We stayed at the Grand Flamenco by Occidental for 5 days over New Years 2004/2005. The scenery in Punta Cana was beautiful, with clean beaches, nice white sand, and warm ocean water. The scenery was the best part of the trip. The food in the buffet was plentiful, but not very good and the restaurants had very few options for... More

My wife and I stayed from Dec. 30 04- Jan. 3 05. Firstly, our original accomodations were horrendous. Broken toilet seat, slow drain, terrible odors, hair on the pillowcase and sheets (disgusting). The service at the front desk was even worse...nobody seemed to care. The manager hid behind the staff. I requested an upgrade to the Royal Club and got... More

I really tried to be open minded. As an event planner in NYC this was my only trip to get away from it all. Attention to detail is my lifestyle, but I was ready to overlook some of the things that I had read on this site. I should have listened to you all. I really should have. We arrived... More

Just got back. I was there from Dec. 24 to Dec. 31. The food was the biggest disappointment. I was there with my husband and two college aged kids. We all felt that the food was awful. It was tasteless and greasy. We all had indigestion problems. The rooms were okay.They were old and had a mildew smell. The beach... More

Myself and a friend vacationed here in late October 2004 and I accidentally left a gold ring of high sentimental value on the nightstand. I immediately informed my vacation representative who assured me that the people of the Dominican Rep were honest and caring and would do anything to make sure I went away happy. I didn't know what his... More

My fiancee and I just returned from a one week vacation to the Grand Flamenco Resort. We were there from December 4th to the 11th.

My wife and I stayed here for the seven-day period of December 3rd through December 10th. Having already stayed at another all-inclusive resort (the Bahia Principe Tulum in Mexico), we thought we had a good idea of what to expect and this experience was pretty much on target with a few exceptions. The Bad: The Food - Overall the food... More
