Time of OUR LIVES

First and foremost, this vacation at VH Gran Ventana was the BEST! We were a group of 6 women (Betsy, Mari, Michelle, Aracely, Clary, & Angie) and couldn't have picked a better place to stay at. For two of us it was the first time in the Dominican Republic and we must admit we were not disappointed. The food was delicious and and a variety every day. Breakfast, Lunch & especially diner was great! The bartenders were so very polite and treated us with the utmost respect. Our room was 2164, our friends were 2341 & 2349 and the room service was amazing. Every day we would find a flower, rose, or a towel made in a shape of a flower. Everything in our room was spotless. THE ENTERTAINMENT CREW was the BEST OF THE BEST!!!! They made us feel welcome and at home. It's because of them that we were not only pleased with our stay but planning our return to VH Gran Ventana! We specially want to thank - CARLOS, SHORTY, WILSON, BONJOVI (JOEL), & DELFY!!! Thank you guys for such an amazing experience in the Dominican Republic. It's because of you and many other staff members that made us have the best time of our lives.

Pleasure

The VH Grand Vantana Beach Resort was great, they make it very fun for people so they stay there. There are plenty of activities to do there. Now on the other side. Make sure you don't rent a car, just take a cab or something. People will say anything to see you smile. When you go in the malls or something, make sure you have pesos on you because when they see you have dollars they just want more and more. The place is very corrupt, and I mean very corrupt so on small note, just go with someone from the resort and let them deal with locals or such.

was dissapointed

First room was the worst, right outside a taxi stand , no security lock, and the delivery trucks all used the same driveway, but after the first night they moved us.Food in the buffet was not very good , over cooked. The people who help book day trips were the worst. The staff for the hotel were nice. I will never go back.

Spring Break Family Vacation

Hotel met expectations for an all inclusive hotel. Buffet was good and varied. Although they advertise free Wi-Fi, it is only free in the entertainment area, to connect in your room it was an extra charge for each device. They also charge extra for in room safe, do not understand why, when they are not otherwise responsible for your belongings. Upgraded to VIP section at $30 per person per day, not sure it was worth the extra money, when the resort is not busy.
