A true vacation-not just a trip

this was our 5th visit to the Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta and we enjoyed it the most of any of our 20 trips to Mexico. There were several adventures available to us, but because we have experienced them all, we spent the days just enjoying the beach and activities at the pool.It was very relaxing and the staff (especially Vincente and Liz) did everything they possibly could to ensure our enjoyment.The two on site restaurants were elegant and tasteful and the food was fantastic (especially the lamb chops). The only downside was the house wine was not as good as we wished so we remedied that by purchasing a bottle of very good wine at a fair price.Our room was very comfortable with a terrific view of the resort and the ocean.would recommend a king bed because two standards can be close if sleeping together.there is no need to leave the resort, but we visited Puerto Vallarta on Wednesday evening for their art walk where all the galleries have open house. We also visited Buscereus on Thursday for their art walk and ate at Sandrinas restaurant-WOW ! WE highly recommend this resort !

The Occidental Grande was a great value. The staff was personable and friendly. Overall, a good experience. We wished the Ocean view rooms had balconies and offered free WiFi.

Terrible!!

Let me start by saying that I am not hard to please! As a all inclusive resort- was terrible,!! Food was terrible and on,y thing we thought was good was omelette bar in am. Other than that it was just bad.. We tried buffets, snack bars, restaurants even our "upgrade. Royal club " was terrible! Dried , cold food on buffets and if ordered off menu wasn't delivered as ordered or just not tasty. Room air was on a motion control with 5 min timer so at night while sleeping would go off and room would get warm. No HOT water- only Luke warm to shower.. The extra cost for "royal club " was a joke! ,nothing special except more room iin room .. Service staff was not good.. Restaurants would frequently forget to being us our drinks and would have to get them ourselves or remind them. Could go on and on.... Don't waste your money!! Bttw I witnessed at least 2 other families complaining to staff about similar issues so really not sure how they have 4+ stars! Very disappointed to have taken my whole family for a holiday and terrible experience! We did enjoy ourselves and beautiful place but we stayed out of resort much more then intended and ate of site.. Very costly,

Good value!

Good value for the money! Nice, clean rooms, good service, good staff. No balconies is a minus. Was unable to get Wifi. It is definitely time to change company providing WIfi. Was unable to get any despite the fact, that had to fill out online forms numerous times. Overall good experience.

Beautiful Getaway

Overall, we were very impressed with this resort. The food was excellent, the service was even better. We had no problems with the maid service or with salespeople in the lobby - yes, they are there, but they didn't bother us at all. The ala-carte restaurants were both very impressive, the Italian especially was wonderful. The buffet had more selection than I expected.. yes, it did get a little repetative by the end of the week, but not before then. None of got sick at all, and we ate whatever we wanted. I can't comment on the snack bar, however, as we didn't use it. The beach vendors were a little annoying, but you could always sit by the pool if you preferred not to interact with them. The adult pool was a nice touch for a quiet area, great for just lounging. However, I would still say this was more of a family resort - we weren't there with kids, but it seems kid-friendly, and there was no nightlife to speak of. We didn't care about that, but if you're looking for a "spring break" atmosphere, I would probably not recommend coming here. The night time entertainment is nothing to speak of. The lack of wifi was a little annoying, but I suppose it's a good way to make you unplug and really relax! The Starbucks just down the street was a fine solution for us - a quick walk in the morning to grab a drink and check email. It's attached to a very touristy little mall, but it was a fine place to pick up some souvenirs. There's also a little grocery store attached, which had much better prices for things you may have forgotten than the resort gift shop. As always, it's the staff that makes the experience. Alejandro and Jorge in the buffet were just wonderful.
