Travelled Sept 28 2017 for 1 wk. Been 30 yrs since been in the DR. 9 in our group adults and teenagers Our trip to Cuba was cancelled by hurricane and we ended up at the Gran Ventana. We were not disappointed. Rooms great, buffet was good actually didn’t find it any different to Cuba food. Staff excellent, Beach fantastic great to have coral reefs close to see all the pretty fish but do recommend paying extra for Premium Service it is worth it for private beach area and the VIP private lounge. Great place to relax drink premium drinks. JOSE, ALI awesome and VERENILE makes best Mai Tai. Small cozy property but this is great especially for families. Pool is nice but we spent most of time at beach. One complaint I do have is there is no island music or activities at the beach. When u r in the tropics the music gives u the feel. Some of shows could been little better but not a big deal.
ANTHONY at reception was fantastic. ROSA in buffet was a sweetheart AQUILIANO and AMABEL at beach are our brothers we love you ❤️ If u want to do excursions see JULIO at the beach he is the best and a great guy do not see anyone else. The waterfall trip is awesome Edwin at the beach selling beautiful bracelets they are worth the price. Gregory at the beach is your hook up for horse back riding in the mountains and beach been doing this for 40 yrs. Overall it was an excellent trip
