VH Gran Ventana Beach Resort Puerto Plata Reviews

Perfect for a Low Key, Mature Type Vacation Jan 17, 2013
Very Clean, compact resort. Sort of an odd 3.5-4 star resort.

Rooms were large, simple, clean.....beds like a board.

Resort is perfect if you have mobility issues.

Everything seemed to roll up around 11pm so not for parties.

Food was good, something for everyone

Staff, generally helpful and cheerful

Beach vendors a little. Too much. Bug you even when you are sleeping.

Resort does list pretty highly priced for what you get.

I would possibly go back when I am 60+

Beware of Planes! Sep 08, 2008
The hotel looks very nice in the brochure. Our travel agent also told us she had a couple booking this hotel for years. So we took the chance.

The hotel was as the pictures, very nice and clean. Only diadvantage was that it was right below the flight route, meaning planes ate least 2 times an hour flying low.

The rooms were like the pictures as well, 2 queen size beds, bath, mini bar (that was included! so it was filled every day with small bottles of Coke, Fanta, Water and beer).

The food wasn't that great, many of the same. Breakfast was okay....

The animation team was very annoying, didn't take no for an answer; the night shows were lousy and the lack of spirit in them was making me crinch.

The hotel lies on a resort park, with several other hotels, a little mall and some restaurants: very nice for a walk outside the hotel.

What bother me that we arrived there with some guests, that came there at least twice a year and they were getting all egards, fresh juice, late check out etc, fast check inn etc, but we were barely looked at.

Just a Ps to your observation on
"What bother me that we arrived there with some guests, that came there at least twice a year and they were getting all egards, fresh juice, late check out etc, fast check inn etc, but we were barely looked at."

I did my research and I found that by your second stay, they will treat you like that!! They roll out the red carpet but your 1st visit, staff does seem a little standoffish.
For Us bottom line on this resort, nice, celan place if you dont want to walk too much and just want to relax but ensure that your room does not face into any of the pools or you will be kept awake lol- I too would give this property a 3 of 5 stars for almost every aspect the resort preformed like a 3.
