This is a small resort it was great for our family. We took our kids and our parents and Everyone had fun. When you sat in the main pool you could see the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other. The first thing I would suggest is to book your reservations for the restaurants including the buffet... More

I visited the Gran Ventana Beach resort once again in March of 2015, except this time as a solo traveler. My first night when I arrived I started looking for familiar faces right away and when I didn't see any I got very dissapointed. However, to my huge relief, the entertainment team arrived in the morning and things went back... More

We spent a week at this VH resort. Thankfully we upgraded our package to the premium level, which made the experience a hundred times better than had we not. The vintage club and it's entire staff was what made the experience great for us. You get to eat at the specialty restaurant every night with this option also, which is... More

This was an amazing vacation! My 3 friends and I came here for our spring break. It was great for our money. We walked in and were greeted with special drinks and cold towels. The renovations are beautiful. All the restaurants were great. We made reservations right when we got there and had no trouble getting them. The Italian restaurant... More

Had a very good room. Staff was helpful and service was great. Food was delicious, best roast pork I ever had! Many activities and nightly entertainment. Lots of great seating areas. Went for one week, should have gone for two.

My comments echo the other 2 couples we traveled with and many people I spoke to while at the resort. I'm not here to bash it only to advise people of the experience you may have. I was disappointed with the level of service at the resort. I don't blame the actually employees, the hotel was understaffed and you can... More

This place was beautiful! Great service, friendly faces and tones of food, drinks, and activities! Made some forever friends! Definitely planning on going back every year. Missing it! Plus doing the water aerobics with Randol was awesome! He is so full of energy and very friendly! Loved the staff!

I was a little apprehensive about an "all inclusive" place as I am vegetarian, but there were plenty of vegetarian options at every meal. Very nice resort with great staff. I had a few minor quibbles - the gym was cramped and almost unusable. However, they had a yoga class twice a day (morning and afternoon) outside, every day. I... More

We were there from March 5-10th We paid 400. for vip club.The girls that are there ignored us. We had to go back and corner them to get info on what we had purchased. The club is nice but one of the perks is supposed to be getting reservations in the restaurants. One morning we were told that we had... More

The resort is very clean and the staff are very helpful. They are always willing to help and want to make your stay very enjoyable. Slight downfall, I was very much looking forward to eating at one of the restaurant that you needed an appointment. Octopus is a very nice and quiet restaurant, I loved the ambiance but I was...
