Really enjoyed our stay. Beds were a little too hard, but I wanted sun more and that I got 14 days of it entertainment was good 2 out of 7 days the first week and it was a repeat the second week. Good food. Loved the Ocean Grill and liked the Italian restaurants. Did not care for the octopus restaraunt.... More

This was our second time to this hotel and our third to the region. The other hotel we stayed at 3 years ago was the Blue Bay. We much prefer this hotel. We went for the first time in Sept Oct last year. We arrived 22nd March and stayed 2 weeks. The staff were amazing, many recognised us and were... More

Hi....we stayed at the Ventana the week of March 4-11th and were pleasantly surprised at the overall experience. We had heard that Puerto Plata wasn't as nice as Punta Cana where we had been a few times....ah, guess again! We loved it, and so did our friends(8 in our party). Everything from the beach to the rooms to the food... More

We had been told that this resort was $50 all-inclusive by someone who had just been there the week before. Our mistake was to just show up and ask for a room for one night. We paid $368 for myself and two college girls who rarely have a drink. The front desk person was kind of snooty when I balked... More

I just returned March 21, 2011 from a 4 day stay at the Gran Ventana. I spent most of my time either in the mountains or underwater, so I didn't spend a lot of time actually at the resort, but I can share a few things I think you'll find "good to know". Your AC may or may not work,... More

My hubs and I were at the VH Gran Ventana from March 3-13 and had a great time. Here's how I break down the resort: Staff: Genuine, friendly, attentive, always working hard. Whether we were being seated at the buffet, grabbing a drink from the bar or walking by housekeeping, the staff always had a genuine smile to send our... More

I read through many of the reviews before going on this trip so I was fairly well prepared for what I was about to expect. I don't have many holiday experiences with all inclusive resorts, however this one measured up towards the top. The grounds were well placed, clean and the staff kept everyone engaged with the daily activities. The... More

We (my husband and I) along with my In-laws spent 9 days at this resort and I was pleased. The resort was very clean and the food was pretty good. I did miss some of the small amenities though, like FREE Wifi, Irons in each room, room service and a Jacuzzi in the resort. But like I said...those were just... More
