“Ups and downs!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

Let me start by saying this is a beautiful location along a beautiful beach. Our trip was filled with ups and downs, but overall wasn't bad. I will separate my good and bad experiences.

Good-- The Brazillian and Japanese restaurants were the best. Each person waiting tables also made the experience great. The food was wonderful!
The beach was beautiful. There were plenty of chairs and shade avaiable. They worked very hard to keep the grounds clean.
The entertainment was great also. Mr Banana is a nut!!! So much fun...Drinks were very well mixed and there weren't long lines. The kids loved volleyball and nightime bingo. Our room was cleaned each day and they did a nice job leaving towels and all.

Bad--Our check in was one of those dreaded 3 hour waits. We were starving and thirsty and noone offered anything to us! I was ready to hit the plane back to the US. We kept getting shuffled to the back of the line because they couldn't find reservations I booked 6 months in advance. Supposedly, they were downloaded from Santa Domingo? Jonathon was a great help who found them in two minutes! Salvador left us hanging and Samuel tried but didn't have a clue. So, find Jonathon if you need help...
Internet was touch and go. It went down a time or two, but came back up.
We had 3 rooms and one smelled horrible! The first room was not clean and had a broken mirror, so they promptly moved us. However, the mold smell was terrible and all of our things stayed damp all week. We stayed in building 11.
Do not eat the International food, or Sports Bar. YUCK!!!

All-in-all, it wasn't a bad vacaiton, but I would probably not go back to this location. We've stayed in the DR before and had much better experiences. However, for the price, it is favorable for a budget.

Room Tip: Choose buildings with higher numbers, they are newer. Construction is going on, so prepare.

This was our second time at an all-inclusive in the DR. We would not hesitate to go back to Be Live in Punta Cana. There is plenty to do for the whole family(many activities on the beach) and the staff always was willing to help you. Whenever I asked for assistance the folks helped out. Orlando at the front desk was extremely helpful!, as was Osiris!
There were numerous people in our group and the quality of the rooms certainly varied,but they were all nice! Building 9 very nice
The food varied depending on what restaurant you ate at. I would stay away from the American Sport Bar. However, the rest of our dining experiences was fine.
The guests are indeed mostly Spanish speaking, but that is OK. Everyone was nice and we felt totally at ease. During the entertainment they did give shout out to the USA a long with other countries.

Room Tip: If you go to bed before 11:00 pm, ask for a room away from the theater. All shows are over by 11:00

Quite late on this review, but we stayed here back in January 2010 when it was still called the Grand Oasis. As a first-timer to Punta Cana, this resort was beyond expectations! Staff was friendly, The rooms were clean, newly renovated and the pool areas looked brand new! I plan to come back again to this resort in the near future.

The food was relatively good, but be sure not to drink the water.We enjoyed the variety of restaurants on this resort.

The beach was incredible! Beautiful white sands, great lounge chairs and delicious drinks!

The entertainment each night was also phenominal! My friends and I would recommend this resort to anyone staying in Punta Cana.

On another note, the day trip into town with Bavaro Runners is a once in a lifetime experience!

The rooms smell of humidity or mold. Bathrooms are falling apart. We had water leak coming from upstair unit and no one ever came to address it. Bed was not very comfy. The housekeeping was great but the towels and shampoo were just inferior quality. The lounge chairs around the pool and the outdoor furniture are old and worn. The rotisserie food at the steakhouse restaurant was under done. The oven baked bread was amazing. The sushi at the Japanese restaurant did not look very fresh. The food at the buffet restaurant was varied enough that I could find something good to eat but never lobster. Fresh fruit was always watermelon, pineapple and one other fruit. I expected more variety being that we were there in July. Service at the bars and restaurants was a bit slow at times. The show on Thursday night was very enjoyable. I was told the music at the disco night club was good but drinks not included under the all inclusive plan. The all night food bar serves pizza, hamburgers, and hot dogs. Not very ones at that. Don't write off Punta Cana, just stay elsewhere.

My family and I stayed for 7 nights and had a blast. Every morning, lunch and dinner, the buffet was available to satisfy your needs. Every night had a theme of food course. I had chinese, mexican, american and etc. There were also 2 reaturants located in the resort which provised brazilian food and japanese. The beach is very close, unlike other resorts where trains are needed to be taken just to experience the warm water. There were a variety of swimming pools which were in every part of the resort. The little kids had a very excellent area to meet other children and enjoy your time in the sad with balloons and other activities. As for the adults, there are these 4 crazy and fun instructors who did their best to keep every active. Mr. Funky did the water arobecis. Mr. banana was an amazing dancer who did volunteer stepping for dancing near the pool side. Mini mi and coca cola were great with either yoga, and fun games in between break fast and lunch. As for drinks, there were plenty of bartender that caught my attention. Mainly Angelo, and Jesus. Angelo alternates between the 24/7 bar and the buffet bar. Amazingly great with mixing your drinks properly. Jesus opporated mainly at night for late night thirst or per drinks before the bar. There were also Tony, Jose, and Etc. Every night had a fantastic show at the theater located near the VIP building. When I was there, they had a Michael Jackson show, comedy, a celeb night also a beach party and a whole lot more. There is a sports bar located on top of the beach bar which usually is meant for a teen club but it's empty half the time because it's every unaware. Once the show ends, there will be a man name Frank will walk around the lounge, promoting a club called the moon (also ask about Imagine for Saturday nights). It's busy mainly on the weekend but if you're into just dancing, you'll love it. It's small and entrance is free but drinks are of course In need of payment. The DJ, is available for request and be prepared to dance Spanish music with the locals. When all that's done, the beach bar is open for food and more drinks to satisfy your thirst and hunger. Jesus will be there all night to help sober you up or get you drunk. When the beach and pool isn't you're thing all the time, locals are available for tours out side the resort. Swimming with dolphins, parasailing, boggie driving and snorkeling are there for more entertainment. Please consider this resort because I had an amazing time and I'll be planning to go again this christmas. - love Thy
