A wonderful 10 days at this resort and could not say enough great things about our time there. Greeted promptly with a very efficient and quick check in within 5 minutes of arrival, and were in our room in about in 20 minutes. The safety protocols were in full force during our stay and the majority of guests ( 95 % + ) followed all the small rules put in place for safety of guests and staff. The resort itself was spotless at all times with consistent cleaning all over the resort from the beach to to the lobby, hallways etc. While the pool bar was not open there was 3 locations to pick up drinks throughout and executed flawlessly by a bartending crew that always had a smile on there face. The drink of the day was a big hit with a lot of people there The food was better the great !!! it would be putting an insult to all the chefs and cooks on a daily basis with a great selection of food at the buffet every night for everyone ( sorry if you complain about the food here ,you better give your head a shake!!) as you have to keep in mind that we are in a COVID situation and there are supply chain problems everywhere but the daily selection along with the theme nights selections were outstanding With limited guests there, a great shoutout to the animation crew to get people involved in the daily activities as they did there very best during the day and at night with the small amount of people there A special bonus every week is the manager of the resort Oscar Lora having a local Dominican dance celebration and an opportunity of meeting him but his incredible team from management to the everyday workers of the Gran Ventana While the resort was not running at full capacity the staff was and I know that just talking to other people there their would be no way they thought it would of been not just good but also exceeded their expectations also The beach was outstanding as was the weather from how clean the grounds were but like the pool never had to worry about finding a lounge chair at anytime of the day Since there are limited guests you will see the same vendors on the beach 4-5 X a day approaching you and a polite no thank you is all that is required, keep in mind that this their living selling things/products that they mean well and are always polite themselves An added bonus upon our trip was that the hotel is now doing PCR tests and Antigen in the hotel 6 days a week at a price that is the same as other outside locations ( PLEASE DO NOT use the medical center off site from the hotel, we heard and saw personally ,too many horror stories about test results from the medical center. The resort has absolutely no control over regarding false positive tests) All in all a great vacation and I am already booked for April 2022 for another 2 weeks at the same place

I stayed at the Gran Ventana about 8 years ago. I had an amazing time. I’d go back in a heartbeat. The staff was amazing and attentive. The beach merchants were kind and witty. I am still friends with a couple of the staff from back then. I recommend this stay to all who inquire about my Dominican experience. Also don’t be afraid to explore and live a little, you will meet many good folks. Of course, danger is real, but that’s part of the fun; is it not? Live a little my friends and you might just have the experience of a lifetime, I know I did. Gran Ventana 5/5 love y’all.

I stayed here for a week and I highly recommend. The resort is beautiful and very well taken care of. A special thanks to the entertainers Jovanny and Ana, they really made my stay and a wonderful experience. This resort has the best beach area compared to surrounding places. There’s a lot of variety in foods, activities are fun, and the staff was very attentive and accommodating throughout the whole trip - their hard work didn’t go unnoticed! Staff wears masks and everything is super clean. My first time here and I will definitely be back!
