Loved the beach, clean rooms, all onsite facilities, and the service! Wow the Dominicans will bend over backwards to ensure u have a great stay. My only advice is to improve the food. It is ok; however, it could be better with the ingredients already included in the dishes that are served. Sorry but I cook a lot and could... More

This was our second time at this resort separated by ten years. We enjoyed our stay in 2006 as our first all inclusive together however we don't recall it being so good. This time we brought along another couple to enjoy our vacation with. We upgraded our stay to the premium service and it was well worth the extra. The... More

If you asked any of the staff at the Gran Ventana, that is how they would answer, of course with a huge smile on their faces! From our wonderful, hard working waiters Jeffery, Felix Marting, and Soloman to our bellhop Jeffrey. My husband and I would agree with all the reviews we have read on this place. It was our... More

Great resort! I was surprised at how good the food was. Very clean and attention to detail. Beds are a little hard but rooms are cleaned daily to perfection. Highly recommended. Great Management, as they make sure that guests are taken care of in a prompt and proffessional manner. It also has the best beach of all the resorts.I would... More

This was our first trip to Dominican republic and it was great.The flight from Sweden was 11,5h but well worth it. Me and my girlfriend stayed from Jan 22 to Feb 4. We got a pretty good room with AC (working too cold for me) and a fan in the roof. Temperature was 25C at night and 30C in the... More

We stayed at this resort Jan 29- Feb 7th. The resort is much smaller than we are used to but everything close by. The buffet has nice food but poor service...lucky to get a coffee when you are almost finished eating...this was daily. Drinks are poor quality no Baileys liquor available so we brought our own. The resort is clean... More
