If you go to the Occidental Grand, choose the Royal Club upgrade. Tons of perks including a private dining area, private pool, and a private place on the beach.

I'm not going to list all the negaitves. What I will tell you is that the staff is incompetent and unfriendly, the drinks are a joke and the accommodations are in the category of slummy. Book it at your own risk.

The wedding planning, Lanny, made all of dreams come true. She was absolutely wonderful, as she fulfilled all my requests with ease.
