Fun, Relaxing Vacation
We enjoyed 2 great weeks at Occidental. We go to scuba dive but also enjoy the beautiful grounds, nice room and good food available at Occidental. It is nice to swim in the pool and enjoy a good meal and a comfortable bed after a day of diving. The Occidental staff is helpful and friendly. The Mexican Show and Fire Show were entertaining. The Pro Dive staff was professional and fun and we enjoyed 35 dives each! We saw lots of amazing creatures and fish underwater. The combination of the resort and dive shop made for a perfect vacation.
Great experience! Will return.
This property is a great value. The rooms were spacious and very, very clean. We visited during May 2019, so the occupancy wasn't high, therefore beach lounges under shade were always available. The beach was exceptional. The food was reasonably good. I never have high expectations of buffet / all inclusive situations, but this was better than most. The coconut soft serve ice cream was incredible and the beach front restaurant was a great place to eat after our morning dive. We would especially like to thank two individuals...Gabriela Gaetta and Eduardo Martinez. They worked at the front desk. These individuals are very courteous and professional. You could tell that they were genuinely interested in the satisfaction of their guests and they handled any problems that may have arisen. Gracias a Gabriella y Eduardo. The grounds were immaculate. The entire week that we were there, I did not see one piece of paper or cigarette butt laying around. It was incredible. We will return!
Poor service and poor food quality (if you could get it)
Service and food quality was not good. Staff seem unhappy (not helpful). Often out stock of food and beverage choices. Food was mostly Pre-Processed nothing special. I have stayed here many times but the service and quality has declined significantly.
Something for EVERYONE!
We took our family (4 of us - 2 Adults 2 kids 2 & 4) to Occidental to get married. This is my 4th time to Cozumel. With that being said..... Pros: It truly has something for everyone! There is a kid zone and kid care (we used the kid zone and our kids had a hay day!!! It's a really cool spot cool toys and a kid pool! We didn't use the kid care however). But there is also an adult only pool so if you wanted to go that route you totally could! LOTS of amenities!!!! The grounds are BEAUTIFUL and well kept, nightly entertainment, friendly staff and the beach is STUNNING!!!!!! There are plenty of lounge chairs and even some shade if you want. The sand is beautiful and you can actually swim in the ocean at this resort! There are no rocks or coral in the way. (If you are getting married there it's even better!!! Nadia was a SAINT! She handled EVERYTHING!! It was beautiful and stress free! She was amazing and made the day extra special!) Cons: The food was just ok for me (but my folks LOVED it so take my opinion with a grain of salt). A lot of the amenities were extra so it added up quickly......I wish I would have known first is all. I would rather have the option and be charged than not have the option at all so it's not a totally bad thing. All in all we loved it! We highly recommend it and will definitely be back!
Experience at the Oriental
General It was a good experience except there was an infant park missing so we had to change to another room after we did our check in which was not really convenient for our family but at least we finaly got everything we need
