4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a great trip (despite the yucky weather). Everyone at the resort was wonderful and so friendly. We were "VIP", which really only meant that we had access to one beach that non-VIP didn't. The only drawback was the transportation to and from the resort from the airport. Make sure you don't get ripped off like we were -... More

We took this trip with 3 other couples and the rate was great. Keeping my leading sentence in mind we could not complain because we paid such a great rate for a week long vacation. However, the resort has some issues. I vacation to be low key, relax, meet new people and create memories. Upon our arrival we are plopped... More

The thing I enjoyed the most was the Olympic Games with the animation team especially Mr. Candy Love who made everyone who participated have a real good time and a lot of fun. For that I'm forever grateful and want to get back there as soon as possible.

My husband and I and another couple found this amazing deal to the Tropical and although I read some negative reviews, we decided to give it a try. I am so glad I trusted my instincts! I really don"t know what some people expect. We got everything we expected and so much more. The food at the buffets was terrific.... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed at the tropical in lifestyle resorts, I can't say anything bad about my week there! The staff is just incredible, always smiling and aiming to please us. The food is great, especially at the buffets. We got fresh towels and blankets everyday which was definitely convenient. The bartenders are great, as are the servers! I... More

We travelled to Lifestyle Holidays Vacation Resort from December 4- December 10 as VIP guests and travelled as a group of 10. We were picked up in a limo, and treated to all sorts of beverages during our short ride to the hotel. Upon arrival the staff was incredible. We stayed in Villa A-1 and I was blown a way... More

I am a timeshare owner so there is a certain level of lets say ambance that I am use to. The flight in wasn't bad at all then the cab from the airport was the same price as the resort preferred service, but the taxi was a better ride to me because you're not squished in with others. Apon arrival... More

The tropical lifestyle resort and spa was awesome. That is if your VIP of course. When we first got there we got a terrible room and choose to get the VIP package. It's worth the money to be vip. The entertainment staff was amazing. Especially Romeo and Jose (papi). They made it a lot of fun and made our vacation... More

That was the first thing that was said to me when I drove in this resort. I went with my boyfriend for four nights early December. It was my first time out of the country and we flew into the further of the two airports (STI). We were greeted very nicely and had no problems getting our room. twenty minutes... More

First time visiting the Dominican Republic and wouldn't have spent it any other way. Moskito and Papi were the highlight of my trip. Those gentleman kept the entertainment going throughout my stay. Enjoyed the food and variety of drinks. Just wished they stocked my fridge with more beer more often.
