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.

Best staff anywhere!

Go to royal and be treated as royalty. You will not be disappointed. The most beautiful beach 🏖 we’ve been to in the Caribbean. Very large campus with lots to do for all ages. Every thing is well kept. Always staff cleaning, painting, manicuring the lawns. BEAUTIFUL

Overall we wont be visiting again. The staff were friendly for the most part, rooms are fine and clean. But the personal service and getting things done that guests request, has a long way to go.Check your food is cooked through properly, and see advice with regards to drinking water and ice.For us it was an average hotel stay, do not expect more than tihis.

Amazing vacation

We travelled in a group of 11 people for a wedding anniversary celebration. The food in the a la carte restaurants was good, nice selection and service.The buffet lacks variety, they have the same stuff every day and the place needs to be updated. Lots of water damage. Waiters are hard to find for coffee refills, but they try their best.The a la carte restaurants have a hard time accommodating large groups. Each night we had to have the same discussion about seating all of us together, the fix was quite simple, move tables together to accommodate large groups, the restaurants were far from running at full capacity. It seemed like such a difficult concept for them to accept…they would always try to sit us at 2 tables…absolutely ridiculous!The pools and the beach are beautiful. We were in room 24114, the rooms need a upgrade, although it was clean and comfortable.Our friends took the premium alcohol package, absolutely not worth it. Only 2 bars on the beach can accommodate the premium plan and they close at 6 pm. The lobby bar should offer the same service, but they don`t sadly.The shows at night were entertaining, we enjoyed the shows. The M.C. spoke much too fast and was hard to understand.The big negative is similar to what we experienced in Puerto Plata, during the low season they allow the locals to come in on weekends. It becomes a Zoo, pushing and screaming in the restaurants and at the pools. They have absolutely no respect for anyone, tourists or people working at the hotels.

Beautiful Resort, very well kept. awesome staff

we belong to the vacation club and booked for the Royal Club. 24 hrs before where informed that they are doing construction and we where placed at the First Club.The room was very nice and clean. Very modern. First days of our vacation where fine, We got to dine at the members restaurants. Others where a nightmare trying to find where to go eat. At the day of the storm we where moved to the second floor for security. Same day we lost internet and Tv and water services. They informed us that we where going to stay on our rooms and dinner was going to be delivered. Dinner was a plain ham and cheese sandwich, a hot juice, a warm yogurt and a banana.Our room took a lot of water from the back of the balconies and the front door too. . we understood it was an emergency but they where not prepared for it. We spend the rest of our vacation with no running water for 3 days, having to wash with wet towels with bottle water, there was no tv or internet for those 3 days either. we never have experience such a horrible experience. we understand that because of the emergency services where not that good but i also knew other resorts in the area didn't lack water or services. been there before many times and never had a bad experience. so i suggest if you go please don't go during hurricane season. And as for the Club they did a very poor job assisting us. Having to chase the place we where supposed to go eat was not in our plans. Staff at the restaurant where the ones that made our stay more easy. They where very helpful and understanding. The first club staff was the best, But i cannot say the same of the Royal Club staff.
