1) Book with selloffvacations.com, they had the best price and we paid about half as much as other travellers who were there. We were even premium members with airt ransat, compared to our friends who booked with air canada, paid more and got less. 2) The rooms were large and spacious, but musty smelling, after our first day we didn't...

Why do you read these reviews? TripAdvisor reviews are the best around and you might be shopping for a place to go? Perhaps you've already booked the trip and want to find out more about the vacation spot before you arrive? I know I don't care to read about a person's favorite drink or meal as my taste might really... More

If you like late night entertainment you will love the Disco.....very entertaining. The beach is beautiful, rooms are clean and staff is VERY friendly. The food was not... More

This resort is absolutely amazing and I had a blast. I stayed at this resort from October 11th to October 18th,2008 and it feels like it passed too fast. I have to say that the staff was great. Everyone was super helpful, friendly and very efficient. We made friends with all of them which made our trip even more special.... More

From check-in to check-out, the worst trip I have taken in the past 10 years. The room smelled moldy, the food tasted like the room. The service was by far the worst, even with tips. So we stopped. My husband puctured his foot with a rusty nail on the beach. And I thought the beach was the best part until... More

But that didn't stop us from having a great time. I have to say that, check-in for us was a breeze! it took about maximun 10 minutes. We arrived at... More

My wife and I stayed at the Occidental Grand in January 2008. The weather was beautiful. Don't forget the sunblock. Our flight was delayed which kind of sucked because we didn't get to the resort until around 1:30 am. We flew Air Transat from Toronto. We had the preferred club( I think they changed the name of it). We had... More

Booked a last minute stay at the Occidental Grand Puna Cana Sept 7 -14/08. We found the resort to be almost deserted (probably because of the week we travelled and also hurricane season). The hotel's services were somewhat limited to reflect the number of people staying there. We stayed in one of their "updated" rooms which was actually very nice... More
