I usually don't write reviews for anything, but I really felt that I should this time because I took this trip alone. My husband and kids had other things planned (sports,practice..ect) so I had a week off from work and really needed a vacation so I booked a vacation alone... The moment I got to the hotel, the bell boy... More

We have just got home today from our first visit to the Dominican Republic. Booked the Gran Ventana Beach Resort with high expectations which were exceeded. The staff work continously to ensure that the holidaymakers are happy and are enjoying the experience. Went on two trips. The first to the cable car and Puerto Plata. The second was an outback...

I have never written a review before, but after this past vacation I felt it was necessary! I've been on many vacations, from all-inclusive to cruises to regular hotels and I can honestly say this was my worst experience. We had booked to stay at the Gran Ventana for 7 days, but after one night we ended up switching hotels... More

This was my second time to stay a week at the Gran Ventana. I returned to Gran Ventana because I again traveled solo and this is a safe, small, clean resort with good food, comfortable accommodations, a friendly staff, and great pool/beach areas. The staff is always ready to assist, yet leaves the vacationers alone to enjoy their vacation if... More

We booked through Thomson's and booked 2 twin rooms and 1 double for a couple and requested to be put on first floor and not ground. Don't know if this information was passed onto... More
