My friends and I stayed at the resort for my 30th birthday. We had a great time. The staff was very friendly and had great sense of humors. The pool and the beach was nice. The only complaint I have is that the resort got very crowded on the weekend as all the locals visited at that time.

Myself and 5 other friends went for an entire week vacation (7 days) for a friend's 30th b-day and it was a great vacation. VH Gran Ventana had great facilities (pools, bars, restaurants, beach area, etc.); fun & friendly entertainment team led by Blonde in which herself and her staff were very hospitable; and the food at the buffet &...

I'm writing the review a bit late being that my boyfriend and I traveled here back in April but I just wanted to make sure this place had another good review. A lot of people complained about this resort but I found it very enjoyable. It is a small hotel which we appreciated and our room was right on the... More

My wife and I regularly stay here when we are in DR. The hotel is clean and the food is plentiful and well prepared. There are even a la carte restaurants available for no extra charge. The service is always good and the staff is very friendly. Many speak English so a language barrier is never a problem. Occasionally, the... More

My husband and I stayed at this all-inclusive resort because it was the location selected by friends who were getting married there. We had a great time. This was our first trip to the Dominican and our first vacation alone in 12 years; so we were very excited about the pending trip and really didn't know what to expect. We... More

Let me start this off by letting you know I had a full bag of travelers (small children (6-9), teenagers (15), grand parents (50s) and my husband and I who are in our 30s) and everyone had a really great time. The hotel is really very nice and well kept. We have been to plenty of carribean resorts and I... More

My husband and I stayed at the VH Gran Ventana May 12-19. We had an absolute blast. The rooms were nicely put together and clean. We found out our last night there that there are darkening blinds behind the normal curtains. There was an in room fridge that they stocked with beer, pop and water. You need to rent a... More

Everybody's experience is different, we went all excited as it was our honeymoon. I must say the welcome was great, we were greeted by enthused workers and a waiter waiting with a cool glass of passion drink and when we got to our room there was a honeymooners sign, and bottle of wine and a platter of fruits waiting.

First and last time going to this resort. The food was GREAT! The cleaning staff were GREAT! The beach was GREAT! And Speedy is the man! I have no more "great"ness to hand out... The room was adequate, no dressers for clothes and no iron (i haven't carried a travel iron since '93) and poor entertainment staff/activities. Apparently on the... More

Thank you for your recent stay at Gran Ventana and thank you for your kind words about the staff and the food. You are correct that we do have a larger amount of local resident guests in the summertime, but please know neither the pool nor the resort is open to the public. We do hope you will return to...
