We stayed at Occidental Caribe with our 2 kids from Feb. 10-17. We had a wonderful time. The resort was really nice, well laid out and the pool and beach areas were beautiful. Lots of different restaurants and bars to keep everyone happy. We especially liked the Italian restaurant and got excellent service from Rogesmer. He took such good care...

When i arrived not the best experience. The lobby manager Jose Carrasco made the experience so good and got us what we wanted. If you want a nice strong drink go to Omar Alcantara at the bar in the lobby by the stairs that go to club. He works after 6pm.

Easily the best beach you'll find in the DR. The other amenities are probably the average of what you'd expect to find for the price point. Having said that, you have to ask what it is you really want while you're visiting the Dominican Republic. If you make a bunch of money and are overly concerned about every detail being...

Been to this resort during February for one week. We arrived on a Saturday at 2PM and only got access to our room at 7PM. We had to wait 5 hours for our room. They kept on telling us to come back at a later time. At least I was optimistic and didn't make that situation ruin my vacations. The...

We met some lovely staff members, Osbaldo our breakfast server, Robert Jean a precious human who booked us at the spa, Mr. Black who hooked us up with unforgettable excursions (at the hut down the beach) and victor the singing bartender. All these men remembered...

Occidental Caribe all inclusive has the best location to the waters edge. If view matters, this is the resort for you. You get what you pay for. Staff are friendly and many speak many languages, so communication is not a problem. Bar drinks are premium and best are in the lounges and the one outside the Mexican restaurant. Be ware...No...
