We have just returned from holiday at the above. The hotel was fine apart from the following:- The breakfast and lunch buffet was okay, but the food was not hot. There was four restaurants for your evening meal and the Oriental and Italian were very good, but the Caribbean and Mexican were not up to the same standard. In the... More

Simply put, this hotel is NOT worth the money. The food is terrible. As others have mentioned it's the same breakfast for 7 days straight! The only food that was good was the a la carte which you had to book. You would think the food would be delicious in Aruba right? Wrong. The beach is beautiful and the staff... More

We had continental breakfast included in our price (which we paid extra for) we were served once (only once during our stay which was seven nights). Let... More

I just got home from my 5 day stay and can honestly say I will never go back to any Occidental ever again. The whole entire fromt desk staff is rude and unaccomodating. The deluxe ocean view is not what you think. You can only see the ocean out of the sides. The food is horrible and the room keys... More

We had a vacation in Aruba from April 8th to the 15th. We are members of Occidental Vacation Club from 2005 and it was our 11th time in Occidental Grand Aruba, and I believe 4th time in the Royal Club. Aruba for us is the best place to be on vacation - always nice weather, water is very warm. This... More

Steer clear of this resort. I stayed at this resort from April 13 until the 17th. This was my first vacation with my girlfriend and I wanted to impress her with a room with an ocean view. I paid for a room with a "deluxe ocean view". When we got to the hotel we couldn't check in until four and... More

Went with four other couples for a week, if it had only been my wife & I we would have left after the first day. Aruba is beautiful, loved the pool, the ocean and the beach, the weather was terrific every day of our stay. However, don't be fooled by the signs which say you can only get a shady... More

My husband and I have been time share owners/vacationers at the Occidental since 2001. Now we spend all of March in Aruba. Each year the Occidental improves with changes large and small, making our stay a welcome bridge between the harsh NE winter and the glorious Cape Cod spring. Recently, we enjoyed the new menu changes made at the Italian... More
