Occidental Hotels & Resorts began its operation in 1982. It started with a budget of a million pesetas (Spanish currency) and with locations in four countries (Spain, Portugal, Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico). In the next thirteen years new hotels were incorporated in the Caribbean, Europe, and the North of Africa, plus new hotels in Spain. From 1996 to 1998, new shareholders make their way into Occidental Hotels. These were banks and financial institutions. They became interested in the company’s growth potential. In the year 2000, the Allegro hotel chain was bought increasing the number of hotels and rooms in an extraordinary manner. This step allowed Occidental to take over numerous properties in the Caribbean and Mexico. In 2013, the company restructured its long term debt and asked for more capital in order to improve its products and services. Occidental’s brands, the Royal Hideaway, the Grand, the Allegro, and Occidental hotels have expanded and offered differentiated services in the last few years.
Occidental’s portfolio consists of four main brands:
Royal Hideaway – This brand specializes in the all-included niche. It is a luxury brand that offers a wide range of highly personalized services. Spa, gym, and gourmet cuisine is available.
