My husband and I stayed (with 3 other couples) at the Gran Ventana from Feb. 12-Feb . 20. This was our 7th All Inclusive with 3 being in Mexico, 2 in Jamaica and 1 in Punta Cana. Being that the price was substantially lower then we have paid in previous years we weren't quite sure what to expect. The amount... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here in February 2015. This was my first time in Puerto Plata, and compared to other all-inclusives we have stayed at (Aruba and Cancun) it was overall disappointing. Room- I have to say we are used to staying in beautiful hotel rooms with jacuzzi tubs, rainfall showers and at least a partial view of the... More

Just got back a week ago from this resort. Was there for a friends wedding. It disturbs me that what happened to us took place at a "4.5" star hotel considering the good money we paid for this trip.We were robbed from our room. We booked an excursion through the hotel and were gone the day before we left on... More

By far the most amazing vacation I've been on. This resort is beautiful. Super clean, tropical, gorgeous beach, excellent rooms, great food, friendly staff. I can't think of one negative thing to say about GV. I'd return in a heart beat. Congratulations GV for having such a great place and staff

We stayed as a couple from Feb 13-20. Overall the resort is ok. We upgraded to the Royal Package. I would highly recommend upgrading but you really do not need the royal service. There is no real difference between royal and premium upgrade besides price. Roman our beach waiter was AMAZING!!! He remembered your order and brought you drinks before... More

Just returned from Gran Ventana. Took my 3 grandchildren. The highlight of their stay was the Kids Club. Don't get me wrong, everything else was wonderful! The women, Kako and Laura at the kids club kept the kids, 2 years- 10 years, busy and excited to go back to the club's activities. The Gran Ventana has updated the buildings and... More
