Occidental is fairly close to El Cortecito where you will find some shops, restos and bars.

Yes you are close by. Have a look at the resort page/map. You will see other resorts in the area. There are other resorts that could be good depending on what you are looking for. Stayed at Occidental a few years back and enjoyed it.

They are both fairly close to the El Cortecito area. It's not really a town but an area of small shops and bars/ restaurants. Vista Sol is closer. Be ready to haggle

right outside the gates of the Occidental, a 5 minute walk is Plaza Bavaro and Plaza Punta Cana which is home to Steve's Corner Bar... you'll also find other shops, bars, eateries etc... not sure if that's what you're looking for

Steve's bar is across the street from the entrance the beach is great for walking at least a good one or two hour walk in either direction with lots of shops to stop at. Any resort along that stretch of beach would be good.We stay at the Occidental and love it, if you go there upgrade to First or Royal Club.

Please be aware that the Occidental is known to be recommended for young partying singles / groups on a budget so could be very rowdy if your looking for a quiet get away

Sunscape or the Palladium resort may be better options and are better located for the El Cortecito area :)
