Excellence - El Carmen, Dominican Republic

“Traveling is about finding those things you never knew you were looking for.”

Welcome to the new Excellence Resort. Long beaches, tropical breeze and cocktails. On September 6th my husband and I spent a week at the new Excellence Resort in El Carmen, Dominican Republic. Being that the resort opened on September 1st our arrival was a bit rocky but the island is so beautiful that it made for a peaceful and perfect getaway.

We had the excellence club ocean view swim-up suite and the view was spectacular. With a modern style our 1000 sq. ft suite came with a private terrace and an oversized jacuzzi. This all inclusive, all luxury resort comes with 24 hour room service and 12 international restaurants. My husband and I are not new to the 'Excellence' experience, for our honeymoon we stayed at Excellence Playa Mujeres (read more here). 

I loved the swim-up pool and beach access. My husband and I would spend the afternoon floating around our pool with a cocktail in our hands and running straight to the beach when the moment hit us. We were excited to get back to some of our restaurant faves like Basmati and Spice. I think I went to the Cafe Aroma everyday to get a cup of Spanish coffee.
