My husband and I stayed at the Excellence Resort in Punta Cana in November of 2013 and experienced the best vacation of our lives! Even though we traveled in the rainy season, most days were beautiful and sunny. Only had a couple of days of rain, but with the warm weather it didn't matter! We would only get out of the pool if there was thunder. :D The resort is beautiful, clean, and inviting. The rooms are very comfortable and include a huge jet tub, a flat screen TV, AC, a minibar with full bottles of wine, rum, beer, and other varieties of alcoholic beverages all included with your stay. The restaurants are wonderful! I tried to go to every single one of them, but couldn't manage it because there are so many! The places I tried were amazing. I was there as a guest Zumba instructor and had the additional benefit of teaching Zumba and AquaZumba classes 6 days that week. They have a great gym with an aerobics/group class room for those inclined to exercise during their vacation. The entertainment staff is simply wonderful, especially Kassandra! Every evening there was a special event at the theater and I made sure I didn't miss any of them. My favorites were the Michael Jackson Tribute, Circus night, and the Taino show. My husband and I had the most unforgettable vacation thanks to all the efforts of the resort staff to make us feel like royalty! I can't wait to come back! If you decide to visit, look for Amilton at the Lobster House. You will get the best service with a sweet smile!
