Romance rules at this all-inclusive resort on a pristine white sand beach with eight restaurants and 10 bars

The Lowdown

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

Excellence Punta Cana Adults Only All Inclusive (OPEN Nov1)
Playas Uvero Alto - Punta Cana
Punta Cana, 23000 Dominican Republic



We stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana for my fiancé’s sister. This was my first time in the Caribbean and could not have had a better experience! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful! Special shout outs for the event coordinator Shakey Shakey for putting on great daily events such as bingo, mini golf, name that tune, and more! Another shout out to Roberto! Roberto took great care of us at the resort from getting us our daily drink order to finding us the best seat in any restaurant he worked in. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking to travel to the Dominican Republic!


We traveled here for my sisters wedding and it was amazing! They had so much to do including amazing events throughout the day. Shakey shakey was full of energy all day everyday And was so funny and sweet, we played bingo and mini golf with her, Roberto was also fantastic and super accommodating. Our favorite place to eat was the kitchen the breakfast was so good! We will travel back here in a heartbeat.

Turning 40 Friends Trip

We had a truly memorable group vacation at this beautiful resort. From the moment we arrived at the resort to our last day, we received amazing friendly service from all staff. The resort was absolutely immaculate from the rooms, to the pools and beautiful beach. The food was outstanding and the events, live shows and optional activities were varied and exciting. The staff were always there for whatever we needed, Jose our entertainment friend, Danny Boy our pool side friend, Bjorkey and Ranphi our restaurant friends and David our front desk friend made us smile everyday. Please give this resort a chance, despite the recent media, you will not regret it. I will be returning in the near future!
