My family and I traveled to Punta Cana the week of January 3, 2006. We stayed 6 nights at the Grand Flamenco Resort in the Bavaro Beach area. The ride from the Punta Cana airport took about 35 minutes. Once we arrived at the resort, we were pleasantly suprised with the picturesque lobby and lounge area. The resort is truly... More

Stayed Dec 31st to Jan 7th Beach: Wonderful beach, sand is kept very clean, ocean can be moderately rough though for some folks. Food: Disappointed with buffet, food was almost always overcooked and oily. Reminded me of bad school canteen food although desserts were generally good. The a la carte restaurants were good though, I'd recommend all of them but... More

We returned to the Grand Flamenco after staying here once before. Both stays were wonderful. Highlights were great beach and facilities. No significant deficiency, but food could improve. We have two boys aged 8 and 12, and both of us speak non-fluent Spanish. I think that our Spanish speaking abilities definitely helped to make our stay a good one. Hotel... More

Just back from a two-week stay over Christmas and New Years. I went with diminished expectations and a pretty laid-back attitude. The beach was great and the weather almost perfect. That said, I certainly could have chosen a better hotel. Maybe next time I should read the reviews before booking. Did not get a good deal on the room rates,... More

Well what can I say... here is my review of the Grand Flamenco: We stayed there from December 17th - 24th. Arrival: Reception was really fast paced because we had a huge full bus arrive at once.. we were eager to learn that our room was ready upon arrival even though check in was not until 3pm (we got there...

Don't stay here. Find another place where you can enjoy this beutiful beach. To start with the positives: great beach, nice swimming pool, food which was above average for an all-inclusive resort. I agree with the last reviewer that the drinks were terrible. I just drank rum and cokes and gin and tonics, because they cannot be ruined. The main... More

If you are looking for a problem-free vacation, you may want to look elsewhere. I go on all inclusives for the weather and the beach and Punta Cana is top notch on both these fronts, so the inconveniences didn't bother me but here is a list of them for you in case you are thinking about staying at this hotel...

I have recently returned from a week’s stay at the Occidental Grand Flamenco resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic and would like to share my experience. I would like to preface this with saying that my expectations were not set terribly high and that I was simply looking forward to a relaxing time. I had heard good things about Punta... More

A group of us, 12 in all, including my 2 kids, aged 13 and 16, had a great time.(December 16-23,2005). My kids played volleyball, both beach and water, and played a lot of the games that were organized by the staff. I can say my kids never said they were bored, which I was quite pleased with. Anyway heres the... More
