Check in took FOREVER. The staff wasn't accommodating and I concur with a review I read with respect to the staff seeming bothered by you needing something from them or interrupting their personal conversations. The elevator worked 2 days of our stay & the one time we were forced to take the stairs there were human feces & vomit in... More

We were worried that at the price we paid we were not gonna have a real 5 star hotel. Boy were we shocked. This hotel is way more than we bargained... More

We just returned from a six-night stay at the Occidental Caribe (ex-Barcelo Punta Cana) and can report that it exceeded our expectations. We traveled out of Cincinnati on Xtra Airways and although the aircraft used in both directions were older, ex-Olympic Airlines 737-400s, the flight was smooth and on-time. We purchased an upgraded seat package at the airport and the... More
