Occidental Caribe - All-Inclusive

We had a bad experience being put on the wrong shuttle by the bellman supervisor. We spoke with the only management available that day and no one really did anything. We basically wasted an entire day be cause we had to reschedule our excursion. AmStar rep Angel was great!!! If it wasn't for him and a few other employees that worked at the resort it would have been our first and last time there. Customer service had failed us and there was no remorse from management.

Occidental Caribe Best in the DR!

One of the best vacations I ever had! The second we arrived at the resort the staff was ready to take good care of us. We had a tropical drink in our hand before we were even checked in. The beach was absolutely gorgeous. We never had to fight for a spot anywhere on the beach nor at the pools. Plenty of room. A special shout out to Luis at the swim up bar. He went out of his way to enhance our experience. Best bartender at the resort! The dining at the Japanese restaurant was outstanding! The food and chef were amazing. The ONLY thing I would avoid is the free shopping trip offered by Amstar transport. They brought us to the most frightening, rundown place I have ever seen. It was truly awful. We will absolutely be booking a trip next year through Cheap Caribbean. They made the whole process so easy and absolutely found us the best deal. Very responsive and extremely helpful. The BEST booking site on the web!

Good deal, great beach

Good deal with Cheap Caribbean. Hotel was not too far from the airport, transfer was easy. Staff were all friendly. Overall food was ok, buffet has something different for everyone, breakfast buffet was the best. The Japanese restaurant was the best dining option for a la carte places. Drinks were good. The beach was beautiful and both pools were big, one had a swim-up bar. Rooms were clean, didn't always have enough towels in the bathroom for the amount of people we had. This is at least the 3rd or 4th time I have booked a trip with Cheap Caribbean. We always have a good experience. Overall, it was a great trip. We would go back to this resort.

Not that great

Upon check-in we were given room keys and towel keys, no map of the resort or explanation of where main things were located. We asked about the internet and told we needed to go to floor 3, we had to pay 45 per device for the week for the internet. I have never been to an all-inclusive where I had to pay extra for the internet. We booked the Superior Ocean Front room, we were to have a mini bar, a complimentary robe and slippers. Our mini bar consisted of 2 bottles of water, 2 beers, 1 sprite, one coke and one diet coke. No Liquor!! Again, I have never been to a resort that stated they had a mini bar but no liquor included. "Mini bar" was to be stocked daily - was not. We did not have the robe or slippers. We had no wash clothes. Some items were not replenished daily (coffee, wash clothes, hand towels, etc) After 3 consecutive days of complaining at reception the restocking became somewhat better but still had some items not given. We finally received one pair of slippers but no robe. This is a very large resort and a map at check-in would have been beneficial (we had to ask for one on day 3). Some of the staff could care less that you were there. Our best bartender/waiter was at the swim up bar - he was the best and always took care of us with a smile! Most mornings during breakfast at the buffet, we had to get our own water, coffee, and juice. Forget about getting a bloody mary or mimosa at breakfast - they don't serve them - like I stated earlier we were lucky to get water. We reserved for the Toyko restaurant one night and the service was horrible. Our orders were taken, however we all received the same thing, we were told they had no ice so another guest went and got us all ice. The only thing I enjoyed at this resort was the beach and the ocean. Will not book this resort again.

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.
