I am a frequent traveler to the Dominican Republic and The Grand Flamenco was one of the nicer resorts I have stayed at. This was my second time at The Grand Flamenco, and although it is a modest resort, the food is good, the staff is excellent and it is just what you need if you have to travel on... More

Have just returned from the occidental grand flamenco on the 5th september 2006. found the location brillant, only 30 mins from airport. First opinion on arriving looks great. when you get to your room then disapointment hits. Rooms are very shabby. My son got an electric shock off the lamp due to bare wires. we contacted the management but nothing... More

My husband and I stayed at the Occidental Grand Punta Cana for a week in late August 2006. Before we left, I read a number of the reviews on this site and was concerned by a few of the negative comments that people had made, so I had braced myself for the worst. All I have to say in reply... More

when we came in they've had a room already assigned for us. they knew that we have an infant with us and they gave us a room at the main floor, in a "family type" building. away from the show stage and close to the playground area. the food was great. the stews and cooked meals were great. sometimes, 1...

My boyfriend and I arrived in early July 2006. We had a swift trip through the airport which amazed me given the number of people there. The hotel reception desk staff are well manned and we were not kept waiting. My boyfriend can speak Spanish and this does help. This is after all a Spanish speaking country why complain about...

To start the hotel, the pools, and the beach are excellent. I was very unhappy with the food. I took only shorts with me and found out when I got there that I could not go to the restraunts without long pants, only could eat at the buffet. We stayed from monday august 14, 2006 to friday august 18, 2006.... More

We stayed at the Occidental Grand Punta Cana 8/5/06 - 8/12/06. Let's first say that, I read all the negative reviews and decided to be open minded and take a chance. Boy am I sorry. Let's start at the airport. We flew First class on NW6168 into Punta Cana. We filled out all the required papers before arriving at the... More
