Awesome trip

The hotel is well located. Bavaro is located in the Atlantic so the water is not the blue Carribean... See full review

STAY AT OCCIDENTAL!!

If you are looking for a fun place to stay the Occidental Grand Punta Cana is GREAT!!! I just arrived back from my second stay at this resort and this stay was just as fantastic as the last! The resort is very clean, the rooms are nice, and the staff is beyond amazing! Keep in mind this is not a 5 star so you dont have servers bringing you drinks on the beach but you will not have complaints. The food is decent and you have a pretty good variety. The staff will definately make your stay worth every penny!

Very Disappointing

This was the most disappointing trip ever. I had to prop up the edge of the mattress with a pillow to keep from falling out of bed and I am not a large person. And this was the uograded room since my first room was in the middle of the resort civered by trees causing the room to be dsmp and mold in the cirners in the bayhroom. The beach is nice but don't plan on walking into the water unless you take water shoes with you, it is completely lined in coral.

Just OK!

The Occidental was just OK. Everything is determined on the color of bracelet that you receive at check-in. The bracelet let's them know what package you paid for. At times, we were not allowed in certain areas of the beach & pool because of it. Atleast there are multiple pools & the main one has a walk-up bar. The cleanliness & comfort of my room was run-of-the-mill. There is NO ROOM SERVICE. The buffet was low quality & the same everyday. They do have a few restaurants onsite that are a little better. The best part of my trip was the catamaran party boat. It was $55 for 4 hours which included drinks & snorkeling. The night club, Mangu, is on the premises & very good. They give you 1 free drink & you can dance all night. Overall, the hotel has a good location & nice amenities but it lacks in customer service & good food.

Good hotel for the price

I would recommend this hotel - it is a bit older and is in the process of being updated but for the price the room was comfortable and clean, the beach was lovely and the food was excellent and there were plenty of options to keep your interest! They need to improve the dancing on the beach - ours was not fun and my friend and I ended up walking down the beach for another hotel's morning zumba in the sand. The entertainment was a bit lacking overall.

Love Punta Cana

This was my 4th time back to Dominican Republic but the first time at the Occidental hotel. I stayed for 4 days with my boyfriend and had a great time. I thought the beach was beautiful, nicer than farther down the hotel strip in Punta Cana. The location of our room was perfect to, a smaller resort so it looks like all the rooms are close to the beach and pool. For me the location was perfect, I like going off the resort and restaurants and tourist bars were within walking distance of the hotel. I thought the rooms were a little dated, especially the bathrooms but it was still very clean and a typical Caribbean style. Fresh fruit in the room in the morning was delicious. I had better buffet food at other resorts but the snacks and lunch were good. I would definitely go back.

Awesome trip

The hotel is well located. Bavaro is located in the Atlantic so the water is not the blue Carribean as the hotels located un Romana for example. But the beach is beautiful, there are 3 pools that are not crowded. The staff is super kind. There is a night club located few steps from reception so you can have fun without leaving the hotel. Also if you have kids have a kid's club for them. The food is just like the other all inclusive hotels. Also I highlly recommend to book your transportation from airport to hotel. Taxi are not very reliable and the hotel is about 30 min from airport!
