Punta Cana vacations feature beautiful beaches, perfect for romantic getaways and destination weddings. Dan & Susan recently returned from their trip to Punta Cana, and they had lots to share with us!
The Excellence Punta Cana
Check out what they had to say about the Honeymoon Suite:
Good morning, Krista,
It was a great trip! Our private beach was excellent, a 10 +. The service on the beach was another 10 +. They actually served chilled champagne in a real glass, delivered hot/cold excellent food right to our beach chair; they make it easy to decide for a return trip. They also make it easy to put on extra pounds!
The beach was outstanding, you could walk forever, which we did every day for at least 2 hrs a day. There was always a breeze, thank God. You were right about the water being rough, there were red flags flying all the time but we are ok with that. We did see somebody surfing, great fun. What also made the beach a 20+ was that there were no other resorts within a 2 km walk of us, and we couldn’t even see another resort from ours. It was perfect!
The room we booked, the Junior swim-up ocean view, was very good, not much of an ocean view, but very nice. It had a musty smell, but I guess that’s the Caribbean because we experienced the same scent at a 5-star Jamaica all-inclusive last year. Next year we will bring our own candles and incense! It was the ride from hell to and from the airport, but that was the only real issue. I wish there was an alternate form of transportation to get to the resort, I would have taken it.
One day while looking up at our resort from the beach I noticed a roof top pergola in a pink building; after some nosing around, we were able to go and see this room–it was also in The Excellence Club–The Honeymoon Suite Roof Top Terrace Suite. Apparently it is relatively new and WOW! After viewing it we upgraded to this room immediately! Our roof top was totally private with our plunge pool under the pergola, maintenance free deck, white leather furniture, a large round outdoor bed with all the large cushions, a small table with two chairs, an outdoor shower. It was UNBELIEVABLE.
The main floor consisted of 2 bathrooms, 1 of which had 4 shower heads, living room with 42-inch plasma TV, white leather furniture, dining room table and another work table. It also had a large covered deck with another large daybed and cushions with another table and two chairs–everything overlooking the pool/ocean.. Amazing views. The master bedroom, off the living room, had a king-size bed, another 42-inch plasma, and behind the bed was a two-person sink and a large Jacuzzi tub. It was just beautiful.
Our maid was excellent and we let her know it. Our room service was the best I’ve ever had, regardless if it was another bottle of Grey Goose being delivered, one beer or suppe, the service was outstanding. So outstanding that we only made it for supper one time! It was so hard to leave this private getaway, and again with the food they delivered, which was excellent, why leave the room?! The one restaurant we did make it to, the Oriental restaurant was excellent.
There were issues with our room that I was not pleased with but they took care of these issues and also discounted this room by 50%. We were very pleased.
Everything was beautiful … outstanding … we are pretty sure we will be returning next year!
