Our flight was cancelled due to some runway issues and Sunwing bussed us to Be Live Collection Marien. When we arrived I was amazed at how organized the front desk was as they registered hundreds of guests into their hotel. Our room was outdated but it was huge. We were in building 8 and although some of our friends found the beds to be uncomfortable, we were fine. We went to the buffet and I found the selection plentiful and flavorful. The night we were there they were offering cheese samples which I loved! The pools are beautiful at night and even better in the daylight! The breakfast buffet was awesome! Made to order pancakes is something I have never experienced at an all inclusive and they were light and fluffy. Lunch was also good. The snack bar down by the beach was mediocre though. Because I was only there for 24 hours my review is based on a short stay but compared to the new, refurbished resort we had just left I preferred the Marien over the resort I just spent a week at!

I would highly recommend this hotel and upgrading to one of the VIP packages. Good staff, excellent food, great Adult VIP beach location and other areas easily accessible by excursion of by good value taxis.

Room Tip: Upgrade to one of several VIP packages.

Check in was okay but not the friendliest of folks customer service is non existent here unless you pay to upgrade to VIP I presume. Exchanging cash seemed pretty easy.

Drinks and food are okay for an all inclusive resort. There are only 3 restaurants you can make reservations at and we were told you can only visit once during our stay despite we are here a week.

Not a lot of activities for entertainment during the day and the nightly theater acts are pretty entertaining.

Not near as many vendors on the beach as Punta Cana thank God! But they do try to push their timeshare at the resort and kept asking us every day.

Gift shops are overpriced, get a cab and go into town or ask your driver to stop on the way to and from the airport.

Absolutely love it here!! The staff is absolutely fantastic! Francisco, Bladimir, spaghetti are just a few of the people that took care of my brother and I. The Bartenders, the restaurant staff, the activity personnel, all the entertainers and especially our maid and this one waitress in the buffet area was beyond excellent. Like I said I love it there; the pool is always clean and sparkling , always some form of activity taking place, food is always available to you, and the drinks are endless . Everything and everyone was just beyond awesome. I would definitely recommend going to ”Be Live”, and when you do, please take part in the nightly variety show!! They work exceptionally hard to entertain and make things fun for you and your family.
