Me and my friend booked this vacation with air canada vacations, we stayed at this hotel as it was the cheapest and we were on a budget. Our luggage was lost so that was not a good start to the trip. The air canada rep at the hotel is fairly useless, her only interest was in selling you tours. If... More

We were a party of 14 -- had 6 rooms. All rooms were spacious, neat, and the beds were comfy. 4 of the rooms were fine -- two the air conditioning and fans were not working properly. One was fixed immediately -- the other never got quite right. Two pieces of my party's luggage never made it on the plane.... More

We just came back from 2 week stay in this hotel. Well, not exactly, since we spent both weekends in different resorts - our voluntary decision due to overbooking - to simply experience and compare them. And let me tell you, Occidental tops Bavaro All Suites and Caribe Princess by a long shot. First, downsides of Flamenco. If you need... More

So we got there expecting the very worst. The flight was great and on time.We traveled with air canada vacations because... More

I was just at this resort (July 2007). As many of you have said, the check in process is HORRIBLE!!! My family and I were already tired from our trip. We had woken up at 4 o clock that morning. Our flight was 8 am. Our flight was delayed. We didn't get to Punta Cana till about 1:30pm. We didn't... More

I know I know, I was YOU a week ago sitting in front of the computer searching for the perfect hotel reading all the reviews. And I read about the Occidental Flameco, the reviews were mixed but honestly how horrible could it acutally be? I mean most of the people enjoyed themselves so how could it be that bad. I... More

We read alot of bad reviews and we were very afraid of going there. We had another resort booked, but they had a fire. So we decided to visit this resort. This is our first time away. We were going on this trip to celebrate out 10th anniversary. This wasn't a mistake. This was the best trip we ever had.... More
