Stayed here for a family holiday with all the kids and some friends who joined us, this was a good choice for all of us and the hotel was more than big enough to cater for everyone's tastes and needs. Pools kept the kids busy, beach time was great as the location is perfect white sand and turquoise water. Rooms were great and of a good standard, restaurants and bars are also of an excellent standard with a wide choice of menus. This really exceeded our expectations and we hope to return soon.

We were at the VH Gran Ventana for the week of April 3rd. The resort is on a smaller scale, but this is what I enjoy the most. The resort is well maintained, the buffet restaurant is very nice, well kept and the food was very good. No complaints at all. For lunch, most of the time we would eat at the Ocean Grill; they had amazing chicken wings. We ate at all three A la Carte Restaurant and our favorite was the Italian restaurant for it's steak. They made an amazing steak. The service was ... Read more

I'm not one to write bad reviews but in this case I feel like I have to protect others from experiencing what I experienced. I thought I was safe because there were an overwhelming amount of positive reviews however the negative reviews were spot on. Probably the worst part was the constant peddlers on the beach. You could literally not go more than five minutes without someone coming up and trying to sell you things. The wine is undrinkable as I read in other reviews (taste like it's probab... Read more

We stayed at the Gran Ventana from April 12 thru the 25 2016 in room 3208 which overlooks the Quiet Pool, the rooms are spacious clean and comfortable, the king sized bed is firm without being hard and there is always lots of hot water! The weather in week one was spectacular with highs of around 29 in the day time and about 20 at night (no need for the air conditioner) which was very quiet and works well. It is a bit of a walk to the buffet and the main pool and the beach but we are never in m... Read more
