A stay in the Puerto Plata area on the north coast of the Dominican Republic affords you views of beautiful beaches against a verdant backdrop of mountains and hills.
The Gran Ventana Beach Resort All Inclusive benefits from this natural juxtaposition of sand and slopes with an oceanfront location inside the exclusive gated Playa Dorado complex. The complex is made up of 15 hotels, a golf course and a shopping center.
The Gran Ventana is one of the busiest resorts in the complex, with a mix of families and couples choosing to vacation here. The amenities skew toward the family-friendly with a zero entry freeform pool, a separate kiddie pool, busy kids club and nightly entertainment ranging from age-appropriate movies to magic acts to Michael Jackson tribute shows.
An airy and fresh lobby with white beamed ceilings and contrasting dark plantation shutters is bustling at all hours with families and older kids lounging and playing one of the board or card games.
Rooms are in three different towers, each spacious with bright color themes, which some may find cheery and others overwhelming. All have tile floors and marble bathrooms, soothing after a day of play in the sun.
Sticklers for meal times take note: The three a la carte restaurants require reservations, and you’re only allowed to eat at each once a week, which means longer-term guests will be doing a lot of buffet dining.
