My wife and I spent a week at the Gran Ventana in January 2014 and enjoyed ourselves so much we decided to return in November. If anything, we enjoyed this second visit even more as the resort and beach were less crowded simply due to time of year. What follows is what I posted on the resorts Facebook page shortly... More

My wife and I traveled to Gran Ventana from Santiago for a recent holiday. She had been there before as a management consultant and some years back. This was a "lets see how well they listened to our recommendations." What better time than to look at processes in place than a busy holiday. VH Gran Ventana shines!! The facility was... More

We went to Gran Ventana in April 2014. The first thing that strike us was the pleasantness of the local people. The reception area and our room was very clean, air conditioned and mini fridge filled with refreshments. IMPORTANT ! Both, the main building and the beach are wheelchair accessible. Food-huge variety for breakfast,lunch and dinner. Amazing fresh juices. Staff... More

I stayed at the Gran Ventana from November 6-20. I must admit that I was a little leery thinking this place was "too good to be true" based on the many excellent reviews. My fears were unfounded as I discovered a resort that was perfect in just about every way. Not being from one of the major chains, it really... More

My boyfriend and I were here from October 11-15th, 2014. When we arrived, we were greeted with cold cloth towels and a fruit drink immediately. We didn't use the pool, but we really enjoyed the beach! All inclusive food and drinks was a great perk, and the food was always satisfying. We used the little grill near the ocean entrance... More

As avid travellers, we strive to find a great resort where we can find little wrong with the all around all-inclusive package. the Gran Ventana is one of the places. Most of the other visitors are repeat patrons (and we can see why). The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable, the staff super friendly, the service quick, fresh food, nice... More

We just came back from a much needed break. Incredibly helpful and cheerful staff. Lovely beach. Comfortable rooms. We took a private taxi tour into Puerto Plata and the driver and guide were very accommodating once we laid out what we were interested in seeing/doing (i.e. enough with the jewelry and cigars). We toured the Haitian village and we well... More

Considering that this is the time of the year that hurricanes and renovations may be in order one has to be realistic and understand that it is what it is. Carlos Santana was entertaining and the staff/food/grounds/room were all excellent. Best fishing trip ever as the crew made it one to never forget. Highly recommend Gran Ventana any time of... More
