Vacationed from Aug 7-11. After reading the many bad reviews we were quite scared and thought we were prepared. We are outgoing people and thought that we could get over a few set backs if we were prepared for them. But after our trip we decided we would never come back to this resort. My husband's stomach is still healing... More

We travelled to the Occ Gran Flamenco on July 31st for one week. Right off the bat, we realized that this hotel has a lot of problems to sort out. We requested an ocean front room with a king size bed as it was our wedding anniversary. We received 2 single beds (broken beds might I add). Also, you have... More

We just came back on August 8 from The Grand Flamenco, the Hotel is nice and clean and the staff is great. The food and the repesentatives at the guess services counter were terrible. We have been to many All-Inclusive hotels in Punta Cana and other countries and honestly I have never seen such a bad food and poor quality... More

The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are spacious and clean. The food was awful, the same taste no matter which restuarant you go to. The entertainment provided was terrible. Need to have more talent. 90% OF THE SONGS WERE SPANISH -HEY ENGLISH SPEATING PEOPLE WERE THE MAJORITY THERE!.

The resort was good and the food wasn't great but it wasn't bad either. I only had one major problem with the resort and that is the guys who work for occidental's vip club. They are very pushy and will constantly harass you to take time out and talk to a salesman even if you tell them you are no... More

I enjoyed every single day at this resort: Nice rooms (no luxory but very OK), awesome pools and gardens, perfect beach and good/very good restaurants, disco outside the area -6am. All sports (except bananaboat/parasailing) included. Only criticism: drinks are not perfect, not enough chairs in the shade (reservation bevore 7 am), safe is $15 a week, drinks in disco are... More

Overall, we had a good vacation in Punta Cana; however, there were a few gripes about the Grand Flamenco. There was constant painting going on on the sidewalks, which gave off a strong smell. The front desk people were not very helpful and it was difficult to get good service in the restaurants and bars (with the exception of the... More

Just returned home on Monday July 26th. We had a great time. The service was good and the food just ok. The pool bar was a lot of fun. We met many people and would definetly love to go back to this resort. The people that worked there were very friendly.

I just got back from the Grand Flemenco and if you are able to get a good price for this resort then you will not be disappointed! The Resort - Beautifully kept with groundskeepers constantly working on its upkeep. The pools are well spreadout around the resort and as a result it feels like a resort and not a hotel... More

Spent a week at the resort in June with my wife and daughter, this was my 3rd time in Punta Cana, was before at Riu Bambu and Melia Caribe, liked both better than this one. Positives of Grant Flamenco: good size: not too big and not too small; landscape almost perfect, very well kept; if you like shopping for souvenirs... More
