    “Excellent”

    We very much enjoyed the Royal Club dinning. The food in the other restaurants was good but we felt we were rushed to eat and leave. Once we spoke up, the staff was much better. Everyone was SO PROFESSIONALand nice. We love DR and have been going for over 20 years.

    “Disappointed.......”

    We own at Occidental Aruba- First Club Members. Used our week in Punta Cana this year. We were suppose to stay here last year but we're moved to the Barcelo Punta Cana at the last minute due to the Occidental renovations. We loved everything about the Barcelo...except we had a regular room not first club room. We decided to go back to the Occidental resort this year to see the new renovations. The rooms were very nice, the grounds were beautiful, and the beach was wonderful too! The food was not as good as the Barcelo. We had many disappointments but our #1 complaint was you were allowed one beach/pool towel a day / pp and there was one towel hut for this entire large resort. Several times we went to get a towel and they were out. We were told to come back in 45 minutes. Came back and still no towels. They opened at 8am and they Had no towels at 8have towels.....people were wtg in line. This is a beach resort and you are out of towels??? One towel a day???? This is ridiculous!!! 2nd....Every building had a very small ice machine on the first floor. The ice machine did not work and the water that came out of the machine was scalding hot. We mentioned it to the First Club Rep and she said you can come down to the first club to get ice. The ice machine did not work all week. The food was average. The Italian and steakhouse restaurants were our favorites. A lot of the buffet food was not hot. The shows at night were very good!!! The Occidental employees that entertain at the pool, dancing w/customers in the bar lobby, and before & after the nightly shows were wonderful!!!! The first club beach bartenders were alot of fun....Wilton and Francesco. We stayed in bldg 16 which had a nice view of the main pool. We requested ocean view or oceanfront but the first club rooms are not on the beach which was another disappointment. We met folks who booked their trip via Apple tours, they requested a regular room and were beachfront (and had first club privileges) and paid a lot less than we did and we are owners. Toilets don't flush very well and showers did not drain well. We woke up in the middle of the night to go to bathroom to find out there was no running water. This happened several nights. Coffee was terrible tasting....yuck! The cofffee supplied in room was so much better than restaurants. Had WiFi in my room and it worked great. There are no servers at the pool or beach. The vendors on beach are annoying! Will not return.

    “All around great!”

    My boyfriend and I stayed in an Oceanfront Junior Suite in building 26. The room was decent, the view and balcony are what made it great. We also upgraded to "First Club" which meant we get premium liquor at certain bars which are for First Club only (including a beach bar), and a designated seating area in the buffet, and a private hot tub and a few other perks. The resort was beautiful and huge and never felt crowded or too busy. The pools were great! The nightly entertainment was awesome, we loved all the shows. The food was okay, nothing special, however we really enjoyed the Oriental restaurant and went a total of 3 times for the week. Never had a problem getting towels like many of these reviews state! The staff was generally very nice and helpful, but there were a few times where we were slightly ignored at the pool bar because we don't speak Spanish and the employees served others before us. We especially had awesome service from Wilton at the First Club Beach Bar, and Lily at the First Club Bar and hottub area. They were great and very nice and friendly! As for excursions; we did 3 different ones and throroughly enjoyed them all! We did "Monkey Land" (you get to feed and interact with tons of spider monkeys!!), a catamaran tour to Saona Island (gorgeous island with beaches in the Carribean Ocean) and "Seaquarium" (walk on ocean floor with astronaught-like scuba gear). Highly recommend all 3 of those! We had a great week with awesome weather, despite it calling for rain every day, we only had rain on one day out of 7. I would go back to this resort if I was going back to Punta Cana.

    “A very good resort!”

    Even if we received a twin room in our honeymoon :)), we received in the villa with a sea view. Perfect services, pool, beach, entertainment. If i would go back in Punta Cana, Occidental resort it will be my first choice for it!!!!

    “Vacation at occidental Punta Cana ❤️”

    The resort was beautiful but make sure you bring all the stuff you need because it seems like every where you go around there, everything is very pricey; more expensive than in the US. Make sure you have transportation arrangements because taxi service is very expensive and since there are another occidental hotel they may take you to the wrong hotel like they did to us; we paid $40 from the Airport to the Hotel and $35 from the hotel to the airport
