We have stayed at Gran Ventana 5 times and, health and finances permitting, will go again next Februrary. This is the only all-inclusive we have ever encounterd so I can not offer any comparisons. I do feel that the service is excellent with a minor problem in that the chambermaids have very little English and my Spanish is even more limited. It took our tour hostess to get a minor repair effected in one room we had in 2001 but in 2002 we had absolutely no problem with the room. We had requested the same room by email and it was held for us.

My wife does not move about too much any more and spent a lot of time in the lobby outside the cafeteria reading or doing handcrafts. Many staff members would stop by for a brief chat or to see if there was some service they could offer. The food in the caferia was so good we seldom used our tickets to the specialty restaurants.

I stayed at the Grand Vantana and it was alright, the entertainment was good but the rooms were very dirty. The staff brought two young girls to the disco who they then lost and left there. Let me add the disco was filled with cocaine, guns, knives, sex, prostitution. So I advise if your going to to stay at this resort watch out for Julio and Pepe they brought the girls there

This will be our secound trip back to Grand Ventana. We picked it for our secound trip as it was a wonderful place with great food and service. It does take one or two days to get ones bearings. Once you figure our how everything works , you will run the place. Malaria is not a real concern unless you plan to do alot of back country exploreing. You can get pills from your Dr will not many side affects to ease your mind. The tours are great and the Rum is fantastic. Nothing but good things to say and DR and Grand Ventana. Rick

My family and I are leaving on Mar.16/05 for the dominican.We are staying at the Gran Ventana.I was wondering about any pills or shots that need to be taken prior to as we have heard many conflicting stories about hepatitis and malaria down there.

My son is getting married at Gran Ventana on March 31st/05. Has anyone had a wedding there? We would like to get some information as to what to expect when we get there. What the wedding was like, cost, etc. There are about 40 people who will be attending this wedding. Any problems you may have encountered.

Stayed in October 2003 and had a wonderfuly holiday.
Great hotel with good accomodation and very friendly service.
Hotel is located with a large complex of hotels so plenty to see and do within the confines of the complex. Also had no problems or qualms about venturing further afield and always felt save.
Exceptional value for money (beats Europe hands down), especially if you have kids as well!
Already booked to go back in July 2005 with 2 other families so really looking forward to a great holiday next year.

hi guys!

our first vacation ALONE in years!! we are going in July of this year (2004). im so pleased with the reviews, however, i was wondering if there is anything other than stated that my husband and i should know about. we were told there is NO TAX in D.R. is this the case?
How far are casinos? and do you have the "tendency" to be ripped off?

anything as far as info is greatly appreciated!

all the best~

It is very good for weddings too! they aranged everything nicely! the flowers were lovely!

I stayed at this wonderful resort in September, 2002 and found the food and service to be excellent. The room was very clean as well was the whole resort. I would stay here again and I think you should too!

What can I say other than it was the best holiday of my life so far. The accomodation was second to none and the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The hotel along with the setting was perfect and the food was excellent. Both my husband and myself cannot wait to go back and have started saving already
