Excellence April 18-25 ( younger groups) oh and golf?

My wife, brother and friend will be traveling here for a wedding on these dates, we are early 30's and early 20's! We are going for a family wedding and will be traveling with a bit of an older group, early 50's. From what I can tell it seems the resort is pretty quite, is there much that goes on for night life? We are defiantly not a spring break crowd but we are on vacation and looking to have a good time. Is this going to be a problem? What is the disco like, does anyone even go? Is there places to go off resort that are close/ safe? I also have notice there is no golf course on the resort, is there a place close by, if so prices?

Tks for the help!

Don't know about Excellence but I'm sure someone will assist you maybe Mark (MHEATH) however Excellence is way up North and far from everything... If it's dead at night your closest option would be taking a taxi to Oro at Hard Rock casino..

Only other 2 options that are cheap is Imagines and Jewel because in their drink packages they include transportation so your not paying crazy taxi fares... However since your in Uvero Alto up North there drink packages have an extra fee (not much) for instance Imagine which is a club in a cave offers a package 60$ which is cover, transportation and open bar but since your in Uvero Alto it's an additional 10$ for transportation so it would be 70$.

The evening entertainment at Excellence consists of a sax player, or piano player, small band, or something like that in the early evening, and then a live band in the courtyard, with dancing, and then a show in the adjacent theatre, and then a live band again. Sometimes, they have a small band late at night. They have a great sports bar, a casino, and a disco. I've only been to the disco a few times, and it was fairly lively. They have theme nights, like toga parties, and such. They also have theme / beach parties maybe twice a week.

There's not much off resort close by. I think the nearest golf course is 15 to 20 minutes away.

Thanks! Is it a good mix of people at this resort ie couples, singles, younger, older? Just trying to get a feel for the resort! Have told my brother who just turned 20 that it's not gonna be like his last years spring break but he can enjoy himself at our mothers wedding lol!

careful cadnmil79,

Older group Early 50's?, we may tear and fether you upon arrival, lol.

the Excellence is not a typical kid's place in their earliest 20's, but you will find guests of all adults ages.

it is not any boring place, but sure nothing any near of his last years springbreak travel, heck, at least i hope such good resort will never become such.

the adults only place which seems to run with more action is the Breathless by the looks on it, never stayed at that new property, but they seem to steer more towards a lil party.

the Excellence is great, even in my 20's i would have enjoyed it in the right company, in my early 20's as a single I just would have "tolerated" a week as for Mom's wedding of course.

have fun

Mike

What is the dress code for diner like for men? Will khaki or beach pants work, or do they need to be dress pants? And for a shirt will a polo shirt be fine? Do shoes need to be closed toe or will a nice leather sandal work? How strict do they inforce these rules?

Long pants, and collared shirts with sleeves. Polo shirts are fine. I typically wear Dockers, but jeans are fine. I believe it's closed toe shoes for men. I really haven't paid attention to how strictly these things are enforced. People tend to dress fairly nicely for dinner there.

This is for indoor restaurants, by the way. They do have outdoor / open air restaurants as well. There are 4 restaurants that are indoor only, 2 that have indoor and outdoor options, and 3 that are outdoor only. And there are theme dinners on or by the beach once or twice a week.
