A young couple from Scotland, Nikki and Johnny, just spend a 2 week vacation in this beautiful resort.They loved every moment of it and will be back. Highlight of their vacation was: rescuing a young female street dog with a very bad skin/fur condition which - if not taken care off - kills the dog. They fed the pup, spend... More

We just spent a week at the GV. Unfortunately 2/3 of the hotel was under construction while we were there. This was not the fault of the GV, but a gross misrepresentation by our travel agent: Travel by Jen. Actually I loved that it was not crowded and quite quiet. The staff, entertainment staff, and dancers are what make this... More

I stayed at the Grand Ventana Beach Resort from August 6-12th and I have to say when we arrived we were immediately greeted and welcomed with cool towels. I felt at ease right away. Rooms: We stayed in the Catalina Building on the second floor facing the courtyard. The ocean was over to the right, I could see it off... More

Let me start off by thanking everyone who took the time to write reviews for this place. It really helped me prepare for my vacation and gave me great ideas on what to expect, what to do as far as activities and what to avoid. So I've decided to return the favor with this very detailed honest review. My boyfriend... More

We stayed here in August 2014 for 1 week. When we arrived we were checked in promptly and given our room keys. We had two rooms for the size of our party. One renovated and one in the old format. We had the one in the old format which was quite dated and the bathroom was not very nice. We... More

We got married here in march 2013. The hotel was amazing can't fault the cleanliness, quality of food (although that got a bit repetitive at times) and entertainment staff at all. The rooms were spacious and clean although we had to ask for a cot as we had our baby with us. The pool bar was lovely in the evenings... More

My daughter and I stayed at this property from Aug. 27-Sept 3. The entertainment staff was probably the best I have seen. Their shows were great! Different themes every night and the hotel is small enough that they all know you by name after the first or second day. Not the same old song and dance every night. Joan at... More

On our way back after spending a week here. Overall really no complaints. The service was excellent 90% of the time. A few people we dealt with just weren't very friendly. Food was average. When I go to AI's, I don't expect the food to be five star. I thought the ala cartes were excellent and the buffet boring and... More

loved the hotel, the service and specially the entertainers! thanks to "la shorty", jesusito, droopy and the rest of the team for making our stay a great time. Would definately go back. I went with a group of friends and although it is more family oriented (less party), the entertainers tried to make our stay as fun as possible! THANKS
