All Inclusive    

The all-inclusive Occidental Punta Cana sits on Bavaro Beach, the best stretch of white sand in Punta Cana. Known for lush coconut groves and the dazzling Caribbean Sea, there's no better destination in the Dominican Republic. The open areas are spacious, with two enormous, lake-sized pools featuring isles of tropical foliage. This resort is ideal for families, couples, and newlyweds seeking to combine rest and relaxation with fun and entertainment.

Dining venues are plentiful with 10 restaurants (both a la carte and buffets) offering an array of sumptuous choices and themes. You'll notice details in decor pertaining to each restaurant's ethnic inspiration. Another unique feature is an upper-esplanade of open-air kiosks with tacos and ice cream, snacks, and samplings of Brazilian meats. A large terrace with tables and chairs overlooks the entire resort.

Enjoy unlimited beverages in seven bars, and non-stop activities around the resort. Tennis, water and land aerobics, volleyball, water polo, a scuba clinic, and non-motorized watersports are available. Lounge at the three pools and swim-up bar while kids are busy at the Kids' Club (ages 4-12).

Upgrade to the Royal Club for more exclusive room accommodations and VIP services.

TripAdvisor Traveller Reviews
Make sure they cook the food
Kyle E,

The resort has been nice and the staff very friendly. Recently switching from fresh lamb to pork in the lunch buffet brought some problems, along with a language barrier. Diarrhea, guts have been in rough shape. The pork I ate yesterday was pink in the center thought it might have been smoked and ok, trying to ask the cook about it was useless with the language barrier. Just hope I can get out of this room somtime soon. Watch out for the beach as well, we weren't warned bout sand fleas apparently they have many names. There jumping biting blood suckers, all the weeds on the beach is there habitat so the pools apear to be fine, not everyone is affected my wife hasn't been bit. You can mainly avoid the little creatures going out after the sun is up and leaving before it sets.

Great service!

The staff service was exceptional! The main pool was being repaired during my stay so that was the only downside to my stay. The hotel had two other pools open during my stay! It was great too have some resturants the was open over night after coming in from the club at 4 am!

Check in was a nightmare as we waited for over an hour as the hotel was packed. Lovely marble floors, friendly staff, little shop inside (pricey for essentials). Most staff spoke English. Food was amazing from the buffet to the restaurants although the restaurant service was a little slow but the food was good, especially Oriental and Italian. Seafood restaurant had the worst service because they were understaffed but we loved the food. Make sure you wear long trousers or jeans if you are a man or you'll get turned away. Rooms were really large and clean with daily maid service, very large bed, free huge bottle of Dominican rum and beers and soft drinks in the mini bar. Towels changed every 2 days, very close to tropical beach. This is one of the best hotels for friendliness and cleanliness. Do your excursions via the beach guys as you can haggle and save a fortune! Take US dollars if you can. Swim up pool was annoying as you had to cover your drink to avoid getting the waterfall in it! Above pool snack bar had lovely chicken, hot dogs and drinks. Fresh local fruit and produce cooked to perfection every meal. Look out for Hector on the beach, he wont give you the hard sell, but he works very hard and speaks very good English. Some of the beach guys will hound you. I recommend the boogies excursion as it's the best one we did! Try to tip if you can because these guys earn peanuts! The whole experience was phenomenal and we (2 adults and 4 kids) would definitely come back!
