“Very pleased!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We were impressed with the grounds,rooms,pool, food (Japanese a la carte and Dominican night buffet very good)and especially the beach. The sunsets were beatiful..most of staff were great! May have slower service at lobby bar, but pool bar staff were great! Weather was a little cloudy and rain a few days but with sun, too!

We spent two weeks Jan.14-28 at our favourite hotel!! Our 5th visit. As always everything was wonderful...the room...the food...the beach!!! The service at this hotel is friendly and excellent...there is not a staff member who doesn't say hello when you pass them!! In the dining room for dinner each day we had the privilege of being served by the same waitress each night. She was so very friendly and paid attention to all of our needs that we felt at home. If you are going to this resort be sure to ask to be seated in the section of Marleny Valdez for dinners. You will be taken care of very well!! I certainly hope the management takes note and will make sure that Marleny is properly appreciated!!

i was there in Dec. 2012 for a wedding. the wedding was beautiful, couldn't have been any better. the hotel is very nice with many things to do . i found it to be very clean and the grounds were kept in excellent shape.
i have to commend the staff, everyone went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.
there is one person inparticular who works at the hospitality desk. her name is Leany Silvestre, i fell down the stairs, she heard the fall and came running to help right away. she helped me get up and insisted on taking me to the medical office. i didn't think it was anything serious i just wanted to get back to my room. she assisted me as i walked to my room and waited unitl i got in safely. she even called my room the next morning to see how i was feeling. unfortunately, whne i returned home, my knees were sore and they turned the most horrible black & blue i have ever seen. i should have listened to her and had a doctor look at it.
before leaving the next day, i went to find her to thank her again.
i don't know what i would have done had she not be there. she is certainly a wonderful representation of your hotel.

Firstly let me begin by saying IGNORE any bad reviews on here about this hotel, we were initially concerned about a few opinions we read but decided to take a gamble and it really paid off. The value for money is next to none, it's set in a beautiful location with amazing beaches, friendly yet unobtrusive staff, lovely rooms, great facilities and plenty of entertainment. I can't recommend this place enough, thank you Be Live Canoa! Xxx

Visited here using a discount coupon during the off season and it was a terrific vacation. Rooms were clean, food was very good with a wide selection to choose from. The beach was amazing. I had visited this part of the Dominican Republic before but stayed at a different resort.
What I found interesting was that my husband and I were practically the only American guests. There were many guests from Italy, Germany, Poland, France, etc. We started every day playing tennis and my husband really enjoyed rallying with the pro. We also played volleyball twice a day and the level of play was quite good. We tried all the specialty restaurants which we totally enjoyed. The animation staff was energetic and very warm and welcoming. We would happily return.

Bayahibe is a beautiful beach with clear water but has a lot of rocks. The mosquitos tend to come in the early evenings so take good insect repelent. The Be LIve Canoa is great if you are European and a heavy smocker. Not a place for young families. Many women walk around topless on the beach and the average age here is around 60. The rooms and food are average, nothing out of the ordinary but they do have better restaurants choices for dinner so make sure you make the reservations in advance because you don't want to be stuck eating at the boring buffet when you have other options. The Animation team is probably the best thing going for them. They are great! I went there to celebrate my husband's birthday and loved the long walks we had on the beach, watching the sunsets and kayaking.
