I had previously never traveled outside the US. This was an amazing trip. The staff were all very helpful. The entertainment staff tried their best to keep people engaged in activities. Fvesita, Cucuralo, Cocoa, and Alan were excellente' staff that made the trip even better.There were periodic activities around the pool and on the beach. Snorkeling in the reef was... More

We had the pleasure of staying at the Gran Ventana Beach Resort on April 14 to 28th. This was our first time here and we could not have been happier with our stay. This was our first time to Puerto Plata. We had done some research about the various resorts here when we booked last September, and all indications were... More

Room was clean and maids were accommodating and friendly. Quite noisy from upstairs with the sliding of chairs. Next time will take a top floor room. Food was quite good, lots of variety. Francisco santos, the captain of the buffet restaurant was very gracious to us and made sure he took time each day to chat with us. Our first... More

The facility was very well laid out and the swimming pool was fantastic. The facility is a little bit old, but it is well maintained. The beach area is nice, with the palapas and natural shade created by the trees, it was easy to find shade. The food was plentiful, although it was quite bland. (I guess that should be... More

15 of us went to the Gran Ventana for a 4 night 5 day mini-vacation. We had a wonderful time. The resort was not too crowded, there was something for everyone in our party to do. We were not expecting to have rooms that were convenient to everything but we did. Quick walk to the beach and the pool. Only... More

My Second trip to the Vh Gran Ventana, this time I arrived with my mother. Since i came last they have upgraded and renovated much of the resort and it now looks clean and classy and still gorgeous! This time around we stayed at the Beata Building and at first i was worried as it is separate from the rest... More

For a relaxing vacation you can't beat the Gran Ventana. This time we stayed 8 days and had beautiful weather. You have the beach or the pool with the swim up bar or just lay in the sun or shad and read a book. There are some activities which you can join in or you can just relax. The food... More

Went to this Resort from April 16th to the 23rd. The resort was clean, the rooms were clean and the staff really friendly. The food in the Al a carte were very tasty and the buffet house was typical of most of the resorts in this area. The Play dorado area has suffered from less tourist coming to the area.... More

We chose this resort based on price and reviews/pictures and we were not disappointed! The Gran Ventana is a perfect resort for a group of people. It is small enough that we were never looking long for people in our group but big enough that everyone could have their own space, and there were 75 of us! The resort grounds... More

We really enjoyed our time at the Gran Ventana. If you're looking for 5 stars it's not for you, but for the price it was very nice. I would put it at 3.5 stars. Not ritzy, but perfectly comfortable and clean. The employees were all really great, rooms were clean and comfortable, food was good. The beach was great. There... More
