Excellente!!!!!!!

My husband and I travel frequently inside and outside the U.S. We had a wonderful vacation at Excellence. [...] The ride was 45 minutes give or take a few from the airport to the hotel. No problem there. I was interested in seeing a bit of the country since we were not doing any excursions. The people in the van were very friendly. We only made one other hotel stop on the way to Excellence. The driver was friendly and the drive was safe. He had a companion in the van that was helping and hoped to work for the van company eventually. The companion was very friendly, very nice, and told us a lot about himself and the country. A great start to our trip... The hotel was very nice. The rooms were very clean and nice. The pictures on the website do not do the resort justice. It is much prettier than the pictures depict. Very, very nice retaurants, extremely friendly, professional and respectful staff. The food is excellente! Beautiful, beautiful nights with the clear sky, full moon and many many beautiful coconut trees. The waves were rough so we never swam in the ocean. We stayed by the pool, but the resort's beach was clean and well-groomed. The staff is constantly cleaning and fixing things up. I did not see anything in disrepair or unattended to. The grounds are very well-kept. Enjoy. Tip well. They deserve it.

The floating mats are not supposed to be taken from the pool. They are to be shared, so if you go to lunch or take a nap please don't be a greedy and slide it under your chair like you own it. It just reflects badly on you...

The best vacation I have been on....

The minute we arrive we received first class service from the friendly and welcoming staff. The resort itself is amazing, beautiful, spotless, and very large. Lots and lots of tropical areas with all kinds of birds and flowers, quite impressive. The beach was gorgeous, very private to the resort go'ers only. *I have to mention the waves. I have been to the DR several times and have not seen waves like this. If you like body boarding or just waves in general, this is definitely the spot to hit. Not too rough, but lots and lots of fun. The food was wonderful, breakfast and lunch buffets very good quality. Dinner was above average, Agave, the Mexican place being the best of the bunch. Plenty of activities to keep you busy, but no one pressures you to do them if you would just like to relax. Plenty of bars EVERYWHERE, drinks are great, and all staff are friendly as can be. All around excellente, can't say enough about it.

We chose to do the excellence club...although there are many perks offered. I'm not certain it is worth the amount they charge you. It is nice to get the VIP service...but to be honest, it seeemed like whether you had paid for the Excellence club or not, the service was stellar across the board...so perhaps not the best idea if you are on the fence.

Second visit

My husband and I have been to this resort twice - in 2009 & 2012. Both times were wonderful. The location and ambiance are unbeatable!! The rooms are decent. We usually stay 5 star and the rooms are not 5 star, but they are good enough for the value of the all-inclusive price. They are clean, but the quality of products (the bed) are okay. The staff is amazing!! They make the vacation amazing!! The staff is incredibly kind and accomodating. It was refreshing to see some of the same staff members (Mario at the bar) that we met 3 years ago. The food is wonderful at the Lobster House, the Mexican and French restaurants. We also enjoyed the lunch buffet best. The ground floor rooms with the hammocks are great- especially if you have an ocean view!! The activities are endless and the staff make everything even better!!! We will definitely be going back!

Paradise

From the welcome champagne to the exquisite food and service our experience was fantastic. A variety of activities, shows and sports...a great activities team and if you want just the ocean and the sounds of the waves you can travel down the miles of beaches.

A Great Place To Unwind

Excellence is appropriately named. The staff is friendly and competent. The accommodations and amenities are luxuriuos and well maintained. The dining options are more than sufficient but could use a touch of local influence. The beach activities need to be increased in the number of sailboards, catamarans and staff available to assist vacationers. All in all, an Excellent value for the dollar. My wife and I had a great time! Recommendation: Specify with the front desk what time you would like your daily maid service.

Hobie Cat Sailing was great, but they do not train you. You must be a seasoned sailor to enjoy it - they may upgrade them soon, but for now it's only a 14ft. Ask for [...], he's the best staffer at the Dive Shop Area. Also, since the resort is North of Barvaro Beach, it's a long ride up - but worth it!!!

Definitely Excellente!

The hotel is fabulous! You can't find a bad employee if you try. The rooms were very nice and always clean, the pool and grounds were immaculate, and the food was amazing, with 8 fabulous restaurants to choose from, and reservations never required, so that you have no reason to plan ahead. You can just do whatever you want on your own schedule. The beach was a little rough, but if you like the waves (like us) you'll have a blast!
