Set on a white sand beach backed by lush palms, this tropical all-inclusive resort and spa makes for an idyllic escape for couples seeking seclusion. The resort has a quaint colonial style with a freeform pool snaking around the property. Spacious rooms have four poster beds and big bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs and separate showers; upgrade to the honeymoon suite for a terrace with another Jacuzzi and ocean views. The beach is pristine, though the water at this end of the island can be choppy. This all-inclusive doesn’t just include food and booze, but also a slew of activities ranging from nonmotorized water sports to mini golf and tennis.
In the Area
Travelers up for an adventure should explore some of the best beaches in the world on this island, namely Playa Cabo Engaño, Playa del Macao, and Playa El Cortecito. No need to rent a car; taxis are inexpensive and plentiful, and El Cortecito even has a water taxi.
How to Get There
My wife and I just got back from our second trip to Excellence Punta Cana and the only reason why our first trip was better was because we were married at the resort last year so that will be tough to beat. But trip number 2 was amazing. Great place…amazing amenities…incredible food…but the best part of Excellence Punta Cana is the staff… They make every day better than the previous one. Bottom line is an amazing experience...when you combine with the cost...which is almost half of what the same would have cost anywhere else...I can't see a reason to go anywhere else...See ya next October....
Our stay was incredible. It was our first time vacationing via all inclusive. The staff were lovely, fun and helpful. The aesthetic of the decor was just what I was looking for. The restaurants and food were great - a good assortment, staff always offering more, and food delivered hot and fresh. The only thing that didn't meet my expectations (and perhaps I should have expected this from an all inclusive, but it was my first time) was just how loud the music was everywhere - I felt like I couldn't escape it. I was looking forward to a vacation of peace and quiet and simply the sound of waves crashing on the beach. Our room was *right* outside the swim up bar which meant that loud, thumping music could be heard from our room from about 10 AM - 6 PM non-stop. The view was great from our room, however (we could see the ocean even though we reserved garden view) so I was hesitant to ask to switch rooms and risk getting a less scenic room. It wasn't that bad because we spent little time in our room during the day, but even from the peach or poolside there was always competing music from the bars, the pool, and from the lawn speakers. Other than that, our stay was amazing, and we would return (but I would just request in advance a room farther from the main pool area).
We spend 6 days in this resort and we felt like millionaires with all the attentions and services. Everything was inclusive with the exception of fine wines during dinners. Besides that we can have everything we want and more. "The Kitchen Table" was great for all breakfasts and every other restaurants were good as well. Don't forget to visit "The Grill" and "Chez Isabelle" our favorites.
