Even though their huge buffées are plentiful and varied they are still lacking ingredient lists for most dishes. I, being an "extra complicated" person with many allergies first found it challenging to eat something. However, when we addressed it to the person in charge they helped both to single out my "safe dishes" and also to cook various dishes for...

We stayed at Occidental Margaritas for a week with half board. Both me and my husband have special and also uncommon allergies. While the buffé did not always accomodate for this, they happily made special courses just for us. The food was very good! I'm extremely happy with my stay here and will recommend it to my friends. The only...

This all inclusive hotel provides excellent value. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Children's outdoor play area is so well equipped that my granddaughter aged 2 would happily have played for hours. Variety of food excellent and staff so helpful. We had 2 superior rooms overlooking the pool and decor very good. We had great weather throughout our week's stay and...

Nice grounds -well maintained. Room a good size with comfortable beds. Food ok but restaurant very canteen-like, Diners had to squeeze past each other's chairs all the time which was very irritating. Waiting-on staff looked miserable & were pretty inefficient at times. Entertainment staff awful & evening entertainment in particular was terrible.

Reception staff were all very friendly and helpful. The Suites reception had a modern feel whereas the main hotel reception was more comfortable with sofas. Very comfortable beds in the bedroom. The sofa bed was OK but it would be better with single sofa beds as my children found it difficult to sleep together. The noise from the next door...

Excellent food. Restaurant staff very pleasant and service-minded. Good service all over. Free bus to the beaches. Clean rooms and comfortable beds. Wi-fi not satisfactory unless you get one especially installed in the room. Lamps by the beds should have been better. Air condition should have been more effective.

Okay hotel, BUT very noisy entertainment at night, until about 11.30pm, so if you have small kids, its not for you, freezing cold pools, beach 15 mins bus free ride away, not a lot for kids to do in the resort area, food okay, kids not catered for though. No Wifi in rooms !! Daily maid service good,
