Bad food, bad drink.

If you’re headed on a vacation for some great food and good drinks, don’t bother with this place. Rooms are modern, but run down. Food is far from good. The best meal was Italian - in the Dominican. All liquor is bottom shelf, Dominican liquor. Only beer on the resort is El Presidente, with the exception of coors light in your room. Excellent beach, great view. Staff not very helpful - only a few were kind. We had a great vacation because of the people we had along, but will not be back to this resort.

good value !

just returned from our family vacation here at Occidental- the pros- the grounds are beautiful and well kept- pools really beautiful and the " wild" pool is a ways from the family pool ( which is real nice)- the childrens pool was where we spent the majority of our time ( 4 & 6 year old granddaughters)- what a great addition to the resort. - enjoyed the trapeze and the climbing wall/ all of the specialty restaurants were real good- all but the Dominican one -! enjoyed the buffet for breakfast & lunch / the entertainment was exceptional- the Michael Jackson show was incredible. All of the wait staff & bartenders were very nice & accommodating- and the drinks were great ! Now the cons- check in was a nightmare - took app. 45 minutes with no real explanation / the rooms need an upgrade- some of the furniture is in need of repair- shower would go on & off throughout the shower- toilet had to be flushed multiple times to empty - cleaning maids did not speak English so it was impossible to communicate with them. Yet- overall - it still was a good value

Occidental carribe is amazing

We have been to occidental carribe twice now we upgraded to the ocean view room and it was amazing and reasonable. The staff remembered us from 2 years ago-crazy!!!! The weather was amazing the service was outstanding and the saxophone player was still there playing amazing music every night at 8 by the lobby bar. Drinks were great coffee the best! Lots to do. We walked downtown to the market and it was interesting. They really try to get you in their stores but it was still fun and we found some great deals. We will be back!!!!!! The Mexican restaurant is our favorite place (aside from the beach).... picture is view from our room. Room 2305

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.
