My friend and I vacationed at the Occidental, Punta Cana from Nov. 2 – 9, 2012. We had been to the same resort in 2008 so when a last minute deal came up with Air Transat we decided to return.
We had a great time and are already planning a return trip with some more of our girlfriends!
Some of our highlights included Silverio at the pizzeria who was always smiles and made the most delicious pizzas. Nabuk and the animation team who provided countless hours of entertainment and laughs. Different from our last stay, we loved that every night following the show there was entertainment in the lobby – from karaoke to a disco dance party, and of course the Mangu Disco crew. We danced the night away on more than 1 occasion!
We stayed in block 11 which we had requested because we had read that it had been newly renovated. Our room was large with a vaulted ceilings and a huge patio. The room was always clean and our mini fridge always restocked. The air conditioner worked well and kept the room cool during the night when we shut it off.
We ate at the Italian, Oriental and Mexican restaurants which was a nice change from the buffet. The Mexican restaurant was fabulous, especially the fresh salsa and guacamole! The buffet offered a large selection to choose from including lots of fresh vegetables for salads and delicious pineapple and cantaloupe.
The beach was wonderful and the pools refreshing. The grounds around the resort are very well maintained and are gorgeous! In addition, the employees at the hotel were pleasant and friendly and we did not feel harassed by the sales people.
Overall, this resort provided us with everything we were looking for - A clean and safe place to relax and most importantly have fun!
