Amazing beach

The check in was a bit confusing but after that a fantastic time! Most of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Very few spoke enlglish though. The room wasn't anything spectacular but we were only in it to sleep. The beach and pools were amazing. One of the nicest spots on the beach! Many of the other hotels we walked by were very small beaches. The food was ok. A lot of salt and oil though. Hard to get reservations to the restaurants that require them. We picked the resort for the beach. And were very happy with that decision!

Shop at the open market about 20 min walk down the beach. Much cheaper than anything at the resort

Occidental punta cana

I stayed here with a friend and the staff was one of my favorite parts of the trip, Yes they may speak a little English but they are very nice and attentive and try their best to accommodate you. When I first arrived I received a king bed, I spoke to the bell boy and they quickly changed me to a double bed. I stayed in number ten not fat from poll and right across from buffet. It is a walk to the beach, but I personally enjoyed staying at this building. The pools are nice and the food is not bad and they know how to change up the buffet every night. I would return here and by only complaint is that maybe the bathrooms should get renovated. They look a little rusty and old fashioned, by they were very clean.

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.

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!!

Ok hotel

The hotel was ok. We did not have hot water for our stay and I did not like the fact that you have to book the restaurants between 8am-noon for dinner. We also had mosquitoes in our room but they gave us bug spray. Overall, the hotel was okay. I would recommend staying at other hotel if possible.
