    Occidental/Barcelo Rehab

    Lots of work going on at the Occidental. Painting everywhere, new disco and casino opening in two weeks. Couple of new shows added, food getting better
    Barceló spending some money. Occidental officially out of selling timeshares.
    Next Aruba trip in

    Did Occidental sell all of their resorts?

    Occidental has sold all their resorts.

    The shows are past their time, they worked when the resort was geared toward family,
    Americana, Allegro days.

    Occidental, Barcelo aren't kid friendly.
    Cost of All Inclusive has risen 30 percent in 3 years.

    The food in my opinion, still hasn't reached the level of the past, Americana, Allegro..

    The money being pumped into the Occidental resort, not justifying the skyrocketing cost..

    The problem, Barcelo wanted the cash cow, Aruba.
    Looking at their cost on other islands, they're much higher, so imagine
    what Aruba cost will become...

    It has already started, and they are going to price themselves right out of the market.
