Just the name alone tells you what to expect…Excellence! There are several beautiful, five-star Excellence Resorts, which we will write about in the future, but this blog is about Excellence Resort Punta Cana.
All Excellence Resorts are adults-only paradises. It’s where you go with that special someone when you want the romance of the Caribbean and some well deserved time off. When is the last time you took a well-deserved vacation from the hustle and bustle of life?
All Excellence Resorts are first class, but with direct flights from several cities, including Houston, Excellence Resort Punta Cana located in the Dominican Republic is the most popular.
At Fox Travel our motto is “We’ve been there!” and we have. Just ask Jim & Donna or Alma here at Fox Travel. See more from Alma here. We love this resort and the white sand beach is to live for. When we send out clients on vacation, we ensure they get all the perks, extras, upgrades, that are often only available to travel agents. Besides, we’ll start your vacation before you even get there. Let us do all the arrangements, booking and communication with the resort for you and you use that time learning about Punta Cana.

The Area and Location
The sound of ocean waves and the rhythms of the tropics are Punta Cana’s soundtrack, complementing a laid-back island culture that welcomes you from the moment of arrival. Be adventurous and go cave exploring, enjoy snorkeling in crystal clear waters or take an exhilarating zip-line. At certain times of the year, you can go whale watching, and there are always fun catamaran sailing to the best snorkeling spots.
You’ll find much to explore. There are wildlife reserves, ecological areas, you can swim with dolphins or take a boat ride over to Isla Saona, one of the most naturally beautiful spots in the Dominican Republic. Make a stop at a sandbar for a dip in starfish-filled waters.
In Punta Cana, there is a magical blend of new and historical. You’ll find 15th-century villages, basilicas, and colonial-ruins. The capital of Santo Domingo is home to the first cathedral in the Americas, the Cathedral, Santa María la Menor. Enjoy a romantic walk through the Colonial Quarters and see the oldest city in The New World.
Excellence Resort Punta Cana is located along a perfect 30-mile stretch of palm-lined coast and is surrounded by a beautiful palm grove, bordering a beach of fine white sand.
It’s easy to access the resort as it’s just 35 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport and 75 minutes from La Romana International Airport.
We recommend that you fly directly to the Punta Cana airport as there are numerous scheduled flights and airline charters from the USA and international locations.
