My wife and I chose the Royal Package, and we were not disappointed. From the time we arrived, right up until the time we left. Lets start with the arrival. Upon entering the resort, we were greeted with a cool refreshing cocktail. Immediately upon checking in, we were taken up to the "Vista Lounge" which is a perk for Premium... More

Our first room was 1322. It was quiet and we had a partial sea view. Unfortunately the area had experienced torrential downpours the previous week and continued off and on during our week. We had a small leak from the bathroom ceiling (roof direct above) our first full day & the 2nd day water appeared on the wall beside the... More

The food, the rooms, everything was so amazing but nothing beats the love attention and dedication of all the staff. Everyone here truly cares and made us feel like family. We want to take the time to particularly thank ALEX and CESAR for always keeping us happy and entertained. The group amazed us with their memory of our names and... More

This was my first time in the Dominican Republic. We stayed at this stunning hotel and I loved every minute. It's spotlessly clean and ALL the staff fall over themselves to be helpful. The main buffet had a different theme every day for a week, e.g. Mexican, Italian, Caribbean etc. But they had other choices too. The one downer on... More

We have just returned from a very wet 2 weeks in Puerto Plata. While the weather was a big disappointment this hotel was not! I have never stayed at such a friendly hotel staff work tirelessly and always have a smile on their faces. We decided fairly close to our departure date to upgrade to the Royal Package which I...

We had a family reunion here. This was my first experience at an all inclusive, which of course had different levels of ALL, several tiered levels for more money. Overall it was a good experience, but not enough so that we would return. Service was great. The beach is very windy in the afternoon so spend your mornings there and... More

Our second stay at Gran Ventana was even better than the first. We got to enjoy Fidelity Club benefits this time (the bottle of rum in the room was quite nice) and we also upgraded to premium. I highly recommend the upgraded packages if you plan to use Wi-Fi as it is considerably better than what is offered for free... More
