All Inclusive    

A spectacular resort, set on a dazzling beach, the all-inclusive Occidental Caribe boasts 798 rooms with red Spanish-styled rooftops. The lobby, in warm tangerine hues, invites you to linger, with comfy seating under a chandelier, which amusingly also happens to house a birds nest! Sprawled parallel with the beach, this spacious hotel curves around gardens and features two large pools that are perfect for a refreshing dip.

Boredom is not an option at this adventurer's paradise! Fly through the air on a trapeze at the circus school, or test your strength and endurance on the rock-climbing wall. Then, gaze down at the spectacular ocean-view from the top. Children's programs are also available and include a playground, game room, pool, and more.

Entice your palate at one of seven specialty restaurants and after supper, don't forget to try your luck at the casino or take in one of the dynamic live shows in the forum-style theater. Before topping the evening off at the nightclub, stop by one of the late night bars for a nightcap. Finally, head off to your luxurious room to rest up for the next day's adventure.

Once you've had a good night's rest, why not start your day off in the gorgeous, fully-equipped spa? Enjoy relaxing in the hot tub, pampering yourself in the beauty salon, or melting away stress in one of many massage rooms.

Second stay

Great place to come and enjoy a nice vacation. This was my second time here and enjoyed it. Staff at the front and in the restaurants and bars were all so nice. The only issue I had was that the beach water was a bit cold and had very strong waves but no algae thank god. I met a lot of nice people from all over the world. I am looking forward to my third stay hopefully in January 2019.

This resort was worth what we paid for it, but if you expect exceptional service and cleanliness and not feeling like you have to tip everyone at the resort, it was great! I would have expected more if I would’ve paid more. Our room had a great view. The beach and grounds were beautiful, although they could’ve used a little more magnets. All in all, I would come here again.

The resort is on an amazing beach. The value for the money is excellent. The food is very good. Really nice for the price. Pool is awesome and redone this year. Casino is small and many machines aren’t working. The girls if you win remind you they should get some. Including the cashier

Good value for your buck

Overall we had very good experience, the staff is very pleasant, friendly & helpful. The food is average. The grounds are nice but the rooms need upgrading they are dated. All in all i recommend it for a family vacation.

Guest Service and food quality TERRIBLE!

I have never stayed at a hotel where everyday something went wrong. I hate writing a bad review but this place was a huge let down. The buffet was terrible I feel like I just ate bread, rice and French fries all week because there really wasn’t anything that good. Staff interaction was very minimal. A lot of the staff didn’t speak English. Staff was mostly just standing around talking to each other rather than saying hello and interacting with the guests. Every time we went to the buffet there was barely any clean tables. The room wasn’t really that clean. Very noisy room facing the front of the hotel. Heard music from the lobby all night. I was there for a wedding. I would never return. The beach and view was beautiful but the staff and food doesn’t measure up unfortunately. You can only make reservations for the restaurants between 7am-3pm and they booked up quickly.
