The Excellence Punta Cana Resort is formerly known as "Secrets Excellence Punta Cana". It's a 5 stars luxurious adults only resort which sets it quite apart from most of the hotels around.
Even when the sight of kids is considered pretty common in Punta Cana, some couples want time for themselves and this place is exactly what they need. This resort is not that big, as it only has 480 rooms; but don’t let that fool you, the area is surrounded by a huge amount of trees creating a very relaxing atmosphere.

Remember that this place is oriented for couples, so if you have an idea like having a big family vacation don’t think about this place. The range of activities here like spa with massages, fitness centers, the incredible food, and more are specially customized for the couples. The staff here works really hard to please all the guests and they are well trained to speak many languages at least for the most basic stuff. There is also the VIP section which you can upgrade, which offers several more benefits and luxuries.
Let’s begin with the
common equipment to all room types in the Excellence Punta Cana: 24
hour room service, coffee maker, iron with board, satellite
TV (with HBO, Cinemax, etc.). Also a minibar
that is restocked everyday with sodas, beer, and water, telephone,
internet, the usual air conditioner, a luxurious bed, jacuzzi for two
and bathrobes. Now you are starting to see that the accommodations in
the Excellence Punta Cana Resort are one of the
most luxurious of Punta Cana. Along with the junior suites the other
types are: Swim-out suites (which are in
the ground floor and provide
access from the room and the patio to the pool), Master suites
that offer pool view and 2 rooms that are separated and the most prized
Honeymoon suite with outdoor jacuzzi.
All the rooms are beautifully designed with marble, very fast and
efficient room service and the list of activities always provided the
next day. Sounds good isn't it? And please, don’t forget to lock all
your valuables in the safe as you know some employees might feel
tempted if they see nice stuff all over the place.
The Excellence Punta Cana Resort has quite an amazing and extensive beach. Unlike the beaches in most resorts this one won’t get packed very early in the morning so you and your special partner don’t have to get up early just to save a spot on the beach. The beach here has some small waves, nothing to big, and got areas perfect for snorkeling and swimming. Besides the snorkeling and swimming, the kayak races, and water polo are great choices to enjoy the beach.
pool has a fantastic outline and is extraordinarily huge in
size. The decorations in the pool include small bridges and swim-up
bars for refreshments that always come in handy. There is a
private pool which has a view of a breathtaking waterfall that makes it
perfect for maximum relaxing time.
One of the best features of the Excellence Punta Cana in the review is the awesome taste in their cuisine. The meals in this resort are great but not only because of the variety, the fact you can find 7 restaurants from all around the world is a nice plus. There is the Higuey buffet where they serve a fantastic breakfast; Italian, Mexican, sea food, French, Chinese, Japanese, and Mediterranean restaurants are also part of this amazing combination. They are all very good but I prefer Italian and seafood.
The Italian, the sea food one and the Mediterranean provide meals for lunch time and the rest for dinner.
restaurants here don’t require reservations and many are not that
strict in the dressing code which is great (considering that most
restaurants in Punta Cana resorts have a more strict dressing code and
are a pain to get the reservations). Even the most picky eaters will
enjoy the food here as they provide for almost every imaginable taste.
The fun in the Excellence Punta Cana Resort never ends, you can begin with some basic land sports like: bicycles, tennis, horseback riding, aerobics, volleyball, and more. The horseback riding can be done for 30 minutes without an extra cost, after that it will involve extra fees and remember: don’t wear shorts if you are going to ride on a horse (it can be a bit painful). I forgot to mention the dancing and Spanish lessons which is a way to learn something while having a vacation.
The resort also features a fitness center to exercise if you feel like it and a Punta Cana spa where they offer a huge amount of services to help you relax, like facial treatments and more. The water activities are always a nice choice, even when some people considering the nature of this resort decide for another type of activities.
The night shows
are one the best entertainments around (in that they got a magician, a
Michael Jackson show, etc). A piano player who is hilarious
and also enjoy to make the people sing is a big part of the events
going on in the night shows. The casino around is opened
from 7 pm to 3 am, it
provides a small club with a bar, black jack, roulette, slot machines
and more. I don’t recommend the people to play in this casinos as they
will likely lose all their cash. A spa or an excursion outside the area
would be a much better choice to invest your money, especially with
that special someone.
