Good value for the money

The best thing about the resort is the size and location. It was a perfect size where everything was close by and you didn't have to walk to far to get the pool, beach, or restaurants. The grounds were clean and well kept. The beach was beautiful. Rooms were nice although we had to ask for a few things. The food was just okay, the restaurants were definitely better than the buffet. The nightly shows were fun and it was nice to have something to do in the evening. Not very many staff members spoke English which was very frustrating. For the price is was a good value but I think if I go back to Punta Cana I will try a different resort.

our getaway

Way to many kids. Spring break! Alcohol not very good. No domestic brands. Not much adult activities. Very clean resort as a whole. Beaches were some of the best we have been to. Food, dinner buffet was great included Lobster and Shrimp. Lunch buffet was good. Breakfast buffet a lot of the food was cold that should have been warm. The restaurants had to have reservations put in early to get in. Would not let you eat there with out one even though they were half empty with seating. The restaurant food was not very good any ways. Pizzeria was great. Maintenance of the rooms could have been better. Rooms out dated but comfortable.

Below standard for an Occidental propert

Have stayed at other properties in the Occidental group that were superior. This property is in need of updating, in particular the rooms are dated with badly worn furnishings. Had to speak to guest services three times about no hot water for showers and after the third time the water was luke warm at best. The pools and beaches were very welcoming, the staff was very friendly and hospitable.

Be sure to book reservations early for the a la carte restaurants as the seating times are limited and get filled quickly.

Punta Cana Trip

I rate the hotel a 3 at this point because it rained for 3 days. Although you can't blame the hotel for mother nature, I think the hotel was ill equipped and not prepared for the massive rain that pretty much flooded 3/4's of the hotel. Many people, like myself, looked forward to being in the pool as I do not like being at the beach much. By the time I was leaving, the pool was still not open. Other than that, I would say my stay was pleasant.

good and bad

First of all, the food was good, the staff was very pleasant,and hard working, but the hotel is in great need of repairs. There was no water pressure in the shower. The tiles were cracked, and when it rained there were many leaks. We won't be coming back to this hotel.

Ok Hotel, good use some improvements

Overall our stay was ok - good, 3.5 out of 5. We spent 100% of our time on the resort, mainly at the beach and at the various restraurants. Hotel could use better organization, from the check-in to room cleaning. It took about 40 mins to check-in, and there were some irate guests ahead of us due to some sort of check-in issue. Rooms would be cleaned, then new towels would be provided several hours later. Rooms could use some renovations as the bathroom shower was pretty outdated and dirty from usage and time. 85% of staff was friendly and hospitable, made you feel welcomed.

Do not show up too late if you have a reservation. You will need to wait until the next time slot in order to eat. Which is usually 1.5 hours later.

good vacation for the price!!!@

The hotel location to beach is not too bad. We thought the reception area and bar were very nice. It would be quite helpful if at least some of the people in customer service and check-in spoke better English...at least to help with problems. We were asked to move to another resort after 3 days....We were accommodated very nicely and given another week of all inclusive for free!! The beach was very well kept...as is the entire resort area extremely clean. Rooms and furniture are a bit outdated...the bathrooms are definately outdated! More important though was that rooms were nice and clean with good room service daily. Food was quite good in buffet. A la carte restaurants were OK. We will visit this resort again.

My review of Occidental Grand Punta Cana - All Inclusive

The hotel was very clean and the set up was great. However, the food was mediocre. It was really annoying to make reservations for dinner if you wanted to have Italian, Mexican, Chinese etc. If you did not get up by 8:30 to make reservations, you were left with open buffet or pizza place. Open buffet had a huge line. People smoke like crazy. If you a smoker, it a heaven or if you are not then it's hell. Adults and kids alike cut through the lines to get drinks and food. Getting a place at the beach under the umbrellas was a problem. People got up 6:00 am to place their towels on the seats. If you got there by 7:30, you were out of luck and had place under the sun. They did not play any American songs. Every song was in Spanish. If you speak Spanish, it's a great place. Everybody speaks Spanish. A lot of the staff had hard time communicating in English. For that matter any language other than Spanish.

you get what you pay for

Overall this resort gives fair value for your money. Not much special included. Could have included snorkeling. Food was average although the desserts were very good. None of the meat offerings were impressive, the steakhouse and the oriental were the best for this resort but not top shelf. Most of the service staff spoke little or no English so often had to refer to someone else. The beverage selection was poor unless you wanted to upgrade for $70.00 a day extra. The vacation club reps were a bit pesty but could be rebuked firmly.
