  17. Angela deMaio says:

    Hello I am a travel agent and was very disappointed that my agent rate was just as much as the clients that I booked
    I have traveled to many secrets properties and was always given a upgrade without paying for it with meeting with sales manager and doing a site inspection.
    not the case here they flat out tell you will pat for any upgrade and we do not do site inspections?
    would love to be able to sell this property as I do others.
    any help-advice will be welcomed

    • Hi Angela! Thank you for bringing this discontent to our attention. To proper follow up, please contact our Sales department at: aruiz@grupoexcellence.com, our colleagues will be happy to assist. We truly hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and reinstate your confidence in our services. Receive our warmest regards from the Caribbean! 😀

    • Tom says:

      Angela – I was looking up your travel agent info…and there doesn’t seem to be anything available throughout the internet that shows you are a travel agent – no company name, no travel agency, nothing. Yet, you seem to like to publicly note on Facebook & Tripadvisor reports you are a travel agent, and that you seek upgrades in exchange for selling the property. Do you have a website or other information for people to contact you?

      • Angela says:

        I work for global travel international as a outside agent and I am just getting started as a outside agent
        Thanks for your concern Tom but as of right now serving family and friends
        Any advice would be greatly appreciated

  18. Melanie says:

    Hello, we were looking on Google Earth and the resort looks to be nearly complete with pools visible, yet it was just started last month. We are confused about the progression. We are looking to book in late October 2016. Please advise as to the current progress. Thank you.

    • Hi Melanie! Thanks so much for your interest. Construction is right on track. Rest sure we will share any updates asap. We look forward to welcome you next year. Receive our warmest regards from the Caribbean! 😀

  19. Peter Fender says:

    I have booked a terrace Suite for November 8th – what happens if the hotel is not ready?

    • Hi Peter! Thank you very much for your preference. Please rest sure, the construction is right on schedule. We look forward to welcome you in November. Receive our warmest regards from DR! 😀

      • Peter Fender says:

        That is great news – we have 5 visits to the Excellence Punta Cana Resort so looking forward to it – a quiet location with an ocean view would be great if you are able to make notes on bookings!

  20. Lyle says:

    Booked for 2017! Can’t wait to see the layout/map. Are the swim ups going to be similar to the ones at the finest? Really love those swim ups heading to finest in May

  21. Gary says:

    I have heard lots of good things about Excellence Punta Cana and was planning a trip there until I saw that El Carmen was going to be upon. So we are going to be booking for the El Carmen for first week in October. We can’t wait! Hope it lives up to all the great reviews my friends gave it. See you in October

  23. Paula says:

  24. Claudius says:

    My wife and I stayed at the Excellence Punta Cana in February 2014. One of the nicest things was that we could walk the beach for miles and there were no other resorts south of it, or at least as far as we walked. Have they built anything south of the current Excellence? It was so peaceful and quiet. It was the only place I would want to return. Adult only, excellent service. Fantastic. I hope it has not changed much for when we go back.

    • Hi Claudius! Thank you very much for your preference and interest. We have no information of any construction work on the grounds of EPC. Please consider, the surroundings belong to private owners. However, the beach is Federal property. We hope to welcome you back, soon. Receive our warmest regards from DR! 😀

  25. Katie Igel says:

    Hello! My Fiance and I are trying to decide on a honeymoon location for November of 2016. We are looking into both your Punta Cana and El Carmen location. Can you give me any information on the beach quality and surrounding location of your El Carmen resort? Thank you
