Had everything I wanted when I wanted it - especially peace and quit during the day and appropriate activities during the evening. People were very nice and inclusive.

Great resort, our second time to this resort. The facilities are immaculate, service is excellent in all areas of the resort. The recreation or entertainment team is outstanding led by Casandra. The activities at the pool, activities at night, live shows, bands etc. are top notch. I highly recommend the resort to anyone. They make every guest feel important and will meet your every need with a smile. Dislikes: None, other than our 10 nights stay had to end!!

We really enjoyed excellence El Carmen. The Facility was great, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, I would say that if you have allergies you need to be aware of the foods on any buffet table. Two separate times I asked if there were Nuts in my meal and was told an emphatic no. However, there were almonds in the sautéed spinach and in one of the ice creams. Very dangerous- the staff asked the chef and I just don’t know why I was given incorrect information.

Incredible staff across the resort that really care about your experience and will do anything to make sure your stay is comfortable and memorable. Great option for anyone in the gay/lgbtq community - felt right at home here with my partner and plan to return again.

We were there celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary. When we first arrived at the resort (which is approx 40-45minutes from airport) we were greeted with a friendly smile and super nice employees. We were given champagne and cool towels that smelled like eucalyptus, they were heavenly. The staff got our luggage and escorted us to the Excellence Club area where we were given our room keys, told us about what all was included in our excellence club package, and they were aware of our anniversary. We were then escorted with our luggage, to our room by Wilkin! Upon arriving to our room it had a banner across the door that said happy anniversary. Upon entering the room, the only complaint would be the musky smell. Maybe it’s difficult to get rid of the smell bc it’s so close to the beach/pool/ areas. The room was very clean, our refrigerator did not get cold; however it was restocked daily. There is plenty of liquor to drink inside your room, and everything else inside the room was good. We had to request a fan and was given one on our second day which was nice since the temperature in the rooms didn’t get as cold as we would of liked. We were informed by another couple we met that the Hydrotherapy massage was included in the Excellwnce Club Membership, that was not communicated to us Also, we could of gotten a cabana on the beach with our excellence club and were not told about that. The bar pool was very warm, the bar tenders were nice. Maritza, Elizabeth, Black Coffey al
