The accommodations and the food are great if you are a member. But if you join or try to upgrade, make sure that everything that the sales staff tells you and what you want is actually in the final contract before you sign or initial it. The sales staff tries to be forget what they used to entice you,

The best thing about this hotel was the staff, the cleaning staff, the front desk staff , all the waiters and the "animacion" staff, specifically "Julio the rock" and Skinny boy Martin. They were always ready to help and making sure that you had a fun time and had all you needed. The food was mediocre, one of the reviews... More

Another great vacation at Lifestyles! We always love our vacation and have settled into a great routine as usual. We always love the poolside entertainers like Giovanni, Mosquito, Julio the Rock, Julio Nice and many others. We have come to know them and they are genuine and helpful! Talk to Ellory for Spa services and Juan Baptisa and Alexander helped... More

Myself and a friend went here last April. It was a fantastic trip! It was such an amazing trip, that we booked again and are heading back in May. The food was amazing, the staff were so helpful and friendly. The entertainment was off the carts!!! The rooms i'd admit were mediocre, but clean. So we were ok with that.... More

This hotel is basic at best. We stayed here when it was called Lifestyle Tropical Beach Resort and Spa and while it was all inclusive, they followed a strict band based system where your treatment was dictated by the color of band you wore. Additionally, it was impossible to avoid timeshare people who won't even let you eat in peace.... More

The aqua classes with Julio the Rock and "Skinny" were the best. Good for everyone; young and older. The Margaritas were great!! The beach could have been cleaner. The only thing I did not like is the VIP segregation. As a guest, I could not tell which areas were open for RCI Owners. All of the areas were marked VIP;... More

Apparently my first review of this trip was deleted.. Let's try one more time! We vacationed here for a week in August, with extended family. There were 20 of us in total, so we choose to stay in rooms in the "beach" section (apparently they have renamed it, causing the first review to be deleted). The staff is super friendly,... More

I was nervous reading all the reviews before going to Lifestyle but it turned out to be a wonderful vacation. Not sure where all the bad reviews have come from, but our experience was perfect. We arrived and was booked for the resident's suites, but a beautiful young women named Emily, asked if we could be moved over to the... More

The worst vacation of my life. Very outdated rooms. Expect to be sick for a few days of your vacation. Many people were. Service was below average. Even if I were a VIP member, I still would not travel to this destination. The low life in the hats and yellow shirts are relentless in trying to sell you time shares.... More
