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.

What a great Vacation.

Everyone was soooo friendly and helpful. If I had a request, it was taken care of it right away. It was such a great experience. Thank you. I will always search your side now for good deals. The Hotel, the staff and the food was so amazing and great. The Buffet had so many choices and it tasted delicous.

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

family vacation of 17 people

*WARNING* WATCH OUT WITH IS MOTEL. This does not deserve to be call a resort. I was here with a party of 17 people week of Aug. 24-31 ,2013. This place is horrible. I have been to all-inclusive before in other countries and in Punta Cana before, but this place deserves 2stars if that. Here is a list why not to go to this place. Rooms disgusting and out dated, bathroom tub dirty with mildew and small bugs around sink, also found mildew on pillows on beds. Friends room had no A/C, they wouldn't clean your room until 5-7pm. Electric would go out certain times of day, also the water. One time I was in the lobby at 1:00am it went out, you couldn't see your hand in front of you. They wouldn't tell you when it would go out. Entertainment was a POOR thing to see, music will shut off by pools after 6pm for the rest of the night. There are 3 pools, the front one the largest of them all was missing 2feet of water, also if you need a towel you would have to go walk about 10 min to get one if they had clean ones or if it was still open. Also bathrooms you had to take a walk to find one and if you were a the last pool and it closed it meant to have to walk 10min . Service was HORRIBLE and with an ADDITUDE and SLOW. You would order a drink get it 15 to 20 min later or not at all. Couldn't get tables to eat even if we saw sections open. Food could of been better also, Had to eat a lot on buffet, cause the restaurants they had you have to make RSVP . There was only 4, steakhouse closed said repairing, and only allowed 3 RSVP per week of stay. Could only eat once at each restaurant if they have time available and that was a problem too to make. And we saw tables open that could be filled. There is so much to keep going on about this place, but this is a WARNING on this place, whoever gives this place three stars and more, does not or has never been to a 4 to 5 star RESORT. This is a motel with three pools that's it. Ramirez 10201
