We stayed at Excellence Punta Cana from July 24th to Aug 1st. Thanks to US Airways' mechanical issues on 2 different planes we didn't arrive until 9pm. (We were not greeted with champagne and a warm towel like other reviews posted) After reading a lot of reviews I was on the fence about spending another $600 to join the Excellence...

Just returned from our anniversary vacation. It is true the trip to and from the airport is terrible - roads are bad and it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get there. We arrived to a glass of champagne and a cold towel - much needed! We had to change our room as our view was the inside...

Adult only so no little kids around or stressed out Mom’s - as we have mostly passed that stage. The service was the best...

We stayed at the Excellence for 4 wonderful nights!!! The rooms are large, very clean and always stocked with drinks, snacks and, of course, alcohol!! The grounds are pretty, with a botanical garden and pond in the middle!! There are some small shops, in case you forget anything, an internet cafe, a great health club and lots of other sports...

We were there July 24th- Aug 2nd. Everything was wonderful. The food, the room, the staff, the weather. We couldn't have asked for a better honeymoon/1 yr anniversary. From the second that we arrived, we were treated like old friends. We chose to pay the extra for the Excellence Club. There are many benefits to this including a private lounge...
