We really enjoyed our visit to Gran Ventana. It's a nice size resort, not too big, which is what I liked. The food was great, buffet always had something for everyone! And the Octopus gourmet restaurant was fantastic!! The grill at the beach was great too! The pool was great, not too big. The beach was very clean. The resort was well kept, and our room was very clean! they were always cleaning! The bar guys were all great, always smiling, and knowing what you drink! Met lots of great people from all over.
The only problem I had, was I cannot lay on a lounge chair at the beach or pool. I would've liked some plastic chairs to sit on (especially at the beach) . So, I found myself standing alot.. I loved the evening entertainment, especially the dancing! I also enjoyed the games with the animation group. Sometimes there wasn't much to do, with the animation team, couldn't always find them.. I would like more music during the day. We went on the Cable Car outing, and really enjoyed it. Saw the Rum factory & more, & had a great Buffet lunch at the "Bamboo"! Loved looking at Puerto Plata from way way up! Our tour guide (Willian), was fantastic too. All-in-all I thought it was a great holiday! I have told lots of people & recommend it! Thaks GV!!
