I loved the Occidental Grand. The food was really great, the bartenders made great drinks(best mojitos ever! and definitely try the Aruba arriba) and we upgraded to the Royal club so we got a personal checkin from the concierge. I would definitely go back there. One thing that they need to change or update there is they definitely need a kiddy pool. The swimup bar is in their one beautiful pool, but there were kids jumping off the bridge into the pool and crowding the bar. It was not always like that, but in the afternoon there were definitely alot of kids in the pool. I also thought they should have more lunch options. We upgraded to the royal club so we were able to eat in their restaurant, but I was not a big fan of the buffet options they had there for lunch. Other than that I felt very welcome there and would definitely go back tomorrow!
