I had a very nice time.

I enjoyed my time at the occidental grand, but it was expensive to take any trips out of the hotel. It was a much longer trip to the forest zip line than I'd planned. I would have preferred. I tend to like staying closer to outside activities. If I had only wanted to stay at the all inclusive hotel it would have been a great trip.

My husband and I spent our one year anniversary at this resort and had an amazing time! Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. We had a great time at the beach. The nightly entertainment was great and our room was very nice. A great vacation for the price.

Poor All Inclusive Option

Overall this hotel Quality was poor for an All Inclusive Hotel....constant inconveniences and poor delivery. Food and Drinks was lacking and options of Amenities weren't what I expected for an Occidental Hotel

Relaxing trip

my first trip to costa rica..the hotel was beautiful, with great views. The room was clean..The staff there was great, very friendly and accommodating. The food was not so good.. the buffet style restaurant became redundant after a few days. There were 2 restaurants which were by reservation only, but since it was off season, only one opened at a time-we got to eat at The Italian, where the pasta seemed watered down. The nightlife was non existent! There is a club and a bar there, but always empty. Overall a great place to stay.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

Coco Beach is good for souvenier shopping, and bars. Short taxi ride that can be arranged by hotel staff

Beautiful location

The location of the resort is beautiful. We loved the beach and the way the trees gave natural shade when needed. We were absolutely blown away by the abundance of wildlife right outside our room which we were also happy with. The only thing that needed improvement in the resort was customer service by the front desk personnel. They are the people that offer visitors the first and the last impression of the hotel, and they failed in both occasions and during our stay. The hotel should have people at the front desk who are friendly and customer service oriented and prepared to help. During our stay the front desk did not have all but one pen when we needed to borrow one, would not make a local phone call for us to arrange transportation without extra pay and were not welcoming when we first arrived or did not even ask how our stay was when we left. However, all the other personnel were very friendly and helpful and overall, we really enjoyed our stay.

Sightseeing tip: In Hotel

Using the kayaks is free and it provides nice little exercise to go out in the open water where the views of the surrounding beaches are fabulous.

Occidental Grand Papagayo All Inclusive

I liked this hotel but I wish there was more to do than just go to eat, the pool, and the beach. There weren't really any night time activities.

Girls going away trip!

The resort was in an excellent location. Resort had beutiful views at every angle you stand. when we first arrived our room were not ready until 7pm. we arrived from a 9 hr flight at 12 noon. Finally after all the complaining we started to do (after 3-check out time) they gave us room. I orginally requested 2 beds, they wanted give us a king bed. refured the room so they gave us a 2bed dirty room. Overall staff was pleasent especially the the activity host. The food was not the best. The resort is super relaxing. If you are looking for a party resort than this s not it. But extremely peaceful. Finally, its a safe safe country and the Ticos & Ticas are so so pleasent and friendly. Enjoy your trip!

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

While we were there we did the Buena Vista all day tour, which included Canopy, horseback riding, Water slide (which was near death experience). Buena vista is approx. a 3 hour drive from resort, but with beautiful sites. This tour is a must do activity. Also the sunset walk was cool..you leave from the resort and take a 20 minute walk.
