    Great Staff!

    What truly made our experience at the Gran Ventana special was the hospitality and kindness of Bruno! Bruno is one of the employees of the resort and he went above and beyond to show us a great time! He took us on a private bike tour, hosted Bingo and the volleyball games in the pool! He would always check in on us to make sure we were having a great time! If you go to the resort, please connect with him! He will make your trip worthwhile.

    This is my tenth time coming to this resort. We absolutely love the resort. The staff are incredibly friendly, they make us feel like family. The food is delicious. The beach is wide and clean. The pool is well maintained. The rooms are well maintained. Our friend Juan Carlos is an awesome entertaining manager. We will be coming back to the Gran Ventana in February 2024. We would like to make a shout out to Augustin, Raul, Elbi, Luis Miguel, Luis, Amable , Juan Carlos and his animation team for making our vacation special. Until next time we Love You 😘

    Vacation at Gran Ventana

    This was a lovely place. We were on the second floor on the back so it was quiet at night. The food was good and the staff were so wonderful. The only drawback I would say would be the entertainment. There was really nothing that we decided to go and see, the beach is great. You can walk for miles and the rooms for very comfortable. The place is really well run and the staff are friendly and treated us so well. We talked to many couples who had been there several times before I would go back there.
