What's to Love

Occidental Caribe's Mediterranean-style architecture stands apart from most other resorts in this area. It also affords plenty of space to find your own little beachy corner of heaven.

 

What We'd Change

Necessary items, such as sunscreen, can be pretty pricey at the resort's shops. Bring plenty with you, and you'll have no problem getting oodles of pictures of your well-protected bronzed bod.

 

Why You Should Go

The resort is ideal for families, thanks to its many activities- like supervised trapeze training and a trampoline. Few other area hotels offer a more private escape to paradise.

Hotel Description

Occidental Caribe: Luxury in Technicolor

Do you ever feel like you're living in a black-and-white world? Perhaps you owe yourself a vacation - in Technicolor - at Occidental Caribe. This beach resort has a vibrant, multi-hued, Mediterranean-style makeover. You'll be instantly uplifted by the colorful ambiance of this all-inclusive resort.

Multi-task the right way by enjoying a Caribbean Vitamin Cocktail while spending time in one of Metamorphosis Spa's Jacuzzis or massage cabins. While you're there, treat yourself to a soothing, natural, aloe-vera body wrap before a Shiatsu massage, or Scentao hot-stone therapy. Make sure to also fit in a mani-pedi at Metamorphosis' salon, so you're pretty and primped for an unforgettable night on the town.

If you're a sun bunny, you'll find respite in the free-form, lagoon-style pool, complete with swim-up bar. Your little bunnies can take advantage of the adjacent kid's pool, where they'll find an in-water jungle gym, including a water-spraying palm tree and a giant frog. And you can all claim your spot on Playa Arena Gorda, one of the largest swimmable beaches in the Dominican Republic.

When you're ready to grab some grub, you'll find that El Marlin restaurant satisfies any cravings, including old-fashioned barbecue and seafood delicacies. Or, take your cravings on an around-the-world tour of international fare at the aptly-named Roma, Tokio, and Paris restaurants. From amenities to munchies, Occidental Caribe offers a host of colorful ways to savor your well-deserved vacation.
