U.S. News Review

A member of the Occidental Hotels & Resorts family, the Occidental Grand sits on Aruba's northwestern coast. The all-inclusive resort's 380 guestrooms each feature terraces or balconies, Wi-Fi access (for a fee), and in the Premium Jacuzzi Ocean front rooms, Jacuzzis with sea views. Guests can head down to the beach or post up on a chaise lounge by the free-form pool. And when they've had enough relaxation, they can test their tennis or scuba diving skills. The Occidental Grand Aruba boasts six restaurants to stave off fun-induced hunger. Recent guests appreciate the service at the sit-down establishments like L'Olio and El Olvido, but found the line for the buffet at The Palm could be impossibly long, especially given the mediocre food offerings.
