Occidental Grand - Just returned last night - Any questions?

We just returned from a great week at Occidental Grand. Glad to answer any questions you may have.

I take it that none of the rooms have balconies ? Or do some of them do ?

How was the food ? The resort was completely built from grounds up recently so I take it that everthing was nice and new ?

Most of the rooms that have balconies are on the ground floor with the even number rooms facing the pool and the ocean. Some of the Royal rooms have balconies as well but only a few. We had room 104 and it was perfect. A one minute walk to everything and the room was brand new as was a lot of the resort. They are adding on again very soon with an adult pool and a theater.

Do all of the rooms have a bathtub as well as a shower? We are looking at going in November and my sister will not have a shower.

The rooms have large showers only - no tubs.

There were no bugs and the weather was in the low 90s every day and some days and nights were humid however the humidity should be lessening soon.

So if there is no theater, is there any entertainment in the evenings?

The theatre is outdoors and they do have some entertainment. Also karaoke Tuesdays and Thursdays in the lounge.

Not familiar with AMA but glad to hear you got a great rate. You will thoroughly enjoy it especially the people working there and even though we were only there for a week, we now have friends forever and have already emailed back and forth after only a few days.
