The NEW Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta will officially open in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on December 15th, 2011 following an extensive renovation and rebranding. The hotel, previously known as the Allegro Nuevo Vallarta, will now reopen as a brand new, Occidental Grand resort offering a plentiful amount of amenities and superior service. I have had the pleasure of staying at a few of the Occidental Grand hotels and they are wonderful. This hotel is located on beautiful, Banderas Bay, in Puerto Vallarta and it is only 30 minutes from the airport. This is a fairly small hotel with only 270 completely renovated rooms. The hotel does offer a Royal Club with Mini bar daily replenishing, Private check-in and check-out, Personal Concierge Service, Pillow menu, Nightly turndown service, Preferred seating at a la carte restaurants and Complimentary high speed Internet. All the rooms have been renovated and look wonderful. The Occidental Grand is a family friendly hotel and has a highly regarded kids club. The kids club offers a selection of games and recreation carefully organized by a team of experts. They also have a Fun Club to help keep everyone active. Duriong the day, select from water sports, horseback riding, snorkeling, volleyball, tennis, or diving. At night, enjoy sports bars, discos, live stage entertainment, or head to downtown Puerto Vallarta for world class nightlife. Come and enjoy a great vacation at the New Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta.
