This was one of of my first trips to an all inclusive hotel and we were looking at something fairly inexpensive. We honestly just wanted to get away. So we found a great deal to the Occidental and were not disappointed.
We have/had always stayed in time share based resorts previous to the Occidental, and always right in Puerto Vallarta, so staying at an all inclusive and being out in Nuevo Vallarta was going to be different for us. We had a great time.
We travelled into PV twice during our trip, once by bus and once by water taxi (the water taxi is definitely an experience). For the rest of our 1 week stay we had no need or desire to leave the resort area in Nuevo Vallarta.
The rooms themselves are nothing overly exciting but we really weren't expecting anything fancy. We really enjoyed the food and convenience of an all inclusive, and every day the main buffet was different as they changed their buffet based on themes.
Its a smaller resort but to be completely honest, thats a huge plus in our books. Everything is close. The pool is close, the restaurant is close, the snack area is close, and so is the ocean. We really couldn't ask for much more.
This was our daughter's first trip to somewhere tropical and she kept telling us that she couldnt believe that this wasnt a dream. Very cute indeed. She had a great time and so did we.
We would have no hesitation in booking our next trip to Nuevo Vallarta with them again (if the price was right)!
