We booked into this hotel at the suggestion of a friend. My husband had just finished radiation therapy and we just wanted to relax. That we did. The beach is heavenly, we really enjoyed it. The food is okay, the buffet is better than the a la carte restaurants. The vacation sales people were at us all the time until... More

This was my second time staying at this hotel and I would stay again in a heart beat. We were assigned to the 13th residence which is closest to the water (without a view) but far from the main dining hall (nice to avoid the night time noise and traffic). We went to the buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner... More

My wife and I stayed at the Occidental Grand Flamenco in Punta Cana from the 10th of february till the 17th 2007. It was only a 20 minute drive from the airport. We have both traveled to Mexico and Cuba and thought the Domincian Republic was amazing with regards to the beaches and peaceful atmosphere. The resort was well kept... More

Jan 24-31, 2007 We booked this vacation through Itravel2000 at a cost of $1600 per person. This was a Transat Premium package, and we were also lucky to get a free upgrade to Club Class on the flight to the DR. Thanks Evelyn! Man, that is a pretty sweet way to travel. Free drinks, real food, beautiful snacks. Arrival/Check In:... More

My husband and I stayed at the Occidental for two weeks, January 18 to February 1/07. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would do it again. I went there with the understanding that this is a third world country with developing infrastucture. People I speak to that were in Punta Cana as recent as nine years ago report constant power...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this resort in November of 2005. The experience was fantastic. We arrived at night and discovered that I had forgot my booking number at home, so I had no proof that we were to stay at this resort. However the staff gave us a room anyway as long as the next day we got... More

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
