Had been to better places for the same price in the area (Grand Sunset) Pros: -The grounds are beautifully maintained and are pleasing to the eye. Exploring the resort grounds was very pleasant. -Its right next door to Xcraet which was nice. We really enjoyed that place but regret getting the day pass. We should have bought the multi-day pass... More

We stayed here for two weeks and is one of the better hotels we have stayed at in the Caribbean area. The hotel is Ideally located next to Xcaret park and offers direct access by foot or small boat along the river that leads from the lobby. The park is well worth a visit especially for the underground swimming and... More

We traveled to the Occidental Grand Xcaret Sept. 6-13, 2014. My wife and I went with another couple, and booked the Unlimited Xcaret package. We had a great time. The UXX package was definitely worth the extra expense. The walk over to the park is about 10 minutes. We went over there about 5 times during the week. The nightly... More

I think it is important to first state what type of traveler’s we are, in that we are not super wealthy, we are adults with no children, we go on what we consider a nice vacation once or twice a year. We decided on Occidental because it was all inclusive, it sits in the jungle area, has a beach, offers... More

Not longed returned from spending 14 nights at this resort. This was our first time in Mexico and it was an excellent introduction. Many previous reviews have said it but the grounds of the hotel are set in a jungle environment and there are many wildlife varieties wandering around. The hotel itself is very well maintained and as far as... More

The hotel is HUGE. went for a relaxing quiet vacation and got just that. Went during the first of September 2014. There was not a large crowd of folks there and a quiet pool was easy to find. The food was average - through we did not take the opportunity to visit the specialized retaurants te facility had to offer.... More

We stayed here back in March of 2010 and although there were a few minor annoyances (yes, the timeshare guy, our room not ready for quite sometime on arrival day, obnoxious drunks on occasion, etc...) we had a great time overall. The beach was different than what I expected but it was really nice. We went over to the Xcaret... More

Great Hotel, Loved the food ! :) The beach whilst small is fantastic. The different restaurants are very good. The animation team are great fun. You can either just relax by the pool/beach or get involved in all the activities, it is your choice and whatever you choose you will have a great time.
