Poor1.0 / 5
The trip I wish I was never on

During entire stay never had any hot water not even warm was suppose to have two beds and was willing to settle for a cot which they said they would bring right up never got one. we had a veranda on the 1st floor, door would not lock was exhausted going to desk with problems just gave up We were with a family of about 40 Would never stay there again Said when we were leaving they do not compensate for anythuing
4 night family trip
Occidental Grand Aruba - All Inclusive Resort - Palm Beach
Good3.0 / 5
We arrived as a group of 22 people (including teen aged boys and one small child). We had 9 rooms in this hotel and some of the families in the group had paid $8800.00 for their one week vacation including air travel for family of 3 (couple and child). Upon arrival, 4 of our families either did NOT have a room or were given wrong rooms. 2 families had requested upgrade rooms on line and paid extra for them (for ocean view rooms) only to get Parking Lot view rooms on the other side! Eventually by the end of the 2nd or in some cases 3rd day, adjustments were made, however, the welcoming experience and accomodations were very Dissatisfactory and unpleasant to start off a vacation! I don't think any of us in the group of 22 people, with 9 rooms will go back to this hotel, sorry! That said, I do need to add that the food was very good, especially the Japanese restaurant, and the Carribean Fusion, the nightly entertainment was very good, as they have a bunch of talented entertainers, and for service Mr. Renalto, the server at the Buffet restaurant was VERY helpful and nice!
