All in all a very good family hotel. Our room's 1117/1116 were very clean and tidy, although not as modern as hotels we have stayed in previously in DR but, comfortable. Facilities around the pool and beach were great and the kids were very entertained throughout the day. Entertainment was ok, a balance for kids (Earlier in the evening) and... More

I will start by saying there is something fishy about all the 5 star reviews on this hotel! After our stay there I find it hard to believe that anyone would rate this above a 2. This will be a very long review, but PLEASE believe it is 100% honest! My husband and I take two to three couple and... More

We stayed for two weeks at the end of July, and the weather was consistently sunny with 30+ C. Ocean is warm and beach is deep with enough space to accommodate all, even on the busiest days. Wind and the vendors are the constants on the beach. Wind pick-ups after 11am, and starts to affect the mood (it can start... More

Just returned from a baseball trip to the DR. My son was on a 16-19 team that played in the DR. The entire team stayed at the Gran Ventana. This review could have easily been a 5 star review with the all inclusive package to feed a hungry group of ball players. On the first day at the Gran Ventana,... More

Booked this hotel though a regular tour operator but arranged a premium package directly with the hotel through email (very quick and accommodating response). We were happily surprised by the tremendous added value this package offers: a private beach area with comfortable loungers and Balinese beds, with a friendly drink and lunch service to your chair. The Vintage Club is... More
