This was our first vacation in 15 years, and though it definitely wasn't an above average resort, we did enjoy our stay. The rooms were outdated but clean. The air conditioning and water worked, and the bed was very confortable. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful, and the site is clean and well kept. (The staff can always be... More

Ok here goes. First a little about my wife and me. We're pretty laid back and understand what the islands are about. That's why we go. We've been to Antigua 5 times, Mexico 2,Barbados,St. Lucia etc, etc. We don't go for the room but rather the water beaches and local people to meet and learn about them. My wife and... More

We were aprehensive about the the bad reviews that have been posted, and were very pleasantly surprised once we got there as we loved the place. (I note with interest that most of the negative reviews came from Americans and the English - are Canadians just more forgiving, or less tight...ed?) So, don't be concerned by what others say -...

We arrived at the occidental grand and were very impressed from the start. i had read some negative reviews on this website and were a bit nervous but we have no idea what they were complaining about. The resort was great, the room large, the air conditioning leaked a bit ,however we ran it 24/7 so no problem. The food... More

We stayed at the Occidental Grand Flamenco in Punta Cana for 7 days and got back March 4, 2007. We were a little afraid of what we would find at this hotel, because of all the comments we read on this website. We have been really satisfied about the site in general and found it really nice. Yes this is... More

Wow, what more can I say. Our stay was the best. We booked the Premium Club package and received that and more. The rooms were wonderful and cozy. The beds were very comfortable and the bath robs and slippers made you feel like you didn't leave home. The beach and the water were to die for!!! The most beautiful that... More

Our 10 days was great. We've travelled a lot around the the world and this ranks right up there. The beach was beautiful, the help was friendly-not a lot of English but not a problem (Europeans frequent the island more than Americans), we loved the buffet-nice assortment that changed daily with a different protein as well. We tried a few... More

I must say I went with a little dout because of some of the reviews I read, so when I arrived I was looking for things to happen. To my delight everything went very well. Of coures there were things I could have picked on, but nothing is going to be 100% perfect. The hotel is beautiful, clean, the grounds... More

5 girls from Canada went there in January of 2007. On the way to the hotel I thought I was going to die by the way they drove. Scary. They did not stop at stop signs or anything but whatever we made it alive. When we arrived we were greeted with a glass of wine which was fantastic after a... More
