Stayed Jan31-Feb7 with my wife. Later check-in due to almost 5 hour delay with Air Transat. Check-in was smooth and we stayed in building 3 on the ground floor overlooking a pool. This was a nice quiet area although a bit of a walk to the buffet and beach. The whole place

The Gran Ventana is a large resort. Hundreds of guests stay in two and three story buildings around a large pool which is more for wading than for swimming. The pool is surrounded by deck chairs, and in the middle there is kind of an “island” to which one can wade for a drink.

Please know that our Snack is always available up til 5:00 pm, so we are very surprised that you couldn't find any food at 3:00 pm.

Hello Very unlikely a great resort, but rather primitive in matters of that nature, best thing to do is go to the reservation desk early in the morning, it is off the main resort property but a short walk past the front resort door past the tennis courts. Most reservations are for 7:30 or 8:30, but the main buffet is a great place to grab a light snack and drink rather than starve. Enjoy your vacation, Benni

Usually the main buffet closes at 10:00. After that, I believe the salad bar is open in the main restaurant. I’m not sure what else is available. To be honest, that’s all I saw after hours.

"Get a ground floor room if you do not want to climb and go down stairs. There are no elevators."
"i have stayed in 2 different buildings and they we both good"
"No elevator to upper floors, stairs only. Area around the pool can be quite noisy at times."
"Make sure your mini bar cools as ours didn't"
"Try main floor as there are no elevators for 3 story building, open view excellent with a nice small patio/deck table & chairs."
