    “Delightful and easy vacation.”

    Our room was large and well laid out (the huge, peek through shower was fun). The resort is small and easy to move around in, and has a variety of shady/sunny areas to lounge in. The buffet has enough choices to satisfy most, and is very good. The beach is long, clean, and beautiful...one of the many reasons I returned to this resort after my first trip in 2011. Being able to take a quick trip to PV or Bucerias (200 pesos more or less) is a nice benefit, if you like to leave the resort area for a few hours. We did a food tour in PV with Vallarta Food Tours and it was wonderful. By far, the outstanding feature of this resort is the beautiful, kind and friendly staff. This resort has this quality hands down. The added restaurants are okay...the Italian being the best IMHO. I believe the new Japanese restaurant needs some work. Paid room internet service was hit and miss, though it was strong when it was working. I would recommend this small, excellent resort to anyone.

    “This Resort is Amazing!!”

    This resort should be a 5 star! Just got back from the Occidental Nuevo Vallarta 2 days ago and I have nothing but great things to say!! Travelled with my Mom and this was our first time in Mexico. We absolutely loved this relaxing resort. The amenities of the hotel are great. The grounds are kept pristine and spotless and the rooms, lobby, and lounge are clean and modern. The pool is a nice size and there are always beach chairs available. One thing I loved was that you can see the ocean/beach from the pool. Throughout our stay we noticed that they are doing small renovations here and there to further improve the resort. The beach is beautiful!!! You can walk along it for as long as you want and the scenery is breathtaking - hilly mountains on either side! The sand is gold and the beach itself is kept clean. The only downside is that you can't swim in the water. Every day it was red-flagged or yellow-flagged because the waves were so rough. You wont find calm, turquoise water here but that didn't bother us at all. The sunsets are gorgeous. The service is top-notch, with servers and bar staff going above and beyond to make sure that you are having a perfect time. Special thanks to ERIK for being such an attentive and friendly waiter during breakfast and lunch at the buffet. He made our visit even more memorable! The entertainment team was phenomenal! They kept guests involved with dance lessons, water aerobics, yoga, Spanish lessons, etc. We had one rainy day during our stay but we weren't bored because the team kept activities going on indoors. JOHNATHON (Johnny Be Good) was the best! He was extremely entertaining, had great energy and always kept us laughing. The food was great! The buffet has lots of selection to suit everyone's tastes. We went to all 3 a la carte restaurants and we liked them all. As other people have said, the Italian one is nothing too special, but the Japanese restaurant was awesome! The Mexican one is also nice, especially since it is right on the beach. For our first time in Mexico, we had such a great time and would love to go back. You won't be disappointed if you choose this resort!

    “so much better than 3 yrs ago.”

    We vowed three years ago to never return to Occidental PV. We even bought a Vidanta Grand Luxxe membership and have stayed there instead. But this year we chanced it. Wonderful! Last time we stayed in the penthouse with tattered curtains and dingy furniture; the Royal Club food was only ok, and the restaurants and buffet were substandard. Only the usual excellent service was what we would expect. Now, the remodeled studio we booked in the first club was OUTSTANDING. Beautiful. The food was much improved. Service with many of our same favorite people was even better. THANK YOU Barcelo for bringing back this beautiful resort in a beautiful setting.

    “A well oiled machine......”

    Let me start by saying we are Occidental timeshare owners…….we visited this resort back in 2012. There are MANY changes to the hotel. Occidental has sunk a lot of money into it. The pool bar / pool / Mexican restaurant area is all concrete. Very luxe looking. I liked it. Our room was in the first club because of our ownership. It was perfect…….maid service was spot on. The buffet and the a la carte restaurants have vastly improved. Everything on the buffet is well thought out and kept at proper temperature. The Oriental restaurant was an adventure of a meal which was totally enjoyable. The Italian was typical and average. The Mexican restaurant was absolutely lovely and delicious. This was my favorite for many reasons. The manager and all the staff were truly tripping over each other to make it a wonderful meal. The Italian……not so much. My better half enjoyed many seafood meals at The Mexican. Although the food is important, I can’t stress the way we were treated. The manager hustles and so does his staff. Pedro, Ricardo, Marces, Rodrigo and Fernando made my vacation. As vacation club owners we are able to make all reservations in the First Club. It was made VERY CLEAR to us by Raul……that our membership was not First Club Level. Let me tell you, we have been timeshare members for 15 years……..but that didn’t matter to him. He quickly outlined where we couldn't go at the resort. He was reluctant to make us dinner reservations, and in fact told us “The Mexican” was full. Well we went there for lunch and thank god Pedro got to know us and said to come back for dinner and he would get us in. Pedro renewed my faith in Occidental. I will write the company with more details not to bore you…….. I have never used pool service however Angie Montalvo was a constant worker around that pool. She was going so hard, I don’t know how she did it. She was so amazing on her day off, we felt it. I hope Occidental notices employees like her and Pedro. The location is in Nuevo about 20 cab ride to PV………depending on your cab driver the price can be anywhere from 200-500 pesos. Always get the price before leaving in the cab. If you forgot anything, there is a mall across the street……..its a bit pricey but it’s across the street. Also do the bike tours with Johnny B Good………..they are a riot! I will definitely return to the Occidental Grand……it’s a well oiled machine. The managers are always in the background watching to make sure everything is smooth…….and it shows!!! Loved it.
