Fabulous 8.8 From 82 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Everything was perfect until the last night. We came to our room about 7:30 pm. To a constantly barking dog. I immediately went to the front desk and spoke to security. 30 minutes later the dog is still barking. The owners had been notified but were not responding to messages. The Security Team did not seem to have a sense of urgency about the situation. About 45 minutes later the owners of the dog came back to their room and the dog stopped barking. Dogs do not belong at an adult facility like Ventana. I have an extremely well behaved dog but would never bring to this type of facility. Very disappointing. To the management’s credit when I checked out the next day they were very apologetic and embarrassed about the way security had handled the situation and have offered a credit for our stay. Great job of turning a definite negative into a positive outcome.

Fair 4.0
Room 22.
The toilet wouldn't flush. We were told to not flush toilet paper and that the basket beside the toilet was for soiled toilet paper. I called the front desk to confirm that this was correct. We never recieved a streight answer. We chose to fill a waste basket with water to pour into the toilet to get it to flush, rather than doing it their way. We couldn't get it to stop running after flushing unless we went into the back and adjusted the float. That was only one thing. There were many disappointments. We were going to stay longer and decided to leave after just one day.

Very nice if you can afford it.
The Ventana was a wonderful place to stay. The resort was beautiful, the service was very nice and the food was wonderful. There were only three things that I surprised me and I would suggest could be changed. 1. It would be helpful to have soft and cozy slippers for the cold bathroom and entry floors rather than the hard rubber massage slippers as the latter are not enjoyable to wear in the night. 2. For a State that often talks about conserving water, to have a toilet without a lid is not appealing for those of us who conserve water in that way. 3. The massage I had was okay and the massage therapist was very nice but it could be improved with more silence and less talking.
