Me and my family had a blast! The food was amazing! The beach was amazing. I came with a big group and there was something to do for everyone! Julio Nice taught my daughter how to dance! My nieces and nephews thought he was absolutely amazing. He was so much fun with all the activities everyday! Such a wonderful man!... More

People- friendly. Some of the bartenders could be moody. Friendly then somber the next time. Housekeeping was always friendly and efficient. Room- Clean but needs updating badly. Our room had mismatched tiles, broken shower head, needed painted etc Checking in - brutal! There's no air conditioning except in your room. Lines are long and the explanation for charges is not...

Food was good, drinks were plentiful, alcohol was sub par. The VIP Beach was great... but to clear up the confusion surrounding this amenity. At best depending on your reservation you have access to 1 VIP beach....there are several VIP beaches but only "Lifestyle Members" can access them. The other resort "Confersi Palm" is beautiful and has nicer pools and... More

This was by far the worst vacation experience of my life. I was most disappointed with the service, cleanliness, beaches, and overall experience at Lifestyle's The Tropical. Upon arrival we had to wait in line for approximately 30 minutes in the lobby with about 20 other guests. Once we reached the counter we were greeted and given a room number.... More

The accomodations were very nice. The thing that made this trip difficult in the beginning was that no one explained how anything worked when we checked into the all inclusive resort. We had to figure it out on our own and were very disappointed in the process. Once we figured everything out the resort was great! The staff next to... More
