Second time at this resort. We upgraded to the Royal level. The food especially the dinners were gourmet. Amazing food and lots of choices. The bartender, Ricardo, was passionate about his job and made the best cocktails. The alcohol was international brands. Excellent red wine. Service was the best. Captain David and Raphael did their best to ensure excellent service!...

The room was good, good reading lights, but no balcony. Bed was very firm and comfortable. Food at the buffet was good. Recommend the Japanese grill...

Returned to the Occidental after staying there in January of 2016. I had no worries about staying there again (March 19-26) as it was great in 2016, beach is awesome, food was excellent no matter where you ate. We upgraded to Royal Club again and was pleased with the upgrade. The 7th floor restaurant was excellent every time and the...

THE GOODS: Excellent rooms. Modern and renovated. And the room was always clean on time! Good pool area with lots of tanning chairs as well as at the beach area. Lovely personal everywhere. I would highlight Roberto Laguna at Los Olivos restaurant and Ricardo at the Mexican restaurant. The ladies at the beach area always ready to bring your drinks!....
