This was my first time to Mexico, so I didn't have much to compare with. I went with my sister for a girls get-away, and found the Occidental Grande to be perfect for us. There is some wear and tear on the hotel, as is expected with a beachfront hotel that is likely full most of the year. But the staff were amazingly friendly and very patient with our limited Spanish. They are all fluent in English, but seemed tickled that we'd at least attempt to speak their language. The food was ok in the Mexican restaraunt and the buffet. The fancier restaraunt on the top floor was empty the whole night, so we were confused about why they made such a big deal about having a reseravation. But the service was excellent and we enjoyed the yummy food while looking out over the ocean as the sunset. As an added bonus, just a short walk down the beach and you can watch baby sea turtles being released each afternoon. There are alot of vendors walking around, but they weren't pushy. We relaxed a majority of the time on the beach, but there were plenty of programs and outings offered for people who want more excitement. The programs at night were fun as well. My sister even won the "Miss Occidental" pageant one night. Fun memories!
