After reopening its doors in late 2011 following an extensive renovation, the Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta emerged as a top-tier, all-inclusive paradise resort.
The 270-room property offers guests all the standard amenities and accommodations people have come to know and love from Occidental Hotels & Resorts. In total, there are 156 Deluxe Ocean View rooms, 48 Deluxe rooms with garden views, six one-bedroom suites, three two-bedroom suites, six studios and two penthouses. There are also more luxury rooms for Occidental Royal Club members.
Each room comes standard with air conditioning, a hair dryer, safety deposit box, iron and ironing board, king or twin beds, a full bath and shower, a coffee maker, and satellite television. Cribs are also available upon request.
Located right on the beach, guests are literally feet away from the beautiful Mexico sand at all times. The property contains multiple pools, shuffle board courts, volleyball, water aerobics, a lighted tennis court, water polo and even a kids program. This resort has a little bit of something for everyone.
There are three onsite restaurants — Le Buffet, Los Olivos, La Hacienda Mexicana Restaurant and The Royal Club Restaurant — each offering fare ranging from buffet-style to classical Italian and Mexican. There are three “bars” on the premises, including a Beach Club Bar, lounge and snack bar.

Great resort except things were taken from our room by housekeeping and nothing was resolved by management.They searched our room like we were hiding something.We had to stop cleaning the room because they wouldn't change the maid.Unacceptable.
I had the best vacation to Occidental Nuevo Vallarta! Carlos Capitan was the best in all of the hotel!!! I can’t believe the service we received and the hospitality here! I will be back for another vacation!
