The words All Inclusive is misleading at this hotel.
You will be up charged for any steak, lobster or shrimp dishes, ranging from $11 to $20 per meal.
The tower rooms were designed into a two bedroom studio with a separate kitchen, (three rooms).
If you book a room, you will get one of the three rooms described above.
The couple we traveled with ended up with the kitchen room with pull out Murffy bed.
They had to change to one of the two bed rooms of the studio.
The food was good in the one dining room, the second dining room was an outdoor pizza oven, which we never saw in operation.
The hotel is about two miles from the shopping area, we had a rent car so had no problem.
No shuttle service from airport, taxi is expensive, $10 per person.
We got a rent car for $100 cash per week, but were required to visit Occidental Grand for a sales pitch, where they stamped our rent car receipt.
We still had a nice time, but probably won't return.
The snorkeling was wonderful.
