We have been wanting to visit Mexico for ever, and were lucky enough to be gifted some money this year. Being wildlife lovers, Occidental Xcaret was perfect for us. We saw so many animals just around the resort, it was fantastic. Food was plentiful and of good quality, some things are the sane each day but there is so much...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights just this past week. I had read reviews and have actually been to this resort before but it was many years ago. I will break it down by each category: CHECK IN: Check in was supposed to be 3:00 p.m. We got to the resort at 2:30 and tried and they...

Just returned from a 10 day holiday, everything about the place was impressive, room, grounds, staff, food, all excellent. We visited all specialty restaurants, can't fault the service or the food. The buffet was very good at all meal times in all the restaurants plenty of choice so did not get bored. The regular visits by the animals to our...

The food, for the first time EVER was HORRIBLE!! Also--mosquitoes were bad every night. The bed could use replacing as we had to put a large pillow between us to avoid slamming into each other. We love, love, love this venue, but something MAJOR has changed with the food prep. We left most entrees nearly untouched. Salad, soup and dessert...

We enjoyed this hotel, although there were issues with the air conditioning and remodeling noise. We were able to easily come and go to Xcaret, which we enjoyed immensely. The food quantity & quality were excellent.

Brilliant and unique place. Both relaxing and exciting with all of the places to explore and animals to see. Food and service are great and the beach inlet is absolutely perfect for kids! We would all love to visit the resort again

Loved the place, it is so beautiful and there are so many parrots and monkeys and different animals around, you really feel like you are in a jungle-which you are. Flowers everywhere and so clean and well kept. We took the royal service which was so well worth it. We had our own restaurant right on the ocean, our own...

What more can I say but the staff, rooms, food, beach, pools, wilderness and jungle theme resort and entertainment were GREAT! If you are looking for something different from the normal beach theme resort this is it. Far enough from Cancun so not a tourist trap but a pleasant, relaxing setting for vacation.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The 5-star Occidental at Xcaret Destination in Riviera Maya is a perfect combination in a natural setting with preserved cultural landmarks and an all-inclusive resort with a unique array of rooms, services, and state-of-the-art facilities. Choosing among the many possible activities is the most complicated part of a stay at this resort in Playa del Carmen. Swimming with dolphins, attending a Mayan Indian ceremony, enjoying all types of water sports at the beach club or sailing down the beautiful rivers and canals that surround the hotel are just a few highlights. The Xcaret eco-archeological park offers one of the most unique and exciting park, especially for families, by guaranteeing over 40 cultural attractions and expositions on art and traditions in Mexico. However, as people normally say at the hotel: "Do it all...or simply do nothing." Choose from a list of diverse activities such as strolling through the lush gardens at the resort, enjoying the sun while lying on a hammock, or taking a refreshing swim in one of the resort's five pools or private beach. Anti-stress remedies at the resort are endless. Regardless of how you plan each day at the resort, the hotel's choice of culinary selections is designed to satisfy the demands of every kind of guest. With 10 bars, including the one at the club, and 11 restaurants, guests have the freedom to choose a snack, an informal meal, a gourmet feast or a candlelight dinner, among many other options. The key to this resort is balancing between modern facilities and the marvelous Mexican rainforest that is filled with stunning local wildlife. Entertainment, relaxation and nature coexist at the Occidental at Xcaret Destination. ... more   less
