Beach? What Beach? There Bay (beach) has a beautiful view yet extremely small. Do not be fooled by photos. You are charged for WiFi. Drinks are not strong and low quality liquor. Everything is a extra charge not really all inclusive. There are not many restaurant options you must have reservations which book fast. The buffet food is ok. I would recommend staying here for a quick, trip. However the rooms are nice especially the terrace, friendly staff, beautiful pool, great entertainment at night.

My family and I come to Cancun (or Playa de Carmen) every other year for our family vacation (14 of us) and we like to stay somewhere different each time. This time, we chose Occidental Costa Cancun. I’m not sure how it got 4 out of 5 stars on Trip Advisor but I’m very disappointed. This is probably the least favorite hotels of the last 10 years we’ve been coming. The hotel is average. It’s a very small hotel although the pictures on their webpage shows a rather large resort. They have one pool, a very small private beach, 3 restaurants that required reservations and one main buffet that always has a 15-25 minute wait. If you want to eat in the restaurant you must get up at at 7am and make reservations at the concierge desk. Our rooms are just ok. Old, dusty and some mildew from being in hot, humid Cancun weather. When we first got into our room, our door knob fell off. Yup, had engineer come up within 5 mins being in the room! The towels are dirty, the water pressure is low (a drop or two) and takes twice as long to shower. The hotel is next to the pirate ships and docks and you can hear them until 2am! And the beach water has scum (oil) on top layer from the boats and jet skis being so close. The entertainment is next to the pool and is always an hour long. One night it was karaoke night. Only 5 ppl could sign up bc they didn’t want to go pass 10pm. A few of my family members were disappointed they couldn’t participate. Also, other resorts have waiters serving drinks when you’re on the beach or at the pool but not this place, you have to go to the bar if you want a drink. And.....don’t bring your beach towels back with sand on them bc they will get very upset with you. There are so many resorts to chose from when coming to Cancun, I would suggest picking another place.

Fabulous vacation on a low budget

You go on trips to be taken care short 'Pampered'. I recently went to Occidental Costa Cancun for 8 nights and I was really happy with my choice. I am usually very picky about who I appreciate, but these guys deserve the appreciation. Entertainment Team- a big shout to the entertainment team- Daniel, Joan, Carlos, Fernanda, Brandon, and Serena- these guys were phenomenal. There was something going on the whole day, lots of games and events. The 9pm show every night was awesome, especially- Oriental, Mexican, Michael Jackson, and Magic show. From my side, this team gets a 5 star. Food- The Albatros and Mexican restaurants were my favorites. Special shout out for the following people who went the extra mile to make me and my family happy. Our Waiter William Martin took really good care of my family. Always had a smile and did everything make my family happy. Other folks who deserve to be mentioned- Hostess-Daisy, Capitan-Juan and Elias, Chef-Alberto Tuyub made sure we left happy every day. Pool area wait staff was awesome. Always made sure you had your favorite cocktails when enjoying your time in the water. Special callout- Deidy, her smile and pleasant attitude always made my day Accommodation- The rooms can get a little updated, especially the showers. I wasn't so excited about the rooms. Beach- One thing I disliked about the place was the condition of the beach and the kind of things happening at the beach. Some folks started acting up really vulgar at the beach and the security wouldn't do anything about it. I wish they had more control since this is a family resort, things in an out should be completely under management's control. This is the reason why I gave it four stars because my kids could never forget what they saw at the beach All in all, it was a fun vacation

Good experience for family time. Reservation restaurants really bad service, food took too long and waiters were not friendly. Drinks were okay, front desk and lobby provides a great service. Expedia on site was great.
