Beautiful Resort

My boyfriend and I stayed 5 nights at Occidental. The staff was very friendly, the resort was clean, food and drinks were delicious. I was disappointed we were given a room with 2 double beds instead of one king bed, as we requested. Overall, it was a great vacation and we will be returning. I wish someone had told us to get to the restaurants right at 6 when they open to avoid an hour plus wait. We wasted our first two nights waiting for a table and having dinner until after 10:30pm. Other than that, there’s nothing I can complain about!

very disappointed with food

Was there on December of 2017. Got into resort by 2PM, Checking in was easy and fast. Room was clean and roomy. Resort was very nice, very tropical and staffs were friendly. Beach was very nice to my taste. Lots of fishes to swim with. Food at the BUFFET restaurants were bad, very bad. They were always short staff at the restaurants. few time i walked over to get my own drinks as well. Resort it self was beautiful and when i went to eat at the restaurants i was like, WOW, what a shame. you see, i like to eat and for me food is very important to me. so, I will not be going back to this resort for that reason only.

Better than home.

We went on this trip with 3 couples for a nice getaway. It is a beautiful resort set next to Xcaret park and it embraces that environment. Beautufiul scenery-a stroll through the resort we saw wild deer, iguanas, coatis, and playful monkeys. There are ruins on the property too. We went in January-understanding that the weather would be fair, not hot and it was a moderate 76-80 the entire time, beautiful. I wish the pool water was freezing, but understand that's beyond control of the resort, the ocean water was warmer-which surprised me. The pool also appears to be never ending but the bridges have walls and piping under them so you are unable to travel the distance of the connecting pools withough climbing out and back in on the other side-a bit weird. The Occidental at XCaret was busy but not packed-plenty of room to spread out and relax-however the pool area had a lot more shade than sun for areas to sit. They have one hot tub for an upcharge or their First Club members, it was not a large one but one similar to a personal use -it was on the beach but not accessible to us, that was a bummer in January. Food was mediocre in the breakfast/lunch buffet areas-same things every day. The "themed" restaurants we went to were Steak, Italian/Mediterranean, and Mexican, the food there was good. The staff were fantastic and very accommodating. Found it strange at check in we were only given and allowed one room key per couple-that became an issue a time or two. The rooms were basic but would be tight for family of more than 3, unfortunately our temperature control did not work real great-but with the outside temperatures where they were in January it was not uncomfortable. The evening entertainment was fun. Overall it was nice!

Better than home. Better than home.

Great place to stay

The resort was wonderful! My husband and I had an amazing time and were always treated well by the staff. Even during the busiest of times they were very supportive and attentive. You don't need to tip though when you enjoy the service it is always nice to! The beaches were amazing! You could see the crystal clear water and there is snorkeling right off one of the beaches, beware that if it is windy then you may not be able to snorkel due to the tide. The specialty restaurants (which you can go to once per day for dinner) were absolutely amazing. The buffets for lunch and breakfast were okay, not outstanding food but still a good meal to have. There were a ton of bars to go to and even though there are a lot of rooms and people we never felt overcrowded. The staff spoke both english and spanish so if you don't know spanish that is okay though it really does help to brush up on some of the language. Lastly we added on an excursion to Chichen Itza and it was amazing. I would recommend for all that you do some type of excursion to see more than just the resort!

What's to Love

Aahmazing pic opp - this tropical paradise has lots of wildlife: monkeys, flamingos and iguanas.

The beach is on a calm, serene lagoon - ideal for swimming, especially if you've got young kiddos.

The pools will be your dream spot for lounging the day away. The swim-up bar will be your fav.

Hands down - top-notch service from this friendly staff at the resort.

 

What We'd Change

Occidental at Xcaret is nearly an hour from the Cancun airport, but the private cove beach and meandering river that flows under cobblestone paths and stone bridges are worth it.

 

Why You Should Go

Located next to Xcaret Park, it's a gorgeous, natural sanctuary loaded with activities.

So much to do throughout the resort - mini golf, ping pong, tennis, archery, shuffle board & more.

Awesome resort if you're with the fam. The kids nor you will be bored.

Book a Royal level room - exclusive restaurant, concierge, private pool, VIP check-in/out.
