Although Punta Cana is the most popular destination in the Dominican Republic, the region of La Romana has gained popularity due to an increase in resort options and the ability to offer tourists a somewhat quieter atmosphere. Be Live Resorts has a large resort in Punta Cana but also offers Be Live Canoa in La Romana. This is a moderate 3.5-star property that caters to families and sits on the white sand beaches of Bayahibe. Del Este National Park is only steps from the resort, where guests can see a variety of exotic vegetation and wildlife.
Accommodations include 3 different room layouts – Deluxe, Superior Deluxe, and Family Suite, with garden or pool view options for Deluxe rooms. Furnishings are sparse and depending on the section of the resort, room decor ranges from clean and modern to outdated. Room features include a mini-bar, TV, coffeemaker, hairdryer, air conditioning, and a balcony or terrace.
The all-inclusive property features 7 restaurants, including a buffet and several a la carte options for Asian, Brazilian, Italian, Mexican, and Mediterranean cuisine. Guests can also look forward to 7 bars and lounges, a disco and casino, nightly entertainment, and a massive free-form pool with a swim-up bar.
Additional amenities include a kid’s club, medical services, a pharmacy, a gift shop, laundry facilities, a fitness center, a spa and services, a kid’s pool, and many recreational facilities and non-motorized watersports. There is also a VIP section with a separate pool and beach.
The resort tends to score high with guests for its price, location, beautiful grounds, free-form pool, and buffet. However, it scores low and receives complaints about such things as unhelpful or unresponsive staff, lack of room cleanliness and need for repairs, dissatisfaction with a la carte restaurants, and crowds at the beach.
