Only thing missing was the Apple "amenities" with room.

Hard to beat!!
Mar 07 2018
We have been coming to this Resort since 2006. There have been a lot of changes over the years but they have all good and make us rave about our vacation and bring us back year after year. Most important is the WONDERFUL staff . We feel like family when we return every year. They all work so hard and provide Top notch service with a huge smile. Some of the staff has been there 22 years. That speaks volumes. There are so many repeat vacationers we have met over the years which makes it fun returning every year. But most important is the wonderful staff that makes this place our home away from home.

This was one of the best Apple Vacations I have ever booked. The only problem we had was with the Local company. They said they were to busy at the Riu hotel to help us with any trips or information.

We would probably not come back to the resort without the upgrade. Although we like the small size of it.

Not completely happy
Feb 25 2017
Did not like the two beds they pushed together to make one. Maid service to clean room was too late in the day - not until 4 -4:30 pm

Following the shade.

No thatched umbrellas on the beach, as advertised. We were constantly moving our chairs following the shade. Won't be back.

Best Beach - Amazing Vacation
VictoriaDetillieux, Saskatchewan, Canada

This was our second trip to the Occidental and loved it even more! It’s not a huge party place and we appreciate that. Pros: - You get ocean views almost no matter where you are. Everything is so close to the beach. - BEST section of beach probably in all of PV area. The beach area has many palm trees on it which most others do not. - The food is fantastic. If you love Mexican food then you’ll appreciate it. The flavours and cook on their meats is impressive. If you’re only wanting the basic American food then you’ll probably be disappointed although they do serve burgers/ hotdogs at lunch. Overall, great variety. - The staff is so friendly. Anabel, Carlos, Yesenia ( from breakfast) and so many others, thank you for your kindness! - Very clean and beautiful grounds. Older but has character and feels very tropical. Cons: - The walls are thin. Unfortunately you can hear everything from the hall and the rooms beside you. We had loud neighbors BUT let the front desk know and they moved us to another room. Thank you! Excited to return and definitely would say the Occidental has the best value in terms of price and location in Nuevo.

Best Holiday!
Thu Dec 06 10:55:23 EST 2018
This is by far, one of the best, if not the best holiday ever! From the minute we arrived, to the minute we left, it was paradise. The room was great and the housekeeping excellent. The grounds were beautifully kept and the scenery was breathtaking. The staff went out of their way to make everything enjoyable. Especially Fabiola from the lobby bar. Always checking to see that everything was good and if you needed anything. Such a sweetheart! The food was fabulous and we ate at all three a la carts. All were very good and enjoyable. The only problem we encountered is that we only got to stay one week! We would definitely return to this beautiful resort!

Nice place

This hotel is amazing, The food is fantastic and the service is incredible. Every room has ocean views, the hotel is clean, everything works, and the staff are the best. We just returned from two weeks at this hotel as first club members. Not a single complaint and this is our second visit to this hotel and both trips were incredible. The buffet staff, most notable were Erik and Abram, within one day of serving us they remembered our breakfast beverages and had them waiting for us before we even sat at our table. They were pleasant, entertaining and we enjoyed the personal service they provided by paying special attention to our choices and remembering what we liked and disliked. Esmeralda Rolon, the hostess was fantastic, she took the time to entertain my wife and sister by giving them Spanish lessons every time we entered the buffet, she is amazing. First club members lounge, Juan is incredible and made our time in the lounge so enjoyable. The members pool was the highlight of our trip, Julio Larios and Agustin Loeza are the best. they made out trip so special with their entertaining ways, their personal service and incredible personalities. Our trip was so memorable due to these two men. If you want to experience an amazing time join these two at the members pool and you will not be disappointed. I can not thank them enough for all they did for us to make our trip so special. Overall, this hotel is the best we have experienced with our membership and it is our new home away from home.

Just got home from spending two weeks in this amazing hotel. We are first club members and had a fantastic time. Our experience was so great largely due to the fantastic service and entertainment of Julio Larios and Agustin Loeza at the Members pool. Without those two fantastic Service experts our stay would not have been as special; so a huge thank you to them for making our two weeks extra special.
