I was worried for nothing...

I was hesitant to stay at this location based on other reviews but I throughly enjoyed myself for the duration of my trip. Being a young adult (25) went on this vacation with a close friend and we had a blast. The staff were always pleasant and we never found ourselves bored. It’s no Ritz Carlton but with limitless drinks and spending most of your day in the pool, who cares?! After a week of being home I’m already looking to book my next trip and when I do I’ll definiely be looking to book at this resort. Thanks Be Live Marien and all your employees for a fantastic first trip to DR! See you soon.

Good Value Resort With Some Problems

My criteria for this trip was to find a value priced resort with a nice beach and pool and decent food and drink. Overall, Be Live did meet that criteria. Things I liked: 1. Beautiful sandy beach. It gets very windy in the afternoon but you will rarely feel hot. 2. Large pool and nicely landscaped grounds. The mountain behind the resort provided a beautiful backdrop. 3. The size of the resort is just right. It's not too big or too small. It's an easy walk to wherever you want to go. 4. The staff was very pleasant especially the bartenders. 5. The food and drink were for the most part decent although not great. Things I didn't like: 1. The Dominican themed buffet was unpalatable. In fact, I was up most of the night with diarrhea which thankfully resolved on its own. 2. The ladies at the front desk during the day spoke such poor English it was very hard to communicate with them. 3. I used the jacuzzi in the room. Apparently, it caused a pipe to leak. After checking my room, they proceeded to shut the water off to my room without telling me. I discovered this in the middle of the night. It was my last night in the resort so there was no shower for me in the morning before departing. I had to use the pool bathroom to clean up. 4. There weren't enough public bathrooms. Only one by the pool and one at the beach. They were hit pretty hard all day, every day. 5. The internet access here was terrible. Only 15 hours per week of dependable free wifi. I asked if I could purchase additional wifi but they said I wouldn't need it as there was always free wifi in front of the buffet. The problem is that it was very hard to get on it and you would get bumped off without notice. I had to manage an unexpected family issue back home and the lack of dependable internet was a real issue for me. For this reason alone, I wouldn't stay there again. 6. The gym is a joke. The electronics on the cardio equipment were non-functional and it was too warm and humid there. I went once and didn't go back. I think this is a decent resort that could be better with some small improvements. I wouldn't stay there again but I rarely go to the same place twice. Still, for the rock bottom price I paid, it met most of my needs and I did have a week of glorious warm, sunny weather.

Be live; Be Catious

I don’t typically write negative reviews, but I must. First the positives: Frank in guest relations is excellent. Amstart offers excellent transportation and excursions. The beach is well cared for and wonderful. Spa staff is excellent. Great massages. Ponder before you book: if you aren’t VIP you are nothing. We upgraded while here and were still treated poorly. Too many promises unfulfilled. The pools are loud and obnoxious. You have to get up at 4am to get a covered chair. The staff really is quite unfriendly (in contrast to other DR resorts we have stayed at. The tennis pro and gym guys look down on anyone who isn’t a muscleman. My wife believes she got goodness’s poisoning two separate times. Food quality is very low. Lines to get a drink are 30-40 people long mid day. I will be back to the DR, but I will not stay at Be Live. Buyer Beware!

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.
