What We Love

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

    Don't bother with vip

    My husband and I did pay for the upgrade, what we got is a down grade. We arrived around 3\3:30, did not get our room till after 5. It was rainy when we arrived so the water in our 3rd floor room I blamed on leaky roof. But by the 2nd and 3rd day I assumed it was the air conditioner,they fixed it by putting a rubber bottom mat down. Our room was just standard, the bath shower combo was awful the water shot every which way. Granted our room was ocean view which I asked for because I booked deluxe(not deluxe by any standards) adult ocean view. But all the beach parties happened right by our unit. The food was ok didn't starve, but cats begging everywhere. The beach was very rough for most of our stay, not the best side of dominican.

    Lots of water in my VIP room!

    We have travelled to Punta Cana many times over the last dozen or so years and this was our first experience trying out Puerto Plata! Unfortunately, we will never travel to this section of the DR again! We bought on price this time and really paid for it! Our VIP room at the Be Live had its very own water attraction in the room. We had a actual river flowing from the patio door across the room and down our hall out the door. The AC also worked about 50% of the time and just added to our little river attraction! The food worst we have ever had as the resort is older and does not have the ability to refrigerate the buffet as the more modern resorts in Punta Cana. My advice get there early before the food has been sitting out to long. Lots of rain but to be expected as you are in the mountains. Still got 4 really good days of sun and really enjoyed those ones to the fullest.

    We have to say that we have been to the best resort in 13 visits to the Dominican. But the best restaurant is the Mylos with the most amazing service from Joel CID, baldemora,Christian,cordero,alex,y joselina.

    Trip with the best friends

    We stayed at the Be Live hotel. Nice hotel. Uncle Frank is amazing he upgraded our room with a king sized bed and ocean view. If you have a problem he makes dreams come true!!! He will be inquiring about buying an espresso machine and talking to the pool entertainment staff. It’s a quiet hotel but the night shows and Disco is a must do!!
