staff is very friendly. Food is yummy probably the best in all inclusives Ive had in recent times. Beds are a bit stiffGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good value, but not 5 star."
Very good value. Although the appearance of hotel was impressive, some of features showed wear and tear. AC in my room was frigid. They came three times to fix it...but never did get it fixed. Had to turn of AC so I didn't freeze. Food was pretty good. Service and staff were very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed the hotel...this was my second time staying...the first time we stayed it was awesome everything was great this time however our room smelled of mildew and mold and we were by the ocean which made our room feel drab and damp when we opened the door...the room had kind of a musty smell and the bed was uncomfortable to me that I had a difficult […] time sleeping...the grounds itself were beautiful and the staff was always professional and attentive to our needs...I like the hotel and would go back but would lie a room in the 8000bldg like my first trip...

"Nice hotel for family"
It a nice hotel and peaceful place I just went for a weekend and I had so much fun but the only thing that ruin ma vacation was the rain.. Try to look the wheater firth...everything else was amazing thank uGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean hotel...good location, friendly staff"
Staff were generally very helpful and courteous. Only down side is the aggressive timeshare staff that seem to be a part of the hotel so there's no getting away from them. A polite "no Gracias" does not work with these folks. Food was generally below average but the gourmet restaurant has good food but you have to book it early in the day or you're […] out of luck Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for the price!"
Great hotel for family. Food was good, but you NEED reservations for the nice restaurants which i didnt get a chance to go to. The buffet food was good, atmosphere was good, drinks were good and beach and pool were great. Do it!Genuine Expedia guest review
The stay was great , but the food could be better , they should have typical food , not different flood like oriental , Italian , Asian , and alsO the restaurant should be open every night .Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Costa Dorada Puerto Plata."
Great staff! Nice people. Great pool great food specially the gourmet dinner. The room was clean but needs renovation. The bed was not comfortable, not enough sheets. Overall 3.5 to 4.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a great experience, i rated overall with 4 only because they should improve there snack bars, the snack wasn't that good, but on the other hand the rest off the food was great. My wife and i can recommend this hotel!!!!! :)Genuine Expedia guest review

"Worst service I have received in YEARS!"
The internet was advertised free but it was NOT. The food was bland except for the Gourmet restaurant. The buffet was not worth the trip! I ate in the local economy for better food. The staff from the casino stationed at the entry of this hotel was disrespectful and RUDE. The casino is a RIP-OFF! The timeshare presentation is a bait and switch. I never […] received my concert tickets! The rooms were clean and the maid staff was the only high point on this visit. I may go to another island on my next trip. For those on a budget...there are buses that passes the entrance of the airport to the entrance of this hotel for 50 pesos...the $20-$30 usd price is a RIP-OFF. You can rent a car and driver ALL Day for that price...you'll see! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I've stayed at a few other resorts along the same strip, and Be Live Grand Marien, in my opinion, really surpasses the rest. My room was gorgeous and super clean! Pleasant staff that were always eager to help. The entertainment team was full of energy round the clock. The food was decent -- tasty but nothing that really stood out.Genuine Expedia guest review
change the food of the buffet! but I was very pleased!! I would go again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the past eight years and will continue to stay there exclusively in the future. The staff is always ready to help and take care of your every need.

"Modern and Clean Rooms"
I truly enjoyed our time there. My husband and I have stayed in many resorts in DR and this is one of the best by far. Beautiful beach. The rooms are very clean and modern. I loved the decor and the food was very good, the service too. But the Brazilian restuarant especially was delicious... do make a reservation to eat there! The evening entertainment […] stage shows after dinner were a bit lame but the Night-Club/ DIsco totally made up for it. It was crazy packed with a young fun vibe, drinks and great latin dance music! Fun in the Sun, Good Food, Good Music in a Nice Hotel Resort ... who can ask for anthing more? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
drinks with cheap alcohol in very small cups with kind of long lines and 1 bartenderGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I spent 6 days there on 4 different reservations. Originally I was very dissatisfied because of the people at the reception area. They were uncooperative and kept quotin rules that I did not know even existed. As the week went on, the service improved. The restaurants were excellent, especially the Brazilian one. The staff there is excellent. The pool […] is also amazing. I would return if I ever decide to return to D.R. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent service. Hotel amenities. Personal very frienlyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I came here with my family of six in early September. We only have good things to say about the resort. We all had a wonderful experience. Rooms- We had standard rooms, those were gorgeous. The beds were spacious, there was a flat screen TV, a mini fridge, coffee maker and many other nice amenities. Not to mention the bathroom had a jacuzzi tub and […] great AC. Food- The food was good, I personally preferred the Dominican buffet on saturdays. We only ate at the Buffet Restaurant and Snack Bar, we were definitely left satisfied! There are bars everywhere on the resort, and we all enjoyed the drinks they had to offer. Entertainment- Our family really enjoyed the entertainment. The shows at night were fun to watch and the games by the pool made us laugh. The entertainment staff was very charismatic and friendly! Pool- The pool is amazing. We all couldn't have enough. Beach- The beach was beautiful, although there was seaweed and some washed up on the sand, its still a beach, it belongs there. But that will definitely not deter you from enjoying the beach. DR offers the best beaches ever. Overall, the resort was relaxing, enjoyable and very pleasing. One tip is that it's emptier on weekdays because locals come in on weekends. They also have a casino, disco, spa, and gym on site if you're interested. It's also a great resort for couples. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

fairGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel looks good, the staff is awesome , the food not so much. We stayed there for 1 week, and went to the buffet every morning for breakfast, but we only dine there twice. They mention they have 3 other restaurants avaliable , but only 1 opens every day. You must be at the front desk before 9 if you want to get a spot. If you get there at 10, you […] wont find no more space. I think they should open the 3 restaurants plus the buffet every day. The food at the cafeteria isnt good at all. I was very dissapointed about the food. Everything else is good. What we did, we went l for dinner to different local places. We found good food and the prices werent bad at all. But, what is the point of paying for all inclusive if you have to get out of the hotel to eat everyday???. I know for next time. The pool and the entertainment is very good, the beach is pretty. The food BAD! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"1st time in D.R"
Good experience wish it wasn't raining so much when I was there.Genuine Expedia guest review
The stay was excellent, the only thing behind my living room had a residue of sewage that allowed me to go out to the balcony on that day, everything else is great, but I think that should solve the situation of having bad taste.Genuine Expedia guest review

This was my 3rd stay in this hotel and this time my son stayed in a new , renovated building and it was very nice...a very nice experience...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Keep your eyes open"
I believe that the towels in the room should be there as soon as thy take out the old ones right away. That didn't happen. The food is very Good. The people and staff are friendly. Keep an eye on your pool towels cause there's always a thief around. Over all. Everything was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected!"
Good hotel for the money. There are small things they need to work on, replacing towels is by far an area they need to improve. If you remove towels they should be replaced with out calling housekeeping. Many reviewers commented on the food. No problem with the food in the buffet. The Brazilian resturant was very good and easy to get reservations when […] ever you wanted. Pool and beach are very nice. My party of ten had a good time and enjoyed the resort. We did take advantage of the upgrade to one of the newer buildings which I believe made a big difference. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stinky Pillows but Nice Buffet"
Everyone expects tips here. Bring around $50 in dollar bills just for tips. The pillows in the hotel were not very comfortable, even though the pillow cases were changed daily, the actual pillow stunk because they never washed them. We had to cover them with a towel to sleep on them. Might be a good idea to bring a small pillow of your own. The buffet […] restaurant was very good, the banana smoothies that were served only for breakfasts were delicious. The beach was kind of dirty with sea weed and it was kind of annoying when local ladies would walk around the beach and pressure you to have them braid your hair for a charge of course, while you are trying to relax. It was an overall relaxing trip. If you decide to do something outside hotel activities, I would recommend going to the Paradise Island even though it is a bit more expensive, but you can get a good deal if you bargain with the guys that walk around and sell the events on the beach. If you are looking for a place where you can walk around outside of the hotel premises, do not look here. It is safest to stay inside the hotel premises unless on a tour or activity with a larger group. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The had people there trying to sell time share. they were so persistant and annoying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed my stay here very much. I stay five days with a friend. The room was beautiful. I couldn't believe we paid what we paid. It felt like it should've been more. The food was very good. We made reservations at the gourmet and Brazilian restaurant. They were both delicious. The buffet was food also they had different food every day. Although in […] the pictures it looks like one pool there are really three pools. The only thing that I think could've been better were the shows at night. I likes two of the five shows there were while I was there. Overall the hotel is very good. I would definitely go again. Worth every penny! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed my stay and enjoyed the food and the bar tenders but I think the service from the receptionists was terrible. I was supposedly upgraded to a better room upon my arrival and I was told my room was new but the bathroom faucet was broken and rusted and the fridge wasn't working.. I asked for it to the sink to be fixed but it never was and the […] only reason I got the fridge fixed was because I kept telling the maid who cleaned my room n she got someone for us. All in all everything the resort provides was great n the staff was very friendly...I just didn't enoy the fact that my faucet was broken Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was very friendly and very accommodating to my friends and I. The buffet was tasty and the a la carte restaurants were great as well. My only complaint is that I had to call and ask for small wash clothes. However, the staff replied very quickly to all of my request. The staff also takes the time to know you by name and that makes the experience […] personal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This was our second stay at the hotel - within less than a 45-day period. My fiance' and I spent three wonderful nights at the resort in May (2012). During our most recent visit however, we were disappointed with the quality and variety of food dishes and the long lines that we encountered. We were on our honeymoon and expected a better (or at least […] similar) experience as our first visit. However, we were sadly disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
