My family and I planned this trip in late May. After reading many, many reviews, we were somewhat nervous. But we wanted to be fair, and not judge by others but for ourselves. Now, where do I start? Check In Our check in did not go smooth at all. We purchased our voucher through Groupon which also stated an amount... More

We stayed here at the Be Live Grand Marien in July of this year - I was not sure what to expect with the mixed reviews. But overall, we had a great 7 days at this resort. We were greeted upon arrival with a nice cool drink - had a very quick check in and was taken by golf cart... More

Long story short , this place is definitely not great.. I'm not sure who is writing these reviews. The only reason I went here is because TripAdvisor recommended it but I was ready to leave after day 1. I stayed for 5 days and prepaid, otherwise I would have checked out. I have been to DR several times at all... More

We booked this hotel through Thomson for a two week family trip, in August. Arrival/ Check in: Very quick and smooth procedure. We were all given a cooling welcome drink on arrival, as well, which was much appreciated. The bell boy then took us, on foot, to our room, for the ubiquitous tip! Room: We had previously booked a superior... More

A late review here...we stayed in March. Overall, it was OK but we would not return. We did meet some great people and enjoyed our time - which helped make it a fun trip - but there are much better places to go. Food - not the best at all. The buffet was very repetitive, lacked flavours, low quality. After... More

This was our second time to the Dom Rep. We stayed here about 10 years ago. I have to say the place could do with a make over but the staff made up for it. Lovely atmosphere, didnt want to come home. Guaranteed sunshine and lots of fun. I will try the Iberostar next door if we go back again.... More

It was my first time going to the Dominican Republic and out of the U.S. We stayed December 26 2013- January 7 2014. The resort was about an hour/hour and a half drive from the airport in Santiago but it was great. The drive was a lot of fun and wasn't a hassle/uncomfortable at all. I loved seeing the different...

We visited this hotel from July 28th for 2 weeks with our two children aged 18 & 20. We have previously stayed in a number of 4 and 5 star all inclusive hotels so knew what to expect. Before arriving here I had read recent trip advisor reviews and to say I was a bit worried is an understatement. However... More
