We just got back on Saturday from the Occidental Grand in Punta Cana having been there a week and we had an excellent time. The food was great, the rooms were good and the staff were amazing. If you'd like more information, please feel free to email me at calgarykellys@shaw.ca

This was the 2nd all-inclusive we've stayed at in the Carribean (1st was at 5star in Varadero, Cuba). We went with another couple and had an awesome time. We went knowing that the rooms at this resort are outdated, this was peak travel season of the year, and that obviously not all staff will speak english. We booked a premium... More

We stayed at the Occidental Grand (Flamenco) at the end of Dec. 2006 and into the New Year. Overall, we found this a "below average" resort and would not return. Although there wasn't one thing/event that put us off, it was a number of "little things"/annoyances that all added up. Having never booked over the New Year, we were excited... More

My wife and I just returned from two weeks at the Occidental Grand Punta Cana (called Flamenco as well). We stayed from Dec. 17th, 2006 to the 31st. The vacation was simply fantastic. The Beach here is more than I expected with soft white sand stretching for miles in both directions. We swam in the ocean every day, the water... More

It was beautiful and pretty carefree. The restaurants weren't open when we were ready to eat, so we ate at the open buffett restaurant the whole time and it was wonderful. If you left there hungry, it was your own fault! They had like 8 different juices for breakfast, baskets full of pencil-thin, yard-long bread, eggs made to order, local... More

This was our first trip down south, me and my girlfriend. Here's what we thought about the resort: - Extreamly clean (except for pools) - Service good, not great - Food questionable - Awesome beach!! - Beds in poor shape - A-La-Carte restaurants not impressive (except for the Mexican restaurant) - Lots of activities on the resort - Very Friendly...

We stayed at the Occidental Grand Punta Cana (aka Flamenco) from Dec 9th till the 16th. All I can say is the place is more perfect then I have ever expected. I’m also have problems understanding some of the bad reviews for this place. The service is “awful”?? The person who left that review had to be on something, because... More

We stayed at the Occidental Grand Flamenco Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic for a week last March. On the second night, while we were asleep in the bedroom, someone broke into the separate dining area and stole my cellular phone and iPod. The person must have had a key since there was no evidence of a forced entry, raising... More

This was a terrific place. A beach that went on for miles in both directions, very good food and friendly staff members. (an hola was only seconds away!) The room was very clean and daily stocked with two large bottles of water. The approximately one-mile loop around teh resort was perfect for a jog and the spa was more than... More
