    Wonderful Trip with the Micheline Group

    Took a trip with friends we were 16 going for the 1st time in Dominican Republic at Hotel VH Grand Ventana. We had a good time for the week we were there November 2nd to the 9th.. Hotel was clean, fridges were always filled never empty with drinks, also the food at the Buffet was good. The only think the hotel lacked is the shows only 2 in the week while we were there but for the rest was great. The Entertainers there were great thanks to Coco Loco for the morning Pool Arobics and Volleyball. Also thanks to to great guys Luis Alfonso & Juan Carlos for there great Entertainment. Friendly & curtious staff. Thanks for there hospitality.. The only negative thing to say is on the weekend the locals are allowed there at the hotel & it was packed, Buffet was full & also the pool hardly could get something to eat without getting tossed.
