just got back today from 6 nights of aruba and the occidental. There was so much talk about how the water at palm beach was dirty. It had me worrying or months.I have been to many different islands and palm beach aruba in front of the occidental was the clearst water i have ever been in. It was crystal clear. You can see fish and your feet from yards out. I really don't understand where people are coming from with there neg posts. Occidental was great the food was good. The rooms were gorgeous, great food,top shelf alcohol, nice pool even though i was at the beach all day. The downtown area was nice and clean. There were many good restaurants to choose from also. We still live for the all inclusive because we are in our 20's, enjoy to drink had all our meals included like breakfast lunch and dinners but you still have the option to go out and get a nice dinner or two. It's nice to be on vacation and not have to worry about expense. So I think that's about it. If you have any questions just reply.
