Be Live Grand Bavaro
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Our OpinionA great resort. The resort is laid out well. There are many buildings spread over the area of the resort. Despite it's size, there are plenty of pools to accommodate the large amount of guests. Keep in mind that this resort does open it's doors up to the public during the weekends, making these days busier than most. This is also a place that is fitting for guests who are looking to stay within the resort grounds. There is very limited beach space and a dock is located very close by, making the beach almost un-swimmable, as there are several boats that dock close to the vicinity.
OverviewThis magnificent luxury hotel is located on the East coast of the Dominican Republic and is part of the Grand Punta Cana complex. The resort is just a few minutes away from Punta Cana's international airport, ideal for couples and families. Here you can enjoy two hotels in one, and discover this new and exciting 24 hr All Inclusive Resort!
Hotel:Very big complex, we stayed in block 3 which was central to the pool, theatre and restaurant. On arrival we received drinks and felt welcomed. The room was spacious, unfortunately didn't have an up to date air con system, only a ceiling fan which wasn't very powerful. Well stocked mini bar but towards the end of our stay wasn't restocked daily. Food/Entertainment:Food was lovely, plenty to choose from and even the choice of going in the A La Carte restaurants (Japanese, Brazilian, Steak House, Mexican). Entertainment was spot on, always plenty going on throughout the day (eg. Kayaking race, foam party, Spanish lessons, ping pong, mini golf, archery) keeping you entertained and shows every night. They all worked hard to get you involved including Spaghetti, Mini Me and Magic Mike.Pool/Beach:Beach very close by and the pool very busy and not too cold although could have been cleaner. However, easy to get in to as you can easily walk in and only waist deep. Ideal for young kids.
We stay me my girlfriend and my fimily in two runs 3018 and 3019 we call the manager because we got a bed bugs in the run and we dont have not water we try to call de manager many time and they don’t do nothing about it They don’t help us that all very very bad experience in this hotel the hotel it’s beautiful but the staff not that all I saw workers from the hotel trying to hitting the woman’s not a good place to live your wife or girlfriend alone ...I make the complaint and they do anything about and the foot it’s terrible I still waiting for any answers
By far the worst all-inclusive experience I've had. Resort staff should be ashamed of how they treat guests. Not a solo travel friendly resort whatsoever. Told to move mid meal to a different table. I've went up for seconds and realized my drinks are gone and table is changed over. Very limited bars (majority are VIP Only but you can pay extra to have them serve you-even though there are no guests waiting). Two days since housekeeping has touched my room. I have never complained about a resort, until coming here!
Great holiday looked after great food great value for money. Look forward to going back. Beaches some of the best in the world. The people so friendly. The weather to die for. If your looking a value for money holiday get your self out there. You can party or just chill round some of the pools it's that big. Live the life in paradise.
First of all I’d like to say that the overall holiday was fantastic. This is a bit of a mixed review.PROSGreat selection of pools (I think we counted 7 whilst we were there). Awesome foam canon party in the main poolPlenty of bars. One in the main pool, one at the back of the main pool and one on the beach.Friendly and helpful staff all over the complex.Daily activities ranging from French bowls to water polo.Decent enough shopping mall on the complex (2 or 3 souvenirs stores, specialist tanning lotion store, confectionery, tobacconist, WiFi, photo booth etc...)CONSReps around the complex CONSTANTLY hound you for your business and tell you not to talk to anybody else because they spoke to you first so they should get the commission.Night stalls all over the place and people in your car trying to get you buy things.NOISE and LOUD MUSIC FROM NEXT ROOM. 4:30am was one of the ridiculous times during the last 7 nights we were woken up to seriously loud music and shouting coming from the next room. For 7 nights we call down to reception to sort this out. Nothing got done. Just a security guard coming around 30 minutes to an hour later to tell them to turn the music down. Absolute joke.RESTAURANT REVIEWMylos (Mediterranean) - fantastic. Beautiful food with great presentation. Nice ambient music in the back ground too.Windows Buffet - decent enough for buffet food. Decent enough waiter service although we did have to call them over for drinks quite a lot. I don’t think they got one drinks order correct but to be fair there must have been close to 100 tables in that buffet so they are worked extremely hard.Akeru (Japanese) - awesome. Lovely authentic Japanese food and a show chef on display with seating area around it.Orale’ (Mexican) - I had high hopes for this one but unfortunately we had booked on the night of the hurricane. Needless to say, the power outages made things very difficult for the guys to actually prepare a decent meal. My main course was very disappointing. I had a 3 chilli chicken which was basically just a chicken breast in gravy with rice. There was no form of chilli in it whatsoever.Rodizio (Brazilian) - you’ll get the meat sweats. Basically a help yourself buffet with a waiter that comes around every 10 minutes with a sleeve of meat and offers some to your plate. Nice meat though.Burger Corner & KM Pizza - pretty much spent every single lunch time in here as it is so close to the pool. Nice enough for a quick lunch time bite.Lobster House - not a fan of sea food so this one was out for me. I tried it, but wasn’t keen.Night Time Entertainment.It wasn’t really for me. Must have heard the Spanish version of despacito at least 50 times during a 14 night stay. The theatre was funny on occasion but I’m a go to bed early kind of guy and it didn’t start until 10pm.Hotel bedrooms looked really tired and sloppy paint work, grouting all chipped out of the floor tiles a hurst when you catch your foot, but then I suppose you only really use it to sleep.Also, they only offer Dominican pesos on site from the atm machine and the exchange which seems crazy to me as every single item throughout the complex was priced in US Dollars.We never got chance to try the casino and the nightclub didn’t open until 11pm or 12am. (Can’t remember what the correct time was)Overall rating 7/10. If the music in the next room had been sorted properly it would have been 8/10.Hope this review of helpful to you and I hope you enjoy your stay there
