We went for a week and couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. The food was incredible. We ate at a few of the restaurants which were absolutely fabulous. Even at the buffet there was always a wide variety of options for all tastes. Our room was right at the Tropical which was so convenient to access many amenities. Our room was... More

This was not my first time at the tropical at lifestyles and certainly won't be my last. Every time I go I am always 100% pleased with the service, food, cleanliness, and staff. Each trip I experienced different entertainment from the animation team. Everyone made my trips a memorable one. The person that went out of there way to make... More

Great trip. Beautiful beaches. Drunk girls everywhere. And the animation staff Romeo and Moskito they are the best if you come you must meet them. Don't miss the V.I.P pool party or the welcome party. The nightly shows re great and you can meet more of the animation staff there as well.

I recently booked through Otel.com. The major thing that is not mentioned, is that unless you book directly with Lifestyle Vacations you are restricted on where you can eat (this means buffet meals only), and which beach you can step onto (if any at all). The resort is stunning which really make your personal treatment stand out. My flight was... More

Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort & and Spa is a great vacation. You must educate yourself before going to this hotel and there is a lot of negativity about this time share, the shuttles t and from the airport, check-in and where to eat and enjoy yourself. I booked my recent trip and stay at the Presidential Suites Cofresi by Lifestyle... More

My wife and I (in our active 60's) had a fantastic time here. I can't understand what any of the negative comments were all about. Some people are just picky-picky-picky. The staff was consistently attentive and helpful, the accommodatons were superb. Activities were non-stop. Of particular note was the Water Aerobics supervised by (believe it or not) Romeo (Romeo911WOW), who... More
