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 Punta Cana

We have been to this resort 8 times since 2006 - the customer service and food are top shelf. We have been to other resorts on the years we didn't go to Excellence and none of them have measured up to Excellence. The employees treat you like you are family - each year they remember us when we come back & make us feel very special. When we arrive we are greeted by Abraham R. with a huge smile & a hug. We always looked forward to seeing Jady G., Gabriela S., Altagracia - better know as Gremi & Sonia F. (she always has to help me with the coffee machine each morning in the Excellence Club) & Ines. All the mentioned plus several others each year make it an excellent vacation. You will not be disappointed if you chose Excellence Punta Cuna for your vacation-once you go it will be the only place you will want to go.

Visit #9 and counting

We love this place. Our favorite part is the staff, and we are very glad that most of them are still there. We had a great time with Omar Torres as usual. Omar is so great. Omar is the best. Jonathan Jimenez is the reason that we came back to this resort in the first place, and he continues to make us feel like family.

Fantastic Resort - Cant wait to return

This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic however we have stayed all over the Caribbean. The rooms were large and very well maintained by the cleaning & mini bar staff. We had a room overlooking a beautiful garden however if you like nature these is a fantastic reserve at the front of the hotel with all sorts of birds and animals from Flaminges to Macaws, Egrits, Cranes, Turtles, Iguanas etc. all easily accessed by a nice walkway. You wont tire of the restaurants as there are 9 A La Carte al of a high standard. A big shout out to Joel in the French restaurant, you were a delight to meet also Adan in the Lobster restaurant who was such a cheerful chappie who worked so hard all the time. The many bars were all great, especially the Martini Bar where we enjoyed the local drink Mamawhama, followed by a bit of a hangover the next day.Evening entertainment was good with a different show each night, there was also live music to enjoy each night. The pool area was amazing with very attentive staff, we absolutly Danny who looked after us everyday.........................We miss you as much as your superb cocktails. I had a problem with my foot on our second day and approached one of the concierge asking to see a doctor. Within 5 minutes I was in the doctors in hotel surgery being attended to...............Hows that for service!!!This hotel is now currently under renovation which will make it even more special. I understand the Theatre area (which could get very hot) is being enclosed and made fully air conditioned. All in all a grat hotel, with great service and staff. We would definitely return. ME GUSTA MUCHO - TODO BIEN xxxxxxxx

From the moment you step into Excellence Punta Cana, you are surrounded by luxury, a wonderful staff, and beautiful surroundings one might think could only occur in a dream.Our first experience at this adult’s only resort was for our honeymoon in June 2005. This most recent trip was our 10th time visiting this resort. We cannot imagine any other establishment being more fun, romantic, and relaxing with a staff more accommodating than the one at Excellence. The service, food, and atmosphere exuded excellence.Excellence Punta Cana offers a variety of activities if you love a vigorous vacation. Every room is provided with a schedule of the next day’s events and special occurrences that will take place throughout the resort and on the beach. There are nightly shows that are very entertaining, dance lessons, daily activities and games, as well as a discotheque for some late night dancing. On the other hand, if a relaxing retreat is what you are searching for, look no further. The pools are lined with cabanas, beds, and loungers, as well as the white sandy beach. The food at all meals is fantastic; dinners are especially romantic – candles, rose petals, and extensive menus at the many restaurants at this resort (it's tough to pick a favorite, but we LOVE Lobster House, Spice, Chez Isabelle, and Agave). Top the night off with a walk on the beach under the stars, or perhaps a soak in your private Jacuzzi tub with champagne. The resort is great for couples or any adults needing a peaceful retreat.The entire staff at the resort meets every possible need and desire at Excellence Punta Cana. Yeifrid and Gabriella were exceptionally caring at the front desk. The entertainment staff provided enjoyable activities throughout the resort and was involved in sports, games, and dancing (Julio Caesar, Luz, Solivar, Epifany, Yennette, Jonathan, and Junior to name a few). Every server (Sandy, Radhames, Jesus, Andres, etc), bartender, maintenance worker, grounds crew, housekeeper, concierge, and worker present a wonderful, luxurious experience for travelers to Excellence Punta Cana and offer vacationers a cheerful “hola” in passing. Special shout out to Abraham at the front who remembers us from year to year!The entire experience and Excellence Punta Cana was nothing short of excellent. When telling our friends and family about the astonishing week we spent at the resort, we find ourselves running out of adjectives to describe the fantastic time that was had on our vacation. We felt like rock stars and we were treated like rock stars! We will most definitely return for future vacations for our anniversary. The resort was/is in the process of a needed update, so half of the resort was closed, but they are looking forward to a newer, modern, look to the resort. I hope that they still maintain the tropical feeling that makes it so special. There is absolutely no need to go anywhere else but this paradise in the Dominican Republic – Excellence Punta Cana.
