The resort’s three pools are surrounded by lounge chairs and include an oceanfront zero-entry pool and a huge party pool with swim-up pool bar and cold-water whirlpools.

Rooms at Occidental Punta Cana offer a modern style consisting of abundant hardwood accents, gray fabrics and neutral hues, and tropical wall art. Beds are a mix of one king or two doubles framed by plush hardwood headboards, while low-slung couches provide seating. All rooms have either pool, garden, or ocean-views, as well as outdoor spaces with seats and tables for lounging. The resort’s Euro-styled bathrooms are fully tiled, with marble vanities, recessed lighting, and rainfall showers.

Food options abound at Occidental Punta Cana, but keep in mind that reservations are required for dinning at the a la carte eateries. Be sure to reserve early, as the reservation window closes once capacity is met. There are 11 restaurants to choose from as part of the all-inclusive plan, and include options like Asian-fusion, an Argentine steak house, Italian, and Mexican. The latter is the liveliest of the venues. For casual eats, Al Alcazar buffet is huge. There are also a few grab-and-go spots including Las Canas Snack Bar, La Taqueria Taco Stand, and La Fontana Pizzeria. Bars are scattered throughout the resort, offering a variety of libations.
