We came to build a home for a needy family, (there were 8 of us) and needed a place to stay. Friends who did the same recommended the Ventana. The food was great, the service was good. The ocean was great, In July the pool was to hot for me. Nice places to just sit and chat in the shade... More

Stayed in May 2015 and upgraded to the Royalty Package. Rooms were small but very clean. Staff were all very friendly. The pool area is nice, but gets very busy with locals on the weekend. Did not have any trouble getting chairs. The private area on the beach was great with the beds and butler service. The food was average,... More

It was our first time travelling to the Dominican, 11/7/15-18/7/15, but I have to say the Vh Gran Ventana is up there in my top 5. The hotel was lovely & the staff were fantastic! There isn't much you could actually fault the hotel with, there was an excellent choice of food, considering I'm a fussy eater. The pool &... More

I was impressed upon arrival we were greeted with a frozen mango drink and a cold washcloth,then they tell you about the extra's that are not included in your all inclusive price. Wifi is extra per day per device. All inclusive price does not included premium liquor, and if we wanted the upgraded package it would have costed an additional... More

After a rather terrifying flight we arrived 6 hours past our expected arrival time and were welcomed right in and whisked through check in.
