The Casino and Pure nightclub were not run by the BeLive Grand Marien so it was not the hotel that closed both the premises.

Jeremy, I would say the BeLive is better for your age group of mid twenties than the Gran Ventana who closes it bar at midnight where the BeLive has a sports bar open until late.

Apparently from what I have heard the company that was running the venue is up to their eyes in debt for not paying their loans, so it will not be opening any time soon unless someone else takes over the running of the premises.

that's too bad, not really much use for the casino, but the nightclub / disco is always a fun part to a trip. always enjoyed disco nights till 1 or 2am while in cuba. was really looking forward to this also in Puerto Plata. are there and other resorts in Puerto Plata that have a 24hr snack bar and bar, as well as a disco or nightclub?

The Iberostar Costa Dorada which is located right next door to the BeLive has its own nightclub which is open until 2am. Late night snacks are located either in the Mexican ( La Hacienda ) a la carte or the main buffet restaurant ( El Mercado ) from 11:30pm – 7:00 a.m.

thank you very much :). just have to see if this resort will be ok with everyone else in my group. it ends up being about 100$ more then the Be Live, but looks like it would be worth it. Reviews are great for Iberostar and no complaints about food.

looking forward to booking one of these resorts very soon!!

Gran Ventana would be my choice. I was there with a group of six who didn't want to deal with a highly energized club crowd all of the time. Gran Ventana was busy and relaxing at the same time. For me and others in my group we were a bit cost conscious so we stayed out of casinos (remember that payouts are regulated differently than here in the US), clubbing outside the property kept us from the continuous party crowd. Lots of entertainment for all ages on the resort making outside excursions minimal.

Beach, pool, great food varieties for an all-inclusive and beverages for everyone's taste make this a great place to vacation, understandable why so many guests we met are on their 4th and 5th trips to Gran Ventana.
