Hospitality

Front Desk Staff, Restaurant, Guest Services, House Keeping really customer oriented. Great security, I have gone to Puerto Plata for the last 7 years in a row and stayed at various hotels in Puerto Plata Sunscape, Iberostar and Life Style. Nothing can compare to Be Live Collection this is the best hotel in Puerto Plata, great customer service and I have travel to different countries, I am a seasoned traveler and I know the difference. I will always stay there!!!

Best Vacation

It was so much fun. The staff was so nice and helpful at the resort. In particular Espaghetti and Tracey. They both were great and even danced and played pool and air hockey with us. The room was great except for the toilet which kept clogging but other than that the room was spacious and we had a great view of the pool. The resort was awesome and I would recommend it to anyone looking to have a great time. I would also recommend that you be weary of the Lifestyles Vacation Club people because they tried to get us to go to Lifestyles for a timeshare presentation but thankfully our concierge Felix from Amstar was aware of this and told them that we were not interested and to leave us alone. While there, there was a beach party at night and let me tell you it was fantastic. The food was okay but the restaurants that you have to make reservations for were fantastic. The only one I did not try was the Mediterranean place because I didn't bring pants and pants are required to get in. I also met a Canadian family while there and am in contact with them still. This resort is a great place to meet people who are for the most part kind and friendly. There are cats that roam around the resort to keep bugs and insects away and for the most part they are friendly. All in all this resort is a great place. The people who go there are on the older side but there are still some teenagers and younger people but it is mostly filled with upper aged people but lucky for me the Canadian family was there with there teenage kids so we met them and became friends.The Be Live Collection Marien was a great resort and as I keep stating I would definitely go back there again.

Great Resort

The resort is great. The employees are very nice. Specifically I would like to thank Espaghetti and Tracy. They were very kind and played pool and different games with me. The only bad part about the hotel room was the toilet as it got clogged very easily since the water pressure was very low. Other than that I would 100% go back to this resort. I had a great time and it was a blast. Harry and the drive who brought me to and from the hotel were also great and really made me have a wonderful trip. Thanks again to all of the people that made my vacation a fun experience and one I will remember for the rest of my life.

Last minute vaca success!

My husband and I planned a last minute getaway and the all inclusive, plus airfare rate from cheapcarribean Was too great to pass up. Positives: the resort was tropical and clean. The service was always lovely, not too pushy but always accommodating. I read in other reviews that it was difficult to get a seat at the pool but we never came close to having that problem! The pool was clean and welcoming, as was the pool bar! Although it is not swim up, it is right out of the water. The beach entry was clear and easy to get to, the snack bar was close enough if you wanted to head back and forth for drinks. The locals selling at the beach were policed by the hotel security and they never came up from the shoreline unless beckoned. Nobody was pushy and everyone was helpful. The dining options were fine. There are 3 nicer restaurants that require reservations with decent food, what you’d expect from all inclusive and there is a continual buffet restaurant with assigned seating and very cozy accommodations. None of the restaurants have air conditioning as they are all open to the outdoors. The room was comfortable, the ‘mini bar’ had a bottle of water, bottle of soda, and two mini coors lites. With a note on the second day asking for more beers they were happy to oblige. Negatives, while cleaning the rooms the doors are left open which are motel style so they open to the outdoors. There were many mosquitos and we got eaten up at night! The tv was shotty at best with only two English channels that kind of worked. Drinkwise the cups were small plastic cups, think water fountain cups, not larger glass or plastic but you could get as many as you want and that really isn’t too bad. My biggest gripe was WiFi. They only have WiFi in the lobby area and lobby bar. It is only free for one hour unless you complain then they sign you into their WiFi unlimited but still only works in this area. There is a booth you can pay $25 to have unlimited WiFi anywhere the whole time you’re there but that was a bit of a rook to me. This annoyed me more than anything else, I want to Snapchat or instagram my beautiful trip but can’t. Overall it was a decent 3.5 star resort. Exactly what we needed. Clean, and basically all you want from all inclusive.

What's to Love

Situated on a great stretch of beach and away from the main Costa Dorada complex, so it feels a little more secluded.

 

What We'd Change

Getting a pool lounger during the day can be hard unless you get one early in the day, so rise and shine!

 

Why You Should Go

It's only a short cab ride from the entertainment that Playa Dorada offers. The hotel has a great selection of restaurants and some good entertainment for the evenings.
