Be Live Experience Hamaca Suites

Reviewed January 9, 2014

Be Live Hamacas in Boca Chica is a great beach hotel that offers excellent value for the money. It also has good restaurants close by and it is only steps away from the lively Duarte Street that has many cafes and it is teaming with a local life. We enjoyed exploring Boca Chica on a scooter (pasola) rented from a place around the corner from the hotel. $55 excursion to Catalina island beach was a great snorkeling experience and diving with air tank for $65 was a lot of fun. We will definitely go back!

My wife and I just got back from Boca Chica. Our stay at the Hamaca Resort was a nightmare: the conditions can best (and truly) be described as "insalubrious" and "unsanitary". We were led to a room that did not-at-all match the description and photos posted on the web-site. Both patio doors to the balcony were broken. The bathroom was filthy and had no towels. No bottled water. Floor was dirty. We spent much of our time not eating or eating out at more expensive places. The washrooms had broken soap dispenser, broken towel dispensers. The beach was constantly littered, even in the morning. We left 5$ tip for the maid every morning but each time, always something missing: towels, floor not cleaned etc. We have engaged legal action with the service provider. We will never return or frequent any Be Live hotel.

Room Tip: It would seem that their are newer rooms on third floor of the Beach Hotel. And I was told also that...

We had blackouts all the time; management doesn't care at all; staff is friendly but they do not have much to work with..Filthy rooms; food is terrible; drinks aweful; This place felt like a refugee camp...The only good thing was the Beach, sun and the pool...We spent as much time outside as possible because the inside was aweful!!! There are a bunch of better resorts in DR...Please skip this place!!! If u have children really skip it because it's full of prostitution too...

At arrival 7:20pm. Went through 2 different rooms, until we decided to upgrade to a "better room" for an extra $210. As the rooms they were giving us were filthy. The upgradet room still had problems - mould, dirty beds, leaking ceiling, water on the floors, no water pressure in shower. We were so tired and hungry (travelling with 4 year old) that we decided to stay. 10:15pm - Barely made it for dinner. The food was HORRIBLE. There were locals being let in to the resort pools and buffet. We noticed them putting food in to plastic bags. They would get preffered service at the bar. They occupied the pools early in the mornings and were loud. All This was unbelievable...
The kicker though - The hotel staff ignored complaints about the water leak in our room 3 times. No one fixed anything. 3 days later my wife slipped on the wet floor in our room causing an injury to her tailbone(she was crying from the pain-alot of trauma) that prevented her from getting out of bed for the duration of the trip. We are now back and spending time and money on a chiropractor. This was a nightmare of a trip, caused by overall negligence and lack of customer service.
Don't waste Your TIME - MONEY. GO SOMEWHERE ELSE. NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBE THE ANGER WE FELT STAYING THERE.
Talked to other people there. Most were extremely dissatisfied...

Save your money!
Don't waste your time staying at this resort. We stayed at this resort for New Years. From the day we checked in we had major issues.I had to beg the maid to get me toilet paper because my room literally had NOTHING!

The food was terrible! The only thing good about this hotel is the clean hotel grounds. THATS IT!

On the second day of our trip we were moved to another room, which had the same conditions.

If you have a baby and need a crib. Lord help you because the crib I recieved had a leg missing, the sheets were all stained and dirty.

Also this is the first resort I've been to that doesn't have free wifi at least in the lobby! Don't expect any beach towels without a deposit!

Basically this hotel isn't up to anyone's standards.

Now this isn't the Ritz, don't get me wrong but for $55.50 per day (All you can eat, all you can drink, free nightly entertainment, Room, beach pools etc...) The Staff was sooo excellent for us and I really wish I could remember the girl at the customer service that took such great care of us as well as Pedro. The great thing about this place and area (Boca Chica) is that you can leave the resort and walk up Duvall street for some extra scenery but be careful of pick pockets and don't bring the kids.
