This resort does well with upkeep, maintaining the grounds and rooms in good condition. Everything was clean. The food was tasty and there was a sufficient variety of options. The drinks were not excellent, but a fairly standard offering for Puerto Plata all-inclusive resorts. The weather did not cooperate, however, again, that is par for the course in Puerto Plata,...

So, I took a look at all the reviews before going and just ignore the bad ones. There was one in particular, that goes on and on about how bad this place is; I can tell you it's not at all. We went 13-27 Jan and this was a great time to go because it wasn't busy. You didn't need...

Nothing but relaxing for us. What we wanted and just what we got, not straying from the complex. The resort was not too large, but full of chracter. Beach was stunning. Good pools, the normal one with activities galore, and the quiet one away from the main area, just superb. The staff were outstanding, nothing too much trouble and so...

We returned for our 5th visit, last was in April '11 and the first was in 2001. First of all, contrary to another review, this place is NOT "broken down". This resort is ranked #6 out 50 resorts in Puerto Plata for the right reasons. Since a large majority of guests are repeaters, it is a foregone conclusion that it...

I stayed here with my boyfriend in January 2012 for one week. Our first impression when we walked off the bus and around the resort was "wow".. Grounds and hotel itself is beautiful and very clean. We had a room in the saona building in room 1333. Great room, very clean, flat screen tv and even a sky light! Our...

The Gran Ventana Hotel is a very quiet resort which is what we were looking for. The resort is small and the service was great. The beach was amazing. You could walk for miles in either direction although walking to the Orange Market was my favourite. Takes about 25 minutes from the resort to get to the Orange Market but...

I didn't rate this hotel as terrible because there were some good points. The staff was wonderful. Anything they tried to help you with almost anything that you asked for. It's not their fault that the owners let the hotel get run down. Also, we stayed at the hotel Christmas week and while most other resorts have a shortage of...

I was at the Gran Ventana for 2 nights Jan 2012. All in all we had a great stay. The beach is right beside the resort. It is clean and it a great place to take a walk at night as there aren't too many people around. Playa Dorada feels safe as it is part of a gated resort complex....
