from my experience it shows signs of declining."

From my upgrade being there. I took three rooms reviewed by myself to be half satisfied. The location Was great, but the accommodations were subpar. In the beginning their were no blankets and few towels. From the size of that room, their is much improvement needed in accommodations and cleanliness. I have made my stay in Boca Chicago at the hamaca for at least 5 years and I realize its potential.

Birthday Getaway

It was average nothing special. It was my birthday weekend celebration and we got there late due to the flight delay. The room was ordinary clean but plain. In order to go to the beach and the pool we had to walk across the street and through the main buildings. The food was DELISH!!!

BE LIVE HAMACA - give it a try you will be glad you did

In our opinion "Be Live Hamaca" is the best choice of all the so called "All inclusive Beach Resorts" in the Boca Chica area. So if you are truly looking for the best value for your hard earned cash then try this long time favourite. Hamaca is a special place...safe and secure...where you can relax and enjoy your long overdue vacation...a relaxing private beach...affordable and all inclusive 24/7. Under new management with a super friendly staff waiting to make your next vacation a memorable one. Give it a try....you will be glad you did.

It's ok

The front desk takes forever to check-in, by the way, they still ask for a VOUCHER, even tho you bring your ID, your booking # and credit card. I had to get upset with them so they don't sent me to a different desk to print it, so at the end the voucher was not needed. The shower was clugged, so I had a little pool of my own in the bathroom. Also, a lot of local people. Not everything is bad, location was good(beach), food was pretty good, and some bartenders prepare good drinks. I think the rates can be lower, the reason I say this, is because after my stay there, I went to a different resort in Punta Cana, and it was amazing! I do want to mention Pedro at the guest service desk, he was great help!

Warning!!!! NEVER AGAIN.

This is absolutely the worst hotel room i have ever stayed in. The floor was horrible,the shower was broken and tub were dingy, the furniture was ancient and the room needed painting. The air condition was very loud but it worked. You need to bring your own wash cloth because the hotel offer none. The refrigerator never worked, there was no iron in the room and no ironing board. I HAD TO ASK FOR ONE which i did get. There is a safe to lock up your valuables, its ancient too and its US $3.00 A DAY. Electricity went off daily and that meant no water hot or cold. The peep hole in the door had to be stuffed with tissue,because strangers can see you inside the room from outside your door. The entertainment shows at nights were good. Very few staff members spoke or understood english.

Short Vacations

Last August, I stayed with a friend at this hotel for a week. We enjoyed the good service and commitment of all the hotel staff. Also we enjoyed the pools, restaurants, pool-bars, and all the hotel activities. In general this was a good stay, nice place for short vacations. This is a basic hotel, maybe needs some minor maintenance. The light went out for two different days. In general this is a good, clean and valuable hotel for low money spent. I hope this review help you.

Nice place but alot of work still needed

The hotel is really close to the beach and has a really nice Caribbean feel to it. There is always a place open to eat and drink. The staff is very nice. You don't have to tip but if you do they will be extra helpful. The hotel is not an American hotel so don't expect American amenities like tons of towels in your room or a nice tv or a super clean room. Most of the people I met there had at least one thing wrong in there room either a broken toilet, missing light, broken tv, or no hot water. The rooms are not the cleanest either. Overall it was ok.

The food is terrible. It doesn't have any taste and you will barely be able to swallow it for more than a few days.

Needs improvement

This used to be a great place to vacation. After 5 years of not coming to this hotel I was surprised on how run down the facility was. It certainly did not match the description on the website.
