We were greeted by Christian as soon as we exited our vehicle. He was extremely friendly and made us feel like he was welcoming us home! The waiters and waitresses at The Agave, The Grill, and The Kitchen Table were very friendly. Felix B. at the Sports Bar was like a breath of fresh air. He always had a bright smile each and every time we visited the bar. The chicken wings were delicious! The waitresses and hosts at the Lobster House were extremely rude both times we ate there. Kassandra with the entertainment staff was so friendly! I loved her enthusiasm and she always wanted to make sure you were having an awesome time! The resort is gorgeous and well kept. My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay!

The resort it’s very large.We had a swim out room and it was amazing. The only thing I would change if we come again it would be the ocean view with the swim out. The staffs are very friendly and make sure you get what you need. Definitely a five stars from me.

Thank you for choosing Excellence El Carmen as the host of your Caribbean holiday and for taking your valued time to share your review. Also, thank you for adding very generous remarks on the positive sides of your vacation with us and mentioning the services that made your stay more comfortable. The staff members are one of the core pillars of our resort to offer an unforgettable guest experience, and their attitude is intended to exceed the expectations of all our guests and provide them with a service as personalized as possible. In addition, the food area is an important aspect we consider and that’s why our Chefs are passionate about taking care of every single detail and they personalize our service and cuisine to suit the different tastes and preferences of all our guests, although we will revise why during your getaway, we did not seem to blow you away with delicious food and beverages in every meal at some restaurants. Therefore, we can assure you that your constructive criticism has been taken by our team in order to keep standards and ensure your satisfaction. Greetings from The Excellence Collection.
