The staff at the resort we’re incredible! Everyone was so welcoming and friendly and they made the vacation! We had an amazing server, Rocio, who brought us drinks to our swim up everyday and she is a gem. The rooms were clean and had everything we needed. The pools were great and gave the opportunity to meet other people who were vacationing. We attended the show every night, all of which were great. Overall it was an amazing experience and we would go back in a heartbeat.

Unfortunately we had a bad time in this place. They had no hand towels and bath towels all week. Their staff is not knowledgeable on their menu at the restaurants. Their beach is horrible. They have a big loader going around the beach picking up debris all day every day of the week. Wouldn’t recommend this place to any of my friends.

Overall 4.5/5.0 - Room service food better than other comparably priced resorts. Breakfast above average, dinner a little above average. Shows every night. Private pool reasonably sized and private. Rooms large. Closet space impressive. Bathroom could be better as well as bedding not as good as expected for the price. Overall, well worth the price - Would recommend Mexico properties, however, based on what other's told us while staying at El Carmen.

Excellence El Carmen was, as they say, Exelente! The rooms were gorgeous and for the most part well kept. We stayed in the Excellence Club Swim out Honeymoon Suite. Our room faced the ocean and was right next to the main pool. Even though we were close to the main pool we still felt like we had our own private oasis when we wanted to step away from the action. Daniel and the entertainment staff did a great job of keeping guests entertained both day and night. The food and drink were plentiful as they had 13 restaurants and bars that were at your disposal. Overall I would say the food was pretty good for an all inclusive, I particularly liked the Dominican offerings. Excellence club was definitely the way to go. You have access to the private bar and restaurant Magna and the private beach areas. Overall, I would highly recommend going to Excellence El Carmen, it was a beautiful trip and you will be treated extremely well. We are definitely coming back to Excellence whether it’s El Carmen or one of the many other offerings they have throughout the Caribbean.
