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.

How to Get There
The place was great. Employees were very friendly, were always making sure we were okay and if everything was good with us. The food was good. The shows were really good very entertaining. The room was always clean.
Very nice place with almost everything perfect! Great service, nice food, great facilities, very nice staff. One definite negative thing is the noise from other guests (radios at the pool/beach, or loud annoying behavior at the pool/beach), this should not be allowed and staff should intervene (I never saw them do so).
However, this was limited to short (but vèry annoying) periods. For the rest we had a perfect holiday!
Excellence Resort Punta Cana was an amazing resort! This place truly puts you in a state of relaxation from when you step foot on the resort. The restaurants were great and had a good variety, the bars had a lot of variety and the bartenders were friendly and awesome. The pool activities were fun and the nightly entertainment is highly recommended! My wife and I had one problem with our room but the staff to care of it immediately and there were no other issues. Staff was amazing can't say enough about how great they treated their guests.
We just returned from an amazing week at EPC. It was our 7th trip there. We almost didn’t go because of all the negative press and I’m soo glad we went. Everything was AMAZING. The staff is superb and they are honestly the reason we keep returning. The service is unparalleled. They even called multiple times in the week just to make sure we had everything we needed and all was going well. Sometimes there is seaweed but they work hard, all day to remove it. The food was great, pools and beach terrific and the employees went above and beyond!
We often ate at Las Olas on the beach for lunch. Mario cooked everything great and Joel and Jeffery gave excellent service. We love Robert and actually have pictures with him dating back to 2012. We are friends on Facebook with some of the staff.
The beach service was terrific!! We rented a cabana bed each day ($60 per day without massage or $90 with). Juan Carlos, Edwin and Diaz took care of us each day on the beach and could not have been more attentive! The housekeeping was good and accommodating when I wanted our room cleaned at a specific time. We stayed in the excellence club ocean front honeymoon 2 story rooftop suite. We love it because it has an outdoor shower! We were in building 2 which was great. If you can afford it, this room category is the best we have ever stayed in. The only complaint we had was our mattress was very hard and uncomfortable. I mentioned this when we checked out and apparently they would have changed out our mattress if I had told them during our stay. WOW!! We travel a lot and are pretty picky travelers. Yet we return here every year because of all I hv mentioned.
We stayed with a group of friends this past week and it was amazing. There was some anxiety with all of the recent news but speaking from experience now having traveled here it is unfounded. The staff is what makes this place so great. Hector,Jose (yellowboy) , shakey shakey, nicky Minaj ,Coca Cola, Evan, dj darinel, and all of the entertainment staff made each day so fun. We all had such a great time at this beautiful resort and highly recommend.
