We (couple in their 40's) will be traveling with our two teen girls (16/17) and are considering both the Be Live and Catalonia for our August trip, only six weeks away. We visted the Wyndham Palace next door two years ago and all of us enjoyed it. We are "beach" outdoor types that have been exposed to the caribbean, having lived on St Croix (USVI) for approximately 8 years. We have concerns for the teen girls being "bored" during our two week stay. They enjoyed the late night disco when we vacationed in Punta Cana (Barcelo Premimum in Arena Gorda).
Also, I saw the Catalonia lists two hotels on their web page, "La Romana" and "Gran Dominicus", both in the same location. Both show the same restaurants and room descriptions and have the same pricing.
Great price to LRM right now, much better price then PUJ or SDQ ... flying from DFW.
