The resort provided an all-around, fun time. Our primary purpose to Cozumel (8th trip) was to scuba dive. However, the resort provided an incredible beach, along with pool fun. There was nightly entertainment, for those who could stay up till 9 pm. Caught a couple of the shows and they were excellent. Beautiful grounds! In our first room the air... More

We were placed on the 3rd floor that was exceptionally hot! After spending all day in the sun and then having to carry our baby and stroller up 3 flights of stairs I would like a nice cool room to walk into. Instead, I got a hot room with a broken toilet and a safe that did not work. They... More

This was the first time for us to try an all-inclusive resort, and we did not know what to expect. The reviews of the OGC were mixed, though some of the comments seemed somewhat ignorant. So this we assumed: it's a hotel in the Caribbean, surrounded by water, lush vegetation and mangroves. You'll have bugs, birds and other animals. It'll... More

Just got back from another trip to the Occidental Grand. The staff is still great and many have been there for years. The drinks are still good. The grounds are pretty. The entertainment is better some days than others. The food is not the best but I could find at least something on the buffet that I could eat. We... More

We went on a family vacation for a week to this resort in July of 2014, taking two rooms: one for the parents and one for the teenagers. My reference points are our five all-inclusive trips to resorts across the water in Cancun, all of which were nicer than the Occidental in Cozumel. PROS Pretty grounds, well maintained Jungle-like feel... More

We had an amazing two week vacation with no major issues. The dive shop (pro dive) is awesome with very good staff; especially Javier and Joey "the Italian". Also, check out the live rock show on Wednesday night.

Rene was a wonderful host. A great friend! FANTASTIC beach and food. Rene helped us find the beach and enjoy our time here. Very fun, very exciting. Rene kept us entertained and helped us feel welcome. I would reccomend free wifi for guests.

We have enjoyed every bit of our stay here. The staff is so welcoming and friendly, especially Rene. Rene helped show us around the resort and informed us about some of the activities that the resort offers complimentary. I have enjoyed all the food at every restaurant the resort offers. The only thing that could make this place better is... More

The occidental grand cozumel was a beautiful place to stay! This was our first trip as a couple and we are very glad we came here. The beach at this site is one of the best on the island. You can snorkel right off the beach and the resort provides free equipment. There is a pier right off the beach... More

Everyone is right about the staff going out of their way and being so friendly and nice. But the resort is understaffed except when it comes to the timeshare people, they seem to have plenty of those chasing after you the whole time. The food is not very good even at the two specialty restaurants. We kinda expected mayan food... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Only the Caribbean’s most famous reef system could match the beauty and splendor of the Occidental Grand Cozumel, which is exactly why the two exist side-by-side. Located on Cozumel’s gorgeous San Francisco beach, just above the bottomless blue paradise of the Palancar Reef system, you’ll find an authentic-style state that delivers all the luxuries of a private oceanside hacienda. Gourmet dining, bright and airy rooms, nightly music and entertainment, daily sports and beach activities and an on-site spa and salon make the Occidental grand Cozumel the jewel of any Caribbean experience. ... more   less
