My family and I spent 7 wonderful nights at the All Inclusive Occidental Grand Aruba. We were fortunate enough to spend our stay as Royal Club Guests. To say the least the service was impeccable. All staff members at the Royal Club are very attentive and accommodated our every needs including a room swap on a different floor so that... More

First time in Aruba. Very nice country. The Hotel?? Ehhh, let's just say it wasn't what we expected. My family and I (15 people) just returned from a 7 day vacation. Check in was kind of messy. Upon arrival at the resort we were not greeted nor directed to private check in where Occidental Members check in. Finally we check... More

I just spent a week at the hotel and thought I would write a review. I read a few reviews before I left and found that many were mixed. I would personally give this resort a 3/5. It is an average all-inclusive resort, nothing special. The staff - the staff are very welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. I especially enjoyed Dale... More

We just came back from a 7 days vacation in Aruba. We stayed at the Occidental Grand Aruba and loved it! We booked an all inclusive in the Royal Club Deluxe (black bracelet) and we had all the extras that comes with it. We had a room on the 9th floor with a great view in tower 1 on the... More

My wife and I spent 4 midAugust days here and very much enjoyed our stay. The rooms are nice, the main building is attractive, the staff were very friendly, and the beach is beautiful (white sand and not a stone or shell to be seen). Not one time were we approached by vendors outside, and the indoor time share people... More

The overall stay was very nice. Standard rooms could use an update. Meals were good. You have to get up early to claim your spot on the beach. Also, what hotel these days don't have wi-fi included? This hotel. If they can improve these areas, the stay would have been great.

Hotel staff is friendly. Food is below average and was a disappointment for the money. Rooms in tower 2 are good and clean but AC is not strong. By the end of the week our clothes felt damp, had to wash EVERYTHING. Bathroom doesn't have a fan. Also, main corridors and elevators don't have AC and become sweat boxes. Property... More

My Husband and I stayed here on our Honeymoon in July 2014. We chose this hotel by looking at the reviews and the pictures/video. The rooms are much smaller than they appear on the pictures and video. The food at the restaurants was good, the buffet was small and not too many choices, but the service was really good. The...
