We enjoyed our stay at The Occidental Grand in Nuevo Vallarta. The sun was hot...food delicious...service good....rooms very clean. There was a family pool and an adult pool. The resort is really quite nice.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th floor it was fine. We don't spend a lot of time in the rooms. These rooms...

Location was terrific. Great beach, large enough for long runs and spread out enough so you can have a spot to yourselves by just by dragging a chair there. Three major pools, one for adults only. Plenty of things to do for everybody-Ping Pong, tennis, beach volleyball, bocce etc. Reasonable cab ride to City of Puerto Vallarta which is great, filled with shops and restaurants with boat trips to a variety of destinations leaving from the main pier in the City.
Service at the property was friendly and efficient. "Daly" at the Concierge desk was especially helpful. Food was plentiful and good. We were a party of eight people ages 25-70 and everyone enjoyed the experience. The kids who were there were having a ball. Would definitely go back.

I went to Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta and I had such an amazing vacation! The staff was excellent and so generous to everyone! Especially the activities staff (Luz and Jorge were awesome!) The food was amazing, the rooms were amazing, and I cannot say anything bad about the resort because I had the best time! I definitely want to go back sometime soon!

Booked again Nov 2013 because the hotel had been refurbished and added two new top floors.. We are now booked for May 2014 this year for one week for my birthday on 7th floor Junior suite.. Everything is 1st class.. Taken directly to 7th for check in.. The room beautiful, ocean views from both bedroom and living room .. Full ocean views from private dinning room and bar. Food excellent. wonderful service from Daniel and Jose, Concierges Jasmine who will make your reservations, boarding passes and any other requests you have all with a smile.. All staff, bellboy, maid service, friendly and do a great job..Beach and sunsets gorgeous. As you see I am looking forward to May.. For my husband and me this is not a TRIP it is really a VACATION.....

Room Tip: If possible stay on 6 or 7 floor.. Worth the money..

After delay after delay and a 1.5 hour wait at the Airport, no water and at least a warm breeze we finally made it to our hotel. Tired and sweaty we are the first to the check in and only to hear they are overbooked BUT we were given a room over at Paradise Village next door and an upgrade for the rest of the week. We were able to pick our hotel room for the next day and totally suggest you get the first floor because they are the only rooms with a small patio and nothing is better then a cold cervasa on your patio after a day of tanning on your beach bed. There are caged tigers at Paradise Village and it was awesome and sad all at the same time. The Occidental was a very nice hotel, clean, good food, but we were able to sample the premium goodies on the 7th floor so that helped as well, though the buffet did offer up some really good food to, great bartenders, silly touristy shows, a disco we had a great time in and a nice beach bar. There is also a lounge bar the older people like to hang out in to. The beach was awesome, plenty of walking to be done and the puffer fish kept ending up on shore. All in all I felt the staff did a great job and our housekeeper Lilia was the best. A very nice lady who wanted to make you happy! Time shares push for sure but you can benefit from that and many vendors on the beach to, so be aware. Thank you all for a great relaxing vacation and for putting up with us to :) From Daniel up on 7th who made an amazing paralyzer to Roberto , our bartender that first night whose manager I just could not convince that bartenders should be allowed to dance with the guests ;) Other resorts have that and that was part of the cultural experience I enjoyed. I would recommend this hotel though.

Room Tip: First Floor with patio

What a wonderful vacation with my Dad! We went March 16-23 and we were greeted with the amazing and friendly staff, gorgeous location with a flawless beach and truly amazing food and beverages.

Upon arriving, we were originally hoping on two double beds considering I was vacationing with my Dad, and the room we had was with a King bed. The front desk did a wonderful job accommodating us and switching this for us as soon as possible which was very nice of them. We couldn't check in until later so they kindly kept our bags so we could enjoy the resort until our check in time.

The food here was AMAZING! I am always very cautious of the foods when I travel and this resort had spectacular food! The breakfast buffet was delicious, especially the make-your-own omelet station and the chorizo. The buffet was awesome for lunch and dinner as well. The snack bar had a variety of tasty lunch options and the restaurants were excellent! Bar Olas was a very fun spot to hang out, great staff and a wide variety of drink options, my favorite being the lime margaritas!

The main pool was very nice, lots of fun activities and music going on throughout the day. The adult pool was a very quiet and relaxing place to be as well. We spent most of our time at the beach and enjoyed our toes in the hot sparkly sand with the sound of waves! Beach vendors were all very nice people. They didn't bother us at all and they were fun to talk to if you chose to engage, if not they would leave you alone.

Evening entertainment was quieter than other places I have stayed but they still had a variety of shows to see and things to do such as dance lessons, karaoke etc.

The grounds are very nicely maintained and very clean! We enjoyed the use of the tennis courts and the gym each morning. The gym is very tiny but does the trick for a wonderful early morning work out!

Overall this resort was amazing! I would definitely return and I would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Rooms on higher floors have a nicer view for sure! Not all rooms have great views but when I go to M...
