I know there is already a thread about this resort... but it seems dead in the water. So here goes another...


Occidental Grand Xcaret Resort - Playa del Carmen - Occidental Grand Xcaret Resort Reviews - TripAdvisor


Click on "candid traveller photos" if you haven't already been to trip advisor...there are a TONNE of photos of the resort and some of wedding locations as well... from a regular Joe's perspective.

This may help some of you out.

After going through countless tour brochures, this one is now one of my new favorites... price is good kids under 12 are free, and the wedding info on the site is very straight-forward!

We have been looking for a resort that is not huge, has some character and charm... and I think I found it at the Xcaret.cheer2.gif

I think this is the one Jackie is getting married at. She hasn't been on a lot lately, but I'm sure she'll share a ton of info with you when she comes back.

WEll, unfortunately... after a couple of hours of digging around... Kids under 12 aren't free... they are at 4 other Occidental resorts... just not this one rant.gif

Can't wait to hear the reviews...


Even if we don't DW there.. I'd sure like to go there for a holiday anyways!


Have a great day!

I'm sorry I am just reading this thread now for the first time.


Yes, I am planning a wedding at the OGX resort. It definitly is very charming and the reviews on tripadvisor are mostly good ones which is rare to find on tripadvisor.


However just something to be aware of, if you are looking for small this is not the resort for you. It is actually a very large resort.


Hmmm, I think kids under 12 are less expensive though if that helps any.

Yes, I think it's gorgeous too! I would definitely be considering it if the beach wasn't really important to me...


So now, I'm considering the Grand Palladium... hmmmm, one day, maybe I'll make a decision, but my fiance has given up on me.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
