So a group of 6 of us (mid 30's) were about to book Excellence Punta Cana for a week in October -- we wanted to wait a week or two to see if the prices went down. It appears now that they have no availability the week we want to go. SO --- we need to find another option.
Here is what is important to us (and why we settled on Excellence). We were looking for:
1) An adult only resort where we didn't have to go to a "family side" for restaurants. We are staying 7 nights and wanted to remain on an adults side with plenty of restaurant options without kids.
2) We also wanted a beach volleyball court on the adult side (not having to compete with kids and teens to play some of the recreational sports.....volleyball, tennis, etc....)
3) A relaxing environment, preferably with a swim up bar and mid-top shelf liquor in the all inclusive.
4) Food that is better than 'decent'.
