We traveled with friends and stayed as excellence club guests. We had fun as we were with friends and the weather was great. Magna, The Kitchen Table, and Oregano were by far the best restaurants with the better food and the friendliest hostesses and wait staff. Our waiter at Chez Isabelle was rude, rolled his eyes and sighed while a member of our party was asking him about items on the menu. Waiter at The Sports Bar never brought different items that were asked for even though we were the only people in the bar. Witted at Agave never returned after taking our orders, we had to request help from other servers. Cielo was the only bar with good service, Kendry.

Hotel's Favourite
Well, where to start. Has been awhile since we have been on a vacation. A great one at that. The Covid thing has put a damper on travel. We booked thru AAA travel out of Fayetteville with Lauren. She was a great help in finding the right spot. We flew out of Charlotte on American Airlines. Getting thru airports are a mess. We had transport to the hotel by a driver that could have driven in nascar. He was a driver that knew his way around for sure. When we arrived we were greeted by the general manager with a very friendly smile and a glass of great champagne. To the check in desk with no problems. We had room 10106 ocean front with the greatest of views. Room was extremely clean. Full bar with large bottles of top shelve delights. Fridge was full of snacks, coke, diet coke, water and mixers. Air worked great. Had soaking tub present. Had a great rainfall shower..Plenty of towels to spare! Everything a person could want was present in the room with a king size bed. There were many well maintained pools with plenty of seating in and out of the sun. The beach was close by. Sand was brown in color and the ocean water was warm and the normal Atlantic ocean type of color.. Only bad part was all the seaweed ! Tons of it!-----Their beach front was very long for long strolls. There were numerous bars around and plenty of staff that would fill your needs for drinks. Are staff always were smiling and helpful with any questions or needs that you may have. There are ten restaurants on site with anything that your stomach could desire. Plates were full and they would give you more if you needed. Again let me tell you that the staff was the best i have ever encountered. They made sure you were taken care of from all aspects of your stay. I could keep on and on telling you how great this experience was, but the best would be for you to travel to this great spectacular resort. They do take excellent care of you. This was an unforgettable stay

Celebrated a 50th Birthday Bash with the ladies. Victor Antonio was amazing. He catered to my groups every need from drinks, food, towels, he was always around without being intrusive. Entertainment staff was incredible, special shout out to Yan Carlos. Marcos my favorite bartender always ready with a fresh cocktail. Rooms were always clean and bed was very comfortable. All the food was good, can not say one bad thing about it. We were a group of 6 for the first half of the week then became a group of 11, they do not take dinner reservations at the restaurants so most nights we did not eat until 9pm that was a little irritating. But we came up with a plan pretty quickly. Breakfast, lunch and then a mid afternoon snack on the beach or at the pool that they bring to you. Believe me you will never go hungry, you can always order room service as well, which we did and it was great. One suggestion: BRING BUG SPRAY THAT CONTAINS DEET.

Our stay was absolutely amazing. The staff was so welcoming and they were all such hard workers. The resort was clean at all times and the rooms were as well. Rain or shine they made each day an incredible one. We didn’t want to leave!!!

Once again, I begin any review with your past experiences clearly influence if the place being reviewed is a 1-5. With that being said, I have been to close to 7 all-inclusive resorts mostly in Mexico. I think the Secrets chain is better than this resort. Excellence PC's good characteristics are summed up in all the other reviews. I will merely speak to some that need improvement. Building: I was told this was one of the oldest resorts in the area. Excellence bought it from another chain called the Royalton and renovated it. It is still very well put together but does have an older theme to it where it pools do not connect in the right places and there should be a central pool bar as opposed to one on the side. Beach: I will not complain about the seaweed because it is not PC's issue. However, if they financed a tracker, they could clear the seaweed while grooming the beach. This suggestion would probably put some workers out of a job so I understand them not doing so. Also, this resort is on the Atlantic side of the island. Waves are a lot harsher and turned up. I am not sure if this ever settles down. However, the sand was the softest I have ever felt in my life! Go walk down the beach to the south and find some calmer areas. Alcohol: Not very high-end. Absolut, Tanqueray, (no tequila I recognized), Jack Daniels, Johnny Walker Black was about as high-end as it got. If that is fine by you, great. But the margaritas were ultra sweet and the mojitos were hit or miss. Stick to rum drinks and you should be ok. Food: The food here is fine. I would not recommend the Italian restaurant, Lobster House or Agave. Chez Isabelle and Spice were by far the great. Go to the Hibachi at Spice (reservations need to be done promptly at 3 pm) and then go another night to Spice for the regular menu WHICH IS BETTER! The breakfast has a lot of options but they lack in the requested category. For example, I ordered huevos ranchero (which is on the room service menu) and they said no. I guess round peg round hole from some of the workers. I was not impressed at their breakfast. Mimosa and Bloody mary could be better. Overall: Lots of minor complaints, I know; however, I would not come here again. Not because of Excellence, but because I would test another island in the Caribbean. It was a 5-hour flight to get there when we can get to Mexico in 2. I would try another Excellence again. Maybe a newer one that was not built around an old resort.
