Josh and I have discovered a new love of travel. We have been addicted to all-inclusive resorts ever since our honeymoon. Lots of food, drinks, and beautiful beaches. While we have been to Mexico a couple times already, the Dominican Republic is our new fave! The city of Punta Cana had the most pleasant residents, bluest waves, and palm tree-filled beaches.
Excellence El Carmen was our choice for this fall. This 5-star luxury resort is newly built (it opened in late 2016), so we knew it was going to be top of the line. And we were definitely pleased! The style of the resort was a modern, sleek feel with lots of fabulous, unique decor and beautiful grounds. Compared to the other resorts we have visited, El Carmen has the most character. The restaurants were decorated so elegantly, the sports bar was super cool, and the coffee shop was to-die. And did I mention there was a food truck! By far, this resort was the coolest and kept our eyes active. Plus, the staff was EXCEPTIONAL: so polite and LOTS of fun!
