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.

My boyfriend and I went to the Occidental Punta Cana for our 6 year anniversary and our stay was disappointing to say the least. Our room was not ready upon arrival and the receptionist was unfriendly and appeared bothered. An hour later our room was still not ready. When we finally got the room the shower was not working and a light bulb was out. Other things that were a annoying were the fact that long pants and closed shoes were required for men at most restaurants in ridiculously hot weather. Also, there is only one pool bar and it closes at 6pm.

Terrible dreadful horrible

This hotel is horrific - dirty, disgusting food , rooms dated , rusty bathrooms, pools are in dire need of repair . I can't stress enough just what a nightmare of a holiday this was. We simply couldn't wait to leave. If you're about to book this hotel don't !! Book anywhere else - you have been warned!

Best vacation ever.

I was visiting from Canada and I stayed in Occidental Punta Cana for two weeks ( july 31 to august 14 ). I enjoyed very much my stay at this hotel and I can say that this hotel is the best. The service, the staff, the rooms, the food, the pools, the gym, the beach and everything about this hotel was wonderful. I especially would like to thank Mr. Cesar Castillo, for ensuring that everything in the buffet area was clean and that everyone was well served and happy. I truly appreciate the way Mr.Castillo was taking care of things in the buffet and because of his outstanding service I was able to fully enjoy every meal I had at the buffet during my stay. Thank you for your hard work Mr. Castillo

Average at best

Just returned this Saturday . Before leaving read many many reviews and thought these people must be picky . I went with a positive attitude . First the bad . Check in is exactly as everyone said . HELL. I absolutely about passed out from the heat while waiting almost 2 hours . Finally got in our room which was comfortable . It was nothing fancy at all but very clean . The air conditioning was the bomb! The view was great , but plan on walking ALOT!! The pools was way to warm not refreshing . The ocean temp was perfect . We had already booked each restaurants for our week and was excited to try new things . However none was air conditioned and after a hot day in the sun was almost unbearable . The food was terrible everywhere we went . We quickly learned to eat a good breakfast (omelets) and fruit . Be sure and take sunscreen if not you'll pay 28.00 a bottle . If you want a bag of chips they are 10 or a can of pringles is 5. Candy bar 4.00. So smuggle in snacks . I lost 5'lbs . The shows woulda need awesome but the theater is about 110 degree and we couldn't take it. Now to the drinks . What a joke . They all taste horrible and the alcohol must be the worst ever . It's certainly a beautiful place to look at and the beach is amazing . I would go back but defiantly a different resort .

I was previously in Now resort and so glad I made the switch to Occidental Punta CAna. Beautiful property not that Now larimar wasn't , but I felt pampered and had attentive service at Occidental unlike at Now staff had attitude. Occidental didn't disappoint, food was good, property clean , fantastic AC , good entertainment and new clean rooms . Would definitely return
