I have to say this hotel is a 3.5/5 stars. Like everyone else stated they are in need of a lot of repairs and sometimes the maids don't come to clean your room or replace towels. It didn't bother me as much as my friend. We were out most of the day anyway. The drinks are not all that like... More

Let me start by saying this: this is far from a luxury resort. However, that doesn't mean you won't have a good time. The resort is pretty big and it can be confusing to locate your building-especially in the dead of night (a couple of drinks in you and its worse). It does need some renovations. Our rooms were actually... More

Room: Very spacious (note I am from Europe, so not used to that). I only used the balcony for drying towels and bathing togs. Several English speaking TV channels to watch in the evening.

We never saw the Occidental Grand as that facility was allegedly undergoing extensive repairs. We were transferred to the Barcelo Grand Palace allegedly a five star resort. The facility was average to good but not a "five star" as claimed. Nothing major but far too many minor things to be a five star. At tops it is a four star... More
