    “4th time; back in Sept.”

    This was my husband and my 4th trip to this resort. WE LOVE THIS PLACE! Because we go to Mexico twice a year, we look for the best "bang for the buck". Here's what we get for our money at Occidental: 1. Best staff of any resort we have ever been to. 2. Best food of any resort we have ever been to. 3. Small and relaxing. Easy to get around in. 4. Great beach. Walk for miles..... 5. Great pools. 6. Fantastic management Special thank you to Rodolpho the general manager, Nellie the assistant manager and Felix the food and beverage manager. BRAVO! You all do a great job! The resort has added a Japanese rest., Enclosed and air conditioned the buffet, and is in process of building a new Mexican rest. We can't wait until September so we can come back to our home away from home! Cathy and Larry Helbig

    “Amazing all-inclusive vacation”

    Our group of travelers consisted of 11 stressed out US medical students who needed a break, and Occidental surpassed all of our expectations! We booked our all inclusive vacation through CheapCarribean.com, who were also great and very accommodating. Throughout our stay the hotel was clean and comfortable, although our room's door handle broke off a few times (maintenance was always quick to arrive). The pool area was usually a little crowded with many children and families, so we hung out on the beach chairs in the sand by the ocean. The ocean was warm and clean, and kayaking, skinboarding, and paddle boarding were all available for free from the resort (there were also jet skis, parasailing, and other motorized sports for a fee). A waiter usually came by about every 10-20 minutes to get our drink orders, which was great but also a little dangerous! There were a lot of fun/silly activities to do every day to break up the time sitting on the beach, including volleyball games, beer drinking contest, dart contests, Zumba, water polo, water aerobics, water volleyball, and many others! Both the bar at the lounge and next to the pool were fast and had a huge repertoire of great drinks! The buffet food was fine and had a large selection, but the three dinner restaurants were absolutely spectacular. After every dinner we were in awe of how much delicious food (and tequila) we ate! The resort was truly all inclusive - we enjoyed a limitless amount of delicious food and great quality drinks (especially the tequila!). There was usually some live music in the lounge at night, most notably an excellent young female violinist. By the end of our 5 night stay, many of the staff greeted us by name and knew our orders. Our favorites included Benjamin at the lounge bar, Nadia the cocktail waitress, Kristen, Jesus, Carlos the lounge bartender, Erik, and Kristal the waitress at the Japanese restaurant. Most of the staff spoke pretty good English, but they were also very happy to help us practice our Spanish! My only criticism is that (to my knowledge) we could only get bottled water in our rooms, and I would have liked to have a source (of bottled or even filtered water) somewhere downstairs in the lounge or lobby! Overall, we had an AMAZING vacation and would absolutely recommend this hotel to others for a relaxing and fun getaway!

    “LOVED IT!”

    Had the best 2 week holiday to this hotel. Staff couldn't do enough for you. They were so friendly and are a credit to this resort! Jonathon and the rest of the entertainment team made every day so much fun! Can't wait to go back :)

    “Anniversary trip”

    It was lovely from start to finish. Hitch with air conditioning was fixed right away. Loved it. Beach cabanas perfect and clean. Nothing to complain about here! Smaller resort was nice to meet folks. Great specialty restaurant.

    “2nd Trip did not disappoint ”

    Just returned from a wonderful 10 day vacation at the Occidental. Our trip last year went so well that we had to do it again and we are so thankful that we did. First of all I would consider the Occidental a family All Inclusive Resort, which is perfect for us. It allows us to relax and our kids to be active without any added stress. We met some other super families from Texas, Maryland, Arizona and California. All seemed to enjoy the structure of the resort. Thank you to all for sharing your vacation with our kids. Besides being a beautiful resort on an equally beautiful beach, customer service and the dinning options are what brought us back. Way too many names to mention but the entire entertainment staff do an outstanding job and work their butts off. Special thanks to Jonothan, aka El Guapo for teaching Emily how to dance and Luigi for entertaining William. Love the football helmet! All the bartenders, Ulises, Rene, Carlos, Benjamin and the rest. Top notch guys. Don't be shy about tipping them all. They deserve it. As well as Manuel Villar (1st week on the job) and Yohana Melchor. Both must walk over 15 miles a day hauling drinks. And they smile through it all. It was great to see Jose Manuel, Jesus Esquivel and Gabriela when we arrived. Big reason we returned. Service you can only dream of in the States. It was my pleasure to meet Capitan Hugo. Watching him supervise while getting his hands dirty on 12 hour shifts was very impressive. Gerardo at the front desk as well as the bell boys also do an outstanding job. Thank all of you. I'm sure I missed a few but any of the staff from 2016 that are still around must be doing it right. Two issues that I feel should be addressed. The swimming pool needs some TLC. There were a few tiles missing. And as I started, I feel this is family resort. 98% of the guest seem to understand that. 2016 we had the rowdy Australian wedding and this year we had the trashing girls on the 5th floor who yelled, cursed and were flat out disgusting. In fact, carrying a bottle of champagne down to the pool area was not wise being a "No glass" area. I really feel security/management should have addressed them. If you are looking for a vacation that includes great food, service and location then book with the Occidental. The Velasco's
