It is completely supervised by professionals who are certified in CPR and First Aid through the Red Cross. Here, your children will have the opportunity to complete arts and crafts, participate in sandcastle contests, movies on the beach and games!

Excellence Punta Cana – Adult Only Option
The Excellence Punta Cana is a great option for couples who are hoping to avoid children and teens. This is because the resort is exclusively adult only. It offers a wide range of all-inclusive amenities that include a private white sandy beach, two swimming pools, two outdoor Jacuzzis, nine restaurants that do not require a reservation, and ten bars that are located on the beach and by the pool. They also offer twenty-four hours room service and waiter service at the beach and the poolside.
