We are a family of 3 when we book Gran Ventana, the room is good, we were booked at Catalina, food is ok there's a new main dish in the Buffet everyday. We tried the a la Carte all three of them and the Octopus is the best in my opinion. The main pool is not bad, bartenders are friendly... More

Nicest cleanest beach, very good variety at the buffet, excellent specialty restaurants. Very helpful and friendly staff. Very good amenities. We stayed 2 weeks and the selection at the buffet turned over enough that we never dreaded going back. The ocean Grill, beach side restaurant served up fantastic fresh fish burgers. Our room in the 'older not renovated' section was... More

My husband and I had reservations at this hotel in March 2015 for two weeks and all the accommodations at the resort were most enjoyable. We had a lovely room that was kept clean daily!. We chose this hotel because it had reefs where my husband and I could enjoy the snorkelling from the beach! The food was presented well... More

Just wanted to start by saying that my wife and myself have been going to Gran Ventana for the past 15 years. I had also left a previous rating of the resort that stated the truth at the time in that they needed to do renovations. We were prepared to go elsewhere, even though the staff at this resort IMHO...

You can't go wrong with this resort. We've been there in March and it was just perfect. Very clean, nice beach, nice room, good food, friendly staff, close to the airport. In particular Julio is a very good tennis partner/trainer.

Great service, very friendly people. The buffet is very good and the a la carte is excellent, make sure you reserve early in the morning. Quiet pool is very good for relaxing. Make sure you do at least one excursion, the 27 cascadas were fun and so were the buggies(bring clothes you wouldn't mind getting muddy) also bring some water... More

I had such an amazing time at the Gran Ventana. They have such great entertainers. Carlos Santana, Delfy, Bon Jovi, Allen, and Shorty are wonderful entertainers and they always made us have such an amazing time. They were so funny and fun and they made the lifetime at the resort amazing and SO entertaining. I would definitely come back again!

The entertainment was awesome! They always had something planned and for this we chose not to leave the resort. Randol was awesome at the pool and aerobics. We also loved Delfy and BonJovi and shorty along with the rest of the crew that turned our trip into a memorable experience. They are all friendly and we enjoyed our time with... More
