Beware! We arrived and there told with 50 others that the hotel had overbooked "again." Yes, I said again. I'm a cop and investigated further and found that this is standard practice for this hotel. They regularly over book to send you to another hotel usualy a 3 star in Santo Domingo. This is a 4-5 hr bus ride. I... More

I just got back from a week at the Falmenco. After reading the reviews before I left, I was a little afraid of what I had gotten myself into! The flight there was excellent because the plane was only 2/3 full so there was a lot of room. Once there, check-in took awhile, but nothing major. I booked a room... More

I'll start from the beginning, first day got room in building 12, dropped off stuff and down to the beach. Beach is awesome , the nicest beach I've been to yet. Back to room, we find that the power is off. Oh well, took a nap. Wake up couple of hours later, power is still off and it's dark. I... More

We stayed for the week of Jan 29th - Feb. 5th. Not thinking that it would be very busy because we went on an off week, we were surprised to see that it was rammed with people. The place was amazing, especially the beach. For those people that say it's not nice and they had bad service, they are talking... More

Me and my wife just returned from our 2 weeks stay at Occidental Grand. Our stay there was from January 20 to February 3. The hotel grounds are beautiful, rooms are clean and service was very good. The beach is excellent, white sand, the water in the ocean was initially pretty rough, but got calmer later on. Apparently, it's normal... More

We stayed at the Occidental Grand Flamenco for 7 days and nights for our honeymoon. We just returned with nice dark tans/burns. We had beautiful weather the entire time. 36 degrees every day. The only rain lasted under 5 minutes. Our room: Very nice decor made by the maids with our towels and flowers. There were always lots of flowers... More

My husband and I were at the occidental from Jan 25th-Feb 1st, and we really enjoyed it. This was our fourth vacation to the Caribbean in resorts that rated 3 ½ to 5 stars. We paid $1046CAN per person for flights, transfers, hotel, taxes and tourist cards. We did not go with Ritz-Carlton expectations, and were pleasantly surprised with what... More
