We traveled for many years and this was one of the better islands we have visited for families of all ages. The Occidental Inclusive met every need for every age and was very accommodating to everyone in our party. From the Bartenders, to the food, to the rooms and the staff, the location was a perfect walk to any and... More

I have travelled the Caribbean quite a bit and would not visit Aruba or stay at another Occidental hotel again. Hotel was maybe a 3 star and food just mediocre. They push time sharing and are treated better than the all inclusive client. We had to change rooms three times and I got sick from the food which has never... More

We spent a week at the Occidental Grand Aruba in January 2015. We paid more and had a great very large suite. Bathroom was enormous. Very large bedroom with a TV. Very large living room and dining room with another TV. Maid service was excellent. Concierge desk was very welcoming. We were never bothered by timeshare salespeople. The restaurants which... More

We booked this hotel by looking at where SW airlines flew and Trip Advisor. In the past, we have stayed at an all inclusive resort in Cancun and was not impressed. With the strong reviews from Trip Advisor, we decided to take a chance. The staff, hotel rooms, food, entertainment, beach, pool, bars, bar tenders and drinks were fantastic. At... More

Chose to visit for a day with a day pass (traveling on cruise ship). We could stay from 8 am - 6 pm. We had both breakfast and lunch at the resort. Enjoyed the pool and beautiful beach area. We did not see the guest rooms.

I was a little concern when I was reading some of the negative reviews for this Resort. I read that the staff and most of the people working in the resort were rude. I found this to be quite the opposite. We found everyone to be very friendly and helpful. Sometimes a smile goes a long way. I read that... More

She had a welcome cocktail party, a rehearsal dinner, and the beach ceremony with a poolside reception. Each event was well planned and perfect. The decorations were gorgeous! The... More
