Awesome trip

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

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.

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.

Nice Resort... Diving not so hot...

Nice resort with a friendly staff. Buffets were pretty good. The diving was not so hot. Dove 4 days and never got deeper than 45 feet. Reefs were a bit bleak with sparse sea life. This is definitely NOT a dive destination.

Disappointed

The rooms in this resort are very neglected, many without working air-conditioners. Complaints are mostly ignored. The hotel website features ala carte restaurants, however it is almost impossible to get reservations. The resort caters to the promotion of selling timeshares. The salesmen for the timeshare hold most of the reservations for the restaurants and will make them for you if you take a tour. The hotel has very limited reservations available, yet when you show up at the restaurant it is half full. The entertainment staff is awesome! The beach is beautiful.

One of the worst trips ever!

Our first room was decent except for the noise from the daily pool party and nightly show. We were not asked if that was ok. We asked to be moved and that's when the trouble started. The air conditioner leaked even after being fixed. It even began leaking into the bathroom. The water from the shower spilled over onto the floor and would not drain so some was left in the tub as standing water. We were moved again and the air was not as cool as we would have liked. The shower was the same. It drained onto the floor and water did not drain. Took some time to get our reservations correct. The air did not work in two of the three restaurants that was open so eating was uncomfortable to say the least. Speaking of eating, the food was not very good as a whole. There were some good dishes, but not enough. Some meals were the same each day. Communicating with the staff was hard because most did not speak very good English. We were harassed constantly about buying something. The only saving grace was a nice massage and the beach. I was truly unhappy on this trip. Occidental will not see me again.

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!

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.
