After having read the reviews on trip advisor for this hotel, I have to say they are relatively accurate. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. Our room was great. We had an ocean view room which was stunning. The air conditioning was more than adequate. The first night we were actually freezing cold! Luckily you can adjust it easily. The bed... More

Stayed at this motel with my mom just got home tuesday. We enjoyed the property, staff, food and rooms very much. I was a little concerned upon reading some poor reviews but there was nothing poor about our stay. Entertainment could be a little better but food was plenty rooms were clean and staff are very friendly. Best shopping for... More

My daughter and I spent the last week of November at this resort. The grounds, rooms and pool were kept very clean. Our room was fairly basic but had everything we needed. I asked at the desk for extra towels and they were at our room when we returned. The meals were varied and we always found a lot to... More

I travelled to Be live in early December. I travelled with friends. The resort itself was very nice and very clean. The staff always went out of their way to help and make sure you were having a good time. Do not listen to the negative reviews on here, I have been to many all-inclusives and this is by far...

We have just returned from a two week stay at the Grand Marien with friends. It is a very beautiful complex and incredibly clean. All of the staff were accommodating and pleasant to deal with. Unfortunately, my husband had some mobility issues while there and 95% of the time we would call for a golf cart to get from our... More

Spent 2 weeks at the Grand Marien the first 2 weeks of December. The resort was great. The rooms were very clean, food was wonderful and the staff were very good. December is not the best time to travel to Dominican as we had a few days of rain all day. I would recommend the resort if you want to... More

Despite the many negative reviews found online we booked this hotel. We were surprised with how nice it is in person. The pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the ocean and the cleanliness of the grounds. The workers work very hard, providing every guest with a great vacation to remember. The food is amazing! Tons of options, there... More

I was at Be live first week of December with a friend, my sister and her husband.. We all had lots of fun. Joel from entertainment was awesome, he made sure we are always busy when we were bored. Other guys and ladies from entertainment were very good, names we would like to mention are Michel Angelo, Louis, Deny, Mosquito,... More

Booked via Be Live's website with an option of checking out at 4pm rather than 12pm. This is a great option since I was able to have lunch and relax. Resort is more about relaxing than a party atmosphere. Did see Iberostar next door had some night time beach dancing. Here are my pros and cons: Pros: - Pool area... More
