Ok here is what I thought of this place. I was terrified after reading the reviews on here, it was our first time traveling overseas with our 2 and 3 year old girls. Almost all of the complaints are true. I am going to start with the positives. The beach is awesome and there are plenty of chairs. If you... More

My girlfriend and I arrived at the Grand Flamenco on May 7th 2008 at returned May 14th 2008. We had a great time. We stayed in building 13 and our rooms were super clean. The shower was a little old looking and sometimes the water pressure was bad. If everyone is taking a shower at the same time it will... More

We just got back from the Occidental Grand Flamenco Punta Cana, worst hotel and service we have ever experienced. I thought it was a 5 star hotel but the front desk was more than happy to assure me that they have been and never will be a 5 star hotel, that this was a common misconception shared by lots of...

We had a group of four couples on this trip and we each had problems. It started when checking in, the hotel had 'misplaced' one couples reservation and wasn't willing to help them and became very rude even ignoring the couple while they were standing at the front desk. The second day we realized that HALF the food at the... More

The resort is clean and tidy, however a lack of the English language. We went to the buffet and were greeted with hola each morning however absolutely no personal service. They people that worked in the... More

Basic accommodation, large and clean though. Very good value for money, booked an all inclusive package. All restaurants were lovely, with lots of choice and great food. Massive great pool with swim up bar. Good facilities, pool, table tennis, archery, watersports. Good for families with kids and couples.

I travelled 5/29-6/4/08. I read all the reviews and I was a little nervous about this place. I almost changed the hotel. I would rate the hotel as average. Remember you are in a 3rd world country. Room: needed renovation, furniture , bathroom and tv old, the channels were mostly spanish. But the room was clean and we did not... More

Service was terrible, the rooms we booked were not available so they put cots in the room...not what we paid for, but they ended up being more comfortable then the beds. Guys walking around the lobby and beach trying to sell you stuff...more annoying then anything. not very relaxing. Would not recommend this place.
