We were at the Grand Flamenco from 2/25-3/4 and found most of the bad comments to be either false or written by people that would complain anyway. Is this resort a 5 star?-- No but it is a 3-3.5 star and our room (bldg#11 right by the pool) was clean. there are things to complain about but thats not why... More

We spent Feb16-Mar 2 at the Grand Flamenco after having our plans changed due to illness in the Riu chain. We were pleased with the switch. Another reviewer was also in Bldg 11 and complained of mould and smell in the room. We experienced none of that. Our room was cleaned daily, usually before 1pm. Our only complaint about the... More

Hey.. We just got back from the Occidental Flamenco resort in Puerto Plata. We stayed there from Feb. 25th to March 5th. The place is not bad but could be better. We're occidental members and we decided to go there cuz we had never went but I don't think we'll be going back there. Compared to other Occidental or Allegro... More

It is a super clean resort.....whoever is posting stuff about the resort not being clean have no idea what they're talking about. The maids are cleaning the hotels all the time and they have people constantly sweeping, cleaning the pools and beaches. There... More

Date February 26th 2005 We had a pleasant stay at the Occidental, everything was kept very clean and the staff takes pride in their work. I was told their was some updating of the rooms, but feel they could use a little TLC. Remember the saying "No Problem" while traveling, while we might expect things to be done right away,... More

I just returned from the Occidental Grand Flamenco Beach Hotel in Puerto Plata. If you want the best they have to offer, book the Royal Club for sure. It is worth the extra $$$$, you have your own bar, restaurant and pool, small but relaxing. You dont have to get up early for your chairs and also have a seperate... More
