My boyfriend and I recently stayed here on our first vacation together. We had a great time and really loved Puerto Plata. The resort was fine, but for what we paid for 8 days, I didn't expect to be living luxuriously. We spent most of our time on the beach, which was beautiful, so it didn't bother us that the... More

People where incredible and the experience was one we shall never forget. Shout out to Leo, Melissa, and the omelet-maker haha. Felix is the man to plan your excursions with, he's at the lobby/front desk and did an incredible job planning our excursions with us (all of which were top notch and priced well). Shout out to our man who... More

I personally thought the workers weren't going to be as interactive as they were because of the amount of people at the resort but I was wrong !! All though I did not get to meet all of the animation workers, whom were my favorite, they were all very outgoing and knew how to keep everyone happy !! If it... More

This is my third visit to Lifestyle Resort. The first visit was to Tropical the second to Cofresi and the third to Residential Suites. My first 2 visits were perfect. No complains at all. The only complaint I have is on the 3rd visit, the shuttle service was horrible. Took a long time to pick up and when it did... More

I booked the lifestyle resort for 7 nights for my honeymoon. If I did not love my husband enough, I would have left him for taking me to such a bad place. Rooms are not clean nor do they get clean during your stay. The bathrooms are like third world country style. The resorts just try to get you to... More

I stayed at the Presidential Suites and it was perfect...refrigerator full with water, sodas, beer, nice big kitchen with a one bedroom 2 bath condo. Let's hope the tropical will get a face life life the other resort... More

I very much enjoyed the Water Aerobics and Abs exercise with Julio the Rock. Overall, the entire Animation Team: Julio the Rock, Mini Me, Moskito Bite, Lenny Cravitz, Kitty, and Julio Nice are a great team which makes the vacation more enjoyable.

I too was very skeptical about our vacation package. That being said, If you have an open mind and know you are just a regular customer you will have a pretty good time. Drinks: Stay away or don't :) from MamaJuana...its like moonshine! Everything else is low alcohol. Beer is best in the lobby and with a lime :) Tropical... More
