We very much enjoyed our experience at Occidental. It has been newly renovated, and while not quite as posh as the Occidental at Punta Cana, it was very nice. The main restaurant had very good food, while the "reservation only" restaurants were wonderful. We went as a part of their vacation club at the Royal level, and the service was beyond amazing!! I felt the excursions offered at the hotel were a bit over priced, but had no trouble at all scheduling with off resort companies. There is a bus stop immediately in front of the hotel, and taxis always waiting. We especially enjoyed the bar on the beach and the outdoor HUGE hot tub (it gets chilly there at night!!) The entertainers were very good, unfortunately crowd participation wasn't, so they had to work very hard. We felt all the staff worked very hard to accommodate our every want. Remember this is the pacific...the water is cold!! but on a hot day, it feels divine! Boogie boarding, and windsurfing were the best! And free rental from the resort. And here is a shout out to Chef Jordy in the Royal dining room!! He was SIMPLY the BEST!!
We loved the volleyball, and took long beach walks every day. Occidental is next door to the hotel that has tigers, so we got to go see them. We also participated in a baby turtle release further down the beach! Awesome!!
