Excellence Punta Cana Up for Education

Literacy is for everyone. We feel very proud to share with you the great results of Excellence Punta Cana participation on this year’s “Quisqueya Learns with You”. Here are the graduates:


Quisqueya Learns with You is a literacy national plan in which our most underprivileged colleagues have had the opportunity to learn how to read and write.

One of our colleagues from laundry department who graduated from this program offered some words at the Graduation Ceremony.


Thanks to the implementation of  this program even more fellow workers have joined and are now learning to read and to write. In addition to literacy, it creates opportunities to those interested to continue and complete their Basic Education. On the other hand, trains new scholars in order to improve their quality of life and promotes their association or improving their skills to achieve a better job.

We are one of four Hotels in Bavaro, Dominican Republic recognized by the Hotel Association and the Ministry of Education.


Thanks again to all those involved on this program, we share the joy of progress with you.

Don’t forget to keep the conversation on Facebook.

Kids rejoice in our very own posada

A smile from a child is packaged sunshine and rainbows… unknown

Following our previous blog post Sharing the Christmas Spirit, it was possible to do the Toy Donation at a childen’s home in Cancun.

We truly appreciate the contributions from our dear guests of the Excellence Riviera Cancun, Excellence Playa Mujeres, The Beloved Hotel, and the Excellence Group sales team donations. With your help it was possible to take a little bit of the Christmas spirit to those who received it with a big smile.

??????????????????????????????? ???????????????????????????????




The most emotive part of the fiesta was when the children performed a Play which talked about hope, sharing and compassion. After the play, the children closed with a flourish by singing Christmas carols. It was a very happy moment! 


Seeing their smiling faces while the gift giving, was very exciting too. Sometimes we think we have all for granted but these experiences help us to appreciate what we have even more.

Once again, thanks to all the guests who participated, we wish you all a year full of happiness!
