Our Opinion
Be Live Grand Marien is close to Puerto Plata and within walking distance of Playa Dorada, which has great shopping, entertainment and the Playa Dorada Golf Club. The buffet and specialty restaurants are good with lots of variety. Overall the resort has a generally relaxing atmosphere with a quiet beach area.

Overview
The Grand Marien offers a friendly atmosphere and cozy rooms decorated in a uniquely Caribbean style. Its fine facilities include a beautiful large pool and a lively 24-hour sports bar where guests can mingle and relax. Escape to the popular, golden-sand beach of Costa Dorada and immerse yourself in the clear blue ocean waves. 

Location: Beachfront in Costa Dorada, 20 minutes from the airport and 5 minutes from downtown.

Not worth my money

very disappointed with the stay overall......tables often were not ready, so the staff would sit you down at the table that has no napkins, no glasses, no cutlery. Rooms cleaned very late in the afternoon, always short on towels. Beach/ pool towels not available at all times. Power outage a few times. Finally, no water in the rooms or anywhere else at the whole resort (including the lobby) for a few hours. Absolutely disgusting!

Good time had by all !!

Just got home today from the Be Live Marien. It is a lovely resort. We would go back! The only complaint I have was the weather, it rained off and on all 7 days. For us the resort was everything you want or need. The lay out is perfect, everything is around the 3 huge pools in the center of the resort. We stayed in room 8308 (3rd floor) Our building was in the middle so close to everything. From the balcony we faced a farmers field. To the left you could see beautiful Mt. Isebel de Torres and to the right we could see the ocean. It was very quiet, we slept well. The room it's self was nice and clean, loved the jet tub. We always had hot water and the maid gave us whatever we wanted. The food at the buffet was good. I always found something good to eat. We went to the Mexican al la carte one night and the jalapeno poppers were amazing (they have bacon and cheese in them) You can pre order lobster at any of the al la carte restaurants for 20 US and you got a huge plate. It was worth the extra money. The snack bar was ok, burgers, fish, hot dogs ect..we only ate there late at night. The staff was so nice and very helpful. We loved the pool bar, spent most of our time close to it. The disco is fun! The entertainment staff dances with everyone there every night. The shows were average Dominican shows. Entertaining and funny. The day time entertainment was fun, darts, water aerobics and water basketball. There were always spots by the pools to be found even though the resort was full. The beach was nice but a little to wavy to swim out because of the rainy weather. You can walk for miles along the ocean. We went on the cable car up the mountain and we loved it. Amazing views of Puerta Plata and the ocean. We also went to Paradise Island. LOVED it. What an beautiful place to spend the day swimming, snorkeling, tanning and drinking! The boat ride out was exciting. It is about a 2 hour bus ride to get there. Cost us 78 US each. Well worth the money. Jean Francois our sunwing rep was very nice and helpful. Glad he was so honest answering all our questions and recommending safe places to eat off the resort. Great trip, so glad we went to Be Live Marien. Can't wait to go back.

A Nice hotel, if you can get a good price

This is basically a 3 star hotel. The positive features are the grounds, which are lovely and well-kept, and the beach area. A beautiful beach is most important to me and we were able to easily find chairs protected from the sun by trees or shade huts. Keep in mind that this is the Atlantic Ocean, not the Carribean so the water is not clear and blue and calm. The waves were not big, even though it was whipped up by terrible weather and winds.The pool area is very large but gets very crowded to the point that there are no chairs. We had mixed feelings about the food in the buffet and at the restaurants. We've had better food at All Inclusives, but also worse food. However, the staff in the Buffet really need some training. They practically run over the guests when they're walking around - no sense of manners and they are not attentive to guests needs. The restaurant food was only OK. The best was the Mediterranean (which is really Italian.)The room was adequate and kept clean, but we had a non-existent view from our "balcony." Granted we paid for a Standard room, the lowest price. We looked out at an alleyway across from another building of rooms.There was no problem with the time-share salesmen. You just said no and they left you alone. Also, no problem at all from salesmen on the beach.As an American and an English speaker, we were definitely in the minority. Very few English speakers. The entertainment staff tried hard to put on a show every night, but some of the entertainment is very lame. They should spring for some outside entertainment.Overall, only choose this hotel if you can get a good price.

Great food and service

Although it was a bit raining almost every day, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel premises were beautiful and functional. The entertainment staff were friendly and fun. The food in the buffet was always exceptional. A variety of delicious salads, meats, seafood was always fresh and amazing. Staff courteous and attending.
