Never have we befriended so many wonderful staff members during a stay at any hotel. We experienced a very long day prior to arriving and the front desk staff were so friendly and empathetic. Quianna, Stacy and Gino are wonderful employees that made us feel welcomed and valued. The resort and island are wonderful but they made the stay that... More

After a poor experience at the RIU, my husband and I booked a room at the Occidental (for our honeymoon). Right when we got in, the staff treated us well and made the check in process as seamless as possible. The hotel is beautiful and offers so many fun activities such as bingo, volleyball, "crazy game", snorkeling, rafts for the... More

Never disappointed at the Occidental! We go every year because of the staff. They can't do enough for you! They are kind, courteous and considerate. They recently upgraded one tower and are working on the other. Other areas are also updated or in the process of being updated. We ate at the Italian Restaurant, the Hibachi, the Buffett and the...

I was here for a conference, and found the hotel clean and comfortable. There are several restaurants on the property, and they are very good. The staff members were helpful and flexible, even when I requested a room change after the first night. My stay was much improved by how readily that was accomplished. I worked with two especially great... More

We stayed on the Royal Club level and it was well worth it. The service was A++. The dining staff especially was extremely attentive. George, Edgard Jose and Cezar were friendly, welcoming and hospitable. I recommend this upgrade highly.
