Excellence Punta Cana
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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!
2 week getaway and it was amazing. The only negative was the mosquitos but this could not be helped and the hotel do offer a free treatment to help relieve the itch. The service was amazing and the really do treat you like royalty. We done a few fantastic trips also. The entertainment staff are the best i have had. Ergie and JC are fantastic and Epifanny with her playful antics really do make your day. All the team are amazing and Definately make the holiday a fun experience. Food and drink was fab, room was lovely and we met some lovely people. Definitely recommend to anyone as long as you bring mosquito protection. We will definitely come back just to see the entertainment team.
With kids and other responsibilities, this was the first opportunity to take a vacation for just the wife and myself. Excellence is truly a beautiful property and the staff is what makes this resort shine, truly. From LG (pass the balloon and the beer) to Gisel and so many others. Just sitting and watching the attentiveness of the staff to grounds keepers is amazing. It is very common to hear the staff singing and humming as they work, beautiful staff is really an understatement. I researched as much as possible to narrow down the right adults only all inclusive and ended up with Excellence. Pro's: The staff and the property are both beautiful. The pool stretches from one end to the other always allowing for a different group of people to meet. The food in my opinion was very good from buffets to lobster to Asian and Mexican. The activities as well as the nightly entertainment was extremely fun (i,e, Circus, white party (dinner decorated all in white with a saxophone player), dinner on the beach and of course the Michael Jackson tribute show). I never got her name but there was a young lady who would sing in the evenings and wow she had such a wonderful voice. The beach was immaculate and we could always find a chair for the both of us.Con's Not excellence's fault but the ocean was red flagged every day (6 days). We did walk up to our knees and could feel the undertow (much stronger than OBX). Power went out a few times but a mud slide (her) and Presidente (me) solved any concern there... only out for a couple minutes at most and then quickly restored.The people attending came from all over, Scotland, England, US, Japan, Korea etc... truly diverse which made it fun. The wifi in room 1209 was sufficient for all of my needs (sms messaging and web searching). Power outlets were US capable, I brought a battery pack, charged it and then charged my devices from the pack. The wife brought plenty of bikinis ranging from regular beach wear to malibu strings, she wore them all and wasn't the only one. Yes I would recommend Excellence highly for any age group.
Overall the trip was amazing!1) AWESOME customer service...Ergie, Epifanny, Rosi, Will.I.Am, Edwin, Sandy...just to name a few, were top notch and so much fun! 2) The cleanest resort we have ever seen. The staff is on top of it.3) Customer service was wonderful...they would get you anything you needed.4) Beach was ok, nothing exciting. Ocean was too rough to get in5) Games at the pool were fun and hilarious! Staff did a great job with games!6) Rooms are huge and spacious (beds are HARD but totally doable for a week)7) Food was our only disappointment. Didn't seem fresh, more like pre-prepared. But we ate it anyway and never left hungry.8) You absolutely do not have to tip. But plan on taking about $100 worth of one dollar bills because you will want to tip these lovely people! Hope this review is helpful. Reading them before we left was very informative. Would recommend resort to others.
We stayed at the excellence in Punta Cana for our honeymoon! We couldn't of asked for a better time! The staff was helpful, great and very friendly! They had nightly shows that were great and entertaining! There are numerous restraunts to choose from but all the food is good and there is something for everyone. Our room was spacious and always clean! This place was amazing and I would recommend it to any of my friends!
Ergie, Luis, and William were excellente!!!!! Everything was perfect and so nice. We had the best honeymoon thanks to the wonderful staff! Burlesque show was amazing. Toscana and chez izabelle were our favorite restaurants. 😘 They have more activities around the resort than you can ever imagine and they get involved and make it a blast.
