Just came back last night from a 7 day stay. I'm a Cuba fan but wanted to try somewhere different. I'm so glad I did. The place itself is breathtaking. From the lobbies to the pools and beaches. I was blown away. My first 2 nights were a little noisy as my room was beside the barrier where security allowed...

This was the first vacation that I've ever been on and I'm so grateful that I got to spend five days in paradise with my family. The moment we arrived in the Dominican to the last second we departed was so perfect. The resort was absolutely beautiful and we were so lucky to have such amazing weather for our entire...

This is an outstanding all inclusive. The facilities, pool area, and beach area were incredibly clean ... and they obviously worked very hard to keep it that way. For the buffet, we were very impressed ... for lunch/dinner it was obvious that they put in a lot of effort to provide different dishes and sides each day. This was no...

Just spent a week here. Not the greatest weather, but that is not the resort's fault and I don't hold it against them. As a matter of fact, one very wet afternoon when everyone was inside for a couple of hours, the resort sent a bottle of rum and fresh fruit up to our room, I imagine to help keep...

Traveled here with my mother - sort of a reset for her after the loss of her husband. I haven't done an all inclusive in a while as we have been cruising recently. I will try to break down my review: 1) Beach - best in the area. Soft sand, palapas, a big reef to break the surf. We enjoyed...

Let's list the cons: 1. Smoking all over the resort including the beach. Cigarette buds were all over the sand. No consideration for the number of children there. There was a thanks for not smoking sign in the entertainment area but ashtrays on all of the tables. 2. Well overdue for an upgrade. The amount of money to stay there...

Ratings : Room 0/5. Food 3/5. Service 4/5. General 2/5 From our arrival at Gran Ventana we were disappointed with this resort. Our room was very small, and was the only one we have encountered in a number of Caribbean trips that did not have a seating area.There was one chair in the room. The bathroom was bad. The tub...
