5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The rooms were spacious, they had 5 different restaurants to choose from, the staff and the grounds were so clean and friendly. The water was super warm and crystal clear, the Hyatt next door has a casino and across the street was a mall and Senior Frogs and Hard Rock. Great Place - Can't wait to go back.

I surprised my daughter who went to celebrate her birthday. We had a great time and they reserved me room right next to hers which was adjoining. Everthing was great. Wish they had more than one beer choice, Amber Bright would be good.

This is my second stay at this all inclusive resort. It is located on one of the best beach areas in Aruba. The sand is very white and not hot to walk on. The water is warm and calm. You can walk in a good distance and still be standing. Many beach activities available for a fee. Guest rooms are... More

We stayed at the Occidental for a week to celebrate our Mom's 80th birthday. Aruba held a special place in her heart due to She and our Dad travelling there often to their time share in the low rise area of the island. Her last visit was about 25 years ago. I had some concerns about this resort due to... More

I stayed with my family here and it was really nice. The rooms are clean, not very luxurious but it was perfect for a relaxing time. The food was ok, the swimming pool is great and the beach area is just perfect. White sand, crystal water and accesible to the main restaurants and malls. I will definitely come back
