Our Opinion

The Excellence Punta Cana is an adequate resort for couples looking to relax and get away in Punta Cana. Great rooms and accommodations. The rooms are cleaned and stocked daily. It can be guaranteed that goodies (chocolate, soft drinks and beer) will always be stocked in the mini-bar. The resort also makes good use of their 24-hour room service, which is always prompt. Pleasant and helpful staff, especially those near the pools, bars and beaches. Good layout of the resort. There are plenty of pools within reach, so you'll never find a shortage of loungers anywhere. The beach is a good place to lounge as well. However, for those wanting to wade along the shores, be advised that the resort often discourages this specifically when waves and currents are strong. There are endless options for both buffet and a la carte restaurants. Make sure to check out the Grill and Spice a la carte restaurants!

Raising All-Inclusive to a new level of luxury, this romantic adults-only getaway includes such deluxe extras such as Jacuzzi-for-2 in every room, four-poster beds, 24 hour room service and candlelit gourmet dining with white-glove service. Truly pamper yourself by sampling the wide range of facilities available, including full-service Spa, swimming pools, cozy tea & coffee corner, all accommodated by top-class friendly service! Set on a gorgeous 500-metre stretch of sparkling beach, the astounding Secrets Excellence Punta Cana will fulfill all your desires, 

Location: Beachfront, 45 minutes to Bavaro, 60 minutes from the airport.

Excellence is excellent!

THis was our second time at this resort. Our frist trip was the vacation of a lifetime, so hard to beat. The property has a lot to offer - pool, beach, food, evening entertainment. Food was terrific, even the buffet. We had probably the best massage of our lives - 100 minutes on the beach! A few of the staff went ABOVE and BEYOND to make our stay enjoyable. Omar at the Martini Bar and Allegrio made our evening outings extra special. Simply outstanding service. While in our Club Level beach bed Hector made sure we had cold beverages in our hands. The resort is slated to close for renovations, which are needed. For a 5 star you can see some modernization is required. All in all we'd go back here, or to any other Excellence Resort (hint: open up in Jamaica!)

My husband and I were at Excellence Punta Cana from June 12th through the 19th for our Honeymoon. Neither of us had ever done an all inclusive thing before, so we were nervous. But EVERYONE at Excellence was absolutely amazing. Our whole experience from the shuttle service from the airport to the guy that stocked our mini bar, was awesome. Other than the language barrier at times, we felt right at home. The phone in our room didn't work, which was slightly inconvenient, but we were still able to order room service through the Excellence Club. By the way, highly recommend doing the Excellence Club! Definitely worth it. As for the waiters, Adan Martinez and Emmanuel at the Lobster House were super awesome. One morning Adan asked if we liked the Dominican Coffee, and then preceded to get us a large package of coffee to take back home. Then there's Junior A at Tuscan. He went waaaaay above and beyond to make sure my husband and I's romantic dinner was absolutely perfect. All in all, this resort was perfect and we had an amazing honeymoon. We will definitely use Excellence resorts again

Best of the best in Punta Cana. Stayed at the Now Larimar and Excellence surpasses them with service, staff, and resort. No complaints. Staff over at the Now were rude, demanding tips and no problem making advances at woman. Excellence does not have that problem.

  • Teresa C :

After braving the harsh winter days of NYC, my husband and I decided to book a romantic vacation to the Dominican Republic. Thank God we did. DR was a little slice of paradise. The weather was amazing, and the beaches magical. The Excellence Punta Cana Resort was simply put, EXCELLENT. However, the highlight of the trip was the outstanding customer service provided by Joel Villanueva. Joel was a breath of fresh air. He made my husband and I feel like royalty. Joel was friendly, attentive and overall a great person to be around. Hands down Joel's customer service is top notch. Thank you Joel for making our trip to DR one we will never forget.

Best Birthday Ever!

As an early birthday gift to ourselves, my friends and I decided to go on a trip to Punta Cana. After looking around and checking review after review we settled on Excellence. When we got there we were blown away by the amazing views and the resort itself. The staff was great, especially Joel Villanueva. He was so friendly, a great listener, and knew everything from where to eat, sites to visit, and anything in between. A special thanks to Villanueva and the rest of the staff for making this birthday one to never forget. It was the most relaxing and visually stunning. Thank you so much for making this trip the best one yet, hope to be back soon!
