First of all, we have traveled the world over and have stayed at 3-6 star hotels everywhere. We have been to Puerto Vallarta 9 times and this is our fourth time returning to the Occidental. The property recently changed hands from Occidental to Barceló and the changes were more than obvious. While there were many pluses, there were also many...

We really enjoyed our recent 7-night stay at the Occidental. We arrived with our ten-month-old and in-laws, and the resort accommodated our request for ground floor, adjoining rooms, which worked out great for child minding by the grandparents if my husband and I wanted to pop out to the nearby pool for a dip, walk the beach, grab a snack,...

I was at this resort from Nov 27th to Dec 4th 2016. From check in to check out this resort had it all. The Buffets were the best I've had at any resort in the past 16 years. 2 Omelet stations plus everything else you would need for Breakfast. The staff remembers you and greets you kindly every morning. I...

This is the type of resort that I prefer. It offers just enough. FRIENDLY staff, wonderful food with the pool and beach just a short walk from our room. There are 4 options for food: 1) an Italian restaurant 2) a Mexican restaurant 3) a buffet restaurant - best buffet offerings I've ever seen and 4) an outdoor/poolside restaurant. We...

Stayed mov 15-30/2016. It appeared that most people here were enjoying themselves and got along well with staff. We saw numerous return guests who seemed oh so pleased to be back. I found most staff to be pleasant with only a few that were more than just cordial. Marisol in the lobby bar and another waitress were quite friendly and...

We fell in love with this gorgeous little resort last year and thought we'd finally found the perfect all inclusive for our yearly vacation. We had recommended it to family and friends and even took our senior parents there when we returned this past week. Once again we were continuously impressed with the amazing staff. Erik at the buffet, always...

People were very friendly and helpful. Very relaxing. 2 bedroom oceanfront with a balcony was great. Fun club group was great. The food in the buffet was only ok, but it was a large buffet. Went to the mexican restaurant and it was pretty good.
