...

We just returned from a 5 night stay at this beautiful resort. And when I say beautiful...I mean beautiful. I cannot say anything negative about the grounds, rooms, pools, beach, entertainment, service or the staff. We had a dream vacation and it was fabulous!

We spend one week at The Excellence Punta Cana from 16th February 2013 and it was absolutely fantastic. The staff are the most helpful and friendly I have come across. We were met from our taxi with a glass of champagne and shown to our room which was beautiful and spotless; they even provided incense sticks and holder for us....
