3.5* hotel with the poor reviews is an alarm. So we were sufficiently alarmed, yet decided to give it a try. Overall room was OK, it was spacious, furniture was in a good shape. Bathroom was functioning (leaking shower head was replaced by the hotel's staff promptly after my call), water flow was a bit weak but enough for showering. Toilet sometimes required flushing twice but worked too. AC worked fine. Beware that some beachside rooms are cheaper because they have no balconies. Food in a buffet was great and tasty. Choices for 3.5* were just fine. Buffet has a pizza station and a frying station. Unfortunately, their breakfast yogurt and oatmeal were sweet, I'd prefer them without sugar. They had plastic tea spoons for soup and other liquid food, that was inconvenient and embarrassing. Also they frequently had single-use cups for coffee/tea when normal cups were all used up. Buffet service was almost always none. To have a drink one should go to a special location were their glass (or more frequently, plastic cup) will be filled by either beer or wine. I tried to leave tips, but didn't notice any improvement. Alcohol was of a basic quality, beer was good. Good coffee was available from a coffee machine in a lobby bar only. Beach is great - water always calm and not more than 1.5m deep everywhere. There is not much snorkelling just by the beach, but having rubber shoes, one could walk much farther away (it is even less deep there and then you would reach side of a reef). Animators were doing their job well :) There were many competitions with a bottle of ron as a prize. Evening entertainment I skipped because of covid. Almost all patrons ignored wearing masks. There were no covid precautions in a buffet, except of hand sanitizer at the entrance. Hotel is in Boca Chica town. In fact, a public road is going straight through the hotel and one would cross it regularly on a way to the buffet (not too busy and there is always a guard stopping the traffic for patrons). There is a way to walk by a beach to meet locals, see smaller beaches, public spaces. Streets around the hotel look like a mess, but there are a lot of small shops and cafes everywhere. There is a large North-American style supermarket store close by - it has the best alcohol prices.

BE LIVE HAMACA - DOMINICAN FUN OR DOMINICAN SUN
BE LIVE HAMACA - BOCA CHICA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (ONLY 50 KLMS FROM SANTO DOMINGO) My wife and I last visited "Be Live Hamaca" during the period 24 April-10 May 2017. This time was our 28th visit and once again we had a super time....really no complaints. Each year since 1995 we visited Hamaca and so far we have completed a grand total of 439 days together at this one particular resort. Why do we keep going back to Hamaca?....good question. Once again we love the Boca Chica area and to make comparisons we have visited all of the other all inclusive hotels on this particular beach. No kidding.....we found that none could compare to Hamaca for service, affordability, quality and above all...the only private beach in the whole Boca Chica Beach area. "Be Live Hamaca" is a true hidden treasure. In our opinion this hotel is the best all inclusive beach front resort (open 24 hours - 7 days a week) in the Boca Chica area. In addition to the private beach this resort has a good mixture of specialty restaurants. To start....in the centre of the complex you will find the Buffet Restaurant that offers daily changing international menus...then you have the Mexican, Gourmet, Italian and the newly updated Brazilian Restaurants. All of the specialty restaurants offer menus that will excite your taste buds. Also if you are interested in a totally new experience do try the on site "Pelicano Beach Restaurant" which offers a menu that is not included in your all inclusive package...but it is still an affordable experience. Once again our latest accommodations were located in the Presidential Suites. These rooms are super...quiet, spacious, great views and excellent housekeeping services. If you have the opportunity and can afford the extra cash you will not be disappointed in any of the beach area selections. All of the rooms in the main building facing the ocean are special as the view is splendid. We love the salt water so the beach area has always been our first choice...however, if your preference is a beautiful garden area with a super large pool and a swim up bar....then the gardens area should be your first choice. So...if you are truly looking for the best value for your hard earned cash then try this long time favourite. "Be Live Hamaca" is indeed a special place...safe and secure...where you can relax and enjoy your long overdue vacation. This resort offers a totally relaxing private beach...affordable and it is an all inclusive 24/7 resort. The new management along with a super friendly staff are waiting to make you next vacation a most enjoyable experience. So see for yourself....participate or relax...your choice Dominican Fun or Dominican Sun.....do give it a try.....you will be glad you did.
