Occidental Grand Xcaret

True to the name, Grand Xcaret is located next door to the amazing Xcaret Park. This resort is what tranquility, nature and luxury produce when combined.


This modern resort was carefully constructed around and with ultimate respect to its extraordinary natural surrounding. Buildings of elegant architecture conform to the subterranean rivers which flow through the property and lobby area. There is an unmistakable Mayan feel with tropical jungles and tropical animals immersed throughout the beautiful grounds.

The resort is a sprawling complex of three story buildings which adds to the tranquil atmosphere. Due to the size of the resort, a complimentary golf cart style shuttle transports guests to the beach every 15 minutes. We do not recommend this resort for those with walking disabilities. The beach is located next to a large open air buffet. The beach is man made which means the sand is hard packed. Because of the hard coral shore, the beach was dug out and created in a protected environment that allows the ocean water and marine life in, but keeps the sometimes menacing waves out. The beach is a place where you feel comfortable having young children snorkel on their own while being entertained with plenty of interesting marine life to view. Drinks, lunch and snacks are handy to the beach, so you don't have to run back to the main resort.

Three styles of accommodations are offered - Standard, Junior Suites, and Club Royal Rooms. All rooms are fashionably appointed as shown in our pictures. Major tour operators are assigned individual buildings which facilitates arrivals and departures as well as having their representatives assigned to that building to accommodate guest requests, scheduling of tours, or assisting in case of emergencies. For example - Funjet Vacations representatives, and guests are assigned to building #19.

Dining is a treat at Grand Xcaret with 11 restaurants to choose from. Seven of those are a la carte, with five requiring reservations and two that do not. Dinner reservations can be made for the duration of your stay upon check-in, and you are guaranteed 4 dinners at a la carte restaurants. A snack area remains open until 2 AM.

The staff at Grand Xcaret makes sure no one gets bored unless by choice. There are multiple swimming pools, tennis courts, weekly cocktail parties, nightly shows, a disco, outstanding kid's programs and much more.

Conveniently located next door to one of the area's major attractions, Xcaret Park, the resort is about 45-minutes south of the Cancun airport. You can speed up the transportation process by purchasing non-stop transfers. That way there will be no stops at other resorts along the way.

All meals - in eleven restaurants, including seven a la carte restaurants where reservations are required in five. Reservations may be made after check-in and you are guaranteed dining in four a la carte restaurants during a seven night stay. Snacks. Beverages, including alcoholic, soft drinks and fruit juices. Wine with diner. Weekly cocktail party. Nightly shows. Disco. Daily activities and Kid's Club with supervised activities. Fitness Center. Game Room with billiards, darts and table tennis.




This is where the magic comes in. This sprawling piece of paradise combined a beautifully architected Mediterranean style village to be in perfect harmony with the most unique of natures wonders. The subterranean rivers that flow throughout the resort, tropical jungles and wild animals appear completely undisrupted. The grounds separate Grand Xcaret from any other resort in the region. If your stress doesn't melt away before you get to your room - it never will.





Enjoy five pools, ten Jacuzzi's, two tennis courts, two paddleball courts, a Beach Club, Solarium, Archery court, Kid's Club (age 4-12), Mini-golf, Shuffle Board, Fitness Center, Spa, Game Room/Arcade, and Bicycles.
