The hotel is nice. The see shore is perfect for children. The food is well cooked, especially if you have the royal club. The cheff on the 9 th flour is a magician. The staff is very very friendly and helpful. They can reserve a restaurant in the town, recomend what to visit and fix any problem. They make averything... More

Friendliness of the staff. Pool, hallways and bathrooms could use a little TLC Great location! Close to other hotels, shopping and restaurants! We started our stay at the Occidental in an unusual way. The hotel that we were originally booked at closed unexpectedly and we were rebooked at the Occidental on the day of check-in, without having any prior information... More

After hearing so many wonderful things about Aruba, I was disappointed that my first trip there wasn't the best. We arrived on 7/22/14 just to learn that the hotel was overbooked and we were sent to the RIU. If i wanted to stay at the RIU I would have booked the RIU. On 7/25/14, they had a room for us... More

I thought the Occidental was a good experience. I have never stayed at an all-inclusive resort before, so it is tough to compare, but overall the pluses were: - lovely location - lovely beach front, amazing beach and water, nice bar on the beach, a lot of sun loungers and what not - nice pool area - the staff is...

Nice resort, needs a change in their activities at the resort not that many different ones going on, usually the same stuff, Not much for kids to do. food was pretty good, could use more of a change with the buffets, did find a bug in our drink at the oriental restaurant on site, just an apology from the waitress....

Seriously, I can't for the life of me understand all the negativity for this hotel. Our fifth visit is booked for December in the Royal Club. There isn't a doubt in my mind that we will have another outstanding vacation. We have made many friends over the years and have always been treated "royally." Your vacation is what you make... More

We have had 5 glorious vacations here, love the staff, the beach and the atmosphere! Upgrade to the Royal Club worth every penny! Feels like home, close to the beach, great swim up bar, great shopping across the street, safe with ample security, best bartenders in the Caribbean .

First time in Aruba, we were surprised at how clean the whole island is and how friendly people generally are. Palm Beach is absolutely the best - cannot say more other than simply to "ENJOY"!The hotel definitely has two sides, the regular rooms are well maintained and are of a good standard but the time share suites (non-Vacation Club rooms)...

My travel agent recommended the Occidental Grand Aruba with the "all included " program. We... More

This vacation was booked by my daughter.Overall I had a wonderful time. However, upon arrival, the pregnant desk clerk was talking so fast we could hardly understand her! She was so busy telling us to give up our credit card for (damages) to hotel property! Well of course I'd never heard of such a request. The down side is no... More
