Victoria Golf & Beach Resort advice

Hello,we are traveling next week to Victoria Golf & Beach Resort we are a family of 8 with 4 young adults including 2 teenagers,I am a bit concerned about the lack of activities for our children although the hotel will certainly suit us older ones.

We booked with thomas cook over the phone and we were told its A/I Dom rep 4 star,with us going to Dom Rep 3 times in the past I thought it would suit all our needs,I have heard it has a sister hotel the Gran Ventura. can we use the facilities including ala carte entertainment ect.I have read reviews about the hotel and they are all positive so we are all excited about our holiday.

thanks in advance

Yes you can use all facilities next door at the Gran Ventana, including the A La Cartes and entertainment,so your teenagers will not be bored. Read these reviews.

Went to the gran ventana 2 yrs ago, went back last year and found it to be a bit too noisy and changed to the victoria, i would suggest once you arrive if the young ones find it too quiet ask to be moved as Marlyn at reception is a star, i personally would have booked the gran ventana given the ages of the party as the victoria is really laid bck.

You should check your brochure - kids are welcome at Victoria. Blue Bay is the only adult only north coast AI resort.

Whilst the Victoria is not strictly adult only, you rarely see kids there.

It is really quiet these days, but the staff are great and the 8 of you will make you own party! and yes you can now use the gran ventana's facilities, and to be honest in the daytime you may welcome the peace of the Victoria- I love it there!
