Awesome trip

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

Good hotel for the price

I would recommend this hotel - it is a bit older and is in the process of being updated but for the price the room was comfortable and clean, the beach was lovely and the food was excellent and there were plenty of options to keep your interest! They need to improve the dancing on the beach - ours was not fun and my friend and I ended up walking down the beach for another hotel's morning zumba in the sand. The entertainment was a bit lacking overall.

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.

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!

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

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

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!!

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!

Its good if you want to be in town with locals

This hotel is nice but is outdated a little. Needs a lot of remodelation. The beach is beautiful. The staff needs to be more symphatetic and organized. Food is not really good but for what you pay is ok. The good thing is the dicsco, beach and the grounds it self is nice.

Average vacation

Resort is located on a beautiful island, and has a really nice beach. The time we went, June, it was very hot and humid, but if you go in the water now and then to cool off it is fine. This resort certainly did not have everything one could ask for. Staff was not attentive, or very friendly. Resort was older and out dated. Our first room was infested with mosquito and had a broken toilet along with a dripping air conditioner. After asking to be moved we had a better room. However, we called the resort ahead of time to confirm our reservation and ask for joining rooms with a view of the ocean. When we got there we had neither. Once we walked around the resort it seems that there arent even any rooms that have views of the ocean. The pools were very large and kept clean. The grounds around the resort were also kept very nice. The food was lacking a lot. There were four restaurants that were okay. But you are only allowed to go to three during a weeks stay. The buffet for lunch and dinner was not that great. The staff needed to be asked several times in order to get something, like water. Most of the beach chairs were old and broke. The towel hut was located on one end of the beach. There were hardly any organized activities during the day. The resort does not have a purification system therefore the water in the resort can NOT be consumed, as most resorts it can be. This is my third stay in Punta Cana, and I would rate this hotel as the worse of the three. Although it lacked a lot, it was overall a good price. The beach in Punta Cana is amazing though and is what keeps me returning.
