3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Spent 2 weeks at this resort. We arrived when the hotel was quiet, so we were very lucky as the locals do like to take over the place & have no manners. I don't normally let busy places ruin my day but there's busy then there's animals. When you can't turn your head to one side without being pushed out... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Food was absolutely amazing, especially the specialty restaurants. Always great breakfasts and lunches but the buffet at dinner could be better. If it isn't busy they let you book restaurants more than 3 times which I recommend. Nightly entertainment was terrible. Not kid friendly (we don't have kids), sexist at times and lame most of the time. There was WiFi... More

I spent 3 days at the Gran Ventana Resort recently. The resort is clean and quite. If your a late night person you may be upset because everything closes at 12 pm. You can walk to the Disco which is right outside of the resort for the local experience. The buffet is good, and the staff is friendly. During the... More

this review is honest and true, but in brief the hotel was clean and the staff were very good , the entertainers were great (if you are young and pretty) they were not interested in the under 10s , no games while we were there for the kids club except colouring in a hut, and the night shows were pretty...

Stayed here in June. The hotel itself is kept very clean. The cleaning staff around the bar/entertainment area work extremely hard to keep the area spotless. The waiters and bar staff are great and try to accommodate all your needs. The one thing that bothered us was that we were given a room above the gym and you could hear... More

Stayed at this resort for two weeks from 7th June with my husband and 2 year old daughter - this was our first holiday in the Dominican. We booked through Thompson and apart from them charging us extra to sit with our daughter, everything else was fine. The hotel is great, really clean and I was taken aback by how... More

I stayed a week here while on a medical mission trip in DR. The hotel is beautiful and VERY clean. I felt pampered by every single person who works there. My only complaint is the food. The buffet had a lot of choices, but was not very good. The specialty restaurants were only slightly better. There is free wifi in... More
