Was told at check in that we had to come back in order to order safes for our rooms. One person in our party had a hard time walking asked for first floor room was told there is an elevator but someone in our group was given first floor room. I was told twice I needed to check out of my room after I had just checked in. Maid service was slow didn’t get room cleaned till 5. Pool was slimy One couple on this booking had ants in there bed and in closet. There was 4 drug deals go on at the beach with the security guard near by Specialty restaurant were very good and buffet was good

NOT A FOUR STAR HOTEL
SCOTT U.
Aug 05 2018
To make a few long stories short, there was an issue with the bathroom sink that the hotel was aware of but never made us aware of which led my family to having to wash our hands and teeth in bathroom bathtub due to the issue not being resolved until after four phone calls and a trip to the front office after waiting over four hours. There are ten restaurants at the resort in which seven you need reservations, tried making a reservation after standing in a long line on a Tuesday morning and was told that there was no availability until Thursday, made the reservation for the Brazilian restaurant only to find out the night of the reservation while trying to enter the Brazilian restaurant that the reservation was made for the Mexican restaurant. Last full day at the resort we called housekeeping to request some clean towels and after four phone calls and five hours clean towels were finally delivered to our room.

The food staff were outstanding and the housekeeping was great in the beginning. After four days they just arrived too late to clean the rooms. The entertainers were exceptional and embraced everyone so positively. I was quite annoyed about the smoking and felt there needed to be a place for smokers. The fact that no one came to transfer us to the airport was quite upsetting and I was fearful of missing my flight and had to pay out of pocket expenses for a taxi. That should not have happened especially since I had worked it out and even had the person's name who made the arrangements with me. Overall I would give it a B.

My experience at B-Live was the worst vacation I have ever had. I called Apple Vacation and complained and they did nothing. I have booked travel through Apple Vacation for the past 7 years and have referred several relatives to book through Apple. Because of this horrible experience, I will never book through Apple Vacation again. My husband and I are taking our anniversary trip in August and I am in the process of going through other travel agencies. My relatives met me at the B Live resort and I felt awful because I was the one who encouraged them to come there. From now on me, any of my family members, or friends will take our business elsewhere.

Electricity kept going out, TV didn't work very well, when calling room service (3 times) no one answered. Staff was not pleasant at all at any of the restaurants or bars (felt like we were a bother to them). The buffet restaurant's food was poor, the Lobster House food was excellent, and the Auqa restaurant was OK. I would not go back to this hotel.

The beach was disgusting and full of seaweed, the lights and water kept going out, 3 of the 4 alla carts restaurants that we paid to have access to were closed during our stay, the pools closed super early and the quality of liquor at the bars were poor.

Check in was horrible took us 4 times waiting in line for our room to be ready. Had to change rooms, due to no air in the first room and the second room was not much better. Little air and a horrible mildew smell. Was told it was all the room but it wasn't had friends and family in other rooms and their room were perfectly fine. Loved the beach bar Sonja & Jesus was the greatest. Treating us like family knowing what drinks we liked and always making sure we had a table to hang out at.

The pictures don't really represent what the average vacationer will get. The cabanas are for VIP only. The rooms are out dated. It was a nice experience but more so because we had great company. Each couple had issues with their room. Issues with staff. Plumbing issues. We were told to move out things out of our room and we would be transfered to another room 3 hrs later. Which was ridiculous to be without a room mid day in that heat. A person opened our door without knocking whatsoever while I was in the shower and my husband was in bed. Our room was at the edge of the property which was adjacent to a home so we had dogs barking, roosters cock a dooing. The vendors are pushy. The time share people basically kidnap you. They escort you to set up your transportation then deliver you to someone to listen about a time share. I went along not thinking I had a choice in the matter. Admittedly, I enjoyed my time with them but did not purchase a vacation package. But, they are relentless in their efforts to trap vacationers. It's annoying at best. My next resort would have to have no solicitors. The buffet and the steak house provided the best meals. The other restaurants we visited were not great. Fortunately our reservation was early enough to hit the buffet after. It wasn't a horrible vacation but it could have been better.

After reading reveiws about the hotel, I was a little worried. It wasn't as bad as I thought it could have been. But it wasn't what I thought I paid for. I was turned off after staying at this hotel. For all inclusive, I expected more. This was a lower all inclusive hotel, that you have to pay more to get a VIP service. Why pay more? I already paid for an all inclusive stay, and felt like I was at a low brow hotel. Not at all what I expected.

VIP - Adult Only
Dan G,
Thu Mar 14 19:14:28 EDT 2019
7 day trip with my brother to this sunny destination. VIP is a must - otherwise this would be a 3 star resort. From the food, to the pool, to the beach, VIP made this trip. Food was actually varied and enjoyable, above average in the VIP area. We were in the newly renovated section of the resort. No complaints, room was clean, all amenities worked well - no issues like others experienced. The only complaint is that the bar fridge rarely got replenished, even after asking several times. Another part of the resort that was enjoyable was the staff - some are there just to do a job, and are as polite as one can be, but there were several employees that went above and beyond - Miguel, Johanny, Richar and Danielito. Genuinely good people - 5 out of 5!

Resort is tired but some amazing staff

Resort is tired. Not enough staff in dining room, always had to wait for tables to be cleaned and food to be replenished. Not enough chairs around the pool or on the beach… half the ones on the beach were broken. Ala cart restaurants were very good ..We attended 4 of them. Only problem was that you couldn’t book them the day you wanted them…the girl at the booking counter kept changing her mind as to when they could be booked. Said we could only book 3 days ahead and had to go every morning and stand in line to book. When we ate in them, they were all half empty.. Sergio, our pool bar tender, was excellent. He made our trip and the resort ! Sonia , the beach bar tender, was fun and definitely enjoyed her job making the resort guests feel welcome. Having to pay $3 a day for a lock for the safety deposit box in our room was crazy. It should have been included in the room fee. They mentioned to tip the ‘maid service’ ahead of time to get better service…this made no difference. Most days we did not get a face cloth or hand towels. The Lobby Bar being ‘VIP only’ is a bad first impression for all guests. The Burger Corner had good burgers, pizza and snacks – a great alternative to the dining room. The ‘Omelet maker’ did a fantastic job every morning, was fascinating to watch and definitely enjoyed his job making the guests happy. The staff overall were very welcoming to the guests and would make it a 5. We chose a family resort this year and found the kids entertainment went too late in the evening..Won't make that mistake again

Service makes this resort!

If it wasn't for the amazing staff and service, this resort would only get 1/5. They totally made our trip! First of all, Valentin in reception was so helpful to us all week. On our third day, our ceiling was leaking water very badly, and he upgraded us to a swim-up room immediately. Any concerns we had, he was quick to take care of it for us. Francisco, or Chiki, works late afternoon in the swim-up bar and evenings at the buffet, is such a sweet guy. My husband and I really took a liking to him and missed him on his day off! He took such great care of us all week and was so attentive. Also at the swim-up bar was Sergio. What a crazy guy! So much fun to watch him entertain the pool goers. He's also quite attentive and often had drinks ready when ours weren't quite finished. This resort is not all-inclusive. You have to pay $10 a day to rent a Bali bed. But let me tell you, it's worth every penny. We opted against upgrading to VIP because the service from Carmelo was so good! Anything we wanted, we didn't even have to ask! He even asked if we wanted lunch, though my husband had already gone to get it. Such a well-mannered gentleman. 5 star service for sure! Mami Sonia at the beach bar is the best! She radiates so much positivity and joy. We loved spending time there, watching her interact with the others. I didn't catch the names of everyone on the entertainment team, but they're amazing. The girl from Paris, Sasha, is incredible. I have no idea how she goes all out, all day, with so much energy and always with a big, beautiful smile on her face. The food in the buffet is mediocre at best. I basically lived off potato salad. I did get very ill on my second day. 11 hours of vomiting. I generally avoided any meat that was left under a heat lamp. The burger bar is ok. I liked their chicken nuggets a lot, and the pizza is decent if you can get it when it's fresh. We had the Brazilian, Mediterranean, Japanese and the Steak House for a la cartes. The steak house was the best! Such tender filet mignon, lovely grilled vegetables, excellent chicken wings (starter). Brazilian had the most juicy, flavorful turkey I've ever had and lovely sirloin. Mediterranean was ok. I was surprised by how good the mushroom risotto was, but we found all the food there a bit salty. Japanese was fun and fresh, though they don't give you time to digest, they basically kicked us out as soon as we swallowed our last bite. The beach is nothing like the photos. There's always tons of boats in the harbour and you can often smell the fuel. The pan handlers are plentiful, but they're generally nice people and have no issue if you simply say no gracias. Still, I found it odd to experience this on the resort while trying to enjoy our vacation. The public restrooms are very clean. No idea why there's reviews saying they're filthy. Unfortunately, there was a Student City set up while we were there and we weren't informed. So many rude, obnoxious spring breakers. No respect for anyone or anything. We were woken several times a night - as early as 5 a.m. - because they were still up paying and security didn't bother to put a stop to it. They made it so difficult to enjoy our honeymoon. Finally, on our last day, the toilet in our room started leaking tons of water onto the floor and out into the holiday. Our phone didn't work, so we couldn't even call someone. We won't stay at this resort again, it's not exactly what we were looking for in a relaxing vacation. The staff here is the only saving grace, as they are truly amazing.

It was a short drive from the airport and I had no issues with check-in (I was not in the Adults Only section). My room wasn't fancy (but neither am I) and was large (with balcony) and clean and I had hot water (two key items for me!). Cleaning ladies were pleasant and accommodating. The buffet was average, most of the staff throughout the hotel pleasant, responsive and helpful. I ate at the Mediterranean, Japanese , Mexican, Steakhouse and Brazilian restaurants and these were a step up from the buffet. Although there appeared to be lots of seaweed that would come onto the beach overnight they were really good at cleaning it up quickly. Plenty of lounge chairs both on the beach and around the main pool. The only downsize was that I wasn't aware it was the US Spring Break (maybe this type of information could be shared similar to when they share information about religious holidays, etc.) so I had 4 days of peace and 3 days of having my patience tested - lesson learned. I wanted a quick getaway, a clean room/hot water, lots of sun and didn't need the bells and whistles and this hotel delivered that. It's average but definitely not the 5-Star it advertises itself to be (and those in the Adults Only section also shared it was good, but it wasn't 5-star).

I had an amazing time with 2 other couples. The only disappointment was the beach, but the pools were amazing, so we still had a great time. Wish we found the disco sooner!! The food was very good and plentiful. So many options for A La Carte, so hard to choose.
