Occidental Grand Aruba

Occidental Vacation Club, a division of Occidental Hotels and Resorts (Madrid), announced that its vacation club membership is up year over year for 2011, at its all-inclusive resorts.

The President of Occidental Vacation Club, Luis Namnum, says, “We are attributing this steady climb to our all-inclusive model, which is becoming more and more popular with travelers. In addition, we continue to receive very high marks on traveler based web sites such as Travelocity. People who own and visit here continue to give us extremely high satisfaction ratings not only for our paradise-like vacation destinations, but also for the warmth and hospitality they find when they arrive.”

Occidental Vacation Club has beautiful resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean, with eleven all-inclusive Occidental Vacation Club resorts in Aruba, Costa Rica, The Dominican Republic, and Mexico. The club’s membership includes over 23,000 members and saw an approximate seven percent increase in sales in 2011, increasing from $31.81 million in 2010 to $35.45 million in 2011. Roughly 1500 new families became Occidental Vacation Club members in 2011.

We were proud to be listed near the top of the leaderboard among timeshare resorts in active sales according to a survey conducted by Vacation Ownership WORLD Magazine.”

What Does All Inclusive Mean in Vacation Club Ownership?

While many people are familiar with all inclusive resorts, they do not realize that some vacation clubs and timeshares offer all inclusive pricing.

At Occidental, membership means that guests enjoy unlimited meals and snacks during each day of their vacation, along with á la carte dining in specialty restaurants including unlimited alcoholic beverages.

Club member/owners pay no fee for tennis on lighted courts, water polo, aqua aerobics, and kayaking where available. They enjoy unlimited use of the fitness center and other onsite amenities as well as daily and nightly shows, live entertainment, and use of a supervised Kids Club for children, ages 4 through 12. All taxes and gratuities are included.
