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.

It was enjoyable, but it was not up to our expectations of cleanliness for an all inclusive hotel. We expected the bedsheets and bathroom to not have stains and the front desk button on the room phone did not work.

ABSOLUTE DISGUST

i will be posting to as many people as possible to never go to this hotel. the most incompetent staff ive ever seen. my family was forced to have to leave after 2 days. Not 1 positive comment can be made. My travel agent is filling a formal complaint and requesting a refund. stay away if you can.

Only if you don't care much for sleep

We stayed there for 9 days. It was the loudest hotel I have ever been to as it is built such that all rooms face one open corridor of all floors. So if one drunk person is yelling on the first floor, all the rooms on every floor of that building will hear it and it echoes. Couldn't sleep much at all during our stay. All nights it sounded like we were trying to sleep in a public pool. We asked to be moved to another building after 3 nights, which they did. The other building was better as it was further from the entertainment area but was still very loud as it was no ones job to make sure people don't yell and party in the corridors. Service at the restaurants and bars wasn't great. Felt like we were a burden to the staff. Guests were always kept waiting until staff had time from what ever they were doing at the time. Many couldn't understand English so we had to order beer instead of other drinks as it was the only one they understood at the restaurants. I would only suggest this place if you want to drink and eat a lot, stay up at nights and sleep on the beach during the day. Beach was very close and there were a lot of chairs which is the only thing we really liked. Food quality was quite good too.

Not worth the money...

Honestly, spend the extra money at a better hotel. This hotel has dirty rooms, we had to ask to get our room cleaned daily, ask for towels and water daily, food was not good except at the French Restaurant. Not impressed bit was very happy with the pool area and water sports offered. A ton of underage drinking going on at night.....

My stay was good. My wife and I really enjoyed the resort besides having to pay for wi-fi. I have traveled the world and have never had to pay for basic wi-fi. We were out of the country and had to pay for wi-fi. Totally unacceptable.
