This was the second time I was at this resort in 4 months. The staff remembered me and my friends from our April trip. We were treated like queens. The bartenders and entertainment staff went above and beyond for us. The bartender Jose and Carlos from entertainment staff were truly amazing. The staff is so friendly and that's the reason... More

One entertainer... More

As returners to the Gran Ventana, we have seen many changes and had started to see the hotel getting dated and tired. We decided to give the hotel one more chance with a new general manager and we are so glad we did. The changes in the hotel over 1 year are remarkable both in the hotel and in the... More

Our stay was in June. We have stayed in various resorts throughout DR. In Puerto Plata this will be our 3rd resort. It was Nce. In comparison with Iberostar it is not AS kid friendly.

The waiters are very attentive and they have added wait staff at the beach which is great! Thank you to the Gran Ventana staff for making my stay always... More

I just returned from the DR and had two experiences in the month of August. I stayed at the Riu Bambu in Punta Cana and then at the Gran Ventana. Two different parts of the island, two totally different experiences. I much preferred the Gran Ventana for many reasons. Mainly, for the welcoming atmosphere and warmness of the staff. I... More
