About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We went on our honeymoon at the Excellence El Carmen and we were blown away with how beautiful everything was. Champagne constantly, smiles from all the employees, and gorgeous amenities. The rooms were a great size and we had a private hot tub in the room. I recommend splurging for the excellence club as it provided private beach access where there was always a cabana open, a spa treatment, and extra service throughout. The staff was both friendly and professional as the majority of them spoke good English and were available to help if needed. We were very pleased with the resort and our time spent there.

Review:   This is a most amazing resort with everything that you could ask for. The food was delicious, the views spectacular, the people who work here are the friendliest and most helpful people that I have even encountered on vacation. Mildred and David made our daily beach experience exceptional - within one visit they knew our names, our favorite place to sit on the beach, our favorite drinks and they were so sociable, friendly and fun that we looked forward to seeing them each day. Our room was immaculate (as was the entire resort), the pools were sparkling and refreshing and the experience was one of a kind. My husband and I will definitely be returning to Excellence El Carmen as often as possible.

Review:   I toured this resort with a bunch of ladies and I was blown away by the resort. Their pool restaurant has unlimited lobster! Their coffee shop has a spinning carousel of ice cream! The a la cartel restaurants are well-decorated with a great assortment of cuisine (it was my first time seeing an Indian a la carte restaurant at an all-inclusive resort). Their basic room looked so chic and impressive I cannot wait to stay there someday myself!

Review:   My wife and I recently stayed for our 25th Wedding anniversary and loved every minute at El Carmen. The hardest working friendliest staff you can imagine inhabit this resort. They'll get you involved if you want or let you relax if that;s what you prefer. We had an ocean view room on the second floor and I thought I was in paradise. This is a detail oriented staff who looked after our every need. The food was good, especially at the French and Grill restaurants. Loved the beach, ocean, pools, restaurants etc. There was everything from sports to leisure activities and the work out facilities were fantastic. Highly recommend the quiet pools in the back of the facility for an afternoon siesta. I just can't say enough great things about our stay and obviously high recommend Punta Cana El Carmen.

Review:   Went in January 2017. Amazing trip shared by four close friends. Realized warm water lobster is not the same as the New England lobster I’m used to. The buffet has amazing food! If you’re looking to save money, the buffet daily will be enough to satisfy you! Tons of stories about stealing and upgrading rooms. We had something stolen and got our room upgraded. So you win some and lose some. To get an upgrade, make sure you keep asking for the manager, and possibly slip him some $$$$$$.
