Occidental Grand in late July

We are 65 and 56 years old. We have been to the Pacific coast of Mexico 7 times but never in the summer. We would like to try the Occidental Grand being a smallish resort in an area we like. We have previously stayed at the RDC, Samba, Friendly and Decameron Los Cocos. We are mainly interested in a good pool, swimmable ocean beach and a friendly relaxed atmosphere.

We are a bit worried about weather (too hot and humid and storms). Any thoughts?

Yes it will be very hot and very humid. The rain usually comes in the very late afternoon and/or in the evening. Most rains are not the all day or night things. You will still have plenty of sun during the day. The late rain showers will actually be welcome as they provide a brief relief from the humidity.

Stayed at the Occidental many years ago (before the remodel). Nice long stretch of smooth flat beach and a big pool. We walked past it a few times along the beach since the remodel and it looks even better than we remembered.

July may have lots of kids as the Occidental is a family resort. Didn't see a lot when we walked bywe travel in May.
