we have just arrived home after a fab 2 weeks, the main reason we come back to the hotel is because of the staff and everything we need is catered for. 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

It is a family spot, with friendly people from all over the world. From the time we entered the resort we were handed there signature drink with great service. The... More

We have just returned from our 5th time at the gran ventana. The change to the hotel is bright and very clean and looks amazing. Even though it was quite quiet it was very relaxing. Everybody goes out their way to make sure you enjoy your holiday. The staff in the restaurants, bar staff and waiters are very friendly but... More

I recently visited The Gran Ventana Beach Resort (September 30 - October 7) with a friend, for a girls week away. We were a little nervous, as our only experience with going to the DR was negative, but thought that we would give this resort a try, as the price was right. We were not disappointed! As previously mentioned in... More

As both resorts are similarly priced, I have provided a comparison review of both resorts. Food: Both resorts offered very... More

Very quiet and clean place. Great for families. We were a small family, with a 5 year old and I was 5 months pregnant at the time and all I can say is that we had an amazing time there. I contracted the photographer of the hotel for my baby bump album, just loved all the pictures.
