EXCELLENCE Resort Punta Cana - New thread started April 2010

Recommended Posts

One more thing, which photographer from Photosouvenir did you use and which package did you go with? My friend may not be able to come now so I'm trying to figure out all our options and considering prices into our budget and all.  Thanks, congrats again!

Arturo was our photographer @ Excellence. I can't say enough wonderful things about our pictures. They turned out sooooo good, I'm happy with all of them. We did the 2 hour gold package. You get a discount of $268 (I think) off the package if you're wedding pkg includes photos. We spent a little over an hour before the ceremony taking pictures & then probably another 30-45 minutes after. We were able to enjoy our whole cocktail hour & we had all the right lighting for all of the photos. We did the 20 minute video through Photo Souvenir as well & it turned out perfect as well. I think 20 minutes is just the right length. They recorded the whole ceremony as well as the photo shoot afterward. The edited version of it looks really good. If you pay for your photos with cash or traveler's checks, you also get a 10% discount on everything.

Thanks Amy, that's the package we were looking at (as well as doing a TTD...but again, budget depending) I was worried that two hours wouldn't be enough, but it looks like you got a ton of shots.  We are doing the upgraded package at the resort that includes photos (we opted for the Excellence Club for 7 nights to get the discount there) And thanks so much for the heads up on the 10%, did you pay with US dollars, or did you have to exchange your money for pesos?  Thanks again, and congrats!

Hey ladies, we booked our honeymoon at Excellence and getting married at Dreams.  Does anybody know which building are the Excellence Club rooms?  Trying to figure out where we might be on the resort map.  Thanks!

keight, we were in bldg 7. Bldg's 7 & 8 are Excellence Club rooms. Not sure about the others though.

 

On another note, I'm working on my review but I can't seem to find the NEW review section. Anybody have any pointers?

According to Tammy, reviews go in the vendor sections but I found this confusing so my next post will be my review. I hope it's helpful & if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

OOT bag question for those who have been to Excellence, particularly in April/May...does it get chilly at night? I've seen a lot of girls put pashminas in the OOT bags and supposedly they're a hit, but if it doesn't get chilly at night, I don't really see a point to it. Any thoughts? We're already doing the OOT bag itself, personalized travel mugs, zip lock badge holders and lanyards, first aid kits, reed diffusers, hand sanitizer, Emergen-C packets, and some natural meds (wow, now that I list it all, I think it is enough anyway)  I just don't want to spend unnecessarily, that's all.  Thanks!  Getting so excited for April now!!
