Our Opinion

The Occidental Punta Cana is a great resort location for those looking for a place that holds great value and service. The hotel is well-maintained and cleaned regularly. The rooms are OK. However, they could use a little upgrading on some of their appliances, as some are known to break down. The shows held in the evening were OK. Sometimes they hold the same shows during the week however. This a resort that's suited for both couples and families, as there are areas and activities are geared for kids.

With its spectacular setting on famous Playa Bavaro beach, the newly renovated Occidental Punta Cana always has families, couples, and singles coming back for more! Featuring incredible dining options ranging from Italian to Mexican to an informal pizzeria and well known for its popular disco, Mangu. Glide through the lake-shaped swimming pools or take a stroll along powdery white sands. This friendly hotel offers comfortable accommodation, exciting live shows, and a great location close to golf and shopping.

Location: On famous Bavaro Beach, 45 minutes to Higuey, 30 minutes from the airport.

Third time's a charm! April 21 - 28, 2017

We stayed for our third time (2012, 2015 and 2017) at this resort. The previous times by the Occidental Group and now they were bought out by the Barceló group. They have done some renovating of not only the rooms but the pools, bars and lobby. The restaurants are all great especially the Pizza Parlour. The beach had all the palapas removed and extra trees were planted. If you upgrade to the First Club them you get access to the beach bar for First Club. We felt there was enough shade with all the trees to just move your chairs around! Can't wait to visit again!

Absolutely Stunning

At first we were nervous because Hurricane Irma swept through 2 days prior to us going. After contacting the resort and emailing and speaking with them, we were assured that all was well in the resort (thank God). SUPER happy we went because we had a fantastic stay here. The room in the Royal Club really made my sister and I feel like royalty. Spectacular place and the people working there were just as amazing!

We stayed at Occidental from aug30 to September 13 with my Wife for our honey moon. When we arrived, our room was ready right away and nicely decorated with balloons and roses. We stayed at Building 15 on a first floor. Buffet was huge with a big selection of food. everything was delicious., I ate mostly Rice and Beans, because i fell in Love with Dominican food back in a day while Lived in Washington Heights, New York. A La Carte Restaraunts are great. Seafood one we liked the most.its located near the Beach. Staff is Great everyone was nice and helpful. BIG THANKS TO A NIGHT MANAGER AT RECEPTION SANTIAGO ROSARIO(HERMANO YOU THE BEST) AND A SWEETEST LADY WHO CLEANED OUR ROOM YOLANDA PEREZ. OCCIDENTAL MANAGMENT GIVE THOSE 2 A RAISE. DEFINETLY WILL COMEBACK SOON.

Beautiful Resort and Great Staff!

We really enjoyed our stay here! We were here for 8 days in September and received excellent service. The whole staff is always friendly and happy, never encountered one unhappy or rude worker. There is a bit of a language barrier but that comes with traveling to different countries so it wasn't an issue for us. My boyfriend(now fiance) booked a romantic dinner on the beach our second day our server was just awesome! He made sure we had everything we needed at all times, even brought out bug spray and sprayed around our table on the floor for the beach insects. Our favorite bartender of all was Melvin Pena! He works at the bar inside the main lobby. He made our experience awesome. Melvin remembered our drinks and always welcomed us with a smile! If you take care of your servers/bartenders they will make sure to take care of you. Melvin had us as a regular at his end of the bar for a majority of our nights, we really enjoyed him. :)

This hotel is a fantastic place to stay if you're going to Punta Cana Dominican Republic.The Occidental is one of the best places NO the best resort we have stayed at . Stayed here for 14 nights at a very good price ,We cant give this enough praise to this place. From the moment we arrived the staff could not do enough for us. They had golf buggies and bell boys to take you and your luggage to your room. The room given to us in block 16 was very spacious , cleaned every day with fresh towels and in the middle of everything. food, food and more food, everyone tastes catered for here and plenty of restaurants to eat in. The buffet or the a al carte restaurants the food was all top quality. The main building buffet area for breakfast lunch and dinner had very helpful staff. one special mention to a member of staff was Franklin Hernandez, This waiter was very very helpful and did everything for us that he could to make our meal times great. Plenty of entertainment during day and in the evening they had a show at the theatre, The hotel is very close to the beautiful beach with plenty of sun loungers. I've read a few reviews picking about little things before i went ,but if you can't have a great trip at this place then your the problem not the hotel. The experiance we had was superb and can't fault a thing. Life is about memories and this is one of our best. We were at the hotel when hurricane irma was about. The staff had the guest interests making sure everyone was safe, again 10/10. i could go on and on with praise , I highly recommend this hotel resort for your stay in Punta Cana
