Two friends and I took our daughter’s for spring break. It was a great trip. The resort was very well maintained and the staff was very friendly and always willing to help with anything we needed and super fun. The beach sunsets were beautiful. There is always something to do. We did pay a little more for the concierges level and it was worth it. It made scheduling diner reservations and excursions easy. We spent a day seeing Cozumel with a taxi driver - Alberto. He was WONDERFUL! The resort lined him up for us and it was the best money we spent for the entire week. He knew all the right places to go based on what we wanted to do. Suggestions if you go. Take an insulated cup- drinks melt fast in the heat. Have plenty of small bills to tip the staff.

This was an exceptional place to bring a group of 20 students diving for a week. There was diving every day and plenty of activities to fill up our down time. We felt very secure on the compound. A good time was had by all!

We stayed at the Occidental in early March and upgraded to Royal Level. The check in at Royal level is wonderful. No standing in lines, to our rooms quick. The rooms are very spacious, bathrooms large, had a setting area which the only negative part was the couch was very musty smelling probably from wet clothes, the smell was bad enough where you didn't want to sit on it. The fridge was always stocked with water, pop, and beer. Buffet were good decent variety, but felt like cafeteria. If you are expecting to see the ocean you wont from your room, you walk to the beach, which is very nice. The servers on the beach were wonderful but do tip them, they work hard. Never had a drink that was the made the same but they were still good. Personally I didn't care for the jungle surroundings, but wanted to try someplace new. Resort is nice. All of the staff were wonderful, friendly.

This resort was great for families with staff that is proactive to get your kids engaged and some time away for you. Comfortable and we loved the natural setting of lush gardens. You can get a variety of meals and spend time at the pool while listening to the ocean waves. The staff was very friendly and gracious.

We just arrived back from the Occidental. After many years staying at the Hotel Cozumel, we made a switch due to our feeling that the Hotel Cozumel had fallen into disrepair. We very much enjoyed our stay at the Occidental. The room was very comfortable and the A/C worked perfectly. While all meals in any all-inclusive are never the best, the Occidental's food was quite good. The buffet was well stocked and the food had good taste. My wife is a vegetarian and always has trouble finding enough to eat and this was the same at the Occidental (although much better than other all inclusives). Besides the buffet, we did eat at the Mexican and Italian restaurants. Both were very nice and the food quality was very good. We did not try the seafood restaurant because they did not offer a vegetarian option. The staff was very nice, although at times it was tough to get anything to drink at the buffet tables. At times the wait staff appeared to ignore tables. And, what do they have against spoons? They are at a premium. Many times, for cereal, soup, yogurt, you're forced to eat them with a fork. Why not set each setting with a spoon? The check in and check out process were very convenient. We very much enjoyed having an adult only pool and not have to deal with the noise at the family pool. We would definitely stay at the Occidental again.
