SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic – Occidental Vacation Club, a division of Occidental Hotels and Resorts (Madrid), is reporting that sales are on the upswing at the all-inclusive group of resorts.
According to Luis Namnum, President of Occidental Vacation Club, “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.”
The club has resorts located in Aruba, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and Mexico. There are more than 23,000 members at 11 Occidental Vacation Clubs.
The group reported an increase of approximately 7 percent in sales in 2011, rising from $31.81 million in 2010 to $35.45million in 2011. This reflects an addition of one resort to Occidental’s group and a 98 more units. 1,500 additional families purchased memberships over the last year.
“We are attributing this steady climb to our all-inclusive model, which is becoming more and more popular with travelers,” said Namnum, “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.”
The all-inclusive Occidental Vacation Clubs feature limitless meals and snacks; á la carte dining in specialty restaurants, including unlimited alcoholic beverages; sports (including tennis on a lighted court, water polo, aqua aerobics, and kayaking where available); use of the fitness center; and more. 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.
