We stayed at Excellence Punta Cana and recommend it. Its a smaller all inclusive so had a more intimate feel but still had a great selection of restaurants, huge pool, private beach etc.. Excellence resorts in general are great.

nowthisistaken :  I would plan to bring cash. You want to tip the bartender, the maids, shuttle drives at least we did and I saw most people doing the same. 

No extra cost for the sister resorts!

Yes, it’s an all day excursion but sooooooooo worth it. Our guide was so funny he made it a blast. It’s the most beautiful waters you’ve ever seen!!! Lunch is included and you are back before dinner. However, I would recommend snacks and LOTS of sunscreen!!!

Nice post! I’m looking at something very similar, the only difference is that I’d be flying form Chicago! 

We went to an all-inclusive in Riviera Maya last year and loved it. For whatever reason we want to go somewhere different for our honeymoon. Our travel agent has steered us towards Punta Cana or Negril, but I’m worried Negril would be too secluded? 

We want to have a relaxing all-inclusive experience by the beach/pools/swim-up bars, but Fiance likes to go off-roading and ziplining, so we’re hoping there’d be some sort of “adventure tour” nearby. Unfurtunately, he gets seasick, so no boats or snorkeling 🙁

nowthisistaken :  I can recommend Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro. It’s on Bavaro Beach in Punta cana. We went there about 5 years ago when it was pretty new and had a great time. We were there in July so it was their quiet season. It’s a rather small resort but when you stay at the Grand you have access to the other Iberostar hotels right next door. iIt;s a very romantic and quiet resort with 5 star service. We ended up honeymooning at the Iberostar Grand Paraiso in Mexico but I know you said you didn’t want to do Mexico. It is rather pricey but soooo worth it for us to stay at the Iberostar Grand locations. Super Luxe!!
