Fun-Filled Family Vacations in the Recently Renovated “Gran Ventana” Beach Resort, Puerto Plata
The 538-room “Gran Ventana” Beach Resort, situated in Puerto Plata’s Playa Dorada resort complex, was recently renovated.
The hotel announced that 363 rooms were completely redecorated, as well as the “Mercado Las Almejas” Restaurant, situated next to the pool area.
The hotel also opened the Vintage Club, an exclusive area for Royal and Premium package guests, with access to an exclusive beach area.
Situated in the hotel lobby is an impressive circular fountain which magically brings together water and earth as the hotel’s main elements.
Upon reaching the lobby guests will immediately feel the relaxing breeze that circles the area, as well as the main swimming pool and lush gardens.
A path leads guests from the garden area straight to the beach, the beach bar and the “Caracol” Beach Club, featuring a variety of snacks and daily specials.
The hotel’s name – “Gran Ventana” (Large Window) – reflects the possibility of seeing the nearby sea right from the lobby area.
The “Mercado Las Almejas” buffet restaurant, situated right next to the swimming pool, has been completely renovated and offers guests a friendly and modern atmosphere.
But, there are also three a la carte restaurants: the “Octopus” Gourmet Restaurant, with a distinct Caribbean menu; the “Ocean Grill,” a seafood and steak restaurant, and the “Sapore di Mare” Italian restaurant.
The “Octopus” restaurant provides such favorite Caribbean dishes as the Rum Goat; the Caribbean Salmon with Cashews; the Mango Chicken Breast; Beef Tenderloin with Green Peppers; Venezuelan “Tequeños;” Chicken Mofongo (mashed green plantain), and Seafood Stew. The restaurant’s top desert: Crepe Suzette topped with vanilla ice cream.
Guests have an interesting option to upgrade their stay at the hotel. By paying a little more they can obtain the Royal Package and/or Premium Package where they can have access to the exclusive Vintage Club.
The Club pampers its privileged guests by providing personalized attention, a permanent concierge to attend the needs of the guests.
They also have access to the lounge bar, offering an intimate space where they can enjoy Premium drinks, tasty hors d’oeuvres, sandwiches and pastries, in a charming vintage setting.
On the beach the club has an exclusive area featuring Bali beds and wooden lounge chairs, attended by permanent waiters.
The 538-room facility, 363 of them offering excellent seaside views, has been redecorated with new furnishings.
Six bars complete the offer, where guests can enjoy tropical cocktails and drinks.
The hotel provides guests with plenty of sports activities: bicycling, snorkeling, windsurfing, tennis, scuba clinics, a fitness center and sauna, day and evening entertainment and access to the Playa Dorada golf course, a bank, beauty salon, various shops and baby-sitting services.
