This was a very nice resort and was pretty kid-friendly. The Mexican restaurant was fabulous; the Italian one ok. The buffets were decent. The beach was beautiful but pretty small, and we found it annoying that smoking was allowed on the beach, since it was too small to get away from the smoke. The pools were nice too. The bars...

Rooms comfortable and spacious. Food excellent in buffet and a la carte restaurants of which there are many. Staff mostly very friendly, one or two less than cheerful. Entertainment varied and of a good standard. Pools good but only 4ft deep everywhere (sunbeds easy to get). I had to ask 3 times to get a plug in my sink. WiFi... More

There are some great aspects of the hotel: The jungle location next to Xcaret park and 15 minutes from Playa Del Carmen; wildlife everywhere and the great staff. The food was only ok - particularly the a la carte restaurants. The AI drinks choice was good and measures generous (could have done with a beer choice, the house Corona was... More

Amazing! I would HIGHLY recommend their wedding planner, Luz. She was great! She completely understood everything that I wanted, was quick to get back with me, and made everything happen! The resort is gorgeous and was the perfect backdrop for our wedding and honeymoon. If honeymooning, I would recommend the RC. It was very exclusive, so made for a more... More

The resort is beautiful, you could barely notice the work being done. It was quiet and relaxing. They have limited activities, the food is the same everyday (Hamburger, Hot Dogs, Fish, Fries, Tacos, Pork, Beef, Rice, their specialty dishes.) I'm use to being at a resort that has a lot of LIVE activities throughout the day. Everyday, I would have... More

This was our third visit (5 days) over 8 years and each time it gets better and better. We've been home for only two days and want to post a review as soon as possible. We went with another couple who never have been here and they were blown away by this place, location and staff. When I read the... More

What a wonderful resort for a family holiday. The staff is extremely friendly and the service fantastic. All the restaurants serve good food, lots of shade around the pool and the grounds are well maintained. Lots of nice excursions can be organized from the hotel.

This is the second time we stayed at Occidental Xcaret. Both times we stayed at the Royal Club section with Unlimited Xcaret package. I have to say that this hotel has made incremental service improvements since last year. I will separate a review of the Royal Club and the rest of the hotel - because it truly is a different...

Really enjoyed our stay during the end of June. Traveled with a large group (15 including kids). NO complaints. Even with a large group, meals were not an issue at the buffet restaurant. WE were all able to sit together. Some family members dined at the specialty restaurants and enjoyed it. I personally didn't go to any specialty. Kids loved... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 5-star Occidental Grand Xcaret Resort in Riviera Maya is a perfect combination in a natural setting with preserved cultural landmarks and an all-inclusive resort with a unique array of rooms, services, and state-of-the-art facilities. Choosing among the many possible activities is the most complicated part of a stay at this resort in Playa del Carmen. Swimming with dolphins, attending a Mayan Indian ceremony, enjoying all types of water sports at the beach club or sailing down the beautiful rivers and canals that surround the hotel are just a few highlights. The Xcaret eco-archeological park offers one of the most unique and exciting park, especially for families, by guaranteeing over 40 cultural attractions and expositions on art and traditions in Mexico. However, as people normally say at the hotel: "Do it all...or simply do nothing." Choose from a list of diverse activities such as strolling through the lush gardens at the resort, enjoying the sun while lying on a hammock, or taking a refreshing swim in one of the resort's five pools or private beach. Anti-stress remedies at the resort are endless. Regardless of how you plan each day at the resort, the hotel's choice of culinary selections is designed to satisfy the demands of every kind of guest. With 10 bars, including the one at the club, and 11 restaurants, guests have the freedom to choose a snack, an informal meal, a gourmet feast or a candlelight dinner, among many other options. The key to this resort is balancing between modern facilities and the marvelous Mexican rainforest that is filled with stunning local wildlife. Entertainment, relaxation and nature coexist at the Occidental Grand Xcaret Resort. ... more   less
