Everything started out well we had our boarding passes all printed out in advance so check in was much faster we did have to deal with our hand luggage being weighed now but other than that check in was great. Then after breakfast and some shopping we headed to the gate then because of Gatwick’s staff were on a deliberate... More

We have just returned from a lovely 2 week holiday. We stayed in the Catalina Block in a standard room 2115 with limited sea view. Although the Hotel is old it is well maintained, the rooms are spacious and have large comfortable beds, large flat screen TV & plenty of drawers & wardrobe space. The rooms are spotless, the maids... More

The place was clean, food was good and service decent. We were traveling without kids so the free Wi-Fi was... More

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
