We went here on our honeymoon and it was great! They upgraded our room to the Royal Club room (although we were not eligible for the services that come with Royal Club). The food was average, pretty good for an all-inclusive. We dined more at the specialized restaurants than the buffet for dinner, but all in all, not bad. The... More

We hoped for good service and friendly people,entertainment and good food. I am happy to say we found it all here at the Occidental GrandAruba. The group that provided the entertainment at the...

Better than the 60-person NYC Rocketts! This new show is a blockbuster and, as they say, "worth the trip." Book 2013 now. MarySue was named the new theatrical director 5 months ago and this is a fabulous new show. Totally revamped, redesigned, rechoreographed from prior years, her Christmas show is an extravangaza. The set, lighting, costumes and music selections are... More

We came back from Aruba last week and can't wait to go again. Unbelievably calm waters, beautiful white sand and good food (not sure what everyone is complaining about). We traveled with another family, for a total of 4 adults and 4 kids. All kids under the age of 5 (including two 1 year olds). The hotel was very accomodating... More

I rated it average for the following reasons: 1. My husband has MS and he walks with a cane. There were absolutely no handicap accessible rooms. The shower/tub combo has an 18 inch... More

i've been to many all-inclusives and this one is acceptable. I just don't think there is a real need to stay in an all-inclusive in Aruba. The island is safe and food and drink can be found in many price ranges. We stayed in the Royal Club section and the staff--especially our consierge Veronica was wonderful. I had a rental... More
