Economical Weekend Getaway

Overall and in relation to the price - good value. Italian Restaurant was under renovation. Thus only Steakhouse & Oriental to choose from for a evening Dinner. Overall experience was disappointing in both restaurants - service good but food below average. Hotel is too large though - 860 rooms and from Friday - Sunday, very full, which also impacted the service level, i.e. Room Cleaning, waiting time for Lunch at the Restaurant etc. The evening shows were mediocre. Mangu Disco is quite nice though. Also, a lot of kids. Not the place for an Adult only type getaway!

Eh

Coming from the US, for some reason I expected at least some English to be spoken... that' would be a nope... location on the beach great, buffet was actually better than the restaurants. There were little bugs crawling in the bathroom and we got a notice that the room was to be fumigated, but wasn't... all in all beach was good, make sure you get to beach early or no way you are going to sit in anything but sand... Hotel should make all towels be returned at end of day... that way the same people can't get same seats on beach EVERY DAY!!

Fantastic customer experience!!

Everything in the hotel was superb..customer service, food quality, night club, the beach, and the night shows. I want to recognize and thank Marcelo from the front desk because he was exceptional. He demonstrated a true interest and dedication to ensure that me and my wife had a wonderful time in the hotel. Highly recommend this hotel and their overall service! Cristina and Chris.

The Pros and Cons

Pros: -such a friendly staff, they remember your names, and really make you feel welcome and at home. By the end, we would hangout with them at the pool. They even joined us in a couple games of volleyball. -very accomodating hotel -amazing pool that runs through the entire property with an in pool bar -directly on the beach with so many chairs to lay out on and huts to stay in the shade -free things to do both night and day. The staff put on a disco one night, there were a bunch of fun pool activities, nightly shows etc. -Free waterbottles throughout the entire hotel including the refriedgerator in your room -There are also a ton of on site excursions including parasailing, pictures with monkeys, banana boat rides, and snorkleing. Cons: -Food: there are five places included in the all inclusive and an additional three if you make reservations. The food itself isnt very fresh/tastes bland. The pizza place (open til 4 am) and buffet by the beach are good though. -The stores on site are ridiculously expensive so dont plan on buying sunscreen there unless you want to spend $38 for a bottle. -The vendors who come on site are very pushy so learn to say no multiple times. -Our bathroom had a leak in it and wasnt clean when we got there Overall, I would recommend this resort to any of my friends, especially for the price!

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.

Better than 3 stars

The place was very good. The best beach in Bavaro. The food wasn't that good and everyday the same. In the fifth day you need to go out and eat something better and new. The town near the hotel is awful, you wont like to go anywhere.

Horrible

Checked in and was sent to another resort for two days because they were overbooked. The other resort was phenomenal. Constant harassment about timeshares, purchasing additional excursions. Food was horrible. They should stick to local food. Worst Chinese I ever had. Constant harassment from vendors selling goods. Do not go to Occidental!

FRAUDULENT CREDIT CARD CHARGES. AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Was frauded and scammed by vacation club people. Beware. Jose Severino and a woman named Felicia. I will be contacting the authorities about this resort. This is apart from the water bugs found in the room and housekeeping staff that was barely present. STAY FAR AWAY! Stayed December 2013
