I can't actually comment on what the Grand Flamenco in Punta Cana is like because we got bumped from the hotel before we even arrived! We arrived in Punta Cana on December 28th and were told at the airport from the AirTransat representative that we were now going to staying at the Barecelo Caribe because there wasn't room for us...

I have traveled throughout the Caribbean (10 islands). This is a wonderful resort for all. We went with another family of four and all eight had a great time. There are things to do for all ages. This resort is not "Americanized". The rooms are good, the food is warm and good, the entertainment is good, the location was great... More

We spent two weeks at this hotel from 18/11/03-3/12/03. The beach is awsome. the grounds are beautifull, The first room we had was small dark and horrible. The second room was better. The bathrooms in both rooms were terible. They really need upgrading. So do the rooms. The food was not great and I am NOT a picky eater some... More

We are a family of 5 who visited the "resort" from 12/19-12/26/03. We have taken many vacations to all inclusives and this place was the worst. Look at the other reviews. It was unbelievable!! We had a leak in the roof and at times we had no water. Our boys shared a room and had no air conditionong for 1... More

We were there Dec. 27 - Jan 3. 2004. I would have to say that most of the negative comments I have been reading on this site are just nonsense. The resort is impeccable. The food ranges from OK to pretty good, not great, but this is an all inclusive after all -- it's not Ruth's Chris Steak House. You... More

We had booked to stay in the Royal Club but upon arrival were checked into a normal room. We then had the nightmare of trying to explain to the reception staff that they had it wrong which took up nearly all of our first evening and most of the next morning. Luckily I had all my booking receipts with me... More

I went to the occidental grand flanco punta cana on the 18th august and got back on the 1st september and i were very upset to be coming home so soon. We loved the weather even though we had a couple of days of rain which didn't stop us doing the normal things. The breakfast was the best meal as... More

We returned yesterday (12/31/2003) from a six-day vacation at this resort. As you may gather from the title, we did not have a great time. For those short in time, I will describe why not to go to this resort, and if you are intent on going, make sure you read this long treatise as it will prepare you for... More
