    “Great for families”

    Lots of teen kids while we stayed there. We liked the food for the most part, if we got there early enough. Its hard to cook for so many people and sometimes the chicken was dry. I loved all the veggies.

     Good morning Mary, Again we thank you for this very kind review of our hotel and we look forward to serving you again in the future. Regards, Martin Guerrero Director General Occidental Tamarindo

    “Great location but needs improvement on food!”

    The Occidental is located walking distance to Tamarindo proper. The rooms are decent and they are in the process of updating some of the buildings. I did not notice any rooms with ocean views. The food is buffet style and was not good. We actually ended up going elsewhere most meals. Omelet bar was good. Bars do not have a selection of beer- so if you like a light beer you can buy that in gift shop. Staff is very nice. Wifi is spotty.

    “Average stay”

    We stayed for 3 days at the resort. We came from La Fortuna on a package trip so we didnt really pick this hotel. Pros: free drinks, beach is wonderful (small), town is a mile or so, pool area is clean. Iguanas everywhere Cons: Food is bland and needs work (buffet). Dinner doesnt start til 7pm. Room needs upgrades. Door to outside hardly locks. No lights to enjoy patio after dark. Shower was leaking, mold on bathroom door. While getting food, service was poor (water was forgotten for half our meal.) Racoons are in dining area. Overall my stay was ok. I wouldn't recommend this hotel however.

    If you're looking for a resort with 4 beaches, 8 pools and 8 restaurants...you might not like Occidental. If you're looking for a cozy place with a bit o personal touch, beautiful pool area and great staff - that's your place to stay. Our room was super clean and spacious and cleaning staff was very friendly. Food in the restaurant was very good (first time we didn't get sick!) Pool area was clean. You have to share it with large iguanas but well... Beach is small and wild but it's Costa Rica, it's beautiful. Bartender- Edwin- was super professional. All of the people there are working hard. Many thanks to Alberto, Joel and Edwin for making our stay special! We will be back!

    “Just OK”

    We have done several All Inclusives. This is a very limited one. Really only 1 restaurant (buffet) area. Dinner HRs didn’t start till 7pm. Only other option was pool side grill. Which really wasn’t much. Same “few” items daily that are set up for lunch. Just not appetizing to us. There is 1 “alacart” restaurant which you can go to no charge, # of times depends on length of stay. Pay if you choose more. Staff great, trips into Tamarindo fun. End of rainy season but our weather good all 5 days. It’s just really hard to beat Punta Cana for all inclusives in our opinion.

    A discount* or promotional code (also appears as “promo code”) is a combination of letters and/or numbers that gives a discount on the normal rate. If you have a discount code, enter it when booking and you will receive a discount on your booking. Once you have entered this code, the prices shown in step 1 of the booking process will already include the relevant discount. 

    The discount does not apply to prices on extras and/or extra services, neither does it apply to prices on last available rooms. You can only apply one discount code per booking which will only be valid at the time of making your booking.** 

    The maximum amount of accumulated discount will be at most 25% off the rate for hotels in Latin America and at most 20% off the rate for European and Mediterranean hotels. It is possible to combine a discount code with a special discount*** (discounts when you book multiple rooms, senior, resident, millennials, large families, etc.) and the discount for being a my Barceló client. 

    *Barceló reserves the right to accept the application of advertised discounts. 

    **The application of the discount code is not valid upon arrival at the hotel; the discount is only applicable at the time of booking. 

    ***The hotel will request to see valid official documents to verify compliance with the conditions for the discount codes and special discounts. In the event of not providing valid official documents or non-compliance, the hotel reserves the right to charge the amounts that were deducted from the original reservation.
