Within the top 10% of Punta Cana hotels on TripAdvisor, the Excellence Punta Cana is an upscale adults-only resort designed to maximize the natural relaxation properties of warm sunshine, shady palm trees and turquoise waves lapping white sand.
Guests are welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine at check-in and led to a room with a rainwater shower head, complimentary Wi-Fi, and views of the ocean or the gorgeous grounds. A large pool, named one of the best in the Dominican Republic by Oyster.com, meanders between nine restaurants, 12 distinct bars -- including a beach bar and a swim-up bar -- a large casino and a massive, two-floor, indoor/outdoor spa.
Described as a "surfer's paradise" by Oyster.com, the beach at this hotel is perfect for utilizing the vast array of water sport vehicles available for guest use, or those looking for calmer waters can head to nearby Macao or Bavaro Beach. Guests are also welcome to a free half-hour horseback ride at HorsePlay Punta Cana stables, or they can hit a few golf balls at the Cana Bay Golf Club or the Faldo Legacy Course.
