I would like to ask whom to believe in all these reviews posted here. In about three months we are going to Grand Occidental in Punta Cana and I have heard about everything about this resort from totally different perspective. From : "it is a great resort, the Palladium next door looks like a two star resort " to "do not go to this resort unless you are planning to end up in the hospital, Palladium next door is a six star resort compared to this one".
Well.... I got scared and even tried to re-book to another resort, BUT all other resorts have mixed reviews. I have been to Puerto Plata Iberostar Costa Dorada, and this was 5* resort, but also had a lot of shorcomings and not the best maintance.
Do all resorts in DR suffer this type of thing? I have been to Mexico twice before and resorts there are really well taken care of (those with 3* and 5* as well).
Any suggestions? Are there any "sure bets" in DR?
