This hotel literally made me cry. I wanted to go home so badly. I came here with my family and friends. Altogether it was 8 of us. My parents paid 18k for this trip and it was awful. Let's start with the rooms. The sheets had stains, the shower was clogged, and the mini fridge would shut off randomly, the... More

The wait staff at the Occidental was great. Renato at the Palm Buffet especially, was one of the few good things about this hotel. He went out of his way (his shift was generally the breakfast and lunch shift) to make sure we had a great dining experience. The rest of the resort, however, I do not recommend. I will... More

I have never been so dissatisfied with a hotel on vacation in my life and we are frequent travellers. This hotel was such a let down. We travelled to this hotel for my sisters destination wedding and we were thankful that the reception was not held at the hotel as it would have been ruined. The staff were rude and... More

I love going to Aruba and thought that this trip would be as great as the others. If I subtract the resort portion of my trip, my stay at the Occidental, then it would; however, I cannot erase this from my mind. I sent my travel agent a 'laundry list' of all the incidents that happened. Here are just a... More

This was a great hotel for a honeymoon. From relaxing on the beach to enjoying different types of cuisine each night, this resort offers it all. The service was excellent throughout our stay. In the buffet restaurant our experience was made that much better by the wonderful service of Claudia and Dale. Every morning we were greeted with a smile... More

I recently stayed at the Occidential for a family member's birthday celebration. Unfortunately, the trip and celebration were dampened by theft of clothing and flip flops from the hotel closet. Everyone knows to lock your valuables in the hotel safe (which we did) but being unable to leave clothing in the hotel closet while you are relaxing at the beach... More

Wonderful place to be carefree. Wonderful service with very friendly people. Plenty activities and a great evening Fun Club with great shows. Palm beach beautiful...take a little walk down and you are on Eagle Beach just as beautiful. Took the Safari Jeep tour with Ray and Ivo. If you want the thrill of a lifetime roller coaster ride, it is... More

This was a great place for a honeymoon. We were treated as VIP from the moment we walked in the door. We had upgraded to the Royal club which made our stay fantastic. The food at presentation at the restaurants was unparalleled to anything I have ever seen. The room is always clean promptly the couples massages and dinner on... More

Let me start of by saying this is NOT a five nor four star hotel. The place is clean, service was good and location great. The layout is pretty good for getting around. We paid for a ocean view upgrade so we were fortunate to have a renovated room but nothing spectacular. Breakfast buffet was okay and one could make... More
