  • The Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta (formerly known as Allegro Nuevo Vallarta) is located on one of the largest stretches of beach in Nuevo Vallarta.  Surrounded by the vast beaches and lush scenery of Mexico's Bay of Banderas, Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta Resort on the Pacific coast lets you get away from it all in style.  The hotel boasts several hundred rooms with beautiful marble-floored rooms and breathtaking views of the ocean.

    When the glistening bay beckons, you'll have a host of water sports to choose from that include windsurfing, sailing and kayaking. If you'd like to try snorkelling or scuba diving then stop by the pool for an easy lesson from one of the friendly instructors.  They've got plenty of activities on dry land also including volleyball, aerobics and an equipped exercise room.

    When you build up an appetite, visit one of the specialty restaurants or enjoy a lavish feast at the main buffet restaurant.  Sip a tropical drink as you stroll along the beach under the stars, check out the live local entertainment and staff theme shows.  Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta offers the perfect combination of fun, romance and tranquility

Overall nice stay. Beds were very hard. During our stay we had lots of soccer teams check in. They were screaming at all hours of the day down hallways. We tried to call the front desk but the phones were disconnected. We tried both rooms and after a certain time the phones didn’t ring. You heard everything in this hotel. Luigi ,Sergio,Humberto with events staff were great and we loved the water aerobics. Erik and Marslea were great in the buffet. Food was ok. Tokyo restaurant was amazing. The lady that made all the restaurant reservations was not friendly and was very short with her responses to questions. She probably should not be in that position.

Went for a week with family members - had looked at hotels in area - this one seemed to have a very nice beach so we opted for this. As a starter I would note to people that this is a time share hotel - First Club is what they call themselves. I am saying this as nowhere is this advertised and the Air Canada rep at the airport warned us before they dropped us off and indicated that they would be pushing us to buy. So - that never happened!!!! No one ever asked us anything or prompted us or lured us into any meeting or visit - so do not worry about that. I will note one thing and this is important - in looking for the hotel I of course looked at this site and other sites and saw rooms with balconies overlooking the pacific ocean and on certain sites they were advertised as 'club level room'. I did not dream this up and I researched this as I paid a bit more for a club room. On arrival as we had club level room we were taken to the 7th floor lobby and checked in easy as pie with a glass of champagne. Our concierge also booked us restaurants for the week and took note that we were celebrating a wedding anniversary and a birthday - Great - holidays off to a good start!!! We were given keys to our room and sent on our way to check them out - our luggage would follow. Then we opened the door to our room - while I will say the view was impressive - view of the pacific wonderful - balcony - NOT - non-existent - go over to my siblings room - same thing - disappointment for all. While I will not describe the back and forth I had with the Club concierge and the Hotel concierge - after a lot of discussion and a day later I was able to have us move to the first floor rooms where you have a patio door and a walk-out with either view of pool/ocean or garden - either one - they are very nice. What they did confirm is that yes there are rooms with balconies BUT they are only available for what they call 'owners' ie timeshare owners. Other than that we were off to a good start. The resort itself is small - about 300 rooms and I do believe we were in low season as there was very little people there. The rooms and the grounds are beautiful - everything is spotless. The food is very very good - very fresh - the food at the club restaurant was AMAZING both in presentation and in taste - I would recommend paying the extra fee for a club room - amenities are worth it - restaurant reservations - access to the club - its restaurant and the club bar at the pool was outstanding. Best places to order drinks! Buffet was great - good selection - always fresh. Italian restaurant was very good - Mexican was very good for lunch - ok for dinner - buffet always better. We ate at the Japanese restaurant - it was ok but not great. The hotel is rated from a 4 to a 4.5 at different sites - I would give it a 4. While the food was very very good - the drinks outside the Club bar leave somewhat to be desired and the wine is not very good - not at all. There is a wine list - half of wines listed were not available but again I believe it was low season. However the list is very very reasonably price but again when you go to an all inclusive I expect that they should have a decent house wine - this was not the case. Bubbly was good but sweet - but good - great for mimosas for the morning. It is a very nice little hotel - very very family oriented - lots of kids so great for families and the staff go out of their way to accommodate and ask if we need something. Highly recommend it!

The buffets have the tastiest and largest varieties of food of any all-inclusive I’ve ever seen. Several staff members are so deserving of recognition: Jocelin in First Club went out of her way several times to be sure that everything was perfect. Fernando (PeeWee Augustin Lotzo) at the pool bar was always bringing us specialty drinks and kept our cups full of delicious cocktails. Erik at the breakfast buffet, along with two other servers in both restaurants, Paol, and Perla, were efficient, friendly, and always smiling. The spa girls, Lupita and Daisy, give unbelievable massages! My family of six was so well-treated, and we can’t wait to go back! Thank you for a perfect vacation!

This was my husband and my 6th trip to this resort. We travel to Mexico twice a year. We have been all over the Caribbean and Mexico for years, and have stayed at 4 other resorts in this area. This is our favorite resort by far! Here's why: 1. VALUE: We can not get more for our money than here. We could (and have) spent a lot more money for a fancier resort, but we would not be as pleased as we are here. 2. FOOD: How anyone could ever complain about the food is beyond me. This resort has great food, and by far the best buffet of any place we have ever stayed. The specialty restaurants are very good, and service in all areas has been fantastic. 3. MANAGEMENT: Rodolpho the general manager; Nelly the assistant general manager; and Felix the food and beverage manager continue to do a fantastic job. Occidental's entire staff from housekeeping to servers to entertainment have a great team spirit and can do attitude. This resort suits us perfectly. It is very easy to access all areas without a lot of walking. The rooms have plenty of storage and the AC works well. No balcony in every room, but we don't care, all we do is shower and sleep in our room. The nightly shows are very entertaining and as good as any resort. The pools and beach are kept clean and drink service is provided. Entertainment crew provide activities all day long and you can choose to do as much or as little as you please. This is a smaller resort and probably not for party animals. Great for families, or couples. WE LOVE IT, and can not wait to return the end of September. Bravo Rodolpho!!!!!!!!!!!

Allegro Nuevo Vallarta is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Occidental grand Nuevo The hotel was very clean. Food was decent. Not a lot to do in the area. The hotel lobby bar was only open until 1am. More of a family resort. We asked the concierge for somewhere fun to go in the evening, and he sent us to a dive that wouldn't allow us inside we could only sit outside. Overall, not impressed for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely spot for a great holiday The only complaint I had was once in a while they needed more help a the pool bar. The resort was beautiful very clean, well maintained, the staff was fantastic. I would love it if hotels added an on site hairdresser! Just a thought. The food was really good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A perfect size. Had great service at the restaurants and bars. Eduardo at the pool bar and Daniel always around with a nice smiling face to see serving drinks at the pool and beach. The front desk staff could use a little more work on customer service. Didn't find them overly friendly. The Buffet was exceptional. We enjoyed the Mexican restaurant and the Italian was very nice with great ambience We were there for Christmas. The Christmas dinner outside with entertainment was a nice touch. It is a smaller resort but We loved that everything was right there. My husband went deep sea fishing and brought fish back to the resort and the chef cooked it for us for dinner. Thought this was pretty special. I would recommend this resort for families and those that want a quieter resort. Not much night life here but a nice lobby lounge for after dinner drinks and specialty coffees.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great potential but staff will bring it down Time share purgatory, they are always trying to sell you a time share. 3 different grades of guest. If you are not a member of First club, you can forget quality service. Heavy construction at the pool when we were there, to bad nobody tells you about this. Cannot enjoy breakfast or lunch because of jack hammers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing Staff! I've now travelled to all areas of Mexico, Jamaica, Spain and so on... The staff at Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta were by far the best I've ever encountered. From the day time Pool service man, Daniel to the evening Beach Bartenders, Carlos, Fernando & Ernesto... these guys made every day memorable and joyful. Friendly, fast, effecient, funny and inventive. After 4 or 5 days of drinking, it becomes very difficult to please your palate... just ask your friends at the bar to create you something and you're back in the game. In addition to the bar and wait staff, the hotel security was phenomenal. Friendly, helpful, prompt, made you feel safe, even came quickly with medical attention when I broke my toe and lost the toenail (gross). The hotel itself is smaller than many I've stayed at, but I like it because of that, it felt like home and things were easy to get to. Everything was clean, the food was always good, with lots of choices. I tend to get very sick of buffet food, but I found there was enough choices to get by. Truly for the price... it can't be beat.
