Our Opinion
A pleasant stay within the Varadero strip. Most of the resorts in Cuba are not very notable for their food. Unfortunately, it rings true for this resort, as there are limited choices with regards to food options, even at the buffet. However, if you're looking for a place that is situated near a beautiful beach with plenty of outdoor day excursion, this is the resort to visit. There are plenty of activities offered both within and outside of the resort grounds that would keep any traveler occupied. OK nightly entertainment. This is a resort that is suited for older travelers and couples, who are looking for a quiet place to relax in Varadero.
This 268-room property is set on the beach amongst tropically landscaped gardens. The friendly staff and tastefully decorated rooms will ensure that your stay is a relaxing one.

Location: On the beach, 20 minutes drive from downtown Varadero, 35 minutes from the airport, and 10 minutes from Las Americas Shopping Centre.

Get away

My husband and myself stayed at this all inclusive hotel for a week. The weather was nice but the water was too cold to go into. Last year we went in Sept. Near the end of the month. And the water was awesome. I mean bath water warm and really no waves. Love it then better than now as.i don't swim. The food we great in the main hall and the other 2 resturants had a combination of them all. Every day was different so if it said Italian. It maybe only 1 or 2 days out of the week that it would be the Italian the rest would be international, Cuban, Chinese etc. The food was real good though. They are closing to do renevations from May to Oct 2017 for 6 months. I think that they needed that as I did see 2 dark cockrochells and 2 fawn coloured ones. When I informed them about them they were quick to get rid of them. The bugs were only small but they were there in the food hall. I don't know if it was the time of year we went as we didn't see any bugs when we went in Sept. Or if it is dire need of renovations. They had done a far bit of renovations since last year. Newpaint, changed the slippery marble- for when it's the rainy season, the marble was like glass. ; put a new gazebo at the one end of the pool, and added more palpalas on the beach. It was a real in provement. I would go back again but I would take something to ward.of the No seeums as they were also horrible then. We had no trouble in Sept. But you can Google what to do for them little misquoto like creatures. Try not to itch them, you deserve.a.metal, because they get more itchy for awhile. Overall it was a great holiday.

great experience first time in Cuba

It's listed as a 4star. To us it was. We were told that the food could be bland, well it wasn't!! Great selection of food. The pool area(it was cleaned often) was fabulous as was the beach. We went on 4 excursions, the best 2 were the catamaran and the overnight to Havana. I think the only downside would be, if you like a coffee maker in your room it's not available here. Bring your own. We didn't need a converter for any of our electronics. The staff were great.

This place is AMAZING! the people who wrote a bad review about this resort expect way to much for the country that they were in!! The food was decent amazing hamburgers at the snack bar the buffet was always clean and had tons of choices! The room we had was clean the mattresses were newer you get 1 huge bottle of water and you can fill it for free as many times as you want at any bar or the buffet. The people are AMAZING! they couldn't have been more helpful,kind,respectable etc! They go over and above to make you feel comfortable. (A small tip goes a LONG way as well!!) The beach was always clean! There's workers there to take your sun Lounger to where ever you want to sit and he brushes the sand off for you. The lifeguards are attentive and amazingly nice. The ocean was beautiful bathtub water. The pool was cleaned every morning and was also very nice. The nightly entertainment was amazing. It was something different every night. Examples.. water ballet? Michael Jackson, magic show different dance companies performing different dances. For a small resort I highly recommend it. They are closing down in may for 6 months to redo the whole resort.. so go next November and I gurantee you won't have a bad thing to say! I don't and it's not redone yet!!Thank you Be Live best experience of my life! I'll be back!

Amazing friendly staff

This resort was great. The staff were wonderful and very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to the dining room staff, especially Maria at the omelet station in the morning and the pescado at lunch. She was so warm and welcoming. My daughter and I felt like members of her family. Also the wait staff were very attentive especially Maria and Maylis. Love those two! The food was plentiful and good and the drinks excellent. The beds weren't that great but housekeeping was good. Nice grounds, good pool and fantastic beach make this a great place to stay. I will be back!

Cuba new love!

As I sit looking out at the first snowfall,I figured it was time to write my review of our recent trip to Cuba.As this was the first resort vacation my husband and I had taken we weren't sure what to expect. We usually go for tourist type vacations,history,things to do and see.We booked an all inclusive package with Air Transat. Firstly I must congratulate Air Transat on the flight experience.I've used them before on long haul flights,but this was first package. Fast,courteous service. On board snacks,not badOverall a pleasant experience. I think they have really upped their game as I've had bad experiences with them in the past.Enough of that,on to Be Live Turquesa! This is rated as a four star resort,I would say it is closer to a low three but wait...It was an amazing stay! The rooms are very basic but comfortable. The food was better than I expected,I went with low expectations.The main restaurant,a buffet has quite a decent selection of items. I was a bit disappointed with the a la carte choices.Mexican,Cuban and Italian. The system for booking them really needs an overhaul. The one hour window each day is not enough.The snack bar which is open when all else is closed makes an amazing pizza.What makes this resort special is its people!Such amazing friendly staff. I have a few shout outs to those who really made our stay memorableReinier in the buffet,Yaidel and Yanya at the 24 hour pool side bar,Maria with the infectious smile who made omelettes every morning.Alberto and Daemarys in the morning for that first cup of coffee.And Adiria,who makes a mean Mojito in the Lobby Bar.The beach is beautiful and when we went,it was not overly busy. I believe we just missed high season.If going to Cuba for the first time PLEASE do yourself a favour and read any of the websites dedicated to the dos and do nots,I don't have enough space!Any specific questions I would be pleased to answer.We took three excursions,as I said we are tourists, we took the hop on hop off into Varadero,a trip to Havana and an off road jeep speedboat excursion.I'll review these at another time.Adios for nowP.s the resort is slated to close May 2017 for major renovations.
