Occidental Vacation Club, a division of Occidental Hotels and Resorts has announced the reopening of Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta, its all-inclusive property located on the Bay of Banderas in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

The 20-year old beachfront resort has completed a total refurbishment of its 270 rooms and suites, lobby, three bars and most of its restaurants. Some other notable changes to the resort include four additional restaurants and a fashionable new lobby bar.

Although the resort is part of a vacation club which offers exclusive features and amenities to its members, it is open to the public for all-inclusive vacations. The renovations are part of an ongoing commitment by the growing Occidental Vacation Club to invest in upgrading its existing properties, while adding on to its existing collection of 11 properties.

"This is not just a remodel," said Luis Namnum, president of Occidental Vacation Club. "This is, for all practical purposes, a brand-new resort. Our members will still find our signature warm, wonderful blend of fun, relaxation, romance and attentive service that we are known for, but in a new setting. It is not unlike a good plastic surgery - the same at the core, but with a fresh new look. Members who return here will be amazed at the changes that have occurred.  We have upgraded the property from a 3 ½-star property, previously branded as Allegro, to a 4 ½- star property. On the top floor, we developed a luxurious Grand Level floor. All of our Grand Level units have spectacular ocean views, a private lounge and access to a full service restaurant."

All Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta vacations include unlimited meals and snacks, a la carte dining in specialty restaurants including unlimited alcoholic beverages, access to sports (including tennis, water polo, aqua aerobics and kayaking) and use of the fitness center. Daily entertainment and a supervised kids' club (ages 4 - 12) are also part of the package, as well as nightly shows and live entertainment and all taxes and gratuities.
