We are still in the hotel and we have been here for almost two weeks. The hotel is small, clean, well maintained and the staff is nice and welcoming. However even though I deeply respect the fact that local tourist also have to come on vacation and that this is their country and they should enjoy it too, on weekends... More

Thank you for your recent visit to Gran Ventana. You are correct, we are more of a family resort and do not offer late night entertainment and for the evening enjoyment of all of our guests, we do close the games and pool bar at 6 pm. We do hope you find a resort more suitable to your tastes. More

I will admit that I read several reviews and figured most people were staying to long in my opinion and had to have something to complain about. But I will admit, your best bet is to do excursions during the weekend and get your reservations for the weekend as soon as you arrive. (This is not a joke, reserve now... More

Thank you for your recent visit to Gran Ventana. We would very much like you to know that this past weekend marked the end of summer season which does get busier on the weekends. The rest of the year our occupancy is more evenly spread throughout the week. We agree that we need to improve the a la carte reservation... More

Thank you for your recent visit to Gran Ventana and your kind words about our staff. We would very much like you to know that this past weekend marked the end of our summer season, when we tend to get a higher percentage of local clientele on the weekends. We have primarily international clientele from now through next summer. We... More

The resort was wonderful, especially if you have kids. Room: We had a Junior Suite, which was very big. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. The bathroom was clean and spacious as well. We had a balcony with pool and ocean views which was nice if we wanted to get cleaned up before dinner and the kids still... More

Lovely hotel, the staff look after you all the time and are extremely friendly and helpful. Food good and caters for all from fresh fruit to the unhealthy option of burgers etc. The only downside is the influx of locals at the weekends - the hotel gets very swamped and very, very busy but after they have gone Sunday evening...

This is a review of a family vacation, with only one weekend night. I feel it is necessary to state that up front in order to make a fair comparison to other postings. Arrival was good, bell staff (Carlos) was friendly. Check-in time is 3pm, and they stuck to that. We used the facilities until the room (Junior suite) was... More
