My husband and I arrived here for our honeymoon about 2 weeks ago. We were greated with a cold towel and a delicious mango type drink as soon as we arrived. Once they found out we were newlywed's they upgraded our room. It took about 20 minutes to check in but we didn't mind because there was a bar off... More

Just came back from a four night stay. Great value, rooms are very nice and comfy. Resort is centrally located right on the beach. We stayed at the inner rooms since beach side rooms were being renovated. Service throughout was excellent. They even catered to special requests for meals etc. Not so great: Showers - not so great, weak pressure

There was 9 of us from ages 60 - 2 years old, this hotel was amazing. The staff are the best! Even though they were under construction you barely noticed! I would highly recommend this hotel, we are always planned to come back next year! The entertainment staff was great and funny! As well as Jackie from the tiki bar... More

Travelled here with my best friend for a girls trip for four nights. Last year we did Atlantis in Bahamas so we knew we wouldn't have the bells and whistles like there but we were ok with that. Staff were awesome, fun and hardworking. All staff were great and even the vendors on the beach that so many people complained... More

We just spent a week at the GV. Unfortunately 2/3 of the hotel was under construction while we were there. This was not the fault of the GV, but a gross misrepresentation by our travel agent: Travel by Jen. Actually I loved that it was not crowded and quite quiet. The staff, entertainment staff, and dancers are what make this... More

I stayed at the Grand Ventana Beach Resort from August 6-12th and I have to say when we arrived we were immediately greeted and welcomed with cool towels. I felt at ease right away. Rooms: We stayed in the Catalina Building on the second floor facing the courtyard. The ocean was over to the right, I could see it off... More
