About VH Gran Ventana Beach Resort - All Inclusive

Lots of activities and great restaurants near Puerto Plata

A Puerto Plata paradise
VH Gran Ventana Beach Resort - All Inclusive in Puerto Plata puts you a stone's throw from Playa Dorada, a Robert Trent Jones golf course. The hotel has a lush landscape of flowering shrubs and tropical plants. Parking is free at the resort, located 8 km from Gregorio Luperón International Airport.

Snorkeling and sailing
This all-inclusive hotel treats guests to free 1-hour introductions to water sports like snorkeling and scuba. Landlubbers can try tennis and biking. If you're already seaworthy, offshore pursuits like windsurfing and sailing beckon off beautiful Playa Dorada.

Great places for dining
Food and bar choices abound at VH Gran Ventana Beach Resort - All Inclusive, where you can enjoy buffet meals at Las Almejas. Octopus offers gourmet seafood and Sapore di Mare satisfies Italian cravings. After a spell in the hot sauna, you can sip luscious libations at a swim-up bar or the poolside tiki hut.

Rooms with ocean breezes
Guestrooms have walkout patios or balconies that invite ocean breezes. Mahogany furnishings and ceiling fans enhance the tropical ambiance. When you come back thirsty from a strenuous workout, you can pull a drink from the minibar and relax with the flat-panel satellite TV.

VH Gran Ventana Beach Resort - All Inclusive
A lifetime memory.
This is a fantastic resort hotel. The architecture and design are beautiful. The staff is abundant, friendly & helpful. The food is an excellent blend of local and international cuisine. It is so well maintained and clean. If you have a problem here you are the problem. 1/2 hour west of the airport it is well located on the beach and 15 minutes from down town.

we enjoyed our stay at the hotel...access to free WI-Fi was an issue...Most hotels have better access to Wi-Fi . Grand Ventana wants to charge for access to Wi-Fi.. The free access that is available to everyone does not work is a horrible service ...Everything else was good.

Stay away
Messed up reservation - Had to pay almost double upon arrival. Paying wifi, a ripoff and doesn't even work correctly. Hotels restaurants supposedly fully booked and almost empty when you walk by them... When you ask a question at the front desk, their response: "you pay" with a beautiful smile.

Just right
This was my second stay at VH GRand ventana. From the beginning, we thought it was going to be a horrible trip since the hotel said my reservation was canceled by They didn’t even offer me a phone to call and figure out the problem. We had to pay international fees to use our cellphone. said it was the hotel that canceled. It took some time to figure out but no one accepted blame and it was very frustrating. The clerk was understanding of my obvious frustration and upgraded us to a jr suite. Things were good after that. The place is beautiful but the entertainment and shows could be better since they were the same exact as last time and the employees seems bored while doing their skits. The food could also use updating. But overall we had a nice time. I recommend for families and low energy people as you won’t be having a blast of a time. But definitely a very nice place
