My wife and I had a wonderful time at Excellence Punta Cana. The resort, staff, food, and room was top notch. Overall Trip: (Everything other than the hotel) The wait once you arrive at Punta Cana airport, we arrived the same time as 2 other large planes. We waited over an hour to get our tourism card and clear customs....

This is our second visit to the Excellence. We spent 5 nights there from April 8 - 13. The accommodations, grounds, weather and food all met and exceeded our expectations. We had a very relaxing vacation - just lounging around the pool and partaking in the multitude of beverages offered!! Definitely wear sunscreen and follow the instructions (wait 15 min...

Husband tripped/slipped in lobby area where too many glass tables were set up too close together and the glass table top broke and cut him severely. The doctor at the resort was great in fact he was one of only a couple resort employees/associates that were helpful or caring. He arranged for an ambulance and we were off to the...

Let me just start by saying that some people are always going to find something to complain about whether it be the food, customs, things being "outdated", etc. If you expect a steakhouse every night, then don't book an all-inclusive. If you don't want to pay $10 in custom's tax, don't leave the country. My husband and I (who are...

My husband and I could not have been more pleased with Excellence Punta Cana! Don't let the long ride from the Punta Cana airport discourage you... the resort is worth the trip. The included amentities are outstanding and never left us wanting. We took advantage of the shows at night, pool games during the day, and sand and beach volleyball....

We just returned from Punta Cana and can't wait until we go back again. The staff was incredibly gracious, attentive and helpful during our week at Excellence. The restaurants were all very good. We actually liked The Lobster House the most, which was surprising since we read reviews to the contrary. The bartenders, waiters and front desk staff were always...
