Can anyone help me with the dress code for dinner at Occidental Grand?
I want to find out if the following are acceptable; Short sleeve shirts, polo shirts, jeans, Smart shorts?
I have emailed Occidental and got this response; 'For dress long trousers/slack, collar shirt and closed shoes or dressed sandals are required for men. Casual sport,dressy shorts allowed no tank tops.'
Apologies for anyone who has read the same query from me on another forum!
"Posted on: 8:39 pm, March 04, 2009 Men definitely have to wear pants in the ala carts except in the caribean restarant both men and women can where nicer shorts.
I never wore shorts in any of the restaurants, except the caribean, but I seen a few women wearing dress shorts in other restaurants. The men will be turned away no matter how nice the shorts are in all the other ala carts. I never ate in the buffet so I'm not sure of the rules there. During the day you can wear whatever you want in the buffet, but you must have shoes on and men must wear t shirts."

"You can wear short sleeves as long as there not tshirts,Polo or buttoned up short sleeves are fine.I definitely would not wear jeans to the italian or the oriental restaurant but i have seen people wear jeans to the mexican restaurant."
Yes women can wear shorts but men have to wear slacks. I have seen men with jeans, I think their "thing" is long pants for men in the evening at the restaurants. My hubby just takes a pair of dockers and wears differents shirts--don't want to pack heavy.
Oh and right after he eats, he changes back to shorts. No big deal for us. Enjoy your stay!! We do, and can't wait to get back.

Yes Lisa you are right. No to the long sleeves and YES to the polo's with a collar or button down collars. My hubby, like I said, takes dockers and mixes up the shirts. He doesn't have the slacks on long--just long enough to eat dinner.
