This was my first time to Puerta Plata and it was a last minute 5 night trip. We chose the VH Gran Ventana based on reviews from Trip Advisor. We got exactly what we expected. The resort suited our needs. Our room was close to the pool however we were not once bothered by noise. The room was clean and... More

My girlfriend and I were at the VH Gran Ventana from March 27th to April 3rd, 2014 inclusive. This is one of the best 4 star resorts I've ever been to. The buffet, a la cartes and food selection were amazing. Ask your waiter for an Espresso or Cappuccino to enjoy with your meal, they're fantastic! The check in process... More

We have just returned from a 2 week break at the Gran Ventana (1st April-15th April ) and whilst this our 3rd time to D.R.(2nd to Puerto Plata) it was our first visit to this hotel. There are good things about this resort however some things the hotel should look to improve sooner rather than later. The room was fantastic,... More

A heart felt thanks to the Gran Ventanna for yet another wonderfull vacation in the sun. Your staff, Elvyn, Natilie, Maria, Simon, Animation Team and many more are the reason we will return. Their upbeat attitudes and personable touch are your greatest asset. Thank you very much for a time to remember. We found nothing to complain about at this... More

Okay well first impressions THe hotel is really clean the staff is very friendly some of the friendliest I've ever seen, however there are a few gripes about this hotel one is the timing in which they take away the games such as the pool table and the tennis balls and the volleyballs. They take them away when the sun... More

One of the best vacations since Varadero, Cuba. Had so much fun with the entertainment crew, 69er, Sweety, CocaCola, and the others... sometimes they were alittle pushy, but fun. The rooms great, clean, need more places were we could put our clothes, maids were so so, had to tell our maid to clean the counters, and change our pillow cases...... More
