Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta Reno's.

Hello :)

We are going to the Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta on Jan 12/13 but just heard that there are reno's going on. We are concerned about the noise and some of the facilities not being ready. Any comments would be appreciated.

Thank you

Maybe someone who was just there can correct me, but I had read that it was closed for over a year for the reno and that it had reopened a few months ago after it was all complete.

Hello,

They were building in the back but we barely knew it was even going on. The inside was totally nice and finished. We loved it there :)

Hi Ted, thank you. Any tips for us? Any problem getting chairs or huts in the mornings? Were you able to book specialty restaurants every night or was there a limit and did you book all of them right away? Entertainment nightly was good or great? We have booked to leave Feb 21 so appreciate the help. Thanks Dave

Hello,

At the time we went there was not a problem getting chairs on the beach. It was busier on the cloudy days which I found strange but maybe because the crowd was older. There is a limit of 2 speciality restaurants. They would rather you try each one but you can book one 2 times if you want. The entertainment was ok. They do put a lot of effort into trying so thats good but its not a 5 star show by far. The nights that people participated in were a lot of fun.

I would recomend a couple of things though. Take a cab rather than the bus to the resort. It was only 20.00 and well worth it. Secondly, ask for a room on the ground floor facing the pool. It was so nice being able to sit outside our room. Thirdly, pick a night that they are having dacing entertainment and go see "Rhythms of the Night' instead. Well worth the 100.00 each person.

Again, the staff and every part of staying there was perfect. The only thing that bothered us was that them wanting you to sit for a 90 min presentation and offered you cheaper tours etc to do so. We DIDNT want any part of it and almost had to be rude to get the point across.
