It's an honor to announce that Occidental Vacation Club has been awarded the coveted RCI Gold Crown rating for 10 of our resorts!
The term Gold Crown resort is reserved for the highest standard vacation / timeshare resorts within the Resort Condominiums International (RCI) exchange network. In most cases the RCI Gold Crown Resorts provide the owner the highest trading power within the RCI exchange network. In addition to other ranking qualities, the final Gold Crown designation is achieved only through actual Guest Comments with point ratings that must be higher than 4.4 out of 5.
RCI is a global provider of leisure travel services to businesses and consumers, and the global leader in vacation exchange. Today, RCI has approximately 3.8 million members worldwide, who enjoy dream vacations at RCI's more than 4000 affiliated resorts.
Those resorts designated by RCI for this highest designation are: Occidental Grand Flamenco Punta Cana, Occidental Allegro Playacar, Occidental Allegro Cozumel, Occidental Grand Cozumel, Occidental Grand Flamenco Xcaret, Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta, Occidental Grand Aruba, Occidental Grand Papagayo, Occidental First Club Allegro Playacar, and Occidental First Club Allegro Cozumel.
According to Luis Namnum, President of Occidental Vacation Club, “Receiving this award is a great honor. We are proud to be affiliated with RCI and glad to welcome the thousands of members who exchange their time to visit our resorts in paradise. The Gold Crown standard comes with hard work and a team of hospitality professionals who are dedicated to making sure our guests have wonderful vacations. The warm service at our resorts also played a significant role in our recent Trip Advisor Certificates awarded to six of our properties.
“Not only are we located in spectacular tropical areas with plenty of sun and fun, we also work hard to make every aspect of our all-inclusive vacations enjoyable for visitors from around the world,” he said.
Thank you to all our members, friends and guests for honoring us with your comments and ratings. This award reinforces our commitment: to provide all of you an excepctional vacation experience.

Every year we give away an incredible vacation week for all those who participate in our Share the Joy program. Our last raffle was an all expense paid trip to the London Olympics, and Nector Tejada, from the Dominican Republic was the happy winner!
He and his son Sterling spent a whole week walking around London and enjoying the Olympics spirit.
"I'd like to thank Occidental Vacation Club for the opportunity to travel to London. We had a lot of fun, London is a beautiful city. We visited many of London towers, St. Paul Church... it has amazing architecture. And the Olympics were very exciting! We had the chance to see a boxing competition. It was a great experience. Thank you, OVC, for making it happen".
