Pretty on the outside

As a family we have traveled many places and stayed at different resorts. This is one we will not stay at ever again. My biggest complaint in the rooms is MOLD! The mold spilling out of the vents was so bad. I used a clean wipe I had an after one pass it was completely black. We called to have all 3 of our rooms ac vents cleaned. When the rooms were cleaned 2 days in a row we were left with out towels. The omelet guys did a great job, the Japanese restaurant was amazing. Pizza place was fantastic. My kids ate it daily. On a good note.. the Dominican beaches are beautiful, the people we kind. We will go back to the DR and stay elsewhere.

Ok

Check in was last and smooth, pablo was awesome at the front desk. All week we were there he helped us with any questions we had. I wanted to tip him at the end of our trip but we ran out of cash. The room was ok but lots of mosquito in the room when we walked in. My tub was clogged so all week long we all showered in a pool of dirty water. The bartenders all looked so miserable and seemed like they didn't want to be bothered. The food was ok at the buffet. Other restaurant i was disappointed i wanted authentic Dominican food and the one place you think you could get some the service sucked. Waited about 35min just for apps and another 35 mins later for our food. I noticed man in general gets better service than the females. The pool and beach was nice. Wish it was more live entertainment on both side of the pool or aleast music. One side of the pool had no actions for the whole week. The teatro area stinks no fan, ac unit in there. It was so humid most night, we got all bit up from the mosquito one night. We were so afraid to go back the next few days we were there.

Good for the money

Just got back from Occidental Caribe from spending 6 days there. The room we was given had an amazing view to the ocean but the beds were not that much comfortable and very small to share with two adults and 2 kids. I disnt have a problem sharing the bed with the baby but my husband and 6yr old slept very tight on the bed. Also, our room was in the 3300 wing right Above the Buffett. All we heard was plates being slammed after 10pm assuming the employees cleaning up and then the again early in the morning around 6am. Very Very Loud it woke up my baby every morning and had trouble putting him to sleep at night. Room was kept clean at all times, good housekeeping. There are no ACs in the buffett or snack areas, very uncomfortable to eat when you are dripling in sweat, snack area didnt eaven have fans. pools were good. lacked activity for the kids. beach was great, but there was no bar close enough to grabs drinks, had a bit of a walk to the lobby bar or to the snack bar. The restaurants were all good, makes those reservations ahead. So bottom line, I mean you get what you pay for so it was good for the price.

Resort OK, Beach and Pool is best thing

Price good- The grounds, Beach area and Pools great. Rest is average or fair. Food in buffett was bland and service slow. Restaurants are good Room was fair. lumpy bed. Cleaned okay. Very loud hotel in most areas. Buffet area loud, music playing at night til 1130 loud and can hear in room so hard to sleep as crowds continue the party long after midnight. Bring earplugs. If you want pizza, it's only in one spot and you must be dry and dressed and dine in and only a whole pizza ordered. so no pizza by the slice or grab when at pool or beach. They did have hamburger/hotdogs at Pool/Beach area that was okay. Entertainment staff is good and nice, but nightly shows are in a hot theater, no fans or air circulation so hard to stay for the shows when your melting. Premium Alcohol upgrade is pricey, $25 a day per person per night, then it's only located in one room on 3rd floor at an area farthest from pool beach and room so very inconvenient. My phone was stolen the last day there form our pool chair while swimming so lost all my pics so can't share those but it is pretty place. But suggest looking elsewhere, all beaches along that strip are super nice.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive and all-aahmazing. You'll want for nada.

Metamorphosis Spa. Aloe-vera body wraps & Shiatsu massages transform you. Body & soul.

An in-water jungle gym, water-spraying palm tree and ginormous frog for your beach babies.

Family fun like supervised trapeze training & a trampoline. Yes, you read that right.

Mediterranean-style architecture makes you feel all royal.

 

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

It's just a 25 short minutes from the airport. Your sandsational vacay will begin pronto.

There's scuba & snorkeling. Water polo & water basketball. Get splashy.

Three tennis courts and a climbing wall offer fun on terra firma & for those who enjoy heights.

Golf is only 20 minutes away at an 18-hole, par-72 course designed by Juan Manuel Gordilla.

Eco-adventures tours are available for all the explorer types out there.
