The charming Be Live Canoa offers a relaxing, casual atmosphere and friendly service on a magnificent white sand beach. Guests have a chance to indulge in a soothing massage and aromatherapy found at the hotel's own elegant Spa. Ocean lovers can explore coral reefs on a snorkeling trip to Saona Island. The Eastern National Park, located close to the resort, is one of the largest reserves of archeological relics of the Taino Indians and well worth a visit!
Location: Directly on the beach, near the fishing village of Bayahibe, 20 minutes from La Romana airport.

  • Moni K :
Top Notch Resort with Awesome Animation.

My friend and I stayed in the V.I.P. section and everything was just magnificent. The service and staff were outstanding. They worked very hard at providing splendid service. Loved the beach, swimming pools, the room and the resort as a whole. You can relax and be served all day. Or if you want to be entertained they provide plenty of really fun activities throughout the day. The animators worked very hard at keeping the guests happy. Especially, an animator by the name of Bubbaloo, a sweet young man who made children laugh with his acrobatic movements. Also an amazing dancer who made the dance lessons quite enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this resort and I'll be back again.

Disappointing stay

We stayed from Dec. 25th - Jan. 1st as a family of four. Pros: beautiful grounds with lots of birds, turtles and fish to see for the kids. Groundskeepers were always working hard to keep everything well-groomed. Beautiful beach with calm water, a few more rocks than we anticipated, but easy to navigate once you learn which sections are less rocky. The pool is great, bring floaties for younger kids. Very lively, music always playing. The beach bar is awesome! Eddie made us feel like family every day that we went to visit him. (Note: as of Jan. 1st, there seems to be a new charge of $15 per person to stay at this "vip" area.)Cons: Food: Upon arrival and check-in, they will give you the option of booking 3 reservations for the a-la-carte restaurants. A-la-cartes are nice to eat at. The remaining nights, you are stuck eating at the buffet. The buffet is beautiful to look at, however it is extremely crowded and the huge selection of unpalatable food leaves one walking around with an empty plate trying to decide which is the best of the worst. We were very shocked at the food quality and taste (we are NOT picky eaters at all). The line up for the omelets in the morning tells you that that's about the only food that is eatable. Our 5 year-old spent 48 hours with food poisoning from the chicken at the buffet. We spoke to others who also got it from the same meal. Make sure you bring your Gravol and Immodium! Drinks: gross! Many of their "versions" of mixed drinks taste like they mixed ice and some dollar-store version of Koolaid together. My husband thought the beer was fine. Rooms: We booked our room 9 months in advance, and did not receive the room we booked. We ordered a Superior Deluxe, 2 doubles, and got a king with a small cot in it. It took almost 2 days, several calls and finally a request to the Sunwing Rep to get an extra bed for our second child. The room was dated and furniture was sparse and damaged. Also, we requested extra towels, pillows (as we only had 3 and the "decorative" pillows were literally as hard as concrete) and blankets (our child only had a sheet) and it took them several days and several calls to bring them as well. A note (in broken Spanish) to our sweet housekeeper, Carmen, letting her know our child was sick, seemed to get things sent to our room more quickly.Other: This resort caters to Europeans and French Canadians mostly. (Don't expect most people to wait in lines; expect lots of smoking everywhere). There is a section that seemed to be some sort of Italian time-share. The kids club girls were kind and tried to include our 5 and 8 year-olds, but then proceeded to speak in French, Spanish and Italian for most of the time, so our kids didn't want to participate. Watch your stuff! Someone took one of our towels off our chair as we went for a walk, and our little one's swim goggles went missing. You have to pay $25 ($3.50) a day for the safe lock and key rental.

Be Live Colelction Canoa December 2016

I love this place, beautiful beach, hotel is nice placed in beautiful garden. We stayed in building 4, room was o.k., any problems didn't occurred. Food was good, a lot fruits and a lot of fishes and sea food, exactly what I love and what I expect from vacation in such hotel. From services we tried tenis lessons and fitness lessons, both were good and especially fitness lessons with amazing fitness instructor "Dario Malabar" were great! I really liked my vacation in this hotel and I hope I will come back soon :-)
