We just came back from Occidental Xcaret. I had read the reviews before we left and I was afraid that I had made a mistake with this vacation spot. Well, I am glad to say that the people that wrote the negative a reviews are full of *****. The hotel is wonderful. The staff are great. The lagoon is nice and relaxing. When you are swimming the are fish all around you ( especially if you bring bread in the water). The people from all around that we met were so nice. The rooms are good, the beds are firm but, we like that.
They asked us about taking a tour of the time sharing and we just let them know we were not interested and they never asked again..
You must make reservations the first night for the restaurants(men need pants) They are not great. The best was the seafood restaurants the worst the Italian. There is always the buffet, which you can wear shorts. You can try many different dishes. If you are coming on vacation because you want a great meal this is not for you.
If you are coming on vacation to relax, drink and spend time with your kids this is the place.More
