This resort came highly recommended to us by our travel agent and he nailed it. We both absolutely loved the Gran Ventana! All of the staff there are really nice, genuine people. Their animation team are some of the funniest people I think I’ve ever met. They are all so good at their jobs and you can tell how much... More

I relied heavily on the reviews of others before going to Gran Ventana. For the most part they were accurate. Food: the food is heavy and worse than I expected. I understand the food has to be mass produced, however, it does not have to be heavy. By heavy I mean it was all either fried or doused in butter.... More

This was our third trip to DR and our first to this resort. I would agree with most of what everyone has said before. The location of the hotel is fantastic. The beach is only a very short walk (under a minute in most cases) from the main buildings around the pool. The beach is always exceptionally clean and the... More

The resort itself is beautiful and very clean. Very well kept up. The food is plentiful and very delicious. The bartenders were "on the ball" and entertaining. The beach is gorgeous--the snorkeling right out front is amazing! I was not expecting that. The beach vendors are annoying at first, but you learn to ignore them. Despite all this, my review... More

Just returned from a two weeks vacation at the Gran Ventana. Having read many of the reviews there were no surprises. I agree with most of the reviews, positives and negatives. The place is clean, rooms are spacious, food was good, staff were very friendly and the weather was perfect. So I have no complaints. I believe you can make... More

Very good choice to go with your children. The facilities are relative small-medium size so you can get to the lobby, restaurants of main pool very easy. The food is the average you can find at any beach resort its´not bad but is not amazing, of course the can improve in the desserts. The employees are very helpfull and always... More

This was our first time at Puerto Plata and 2nd time in DR. The place was awesome and the staff were amazing, friendly, and funny. They all know how to keep their guests entertained. Every night there was a different show. They all had us laughing and dancing the night away. We loved Carlos "Santana" and SuperTino"69"!!!!! Everyone was respectful!... More

Place was very clean. Food was excellent with lots of flavor. First time down south would recommend this place to anyone. Service was great and the drinks were plentiful. Rooms where comfortable. Stayed in the quiet building away from the pool area but we couldn't get all of our rooms together in the buildings by the pool. Didn't mind this... More

The hotel was a little dated, but very clean. The staff were very helpful and if we had to call for something that was not in the room it was sent very quickly. The beach is very nice. I really liked that this resort was not a huge resort with a lot of people. The buffet was awesome, the food... More
