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

We arrived at the Occidental after 12 hours of travelling on 1.25.07 to be told the resort was overbooked. We were told we were going to a 5-star resort going back a half hour closer to the airport. The resort was no more then a 2-star and had to stay there for 2 nights. Once we got picked up to... More

I stayed at the Occidental for 6 days and 5 nights during February with my boyfriend and another couple. Do not fear any of the other reviews. We had a great time. The grounds are extrememly clean and our building was only steps away from the beach. Request building 26, as this one was great. For lunch we usually ate... More

We arrived at the Flamenco on the evening of Jan. 25. We were the last of the bus, and last in line. Suddenly, 2 staff members were asking for 5 volunteer couples. It seemed that the hotel was overbooked (not for the first time, either, after reading other reviews). They offered to take us to a 5 star resort for... More

We booked into this hotel at the suggestion of a friend. My husband had just finished radiation therapy and we just wanted to relax. That we did. The beach is heavenly, we really enjoyed it. The food is okay, the buffet is better than the a la carte restaurants. The vacation sales people were at us all the time until... More

This was my second time staying at this hotel and I would stay again in a heart beat. We were assigned to the 13th residence which is closest to the water (without a view) but far from the main dining hall (nice to avoid the night time noise and traffic). We went to the buffet for breakfast lunch and dinner... More
