My stay at Occidental at xcaret
Reviewed 16 hours ago

My stay at the occidental at xcaret, was very good. The property was gorgeous we love the jungle feel and all of the wildlife it had to offer. Our room was next to the deer and they were beautiful but we really enjoyed it when we saw the monkeys playing in the trees. The Maya ruins were beautiful and really made the property stand out. The rooms were clean and very comfortable I am very sensitive to loud noises and I never heard anything outside. The kids club was great and the ladies there seem to really enjoy their job they all spoke perfect English and were very kind and playful with all the kids, thank you Regina. There's no real beach on this property just ocean but there is a man made lagoon that also looked beautiful. It is excellent for a little ones and its full of fish but can get a little stinky or perhaps it was just the fact that it was raining when we went. I chose this property for the snorkeling around the ocean near the edge by the lagoon restaurant. However due to the weather I was on able to experience it. The other great thing about this resort and why we chose it, was that it has direct access to Xcaret park in which for a small fee you can add it to your package when booking and have unlimited access to the park. However if you're looking for more extreme fun the resort is also located next to two other xcaret parks like exploreI. The food on the property was good they had some variety. The omelettes are pretty good in the morning but if they can add more ceviches and pastries that would be great. The Tacos in the restaurant by the beach were awesome. Activities during the day at the resort could be a little better or they just need to inform the guest of where they're happening. The night Entertainers on stage really try hard and they're pretty entertaining. One con to the greenery and all of the pools is that there are a Lot of mosquitoes at night so be prepared and get some repellent. Other than that we had a great stay. Oh I forgot to mention be aware of the time share people the math does not add up, if your smart and a decent online shopper you can get a better deal on your vacations.

Myself and my boyfriend stayed here two years ago and we decided to return this year! This place is amazing and since our last trip has gotten even better! The grounds abd our room were kept so clean and the staff are amazing! So friendly and helpful. We absolutely loved the mexican and steak house and the staff in these go above and beyond! The animals are a bonus and we got to meet pancho the monkey! I love the beach mostly it is so relaxing and the buffet at the beach is amazing! The food is so fresh and its so nice to eat outdoors. I cannot recommend this resort enough it is 5 stars! We cannot wait to return!

We had a great trip to occidental! Although it stormed 5 out of 6 days we were there, we still enjoyed our stay. The resort is large and requires alot of walking to get to places, but worked good for us to get in our exercise between all the good food!

Exellent Resort and Hotel in Playa del Carmen, Mexico
Reviewed 2 days ago

My family (4 of us) enjoyed a lovely 4 night stay. The place was emaculant and quite beautiful. It's accommodation were far better than we expected. Staff was so willing and helpful. Especially Andres at the El Pescador Restaurant. He remembered my dietary needs and what we ordered the day before, and went above and beyond.
We were able to see and do most everything there on the resort for our short visit. ( see the ocean, relax on beach, many pools and restaurants to choose from, and wild life to see, plus Mayan ruins)
Thanks to the Hotel Staff for making this an amazing trip and experience.
