Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta is located on the beach and about a 20 minute drive north of the airport in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Had a chance to spend some time at this resort and came up with this short report on what you need to know about this resort,
Completely redesigned, rebranded and renovated. It re-opened Dec 15, 2011 and is spectacular.
Located on the beach with excellent views of Pacific sunsets.
171 ocean view and 48 garden view rooms make up the resort.
Dining at the resort features 2 à la carte restaurants: Italian and Mexican plus the main buffet restaurant with panoramic views of the pool and ocean.
A weekly manger's cocktail party lets guest mingle with hotel management and get to know them on a personal level. The general manager has to be one of the most friendly, easy going and approachable managers I have ever met in my travels, he certainly adds a touch of class to the resort.
The wide and seemingly forever beach at Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta is of a golden brown sand.
Plenty of palapas available to shade you from the hot sun and if you feel like a game of beach volleyball go for it, there's always a game going on!
