Just got back from 6 days at the Occidental, and overall, very happy. I was scared after reading the reviews, but our stay was good. The biggest thing is that there are ALOT of smokers, and they don't have non-smoking rooms. Everybody smokes outside & it is hard to avoid. Check in went well, they moved our room for us... More

I surprised my fiance with a trip to this resort in May. The flight itinerary was horrible, but it was worth it for this resort! The beach was AMAZING with gorgeous white sand and turquoise water! I loved going out on the water in the free kayaks. There was always tons of beach chairs available, even with the hotel booked... More

I just returned from my trip at Occidental and after reading the reviews my boyfriend and i thought we had made a terrible choice. However, our check in went smoothly and upon entering our room we noticed it was very spacious. After a whole weeks' stay we were able to figure out the good, the bad and the ugly. THE... More

All 3 pools were closed with caution tape surrounding them due to being filled with filthy, dirty water! Our room was dirty with mold and dried blood stains on the bathroom wall. The tub was...

I was reading other people's reviews a week before we left and it totally freaked me out! I almost didn't want to even go! Once you get to your resort, you should be satisfied. It is very helpful if you speak spanish. We do not, so it was a little frustrating, but that's totally our fault for being ignorant. Everyone... More
