There was mold in the bathroom, in the shower stall and on the walls. The windows had condensation on them all the time. The curtains leading out to our patio had black mold dots... More

My husband and I stayed at the Occidental Grand for our honeymoon. It was everything we wanted and more! We had the Grand Concierge/Desire Honeymoon package. We were welcomed to the hotel with champagne and a bottle of wine in our room. The concierge who we worked with most of our trip, Hazel, was so fantastic! She helped us with... More

While in Aruba on a cruise decided to purchase a day pass at the resort since we didn't leave Aruba until 11 pm. Unlimited Food and drinks were very good and was able to use all the other amenities at the resort. Very nice staff.

We have stayed at other Occidental locations and this one was great. The rooms were comfortable and well maintained. The views were fantastic. The food was the best we have had.

Clean with a friendly staff. I found playing Bingo a good place to stay cool and get out of the afternoon sun; although I never won. There were lots of slot machines and there were only a few guests playing, making it easy to get the machine of your choice. The resort's restaurants are first class with eager to please... More

Never had a phone and didn't have waiters bring us drinks on the beach or pool which all inclusive hotels do..Did like the pool,food and tour and the swim up bar..Liked that they had enough towels and floats for you too. Did like the shopping across the street..Great walking on the beach..We missed the beach party do to our plane... More

The casino is small but they have bingo daily at 2pm when some of the locals come to play. We didn't win at bingo but my wife managed to find a slot machine that paid for our excursions.
