We stayed at the occidental June 17-24. Everyone wears wrist bands and the other couple we went with has a timeshare with Allegro resorts. This was there first time going to this resort as ours and we were considered memebers (VIP) with black wristbands. How disappointing, our treatment was bad. We requested king beds for each rooms and we both... More

After reading the review of the people form Nova Scotia being robbed, I had to respond. I had already written a review of our incident back in march of this year but so many people give reviews that it was not on the top reviews for long. We were also robbed, however it was out of our locked safe. Long... More

I give this hotel a 3 1/2 star. The staff really didnt care about you. At one point I saw one of the bell staff spitting in the sink in the lobby washroom. They missed my wake up call and didn't apologize. I was also told I could not have a meal at the a la carte restaurant because they... More

Here I go submitting my annual review of my vacation spot. I find these reviews so helpful, so I feel I should also give back- but this time, unfortunately it's a negative review. Luckily this is all subjective so one person's hell is another's paradise! My boyfriend and I are in our 30's (and maybe getting pickier!!) and didn't find... More

We just recently got back from this resort. To start off when we arrived , it took the front desk an hour to check us in. The rooms are ok, nothing special. Beach is nice. Resort overall was ok. The food and drinks were nothing great. The service is very slow and the front desk people are very unprofessional and... More

The landscape and pool is great. The beach is very nice. Here are a few things to note: - the rating of 4 or 4.5 (depending on the travel company) is causing high expectation. This should be re-classified as 3 or 3.5 -- mainly because of the rooms and service. - I mentioned service because when it becomes busy, service... More
