I really enjoyed my trip to LHVC in Puerto Plata. We stayed at the Presidential Suites and it is by far the best place to stay besides one of the nicer villas and it has FREE WI-FI. Daniel and the PS reception staff were superb and provided the BEST customer service with a smile at the whole resort. The rooms... More

Great vacation! The staff was really attentive and hospitable. Our waiter from the Casablanca (Jose Rafael) was superb. He was the best waiter they had and we always made sure to sit in his area. Entertainment was also great. The VIP party was awesome. Mr Salami Strong was fun and energetic and set the stage for people to have a... More

Weather was wonderful, and there was always someone there to help. They bent over backward to accommodate us. There was a greeting that included a timeshare hello, but they were not pushy. Said we were not interested, and we were on our way, having fun the entire time. The only drawback - unless you are a gold member, the wifi... More

This resort, even as it gets bigger and bigger, still has a phenomenal foundation - the staff. Miriam in the Lobby bar is outstanding. She never forgets a face or a drink and will have one waiting there for you 1/2 the time! Sisa, from housekeeping, did an outstanding job in cleaning my room. It was always done promptly and... More

The room was ok, the shower worked great. We had a slight bug problem but once I talked to house keeping the problem was resolved. The "reservations" for dinner were a bit of a joke as they told us where we were going to eat upon check in. If we did not like those reservations then you could get on... More

They were very outgoing and very friendly with everyone. I can say they were one of the best of entertainers around. I would recommend this resort... More
