This was the worst resort we have ever been to in Punta Cana. Overall, the rooms were unattractive and full of ants, the food was so-so (don't go to the Mexican Restaurant), and the service was way below par. The resort was fairly nice and the beach was beautiful. Our trip began with checking in while there were 500 drunk...

We just got back from our holiday and I have to say that despite the Hotel we made the best of our trip. We all got hit with the diarrhea on day one and we're still having side effects from it. The hotel is very dated and needs to be upgraded with new plumbing. Our bathroom light leaked water over...

My wife, myself, and three boys all loved our experience at the Occidental Grand during the last week of March. From the very moment we arrived at the lobby entrance we were greeted by numerous friendly staff, all willing and ready to help with luggage and transportation. I needed help because I'd arrived with a leg cast and crutches, and...

My friend and I traveled to the Occidental Grand Punta Cana from March 5 to March 12. Very nice resort. The pools were clean, the rooms were well kept, and the staff was wonderful. The only negative thing I have to say about the place was in regards to a rowdy bunch of muscle head sterroid freaks who over ran...

Security was lack, buffet was very good, Drinks watered down, Pools and beach clean, No information posted anywhere (show time, buffet themes,events, and activites). Needed upkeep....

This was the worst experience in all our years of vacation. Service,assistance,help, staff,food,all of poor quality. With March break on hand we expected better service and assistance, rather staff was arrogant and they let a bunch of kids FROM 16 TO 18 YEARS OLD GET DRUNK WITHOUT ANY SUPERVISION. We complained and the answer we received was that we should...

The Beach was absolutely amazing, can't beat Bavaro. Possibly better than the NH Real Arena. The pool was massive and clean with a great swim-up bar - the pool was possibly better than the beach, to die for really! The rooms, however, not to my liking really - not the cleaniest and kind of musty. But the cleaning lady was...
