Second time here, first since the recent renovations were done. Quick run down on them. New Sports bar and coffee shop added--Excellence club moved from one side of the resort to the other, taking away the infinity pool from being able to be used by everyone to Excellence club members only. A Boardwalk added the entire length of the beach, plenty of sun beds added along it and the beach itself, a couple decks with large seating areas added as well along the beach. Renovations to the rooms and restaurants were very modern, think Ikea meets the Caribbean, if that's what your into you will love the new look, if your looking for old world charm and the feel of being in the Caribbean, you will be disappointed with the renovations. The staff as good as ever, can not say enough about them all. I am truly concerned about the longevity of the renovation, plastic wood panels everywhere, 6 weeks old and already showing chips and hunks taken out of them, the boardwalk was made of pressure treated wood instead of composite like the old walk ways, with salt and water they will be sliver magnets in no time, we even saw a few tables in the buffet that already had huge gashes in them. The counter tops in the rooms were covered with some type of coating that already had large scratches in it. Simply put, sadly they used extremely low quality finishes everywhere. The restaurant renovations changed from what was very nice themed rooms to what is now bare walls an no ambience at all in most of them. If you sat in most of them, until your food came--you didn't know what type of restaurant you were in. First timers to this resort will probably not notice it too much, but any returning person will. Over all, it seems they put a lot of money into this resort, and changed it from quaint and fun to sterile and boring. Such a shame when that was already the look at the Excellence El Carmen, it would have been nice to have both looks in Punto Cana. We travelled with another couple, and all 4 of us agree, this was not a renovation for the better, especially when, what they had before was already Excellente',

We came to Excellence Punta Cana for the fifth time. This was the first time we’ve been back since they did the renovations. Very pleased with the changes. The rooms are modernized and continue to be very nice. The restaurants were rearranged a bit and some changes, but continue to be excellent. The service, one of the key features of this place, continues to be very friendly and accommodating. I must give a special shout out to Jose Antonio. He has been there for as long as we’ve been going (over 6 years). He mans the omelet station at breakfast. Rarely have I seen someone who seems to enjoy his job as much as Jose does. He not only accommodates any request you have, he does so with the most upbeat and positive attitude. He remembers me from one time to the next and remembers what my usual order is. He always has a cheerful demeanor and makes starting the day with him at Excellence a delight. He is one of the reasons I love coming back here year after year. There are so many others who also make the vacation special, from waiters, to bar tenders, to front desk personnel, but Jose stands out for me.

Excellence by name but excellent it is not ! Sadly Very disappointed with our stay.we go on 5/6 holidays a year a fraction of the price we paid for here and have never felt the need to complain as we did here ! This hotel has numerous issues that need to be addressed immediately if they want people to return. We had an upgrade to excellent club and expected all the benefits that went with this , alas it was an absolute farce, upon arrival no express check in , we were took to the wrong side of the building , not excellence club side, no champagne, flowers, fruit,beach bag , no bvgaria toiletries as promised. We were too tired to complain so waited till morning to address these issues, basically we complained and told to wait till 3 in the afternoon and they would move us, all a little stressful ... Got key at 3 to new room, got in lift with another couple who were also having the same problems as us, omg.... the lift broke down with us in it, the humidity and heat in there was horrendous , I started panicking and crying , rang the alarm for a good 10 /15minutes with no response , my partner managed to force the 1st set of doors open which let a little air in then forced the main door open , , we managed to climb down to find a room maid just laughing at us, she had obviously ignored the alarm ,we asked why she had not responded but just smiled, we could have been stuck there hours with no help , it was terrifying, and I will never go in a lift again. We went to notify concierge who did not even apologise but agreed to give us a ground floor room as I refused to use the lift again. 3rooms within 2days ..not my idea of a relaxing holiday, unacceptable ! What a stressful 2 days not my idea of an expensive luxury holiday I expected , to be fair we were offered a free massage the next day for our trouble and accepted , To be quite honest we could have complained about the food ,service etc every day but chose to make the most of a bad situation without stressing out , The food and service at the grill was appalling, after 1 1/2 hours of waiting for food it was cold so we walked out , found this an issue in nearly every restraunt , food undercooked or nearly raw with blood streaming out , ended up using room service meals a lot , queing at meal times not good , once again we were told that they were having lots of complaints on this and they were in talks with the chefs because of complaints , in the bars jack Daniels, ran out , no baileys, ran out ,,, not good enough for 5star hotel !,, no beach towels 1 morning , they said they weren't ready till lunch time ,,, again unacceptable , This hotel really need to address these issues As we were not the only ones who were complaining ,,, hate complaining and don't expect to have to complain. . Disappointing time in a beautiful hotel with lovely staff what a shame

The property itself is lovely and pretty well maintained. Ocean view club Excellence room was nice but serious problem with A/C. Others had the same issue. Of the 6 nights we were there, elevator didn't work 1/2 the time. Staff very friendly. Ocean very rough (pe6hraps time of year) so no water sports equipment let out. Most disappointing was the food. Not bad, but just adequate and should have been much better for the property and the price. Avoid the Grill with the thinnest NY strip you have ever seen -1/4 inch thick, no exaggeration. Overall we had a good time but will not return

My wife and I, along with two other couples, vacation at an all inclusive resort every January for the past 5 years. We selected the Excellence this year as it was our 30th anniversary and wanted something a little nicer than what we usually stay at. When all was said and done all 3 couples agreed that for the additional money the Excellence did not offer us anything the other resorts we've stayed at did for less money. So if I'm being honest it was nice but we all expected nicer. Staff is friendly and willing to help. Food was good but again on the disappointing side. Our first night we ate at the steak house. After being seated, a waiter (Miguel) took our order. We never saw him again! One hour after being seated and ordering we had no drinks, appetizers, salad, NOTHING. We eventually had to grab another waiter and explain what had happened to us and a couple sitting next to us. No excuse for this to happen. The grounds are beautiful and the beach large however water was rough the whole week. You could wade only as the waves were constant and the undertow strong. So if your looking for a nice place to vacation and have never been to an all inclusive the Excellence is a nice place to go but from my past experiences it was not worth the addition cost.
