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!
This hotel/resort serves a mass of people on the cheap. We were put there because "there was an error in our reservation" at what appears to be a sister resort: Presidential Suites. The hotel grounds and overall cleanliness of the resort were pretty good. With few exceptions, that is where the "pretty good" stops. Except for the Asian and Brazilian restaurants, the remaining restaurants were awful. The food was tepid if not cold and the servers were inattentive and aloof. This place is in the Caribbean. You would expect good, fresh seafood! Right?! Wrong. Every fish dish I had was VERY fishy tasting. The "Lobster House" had no lobster... The "Steak House" gave you a 6oz. Skirt steak. Although the resort is "all inclusive" all other steak options on the menu cost you. The Mediterranean restaurant, "Mylos" served a lobster linguini dish that was awful to the point of being unpalatable it was so old tasting. Wine at the bars sprinkled throughout the resort was poured from 1 gallon plastic jugs. You can guess the quality... Mixed drinks were made from the cheapest liquor possible, unless you generously tipped your bartender whereas quality liquor would mysteriously appear. The rooms were clean but sparse. There were no chairs in the room. The only furniture was a rock-hard bed, a day bed, dresser and end tables. There was no security lock mechanism on the door. There was a room safe, but it usually costs extra. One bright spot was the Day Spa where for $150 you could get a couples massage, bottle of champagne, sauna and jacuzzi. The jacuzzi did not work and only bubbled around cold water. The staff at the spa were extremely polite and friendly. There were a variety of vendors along the walkways at night selling all sorts of items from native crafts, alcohol, trinkets and cigars, and it was like running a gauntlet to get past them. Sattioned outside of the buffet restaurant in the morning were neatly dressed gents whose sole job was talk folks into attending a time-share presentation hawking the resort from which we were supposed to be going to stay. All in all, this place is a waste of time, money and the price of a plane ticket.
We stayed at this resort for two weeks we where told it was to be a good resort as we ck in it was hot send my husband to get a drink at the lobby bar they said that we had to pay ?? I thought this was all inclusive then it went down hill from there I can say that I would not return to this resort and will not recommend it to anyone I can write what everyone wrote on there reviews I would just be repeating what ever one else said bad things they said it is true I love punta cana we go there a lot we will still go but not at this resort
When we first arrived we were shuffled to a lobby near the gym. There was free WIFI here which was nice, we were able to let family know we arrived safely. We stayed over my birthday and my husband inquired about VIP when we got there. it was going to be an additional $50/day/person. So we decided not to do it and maybe towards the end of our trip we might give it a whirl. Room: We got to our room (building 5, ground floor), it was a very basic room. Clean, some cracking tiles in the shower. TV, mini fridge, safe (an extra charge) and basic bathroom amenities. Our thinking was, we only sleep in here; we would survive.Food: We ate mostly buffet as it was very convenient. There is also a burger joint that served awesome chicken wings! we did have the à la cartes but they weren't really anything to write home about. For my birthday, my husband purchased the lobster dinner on the beach, it was tasty and romantic, however there was too much food and we couldn't eat it all. International brands of liquor were given to us if we asked for it. That's the mediocre bit, here is how our trip changed for the better... On my birthday, 3 days into our trip, we were told there was a problem with our room and the room next to us. Apparently, there was a letter left in our room telling us to find Mr. Montero. So my hubby found him and was told we would have to change rooms. My husband explained that it was my birthday and that I was relaxing on the beach, Mr. Montero offered us an upgraded room to building 7 along with VIP access for the remainder of our trip, if we could be out of our room in 20 mins. We were out in 15. Building 7 was a dream! And, the VIP so worth it! we don't have kids, nor are we rowdy teenagers, so having the exclusive adults only section was wonderful. They provided top shelf international brand liquor (i.e Johnnie Walker Black) and a private pool and beach. We no longer had to make reservations for dinners. Finally, the VIP lounge, had it's own bar, with WIFI and concierge that would check you out at the end of your stay. There was also a small snack bar in the lounge. We had a late flight, so they also provided us with late checkout. Our original mentality of "only sleeping of our room" changed and we spent some nice quiet time on to balcony and ordered room service. My husband has always said he would never sttay at the same resort twice; he insists on seeing different destinations and resorts. However, thanks to the upgrade, and Mr. Montero, Be Live Punta Cana has made customers for life. We share our experience with anyone who will listen as it was truly a memorable one. We will be back and we will do VIP again.
The hotel is perfect !Great food, great location and the staff is super nice.- super hot water.- Big and comfortable bed.- very nice pool ares- Crystal clear water beach 5 minutes walking distance
Booked Presidential Suites thru Groupon, no rooms upon check in and put here. Buffets were awful, restaurant meals not hot. Only good experience was couples massage at spa and dinner at Brazilian restaurant. BeLive told us they could help us fix our problem with Presidential Suites but that meant listening to their time share program and buying to be able to stay there. Horrible experience would and I would not recommend Presidential Suites, BeLive hotels or groupon.
