We had a great stay, myself and my two daughters ages 9 and 11. The Hotel was clean, wonderful pool and great beach. the staff could not have been nicer. I was impressed with the entertainment staff they worked hard to have afternoon games, night time entertainment and dance lessons. The front desk and bell staff were great, I definitely... More

We arrived at Gran Ventana for a week long stay on October 14th, 2014, and from the moment we arrived until the moment we left, everything was amazing. I came with my best friend, 27 and 25, this our first time to DR. The hotel is beautiful! They just finished renovating and it was clearly a great decision. The grounds,... More

Just returned from a stay at Gran Ventana for 4 nights, 5 days. The weather was great, the food could be better. The buffet was average, Ocean grill ala carte was very good and the italian restaurant was not okay. They do not tell you this on the website but the ala carte restaurants are only available certain nights of... More

Oscar Lora the new manager came and spoke to us, also the management party's are great. Appreciation of the staff is a great moral boost. Animation team excellent as... More

We had never been on an all inclusive holiday before and were a bit wary as we like to get out and about. We found it excellent, as the food was great, lots of choice and 3 different a-la-carte restaurants to go to, and cocktails, both alcoholic and non, were varied. The facilities were splendid just a hop, skip and... More
