This hotel and accommodations are less than pleasant. Our group of 22 people arrived and at first glance was somewhat pleased. Very quickly we found out that the buffets were the same old thing day after day, the restaurants only had specific times for seating's (and staff wasn't helpful making arrangements), rooms and bathrooms needed serious repair, more than three...

My Wife and I travelled with her Parents - both over 75, via Air Transat, using their Transat Distinction - Preference Club Packages. Having booked online we did not talk with any travel reps, but did read alot of reviews. (probably reason I am writting this is because I read so many negative ones) Our trip was excellent - stayed...

We traveled w/ Transat Preference club and they took care of everything! When we arrived the desk gave us the tickets for our prebooked a la carte restaurants, which we could alter by speaking with our Transat Rep. We didn't use all of ours as the buffet was always fresh with an excellent selection. There were dishes from several different...

After experiencing this wonderful resort last year, I couldn't wait until I had a chance to go again. Finally, in December, I got to return to the Occidental. I honestly cannot understand why this place gets such bad reviews It is the gringos that complain when they are not fawned over 24 hours a day. This place is gorgeous and...

First off, I would like to say that a lot of the bad reviews on here are total crap. I will be easier on the people who actually have something to complain about, such as the room flooding and ruining their things or being sent to a room thats already occupied. But for those who love to find the tiniest,...

My husband and I didn't have much money to spend on our honeymoon, so we found this resort on cheapcaribbean.com. It listed all these fun free activities and had beautiful pictures of the place, so we went with it. It also listed that we could get the honeymoon package simply by requesting it. That was a LIE! Nowhere did it...

We had a great vacation! The resort and pool were clean and our room was nice - the bed was comfy and our balcony had a nice view. The beach is incredibly beautiful - the sand is soft and white and cleaned daily. There are activities daily and lots to keep you busy, even if you don't go on any...

We went there Jan 14th to 29th via Transat Holiday. We stayed in the Transat preference section and found it to be fine. Our first room was smelly, however they moved us without question to another room and it was fine. The Transat Reps were very, very nice and very knowledgable. All staff on site were polite and very friendly....
