SANTO DOMINGO, DR (April 18, 2013) — When Occidental Vacation Club (OVC), a division of Occidental Hotels and Resorts (Madrid), received the coveted RCI Gold Crown rating for 10 of its resorts, they decided to celebrate.

The term Gold Crown resort is reserved for the highest standard vacation / timeshare resorts within the Resort Condominiums International (RCI) exchange network.

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.

Luis Namnum, President of Occidental Vacation Club, was on hand along with RCI and other Club Executives to share the joy most recently at Occidental Grand Flamenco Punta Cana and Occidental Grand Flamenco Ixcaret. He said “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 discover our resorts in paradise. The award also benefits OUR members as the recognition puts our members in an even better position to exchange, should they want to leave our all-inclusive paradise for some reason!”
In addition to the opportunity to mingle with high level executives, the member’s celebratory parties were filled with music, dancing, non-stop tropical adult beverages and top notch entertainment.
“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,” said Namnum.
The club has 11 resorts located in Aruba, Costa Rica, The Dominican Republic, and Mexico.
