My wife and myself stayed there for 5 nights for our honeymoon. I would rate the hotel higher for its ambience and lush green location. There are 3 to 4 al carte restaurants but with average food. The food is better at the Oriental and The Buffet restaurant. We have enjoyed our stay but also noticed the staff is commercially focused in getting you sign up for their First club. The excursion trips and the car rental is very expensive within the resort. I will highly recommend that if you can drive then do hire a car from the fifth avenue and drive around Playa del Carmen. It's very straightforward route and hard to get lost. Overall great experience and helpful, approachable staff. I will recommend Occidental to anyone. More>

Wonderful resort with beautiful tropical jungle feel!

We traveled to the Occidental Grand Xcaret in March 2016 and had a wonderful time. We got engaged on the second night so it will always be a memorable vacation for my husband-to-be and I. There are also many other reasons why this is an amazing resort! I'll start out with the check-in, we were in the First Club so we had a private check-in and it went quickly and staff at the First Club Lounge were great. We then went to our room and it was amazing! We had two bathrooms which made getting ready in the evenings a breeze. The bed was really comfy and the room was always super clean! Suzanna was our maid/cleaning lady and she did a great job every day. We made sure to tip her to show our appreciation for her hard work. The resort grounds are beautiful with a jungle feel and lots of wildlife to see. Xcaret Park is right next door and you can walk over, but we didn't make the time to go this trip. The beach is definitely not the greatest because it's a man-made inlet, but we still spent every day there because we love the ocean and you can see fish swimming. The hotel offers snorkeling equipment where the beach buffet is at the entrance. There were always tons of chairs available and it was very relaxing. The beach bar service is quite slow, but if you're relaxed, it's not a big deal. They also have servers coming around to take your drink order if you don't feel like getting up. There are many restaurants to choose from and we definitely tried as many as we could during our stay. One thing I will warn other guests of is that they have a dress code in the restaurants and will refuse entry if men aren't wearing pants. We were refused on the night we got engaged and my fiance was quite upset because it was supposed to the best night ever. The staff had nothing to say other than it's policy and wouldn't budge so we went to the buffet. The staff warned the buffet staff that we were upset about being refused at the restaurant so they made sure to give us extra special service at the buffet. Our server, Enrique, was so sweet and took special care of us. He brought us a bottle of champagne and chatted with us. Thank you Enrique for making our evening much better! We tried the steakhouse and had great service there from Jesus, the portions were a bit smaller so make sure to fill up a bit at the salad bar they offer. We also went to La Hacienda twice because we love the service and food so much! Our first server, (I forget his name because it's a bit longer) was so great and put huge sombreros on us for fun pictures. We also went to the asian restaurant which was delicious. Our server was great and Tanya, who was the maitre d, came to chat with us as well. Every day at lunch, we went to the beach buffet (which was also the seafood restaurant in the evening) and received the best service from Otilio! He is so amazing at his job and goes above and beyond to make you feel special! He even helped us with our Spanish after we told him we were practicing. In the evenings, the shows are really great and the disco was always fun. Javier is the best disco bartender and also works in the sports bar. We often ended up at Paco's Tacos to have some drinks and chat with people and our friend Rigoberto always made sure to take care of us! He is so positive and upbeat and has a stellar memory! Fantastico! We can't wait to come back to this resort and the staff and service are really what stand out! We are booking a vacation fro September 2016 at this same resort because we loved it so much! More>

I cannot say enough good things about this resort! The food...the service...the facilities...everything was fantastic! While all the staff were excellent, Julio on the cleaning staff and Fabian from the snack shack were superior! Xcaret Park was also a real treat and not to be missed! Take a cab ride into Playa del Carmen too...La Quinta Avenida was such a treat! I'LL BE BACK!! More>

Great Time

Grand Xcarat is one big beautiful place. Grand Xcarat Park is also one big beautiful place. Everything was great from the service, to the room, to the food and best of all the drinks. We had a wonderful time and will definetly return. Especially like to recognize Miquel, Miquel, and Humberto from the beach bar great guys and great service. All the waiters and hostess were great too sorry I can't remember all the names. Bertha are housekeeper was also great. More>
