Traveling with the ENTIRE Family to Occidental Hotels and Resorts

By Susie Reese

Sometimes it’s difficult to find a resort everyone in your family—adults and 2.01 kids*—can enjoy. And once you throw in the grandparents, possibly an aunt or two, a couple cousins—you might as well stay home and host a family reunion.

But the days of the backyard barbecue with the in-laws are over (at least until Memorial Day), so make your next getaway a true family vacation at Occidental Hotels and Resorts. In lovely Aruba, elegant Riviera Maya, stylish Cozumel, chic Nuevo Vallarta, sun-soaked Punta Cana, and vibrant Papagayo, Occidental welcomes multigenerational families with engaging entertainment and gourmet gastronomy.


Did we say entertainment? We did.

Each Occidental resort has unique features, so not every Occidental has the same set of fun and sun. Check out a rundown all the resorts, so you can chose the one that best fits your family.
