    Don't know if you saw these recent posts discussing conditions at the Occidental
    The downfall of Occidental Grand Aruba??
    Anyone recently to the Occidental?

    Me and my fiancee will be there in mid October for our honeymoon. We have already paid for everything so there is no changes going to be made. I think someone is more inclined to post feed back about something bad then good. I wish more people though would post something because I'm sure there are others on this forum and other forums that have gone but said how it was.

    I've never stayed at the Occidental but do stay right next door at the Radisson. From what I could see the Occidental looks nice and well kept. The beach is wide and the grounds are nice. I've been in the casino which is also well maintained. I've never seen the rooms or know anything about the food, but the lobby is also well kept. It's a good location too because you are in walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Hope this helps.

    I like the Occidental in fact I liked so much we bought a time share thier. We my wife and I will be going back in Aug 28 09 we are owner of a Jr suite. I enjoy being pampered and not having to reach for my pockets every time I want a drink or to eat my room has a fully stock refg. along with a mini bar. ocean and pool view, the hotel is close to everything that the wife and I like to do.
    Yes your right there aren't many reviews about the Occidental I don't know why that is but it's fine with me. P.S 4 trip to Aruba 3 stays at Occidental 1 at the Divi Village. I rather the all inclusive
    Me & Ei

    Next Aruba trip in
